Many men are skeptical of testosterone supplementation and their ability to provide effective results. Some men wonder what testosterone supplements do. They are leery of spending their money on products that claim to work, yet fail to deliver. Fortunately, most natural testosterone supplements do, in fact, work. One thing that man men that opt for supplements over prescription testosterone especially appreciate is the fact that supplements work without the necessity to deal with potentially harmful side effects. It is important to choose the right supplement in order to achieve the desired benefits.
A. I am not aware of anyone who has successfully pursued HCG mono and not needed to control estrogen. HCG produces much more estrogen than exogenous test does. I would advise anyone who tries this route to not even start it unless their doctor is monitoring their estradiol and is willing to prescribe Arimidex if estrogen gets high. Because I can almost guarantee it will and you will not get any benefits without controlling it. All of the erectile function benefits did not occur for me until about a week and a half after I started taking Arimidex, as my estradiol had gone up to 49 from half the HCG dosage I currently take.
But I'm not more aggressive—a behavior change often tied to testosterone. That's not surprising to Robert Sapolsky, ., a neuroendocrinologist at Stanford University and a leading researcher on stress and behavior. "It's really not the case that testosterone 'causes' aggressive behavior," he says. "Instead, it makes the brain more sensitive to social cues that trigger aggression. And in support of that, a guy's testosterone level isn't a very good predictor of how likely he is to be aggressive."
