Seems to help reduce water retention. I personally like it stacked with Power +.
Unlock the Ability to Lose Weight, Build Muscle, Recover Faster, & Feel Better Overall – Breakthrough CONTROL
Powerful Aromatase Inhibitor & Cortisol Reducer
Breakthrough CONTROL was designed to lower estrogen and cortisol, increase testosterone levels, and improve protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. The result is weight loss, strength increases, faster recovery, and lean muscle gains.
It is an aromatase inhibitor which binds very strongly with the aromatase enzyme and will reduce cortisol thanks to the ketone in the seventh position. Both mental and physical stress signal the body to store fat and burn muscle. By keeping cortisol down and reducing those stresses, the result is a great ability to lose weight, build muscle, and feel better overall. It will also help control cortisol during recovery and help with our body’s ability to rebound from workouts. Breakthrough CONTROL also contains Laxogenin, increasing synthesis and nitrogen retention, resulting in increased muscle strength and mass, endurance, recovery, and lean gains.
Benefits of Breakthrough CONTROL:
- Suppresses Estrogen Levels
- Lowers Cortisol Levels
- Increases Free Testosterone
- Helps Create a Lean & Dry Physique
Breakthrough CONTROL features Enteric Capsule technology, maximizing effectiveness and absorption rates, making CONTROL far superior to any other over the counter anti-estrogen product on the market today.
Take Breakthrough CONTROL solo to lower natural estrogen levels and lean out, take it alongside supplement cycles when estrogen levels are elevated, and/or take it post cycle to keep estrogen levels in check and to feel your best. It can be taken every day at half of a dose or take the full dosage for up to 8 weeks before taking a 3-4 week break before resuming use. CONTROL may be stacked with any building or cutting stack!
Breakthrough CONTROL Ingredient Profile:
Abieta-8, 11, 13-trien-18-oic acid 100mg
Abieta-8,11,13-trien-18-oic acid, better known as Dehydroabietic Acid (DHAA), is a potent aromatase inhibitor (AI) that can indirectly boost testosterone levels by keeping estrogen formation at bay.
Aromatase inhibitors bind to the aromatase enzyme in the body preventing it from binding to its associated receptor site. This inhibition prevents the body from converting testosterone into estrogen.
The end result is a bit more testosterone and less estrogen, and any extra testosterone we can get, we’ll gladly take! (Source: Price Plow)
Androsta-3, 5-diene-7, 17-dione 100mg
Androsta-3,5-diene-7,17-dione (Androsta) is a metabolite of 7-Keto-DHEA, which is a very potent suicide aromatase inhibitor. It is a natural occurring compound, produced by metabolism of the prohormone DHEA.
How Androsta Works
- It is a suicide aromatase inhibitor which binds very strongly with the aromatase enzyme. It's just as strong as aromasin, which is a very expensive drug sold by prescription only.
- Androsta will also help reduce cortisol thanks to the ketone in the seventh position; hence, the reason it is also called 7-Keto. Cortisol is a nasty hormone that the body releases when it is stressed. This stress can be from work related stress, or even the stress we put our bodies through when we workout.
Being able to keep cortisol down will result in a great ability to lose weight, build muscle, and feel better overall. As athletes, we are dependent on our bodies ability to rebound from workouts. However, many people workout daily and are unable to build muscle, and a big reason why is cortisol. This is where Androsta comes in because it will help control cortisol during recovery.
When a bodybuilder runs anabolic steroids that aromatize into estrogen (many of them), they run the risk of having estrogen related side effects. These side effects can include gynecomastia (bitch tits), insomnia, organ strain, and water weight (bloating). Androsta not only binds to the aromatase enzyme, but it's also is a suicide AI. As a result, it prevents any estrogen rebound during post cycle therapy (PCT) or bridge.
During post cycle therapy, the ability to keep cortisol and estrogen in check is a double weapon to help preserve muscle and keep water and fat away. Many bodybuilders complain during PCT that they cannot retain their gains, so it is crucial that androsta is used during this time.
Androsta is the most powerful legal natural aromatase inhibitor in existence. It is as powerful as aromasin, which is a drug. In addition, Androsta is excellent at controlling cortisol, helping you drop bodyfat and keep water retention away. Use during cycle, post cycle, or as a stand-alone to help you build more muscle and cut more fat. (Source: Evolutionary.org)
Laxogenin (5a-Hydroxy) is an anabolic building block that is derived from plants, and it can be used by the body to create its own anabolics. It does this by increasing protein synthesis and nitrogen retention, creating an anabolic environment in the body that gives the effects of increased muscle strength and mass, endurance, recovery, and lean gains. What's more, laxogenin also inhibits cortisol - a nasty hormone we get from both mental and physical stress, which signals the body to store fat and burn muscle.
Benefits of Laxogenin
The benefits of laxogenin are not as strong as anabolic steroids, but they do have some advantages:
- It will not show up on any narcotic, or anabolic, drug screens. Tested athletes need not worry about being busted for this compound.
- It has no effects on the HPTA (hypothalamus-pituitary-testicular axis) or estrogen levels, so it is not necessary to run a post cycle therapy (PCT) or use an aromatase inhibitor. Meanwhile, anabolic steroids cause LH (luteinizing hormone) suppression of about 95%, and require a strong PCT for a proper recovery.
- Results can be very fast with laxogenin, unlike some injectable steroids, which take time to give any considerable results.
- Just like anabolic androgenic steroids, laxogenin also inhibits cortisol without other side effects. Hence, it can prevent fat gain.
- This compound increases protein synthesis by over 200%, giving you the advantages of steroid use, without the harsh side effects found with steroids.
- It does not cause liver strain like oral anabolic steroids or pro-hormones do.
