In men, testosterone is the primary sex hormone. Testosterone is necessary for the normal development and function of the genitals, as well as for the formation of muscle and the growth of facial and body hair.
Testosterone promotes fat burning, is necessary for memory and heart health, and is involved in the production of red blood cells and sperm. In other words, it is critical for us to feel our best. That is why it is critical to have your testosterone levels checked.
If you have a testosterone test, your doctor will tell you what your average testosterone level is. In men, testosterone levels should range between 350 and 1,100 nanograms per deciliter. If your total testosterone level is less than 350 ng/dL, you may be diagnosed with hypogonadism (testosterone deficiency).
Conversely, this is the total level of testosterone in your blood, which can be further classified into three categories.
Free testosterone, also known as 'unbound testosterone,' accounts for approximately 2% of total testosterone levels. This type exerts positive effects on your muscles, metabolism, and other body parts, it even benefits your drive and self-esteem!
Albumin-bound testosterone accounts for roughly one-third of total testosterone (38%). Albumin is a protein that binds to testosterone weakly and transports it through the bloodstream. Because testosterone has a high affinity for albumin, it releases the hormone whenever the body requires them.
As a result, when you hear the phrase "bioavailable testosterone," it refers to the maximum amount of testosterone that your body can use. This is the sum of free and albumin-bound testosterone levels in the blood.
SHBG-bound Testosterone on the other hand accounts for roughly two-thirds of your total testosterone, or 60%, and is considered inactive. Because testosterone is tightly bound to SHBG, it cannot be broken down even when needed by the body. SHBG levels are frequently associated with low free testosterone levels. As a result, your muscles, brain, and organs receive less testosterone.
In this article, we are not going to focus on the negative consequences of lower testosterone levels or hypogonadism.
Rather, we will zone in on how to optimize free testosterone levels in healthy men for fat loss, physique enhancement and faster recovery.Imagine tapping into that 60% of that unused, inactive reserve of SHBG-bound testosterone that is already inside the body. Or stimulating the reproductive organ to produce more testosterone. Or stopping the androgen’s conversion to estrogen -- yes, that same hormone infamous for giving healthy males those unbecoming “man boobs” and turning that focused, unstoppable motivation into an erratic, emotional wreck.

Compounds that Free up Testosterone in the Blood (Science-proven)
Clinical studies have shown that SHBG can bind to various hormones circulating in the body. Three steroidal compounds were identified namely, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), testosterone (T) and estradiol (E2). An experiment was conducted and saturation tests on sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) were performed revealing that the highest binding capacity was found in DHT, followed by T, then E2.
BioPrimo® (Primobolan) is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derivative that beats testosterone and estradiol when it comes to its ability to attach itself to the steroid binding site of SHBG. This implies that by administering BioPrimo® in small doses, it inhibits testosterone from being bound by SHBG and more T molecules are able to circulate freely in the body to support fat metabolism, muscle hypertrophy, quick recovery from exercise, and overall health maintenance.
Our recommended dose of BioPrimo® (Primobolan) for physically active men is 0.5ml twice a week. If you are using other hormone or peptide supplements, Monday and Thursday are the best days to dose it. Your total amount should be about 100 mg per week at 100 mg/ml.
The ability of HCG to mimic luteinizing hormone (LH) is the main mechanism to keep in mind when studying its role in the context of physique enhancement and rejuvenation. The main gonadotropins in the body responsible for the production of male and female sex hormones are luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). To simplify one of its main benefits in healthy males, HCG functions similarly to exogenous LH.
Because LH is the primary gonadotropin responsible for stimulating natural testosterone production, this is advantageous for a man looking to optimize his testosterone levels to enhance his physical form and endurance. When LH is secreted, it instructs the testicles to produce more testosterone, and HCG exerts the same effects thus boosting endogenous testosterone levels.
This is the primary reason why BIO-HCG® (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is being used by men under 40 in their lifestyle regimen to benefit from supraphysiologic levels of Testosterone. According to an article from the New England of Medicine Journal, supraphysiologic levels of testosterone, particularly when combined with strength training, encourage fat-free mass and enhance muscle size and strength in normal men.
We recommend a dose of 0.5 ml (1250 IU) of BIO-HCG® (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) administered through subcutaneous injection 2x a week.
Re-Charge® (Arimistane) is an aromatase inhibitor (AI) often incorporated into testosterone boosting protocols. An Aromatase Inhibitor is a very powerful substance that blocks the conversion of natural testosterone to estradiol, a type of estrogen produced by the enzyme aromatase. The compound's ability to lower estrogen levels while boosting testosterone to increase muscle mass and shred fat makes it the perfect addition to any workout routine.
Re-Charge® (Arimistane) interferes with estrogen synthesis by binding to the enzyme aromatase, eliminating the scenario of excessive estrogen levels. This prevents water retention, fat gain, mood swings, gynecomastia, and healthy men will have more testosterone flowing freely through their bloodstream, giving them incredible energy. An added benefit of this "anti-estrogen" compound is that it permanently binds to the aromatase enzyme, preventing rebound effects or causing estrogen to rise at a later time.
Another reason Re-Charge® (Arimistane) helps break down stubborn fat faster is because it inhibits the effects of cortisol which may slow the metabolism and cause fat and water to accumulate. Overall, the addition of Arimistane at 25 mg or 1 ml daily into your protocol works best to maintaining the proper balance of cortisol, testosterone and estrogen helping normal men to achieve an enviable physique. The less body fat you have and the less water you have stored under your skin, the more you can see through your hard-earned vascularity and lean muscle mass.
