My Story

Mark Iron

I’ve faced my own battles with anxiety, panic attacks, self-doubt and drinking too much booze.

I learned that in the midst of chaos, there’s always a way to win. 

But without energy and V8 hormones, it’s ahard as hell!

So, let’s square away on this – is low testosterone really okay?

If you’re seeing a slide in the bedroom, the gym, or the boardroom, should you just accept it?

Hell no. Not on my watch.

At 51, I’m feeling better than ever. If you haven’t let your health completely fall to pieces, you can pull your testosterone back up too.

Don’t delay, gents. Optimal testosterone isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a need-to-have.

Some docs out there, they get it. They know the score about low testosterone.

Take my friend, Dr. Amy B Killen. Had a sit-down with her not too long ago.

Amy gave it to me straight: “Low testosterone isn’t some minor inconvenience. It’s a BIG deal.”

She didn’t pull any punches: “Guys with lower testosterone levels? Higher mortality rates. Full stop. That means more heart attacks, more strokes.”

And she didn’t stop there: “Low T? You’re looking at higher chances of diabetes, obesity, mood disorders, depression, insomnia, anxiety. Oh, and let’s not forget sexual dysfunction.”

So, why the hell are some doctors brushing this off?

It’s not that they don’t give a damn. They do. It’s the damn government guidelines that are the real problem here.

Another doc who’s in the fight to boost men’s T is my friend Dr. Ken Berry.

Berry hit me with this: “There’s a group out there who thinks the government gets everything we just talked about testosterone. And they’re cool with men running on low T.”

His next words just about floored me: “When your T’s low, you’re more likely to just take whatever’s thrown at you.”

Berry kept going: “Imagine trying to control a population of men with optimized testosterone levels. Try forcing them to do something they didn’t want to, or something just plain wrong. That’s not going to fly if you’re the government.”

Are you cool with that? Because I’m sure as hell not.

We believe every man has a hidden beast inside, and by applying our unique PhD blueprint specific to you, we’ll get you on the fast track to crushing those goals like a boss.

We know that living your healthiest, and most badass life will put you at the top of your game. And there’s no better feeling than that.

But the problem most men face is that they have NO CLUE—none!—that system has designed lifestyle that lowers their testosterone.

The system is rigged against you, intentionally sabotaging your testosterone levels.

Let me be blunt: This system is waging a full-blown hormonal war on us, and it’s time we fought back.

Why? Because optimised testosterone (500 to 1500 ng/dl) men pose a threat to those in power.

We’re fiercely independent, unyielding, and unwilling to simply accept the status quo.

We protect our loved ones and will stop at nothing to secure their future. No wonder they’re trying to bring us down.

But listen up: You’re not broken, you’re not weak, and you’re not alone. Your V8 hormones have been sabotaged—but you can reclaim them.

Realize this: you don’t rise to the day; you perform based on your V8-hormonal status.

Picture yourself as a high-powered CEO.

You’ve got the car, the status, the life you’ve always wanted.

But suddenly, you feel like you’re losing your edge.

What’s the key to getting it back?

It’s clear as day: mental and physical strength fueled by optimal energy and testosterone levels.

Sure, V8 hormones aren’t the sole key to success, but they can make the journey a lot more badass and exciting.

I present the evidence supporting the importance of testosterone for physical and mental strength:

  1. Muscle growth and strength: Testosterone fuels the production of muscle proteins, which form the building blocks of muscle tissue. This process, known as protein synthesis, leads to increased muscle size and strength (1).
  2. Bone density: Testosterone fortifies bone mineral density by stimulating bone formation and inhibiting bone resorption (2).
  3. Fat metabolism: Testosterone deftly orchestrates the regulation of adipose tissue, influencing the distribution of body fat and promoting the breakdown of fat for energy (3).
  4. Energy levels: Testosterone drives various metabolic processes that provide energy for physical and mental activities. Adequate levels of testosterone are the key to maintaining optimal energy levels (4).
  5. Libido and sexual function: Testosterone is the master regulator of sexual desire and function, ensuring healthy libido levels and peak erectile function in men (5).
  6. Mood regulation: Testosterone has a profound impact on mood by influencing neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine (6).
  7. Cognitive function: Testosterone elevates cognitive performance in various domains, including memory, attention, and spatial abilities (7).

In a nutshell, testosterone is undeniably critical for physical and mental strength due to its significant role in muscle growth, bone density, fat metabolism, energy production, sexual function, mood regulation, and cognitive performance.

Low levels of testosterone can spawn a host of health issues, emphasizing the importance of maintaining optimal levels for overall well-being.

So why do Dr’s brush this of as no big deal? Because it’s kind of a BIG deal.
