Herbal Supplements That Increase Testosterone And Promote Hormonal Health- Tongkat Ali
We have spoken about the benefits of Tongkat Ali in previous articles on this blog. This known and well-respected herb from south-east Asia is one of the most effective herbal supplements that increase testosterone.
It is a Very strong and potent testosterone booster and libido enhancer for both sexes. This adaptogenic herb works in conjunction with your body and stimulates it into releasing more testosterone.
The bonus is that the latest research is showing that Tongkat Ali inhibits the conversion of testosterone into estrogen as well as being a good fat burner and anti-viral.
Horny Goat Weed
Horny goat weed or Epimedium Extract is definitely a herbal supplement that could promote healthy testosterone that you should be trying due to it being a very effective solution for poor erectile health.
The name translates roughly, from Chinese to something like “man who like sex too much” known as a powerful and potential libido booster.
Although, strictly speaking not an actual testosterone booster it is more of testosterone mimicker as it actually mimics the testosterone inside the gonads and helps your body to make better use of preexisting bound testosterone.
It works by being a powerful PDE5 inhibitor and nitric oxide enhancer. Which is exactly how viagra works with the exception, viagra does not actually increase testosterone!
Very powerful libido enhancer and definitely a huge plus for helping men with poor erectile health and function.
An odd compound of naturally occurring organic minerals in their ionic form, over 85 in fact. Comes in an odd sort of waxy resinous form that can be mixed with water, coffee or taken orally by itself. Actually been proven in 90-day tests to have positive effects in numerous ways for the body by taking just a 200mg dosage daily.

This one making the list might actually surprise a few people, or raise a few eyebrows, in fact, do more than that it will raise your testosterone levels.
Royal jelly is the substance that bees give to small larvae, feeding it, and it then becomes the new queen bee when it is time to change the queen bee.
The Larvae grows to be about 60x normal size and life span in increased 40 fold. In short, it is this nutrient that turns the small larvae into the queen bee.
Royal Jelly is extremely dense and packed with nutrients, and, I’ll emphasise the AND the actual testosterone hormone, be in small amounts but the actual hormone nonetheless.
During a 90-day trial 25milligrammes of Royal jelly per day testosterone levels were increased by a respectable 20%.
It works by helping to convert DHEA and cholesterol more readily and easily into free testosterone.
Mucuna Pruriens can be considered as part of the group of herbal supplements that promote testosterone health and supports mood and well being as it contains levodopa in high quantities.
Levodopa is an amino acid that crosses the blood-brain barrier and enhances levels of dopamine, which helps to induce a natural joyful and happy sensation and rather importantly reduces the levels of the stress hormone cortisol which destroys testosterone.
Mucuna helps to maintain sexual health and healthy testosterone levels which could lead to an improved sexual and erectile health,
He Shou Wu
When is gets down to it, He Shou Wu is one of the herbal supplements that functions in a similar way to Mucuna Pruriens. They may actually be used in conjunction with each other for a far better effect.
While Mucuna Pruriens increases your levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine directly thanks to the levodopa content, he shou wu contains an active compound which blocks an enzyme that is responsible for breaking down dopamine, MonoAmine Oxide-B (MAO-B for short) enzyme.
By blocking that enzyme dopamine levels are maintained or if taken with mucuna pruriens remain at an elevated level. It has additional properties that help to increase testosterone other than the maintenance of dopamine levels and thus suppression of cortisol.
One of such properties is its rather elevated content of bioavailable zinc. Ideal for sufferers of poor erectile health and function as it also assists your nitric oxide levels and thus circulation.
This one, I have not yet personally tried as of yet but it is said to be the mega food of the mega foods. And has been included in a book the 4-hour chef by no other than Tim Ferris.

Been used in Indian herbal Ayurvedic medicine as well as Chinese herbal medicine for centuries.

Pine Pollen Tincture
Pine Pollen Tincture is a much more potent form for in powder version in terms of enhancing testosterone and could be considered potentially as a natural testosterone replacement therapy as it genuinely contains DHEA, Testosterone and two more androgens and a certain company, Lost Empire Herbs, claims that it guarantees morning wood!
