“Treatment with fresh onion juice has been reported to promote testosterone production…”
As I have decided against T for various personal reasons, I have been reading up on potential testosterone-boosting herbs and foods.
I had some juvenile fun reading about common names of herbs like Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium) and Long Jack (Tongkat Ali). Oh, come on! Admit you get those mental images too!
Now doesn’t ginseng just look to be able to do the trick?!
Then my eye caught the sentence, “Eat a lot of high curvaceous vegetables.” Since I’m a big fan of curvaceous, especially with reference to women, I read on. The writer was referring to broccoli. Oh, well…
One of the interesting snippets of information I came across, was that in a rat study, researchers found that rats fed with onion juice tripled their testosterone levels. (I can dig out the paper if you really insist! 🙂 ).
Now I am a humongous rat, so I was wondering just how much onion juice I would have to consume daily to have some kind of effect. Glasses? Liters? Lakes full?
And what effect would it have on my body should I consume huge amounts of vegetables generating flatus and fetid body odour, like onion, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, garlic and cabbage, which are all T-boosters? Would I blow up like the Hindenburg, pungent like a garbage tip? And we all know of it’s disastrous end… (You don’t? Check out our good pal Wikipedia. I sometimes forget I’m a Baby Boomer!).
The faceless “They” say, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” An onion a day, keeps everybody away?
At least it will help hair growth and the garlic will keep the ghosts at bay…
Should I or shouldn’t I?
Any of you guys using herbal T supplements?