- Laxogenin does not cause increases in DHT, which can fry your head hair follicles. Thus, your hairline will stay intact.
It is important to find a good source for your Laxogenin, as many supplement companies underdose their products. On the other hand, if you can find a legitimate source for this amazing compound, it will really give you a boost across the board in your fitness goals.
Also take a look at Breakthrough LIMITS, as it has 100mg of Laxogenin per serving, plus is loaded with several other well-dosed and quality compounds that will elevate testosterone levels, boost strength, libido, and overall well-being.
Black pepper has long been regarded as beneficial to one’s health throughout history. Physicians even in ancient times would often recommend it to relieve stomach aches. Now with the help of modern science and clinical research, more Piperine benefits are being discovered. Here are just several of those benefits which may help you feel better. (Source: Neuro Hacker)
Of the many Bioperine benefits offered, the one most talked about is its ability to increase the level of absorption of nutrients within your body. Sometimes referred to as “bioenhancement,” this ability means you get more out of other nutrients that you consume. With many nutrients, such as turmeric and curcumin, you only absorb a fraction of what you ingest. When combined with Piperine, however, you may assimilate much more of these nutrients. This may also apply to nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, selenium, Vitamin B6, beta-carotene, and more.
One way Bioperine increases nutrient absorption is by increasing your metabolism by improving thermogenesis. This process essentially breaks down your fat cells and increases your internal temperature. That means Bioperine may be used to help people regulate their weight. While the overall effect of this ability is slight, when combined with a more comprehensive weight loss plan, it may have a noticeable impact.
Raised Dopamine and Serotonin
It’s possible that Piperine may also help improve dopamine and serotonin levels. The nutrient works with closely with these chemicals, increasing their levels. This may have the ability to help individuals have more positive feelings, in part because they’re involved with rewarding people with these feelings.
As mentioned above, Piperine may improve the neurotransmission of certain chemicals. Two such chemicals -- serotonin and beta-endorphin -- play an important role in memory. With an increased presence of these chemicals in their body, it’s possible that people could improve their memory overall, which is something many people are striving for as they grow older.
Improved Immune System
A malfunctioning immune system may sometimes overreact when the human body is attacked. Regulating this overly sensitive reactivity is necessary to keep the immune system under control. That’s where Bioperine comes in. A study in 2010 indicates that by slowing the reaction time of lymphocytes, Bioperine may reduce inflammation and weaken certain immune system responses.
Improve Mental Skills
In addition to helping your memory, Bioperine may also boost some of your other executive functions. That could mean improving your attention and reasoning skills, along with your overall motivation. In other words, Bioperine could possibly contribute to improving your overall production and sharpening your mental abilities. Those who are feeling mentally sluggish and lacking in motivation may feel a boost with an added amount of Bioperine. The nutrient may also play a factor in managing stress levels, allowing people to relax as they become more productive.
Enteric Capsule Technology: Increased Absorption
This delivery system is known as an enteric coating. This is usually only used with advanced pharmaceutical products.
The enteric coating that we use contains a pH sensitive polymer, which means that it remains intact in the acidic environment of the stomach (pH 1.5 - 3.5), protecting the contents of the tablet.
After passing through the stomach the coating then disintegrates in the small intestine (duodenum) which has an alkaline environment (pH 6.5 - 7.6).
The enteric coating is inert and simply passes through your system without any effect at all. The coating we use is manufactured by Colorcon, a world leader in the development and manufacturing of delayed and immediate release coatings for both pharmaceutical and dietary supplement products. This coating has been thoroughly proven for both safety and efficacy.
Apart from the protection that this system provides for those ingredients in our enteric coated products which could be damaged by stomach acid, it also prevents any irritation of the gastric mucosa in the stomach, which is common with many supplements and drugs.
What are the Benefits of Enteric Coated Capsules?
For some formulations, Enteric Coated Capsules are an ideal choice. This is because they:
Overwhelmingly increase absorption rates - The absorption of high quality supplements can increase from as low as 10% (depending on the individual) to 80% or more.
Will not dissolve in the mouth – Enteric Coated Capsules are perfect for drugs that are acid-activated, as they prevent the drug from activating in the mouth or esophagus.
Will not irritate the stomach – Many drugs, such as aspirin, can irritate the stomach. Because they pass through the stomach intact, Enteric Coated Capsules avoid this problem.
Can preserve enzyme activity – Most tablets break down in the highly acidic environment of the stomach. Unfortunately, depending on the product’s formulation, this acidic environment can also negatively impact the desired enzyme activity. Enteric Coated Capsules protect the enzymes so that they can be absorbed, at their highest activity levels, in the small intestine.
Take longer to dissolve – While most capsules dissolve within 15 minutes, Enteric Coated Capsules do not dissolve until approximately one to two hours after ingestion, when they reach the small intestine. These capsules can therefore provide a “timed-release” affect.
Although enteric coating is a common technology employed with expensive pharmaceutical medications, it is rarely seen in the nutritional supplement industry!
That’s because most supplements are manufactured to a price rather than from a ‘best science’ perspective. Pharmaceuticals always work because they must be based on ‘best science’ since FDA regulations require proof that they work.
The manufacturer of Xtend-Life claims over 80% absorption of ingredients when using enteric coated capsules. An extremely high level for a nutritional or dietary supplement.
Some experts believe that (in non-enteric coated products) the bioavailability of vitamins (i.e. all the contents) is only 10-15% due to damage from gastric juices and enzymes in the stomach. This is a gray area however as there is little conclusive research available dealing with absorption rates since so many individual factors come into play from person to person.
As a dietary supplement, take two (2) capsules per day in two (2) divided doses, ideally by taking one (1) capsule in the morning and one (1) capsule in the afternoon. DO NOT EXCEED 2 capsules in a 24 hour period.
