    Cordyceps militaris Fruit Body Extract increases testosterone and DHT secretion I personally haven't tried cordyceps but their pro-libido and pro-energy effects are well know in the nootropic community, in fact they are often combined with lion's mane, which is known to lower libido and dht, to counteract its side effects.

    Progesterone Is Androgenic

    I am posting this study as a response to the attacks I keep getting over email and PM, claiming that there absolutely no evidence for my statements that progesterone has androgenic effects (depending on the dose).

    5-AR Inhibitor Drugs Like Finasteride Cause Persistent ED And Lower Testosterone

    The FDA has denied for decades that the mainstream drugs for hair loss (MPB) and benign prostate enlargement (BPH) cause any persistent problems. It was in the minds of the users, the FDA said. Upon discontinuation, the problems were said to disappear within 2-4 weeks. But the reports on long...

    Omega-3 (DHA, EPA) Degrades The Androgen Receptor

    One of the reasons the medical industry continues to promotes the use of fish oils is that in animal studies it was shown to shrink the prostate.

    DIM Is A Potent Androgen Antagonist And Estrogen Agonist

    The question of supplementing DIM often comes up on this forum despite Peat directly advising against it. Aside from its known anti-thyroid functions, we can now add a potent androgen antagonism to its list of "benefits". So, please stop loading up on DIM in the (false) hope that it somehow...

    Pregnenolone & Progesterone Are Both Agonists Of The Androgen Receptor

    Prostate Enlargement (BPH) May Be Due To Endotoxin

    BPH is a very common problem, apparently affecting more than 70%of men over 50. Ray has said in some email exchanges that prostatitis and BPH are linked with endotoxin. I was not able to find much published research on the topic but this new study finally makes that claim. What is more...

    Many Officially Diagnosed Cancers Are Not Cancer At All

    While this study is mostly about thyroid "cancer" it actually highlights a problem that Ray has written a lot about - i.e. the manipulation of official diagnostic criteria to skew disease cure rates in favor of modern medicine. Thankfully, the trend seems to be reversing and thyroid "cancer" is...

    Prolactin As A Causative Agent In Prostate Cancer

    Just wanted to post this, given the almost perfect correlation between prolactin and expression of estrogen "receptors" in tissues. If prolactin is a causative agent in prostate cancer, than the current idea of treating prostate cancer with estrogen is laughable. I also posted a study showing...

    Low Testosterone Levels Tied To Worse Prognosis For Prostate Cancer

    I think every urologist should read this study before they put their patients on anti-androgenic drugs to treat BPH and early stage prostate cancer. Low free testosterone levels predict disease reclassification in men with prostate cancer undergoing active surveillance - San Francisco - 2014 -...
