The following is an excerpt from a larger HRL publication on herbal testosterone
Most middle aged men produce sufficient levels of testosterone, a key hormone that regulates sexual health, sexual desire, energy levels, mood, anabolic activity and several other bodily and mental functions. As men age, a number of men experience a decrease in testosterone levels; this can lead to decreased stamina, low sexual desires, lack of energy and poor muscle growth.
Several medicinal herbs can help to increase testosterone levels naturally, particularly in athletes and older men. We call these herbal testosterone boosters, herbal testosterone supplements etc… While testosterone-increasing herbs have not been expansively studied in humans, many are considered to be safer and more effective than any anabolic steroids. Some herbal testosterone supplements can be more effective than prescription testosterone medications and creams.
These herbs have been used by centuries in many countries around the world, both developed and third world. Let us highlight 3 very popular herbal testosterone ingredients that can be found in HRL’s line of herbal testosterone supplements
Saw Palmetto for naturally increasing testosterone
Traditionally used to maintain prostate health, saw palmetto is also a viable herbal testosterone boosting supplement. As a matter of fact, the U.S. National Institutes of Health states that saw palmetto establishes an intense multifaceted effect on the human endocrine system for an all natural herbal supplement. Findings in multiple studies support a stable balance of testosterone and estrogen. Saw palmetto may support sperm production, sexual vitality and muscle growth; some studies also indicate its use as a treatment for male pattern baldness.
Fenugreek for naturally increasing testosterone levels
Fenugreek is an annual plant/herb classified in the fabaceae family. The herbal supplement ingredient has been cultivated worldwide for centuries. Fenugreek seeds have been discovered in the Middle East dating back to well before 4000 BC. India is the largest producer of Fenugreek in the world and has been using it medicinally for hundreds of years. Increasing testosterone seems to be the largest use of this herbal remedy.
Horny goat weed for naturally increasing testosterone levels
