Product Category: Natural Testosterone Boosters
What is Sustain Alpha?
Sustain Alpha features ingredients validated in clinical research to boost testosterone levels naturally & safely. Not only that, Sustain Alpha also helps control estrogen production and reduce stress/cortisol levels. Thus, Sustain Alpha supports male vitality, libido, erectile function, muscular development and fat loss.
Sustain Alpha does not contain any pro-hormones or steroidal ingredients. Instead, we packed Sustain Alpha with botanical extracts, and "aromatic-stimulators" to surge natural testosterone production. This makes Sustain Alpha a safe, healthy and legal male enhancement formula for virtually anybody.
The formula dries within minutes, leaving the skin clean and moisturized. At five pumps, Sustain Alpha will last 23 applications; at six pumps, it will last 19 applications.
How Does Sustain Alpha Work?
The active ingredients – trans-resveratrol and 7,8-benzoflavone - in Sustain Alpha work in concert to modulate hormones in the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA). As you can see from the diagram below, the HPTA has an innate negative feedback loop that suppresses secretion of hormones such as GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), which in turn prevents testosterone from increasing.
Research on resveratrol has shown it acts as an estrogen blocker by binding to estrogen receptors and impeding activity of estrogenic hormones. In turn, this increases LH and FSH levels which go on to stimulate production of testosterone. It has also been demonstrated that resveratrol increases sperm output, enhances erectile function, and is a potent antioxidant. 
Furthermore, 7,8-benzoflavone has been shown to activate a specific enzyme called Cytochrome P450-3A4. This is particularly important as this enzyme catalyzes reactions that metabolize testosterone; in other words, it helps the body utilize testosterone. 7,8-benzoflavone also readily passes through the blood-brain barrier to reverse suppression of GnRH, thereby increasing testosterone levels. It is also a strong inhibitor of the aromatase enzyme, and is thus great for controlling estrogen production.
Moreover, research suggests that 7,8-benzoflavone has anxiety reducing and aphrodisiac properties, thereby enhancing libido. 
Importance of Proper Testosterone and Estrogen Balance
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and most potent natural/endogenously-produced anabolic steroid. Increased testosterone levels have been shown to dramatically enhance fertility, libido, and erectile function in males. 
Moreover, there is a significant body of evidence that shows testosterone plays a pivotal role in the growth and maintenance of skeletal muscle tissue. In studies administering hypogonadal (low testosterone) men a replacement dose of testosterone, fat-free mass, skeletal muscle strength, and muscle protein synthesis all increase rather dramatically.   This effect has also been replicated in trained athletes and normal, healthy men upon administration of testosterone.
Testosterone also appears to exert part of its anabolic effects by decreasing amino acid oxidation (specifically leucine) and increasing their uptake into whole-body and skeletal muscle proteins.
Estrogen, on the other hand, is the principal female sex hormone and responsible for growth and maturation of female reproductive tissues (but it is still present in males due to aromatization of testosterone). Estrogen can be indirectly catabolic by blockading androgen receptors and down-regulating the production of GnRH in the hypothalamus, ultimately lowering the production of testosterone in the body.
This isn’t to say all estrogen is bad though, since estrogen has a medley of important effects in the human body and even a few anabolic/anti-catabolic effects on protein metabolism.
Benefits of Sustain Alpha Supplementation
Every ingredient in Sustain Alpha was chosen with a purpose in mind and dosed at a clinically-effective amount. We want Sustain Alpha users to maximize the potential of their body’s natural testosterone production while mitigating the negative ramifications of excessive estrogen levels.
Sustain Alpha contains research-backed ingredients shown to help you feel more energetic, more vitalized, and more youthful! By increasing natural testosterone levels and controlling estrogen production, you will have increased strength in the gym, better recovery time between workouts, and an easier time building muscle and burning fat. Better yet, your sex drive (libido) and erectile quality will be significantly enhanced.
Not to mention Sustain Alpha doesn’t contain prohormones or steroids, so you never have to “cycle off” like you would with compounds that shut-down your body’s natural hormone production.
