Coming fresh off rumors of a promising new test booster earlier this month, we have confirmation that Antaeus Labs is ready to release Ultra Test this week. Ultra Test is slated to be the one of the first in the next generation of botanical-based testosterone enhancing options that requires no additional PCT or estrogen blocker. Antaeus Labs has released the final ingredient panel, and the lineup sounds even better than previously thought.
As expected, Ultra Test will feature breakthrough compound Geranylgeraniol, which in some studies out of Japan has been shown to double testosterone production in animals 1. Additionally, it is shown to increase cyclic AMP (cAMP)/protein kinase (PKA) which enhances natural steroidogenic production of testosterone 2.
This is a huge win in the realm of natural testosterone boosters because the cAMP/PKA pathway is the gatekeeper of testosterone biosynthesis, meaning Geranylgeraniol could be the key to keeping the body’s natural test production high at any age. The other major player in the industry that has an effect on this system is forskolin, but Geranylgeraniol has a much higher bioavailability and puts less stress on the GI system.
Other main ingredients include noted test boosting compound Tognkat Ali, widely known for its effect not only on testosterone levels, but overall athletic performance 3, and Phytol, a compound chemically similar to Geranylgeraniol that acts as a complementary aromatase inhibitor. This means that Phytol blocks the conversion of testosterone to estradiol and therefore estrogen production, while also promoting further test production 4.
