Hi Ali: Regarding the mint studies…I just saw this on Suppversity…regarding the difference between mints effects on male and female rats…..Spearmint (M. spicata): At least in women spearmint tea has been shown to increase estrogen and luteinizing hormone in the follicular phase of their menstrual cycle (Aktodgan. 2007). In a 2004 study that was conducted on male rodents, on the other hand, the daily administration of peppermint tea (M. spicata) for a period of 30days lead to significant increases in luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormone and increases in serum testosterone, yet with the serious downside of “extensive degenerative changes in the germinal epithelium and spermatogenesis arrest compared with the findings in the testicular biopsies of the control group” (Aktogan. 2003) interesting for sure!
I've always had a very high sex drive and can only assume very high test levels when I was younger. Was prescribed finasteride once I turned 18 (6 years ago) and quickly noticed hairgrowth. Started blasting test and I shit you not within a few WEEKS I had lost probably a good 3 months of progress. Switched to dutasteride 1mg/day and really have no difference in sex drive or anything really, I honestly don't think dht really matters if you have x10 normal test levels anyways. If you need boners try melanotan 2, its actually miserable lol.
