Has anyone ever taken T boosters?

I recently bought Arimatest [Sublingual pills] and i was wondering if anyone had any success with these. Thanks

 Hey guys.  My name is Chris and have just started looking into the possibility of taking herbs to boost my natural t levels.  Anything anyone can share would be helpful.  Good resources for information, etc.  Thanks.

These Substances Facilitate the Production/Function of Testosterone

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) increases plasma Testosterone levels (via its influence on Acetylcholine neurotransmission in the Striatal Cortex of the Brain).

These Substances Interfere with Testosterone

* Caffeine decreases free Testosterone levels (in postmenopausal women).
* Elevated Cortisol levels inhibit the production of Testosterone.
* Melatonin inhibits the production of Testosterone - although low dosage levels of Melatonin (up to 3 mg per day) do not appear to interfere with Testosterone production.
* Progesterone lowers endogenous Testosterone production (in men) to levels that prevent the proper maturation of Sperm.
* Alcohol (ethanol) decreases the production of Testosterone and lowers the body's Testosterone levels.
* Cocaine lowers serum Testosterone levels. Marijuana reduces serum Testosterone levels.
* Tobacco smoking inhibits the production of Testosterone (by causing the destruction of Leydig Cells that normally produce Testosterone).
* Vegetarians have approximately 18% lower Testosterone levels compared to meat eaters (this occurs because vegetarians have a lower intake of Dietary Fats which are precursors for Testosterone production; also the Fiber Polysaccharides in Vegetables bind to Testosterone and other Steroid Hormones).
* Excessive Exercise (i.e. overtraining) suppresses the body's Testosterone production
* Endurance Exercise reduces (both bound and free) Testosterone levels.
* Excessive Isotonic Exercise (i.e. overtraining) can cause (temporary) depletion of endogenous Testosterone during the 24 - 48 hour recovery period between workouts in people who engage in Isotonic Exercise.

also apparently since im vegan I should include coconut oil in my diet as this is a precursor to build more T…... apparently this is because a vegan diet is very low in saturated fats...

just thought id share.

cheers.

I am really considering starting Herbal supplements, at least Tribulus. I am personally against taking hormones so I am just really looking for a little something to just make a few subtle changes.

I just have a few questions regarding Tribulus.
- Where is the best place to buy it? Online? Store?
- Pros and Cons that you personally have experienced taking it?
- And what about dosage? I'm 5'2 about 120 lbs, just incase that factors in.

And of course any other information is greatly appreciated.

Hi folks,

Not sure if I have posted here before but my name is Ash and Im a queer, trans, vegan punk kid from Melbourne. For various reasons I have chosen to avoid taking synthetic testosterone and have been exploring other methods of masculinisation.

This is a pretty tedious regime but below is what ive committed myself to taking for twelve months.. at two months so far im happy with the results (increased energy, sex drive and slightly darker facial hair) which is much more success than I've had over the years with other herbs including tribulus terrestris by itself, DHEA or wild yam.. my friend in SF who put me onto this regime (I found a practicioner here who would treat me and source the same herbs) has said that changes were more evident after six or seven months so at the moment its an experiment and im waiting to see what happens ..

Anyways I thought that I would say hello and share what Im currently taking (which by the way tastes fuckin disgusting):

..............................................................................................

A tincture my herbalist made up containing the following (at unknown quantities) which I take 14ml per day of:

* Vitex agnus castus
* Urtica dioca leaf
* Zingberris Officinalis
* Panax ginseng
* Serenoa Serrulata

Tribulus & Epimedium Compound Formulation (tablets x 3) which includes the following:

* Tribulus terrestris extract equivalent to dry fruit 4.5 g
* Epedimedim sagittatum extract equivalent to dry leaf 1 g
* Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) extract equivalent to dry root 1 g
* Turnera diffusa (Damiana) extract equivalent to dry leaf 500 mg
* d-alpha-Tocopheryl acid succinate (Vitamin E 50 IU) 41.3 mg
* Zinc sulfate (equivalent to elemental Zinc 10 mg) 44 mg

Polygonum (also known as Ho Shu Wu) - liquid herb formula 14ml a day which equates to 7000mg equiquilent of dried herb

..............................................................................................

Would love to hear if anyone else has tried something similar or has had success with other alternatives.

Cheers,

Ash

i have a question for you guys. i was reading the green masculinity thread and something was brought up that i hadn't really thought about. i was under the impression that when testosterone lowers your voice, it usually stays that way...but i'm not sure if herbs are any different.

does anyone have any experiences with keeping your voice when going off of herbs?
i want to know if it's an individual thing, or if losing the voice happens to nearly everyone.

I've been taking tribulus terrestris off and on for about 2 years and I've noticed some changes like I like, but my flexibility seems to decrease and my muscle seem stiffer every time I'm on it. I've started to practice yoga and increase my exercise to help with that. I'm undecided about going on T and want to stay on tribulus and add something else for more masculinizing effects (not sure what)... but I don't like the stiffness of my muscles. Any thoughts? or any suggestions for what else I can add to work with the tribulus?

Hey guys. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I've been taking a few supplements (tribulus, longjack, ginger, and avena sativa) and so far I've noticed a few of the "good" side effects. More hair growth, deeper voice, more muscle and energy. On the bad side, though, my sex drive was totally depleted. And I mean it was completely gone. The kind where you're actually trying to enjoy things and you just can't get into it? Ever? I was on them for a little over two months, and recently decided to take a break from them. Two days after going off, my sex drive completely returned. I actually started masturbating again. Amazing.

Now I don't know if the lack of drive was due to the supplements, or if it was caused by other things (stress maybe? not likely. I'm more stressed now than I was on the pills). I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this at all.

Does anyone know if it's possible to buy 20g capsuls of tribulus in the USA? If so, where?
