Q: I would like to know if 2TX is safe to take if you are subject to random drug tests at work and in competition within the WADA guidelines?
A: 2TX is an all natural product to support healthy testosterone production and blood levels and libido. The World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) guidelines primarily tests for synthetic anabolic steroid and stimulant drugs. There are no banned synthetic ingredients in 2Tx so you would not test positive for a random drug test for your work or athletic competition.
Q: How long should or could you take this product. (2TX) Is it something that once I stop taking it do I lose the effect. I am a 53 year old male.
A: At 53 years of age, I would suggest having your testosterone levels tested to establish a baseline. 2TX can be taken for an extended period of time (years) and should be effective without any negative side effects. I would recommend periodically checking your testosterone levels, perhaps every 6 months, to make sure the product is performing. You should coordinate these tests with your doctor who needs to order them for you and make sure to give them a copy of the 2TX Product Data Sheet. The primary bioactive ingredients Testofen™, Testafuranol™ and Maslinic Acid are all natural botanicals proven to be safe and effective in supporting healthy testosterone levels. There should be no concern about a physiological phenomenon that can be seen with synthetic hormone drugs called “negative feedback inhibition”. Simply put, negative feedback inhibition means that when the body is given a steroid hormone like testosterone (orally, patch, injection) at high doses or at doses above normal, it can shut down the body’s natural production of testosterone through complex feedback mechanisms. The body is very smart in how it regulates hormones. If you are currently taking 2TX there is no need to stop. If you were to stop taking 2TX you might see and natural benefits diminish and only you would be able to evaluate this along with your testosterone levels.
Q: Are all of the Max health products sweetened with sucrolose? Are there any with natural sweeteners?
A: Not all Max Muscle products are sweetened with sucralose. Here is an example of some that are sweetened with natural sugars or do not have sweeteners added:
Maxpro Natural Vanilla
Max Glutamine and GlutaMatrix
Q: Will the femme lean and balance cap affect birth control?
A: The best answer I can give you is that it may affect your birth control pills. Not knowing exactly what pill you are taking also makes it hard to answer. The literature shows that herbs including Chasteberry, St. John’s Wort, Red Clover, Black Cohosh, Dong Quai and Soy Isoflavones can interfere with birth control pills. Since Femme Lean & Balance contains Soy Isoflavones I would recommend discussing this question with your doctor or pharmacist. We do have many other options in the weight loss supplement category, both non-stimulating and stimulating, and I would suggest discussing these options with the Max Muscle store staff.
Q: I had a severe allergic reaction this past Saturday to the lemon lime anabolic recovery matrix . I am allergic to fish but not shellfish. Do you use any kind of omega 3 product in this powder? Fish base or fish oil? Also is regular fish, not shellfish also processed in your facility? These questions are important. I almost died. Thank you, Gina
A: There are no fish or fish oil based ingredients in ARM. ARM is processed in a facility that does not process fish or fish oils. I hope this information helps you.
Latest Science News – Findings from New Protein Study
Findings from a recent double-blind, randomized clinical trial presented at the 2012 Experimental Biology meeting show that a blend of protein sources including whey, casein and soy is superior to whey alone for prolonging the muscle building anabolic response and recovery after exercise. This new protein study supports Max Muscle’s long-time product development approach of using multi-source proteins in our products. Whey, casein and soy all absorb at different rates and by using a protein blend results in increasing protein synthesis for a longer amount of time and supports the 24 to 48 hours muscles need to fully recover. Another important finding from this study is that soy, with an intermediate assimilation rate, is also beneficial for maintaining muscle mass as we age in athletes, active adults and non-athletes.
