Testosterone n.

Asteroid hormone and the most potent naturally occuring androgen that is formed by the interstitials cells of the testes, and by the overy and adrenal cortex, may be produced in no glandular tissues from precursors such as androstenedoine, and is used in the treatment of hypogonadism, cryptochism, carcinomas, and menorhagia.

Testosterone accelerates muscle build up, increases the formation of red blood cells, speeds up regeneration, and speeds up recovery time after injuries or illness. It also stimulates the entire metabolism which result in the burning of body fat.

How to raise testosterone levels the Natural way

  • Start weight training. Since testosterone declines at a steady rate, it is believed that raising your hormone levels naturally in your 20s and 30s can help to maintain higher levels later on.
  • Lift heavy. Studies have found that lifting weights that allow you to do about five reps. (70 to 80 percent of one rep max) produces the greatest increase in testosterone levels.
  • Choose multi joint exercises that work you large muscle groups such as squats, dead lifts, bence press, lunges, chin ups, and rows. Studies have shown that these exercises can increase testosterone more then single joint, small muscle movements.
  • Do at least three sets of each exercise. You will get more testosterone production from doing three sets.
  • Lose the belly fat. Carrying excess body weight contributes to a decline in testosterone production and can increase in Estogen production.
  • Dont drastically lose weight, do it slowly. If you exercise intensively and cut caloric intake by more than 15% the body thinks you’re starving and stops testosterone production. Ironically, this dive in circulating testosterone stops you from burning body fat efficiently, so your actually thwarting you hard efforts to melt that tire off your gut.
  • Make sure 30 percent of your diet comes from fat. Your body needs dietary fat to produce testosterone.
  • Lower your stress levels. Being overly stressed stimulates the release of ‘cortisol’, a highly catabolic hormone that will cause your testosterone to plummet.
  • Get a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night. This is the time your body does the bulk of its healing, reparing and producing.

Foods that help the production of Testosterone

Beef, chicken, fish, raw oysters, eggs, celery, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, turnips, cabbage, brussels sprouts, tomatoes, red peppers, spinach, pumpkin seeds, bananas, avacado, almonds, blueberries, apples, pineapples, olive oil, peanut oil..

Physicists Create Universe Smaller Than a Marble

At Lancaster University, they’re unraveling the secrets of how to build a universe. In fact, they have already formed one, or something very much like it. This scientific breakthrough lies in the bottom of a chamber no larger than your pinky finger, filled with helium and cooled to 0.0003 degrees Fahrenheit above absolute zero.

 

By placing helium in a state which most closely resembles the form it held at the beginning of the universe, scientists have created an opportunity for the gas to go through several low-energy evolutions. These defects in space-time, are represented by tiny whirlpools in the helium, which are created by the rapid expansion, and equally rapid slowing of the expansion; something that it’s believed our own universe did at the big bang and in the moments thereafter.

 

 

How, then, did our universe go from whirlpools that could fit in a thimble to galaxies larger than our imaginations can properly comprehend? Physicists, ever ready with their dry wit, have deemed these phenomena “inflation.” Nobody knows how this works or why, this happened; vast amounts of energy aren’t something you’d like to replicate in a lab. Black holes and supernovas aren’t pleasant lab partners. It’s quite evident to the researchers however, that inflation, or something very much like it took place and, lacking the ability to do field research of lab trials, they have built scale models. This is where the tiny galaxies come in.

The theory being presented by the physicists in Lancaster University is that inflation is the product of violent competition: a series of collisions between universes known as “3-branes;” a term related to string theory which I’m frankly not smart enough to explain to you. Suffice to say that our universe is one, because it exists in 3-5 dimensions.

What the string theorists claim is that in a collision of two 3-branes, or two different modes of pure helium like that containing the mini-galaxy, the universe will rapidly expand and stop instantly, mimicking the halting advance of the universe’s growth. Remarkably, when super cooled helium in different phases is mixed, it does exactly that: symmetries in the solution disappear, and aberrations form; the first step in several that lead to the forming of galaxies out of nothing. The secrets of the universe it seems, aren’t safe for long.
