Product Background


Factor Three: Virilitrac is a natural herbal based supplementation formulated to succor and stimulate the body's glandular system to increase testosterone secretions. It enjoys a long and successful history and has proven efficacious in elevating testosterone, enhancing virility, protecting the prostate, and ameliorating BPH.  

During August 1992, D.C.'s, D.O.' s, and M.D.'s began prescribing Factor Three: Virilitrac to their body building patients who were suffering from the stress and nervous anxiety encountered when coming off steroids.

By March 1993, health professionals from across the United States and Canada began reporting that prolonged use (6 months or longer) of Factor Three: Virilitrac had significantly elevated serum testosterone levels in their athletic patients and appeared to be promoting a natural anabolic state in the body.

In June 1998, Factor Three was reformulated utilizing newly researched Amazonian botanical extracts for increased potency.


During August 2005, the key phyto-chemical extracts in the herbals utilized in

Factor Three: Virilitrac were maximized to their full potency using the latest extraction technology available.


In late 2010, Factor Three: Virilitrac was reformulated when the latest medical expertise and clinical research showed the prostate had a direct influence on male health, testosterone production, and virility.


During 2013 several medical breakthroughs increased the knowledge base concerning the causes of erectile dysfunction and natural corrective procedures. Factor Three: Virilitrac was enhanced and augmented by utilizing more potent herbs and replacing those that lacked sufficient documentation of efficacy and/or promoted undesirable side effects. The result was the introduction of the "Blue Max" version of Factor Three: Virilitrac in January of 2014.


The Current State of Male Health


It is now abundantly clear from current research that male vitality, virility, and well being are inordinately dependent on natural testosterone production, a healthy prostate, and assimilating the proper nutrients. A man cannot achieve nor maintain his potential by concentrating on only one aspect of male health and ignoring its other two essential components.


Factor Three for Testosterone Support:

Testosterone is the most important androgen (hormone) in males. Androgens help develop primary and secondary sexual characteristics, increase strength and endurance, stimulate muscle growth and enhance sex drive. Testosterone is produced in the testes and, to a lesser degree, in the adrenal cortex and liver.57


Testosterone secretion begins to decline after males reach 26 to 28 years of age. Over age 60 one in three men are impotent estimates the National Institutes of Health! The normal reference range for testosterone is between 250 and 900 nanograms per deciliter of blood and varies considerable from individual to individual.

The average 25 year old male has a T-level of 600 ng/dl. After age 40 these normal levels start dropping by roughly one percent a year.58   

When natural increases in testosterone are achieved and maintained, the effects on muscle growth is optimized. However, when synthetic testosterone (anabolic steroids) or precursor testosterone androgens (such as androstenedione) are introduced directly into the body they bypass the normal metabolic pathway to testosterone production.59

The body reacts to this artificial increase by shutting down natural testosterone production, often resulting in devastating side effects such as liver or heart disease, hair loss, atrophying gonads, or loss of sex drive.


There has been a great deal of myth and hype surrounding male vitality, virility, and well being, specifically regarding the ability to increase testosterone levels. Much of it is simply false.


Most natural testosterone boosting products advertised today are scams designed to prey on unknowledgeable individuals. The ingredients are weak, of insufficient quantity, incorrectly analogous, or lack synergism. In short, improperly and poorly formulated and/or utilizing inferior ingredients.60   

Testosterone levels can be increased naturally by exercise, diet, sexual activity, stress reduction, maintaining a healthy prostate, and exogenous supplementation.61

There are several medicinal herbs and nutrients that do work synergistically to elevate testosterone levels. Such herbs have been clinically shown to boost blood levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), a pituitary hormone that binds to receptors on Leydig cells in the testes, stimulating synthesis and secretion of testosterone. (Consult Validation of Ingredients in this Report for complete documented efficacy of ingredients).

Factor Three for Virility Support:


While almost all men will experience some degree of sexual difficulty at one time or another, erectile dysfunction  otherwise known as impotence, affects more than 30 million men each year.62

There are three major causes of erectile dysfunction, two physical (organic) and the other psychological.

(1) The major physical cause is vascular obstruction or impairment of blood circulation to the penis. Erections are completely controlled by blood pressure and, therefore, the same clogged blood vessels that cause a heart attack can also cause a flaccid penis..

Researchers examined 440 men, age 40 years and older, all with impotency and found that 92% of them had at least two major risk factors toward heart disease.63

(2) Another physical sexual dysfunction is hypertension. At least half of the 50 million hypertensive individuals in the U.S. are on some type of medication to lower their blood pressure. Anti-hypertensive medications, anti-ulcer drugs, and lithium can induce erectile dysfunction.

(3) The major psychological reason for impotency is anxiety! Worry and anxiety make erections harder to get and sustain as they trigger the sympathetic nervous system. (The parasympathetic nervous system controls erections).

Acute anxiety may be a symptom of hypoglycemia since controlling blood sugar is an important key to controlling anxiety.64 High blood sugar, as a result of ingesting an over abundance of simple carbohydrates, can result in diabetes, obesity and impotency.

