Before I get into this article, I want to keep things real with all of my readers. I AM NOT NATURAL. I have not been natural for many years now and I take TRT through my doctor (testosterone replacement therapy).
I am not down with lying to you, and I'm sick of the whole “natural aesthetics movement” which is absolutely the furthest thing from the truth in most cases nowadays. If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck it's probably a duck.
I'm here to just give you my take on a legal and safe alternative product on the market that you can use to increase strength, muscle mass, or dry out and harden up WHILE DIETING.
That's right, I said “WHILE DIETING.” You see, I'm not going to promise you anything here…
If you don't eat clean then you WON'T HARDEN UP and if you don't eat enough then you WON'T BUILD MUSCLE, and if you're not committed to doing that then STOP READING NOW and don't even waste your money!
But if you're committed to working hard and looking for a way to get a boost in the gym and some testosterone building effects then I'm here to share a brief description on a supplement that can help you.
Much of the time it's very difficult to read beyond the GET RESULTS part of a supplement claim and really get into the science that's behind the products.
I'm here to cut that part of the work out of the equation for you and explain this supplement in an easy-to-understand way for you. I'm also here to share my experience on the benefits of using Red Growth stacked with my normal TRT regimen.
Red Growth is a new formula by Red Supplements that is comprised of 3 major components which make the supplement so effective. These components include a testosterone production catalyst, an androgen precursor, and a testosterone up-regulator!
The science behind Red Growth goes far beyond just a single compound that is solely designed to increase rates of strength and muscle mass gain.
This is a synergistic combination of compounds that are designed to produce more testosterone, increase androgens to give a hardening/drying effect to the muscles, and a testosterone up-regulator to further assist the muscle building process after the increased testosterone production has been stimulated in your own body.
The combination of N-Methyl-D-Aspartic Acid combined with 1-Dehydroepiandosterone (1-DHEA) and Chlorophylum Borivilianum Extract provides the necessary ingredients for your own body to produce more of it's own testosterone along with more DHT producing androgens.
A few years back a chemical called D-aspartic acid became popular in the bodybuilding circles for it's proclaimed ability to produce more natural testosterone by signaling the brain to send a signal to the testes to produce more testosterone.
Because of that, D-aspartic acid not only became popular with men who wanted to increase testosterone during their exercise regimen, but it became almost more popular with guys who were looking for a decent post cycle therapy.
Little did we know at the time that the primary mechanism for D-aspartic acids ability to increase testosterone levels was actually a synthesized amino acid it produced called N-Methyl-D-Aspartic Acid.
N-Methyl-D-Aspartic Acid is deemed to be 100x more potent than D-aspartic acid. So why would you buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Doesn't it make more sense just to go straight to the source of testosterone production?
N-Methyl-D-Aspartic Acid serves as the testosterone production catalyst in the Red Growth formula. While increased testosterone can be a great thing, it helps to have increased DHT levels in the mix if you're looking for a more balanced formula that also yields muscle-hardening properties to it.
1-DHEA (Androgen precursor/hardening agent)
In terms of muscle hardness and strength levels, DHT levels in the body play an enormous role. While testosterone acts as the main androgen in the body, most of the anabolic effects that happen to the body are caused by DHT levels that carry out the signals from testosterone to different muscle tissues.
The addition of 1-DHEA in the Red growth formula was to stimulate a 1-2 punch! The synergistic activity of N-Methyl-D-Aspartic acid and 1 DHEA start working together in higher than optimal levels than what our bodies could naturally produce!
Unlike regular DHEA which can elevate estrogen levels during use, 1-DHEA has no estrogen conversion at all. This causes the user to experience a very distinct hardening effect in the muscles and helps create a dryer look if the user is dieting!
This was where Red Growth really shined for me. I noticed a drying effect from it and I'm suspecting the 1-DHEA complimented my normal testosterone replacement dose pretty well.
A guy like myself isn't using this product for any testosterone increases since my body is already getting an exogenous source of that.
I would presume an athlete that was in a low to normal testosterone range would experience a huge boost from using Red Growth.
Increased DHT levels and anti-estrogen properties are still something I benefit from, ESPECIALLY WHEN TRYING TO GET DICED!
If I had to provide a steroid that Red Growth closely mimics I'd say the steroid Masteron because it created a new level of muscle hardness for me during use.
At least that was my experience with it, for what I was using it for pertaining to my own goals and training.
Unlike most prohormones that cause drastic water retention and lethargy in the user, Red Growth is a more smooth and steady flow of results as opposed to a big bang.
While I cannot accurately speak in terms of how much strength this product provides for someone who is natural versus someone on TRT such as myself, I can tell you that I started to look a lot harder after I began using it.
Chlorophytum Borivilianum Extract (testosterone up-regulator)
Chlorophytum Borivilianum extract has long been used in Indian medicine for it's sexual enhancing properties. This naturally occurring herb contains properties similar to Viagra, causing increases in libido and bedroom performance.
This herb puts the user in a more frequented state of arousal and helps provide longer and harder erections during usage. This can also be used to help premature ejaculation during sexual activity.
Studies have shown that this action is due to significant improvements in your all-around hormone profile when compared to results of placebo groups during trials.
Along with improvements in sexual performance and marked improvements in hormone profiles, Chlorophytum Borivilianum extract has also exhibited scale-weight increases in individuals who trained with weights.
It's considered an overall strength and performance supplement along with being a mild aphrodisiac, causing marked improvements in sexual arousal and performance.
The 2 biggest improvements for me while using Red Growth
The 2 most noticeable improvements for me were improved sleep and the muscle-hardening effect I had experienced while using Red Growth.
Getting decent sleep is something that I desperately struggle with. If something is supposed help with sleep then I've probably been there and done it by now.
I've used melatonin, ambien, along with benzos and at one point had a bad physical dependency on benzos. If I'm able to sleep 5-6 hours a night most nights then I'm doing good.
I will admit that bad sleep had caused an over-reliance on caffeine to an unhealthy level at one point with me. A couple cups of coffee a day is one thing, but constant caffeine throughout the entire day is another.
I noticed that my sleep remarkably improved when using Red Growth and I would have several nights in a row where I could get a full 8 hours of rest.
This is something that happens so infrequently that I cannot even tell you the last time I remember sleeping like that. The improvement in my sleep may have helped fat-loss also, since most of the body's fat-loss actions take place during restful sleep.
And like I said before, a harder appearance was the other main result I noticed during my 8 week run of Red Growth.
I will personally use this product again for the DHT producing properties that I felt were similar to Masteron at a lower cost to the user. One of the major drawbacks with Masteron is that it can be very expensive.
I have found Red Growth to be a great addition to my normal TRT regimen and it'd be a great add-on with a regular cycle. As a standalone product for a natural trainee I think it could produce some good results in a 30 day time-frame, but I would probably go 60 days myself.
I don't like doing anything for only 30 days. If I'm going to use something then I like to be on it long enough to ensure good results are achieved. Especially when it's a product that causes steady increases in results and not one of those quick-bang prohormones that makes you feel like straight garbage!
Oh yea, and that's the last thing I'd like to talk about concerning Red Growth; while I cannot speak for everybody, MY MOOD WAS FANTASTIC WHILE USING RED GROWTH!
