    L. plantarum protects testicles & lowers inflammation/endotoxin

    It is well known that phtalates used in plastics are endocrine disruptors and damage testicular tissue.

    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...

    Supplements to prevent gynecomastia?

Last year I took bloodworks and they showed low vit D and low LH, so I've started vitamin D and magnesium. I'm going...

    Cistanche increases steroidogenic enzymes, lowers NO, helps osteoporosis and Alzheimer's

    I posted these studies in another thread, but I feel they deserve their own thread as they show that cistanche is helping the body on a systemic level. A few new studies on cistanche tubulosa: This one shows that cistanche increases biosynthesis of testosterone by increasing important...

    Heart attack survivors have high stress (cortisol/adrenaline) hypersensitivity, low androgens

    A very interesting study that highlights yet again the connection between chronic stress and ill systemic health, especially cardiovascular disease (CVD). The study demonstrates that people who had experienced a heart attack have dramatically higher higher cortisol and adrenaline/noradrenaline...

    Low energy production (glucose metabolism) may cause andropause

    As many of my readers know, aging men can also experience the equivalent of menopause and doctors informally call that state "andropause". Its official name is age-related hypogonadism and most of that hypogonadism is of the "secondary" type - i.e. the gonads appears to be in fine shape but for...