Conventional allopathic doctors usually treat impotence by prescribing a drug regimen or performing surgery but both have drawbacks.

First and foremost, there is no single substance or drug that acts as an aphrodisiac because the human sexual response of erection and orgasm involves the brain, the nervous system, the spine, the circulatory system and the glandular system.


Oral therapies can overcome performance anxiety, vascular impairment and low blood pressure drug problems.

Oral medications such as sildenafil citrate (Viagra
®), tadalafil (Cialis®) and vardenafil (Levitra®), are a class of medications known as PDE-5 inhibitors. They help relax the smooth muscles and blood vessels in the penis, which enhances blood flow, resulting in a natural erection.  All are contraindicated in patients using organic nitrates and heart medications. One out of six patients experience headaches and  in addition to being expensive these drugs are not effective in three out of ten patients.65

Factor Three: Virilitrac contains Epimedium sagittatum standardized to 20% icariin, its primary active constituent. Icariin works by increasing levels of nitric oxide, which relax smooth muscle. It has been demonstrated to achieve this effect by inhibiting PDE-5 activity (Chiu, JH, et al. Int Journal of Impotence Res., vol 18, pp. 335-42. 2006).

Epimedium was utilized in a patent infringement case to rescind parts of the U.S. Viagra
® patent based on Historic use in Chinese medicine.


The specific claim was that Viagra® was the first medical example of a PDE-5 inhibitor which treated erectile dysfunction and therefore claimed patent protection from all similar PDE-5 inhibitors. Patent examiners used epimedium as an example of prior use and rescinded those portions of Pfizer Drug's patent in February 2010.

Factor Three: Virilitrac contains only those nutrients and botanical medicines with proven long-term effectiveness in providing metabolic support and good hormonal health required by the body to promote vitality and sustain effective sexual activity.

Factor Three as a support for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH):

The prostate is the most common site of disorders in the male genitourinary system. Enlargement of the prostate, known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) affects more than half of men between ages 40 to 50 and close to 90 percent of men by the age of 70.


At approximately age 40, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a potent hormone derived from testosterone, increases in the male body and accumulates in the prostate. An excess of dihydrotestosterone causes pathological prostate growth, or BPH. Estrogen levels are also increased in men with BPH as estrogen attaches to receptors in enlarged prostate tissue. (Note: Testosterone increases as the prostate is 'normalized and the levels of DHT and estrogen falls.)


The goal of BPH treatment is to reduce excessive cell growth by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and by preventing estrogen from attaching to receptors in enlarged prostate tissue. From a naturopathic and alternative viewpoint, the safest way this is accomplished is through medicinal herbs and supplements.


The specific herbs and nutrients clinically shown to ameliorate benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and maintain a healthy prostate are provided in this Report. (Consult Validation of Ingredients for complete documented efficacy of ingredients).


A prostectomy - the surgical removal of all or part of the prostate - leaves a man with a better than 50 percent chance of being impotent and incontinent! Clearly, natural prostate support is one of the most important proactive stances a man can take to maintain his health.

We recommend the following prostate self assessment test on the Mayo Clinic website to determine if you may have BPH:


Holistic Recommendations for increased Muscle Tone, Vitality, Virility and Prostate Health:

1) Eat foods as close to their natural state as possible. There are over 2,800 FDA-approved additives with another 10,000 additives being "incidental" to the agriculture and food processing industry.66

2) Eat a wide variety of foods. Ensuring proper nutrition can maximize androgens and individuals who eat a varied diet have a better nutrient intake than those whose diet remains staid.67

3) Eat fish on a consistent basis. Individuals who eat at least two ounces of fish per week cut their heart disease risk in half!68

4) Balance the diet with the correct ratio of protein to fats and carbohydrates. Most individuals, especially athletes,  consume four to eight times more protein than they need each day!69 Daily calories should be comprised of approximately 20% protein, 20% fat, and 60% carbohydrate, preferably complex carbohydrate.

5) Drink 5 glasses of water daily. Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits. Water also helps to prevent sagging skin. Skin cells are buoyed by water which pumps the skin and leaves it clear, healthy and resilient.70

6) Maintain ideal body fat composition. It is the quality of body weight, not the quantity, that has a positive bearing on health.71 Ideal body fat percentage for men in their 20's should be 11% to 14%. For men over 50, this percentage should fall between 18% and 22%.

7) Exercise regularly (at least 3 to 4 times per week). The body evolved, and is designed, to be active - not sedentary. Science has shown regular exercise lowers blood pressure and fats in the blood while improving blood glucose, alertness, self-image, absorption of nutrients, and life span.72

8) Supplementation. Take Factor Three: Virilitrac in the dosage recommended. In addition: Bodybuilders should consider augmenting this formulation with Factor Five: Osteo-X to maintain bone density and joint and connective tissue flexibility.

9) Reduce or avoid alcohol consumption. Alcohol acts first as a stimulant - keeping you from getting an erection, and then as a sedative - keeping you from using it! Further, alcohol promotes nutritional deficiencies and lowers blood sugar.7
