Phyto-androgens: Natural Hormone Replacement for Men

The following information is an abstract from Stephen Harrod Buhner

Following herbs are some of the most powerful phyto-androgens known so far. The plant that contains the most testosterone (and other androgens) is, at this point, pine pollen. Over the past ten years I have experienced a great deal of benefit from it as have a great many men from whom I have heard. (Sources for all herbs, except David’s lily, are listed in the resource section at the end of the book.)

Natural Testosterone Enhancement Protocol:
Pine pollen tincture: 3/8 tsp, 3x daily
Nettle root: 1200 mg daily
Tribulus: 500 mg, 3x daily
Panax ginseng: 1/4 tsp daily
Tienchi ginseng: 1/3 tsp, 3x daily
Eleuthero: 1 tsp, 2x dailyPine (Pinus spp.) and Pine Pollen
Family: Pinaceae

Common Names: Different species of pine trees have different common names: Scots or Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris), black pine (Pinus nigra), Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis), masson pine (Pinus massonia), and Chinese pine, also known as Chinese oil pine and Chinese red pine (Pinus tabulaeformis). Pine pollen is also called songhuanfen (Chinese), songhwaju (Korean), and pollen pini (Latin). Note: A number of sources and Web sites translate pollen pini as “bee pollen” and sell bee pollen as pollen pini. This is incorrect. When looking for pine pollen, care must be taken that what is labeled as pollen pini really is pine pollen and not bee pollen.

Parts Used: All parts of the pine are used for medicine, including the pollen, bark, seeds, and needles. To increase testosterone in the body and balance the androgen/estrogen ratio, the pollen is the primary part used. It is very high in testosterone. To a lesser extent, the seeds may also be used for this purpose, with some caveats (see chapter 6). Although the bark is excellent for many things, it normally does not contain enough testosterone and other androgens to be of use for this purpose.

As pine pollen tablets can improve the testosterone level, it is commonly used by people for absorbing more nutrients together. If you would like to know more and how it can help, please visit our site at or respond to this blog.

Q&A: Health and Health Food – 15th Soybean Health Food Series

1. What are the effects of taking Soya Isoflavone Soft Capsule?

Soya isoflavone is one of the nutrients extracted from soya, whose structure is similar to the human female hormone. Having either a female hormone supplementary or inhibiting effect, soya isoflavone has a dual regulation to the level of female hormone secreted by ovary. Therefore, the normal volume of female hormone secretion of middle-aged and older women is maintained and the poor skin conditions caused by aging, such as dryness, looseness, deposition of pigments and wrinkles, can be improved. Besides, the intake of this product prevents various symptoms of menopause, improves the quality of sleep and resists osteoporosis. Thus soya isoflavone is suitable for women above 30 years old, especially those in menopause.

2. Will any side effects be induced after taking Soya Isoflavone Soft Capsule for a long period?

People have been eating soya for thousands of years and hazardous effects hardly occur. Quality and natural soya isoflavone is easily absorbed by the body and the excess is excreted out of the body immediately. So no harmful substances remain in the body.

Clinical experiment shows that, soya isoflavone has a slow and long-lasting effect with no obvious side effects observed.
