Recently, a customer asked me some questions about the new health protective ingredients in Peak Male.
They were such good questions that I wanted to pass them and the answers to you, too.
The main question is about blocking estrogen, and why Peak Male is so far superior than any other testosterone booster.
This is because of how Peak Male blocks estrogen, but it also unlocks your free testosterone -- in a way that no other testosterone booster does.
See our question and answer below.
Q. Here is the question from Chuck
I am glad to see that Peak Male now has 150 capsules per bottle and I take 5 capsules per day at the same price as the old formula.
Also, I see that DIM has been removed, but I was under the impression that DIM keeps estrogen in check? And I don't see iodine, selenium or chromium?
So how is the new formula better?
A. Here is why Peak Male is so powerful
As you probably saw in Peak Male’s nutrition panel, there are a lot of incredible ingredients in the formula.
The full answer to your question could almost fill a book, but here are the highlights.
In fact, there are eight important updates that we recently made to the Peak Male formula to make it even better for you, resulting in:
- a stronger boost to your T levels
- more protection from the health dangers of stress
- a reduction in the dangerous type of visceral belly fat
- increased blood flow and
- a boost to your important nitric oxide levels
First, the reason for removing DIM is that we added something better called I3C. I3C is hugely popular both as an antioxidant and as a chronic disease fighter. Unlike I3C, there are no published human studies on DIM. However, research on I3C dating back to the 1960s shows DIM is formed naturally when I3C is broken down in the gut. This is one of the reasons we chose I3C over DIM (which your body will naturally produce with I3C). (1)
Second, we added “brassaiopsis glomerulata leaf extract” to the formula because it also blocks aromatase (estrogen synthetase). Aromatase is the enzyme responsible for a key step in the biosynthesis of estrogens through the aromatization of androgens into estrogens. By blocking the Aromatase enzyme with I3C and brassaiopsis glomerulata estrogen synthase is reduced.
Third, we removed iodine, selenium, chromium, and a few other ingredients. Why? Because, by removing some of the common ingredients found in other supplements, it provided more room in the capsules to add higher amounts of other new and unique ingredients not found in other formulas.
Fourth, the most powerful and absolutely unique part of the Peak Male formula are the stress-reducing, health-protecting, immunity-boosting adaptogen herbs. So we increased the adaptogens to have the most potent and effective doses possible in order to make Peak Male far superior to any other men’s health supplement available anywhere.
For example, we boosted all of three 3 primary types of the powerful adaptogen ginseng (white Panax, Korean red Panax, and American ginseng), which has been used for 5,000 years because it:
- reduces stress
- Improves the body’s stress response
- has powerful antioxidant properties
- reduces inflammation
- promotes a better mood and mental clarity
- creates sharper cognition
- reduces fatigue
- improves erectile dysfunction
- boosts immunity and more.
Fifth, we made some adjustments to the formula to give a significant nitric oxide boost. Increasing nitric oxide (NO) is vital for the entire body's health because it is a signaling molecule that relaxes and dilates blood vessels, which in turn increases blood flow to every part of the body.
Sixth, we boosted the formula to make everything even more bioavailable. This means that your body will absorb more of the nutrients, unlike the majority of supplements available.
For example, Shilajit is another one of the powerful adaptogens in Peak Male and, along with our fulvic mineral complex, it contains all 72 trace minerals.
We boosted our entire mineral complex because minerals are essential for your body to absorb the rest of the vitamins in Peak Male properly. Without all of the minerals, your body doesn't absorb vitamins, and all of the trace minerals are vital to overall health.
Peak Make is unique this way, too, as no other men’s supplement does this.
Seventh, we also increased the ingredients in Peak Male that boost testosterone.
Eighth and lastly, as mentioned above, we have two ingredients to reduce estrogen and many ingredients to boost T levels. But we also added a very important and unique ingredient called Divanil (3,4 Divanillyltetrahydrofura). Divanil is one of the very few ingredients, along with Tongkat Ali in Peak Male, with the ability to block SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin). SHBG is what prevents testosterone from being available for use in your body. The only testosterone your body can use is the "free testosterone," which is usually a very small percentage of the total testosterone in your body. Most testosterone is bound by SHBG and not usable, so by blocking SHBG with Divanil, you can significantly increase your free or usable testosterone levels.
There are many other adjustments in the new formula, but this should give you an idea of some of the main ones.
Thanks again, Chuck, for your interest in Peak Male. We are working hard for you and other valued customers like you to continually improve Peak Male and deliver you the highest quality product.
