Why Choose PCT Assist?
PCT Assist contains precise ratios of active ingredients at proper dosages and correct standardizations in order to help optimize natural testosterone levels along with helping to control estrogen. There are no filler ingredients; every active in PCT Assist is specifically dosed to help you maximize your results.
PCT Assist’s cost effective formula can help save you money by eliminating the need to have to purchase numerous standalone products to get the proper amounts of actives included in the PCT Assist formula.
Note: For those using PCT Assist for PCT purposes, PCT Assist can be stacked with Competitive Edge Labs Cycle Assist for an even more complete support solution.

Examining the Ingredients:
A lot of ingredients look great on paper but when it comes to real world applications they fail for a variety of reasons. No matter how high the aromatase inhibiting score of an ingredient or how high an ingredients binding affinity for aromatase is in a test tube, if it is poorly absorbed, unstable in the GI, or metabolized too quickly in the body, it will be ineffective. This is where 7-Methoxyflavone shines. It has been suggested that 7-Methoxyflavone has a very high aromatase inhibiting score AND a high intestinal absorption and metabolic stability rate.*
7-Methoxyflavone falls into the flavone category of ingredients. Flavones are plant chemicals that have been suggested to be competitive inhibitors of cytochrome P450 aromatase with respect to the androgen substrate. Something unique that makes 7-Methoxyflavone desirable is that unlike most flavones, it appears to be very selective and seems to inhibit aromatase but not 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Optimizing the 17b-HSD activity is important for the endogenous testosterone synthesis.*
If you find yourself saying ‘okay, I just read all that but I don’t know what that means or how it applies to me’ – here is a quick, basic understanding of aromatase enzymes. Aromatase enzymes are part of the body’s biochemistry system that are used in the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. When aromatase enzyme activity is inhibited, this prevents the conversion of testosterone to estrogen thus preventing the negative feedback loop in the HPTA (Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis).*
Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is a naturally occurring phytochemical found such vegetables as broccoli and cabbage. It is included in PCT Assist due to its effect on modulating estrogen metabolism. I3C is thought to help increase beneficial estrogen metabolites while decreasing the ‘bad’ estrone metabolites.*
Icariin (20%) (Horny Goat Weed):
Icariin is derived from Horny Goat Weed. There are numerous standardizations available, but for the purpose of inclusion in PCT Assist, we selected the ultra-potent 20% extract.
Icariin is thought to increase circulating testosterone levels as well as help improve sex drive, making it an excellent addition during the post cycle therapy period. In addition, it is thought that two of the metabolites of Icariin may be potent estrogen receptor antagonists, making it even more synergistic with the other ingredients in the PCT Assist formulation.*
Mucuna Pruriens SE (Precision Blended 95% & 20% Extracts)
Mucuna Pruriens is an adaptogenic herb that helps increase LH (Luteinizing hormone) which can lead to increases in testosterone production and release. It can also significantly help elevate levels of growth hormone (GH) in the body, and lower prolactin levels by increasing dopamine neurotransmitter synthesis.
Piperine is included in the PCT Assist formula due to its ability to enhance absorption of nutrients and phytochemicals in the intestines. It is also thought to inhibit the glucuronidase enzyme, which is an enzyme that degrades many ingredients.
