OptiMale x Polaris BJJ Blood Test

Our BJJ Blood Test has been designed by OptiMale and Polaris, specifically for athletes and sportsmen in BJJ and other combat sports.

This specialised test checks for levels of:

  • Total Testosterone
  • Free Testosterone
  • SHBG
  • Albumin
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B12
  • Creatine Kinase
  • CRP High Sensitivity (Inflammation Test)

About the OptiMale x Polaris BJJ Blood Test

Total Testosterone is an indicator of the total amount of testosterone in the blood. If low, it can cause symptoms of testosterone deficiency such as low libido, reduced muscle mass and strength, and low mood.

Free Testosterone is a calculated value that indicates the amount of testosterone free to be used by the cells in the body. In some cases total testosterone can be normal whilst free testosterone is low. In these cases a man with low free testosterone will experience the same symptoms as someone with low total testosterone.

This is normally because there are higher levels of hormones such as SHBG (sex binding hormone globulin) which binds to testosterone preventing it from being used by the body.

Having low Vitamin B12 or Vitamin D can lead to low energy levels, poor sleep and recovery.

A raised Creatine Kinase is an indicator of muscle damage which can be used to evaluate over-training.

CRP is a marker of inflammation, if this is raised it can indicate certain health issues, as well as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Exercise should reduce CRP levels.

How You Can Take the OptiMale x Polaris BJJ Blood Test – Home Finger-Prick or Venous Blood Test Kit

Regrettably we are only able to sell Home Finger-Prick Test Kits during the Coronavirus lockdown, as we cannot offer Clinic Visits or Nurse Home Visits to perform venous blood tests. If you have a family member that lives with you and is a healthcare professional who could take your blood venously, please contact us directly and we can send you a venous blood test kit.

You can choose either a finger-prick sample collection kit which you can take in the comfort of your home, or a venous kit which you can take to a nurse or clinic, so they can take your blood sample for you.

If you would prefer to have your blood sample taken in a local clinic, for a £30 fee we can arrange for you to visit a clinic and have your blood sample taken by a nurse. You can order a clinic visit here – Clinic Visit

We can also offer a home visit service where a nurse will come to your home to take the blood sample for you. You can order a home visit here for £70 – Nurse Home Visit
