  • Effects of He Shou Wu (Fo-ti) on testosterone

    I remember reading a study linking men who go bald in early adulthood have higher levels of testosterone. I believe this as I'm 25 and my hair has been thinning rapidly for two years. I have a lean body and a high sex drive and I pack on muscle fast when I work out.

    Fo-ti supposedly increases sexual drive and promotes youthful vigor. It would make sense to me that that would probably be a result of boosting T levels. However, the main thing Fo-ti is recognized as is it's ability to improve hair loss.

    How can this herb simultaneously increase levels of testosterone while fighting hair loss when the two are related?
