Ingredient Overview

Astragalus Root (Astragalus membranaceus) has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. It was often combined with other herbs to strengthen the body against disease. Rich in antioxidants and polysaccharides Astragalus is an adaptogenic herb, meaning it is thought to help protect the body against various stresses, including physical, mental, or emotional stress. Recent research in China suggests that astragalus’ antioxidant properties may help people with heart disease, helping to alleviate symptoms and improving heart function.1 It appears that Astragalus has certain properties that assists in the metabolism of Estradiol, to safer estrogen forms. This helps to magnify the benefits of having more bio available testosterone released by this formula. At low-to-moderate doses, Astragalus has few side effects. However, it does interact with a number of other herbs and prescription medications. Astragalus may also be a mild diuretic, meaning it helps the body get rid of excess fluid.

Avena Sativa (Oat Straw) and Nettle. European research reveals that an extract of nettle root (Urtica dioica) increases the availability of free-form testosterone. A study which combined nettle root with oat straw extract (Avena sativa) showed that testosterone levels of men and women participating in the experiment increased by an average of 105 percent. Numerous studies confirm that this combination also leads to an increase of aerobic power and muscle strength. In an unpublished study, the formulator of this product TestroVida Pro was commissioned to do a study on men and women to determine why the use of concentrated Avena Sativa with Nettles increased libido. The before after results of measuring free testosterone in men and women increased significantly while the reports of libido enhancement occurred within ten days.

Catuaba is the most famous of all Brazilian aphrodisiac plants. In Brazilian herbal medicine today, catuaba is considered a central nervous system stimulant with aphrodisiac properties. The name catuaba (a Guarani word that means "what gives strength to the Indian") is used for the infusions of the bark of a number of trees native to Brazil. The most widely used barks are derived from the trees Trichilia catigua and Erythroxylum vacciniifolium. A bark decoction is commonly used for sexual impotency, agitation, nervousness, nerve pain and weakness, poor memory or forgetfulness, and sexual weakness. In European herbal medicine catuaba is considered an aphrodisiac and a brain and nerve stimulant. A bark tea is used for sexual weakness, impotence, nervous debility, and exhaustion. Herbalists and health practitioners in the United States use catuaba in much the same way: as a tonic for genital function, as a central nervous system stimulant, for sexual impotence, general exhaustion and fatigue, insomnia related to hypertension, agitation, and poor memory. According to Michael van Straten, noted British author and researcher of medicinal plants, catuaba is beneficial to men and women as an aphrodisiac, but "it is in the area of male impotence that the most striking results have been reported" and "there is no evidence of side effects, even after long-term use."

The chemical constituents found in catuaba include alkaloids, tannins, aromatic oils and fatty resins, phytosterols, cyclolignans, sequiterpenes, and flavonoids. A mixture of flavalignans, including cinchonain (also found in quinine bark), was isolated from the bark of Trichilia catigua and reported to have antibacterial and anticancerous properties.

Rhodiola Crenulata is a Tibetan herb discovered to have highly useful and beneficial properties. Rhodiola crenulata may enhance working capacity and endurance, enhance memory and concentration, enhance cardiac and cardiovascular function, provide antioxidant effects, protect against oxidation, modulate testosterone and estradiol levels, modulate sleep, and enhance sexual ability. There is a patent filed with the US patent office regarding Rhodiola’s affect on testosterone.  Subjects taking 2 grams of rhodiola crenulata for a month experienced a 76% increase in testosterone. The particular extract used in this experiment was 2% salidroside (active ingredient)

Cordyceps Sinensis an Ophiocordyceps speciesreferred to fondly as “winter worm, summer grass” is a medicinal mushroom highly prized by practitioners of Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine and traditional Folk medicines, in which it is used as an aphrodisiac and as a treatment for a variety of ailments from fatigue to cancer. Recent research however seems to indicate a variety of beneficial effects in animal testing, including increased physical endurance through heightened ATP production in rats.[4]In Chinese medicine it is regarded as having an excellent balance of yin and yang as it is both animal and vegetable. Assays have found that Ophiocordyceps species produce many pharmacologically active substances, many of which are now cultivated on an industrial scale for their medicinal value.

