I’m almost done talking about supplements, but today comes a somewhat mysterious one that many men are eager to try (indeed, many guys are eager for me to talk about it…), and that is Testosterone. It’s called testicular stimulation. Before we talk about testosterone, let’s briefly talk about testosterone, which is a kind of male hormone that is secreted by both men and women (just how much), and it affects our growth and development and protein synthesis.
Testosterone boosting, to be more specific, is “endogenous” (a disease or substance produced or caused by internal factors in the human body), which is a different concept from the direct use of exogenous hormones, which we produce ourselves, and the use of testosterone boosting supplements to increase our ability to produce our own, so on the whole the concept is safe and scientific, but do they really do it?
Mainstream testosterone stimulating products will use the main ingredients are Tribulus Terrestris Saponin, Zinc Magnesium, Glutamate, Fenugreek Extract, ZMA, DAA and so on. There is not enough evidence to prove that they are stable and effective in promoting testosterone secretion, but these products will add many other ingredients as usual, such as various plant extracts, and some will simply add caffeine and BCAA for direct use.
It’s like what I said before about fat loss supplements, the more stimulants you have, the harder it is to determine whether it’s actually risky for you to use, and of course the magic may indeed happen to make it a power-giving supplement as advertised. For example, it can build muscle, improve athletic performance, and even be anti-aging, improve sexual function, and make you bigger and stronger. No joke, if you search for testicular stimulation products online, these are the keywords you’ll see that simply make you want to have a dozen right now.
However, according to the current broader knowledge, testosterone levels are more individual (there is really not much that can be done in the future), although there will be short-term fluctuations, but due to its own strong regulatory ability, the overall level is still relatively stable within a certain range. For example, exercise may cause an increase in blood testosterone, but when it slowly rises to a certain peak and you continue to exercise, it may drop to a level lower than the pre-exercise level, but it will slowly rise again after the exercise is over.
Because of this, it is difficult to find a natural and effective product that can give you a stable and long-term increase in testosterone levels without the negative consequences, such as affecting your ability to produce and regulate testosterone. Also, a rise in testosterone doesn’t necessarily lead to muscle growth, it’s a very complex process and one shouldn’t be so superstitious with hormone myths.
It’s also true that many people will be concerned about help outside of the gym, although it’s true that some people may feel the urge to have sex immediately after using a testosterone product such as, for example, Tribulus Terrestris Saponin (which can often be achieved by watching AV…). But this subjective feeling in isolated instances obviously cannot be used to prove their effectiveness. And even if it does increase libido, it doesn’t mean that it’s an increase in sexual performance, and it can’t be tied to a boost in testosterone. Because it’s a complex issue where your mood, stress, fatigue, diet and mental state all play a role. ,.
You really don’t need to worry too much about your testosterone levels, as men are best when they are confident (and have a vested interest in health products).
If you really feel worried about this, then go to the hospital and get yourself checked out, it’s much more reliable than simply taking a superstitious supplement and exercising.
