In a market saturated with multivitamin/mineral products, you may be thinking, “Why would Axis Labs invest in offering their own Multivitamin/Mineral product?” That is a valid question, to be sure – and one that deserves a “no nonsense” answer.
You see, at Axis Labs, we are obsessed with supporting the needs of active, health-conscience fitness enthusiasts and athletes. We continually, and exhaustively scan the market for obvious “nutritional and performance gaps” – areas that other companies have missed, or quite frankly, are not effectively addressing. That led us to take a serious look at the vitamin/mineral category.
Now, prior to ENDO SHIELD, Axis Labs didn’t offer a multivitamin product. We thought that leaving the “basics” for other companies to address was a good idea. We were wrong. After reviewing the long list of currently available products, we were far less than impressed. In fact, we felt that we were doing a great disservice to our dedicated patrons by not offering an alternative to “typical” multi-vitamin/mineral products.
ENDO SHIELD is a precision-engineered formula that addresses what active men want most – peak health and optimal testosterone support. This is a dynamic 2-in-1 solution that resolves the inconvenience of downing fist-full quantities of pills from multiple products.
First, ENDO SHIELD works as a complete, fully functional multivitamin/mineral supplement that delivers key nutrients in efficacious doses. Second, the groundbreaking EndoDrive Support blend offers a synergistic blend of compounds that naturally support testosterone.
ENDO SHIELD is a comprehensive, complete stand-alone multivitamin/mineral supplement designed to support the nutritional goals of male fitness enthusiasts. In fact, you can toss out your current multivitamin product and upgrade to ENDO SHIELD. Out with the old and in with the new (new and more effective, that is).
ENDO SHIELD offers a full array of vitamins and minerals in efficacious doses that help to offset nutritional deficiencies and support optimal health. Each 3-tablet serving provides peak levels of Vitamins A, C & E, a strong B-complex and a complete spectrum of key minerals and electrolytes.
Although the ENDO SHIELD formula is powerful as a foundational multivitamin/mineral supplement, it “up’s the ante” by delivering what the category competition has failed to address…testosterone support! Thus the incorporation of the unique EndoDrive Support blend in ENDO SHIELD.
The groundbreaking Endo Drive Support delivers a precise dose of Vitamin D3 and its co-factors for efficient absorption into the body and optimal testosterone-engaging, biological activity. So, why is that such a big deal? Read on.
Testosterone is hailed the “king of anabolic hormones.” Without adequate levels of it, men are at greater risk of experiencing decreased lean mass, reduced bone mineral density, depression and lack of energy. When testosterone is at optimal levels, men experience greater strength, vitality, libido, mood and overall health.
To be sure, those interested in increasing their testosterone have many pro hormone and testosterone-boosting products on the market to choose from. For instance, Axis Labs offers MYODROL and HyperTest, two highly effective testosterone boosters.
ENDO SHIELD is the perfect, nutritional compliment to a testosterone-supporting training and supplement regimen. It functions as a dietary “assurance policy” for optimal intake of nutrients that contribute towards overall health plus natural testosterone production.
Vitamin D is a cholesterol-based compound that is naturally produced in the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight (or artificial sunlight). Once in circulation, Vitamin D functions as a type of hormone that binds to specific cellular receptors. Once bound to its intracellular receptor, Vitamin D helps to “turn on” the process of DNA transcription.
Other key functions of Vitamin D include its role in managing calcium and phosphorous levels in bone tissue, teeth and the blood. The calcium “managing” effect of Vitamin D also supports muscle function and helps to regulate body fat storage.
Additionally, and maybe more interesting to you, emerging research suggests that Vitamin D is linked to testosterone production. More specifically, there seems to be a direct correlation between low levels of serum Vitamin D and decreased testosterone production.
Furthermore, Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to the alarming trend of widespread obesity, a contributing factor to decreased muscle strength, inflammation and insulin resistance. Now, before you say, “I eat a balanced diet, I’m not Vitamin D deficient”, you should know that despite Vitamin D fortification of foods and milk, Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a significant health concern in the United States.
All Vitamin D compounds and supplements are not created equal. In fact, the specific form of dietary Vitamin D is crucial to its ultimate “usability” in the body. Therefore, ENDO SHIELD uses only Vitamin D3. Why? One of the two primary forms of endogenous (made by your body) Vitamin D is D3, also known as cholecalciferol. Simply put, dietary Vitamin D3 may be a superior “body-ready” form for maximum biological activity.
Consuming Vitamin D3 alone, however, is not enough. You see Vitamin D requires several “co-factors” for its efficient utilization in the body. These co-factors include magnesium, zinc, Vitamin K2 and boron - the exact nutrients, along with Vitamin D3, that are the key compounds in the EndoDrive Support blend.
Supporting natural testosterone production alone may not be enough to achieve adequate results. Here’s why. In the body, testosterone must run a constant “gauntlet” through an onslaught of aromatase enzymes. Aromatase enzymes work to convert testosterone into estrogens.
That’s definitely not a good thing for men. Elevated levels of estrogens promote “feminine” attributes including gynecomastia (fatty deposits around the pecs) and excess accumulation of abdominal fat.
Quercetin is a powerful flavonoid (a compound that gives plants their bright coloration) that may provide several key benefits in the body. It functions as an antioxidant to combat the cell-ravaging effects of free radicals, works as an anti-inflammatory agent and may support a healthy prostate.
However, one of the more direct benefits of quercetin, relative to testosterone support, is its purported effect on inhibiting aromatase enzymes. Simply put – inhibition of aromatase may result in more testosterone production and less estrogen production.
ENDO SHIELD represents the very latest in emerging research on men’s health and natural testosterone support. ENDO SHIELD is a comprehensive all-in-one multivitamin/mineral blend designed expressly for the needs of active men who demand only the best for their bodies.
