What is Blue UP ™ ?

Key Attributes:

* Highest Potency
* 6.5mg yohimbine
* Patented LongJack
* Increase free testosterone levels
* Highest grade of Tribulus, Avena Sativa and LongJack available
* Test boosting with a buzz

Blue UP is the most potent natural testosterone booster available. Most testosterone boosters claim to raise your "testosterone"; testosterone is a broad term. Raising total testosterone is not very helpful by itself, because the body needs testosterone in a "free" or "unbound" state to use it effectively for lean muscle mass and strength gains.

The problem is that most men have plenty of total testosterone, but their free state testosterone is on the low side. SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) keeps your body's testosterone locked up for potential use at a later time, but most men do not release enough of this bound testosterone naturally to make great gains. That is why we designed Blue UP to help your body produce more total testosterone while simultaneously helping to unbind your existing testosterone by limiting SHBG in your system.

The manner in which this formula operates hampers many of the side effects that were common with synthetic and older natural based testosterone enhancer use. So if you are looking to increase your free testosterone level and your strength in the gym, Blue UP is the way to go. This formula's potent extracts act in unison to help ignite your body's own mechanism for turning bound (useless) testosterone into free (useful) testosterone that is needed for muscle growth and pure brut power. This extra power translates into greater lifts and muscle growth.

Tribulus Terrestris in our formula is standardized for 80% steroidal saponins as well as 30% protodioscin. It has been shown to increase luteinizing hormone (LH) in the body. When LH is increased it signals the sites in the body to increase their production of the testosterone. This new testosterone contributes to your body's total testosterone, which can now be acted upon by the two other main ingredients, Avena Sativa and LongJack, to unbind this locked or potential that can lead to size and strength gains.

Avena Sativa in our formula is standardized for 15% steroidal avenacosides A & B, the highest grade available on the market today. It helps to break bound testosterone from SHBG releasing it into circulation for use in the body.

Eurycoma Longifolia (LongJack) in our formula is standardized for 40% Glyco Saponins and 30% Polysacharides. Our potent extract has been shown to help increase IGF1 levels and modulate Cortisol levels. Most importantly, this extract will help increase total testosterone and inhibit SHBG, so that more free testosterone remains in the blood without increasing aromatization into estrogen. Studies on this particular extract have shown that the average male serum testosterone level rose by 100% after just 2 weeks of use.

Yohimbe in our formula is standardized for 6.5mg of yohimbine, the active ingredient in yohimbe. Yohimbine works in various ways including as a vasodilator, which widens the blood vessels and allows more nutrients and testosterone to reach their intended targets faster and more efficiently. Yohimbine also increases sex drive and helps energize by way of a stimulatory effect.

Natural Caffeine in our formula comes from all natural herbal sources and is an excellent stimulant that will get you pumped up for your workout. It works by way of stimulating the central nervous system and has an energizing effect that will help you push the weights a bit harder, which will lead to greater mass gains.

Where can I purchase Blue UP™ and how much does it cost ?


Internet retailers will have the best prices (around $20 - $30):
http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/clabs/clabs.htm

How many servings per bottle ?


30

How many servings per day ?


1

Should I take it every day (workout days and off days ?)


For best results, yes.

So... how many days will each bottle last ?


30

Does Blue UP ™ replace proper nutrition, training, and cardio ?


No

Does Blue UP™ replace creatine products like Green BULGE ?


No, it should be used along with your creatine product like Green BULGE

I'm on a carb-cycling / low-carb diet... is Blue UP™ good for me ?


Yes, real world feedback suggests that this is one of the ideal times to use Blue UP. It will help keep energy levels up, and hormone levels optimal.

What other "basic" supplements do you recommend while taking Blue UP™ ?


Creatine (Green BULGE)
Whey Protein (throughout the day)
Fishoil / EFA
Plenty of water
Multivitamin

Besides the "basic" supplements listed above, what other supplements do you recommend to maximize my results while on Blue UP™ ?


Purple WRAATH™ (pre / during training)
SesaGLOW™ (with meals)


Why is hydration so important for best results with Blue UP™ ?


Blue UP (original) contains caffeine which is a natural diuretic. Dehydration can lead to possible side effects like dizziness, so it's very important to stay hydrated.

I'm on medication or may have a health condition, should I take Blue UP™ ?


Ask your doctor before taking Blue UP™ ?

Is it necessary to cycle Blue UP™ ?


We generally recommend that you cycle off Blue UP™ every 8 weeks, for an “OFF” period of 1-4 weeks.

What are some good indications that I'm losing fat or gaining lean mass while on Blue UP™ ?


Mirror / Appearance
Measurements / Bodyfat caliper
Bodyweight / Strength


I workout in the evening / before bedtime, is there anything I should know ?


Yes, there is a stimulant free version of Blue UP™ available which may be a better choice in that scenario.

I workout in the morning / right after breakfast, is there anything I should know ?


Good question. In addition to Blue UP™, if you are working out on an empty stomach, we highly recommend adding Purple WRAATH™ pre-workout / pre-cardio for best results.

I heard that all of your products are "Real World" tested and 105% Guaranteed ?

I've noticed many natural test boosters that include such ingredients often recommend a dosage of twice per day. Would this be more effective and is it recommended?

Glad to see this FAQ up. A few quick questions...

1) I notice there's nothing telling you to avoid tyrosine containing products like Green Mag...

2) Would this be ok to take with Ragnarok, which has both tyrosine and caffeine in it? Or would it be overkill?

But if you're not supposed to take the stim version with GM....?
My GM is taken 1 hour pre, so does that mean I can't take the original version of BU pre too?

Is PCT neccessary after a non-hormonal Testosterone booster such as this? Also, will Blue UP inhibit the release of naturally produced Testosterone once I stop taking it?

But at 19 I really doubt you are in need of a test booster anyway.

Yeah, that made me hold off on the Blue Up for awhile. But now I've finally gotten around to using it!

Quick question, on off days, should you take it first thing in the morning, say 30-45 mins before eating? Or can you take it with food? Or should you just try to get it as close to when you normally would take it pre-WO?

In 10 days I'll finish my 2nd straight bottle (so, 2 months on).

I've had great results with Blue Up (StimFree), and hesitate to stop.

Can I go for a 3rd straight month? What is the guideline?

Just finished my third Stim Free bottle, after taking a forced month off because of a late delivery.

For this late 30s advanced, natural lifter, this is about the best, most effective product I've ever used.

I was shipped Blue Up regular (with caffeine by accident). So, for the next month I will be taking it, then rolling over to Stim Free (my preference).

Can you tell me how much caffeine is in Blue Up? I am trying to track my stimulant intake.

Just to clarify: Green MAG can be used with Blue Up (original) if it is taken 3 to 4 hours before? I have half a container of GM left, and while I do have a bottle of GB, taking 7 pills every day is not very economical. Substituting GM on off days would be nice if it is safe.

Yes you can take it and it will add to an already great stack. I would go with the stim-free version because you already getting enough stim from the White Flood. That way on off-days you can take the Stim-Free before bed.

I dont get why they would want to tarnish their image by hiring people like that. we are a true team and we are here to help our customers, not only because its the right thing to do in life (help people), but because we want a strong business that will last indefinitely into the future, so we can continue to help a greater number of people achieve their goals.
