Does Pine Pollen Boost Testosterone?
Over the years there have been many products that lied to us and told us we could expect a large increase in testosterone production, when it reality none of the worked. Nowadays, athletes and bodybuilders are consuming ZMA, DAA, and Tribulus supplements to boost their natural testosterone production year-round. ZMA, Zinc and Magnesium, are both minerals that are included in pine pollen. Tribulus is a proven scam, as it has no effect whatsoever on testosterone production. DAA is highly effective and there are published studies to back up the claims - unbiased studies.
So, what about pine pollen? does it work? Of course it does, because it contains Zinc, Magnesium, and a ton of Vitamin D. What else is in pine pollen? Natural androgens like Androstenedione, Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and Androsterone. The studies and research on DHEA concludes that it is highly effective as an anti-aging supplement and as a testosterone booster.
Pine pollen contains ZMA, so you don't have to waste money on a ZMA supplement. It also contains DHEA, so you don't have to waste money on that either. There are dozens of Vitamin D supplements on the market as well, and they even claim to boost testosterone. In fact, almost every testosterone booster on the market contains Vitamin D because it works. Pine pollen is like a gift from the heavens for bodybuilders and athletes who want to build muscle and improve their endurance. But, it's also a gift for all of us who want to stay younger for longer, as it will prevent the effects of aging, allowing us to look good and feel good for a very long time.

Men older than 35 should take pine pollen...
If you are over the age of 35 then your testosterone levels are going to get low soon, if they aren't already. Men these days are noticing the effects of low testosterone as early as 25, but the only way to know for sure is by getting a blood test and checking the results. Low testosterone is easy to treat, as your doctor can get you on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). However, many men are wondering if there's anything natural that will work to get their energy and libido back. Fortunately, there is pine pollen, daa and healthy living choices you can make to get your testosterone levels back up to the way they were when you were 21.
Of course, pine pollen is great but it is no miracle, so make sure you eat right and get plenty of exercise. You can't really expect your testosterone levels to skyrocket if you don't give your body a reason to produce it. When you exercise and work your muscles, your body will need to release testosterone for muscle repair. This is why it's important you exercise and work out every muscle on your body, especially the largest muscles, your legs.
The combination of DAA and Pine Pollen will gaurantee high test levels within a month or two, and you can expect an increase in libido within a week due to the DAA and DHEA in pine pollen. For the best results you should get a pine pollen tincture or powdered extract, one that is very potent and contains the most androgens.
How to Increase Testosterone Production...
Adding Pine Pollen to Your Diet
Pine pollen is great because it's effective and comes in many forms. For instance, there are capsules, powdered extracts and tinctures which all contain different levels of vitamins and androgens. If you are a bodybuilder or athlete you should consider a powdered extract, which can be blended into a smoothie or protein shake. Tinctures are great and many people mix them in with their salad dressings, which just goes to show how creative you can get with the consumption of pine pollen. Always check the recommended dose when you get a potent extract or tincture, as you don't want to overload on natural androgens. Some people say they are so effective at boosting testosterone that your body will shut-down natural test production if you consume too much. Otherwise, it is completely safe and you can consume it every single day for the rest of your life and never once will you experience a negative effect from it. You can grow it and harvest it on your own or purchase it from supplement companies, it's really easy to make pine pollen tinctures.
How long does it take for pine pollen to kick in?
Although pine pollen is safe and highly effective, one can't expect an increase in testosterone production or muscle mass simply because they take a supplement. If your goal is to gain muscle mass then you need to train for it in the gym and eat enough to pack on muscle. If your goal is to look younger or feel younger, then you should at least do some form of exercise, resistance band training, cross fit, or daily cardio. If you are already training for your goal and eating a healthy diet then you can expect to notice the effects a lot sooner than someone who hasn't exercised in years. Pine pollen will boost your mood, libido and testosterone production if you eat and train right.
