Getting my test results was kind of a shock. I asked for the T test out of curiosity more than anything else. I’m not sure what to do next.
I do wonder if any of my supplements have anything to do with my results. I’ve been taking regular Animal Pak multi vits, and stacking an occasional Animal STAK or Animal Test. The Animal Test has stuff to help you increase your natural production, but no prohormones etc… It has been at least a month since I’ve taken any Animal Test or Animal Stak. I have not taken any other supplements.
I’m open to all advice and criticism - I’m off to read all I can read here.
