Which mass winner is good for your health


It is often said that bodybuilding & fitness is based on qualities such as endurance, the ability to build muscle strength or increase training intensity. That is true, but the question of androgen hormones and their influence on mass gain arises quite often. Without wanting to reduce the debate on the question of the well-known androgenic factors such as testosterone, growth hormone or IGF1, it is correct that without these hormonal factors bodybuilding & fitness would probably be reduced to little….

Can a dietary supplement stimulate or maintain optimal levels of testosterone in the blood? Indeed, an impressive number of variables can play in favor of an increase or decrease in a hormone such as testosterone or other androgens. The negative influence of these variables such as lack of sleep or exhaustion is obviously understandable. Other factors influencing androgen elevations are more difficult to identify as they approximate the complex relationships of cellular and organic biochemistry. Not to mention the even more complex interactions between them, the debate is endless and poorly understood by scientific research.

Virilis V2 from Yam Nutrition, a coherent dietary supplement on the subject of androgens….

With Virilis V2, Yam Nutrition has tried to develop a dietary supplement that integrates perfectly into the diet and supplementation of strength athletes without falling into excessive sterility. Virilis V2 does not offer you false promises with plants of the genus Tribulus terrestris or other plant extracts of this genus that have no scientific relevance. In contrast, Virilis V2 is based on three plants that have already been clinically proven and form an effective synergy complex.

A combination of three plant extracts based on rigorous and credible scientific studies.

The Virilis V2 Plant Extract Complex is based on a nettle root extract associated with saw palmetto and ashwaghanda under patent KSM-66 ™. The nettle root and the lignans it contains have been the subject of clinical studies in relation to a protein, SHBG, whose job it is to attach to testosterone. Scientific studies on aromatase have also been carried out on complex mechanisms, particularly those related to DHT metabolism. The components of the saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) have certain nettle-specific mechanisms, which is why these two plants are often combined.

With the Ashwaghanda KSM-66 ™, a globally recognized, patented adaptogen.

With nettle and saw palmetto extract, Virilis V1 provides 400 mg Ashwaghanda KSM-66 ™. Vegetables under bra evet, 'Ashwaghanda KSM-66 ™ (Withania somnifera) is a plant from the Ayurvedic tradition, which is considered one of the pillars of this traditional medicine of the ancestors. This internationally recognized quality of Ashwagandha has been studied in numerous clinical studies to determine its role in responding to stress and fatigue (adaptogenic properties), focus and alertness, and its influence on sports performance.

The KSM-66 ™ form of Ashwagandha is now based on numerous certifications, including the GMP label (USP, NSF, NPA-UL, WHO), organic certification 100% USDA Organic, GMO-free (Non-GMO Project Verified), gluten-free (GFCO), BSCG-drug free, Kosher, Halal, HACCP ..... The KSM-66 is manufactured according to the ISO 9001: 2008 and GMP (Good Manufacture Practices) standards.

Magnesium bisglycinate, zinc, and vitamin D3 provide you with the metabolic basis for a healthy relationship with testosterone.

In addition to a well-founded selection of plant extracts that have been confirmed by scientific studies, Virilis V2 also offers you the basic and nutritional basics of the metabolism of strength and bodybuilding athletes. Virilis V2 provides 2000 IU of vitamin D3. Vitamin D helps maintain normal muscle function. 40 mg of zinc gluconate has also been added as this trace element helps keep testosterone in the blood normal. As well as vitamin B6, which helps regulate hormonal activity.
