Herbs and Vitamins can Increase Testosterone

Herbs and Vitamins can Increase Testosterone
(NaturalNews) Testosterone decreases as we age, but numerous herbs and nutrients can help increase the blood levels of this hormone. Low testosterone can increase the risk of heart problems as well as depression, osteoporosis, and dementia. Reduced testosterone causes a condition known as andropause that develops with aging. Testosterone is an anabolic steroid and research on synthetic hormone replacement has been inconclusive.

The UCLA School of Medicine studied the plant MUIRA PUAMA and found it had the ability to increase testosterone production in men. South American shaman and healers have used this plant from the Brazilian rainforest for generations. Known as "potency wood" it has been used as an aphrodisiac as well.
