Decrease in testosterone

Hi Ali: Regarding the mint studies…I just saw this on Suppversity…regarding the difference between mints effects on male and female rats…..Spearmint (M. spicata): At least in women spearmint tea has been shown to increase estrogen and luteinizing hormone in the follicular phase of their menstrual cycle (Aktodgan. 2007). In a 2004 study that was conducted on male rodents, on the other hand, the daily administration of peppermint tea (M. spicata) for a period of 30days lead to significant increases in luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormone and increases in serum testosterone, yet with the serious downside of “extensive degenerative changes in the germinal epithelium and spermatogenesis arrest compared with the findings in the testicular biopsies of the control group” (Aktogan. 2003) interesting for sure!

The key to masculinity and vitality is the human growth hormone that separates the boys from the men. It plays a vital role in the creation of muscle mass and strong bones. It contributes to deep voice and even sex drive. Low testosterone in men is known as hypogonadism. As a product of a modern world made for convenience the male body does not go through nearly as much rigorous activity. The lack of daily exercise contributes to the decrease in male testosterone. It can hit as early as the mid 20s and steadily decrease each subsequent year.
