If you don;t mind i will probably use it as a testimonial in my tongkat ali extract article which I am not sure if you checked out. But something tells me you may be interested in it haha. I don’t know much about the medicinal tongkat ali you speak of, but I have a supplier from a Sumatra jungle in indonesia, who’s product I know is 100% legit.

I was reading in the university health news daily website that a study performed by researchers at the University of Texas . Anderson Cancer Center found that men with prostate cancer who ate 3 tablespoons of milled or ground flax seeds each day had decreased prostate cancer cell proliferation compared to similar men who did not eat flax seeds. According to the American Cancer Society, men who supplement their diets with flax seed have lower PSA levels and slower growth of benign as well as cancerous prostate cells.

All steroid hormones are derived from cholesterol. Contrary to popular belief, “steroid hormone” does not equate with “anabolic hormone”. Not only testosterone but estrogen and progesterone are steroid hormones derived from cholesterol. And most cholesterol in your body is produced by your liver, not from your diet. I know of no controlled studies showing that eating steaks increases testosterone levels. OTOH dietary cholesterol is no longer considered to be the great evil it used to be seen as, so go ahead and eat whole eggs if you like them. The theory that eating red meat makes you more of a man is promoted by people who just happen to like red meat. (There’s nothing wrong with liking red meat, just don’t pretend it has magical powers that it doesn’t have.)
