Are there any non sulfurous substances that drop malondialdehyde or raise testosterone by such significant margins that you are aware of? Are these observed effects a result of the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger. Might turmeric have similar effects?

This is a very interesting question. It seems that ginger works to raise testosterone possibly by increasing the surface distribution of the protein GLUT4, ultimately leading to what could possibly be bigger muscle mass, improved insulin sensitivity and better metabolic fitness in general. +1. I'm not aware of any other non-sulfurous foodstuffs that have similar effects. Onions might work via similar mechanisms, which would support the correlation between the ergolog you posted and the ergolog that shows onion juice tripling testosterone in rats.

You can find tons of substances which decrease malondialdehyde (sodium butyrate does not contain sulfur) and increase testosterone (parsley, fenugreek) as the above PH link and papers show, but why focus on just these two compounds? As Happy Now answered in the PH link, why not just focus on being overall healthy? and getting everything in proper balance?