A March 2013 study on Cordyceps Sinensis documented its anti-inflammatory properties.[20] Scientists were able to show Cordyceps Sinensis' ability to suppress interleukin-1b and interleukin-18 secretion by inhibiting both canonical and non-canonical inflammasomes. Inflammasomes have long been associated with auto-inflammatory diseases, to include gout.

Long Jack fruit extract 200:1 is an extract from the tongkat ali plant (Eurycoma longifolia) grown in Indonesia, Malaysia, and other Southeast Asian countries. The plant has been used traditionally by local cultures, and has demonstrated a link to antibacterial, cytotoxic, aphrodisiacal, and antimalarial effects.[1] While the direct mechanisms are not entirely understood, Longjack appears to protect male genitalia from the deleterious effects of free estrogen in the body, at least in animal studies.[1]Estrogen in the male body can initiate apoptosis (cell death) in male genitalia; this could lead to reductions in testosterone output, especially in men with higher than normal estrogen levels.[1]That being said, Longjack appears to improve male testicular function even without the presence of high estrogen levels.[1] In animal studies, Longjack improved functions related to high testosterone levels, like the creation of sperm.[1]In fact, Longjack was able to counteract the effects of estrogen injection in that same study, and was able to increase sperm generation in human males with fertility related to an unknown cause.[1][2] This plant extract also has proven an effective stimulator of sexual activity in animal studies, and continues to be used for that purpose by people today.[1] Due to Longjack's reported ability to increase testicular function, researchers have proposed that it might improve testosterone functioning in men.[1]This boost in testosterone could be key in completing a supplement regimen for men.

Tribulus Terrestris Fruit Powder (also known as puncture vine) has been used for years by numerous European Olympic athletes; this herb has demonstrated its effectiveness in extensive clinical research. One particular study has shown that free-form testosterone (responsible for increased muscle and strength) levels in healthy men could be increased by 30 per cent or more, within just five days. Puncture vine seems to enhance testosterone levels by stimulating hormones that help "turn on" natural testosterone production. Recent scientific research shows that hawthorn berry extract can dramatically increase the effects of puncture vine.

Asian Ginseng (Panax Ginseng) is often referred to as a general well-being medication, because it affects many different systems of the body.  Panax ginseng contains many active substances. The substances thought to be most important are called ginsenosides or panaxosides. Do not confuse Panax ginseng with American ginseng, Siberian ginseng, or Panax pseudoginseng.  Panax ginseng is used for improving thinking, concentration, memory and work efficiency, physical stamina, and athletic endurance. Some people use Panax ginseng to help them cope with stress and as a general “adaptogenic” tonic for improving well-being. Ginseng has been used as a medicine for over two thousand years.

In Western medicine, Panax ginseng is used as a stimulant to make people more active. But, in contrast, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Panax ginseng is used to make people feel calmer. Panax ginseng interacts with many prescription drugs.

Muira puama (Ptychopetalum olacoide), also called "potency wood," is a small tree native to the Brazilian Amazon. Traditionally known as a nerve tonic, Amazonian natives use remedies prepared with it for sexual debility, fatigue, and neuromuscular problems, as well as various central nervous system conditions (including those associated with aging). The root and bark of muira puama are rich in free long-chain fatty acids, essential oils, plant sterols, coumarin, lupeol, and an alkaloid named muirapuamine. Because of its various constituents, it is difficult to identify the exact chemicals responsible for its effects. One study in rabbits indicates muira puama has the ability to relax the corpus cavernosa of the penis, allowing for engorgement. Another study indicates muira puama may block an enzyme known as acetylcholinesterase. By blocking activity of this enzyme, more acetylcholine is available in the central nervous system, which may be helpful in Alzheimer's disease and poor memory. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter involved in memory, and helps dilate blood vessels in the genital region.

