Hey there, Doug here, and here’s our 4th weekly recap of what’s happened with Muxcle.com. As always, we’ll be looking at what’s new with the site, along with anything interesting happening online in the fitness world.
What’s happened on Muxcle.com this week?
Unlike the last update, there’s a lot more updates for Muxcle.com this week, both on the site and in the online community.
We’ll walk you through each change and what you should know about it.
Testosterone Booster Ingredients that Work Article
Last week we mentioned that we were getting closer to finishing our article on the best testosterone booster ingredients on the market.
We’re now happy to say that the main ingredients we wish to cover are done, and the page is up. Give it a read, it’s a monster of an article and should give you the information you’re looking for regarding the most effective ingredients.
Let us know what you think, if you feel there’s something missing from it let us know on the contact page, or comment on the article itself, we’ll take a look and get back to you.
Full FAQ: Fat Burners
We get asked a lot of questions on the site regarding the supplements we look at. We’re surprised at how many questions we get regarding fat burners in general, not specific products.
To clear up as much confusion as we can, we’ve put together an article that takes into account all the questions you’ve asked us, along with our full answers to help guide you through these supplements easier.
This is another one of these articles that we like to think as something that is always growing. Any questions you have for us, you can either leave it as a comment on the article, or hit us up on the contact page.
Here’s the link to the FAQ:
Let us know what you think.
General Site Updates
Nothing too major to report this week, we’re still in the process of revamping the architecture of the site. That will have our full attention once the core blog posts and guides are finished.
As for now, this week’s general update to the site is that the social pages are now linked in the top the menu underneath Contact. This should make it easier for newcomers to Muxcle to find our (Doug’s) Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
It’s a good move and should make us more accessible to you.
As you know, we’re turning this site into a huge resource. And as we’ve already mentioned to do so we have big plans for revamping the site’s architecture, we’ll reveal more on this in another update.
Before we can roll it out in the format we want to make sure it has the full in-depth content to support it. That’s why we’re aggressively writing the blog posts.
Over the next coming weeks we’ll be developing the fat burning section, then the performance section and finally the cognition section. There will be more additions, but they’ll be our core categories for now.
The next articles in our line of site are fat burning nutrients that work, and the worst in the industry. They’ll be launching soon.
Any New Reviews?
Rhonda’s back and has covered the diet pill KETO CUTS by Nature Driven. The main thing that stood out to her is that it had a slim nutrient profile, but with some effective options in there. Green Tea and Caffeine are always a good sign.
Unfortunately this is another supplement that is plagued by proprietary blends – which is still a huge problem in the industry when it comes to transparency. She gave some recommendations on how it could be better, and were the trouble spots are.
Apparently it’s a big one on Amazon at the moment, quite a few of you requested us to review it, the Keto supplements are really taking over. You should give it a read if you’re interested.
What Happened Online This Week?
Here’s a quick rundown of the articles, posts and general chatter from the online fitness community that we thought was worth sharing with you:
Is Drinking Soy Milk Bad for Men?
This is a question that comes up a lot when it comes to testosterone levels. We’ve all heard at some point or another that soy milk increases your estrogen levels and cause rises in the levels of the female hormone.
Although that is the claim, we can confirm that this thought is actually a myth.
This week, Reddit’s r/nutrition section asked the same question:
“I’m considering buying one of those soy milk making machines where you can use dried soy beans to produce soy milk. I heard that soy beans have estrogen and can hurt men in the long run if they consume enough soy milk over time.
Is this true, or is this a reality?
Does drinking soy milk over the long run impact weight loss efforts in men?”
– u/DashcamMike (Source)
It was met by a great answer from u/Omnibeneviolent who gave a short to the point response that was covered in studies. This is exactly the kind of answer you want to see:
“Plant phytoestrogen is not the same as estrogen, and may actually have many health benefits, including increasing protection from various cancers, cardiovascular disease, and brain disorders. Studies have also shown that phytoestrogen does not alter the levels of bioavalable testosterone in men, and that soy-based formula does not have any adverse affects on human growth or development when compared to dairy-based formula.
- Phytoestrogen Biological Actions on Mammalian Reproductive System and Cancer Growth – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3097497/ – Sci Pharm. 2011 Mar; 79(1): 1–20.
- Phyto-oestrogens and cancer – http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanonc/article/PIIS1470-2045(02)00777-5/abstract – The Lancet Oncology, Volume 3, No. 6, p364–373, June 2002
- Clinical studies show no effects of soy protein or isoflavones on reproductive hormones in men: results of a meta-analysis – http://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282(09)00966-2/abstract – American Society of Reproductive Medicine, Fertility and Sterility 94 (3): 997–1007.”
Complete with references to the studies too. Such a good answer. The thread is worth checking out.
That’s it for now, short and sweet but we have a lot do this week. See you next Monday!
