ATD Plus is an optimising complex for the endocrine system, particularly active through reducing oestrogen and cortisol levels. It contains ATD (1,4,6-Androstatriene-3,17-dione) and adaptogenic herbs: Rhodiola Rosea and Ashwagandha.
- Reduces oestrogen levels
- Can increase testosterone levels
- Allows to reduce excess water under the skin
- Regulates cortisol
- Reduces the risk of gynecomastia
- Affects well-being
- Supports fat reduction
- Reduces stress and anxiety
An excess of oestrogens and cortisol are problems that most anabolic-androgenic steroid users have to face. In order to provide a perfect environment for muscle development and to minimise the risk of health complications, it is necessary to give a lot of importance to controlling these hormones.
Oestrogens are produced from androgens, such as testosterone and androstenedione, with the help of the enzyme aromatase. The activity of the enzyme needs to be reduced to prevent excessive conversion. ATD exhibits the ability to block aromatase irreversibly. It means that the enzyme’s molecules do not become active again when the agent stops working, which prevents the common rebound effect.
Reducing the level of female hormones prevents excessive water retention, low mood and libido, and the nightmare of all bodybuilders - gynecomastia. Excess breast tissue is very hard to get rid of, so anti-oestrogen prevention is common sense.
Adaptogens, such as Rhodiola and Ashwagandha, provide cortisol control; the hormone can be produced in excess during frequent and long trainings. Its excess has significant negative effects on the development of muscle tissue. It can inhibit protein synthesis, accelerate muscle catabolism and stimulate fatty tissue storage.
Both cortisol and oestradiol make fat reduction harder when in excess; they are also blamed for the difficulties connected with burning fatty tissue in certain body parts. Reducing these hormones allows to get rid of fat more easily and prevents the storage of new energy reserves.
Using ATD Plus can have a fantastic effect on the mood. The modulation of stress reactions and reducing anxiety are the most interesting effects caused by adaptogens. They can also reduce fatigue and boost energy, which translates into greater motivation to train.
Maintaining a low amount of water under the skin allows to hone the body and highlight details, such as muscle separation, which gives a fantastic visual effect.
