The History, Myths and Misconceptions of Testosterone

Posted by Professor Anna Gray, Updated on May 19th, 2020

testosterone myths history misconceptions 235x300The late 1800s was a completely different world than what we live in today: deodorant and toilet paper were just invented; chamber pots were the norm; people rubbed mercury on their skin for health benefits; Sherlock Holmes was shooting up on cocaine...and we had Dr. Charles-Edouard Brown-Sequard who was injecting his “liquide testiculaire,” composed of water, testicular vein blood, semen and juices extracted from crushed testicles of a dog or guinea pig.” This lovely concoction was recommended to others to inject to “feel like a new man.” And this “elixir of life” was presented at the Societe de Biologie in Paris. Yikes. Dr. Brown-Sequard was 72 years old and declared that his tincture gave him vitality and made him feel like new. His brain was rejuvenated. His presentation must have proved convincing because it later was estimated that around 12,000 scientists were also injecting themselves this concoction. Thus, the study of testosterone started out rather oddly. The Beginning of Testosterone Research However, Dr. Brown-Sequard was on to something. The idea that there must be some sort of “substance” produced in the testicles and blood that could be influential on men's brains and their energy levels as well as benefitting our … Read more »

Like its cousins, Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis), Vardenafil is what is known as a PDE5 Inhibitor. PDE5 inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis by encouraging the relaxation of muscles within the organ which restrict blood flow, which leads to an erection. What Causes an Erection? To put it simply, an erection occurs when blood flow is encouraged to the penis, and blood outflow is restricted, producing a ballooning effect that leads directly to an erection. Blood vessels leading to the penis, in the Corpus Cavernosum, dilate, which leads blood to enter the penis more quickly, and veins that draw blood away from the penis undergo vasoconstriction.

What Causes Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Published on May 16th, 2020

dark circles under mans eyesIt is often claimed that periorbital dark circles are caused by tiredness or working too hard or even just staying up late. While this can be true, the truth is that your genes play a considerable role here. So what exactly is happening when you get dark circles under or around your eyes? Simply put, periorbital dark circles are a result of the thin layer of skin below your eyes, showing the blood vessels and the blood they contain more clearly than anywhere else on your body. (For reference, this skin around your eyelids, called periorbital skin, is on average about 0.5 mm thick compared to an average of about 2 mm thick on most of the rest of your body.) Now, as you may or may not already know, the reason veins often look blue isn't that the blood inside them is blue; it's because your skin/subcutaneous tissue only lets blue/violet wavelengths of light pass through it. As a result, only blue light is reflected, and the veins look, well, bluish. (Veins often won't appear blue if a person has darker or lighter skin. Instead, the veins tend to appear green or brown. On the other hand, people with … Read more »

The Secret to Guys Sex Appeal: Low Stress, High Testosterone, Strong Immunity

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on May 8th, 2020

make body fit testosteroneWashboard abs and a chiseled jaw are a draw, but a recent study suggests it may be a man’s healthy immune system that really turns women on. That makes sense, since a strong immune system signifies a healthy guy — one who’s likely to survive long enough to pass his rugged genes to the next generation. But the more surprising thing is that women can apparently spot good immunity by looking at a guy’s face. The critical factor may be testosterone, the male hormone that has been associated with a man’s hardy, good looks. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, testosterone levels are not only linked with facial attractiveness but also with a strong immune system response.
