In both men and women, testosterone levels peak between 25 to 30 years of age and thereafter drop approximately 1-2% annually. At the age of 60, testosterone levels are typically only 40-50% of youthful levels and may be lower due to stress and related lifestyle issues such as diet, exercise, and sleep patterns. This lowering in testosterone has been linked to a poorer health outcome in many areas of life.¹

“Hi ATP, my names Scottie, I’m a Crohn’s & Colitis sufferer and Im still on daily meds plus regular IV treatments for the disease. Because of these I have very limited diet and havent even been able to take protein shakes until the last week. I’ve tried many supplements all of which felt like they were tearing my insides apart….I was told about ATP Science from a friend, I first tried the Amp-V whichw as great, mixed it with an espresso twice a day. Then I bought Alpha Mars and T432 Plus. Both of these products have given me great results without effecting my Crohn’s at all. I feel like I have the energy to get a good session done daily and it’s really motivated me to keep pushing after a horrible, nearly life ending 2 year sickness period. I can’t wait to try other products like Alpha Prime. Hopefully as my diet begins to change I will see even more drastic results. I just wanted to let you know your products are great and although they weren’t designed with it in mind it’s really helping me out. I’m 3 weeks back into gym, up to 14.8 stone from 10.4 when I crashed, again thank you ATP!” – Scottie Wheldon
