Testosterone – Steroids Profile


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

by Bill Roberts Testosterone, as the natural product drug and one of the most widely used anabolic steroids, is the most convenient choice for a reference drug to which all others will be compared. And while it is entirely possible to construct maximally-effective steroid cycles without employing testosterone, most do not do this, but instead use testosterone as their foundation. Either approach can be entirely sound. As a bodybuilding drug, testosterone is almost always used as an injectable ester, due to poor oral bioavailability and the impracticality of high dose transdermal or sublingual delivery. Testosterone also is provided as an injectable suspension. Discussion here is in reference to these injectable preparations. Pharmacologically, testosterone acts both via the androgen receptor and via other means. In practice, it is found to combine synergistically both with those anabolic steroids categorized as Class I and those categorized as Class II, and therefore is described as having mixed activity. Particular properties of testosterone that are of note include that it converts enzymatically both to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and to estradiol (the most important of the estrogens.) While with normal levels of testosterone and normal enzyme activity these conversions are in fact desirable, with supraphysiological testosterone levels … Read more »

High and Low Testosterone Levels in Men MedicineNet


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on January 5th, 2018

Testosterone is considered to be the "male hormone" that's produced in men by the testes. Although women's ovaries produce some testosterone, the hormone is produced in much higher concentrations in men and it is responsible for many of the secondary sex characteristics seen in men such as a deeper voice and hair on the chest, in addition to contributing to a healthy libido, building muscle mass, and maintaining energy levels. The problems associated with high testosterone levels are infrequent and rare in middle-aged and elderly men who are not receiving testosterone or other steroid treatments. When the testosterone level becomes out of balance, it usually becomes too low rather than too elevated. In general, the normal range in males is about 270 to 1070 ng/dL with an average level of 679 ng/dL. A normal male testosterone level peaks at about age 20, and then it slowly declines. Testosterone levels above or below the normal range are considered by many to be out of balance. Moreover, some researchers suggest that the healthiest men have testosterone levels between 400 - 600 ng/dL. Men who have a testosterone level that is higher than average may experience both benefits and drawbacks. Examples of benefits, … Read more »

Testosterone Transdermal Patch: MedlinePlus Drug Information


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on January 5th, 2018

Transdermal testosterone comes as a patch to apply to the skin. It is usually applied each night between 8:00 p.m. and midnight and left in place for 24 hours. Apply testosterone patches at around the same time every evening. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use testosterone patch(es) exactly as directed. Do not apply more or fewer patches or apply the patches more often than prescribed by your doctor. Choose a spot on your back, stomach, thighs, or upper arms to apply your patch(es). Be sure that the spot you have chosen is not oily, hairy, likely to perspire heavily, over a bone such as a shoulder or hip, or likely to be under pressure from sitting or sleeping. Do not apply the patch(es) to the scrotum or to a skin area with open sores, wounds, or irritation. Also be sure that the patch will stay flat against the skin and will not be pulled, folded, or stretched during normal activity. Choose a different spot each night and wait at least 7 days before applying another patch to a spot you have already used. … Read more »

Testosterone Booster – Scientific Review on Usage, Dosage …


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on January 5th, 2018

For a list of supplements to take to boost testosterone, see the increasing testosterone supplement stack. Testosterone boosters are a class of herbal or otherwise legal supplements that aim to increase levels of Testosterone in the body. This page discusses all compounds either marketed as or investigated for their usage as testosterone boosters or pro-androgenic compounds. For this reason, entries below may not actually boost testosterone. Many of the compounds below do indeed boost testosterone levels in some studies, but others either require hypogonadism or are just aphrodisiacs. Note on Aromatase Inhibitors A novel mechanism of increasing testosterone in men is through inhibiting the aromatase enzyme (also known as CYP1A1/2). This enzyme serves many purposes, one of which is to convert androgens (like testosterone) to estrogens. For more, see: anti-estrogen/aromatase inhibitors. Inhibiting the enzyme itself can increase testosterone and lower estrogen. Aromatase inhibitors can be useful as single supplements to take in order to switch the body to a more androgenic state. Increasing testosterone by other means, such as hypothalamic stimulation (see: D-Aspartic Acid and possibly Anacyclus pyrethrum), can yield more testosterone independent of this enzyme, and the enzyme's activity may be increased to compensate. In this scenario, supplementation with … Read more »

Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

Testosterone is a hormone which is responsible for many of the physical characteristics specific to adult males.It plays a key role in reproduction and the maintenance of bone and muscle strength. Testo (brand name for testosterone formulations); 4-androsten-17-ol-3-one. Testosterone is produced by the gonads (by the Leydig cells in testes in men and by the ovaries in women), although small quantities are also produced by the adrenal glands in both sexes.It is an androgen, meaning that it stimulates the development of male characteristics. Present in much greater levels in men than women, testosterone initiates the development of the male internal and external reproductive organs during foetal development and is essential for the production of sperm in adult life.This hormone also signals the body to make new blood cells, ensures that muscles and bones stay strong during and after puberty and enhances libido both in men and women.Testosterone is linked to many of the changes seen in boys during puberty (including an increase in height, body and pubic hair growth, enlargement of the penis, testes and prostate gland and changes in sexual and aggressive behaviour).It also regulates the secretion of luteinising hormone and follicle stimulating hormone.To effect these changes, testosterone is … Read more »

9775b38c6f8aa95668c5ba25f8421560 Essiac Tea, or Tea of Life, is a popular beverage used in alternative cancer treatment. During the last few decades, it has gained popularity among cancer patients as well as the healthy population trying to ward off cancer. Essiac Tea is also called Herbal Essence and Vitalitea, whereas Flor Essence is a more advanced form of Essiac. Even so, no clinical trial has ever succeeded in confirming the effectiveness of cancer treatment through Essiac Tea, at least in case of animal trials. The history of Essiac Tea runs back to 1922, although its recipe or formula is much older. The herbal formula was revealed to a Canadian nurse named Rene Caisse in Ontario, by a patient who claimed to have recovered from breast cancer by an Indian herbal tea. He had obtained it from an Ojibwa medicine man. Caisse used the recipe to treat her aunt who was suffering from stomach cancer. Later on, she started offering this secret formula through her own clinic, as a tea and as an injection. In fact, Essiac is Cassie spelled backwards. In 1977 the recipe was handed over to a manufacturer in Toronto. Essiac Tea includes Indian rhubarb root, slippery elm inner … Read more »

Normal Testosterone Levels – Urology – MedHelp


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

You guys know there is a much better way to increase test levels than HRT, right?It's called nutrition and lifestyle. Increase intake of zinc and selenium.Try eating oysters a couple of times a week, and 3-4 Brazil nuts, morning and night.Combine this with plenty of fatty foods (cholesterol won't peak.Cholesterol levels are more a function of insulin sensitivity/resistance than dietary cholesterol.)Your body will need the cholesterol in fatty foods in order to manufacture hormones, including testosterone. Of course, my evidence is purely anecdotal, but in three months, eating 6-8 Brazil nuts per day, with supplemental zinc, and a 5-10 minute, high-intensity, full body resistance training session (olympic lifting; multi-joint movements, and a reasonably hight weight) 3 days a week, along with consumption of a LARGE amount of fatty, cholesterol-laden foods, like bacon, milk, and a LOT of red meat, I lowered my LDL cholesterol levels by almost 40 points, increased testosterone levels from 233 to 645, lost 20 lbs of fat, and gained 20 lbs of muscle. Sleep is another big part of the equation.Sleep deprivation causes elevated cortisol levels, which exist in inverse proportion to testosterone levels.Cortisol also, by the way, is part of the mechanism for downregulation of … Read more »

Tribulus Terrestris Review Does It Raise Testosterone or …


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 25th, 2018

I like to surf around at various health and fitness websites because it not only lets me help answer peoples questions but it also allows me get an idea of what people are curious about. Over the last several months Ive been noticing online chatter about Tribulus terrestris as a testosterone booster. I was a little surprised because tribulus terrestris was big in the early 1900s and then fell out of favor when people realized it didnt work. But maybe things have changed since I last reviewed the research so let me now take a fresh look at the tribulus terrestris research and see if there is anything new going on. Notice the amounts of tribulus used in the studies below. Im telling you the amounts so you can compare it to what is in your tribulus supplement. After reading this, you may want to check out what happened when I took tribulus for a few weeks. Also see my review of the HGH supplement, SeroVital. Tribulus or tribulus terrestris (also called puncture vine), is a plant that is found throughout the world. The term puncture vine stems from rumors that the plants thorns are able to puncture bicycle tires. … Read more »
