Why women don't lose weight
You wake up everyday and start your morning routine day in and day out. You eat clean portioned meals and workout 3-5 times per week to include cardio. You weigh yourself at the end of the week and one of two things happened: 1) You lost no weight at all or 2) You gained 1-2 pounds. Its frustrating and you feel like quitting the gym and eating healthy all together. Have you been in this position before? Many women have.
So what really separates the results men have compared to women with losing weight? For men, they carry an important hormone called testosterone. Testosterone allows men to lose body fat and gain muscle faster than women. So the question is, how can women achieve faster results like men?
Controlling your estrogen levels could be your answer! Now, before reading any further we recommend you consult your doctor and have blood work done to understand how high or low your estrogen levels are as this could potentially be the key in helping you achieve that summer body all year long!
When a women has high estrogen levels it can cause a multitude of weight gain factors. High estrogen levels can cause symptoms such as irregular or heavy periods, fatigue and weight gain. In other cases, high estrogen can also increase high cortisol levels. What's cortisol? Cortisol is a steroid hormone that is produced by your two adrenal glands, which are located on top of each kidney. How is cortisol released into your bloodstream? Stress!
When you are stressed, cortisol is released into your bloodstream which causes fat accumulation around the stomach area. Unfortunately, any stress causes this. So, the question is, which supplement can control your estrogen and cortisol levels?
Ashwagandha, also known as KSM-66, is a great cortisol controller for both men and women. Users consuming one serving of KSM-66 daily (approximately 600mg of Ashwagandha) achieve very significant reductions in stress, anxiety, depression and most importantly, cortisol levels!
Laxogenin is another great supplement to reduce estrogen and cortisol levels that's safe for women. Laxogenin is a natural plant steroid that does not mess with your body's natural hormones. Laxogenin suppresses a women's estrogen levels opening up a window to decrease body fat at an accelerated rate! This is a huge plus for women! The daily recommended dose for women consuming Laxogenin is approximately 100mg-200mg daily.
Now, for the strongest and most powerful estrogen blocker, suppressor and controller: Arimistane! This truly is the reigning king of estrogen control! Several competitive female athletes use arimistane to greatly suppress and control their estrogen levels in order to gain new muscle tissue which allows for a tighter and leaner body! We recommend starting off with 25mg once per day and asses your tolerance not to exceed 100mg daily.
If you want all three of these ingredients in one bottle then we recommend Revive. Revive can be found in our testosterone section. Although Revive is geared towards men, the ingredients found in Revive are absolutely female friendly.

We recommend everyone always speak with a healthcare provider before starting a new dietary regimen, which includes vitamins and supplements. A patient's primary care physician is familiar with the person's medical history and can suggest supplements to take or to stay away from.
