Radix Astragalus and testosterone

Answered on August 19, 2014

My question is: does radix astragalus INCREASE or DECREASE testosterone? Personal experiments suggest the latter(increased deposition of BF and +gyno) but I may have misdiagnosed. Please advise whether one should load up on this interesting chinese root/herb.

The shiping container will be replaced with a trailer(more homely for the present not to mention MOBILE). I prefer not to put down roots but to have the ability to maneuver. Futureboy: whither the future? It is NOW. Whence? it is HERE. Transhumanismus!

Perfect, thanks quilt. What is your website by the way? Should I put a limit on the radix-astragalus-testosterone-boosting-plant?

You're awesome Personman. I mean that with all sincerity. How's the shipping container going? Have you seen this? zerocabin.com

Yeah, I'd stick to having an L.Ac help you when you want to experiment with herbs. You'll find the solution faster :) and they very compassionate, much more so than MDs.

I had heard rumor that it was a testosterone booster and thought it might be useful...

Where you taking this for digestive issues? Diarrhea? or edema? A little context would be helpful.

let's assume that you are using the very best extract of astragalus from say, dragon herbs or something. then lets assume that you are using the correct and ample dosage for your individual bodyweight, etc.

from that point, astragalus is a top adaptogen, which means its innate natural intelligence brings things into balance. balance for nature might mean increased bodyfat for you because you are "too yang" and the root says, "oh hey, this guy is too hot, too aggressive, etc, let's cool him down so he can experience a more balanced life".

It increases it.....and limits shortening of telomere length. Testosterone increases production of HDL particles in the liver. This up regulation increases our ability to filter endotoxin/environmental toxins that got past the gut border, the Galt, and into the portal circulation. When testosterone is low it's correlated with sarcopenia and heart failure and cardiac CAD. This causes more leakiness at the first cytochrome of the electron chain transport in the mitochondria. This leakiness is what drives mitochondria biogenesis but also that affects telomerase activity......and hence affects telomere shortening.

Hope this helps person man!
