The main ingredient in Invictus is beta androstenetriol (Androstene-3 beta-7 beta-17 beta-triol) — a powerful cortisol modulator and immune boosting agent — in our revolutionary and patent-pending transdermal delivery system, designed to boost bio-availability to levels that would simply not be possible via oral administration. In other words it delivers more of the active ingredient b-AET into your bloodstream. Invictus represents the next step in commercial physique enhancing formulas, and the results it generates will need to be seen to be believed.
Androstene-3 beta-7 beta-17 beta-triol (b-AET) represents a key naturally occurring 7-hydroxy dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) metabolite. Produced from the adrenal gland, DHEA and its sulfate are the major circulating adrenal steroids in humans. Studies on Androstenetriol show its ability to strongly counteract cortisol and boost lymphocyte activity.
Cortisol is one of the body’s most abundant and important endogenous steroids. Listing in detail the expansive list of cortisol’s many functions in our body is a nearly impossible task, to summarize we can say that cortisol’s role in the human body is to break down bodily tissue and nutrients for the purpose of energy provision (to be catabolic), to act as an immunosuppressive, and to regulate blood sugar. In a nutshell, cortisol is responsible for inhibiting many of the processes that we as fitness enthusiasts want to start, and for starting many of the processes that we want to inhibit.
