ANABOLIC STEROIDS

Prolonged use of anabolic steroids severely damages the liver which is responsible for metabolizing testosterone. Testosterone that is formed in the testes can only be used by the body's receptors after it is metabolized by the liver. Consequently as the liver disintegrates so does the libido. It has been reported in FDA Drug Bulletin (October 1987) that in males, some of the additional side effects of anabolic steroid use includes: enlarged prostate, breast enlargement and testicular atrophy with subsequent sterility or significantly decreased sperm count.   Back to Topics

STEROIDAL SAPONINS

Steroidal saponins are anabolic steroid precursors that the body can use to manufacture for itself the desired growth hormones to build itself naturally and healthy. These plant (steroid precursor) constituents are not actively anabolic themselves, they are building blocks that the body can use to build its own anabolic steroids. These plant steroid precursors will not push the body b eyond its normal limits. Plants that provide natural anabolic steroidal precursors are Wild Yam, Sasparilla, Licorice, Damiana, Yucca and Saw Palmetto. Saw Palmetto is actually more of a sexual organ tonic so it is used more to support male testosterone production. Ginseng also has the steroidal saponins, it is quite epwensive, and the steroidal saponins in the less expensive Wild Yam and Sasparilla have a closer chemical construction to the anabolic steroids. each of these plants can be taken individually or in combination, as teas or tinctures. Take 1 cup of tea or 15 - 25 drops of tincture in the morning and evening.   Back to Topics

YOHIMBE

Yes, Yohimbe can serve as a sexual aid for men suffering with poor sexual response and/or impotence. Yohimbe is a West African stimulating aphrodisiac, whose actions have a direct effect on the sexual centers of the spinal cord increasing tonicity, possibly stimulating male potency. It is proven to cause penile erection giving relief of impaired sexual function, also giving increased sexual appetite. Impotence or functional origin is directly influenced by it. Yohimbe is a mild toxic plant and should not be used unr eservedly until science can reveal more about it. No evidence shows it to be anabolic, merely stimulating. It is frequently adulterated in commercial products, wit h some other plant used in its place.   Back to Topics