In 1990, at the Institute of Sexology in Paris, France, a clinical study with 262 patients complaining of lack of sexual desire demonstrated muira puama extract to be effective. Within two weeks, at a daily dose of 1 to 1.5 grams of 4:1 extract, 62% of patients with loss of libido claimed the treatment was helpful. In 2000, researchers at the Institute of Sexology published another study. The effectiveness of a herbal formulation of muira puama and ginkgo biloba was assessed in 202 healthy women complaining of low sex drive. Various aspects of their sex life were rated before and after 1 month of treatment. Statistically significant improvements occurred in frequency of sexual desires, sexual intercourse, and sexual fantasies, as well as in satisfaction with sex life, intensity of sexual desires, excitement of fantasies, ability to reach orgasm, and intensity of orgasm. Reported tolerability of the muira puama and ginkgo combination was good.

Maca root is a nutritionally dense super-food that contains high amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes and all of the essential amino acids. Maca root is rich in B-vitamins, which are the energy vitamins, and maca is a vegetarian source of B-12. Maca has high levels of bioavailable calcium and magnesium and other minerals. Instead of providing hormones to the body, maca works as an adaptogen which means that it responds to different bodies' needs individually. Maca stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which are the "master glands" of the body. These glands regulate the other glands, so when in balance they can bring balance to the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands. Maca root has been shown to be beneficial for all sorts of hormonal problems including PMS, menopause, and hot flashes. Maca's also a fertility enhancer and is best known for improving libido and sexual function, especially in men.

Mucuna Prureins (Velvet Bean Seeds), have been used for centuries in Ayurveda medicine as an aphrodisiac to increase libido in both men and women, primarily due to its high concentrations (about 50 mg per bean seed) of natural L-Dopa (levodopa) a precursor of Dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that promotes enjoyment and enhances interest in life, as well as plays a key role in growth hormone secretion. In addition to L-Dopa, Mucuna also contains serotonin (5-HT), 5-HTP, N, N-DMT (DMT), bufotenine, and 5-MeO-DMT.2 New research suggests Mucuna may also support testosterone production. In one study 150 male subjects (75 fertile, 75 unfertile, age range 25-40), were each given 5 grams of Mucuna seed powder every day for 3 months. Before and after treatment, subjects had their testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH), and prolactin levels tested. In both subject groups testosterone and LH levels increased significantly while prolactin levels decreased.3

The primary active constituent in Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium Sagittatum) is icariin,[6] found in standardized extracts from 5% up to 60%. In this formulation we use a standardized 20% extract. Icariin is purported to work by increasing levels of nitric oxide, which relax smooth muscle. Like sildenafil (the erectile dysfunction drug commonly sold as Viagra), icariin, the active compound in epimedium, inhibits the activity of PDE-5. Epimedium has been shown to up-regulate genes associated with nitric oxide production and changes in adenosine/guanine monophosphate balance in ways that other PDE5 inhibitors do not. Epimedium may have potential to help sexual dysfunction and osteoporosis.[14] Animal studies indicate icariin also stimulates osteoblast activity in bone tissue, leading to the development and marketing of medicinal products based on epimedium extracts for treatment of osteoporosis.[16][17][18][19]

Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides)Berry is a hardy, cold-climate plant originating from the mountains of China and Russia. This valuable plant multi-tasks as a food and medicinal source and as a barrier to prevent soil erosion in Northern climates. It’s Latin name, Hippophae rhamnoides, means "making horses bright," a reference to the food of horses belonging to Genghis Khan's troops. It produces berries that last through winter, providing vitamin C, E, folate, carotenoids, flavonoids and fatty acids. The seed's oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, K, carotenoids and sterols, a substance that aids in cell function.

Sea cucumbers are not actually cucumbers, but are marine animals, related to starfish and sea urchins. They are known to have anti-aging agents and are strong anti-oxidants. Nutrient rich Sea cucumbers provide vitamins A, B1(thiamine), B2(riboflavin) and B3(niacin), and C as well as the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc.Sea cucumbers also contain a compound known as chondroitin sulfate. A study by Brazilian scientists published in September 1996 in the “Journal of Biological Chemistry” found that chondroitin sulfate has anticoagulant activity. Sea cucumbers have potent anti-inflammatory effects. A study by Malaysian scientists published in October 2011 in “Marine Drugs” found sea cucumber supplements reduced inflammation in both male and female rats. This effect is attributed to compounds such as mucopolysaccharides, chondroitin and glucosamine rich in sea cucumbers. Such compounds help in the regulation of the balance of certain lipids known as prostaglandins. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis usually have high concentrations of certain prostaglandins, according to a study published in 2008 in the “American College of Rheumatology.” Sea cucumber may have wound healing benefits - a property that is believed to stem from the ability of a sea cucumber to regenerate its own body tissues quickly when injured. According to the October 2011 "Marine Drugs" study, this is believed to be facilitated by certain fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid, present in sea cucumber.

