Pine Pollen Tincture for Direct Androgenic Action with Androgens and More*
Pine pollen tincture benefits are slightly different from the powder. In a tincture form pine pollen’s phyto-androgens like androgens and DHEA and more bioavailable to the human body.* The alcohol has drawn them out and can deliver them straight into your bloodstream, whereas with the powder, most do not make it through the digestive tract.
Because this is more powerful hormonally pine pollen tinctures are generally only recommended for men over 30 years of age.*
The way I like to think about it is the powder is more nutritional while the tincture is more directly androgenic.*
Pine Pollen and Male Hormones
This is interesting and fairly unique in nature that this contains some of the exact same hormones as humans. These can help combat all those endocrine disrupting xeno-estrogens are our environment is full of these days, from drinking water, pesticides, plastics and more.* This includes:
These are only available in trace amounts though, so this is not a steroid and you won’t have any side effects of those drugs. Instead with all the natural co-factors and the small amounts these will work with your body for adaptogenic effects.*
In addition to the “human” hormones there are also phyto-androgens, similar hormones but different one’s then we humans have. These still have action upon the human body and endocrine system.*
Gibberellins – Structurally very similar to male hormones. These are basically plant steroids that jumpstart the first stages of germination. Spray them on growing buds and they will grow exponentially. They are found most in the buds and pollens of plants. They have been found to actually connect with androgens receptors in the human body. Basically, they can mimic male hormones in the body and stimulate androgen production.* They also appear to have a regulating action on the prostate.*
Brassinosteroids – Another essential element to plants, brassinosteroids are being used by plant growers as a highly efficient, broad-spectrum, safe plant growth regulator. Pine pollen contains many of the over 30 different kinds already identified. Two of the brassinosteroids in pine pollen are the mechanism through which the liver safely removes xenobiotic substances, such as xenoestrogens, from the body system.*

The Difference Between Powder and Tincture
As a powder, you’re getting all the nutrition that pine pollen provides. This includes many vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and other nutrients within (like resveratrol, SOD, MSM, etc.), making it, as my brother likes to call it, “Nature‘s Multivitamin”. In this form pine pollen can really be thought of as a food.
Still the powder is more modulating of the hormones.* In this form there is almost no chance it could increase your hormones to unsafe levels. It is fine to take every single day for years if you wanted. No cycling is needed. It is safe for women and children.
Concentrating and Delivering Phyto-Androgens
On the other hand, when you tincture pine pollen, the alcohol draws out the phyto-androgens, concentrating them. Other components will come along too, but not everything that is found in the powder.
By squirting the alcohol tincture in your mouth, the hormones can immediately enter your bloodstream.* No digestive tract to get past, thus they’re available right away in your system.
With the tincture it is better to think of this as boosting your hormones.* And on that note, this could likely be overdone. Its still nothing like shooting up with steroids, but if a person downed a bottle of tincture it would probably have some side effects.
For this reason, pine pollen tinctures are generally only recommended for men over the age of 30. Anyone younger than that should be just fine hormonally although this day and age with all the environmental pollutants, I can’t say that’s necessarily the case. Anyone under 20 definitely should avoid them. That means no children at all.
Although they’re not generally recommended for women, a few women have used pine pollen tinctures and reported great benefit. You’ll have to make the choice for yourself. Definitely not for pregnant or lactating mothers.
Also, some people are sensitive to alcohol. A way to get around this, while still getting the tincture benefits, is to squirt it into a very hot liquid. The alcohol has a lower boiling point than water so it will evaporate while leaving behind the components.
The tincture boosts hormones.* The powder modulates them.* Many people like to take both and they seem to reap even more benefit.*
Pine Pollen Tincture Details
The recommended pine pollen tincture dosage is 1 dropperful twice daily cycled 5 days on 2 days off.
In addition, it is best to cycle pine pollen tincture. Some people like to take it four or five days a week while taking a break the rest. Others will consume a whole bottle, taking it daily, and then give it a week or two off. Or just a random approach, taking it every once in awhile. Any of these options and many others are fine. It’s just not something you want to be on forever.
