Maintaining our manliness can be a challenge, as we get older because our testosterone levels decrease as the years pile up. Lower testosterone levels have very detrimental effects to our health, such as osteoporosis, depression, and an increased likelihood of heart ailments.
Fortunately, we can take some herbs that increase testosterone levels instead of having to buy expensive medicines for the condition.
Here are some herbs which medical studies have confirmed to be quite effective in boosting testosterone:
Ginseng. It’s no coincidence that ginseng is one of the most popular herbal supplements for men today. It boosts virility and sexual stamina, and studies show that testosterone levels are increased through regular use.
Muira Puama. This herb has long been used in South American folk medicine, and in Brazil it is known as “potency wood” because of its supposed aphrodisiac properties. Studies conducted by the UCLA School of Medicine have confirmed that it does increase testosterone levels.
Puncture Vine. Also known as tribulus terrestris, this herb has thousands of years of folk medicine history behind it. While it originated in Asia, it became more popular in the West when athletes (especially from Bulgaria) started to consume it as part of their athletic preparations. Studies revealed that it can boost testosterone levels by as much as 50%, and the improvements start appearing after just a few days of use.
Epimedium. It’s also called by a funnier name (horny goat weed), but there’s nothing funny about how it boosts testosterone levels. It also dilates blood vessels, which enables the testosterone to spread throughout the system.