Cinnamon Bark contains antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, antispasmodic, and anti fungal properties that help to prevent infection by killing decay-causing bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Cinnamon bark is helpful in supporting the digestive system. Research reports that cinnamon bark helps break down fats in the digestive system, making it a valuable digestive aid. A traditional stimulant in Chinese medicine, cinnamon bark has a thermogenic effect on the body.

Red Sage or Danshen (Salvia Miltiorrhiza) Root. An antioxidant called salvianolic acid (or salvianolic acid B) isolated from Danshen is under study for protection against cerebrovascular disorders.[9][13]Tanshinone IIA is one of the most abundant constituents of the root of Salvia miltiorrhiza which exerts antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions in many experimental disease models,[16][17]

Results from animal and human studies support the use of Danshen for circulatory disorders to some extent because it is known to decrease the blood's ability to clot in at least two ways. First, it limits the stickiness of blood platelets. It also decreases the production of fibrin, the threads of protein that trap blood cells to form clots. Both these effects help to improve blood circulation. In addition, chemicals in danshen may relax and widen blood vessels, especially those around the heart. In animal studies, chemicals in danshen may also have protected the inner linings of arteries from damage. Some other research suggests it may increase the force of heartbeats and slow the heart rate slightly.

In animal studies, Danshen has appeared to interfere with the development of liver fibrosis — the formation of scar-like fibers in the liver. Having chronic hepatitis and habitually drinking large amounts of alcoholic beverages are the major causes of liver fibrosis. Danshen may also increase blood flow into the liver, so the length of time that potentially damaging substances stay in the liver may be reduced. In addition Salvia miltiorrhiza inhibits α-glucosidase activity.[24] Salvia may stimulate dopamine release and has protective effects against free radical-induced cell toxicity.[27][28] S. miltiorrhiza stimulates increased osteogenesis in vivo (bone cell growth).[29]

Danshen has been shown to potentiate the effects of the common anticoagulation drug warfarin, leading to gross anticoagulation and bleeding complications. Danshen should be avoided by those using warfarin.[31]

Artichoke (Cynara Scolymus) Leaf (not to be confused with Jerusalem Artichoke)is rich in cynarine. The majority of the cynarine found in artichoke is located in the pulp of the leaves, though dried leaves and stems also contain it. Cynarine inhibits taste receptors, making water (and other foods/drinks) seem sweet.[15] Artichoke leaf extract has proved helpful for patients with functional dyspepsia,[24] and may ameliorate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.[25][26]

Zinc aspartate is a totally reacted, nutritionally functional chelate offering better absorption, greater tolerance, better retention and safe bioavailability.

Boron was found to decrease SHBG and increase free Testosterone, DHT, and androgen 7 times more potent than testosterone. This is important for men according to Haghii. Also it is a trace mineral critical for bone density, particularly in postmenopausal women. A study was done on 12 women between the ages of 48 and 82 housed in a metabolic unit to examine the effects of aluminum, magnesium, and boron on major mineral metabolism in postmenopausal women. A boron supplement was tested of 3 mg/day affected several indices of mineral metabolism in 7 women consuming a low-magnesium diet and 5 consuming an adequate magnesium diet. Boron supplementation markedly reduced the urinary excretion of calcium and magnesium as well as elevated the serum concentrations of 17 beta-estradiol and testosterone (the elevation seemed more marked when dietary magnesium was low). The findings suggest supplementation of a low- boron diet with an amount of boron commonly found in diets high in fruits and vegetables produces results consistent with the prevention of calcium loss and bone.
