There are supplements out there that promise to increase your libido while also upping your testosterone. There are over the counter testosterone supplements and prescription supplements. There are supplements that market themselves as T-boosters, while also touting themselves as an aphrodisiac. And then there are companies that claim to have developed a testosterone pill that contains the triumvirate of male-enhancing properties: T-boosting, libido-enhancing, and even fertility-increasing. These supplement makers sometimes throw in an additional claim of muscle gain as well.
Hi, I have mild cardiovascular disease but am only in my mid-fifties. I am very slim, extremely fit, vegan, with a great HDL and triglycerides profile and fabulous HDL/LDL ratio (so clearly my problem is not dietary) but have high LDL cholesterols for familial/genetic reasons as well as high BP. Doctors have tried me with statins (just 8 weeks’ use caused muscle damage and inflammation as well as abnormal liver function tests) and I cannot take ezetimibe (ezetrol) to lower my LDLs as it causes tingling in my extremities and severe depression (suicidal ideation.) I have some pueraria mirifica, bought originally for breast enhancement and daren’t use it, in case it makes my atherosclerotic plaques worse, because my GP said I can’t take HRT owing to my existing cardiovascular plaques. I’ve heard that PM improves your lipids profile, though (and in my case could resolve some of the breast and skin looseness problems I’m having post-menopause) and wondered if it might be safe to take in patients with existing atherosclerosis whereas conventional HRT is not. Does anyone in a similar position or know anything about this?
The second theory is similar and is known as "evolutionary neuroandrogenic (ENA) theory of male aggression".   Testosterone and other androgens have evolved to masculinize a brain in order to be competitive even to the point of risking harm to the person and others. By doing so, individuals with masculinized brains as a result of pre-natal and adult life testosterone and androgens enhance their resource acquiring abilities in order to survive, attract and copulate with mates as much as possible.  The masculinization of the brain is not just mediated by testosterone levels at the adult stage, but also testosterone exposure in the womb as a fetus. Higher pre-natal testosterone indicated by a low digit ratio as well as adult testosterone levels increased risk of fouls or aggression among male players in a soccer game.  Studies have also found higher pre-natal testosterone or lower digit ratio to be correlated with higher aggression in males.
