We’ve found that there is very little information on 5a-Hydroxy Laxogenin so here is a brief breakdown on what the ingredient is and how I suggest taking it.
5a-Hydroxy Laxogenin is the main ingredient found in Olympus Labs Str3ngth. It is shown to have an anabolic/androgenic ratio similar to Anavar, but without the side effects of liver stress or any hormonal shut down. Athletes claim to have seen strength increases in 3-5 days, and muscle mass increases in 3-4 weeks. A.1
In recent studies Laxogenin has increased protein synthesis by over 200%, which is a crucial component to lean muscle mass and improved recovery. In studies, Laxogenin has also been shown to balance cortisol on calorie restricted diets, helps control glucose and increases thyroid function. In addition to all of that, Laxogenin greatly improved recovery and reduction of muscle wasting. A.1
The Breakdown – Our suggested dosing.
I usually dose my Laxogenin 3 times daily. I take one capsule with my morning meal, I take my next capsule mid-afternoon with a protein bar and shake, and then my final dose is during the evening time. I take two capsules pre-workout, I feel taking 50mg of Laxogenin pre-workout greatly helps with my strength and fullness during my workouts. The total amount of Laxogenin that I take daily is 100mg equaling to 4 capsules.
Laxogenin is by far one of my favorite supplements to add to my arsenal. I’ve used it as a standalone and I’ve also used it with my PCT supplements. Another plus about this ingredient is that after my pro-hormone cycle, I’ve kept the majority of my strength from my pro-hormone cycle and that recovery improved quite a bit. I didn’t notice much of an increase in muscle mass, although you may gain 2 – 4lbs while using Laxogenin, at the most using one bottle. I can also say that my elbows and shoulders, during my pro-hormone cycle, were a little tender but after using the Olympus Labs Str3ngth, my joints felt rejuvenated! As with any supplement, it comes down to a diet and training method that best fit you.
My overall rating of Olympus Labs Str3ngth:
5, being the highest, 0 had no effect at all.
Strength – 5/5
Recovery – 4/5
Lean Muscle Mass – 3/5
Joint Recovery – 4/5
