Anabolic Herbs: The Pine Pollen Testosterone Connection
The pine pollen, testosterone connection could be a game changer for a lot of men…
I say “could be” because if you’re not taking pine pollen with a proper diet then you probably won’t see any results…
After all, it’s not steroids or anything like that…
(Although I’d argue it is the “anabolic steroids” of plants)
However, pine pollen is packed with anabolic benefits no man should ignore.
In fact, it’s a helpful ingredient for boosting testosterone levels, naturally… How?
Because pine pollen has actual testosterone in it.
That’s right. Eating pine pollen (or drinking it) is like consuming testosterone…
Because according to a publication in the US National Library of Medicine, one variety of pine pollen, Pinus Sylverstis contains 80 ng/g of testosterone, 110 ng/g of epitestosterone, and 590 ng/g androstenedione.
How about that for a powerful, all-natural androgen?
To give you an example of how potent pine pollen can be, get this…
Just one gram of pine pollen contains 80 nanograms of testosterone.
Meaning, consuming 100 grams of pine pollen would give you 8,000 ng of testosterone.
Which is kind of a BIG deal.
Because this would equal to an extra 250 – 1,000 ng of unbound testosterone in an average man.
Here’s another reason the pine pollen testosterone connection is powerful for men looking to naturally increase their t-levels…
The testosterone in pine pollen isn’t bound to SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) or albumin… Meaning, it’s free testosterone.
Free testosterone is all that matters because free testosterone is actually used in your body. The more free testosterone you have, the more anabolic benefits you enjoy…
Like more muscle and strength, increasing energy levels, and having a larger sex-drive and more vigor between the sheets.
Now, with that said… supplementing with pine pollen is a waste of time if you don’t follow a healthy eating protocol.
Basically, it’s not some magic herb that’s going to override a poor diet, sedentary lifestyle and catabolic sleeping habits…
And truth be told…
No supplement will work if you’re not eating, sleeping, and training.
However, if you’ve got those in order and you’re looking for an anabolic edge that’s all natural and carries no side-effects to be of concern… Pine Pollen is the way to go.
Here are some of the other health benefits of pine pollen.
Androgen and estrogen balance (important if you suffer from gynecomastia)
Strengthens the immune system
Protects the cardiovascular system
Improves erectile function
Here are two of my favorite ways to take pine pollen…
I call this first one my “get it up every time” double-strength libido cocktail…
The male-enhancement industry does NOT want you to find this out…
Combine the following ingredients into a smoothie:
8 oz. pomegranate juice
1 serving Pine Pollen Powder
1 frozen medium banana
1 tbsp. raw honey
4 oz. milk (you can use almond milk as well)
Blend up and enjoy!
Or you can go the simple route and take a couple drops of a pine pollen tincture.
Pretty simple, right?
Now, this next one isn’t my favorite way to consume pine pollen, simply because I don’t drink alcohol.
However, if you like a strong drink every now and again, here’s a do-it-yourself pine pollen testosterone tincture you can make from home.
1. Get a solid and dark glass jar which can be tightly sealed.
2. Get yourself some pine pollen powder.
3. Have strong alcohol, like vodka on hand. (this works as a carrier agent)
4. Get yourself some small tincture bottles with dropper caps.
5. Put the pine pollen into the glass jar and fill it with alcohol. 50% of the jar should be filled with pine pollen and the other 50% with a strong alcohol.
6. Seal the jar tightly to prevent air from getting inside.
7. Let the pine pollen sit in the jar for 2-3 weeks so the active ingredients from the pine pollen can seep into the alcohol.
8. After the 2-3 weeks, your pine pollen testosterone tincture is now ready to be strained into your small dropper bottles.
9. Consume a few drops morning and night.
Now, this is clearly not a method for the impatient (like myself)…
However, if you want to put some tender love and care into your home pine pollen testosterone remedy, go for it.
Overall, pine pollen is a rising in popularity as a powerful anabolic herb to help you increase your testosterone levels.
Is it for you?
Well, that’s up to you… but what guy doesn’t like the idea of eating more testosterone (literally)…
