Why is this a better AI?
Licogenix has quite a few benefits that make it the ideal supplement for virtually any situation, such as a PCT or as a leaning formula. The Licogenix complex includes seven well known potent aromatase inhibitors - these look to be the strongest naturally occurring molecules we are aware of. There is no doubt, Licogenix is the best aromatase inhibiting supplement available – no other product even comes close – no matter if you’re using it as a muscle builder, to help with fat loss, or as a PCT. Additionally, Licogenix includes other ingredients with crucial benefits: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hepatoprotective , and insulin sensitizing.
In the case of a PCT, you need a formula that will be a strong inhibitor of aromatase and will let your natural testosterone production bounce back to normal again by blocking conversion of circulating testosterone to estrogen. When a cycle is over, levels of exogenous and endogenous androgens have decreased which is complicated by the fact that using exogenous androgens causes androgen receptor internalization, this is a method your body uses to maintain homeostasis, or balance. What does this mean? It means that it’s going to be harder to build muscle and burn fat. This is where the benefits of Licogenix really stand out.
Increased Sensitivity to Insulin
Licogenix lets you take complete advantage of circulating testosterone and insulin levels by increasing sensitivity to insulin through inhibition of PTPBI. PTPB1-null, - which means they don’t have PTPB1 - are known to be healthy, have low levels of body fat and are resistant to obesity caused by diet. Licogenix includes five active molecules which are powerful inhibitors of the PTP1B enzyme. The most potent of these can be compared to synthetic PTP1B inhibitors from the standpoint of effectiveness, and combining all five will result in powerful effects as far as nutrient partitioning, without any chance of hypoglycemia.
PTPB1 functions by “switching off” the insulin receptor – also “switching off” individuals with impaired fasting glucose that have high amounts of PTPB1.
A very important benefit of Licogenix is the fact that it can function as an antioxidant. Naturally occurring Antioxidants contain a phenolic group that allows free radical scavenging such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). Free radicals have the ability to cause problems in virtually every part of your body and it’s been indicated that ROS is involved in almost every major state of disease known; this includes heart disease, the number one killer in America. The Licogenix formula includes several antioxidants that are known to be effective against ROS.
When human neuroblastoma cells were exposed to H2O2 (ROS), there was a reduction in antioxidant enzymes, cell viability and levels of intracellular glutathione along with an increase in intracellular oxidative stress. Cell viability fell to 26.6% when compared to control levels. H2O2 damage stopped after pretreatment with the compounds contained in Licogenix. Several of these ingredients can restore decreased intracellular glutathione levels; can reverse the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase, even at low dosages.
