Men – Are you using herbal supplements to try to increase your testosterone? There are 3 methods used to do this:
- Block the production of estrogen from testosterone. Bad idea! Estrogen helps to prevent cardiovascular disease that causes heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral vascular disease.
- Block the production of dihydrotesterone (DHT) from testosterone. DHT is more powerful than testosterone and is responsible for libido.
- 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.”
