The primary functions of TestoGain™ are to support the natural production of testosterone and other androgens by gonadal tissue in both genders, and to support how tissues throughout the body respond to testosterone.This is accomplished by supporting the function of testosterone producing glands in both gender, and by supporting the function of testosterone tissues through the use of herbs that mimic the actions of testosterone.
Promotes optimal vitality, sense of well being & mood.*
Supports healthy sexual function in men and women.*
Favorably affects androgen receptors, supporting healthy testosterone function*
Promotes healthy function of bone, heart, brain, muscles and other testosterone responsive tissues*
Enhanced stamina and general strengthening*
May use without testosterone, or with bioidentical testosterone to support healthy testosterone function.*
Promote production of testosterone by gonadal tissue in both genders
Promote production of other androgens by adrenal glands.
Mimic specific functions of testosterone, thereby acting as testosterone functional agonists.
How is TestoGain™ used?
TestoGain™ is used by healthcare professionals to increase the natural production of testosterone in men and women, and to support the health of tissues that respond to testosterone.
TestoGain™ may be used instead of testosterone replacement therapy in both men and women. Or, it may be used with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), to improve the safety and effectiveness of TRT in both men and women. TestoGain™ improves patients with many conditions including:
Men or women who do not want to use Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). Both men and women who want to avoid TRT to avoid the risks associated with TRT can use TestoGain™ to safely raise endogenous testosterone production and also have regular intake of herbs that protect prostate tissue.
Men or women who are on Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) who still have symptoms. Many patients on TRT still have symptoms of low testosterone even though their lab tests confirm optimal testosterone levels. This is often due to testosterone receptor resistance that develops in some patients on TRT. Testosterone receptor resistance is common in patients with a history of excessive use of testosterone.
Men or women on TRT who want to decrease side effects & risks associated with TRT – TestoGain™ is taken by patients on TRT to decrease the risks of testosterone side effects. Maca protects prostate tissue in men, while Tribulus terrestris decreases ovarian cysts in women.
Men or women who want to wean off of TRT can use TestoGain™ a month before weaning off of TRT to
successfully wean off of TRT without symptoms of testosterone withdrawal.
Use in Menopause Types® 2, 5, 8 & 11. For perimenopause, menopause & postmenopause.
