Hormones are the most impactful molecules for augmenting body composition, performance, many other bodily attributes. Estrogen is one such hormone that, when increased, can cause bloating and swelling, altered sex drive, mood swings, weight gain, and even other unwanted effects. Unnatural estrogens are becoming more widespread in the modern world, and natural estrogen levels can increase as a result of certain environments or other physiological stressors. Some of which also increase cortisol, the stress hormone, further disrupting natural endocrine function, and reduce testosterone. Estro-X™ was designed to combat high estrogen levels, restore optimal testosterone concentrations, and manage cortisol.
- KSM-66® supplementation helps increase testosterone in men and reduce stress & cortisol in both men and women.
- Green Tea helps maintain more active testosterone levels by reducing its excretion in the urine.
- SerinAid® reduces cortisol and helps manage physiological responses to stressful situations.
- Atractylodes Macrocephala acts as an aromatase inhibitor, reducing testosterone’s conversion to estrogen.
- DIIM helps detoxify estrogens, limiting their ability to stimulate estrogenic effects.
Estro-X™ is an all-in-one formula sure to improve levels of all three of these key hormones.
Ashwagandha is an ancient ayurvedic herb and adaptogen. KSM-66® is a standardized version that can be trusted to contain necessary quantities of active ingredients.
- Supplementation with Ashwagandha has been demonstrated to improve testosterone levels in healthy men.
- Increased testosterone by Ashwagandha is thought to be the underlying mechanism for improved strength and lean mass and decreased fat mass after Ashwagandha supplementation.
- Doubles as a potent anxiolytic agent to reduce cortisol and anxiety.
Green Tea Leaf Extract
Green Tea contains many polyphenols which are capable of influencing body fat regulation.
- Reduces testosterone conjugation to impotent testosterone glucuronide. In other words, keeps more testosterone around as active, anabolic testosterone.
- Green tea can reduce glucose absorption when consumed before meals, decreasing caloric loads of meals.
- Has evidence of enhancing fat oxidation.
- Boosts metabolic rate, especially when paired with caffeine, to burn more calories.
- Early evidence of one polyphenol in green tea for decreasing myostatin and increasing muscle gain.
SerinAid® phosphatidylserine is a specialized phospholipid with many benefits related to brain and nervous system function, including reduced stress.
- PS may improve memory and lower cortisol levels in the body.
- Parker et al. (2011) discovered subjects who supplemented with PS over two weeks were able to increase the speed of mathematical calculations (20%) and improve answer accuracy (13%) compared to placebo.
Also known as bai-zhu, Atractylodes macrocephala is a plant with anti-estrogen potential.
- Contains aromatase inhibitors
- Aromatase inhibition stops the conversion of testosterone to estrogen
- This helps to keep testosterone levels higher while estrogen levels are suppressed
DIM is a molecule that consists of two indole groups attached to a methine group. It is commonly found in broccoli and holds promise as an aromatase inhibitor.
- DIM has potent effects on estrogen metabolism and is able to keep the body relatively balanced by preventing either drastic increases or decreases in estrogen.
- DIM can both inhibit the aromatase enzyme (and prevent the conversion of testosterone into estrogen) and it can act on more potent forms of estrogen and convert them into less potent forms; this conversion reduces the overall effects of estrogen in the body.
Q: What is the best way to use Estro-X™?
A: As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving (3 capsules) once daily.
Q: Can Estro-X™ be used with any other products?
A: Yes! For the best improvements in testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol profiles, stack Estro-X™ with Test Revolution BLACK.
