Can Bang Master Blaster Raise Testosterone?
University proven Bang Master Blaster has increased benefits!
Caffeine is a widely used ergogenic aid that benefits physical and cognitive sports performance, but new research suggests a testosterone boosting effect as well. Previously research with caffeine has found increases in muscle performance during subsequent high-intensity exercise performance in well-trained (i.e., maximal squat exceeding twice body mass) individuals. One of the lesser known benefits of caffeine is its ability to stimulate anabolic hormones. A previous study by Beaven et al. attributed the ergogenic effects of caffeine to its testosterone raising abilities. Another study found that the combination of lactate and caffeine had direct testosterone-enhancing effects in test tubes of Leydig cells (i.e., the cells that produce testosterone). Exciting new research suggests that a dose of 400 milligrams of caffeine had testosterone boosting effects.
Researchers gave rugby players 400 mg. of caffeine during halftime and found that post-game testosterone levels were increased by 70 percent after caffeine administration. While no subsequent performance effects were observed, and no between-trial differences existed for blood lactate, salivary cortisol, or cognitive function, there was a 70 percent increase in testosterone. Practitioners may wish to consider using caffeine to boost testosterone levels. Bang Master Blaster Contains 350 mg. of caffeine per serving, so if you wanted to experiment with the performance enhancing effects, one could use just over a scoop of Bang Master Blaster to reach the 400 mg. caffeine threshold.
