Considering that’s our #1 and #2 bestsellers, why am I stating this blasphemy?
Well, to be honest, they’re too strong for me. Let me explain the pros and cons of these supplements…
I’m coming up on my 31st birthday in a couple of weeks. Although it’s been a while since I did blood or saliva testing so I don’t know exact numbers, I feel like my testosterone and other sex hormones are running just fine.
Sadly, this wasn’t always the case. As I’ve mentioned before I believe I was born with less testosterone than most and lived with that up through puberty and my 20’s.
And I continually worked on cleaning up my diet, handling stress better, doing more effective workouts and otherwise living a masculine life.
I feel like these two herbs were useful in resetting my hormones at a new higher level.
A common question I get asked is if you’d have to use the herbs for life, just like with TRT. In my experience, the answer is no. The intelligence of the herbs (i.e. the whole array of active constituents and nutrition) appears to be able to help get things back to optimal.
Again, this is my opinion and there are no scientific studies on this particular idea.
Having my sex drive in OVERdrive is something that I only want sometimes, otherwise, too much libido can be distracting. 😉
I take them every once in a while when I feel I need a boost, but I do not take them regularly, and never together, instead of using many other herbs. I rely more on daily staples like he shou wu and shilajit. And then I’m always experimenting with others on top of that.
This is why we always talk about the pros and cons of supplements and the need to individualize your herbal program.
And that may change over time as your circumstances change too.
