    Masculine bone growth on a female body

    What would be the cause? I have been hypo all my life - perhaps it is from lack of progesterone production over time causing testosterone to be the main source of my bone growth? It looks very masculine. Is there anything that can be done? It is very noticeable in the sun as well.

    One of the best TRT alternatives (natural potent stack)

    Going on TRT can be a challenging decision. How long are you going to be on? How are you going to get off? Do you want to get off? What about fertility, risks, success rate, etc? I'm not trying to say TRT shouldn't be an option, but want to give an alternative. Fixing hypogonadism naturally is...

    Long term DHEA supplementation doubles androgens and progesterone in males

    I'm not sure if this study has been posted before , at least I haven found anything under the "DHEA" tag. Anyways, it's always good to have more in vivo evidence for peaty substances and what they do in real life. This study gave aging men with partial androgen deficiency (58-69)the "low dose"...

    L. plantarum protects testicles & lowers inflammation/endotoxin

    It is well known that phtalates used in plastics are endocrine disruptors and damage testicular tissue. This study is showing that Lactobacillus plantarum (LP) alleviates testicular damage, increases testosterone back to normal levels, lowers inflammatory mediators like TNF-a, IL-1b and IL-6 and...

    Oral testosterone + vitamin E may treat NAFLD, NASH, cirrhosis in humans

    Several years ago, I posted a few studies from the 1970s demonstrating very high cure rates of advanced cirrhosis in humans with a combination treatment of testosterone (T) and vitamin B1 (thiamine). Not bad for a condition modern medicine tells us is incurable and the only option the patient...

    Androgens (T, DHT) highly protective against the flu

    A gem of a study that throws a wrench in one of medicine's core dogmas - i.e. androgens have detrimental effects on the immune system and males have evolved to live with a trade-off between high androgen levels (and as such high fertility) and higher risk of severe viral episodes that can be...

    DHT better (and safer) than testosterone for improving blood pressure, insulin levels

    A great human study on the beneficial effects of androgens for a variety of metabolic biomarkers associated with insulin resistance and diabetes II. The only gripe I have with this study is that they claim it was conducted with "healthy" men when in reality all men had low plasma total...

    Testosterone therapy (TRT) reverses hair loss (in women)

    The evidence undermining the fake/corrupt hypothesis of "androgenic alopecia" keeps accumulating. I really wish the study below was conducted in men instead of women, since its findings would have probably finally put an end to the debate as to whether androgens promote or inhibit hair growth...

    Childhood stress causes mental illness in adults by blunting androgens

    Yet another great study solidifying the evidence on just how detrimental early childhood stress is. It has been known for decades that childhood stress leads to early puberty, and that the latter is associated with greatly increased risk of chronic diseases later in life, as well as early death...
