Astragalus For More Leydig Cells (And Testosterone)

This study may be of interest for those wishing to ‘naturally’ increase their testosterone levels, or perhaps trying to restart their HPTA.

Astragalus membranaceus increases the production of testosterone, and the number of testosterone-producing Leydig cells, by boosting the activity of antioxidant enzymes and the reduction of the activity of suicide genes.
Perhaps taking it with forskolin, which makes the receptors in the testes more sensitive to LH, might be a worthwhile combination?

Study here.

I am about 50 days into a 90 run of TA-65.
I haven’t noticed anything significant, though occasionally I get the impression I feel better or am a very little stronger. It could be all placebo, or wishful thinking.

I am on 100mg of testosterone cypionate every 5 days.

Astragalus is also good for its cardioprotective effects, improving glucose metabolism, and supporting kidney function.

But the TA-65 is pretty pricey
