Men – Are you using herbal supplements to try to increase your testosterone? There are 3 methods used to do this:

  1. Block the production of estrogen from testosterone. Bad idea! Estrogen helps to prevent cardiovascular disease that causes heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral vascular disease.
  2. Block the production of dihydrotesterone (DHT) from testosterone. DHT is more powerful than testosterone and is responsible for libido.
  3. Displace testosterone from binding globulin which acts like a “testosterone sponge.” If you have elevated binding globulin, the cause should be treated, not cover up the problem with a herbal “band-aid.”
