I’ve told you that the majority of “bodybuilding supplements” are bullshit, and I stand by that.
However, today I want to talk about one product that certainly isn’t.
Testosterone boosters are notorious for being scam products that don’t do what they claim to.
Sure, there are some good herbal supplements that will boost libido and raise testosterone slightly, but not enough to feel a difference in the gym or gain any extra muscle.
Although testosterone boosters are one category of supplements that I’ve mostly avoided, I have tried probably half a dozen different ingredients and formulas, but none have done anything more than make me a tiny bit hornier than usual.
As a result, I had written off test boosters altogether and never even paid attention when a new one was getting any kind of hype.
But that changed recently…
I’ve finally found the most powerful (and legal) testosterone booster that’s not a harsh pro-hormone product with a bunch of nasty side effects.
And the difference with this test booster over the others I’ve tried in the past is that you feel this product kick in right away.
I’m talking within the first 24-48 hours.
And this is a testosterone booster you feel in the gym, as well as the bedroom.
The product was originally designed for post cycle therapy — a recovery phase following the use of anabolic steroids to restore the body’s natural testosterone production and avoid the side effects from rebounding estrogen levels. Hence the name, Red PCT.
However, what makes Red PCT so special is that you can use it as a standalone testosterone booster, rather than part of a PCT protocol.
And it works phenomenally for this purpose.
The Benefits of Red PCT
There’s a lot to love about this particular testosterone booster because it does so much more than increase your testosterone production.
Here are the benefits of Red PCT:
- Increases testosterone
- Decreases estrogen
- Decreases cortisol
- Promotes lean mass gains
- Increases metabolism
- Protects the liver
- Increases libido
- Improves sleep quality
- Improves sense of well-being
Unlike some test boosters that barely increase your serum testosterone levels, Red PCT increases your free testosterone — the testosterone that actually matters for building muscle and increasing sex drive.
Free testosterone isn’t bound to sex hormone binding globulin, meaning it’s biologically active and available to attach to androgen receptors in your muscle to support strength and muscle growth.
This is why some men might feel that they are candidates for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) due to lack of libido, increased fat gain, lethargy, and so on whenever their serum testosterone is in the normal range — they often have low free testosterone, which is what we need to feel good and perform our best.
Since Red PCT boosts free testosterone, the effects are noticeable right away.
Red Supplements even provides blood work proof from one of their customers to prove that their product works. Take a look at these screenshots below.
That’s a huge spike in free testosterone and certainly not what you’d expect from a testosterone booster you can buy over the counter.
Now let’s look at why Red PCT works so well.
What Ingredients Are in Red PCT?
Red PCT is comprised of three primary ingredients:
- An aromatase inhibitor
- An herbal testosterone booster
- A liver cleanser
Arimistane — or androst 3, 5-diene-7, 17-dione (ADD) as its scientifically known — increases testosterone, lowers cortisol (the stress hormone), and blunts estrogen from forming.
Arimistane primarily functions as an aromotase inhibitor (AI) that prevents the side effects associated with high estrogen, such as acne, excess water retention, gynecomastia (bitch tits), mood swings, and erectile dysfunction
Unless you’re using anabolic steroids or you have a lot of body fat, you likely don’t have excess levels of estrogen. However, you can still benefit from having lower estrogen that creates a leaner-looking physique by removing excess water weight.
Unlike prescription aromotase inhibitors, Arimistane won’t drop your estrogen too low, which has its own set of nasty side effects. By following the recommended dosing (3 per day for use as a standalone test booster) your estrogen levels should stay on the lower end of the healthy range.
What’s especially beneficial about Arimistane is how it decreases cortisol because not only does cortisol make you feel stressed out, it also has a serious negative impact on your ability to build muscle and burn fat. Lower cortisol makes you look and feel much better.
2. Chlorophytum Borivilianum
Chlorophytum borivilianum is an Indian herb (known safed musli) primarily used as an aphrodisiac, but it has some other interesting qualities, as well. In addition to raising libido and creating stronger erections, studies have shown chlorophytum borivilianum to improve sleep quality and increase growth hormone (GH) release in the brain.
The research is far from conclusive, but so far it looks to be a very promising herb.
3. N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC)
NAC is added in this formula to detox the liver from oral steroids or other compounds one might have taken during a steroid cycle.
I don’t think there’s enough NAC in this formula to get any of the other wonderful benefits from this wonderful supplement, so I recommend taking this on its own if you want to get the full effects.
How to Use Red PCT as a Testosterone Booster
As I’ve mentioned, there are two ways to use Red PCT and the one I’m focusing on is using it as a test booster. Red Supplements recommends using 1 to 3 capsules per day if you are using Red PCT to increase testosterone and aren’t worried about recovering from a steroid cycle.
I started at 3 per day and then tapered down towards the end of my run with Red PCT. Most guys go up to 3 per day, but you wouldn’t want to go over that.
Remember, more isn’t necessarily better because you don’t want to completely eliminate your estrogen. The side effects of having no estrogen can be just as harsh or worse (no more erections, terrible mood swings, joint pain, etc.) than having too much estrogen.
If you have questions about dosing, please consult with your doctor and the folks at Red Supplements.
How to Use Red PCT After an Anabolic Steroid Cycle
For this, I have to turn to someone who knows what they’re talking about.
Here’s what steroid expert, John Doe, suggests:
“If you had used anabolic steroids then again, this all depends on the half life of what you’d used.
For long acting testosterones you’d want to wait 2 weeks after your last shot to begin Red-PCT.
Long esters such as enanthates and cypionates require a full 2 week waiting period so you can take full advantage of PCT while testosterone levels are not as high as they were on cycle.
For short ester testosterone like propionates you will want to start Red-PCT 5-7 days post cycle.
This will ensure that recovery is geared more around already falling levels of testosterone rather than synthetically elevated testosterone levels.”
Does Red PCT Have Any Negative Side Effects?
According to Red Supplements, Red PCT has no known side effects.
I have to agree, I felt amazing on Red PCT and experienced zero negative side effects from it.
Does Red PCT Need to be Cycled?
Yes, Red Supplements suggests taking a couple of weeks off after 30 days of continuous use.
Although Arimistane is not extremely potent and lacks the harsh side effects of illegal drugs, we’re talking about our hormones here and it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
My Take on Red PCT
If I had to describe my experience with Red PCT in one word, I would say INVIGORATED!
My strength was up in the gym.
My sex drive was through the roof.
And I just felt great all day with Red PCT. I definitely noticed the decreased cortisol and overall sense of well-being.
However, I didn’t notice any change in sleep quality. I already sleep well, so maybe that’s why.
But I really enjoyed the increased vascularity from the AI.
If you’re looking for a legal testosterone booster that actually works and has no known side effects, look no further than Red PCT.
