Testosterone Herbs

Testosterone herbs can be helpful for both women and men experiencing menopause symptoms. 

During male menopause, estrogen becomes a bit more pronounced, so men often move into a renewed interest in the home and family at this time of their lives, and become more compassionate and expressive. 

Testosterone Herbs

Testosterone production is strongly promoted by regular use of any of the following herbs.. 

Avena Sativa is believed to free up testosterone in both men and women. 

Avena Sativa is an herbal extract from wild oats straw. It is sometimes known as green oats, and is now commonly taken as a natural aphrodisiac. 

Nettles and Wild Oats
Extracts of wild oats and nettles can safely help increase testosterone levels in the body. At least six constituents of nettle root inhibit aromatase, reducing conversion of androgens to estrogens. 

The enzyme called aromatase works naturally to convert testosterone into estrogen. If someone has a lot of the aromatase enzyme, it will convert some of that testosterone to estrogen, which in turn will shut off some of the testosterone effects. 

There are no formal studies of wild oat testing on humans. But in many anecdotal clinical observations, particularly with men in their 20s and 30s who had low testosterone levels for their age, have shown that supplementation with Avena sativa resulting in dramatic increases in testosterone levels. 

The quality of the extract of the wild oat supplement is very important. Most extracts tested show little to no presence of the active avenacosides. This is important to note since this provides all of the potency. If you supplement using wild oats, make sure the supplement comes from a trusted supplier.

Saw palmetto
In both men and women, testosterone is converted into a more potent hormone called DHT. DHT is the hormone that stimulates hirsutism. 

Hirsutism is the term used for excess facial and body hair growth in women. 

It refers to a male pattern of hair growth over the moustache and beard areas. Or more hair growth than usual on the arms and legs. 

Hirsutism is basically the loss of hair on the head and hair growing where you don't want it. 

If you can reduce DHT, you reduce the growth of hair in these less desirable places. 

Saw palmetto appears to reduce DHT in three different ways..

  • Promoting the breakdown of DHT.

  • Inhibiting DHT production.

  • Inhibiting the binding of DHT to its cell receptors.

One of the primary ways in which Saw palmetto works in the body is by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase. 5-alpha-reductase is the enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. 

What's important to know is Saw palmetto supplementation lowers DHT resulting in the reduction of hirsutism and increasing available testosterone. 





Puncture Weed - Tribulus Terrestris
Tribulus Terrestris has been used for centuries in China to calm the liver, treat dizziness, headaches, and premature ejaculation. 

Tribulus terrestris enhances testosterone levels by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) levels. 

Luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are called gonadotropins because it stimulates the testes in males and the ovaries in females. 

LH is basically responsible for instructing your body to produce testosterone. 

Herbalists and health practitioners use catuaba as an extremely powerful tonic for the libido as well as a central nervous system stimulant. Catuaba is also used for..

  • general exhaustion and fatigue

  • sexual impotence

  • poor memory

  • insomnia related to hypertension

  • agitation
