Novedex XT 2017 Ingredients
Gaspari’ Novedex XT has made its return, but has been completely overhauled. We’ve got 3 completely different ingredients from the original version, including 2 industry-first ingredients! On top of that, Novedex now incorporates liposomal delivery technology for superior bioavailability.
Proprietary Anabolic & PCT Blend (75mg)
Leading off the new Novedex XT is a brand new compound developed by Gaspari Nutrition! 3b-hydroxy-androsta-1,4,6-triene-17-one is often dubbed the ATD imposter due to its structure and mechanism of action.
This compound is a suicidal, steroidal) aromatase inhibitor (AI) that permanently binds to the aromatase enzyme, thereby creating an irreversible reaction — effectively lowering estrogen production and increasing testosterone levels.[1,2]
Because it’s permanent / suicidal / irreversible, that receptor stays bound for its lifetime. You grow more receptors over time, but the effect is far longer-lasting. You can read more about this type of action in the Aromatase Inhibitor section of our Post Cycle Therapy article
Plus, 3b-hydroxy-androsta-1,4,6-triene-17-one has an extended half-life in the body, which means you only need to take Novedex XT once per day as opposed to multiple times per day like other AI’s on the market.
Up next is another variation ormetabolite of our first ingredient. Aside from aromatase inhibition, the 4,6-testosterone metabolite of this powerful AI also binds to the androgen receptor (AR) and induces androgenic effects similar to was discussed above, as the work via similar pathways.
This should come as no surprise, when you learn that 4,6-testosterone has a significant binding affinity for the AR, which means it can interfere with the anabolic or androgenic action of hormones which bind the AR.
This is a relatively new compound in the AI world, and as such, a ton of research isn’t readily available at the moment. More digging will need to be done on it!
Better known as Arimistane, Androsta 3,5-dien-7,17-dione is our third and final ingredient in Novedex XT and synergizes with the first two. Gaspari has developed a unique form of this powerful AI that allows a 99% pure compound while many other forms contain only 90-96% purity!
Of the three ingredients in Novedex XT, this is the most well known of the lot. Like the others, Androsta 3,5-dien-7,17-dione is an extremely potent AI that prevents the aromatase enzyme from converting your precious testosterone into estrogen.[3,4]
Another benefit from Arimistane is reduced cortisol levels which is important, as chronically elevated cortisol levels can be counterproductive for muscle building and sufficient testosterone levels.
If you really want to “geek out” with aromatase inhibitors, take a look at our extensive Post Cycle Therapyguide (same one as mentioned above), where this and many other things are discussed.
Novedex XT dosing is rather simple — consume 1 tablet 2 times per day. One in the morning, and the other at night.
