BAKING POWDER GLUTEN & ALUMINIUM FREE
Did you know you can make self-raising flour from plain flour using baking powder?
Due to the way the chemicals react in our baking powder (see below) it is important that once you add the liquid to it the recipes, you get it in the oven ASAP.
A bit of Baking Powder History
Originally baking powder was made from baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and creme of tartar (tatric acid), like ths one is.
For the chemists in the kitchen out there, the baking soda is alkaline and the creme of tartar is acidic. When the two are combined and liquid is added a chemical reaction happens, carbon dioxide is made and the product will rise (i.e. acts as a leavening agent). Quite a simple process really. However as creme of tartar is quite costly, so the food manufacturing business took it upon themselves to find cheaper, alternative acids to creme of tartar. This is when aluminium based acid products were investigated and used as alternatives or in addition to traditional baking powder. The aluminium based acids react with baking soda when heated above 50 degrees celcius, and the leavening starts to happen.
>You may detect a slightly metallic flavour if you use an aluminum based baking powder so why not just use the good old original one!

EDITORIAL REPORT: MECHANISMS OF TESTOSTERONE AND THE ANABOLIC EFFECTS ON MUSCLE
Multiple studies have illustrated that testosterone produces muscle hypertrophy by enhancing fractional muscle protein synthesis. The molecular basis of this anabolic effect however, is debatable. Urban et al. have suggested that testosterone arouses the expression of IGF-I and downregulates IGF binding protein-4 in the muscle. Reciprocal deviations in IGF-I and its binding protein thus offer a potential mechanism for intensifying the anabolic signal. It is unclear whether the anabolic effect of supraphysiologic quantities of testosterone are facilitated through an androgenreceptor-mediated mechanism. In vitro binding studies, Saartok et al. suggested that the androgen receptors in almost all tissues are either saturated or downregulated at testosterone concentrations that are at the lower end of the normal male range. Thus, it is possible that the supraphysiologic amounts of androgen produce muscle hypertrophy through androgen- receptor-independent mechanisms, such as via an antiglucocorticoid effect. Androgenic steroids, however, possess a very low affnity for binding to glucocorticoid receptor. Therefore, androgen modulation of glucocorticoid function via a post-receptor mechanism or by regulation of glucocorticoid-mediated gene expression has been assumed. The effects of androgen and their potential to be carried out via non-classical binding sites cannot be overlooked. The consequences of testosterone on the muscle are controlled by a number of various influences such as the genetic makeup, the status of growth hormone secretory, diet, exercise, cytokines, thyroid hormones, and glucocorticoids. Testosterone may also influence muscle function by its effects on neuromuscular transmission.It is also probable that athletes using supraphysiologic quantities of testosterone may train harder due to the alleged behavioral effects of testosterone; this could incidentally stimulate muscle hypertrophy.
The structure–activity relationships of androgenic steroids are not well understood. Until recently, it remained unclear whether the myotropic activity of androgens could be detached from their androgenic activity. Receptor binding studies in the rat seminal vesicle have insinuated that the changes in the effects of nandrolone, an androgenic steroid declared to be more anabolic than androgenic in its actions, and testosterone, the prototypical androgen, may potentially be related to the fact that 5-a-reductase increases the affinity of testosterone, but reduces the affnity of nandrolone for the androgen receptor. 5-a-reductase is an enzyme involved in steroid metabolism that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), an androgen with a greater affinity for androgen receptors, in the cytoplasm. Thus, in relation to testosterone, nandrolone may potentially have a greater proportional effect in the tissues with low 5-a-reductase activity such as the muscle, in comparison with tissues with high 5-a-reductase activity like the prostate. >>
Cyclo TestTM acts synergistically with any bulking regimen to generate an ergogenic environment that significantly enhances free testosterone and Human Growth Hormone levels. By combining unique components that work together to amplify the growth factor while simultaneously regulating estrogen levels, Cyclo TestTM has been specifically designed to increase your anabolic potential and help promote strength gains.
Cyclo Test integrates the unique ingredient 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, an extract from Urtica Diodica, or more commonly referred to as stinging nettle. 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran works by attaching to the sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Sex hormone-binding globulin regulate the amount of biologically active hormones in the body mainly by binding to sex hormones. When 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran attaches to SHBG, it becomes inactive so it is incapable of binding to sex hormones. In theory, this allows free testosterone and estradiol to rise, thus promoting higher levels of testosterone and muscle growth. 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, in combination with the testosterone-enhancing effects of Eurycoma Longifolia Jack, provides the perfect environment for optimal strength gains and lean muscle development. Bioperine® is also incorporated into this stack to enhance the bioavailability of these components via increased absorption rates.
Growth Factor Amplification
Velvet Bean Extract is derived from specific legumes known as Mucuna Pruriens. L-Dopa is a neurotransmitter that can be found in high amounts in velvet bean extract. L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts to dopamine, which is vital for brain function and the maintenance of various systems of the body. L-Dopa enhances the natural production of growth hormone, as well as other hormones circulating in the body. While the health benefits of L-Dopa have been researched for many years, its availability from Mucuna Pruriens has only recently been revealed. It introduces a natural source of L-Dopa, thus it is biocompatible with the body and more readily absorbed. Cyclo TestTM scientifically combines velvet bean extract with the thermogenesis-stimulating effects of Coleus Forskohlii and Chelated Magnesium to ensure optimal absorption and enhance hormonal levels.*
Cyclo TestTM is specifically devised to stimulate the production of testosterone and other anabolic hormones, while simultaneously minimizing the impact of estrogen on the body. The metabolism of estrogen occurs via one of two pathways: the [destructive] metabolic pathway (16 alpha-hydroxylation) or the [favorable] metabolic pathway (2-hydroxylation). Indole- 3-Carbinol has been suggested to shift the production of estrogen metabolites away from the destructive 16-hydroxy towards the more beneficial 2-hydroxy metabolites. Indole-3-carbinol is converted by stomach acid to diindolymethane (DIM) and indole (3,2,b) carbazole (ICZ). DIM yields more [beneficial] estrogen metabolites, which compete with testosterone for protein binding, thus helping to maintain higher levels of free testosterone. Indole-3-carbinol, in combination with the hormone-balancing effects of other various ingredients such as D-Calcium Glucarate help to promote the detoxification of excess estrogen circulating in the body, which ultimately promotes increased levels of testosterone.*
Cyclo Test™ is the ideal supplement for athletes looking to support their anabolic potential. Combining advanced, testosterone-supporting ingredients such as Eurycoma Longifolia Jack and Velvet Bean Extract, Cyclo Test™ acts synergistically with any bulking regimen to generate a superlative environment to assist with free testosterone levels.*

ORGANIC BROWN RICE SYRUP
Organic brown rice syrup can be used as an alternative to regular sweeteners when baking or on toast, waffles, pancakes or drinks. Organic rice syrup contains no fructose so is suitable for those sensitive to fructose or following a low FODMAP diet.
Organic brown rice syrup is not as sweet as honey or sugar. It is produced using organic brown rice.
How To Use
The mild delicious sweetness of organic brown rice syrup can be enjoyed as a spread, drizzled on pancakes, used in baking, cooking or drinks. You can substitute 1¼ cups of organic brown rice syrup in any recipe that calls for 1 cup of sugar. Depending on the consistency you may need to reduce other liquids in the recipe by ¼ cup.
Growing and Processing
Organic brown rice syrup is produced by hydrolyzing brown rice starch with natural enzymes (the enzymes help to break down the starches). The liquid is strained off and reduced until the desired consistency is obtained.
