Herbal T Review
As age related testosterone loss will hit us all eventually, a growing number of boosters are being aimed at the over 30s. We’re all for it, the more the merrier we say, just as long as they get the job done. One product promising to roll back your hormone clock is Herbal T (see what they’ve done there?) from Daily Nutra.
Herbal T promises healthy T support, improved libido as well as better energy and strength. Saying is one thing though, doing is another. Let’s see if Herbal T can make any waves in a pretty crowded market.
How Does Herbal T Work?
This brand deserves a tip of the cap for listing all 800mg worth of formula in name and individual amount. Proprietary blends are still too common in boosters, but are avoided here.
As a main ingredient choice, Ashwagandha is certainly not the worst. It has a great clinical track record of cutting cortisol, the stress hormone, when dosed at the 500mg in one capsule here. Cortisol blocks the effects of T s lowering it is helpful. It’s only T boosting claim is it may help return guys with clinically low levels to normal.
Epimedum (Horny Goat Weed)
Horny Goat Weed may sound like something you have to take to gain entry to a fraternity, but it’s well worth getting past that vivid imagery, because this ingredient appears to show real promise as a natural treatment for erectile dysfunction; something which sadly becomes more of a concern as we age. HGW is thought to help in this area through inhibition of the enzyme PDE5 and increasing levels of nitric oxide in the body, strengthening blood flow. Its actual testosterone boosting credentials are pretty non-existent though.
A component found in mushrooms, cordyceps have displayed an ability to raise endurance in mice. There’s not a lot of evidence of it having a similar effect on humans however, so for the moment at least, it’s a little hard to get too excited about this inclusion.
Ginseng had us full of hope, sadly though, Herbal T has gone for the American ginseng rather than the far more useful Asian strain. As a result, while American ginseng may still offer benefits from an energy standpoint, the T boosting power will not be what it could’ve been.
Tongkat Ali (Longjack)
Another pick which the research suggests is focused on libido and erectile health. Again, this is welcome, but we’d like appreciate if this Herbal T stopped beating around the bush (no pun intended) and used some T boosters.
If this is what Herbal T is pinning hopes on then they’re in for a let down. Once considered great at boosting male hormone, it’s a flop in clinical trials, Studies have repeatedly failed to show any link to T levels. It may have some effect on libido, but that’s not something this product is short of.
Another name for Siberian ginseng, which is another name for Asian Red Ginseng. This will add to its American ginseng’s benefits and nitric oxide stimulation should also help erections.
This ingredient has been used widely in Chinese traditional medicine to promote heart health, which is always important in men of increasing age. It has also demonstrated some slight anti-inflammatory properties, but once again any contribution to the headline act (testosterone remember, we wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t) is absent.
