AUSTRALIA’S new anti-aging drug, testosterone cyp, has the potential to make a big difference in how athletes can boost their testosterone naturally.
Testosterone cypeptide-1 is a compound that was discovered as a precursor to testosterone.
It’s not a hormone naturally produced in the body and it’s also known to be in the brain.
It was discovered by researchers at the University of Sydney and is one of the most powerful compounds available in the world.
“It can help with testosterone synthesis and therefore can help you get into the top-end levels of testosterone,” Professor Tony Coughlan said.
“And we believe that by enhancing testosterone, you can achieve a level of performance that is really really, really competitive.”
The researchers used mice that were given a cocktail of testosterone cypeps and the compound that had been used to boost the animals’ testosterone.
“They were given testosterone cyps, and the mice that had the testosterone cyptide in the cocktail had higher testosterone levels,” Professor Coughlin said.
But not everyone was impressed by the results.
“I think this is very exciting, but I don’t think this will be able to really get people off testosterone,” Dr David Cavanagh said.”[T]here are some pretty severe side effects, and some people may feel a bit nauseous or something like that, which is not something that can be overlooked.”
So the idea that it could be able get people back to a level where they can compete at a high level of sport is not really a good outcome.
“Testosterone has been around for more than 150 years and it has a long history of being used in human performance.
Professor Coughlyn said he was very interested in the potential benefits of testosterone-boosting compounds.”
Tests have shown that when you use testosterone-enhancing compounds, you actually increase testosterone levels, and you increase your testosterone levels you also increase your performance,” he said.
He said it was possible to improve the performance of people who had been using testosterone without the drugs.”
We can’t say with certainty what the effects will be but it’s very unlikely that this will have any effect on athletes who have been using these compounds,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.
But the findings will be interesting to other scientists who work in the field of testosterone.”[These studies] are a bit more controversial and controversial in the scientific community than other people, and there is an argument that the data could be used to justify a new drug, so it’s really important to look at the data and see if it’s useful,” Professor Keesing said.
Dr Cavanah said it could also be beneficial for other sports.”
The potential benefits to other sports is huge,” he explained.”
You have athletes competing in the Olympic Games or you have athletes in other sports competing at a level that is competitive, and it might be beneficial to have that boost.
“There’s no reason why you couldn’t also boost your testosterone and make a positive contribution to performance in other areas.”
Dr Cavenagh said testosterone is a very important hormone for bodybuilding.
“This is an amazing compound and it is the most important hormone in the human body,” he pointed out.
“Testosterone can be a powerful agent for bodybuilders.”
He said the new study, along with the previous research that showed the compound could boost performance, was exciting.
“In our experience, we see a lot of improvements in the performance levels of people when they have these compounds in the supplement,” he added.
“As well as the benefits of this, this compound is a little bit less toxic, so there’s some safety issues.”
Professor Cavenham said the study had been a lot more expensive than other studies he had done and had to be funded by the Australian Federal Government.
“For a lot less money, I can do some of the more exciting research in the science community,” he noted.
“But to get funding for this is really quite a big challenge.”
What we’ve done is, we’ve been working with the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council, we’re working with other bodies in the pharmaceutical industry, and we’ve got our own scientists to make sure that we get the right outcomes for this.
