Test Base 101
Everything you need to know about using a test base for your research!
A Test Base: What’s That?
Like you could easily guess, a test base is a testosterone base.
It means making sure that your body still has the proper amount of testosterone to feel well en energetic.
Some compounds may deplete your body’s testosterone levels.
In most cases, that causes some annoying side effects you don’t want during your research.
Why Is Testosterone So Important Again?
Testosterone is a hormone found in humans, as well as in other animals. In men, the testicles primarily make testosterone.
Women’s ovaries also make testosterone, though in much smaller amounts.
Testosterone is the primary sex hormone and an anabolic steroid in males.
This hormone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testes and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair.
In men, it’s the most important hormone to regulate sex drive (libido), bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass and strength, and the production of red blood cells and sperm.
In addition, testosterone is involved in health and well-being, and the prevention of osteoporosis. A man’s testosterone levels can also affect his mood.
So if your goal is to be a healthy and fit man, you need your testosterone!
Signs Of Low Testosterone
- decreased sex drive
- erectile dysfunction
- lower semen volume (smaller loads)
- less energy
- weight gain (increased body fat)
- muscle loss
- feelings of depression
- low self-esteem
- less body hair
- smaller testicle size
- low blood counts
It’s important to always be aware of these signs.
But especially when you are researching, if you get any of these signs you must be very attentively.
If you are a healthy guy with normal testosterone levels and you experience this during your research, you can be pretty sure your test levels are dropping.
But no need to worry yet. There are some easy ways to make sure this problem goes away.
You will just need to use a test base.
Test Base 101
When Do You Need A Test Base?
As we mentioned above you must be very attentive to these signs of low testosterone.
If you never experience any of the signs when you’re not researching, this means you have healthy testosterone levels.
When these signs happen during research, it means your own testosterone levels are dropping.
More specifically, you should always have a test base on hand when you start researching with compounds that tend to be suppressive.
You can find a lot of charts with the suppression levels of all kinds of research chemicals (and with another kind of potential problem).
When this chart mentions a compound to likely suppressive you should take your precautions.
When stacking multiple SARMS, you should always take these precautions since the suppressive effect will be much higher.
Which Possibilities Do You Have?
There are a lot of ways to make sure you have that test base while on a research cycle.
Going from testosterone injections, HCG injections, some prohormones or hormones… there are a lot of possibilities.
To keep it clear and simple we will talk about the kinds of test base Rats Army can help with.
4-Andro is a prohormone and is the best alternative for testosterone injections.
It’s the only prohormone that converts to testosterone itself. So it’s the closest thing to real testosterone.
4-Andro has a small conversion rate to estrogen (which is good as a test base) and is not liver toxic.
As a test base, you can use it in small doses that you should spread throughout the day because of its unclear half-life.
In this way, you can make sure you won’t have any negative low testosterone side effects during your cycle
You will still need a PCT after your cycle with this test base since it does not increase your own testosterone production.
It just replaces it in a very effective way.
SARM + SERM (Tamoxifen or Clomiphene)
This can as well be of use for other research than research with research chemicals.
It’s a more advanced way of using a test base so not recommended for beginners.
As you may or may not know, SERMs (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators) are used after AAS cycles and strong research chemical cycles with the goal of kickstarting natural testosterone production and boosting the speed at which it recovers back to baseline.
The logic behind this is that by taking it during the cycle, you can keep your testosterone levels elevated so that problems like low libido, erectile dysfunction, and lethargy can be avoided.
Furthermore, taking a SERM during a cycle would render a PCT useless, since your natural testosterone levels would already be elevated by the end of the cycle.
Depending on the kind of compound(s) you do your research with, you should start at the beginning with suppressive compounds and halfway your research with milder compounds.
As said before, the good thing about this kind of test base is that you won’t need a PCT after your cycle.
You need a test base to optimize your own test levels during research.
Low test levels can be very counterproductive for the results of your research.
At Rats Army we can help you with two kinds of test bases for your research: you can use 4-Andro or go for the SARM+SERM protocol and choose for Tamoxifen or Clomiphene.
Both are possible, but we do recommend 4-Andro for beginners.
