In an exclusive interview with Wired, the founder of GnC Products, Dr. Michael Pender, discusses how he came to create the testosterone booster known as the GnA Testosterone, and the controversy surrounding the company’s product, which he says has caused a “tremendous amount of stress.”
Dr. Pender was recently approached by Target for testing his product at its stores, and he was initially hesitant about participating in the project.
“I was a little hesitant, but the more I thought about it, the more excited I was,” he told Wired.
“I’m excited to be able to help Target customers in an area they may not have the option to visit.”
The GnA testosterone booster was developed by Dr. Penders team as part of a study to help treat men with prostate cancer.
It is marketed as a treatment for those who have been diagnosed with the disease, but it also has been widely used to help men who have not yet been diagnosed.
GnA is not the only testosterone booster Dr. Janssen and Pender have created.
Other testosterone boosters have also been created, including the GnT Testosterone Booster, GnC testosterone products, and GnC testosterone products.
“Testosterone is the first hormone that your body makes and your body will use it,” Pender explained.
“So we have a number of different testosterone boosters that we’re developing.”
Dr Pender said that he has a number more testosterone boosters planned for Target stores, but he has yet to announce which ones.
“We have several that are not yet launched yet, so we’re hoping to do more,” he said.
“But right now we’re focused on Target stores.”
For the uninitiated, the GnCa testosterone product is made from an amino acid known as glycine.
In addition to being an excellent booster, glycine is a “natural form of testosterone,” which is a type of hormone that is not produced by the body.
The amino acid glycine works in conjunction with the GnAT gene, which allows the body to synthesize testosterone.
The GnC testing booster, on the other hand, uses the glycine amino acid.
Pending the results of the study, Pender and his team will be testing the GnCA testosterone supplement at Target stores for the first time.
“Glycine is one of the most abundant amino acids in our body, so if you can get your hands on glycine it can be really effective at increasing your testosterone production,” Penders senior scientist, Michael W. Smith, explained to Wired.
“It’s a great way to boost your testosterone level, and there are several other supplements that are similar, but they’re more expensive.”
Dr Smith said that although glycine may be a great source of testosterone, it is also a natural form of the hormone.
“The main reason why the GnCT testosterone is so good is that it’s a natural supplement that’s a really good source of glycine,” he explained.
“You’re actually making a synthetic form of it.
It’s just a very natural supplement.”
GnC is not without controversy, however.
Some scientists have raised concerns that the testosterone products may have side effects.
“There is no evidence to suggest that GnC has any negative health effects for men,” Dr. Smith said.
Another issue is that the company is now working on ways to make the testosterone boosters easier to use, so that consumers can make the choice to purchase them.
“One of the challenges of creating this product is that people aren’t always familiar with the products that we make, and people have a limited amount of time,” Dr Smith explained.
“[So] we want to make sure that we’ve given them as much information as possible.”
While Dr. W.
Smith and Dr. S. Smith do not have a financial stake in the company, the team at GnC does.
Pendered has invested a significant amount of his own money into the company.
“For me, I believe it’s worth every penny,” Dr W.S. Smith explained to the publication.
“This is one product that I believe is a really, really good choice for anyone that has low testosterone, especially if they’re trying to increase their testosterone,” Pendered added.
“We’ve done tests to show that we can really deliver these results.”
