Adam’s Apple Part 2 Let us continue on last week’s topic of using fruit polyphenols to help fight free radicals that can harm testosterone production.
Apples and grapes have been praised in traditional lore as wellsprings of health; modern researchers have found these fruits to contain antioxidant polyphenols. In laboratory studies, these substances have shown potential to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation (PLOS ONE 1/12 and 1/29/15). They’ve also been found to boost endurance and decrease both blood pressure and arterial plaque formation (PLOS ONE 9/16/15. Nutrients 8/24/15).
ViNitrox is a dietary supplement ingredient that combines apples and grape polyphenols. This formulation is designed to fight a specific free radical, peroxynitrite, that has been found to reduce testosterone levels (it doesn’t help that lowering testosterone causes an increase in peroxynitrite). In an unpublished French study, ViNitrox was able to reduce fatigue and increase performance among atheletes. ViNitrox works best in conjunction with testosterone-supporting herbs. Tribulus terrestris, also known as puncture vine, is valued in Eastern medicine for increasing sperm production and correcting erectile dysfunction; it has enhanced male sex drive in clinical trials. The spice fenugreek contains compounds that have shown an ability to raise testosterone levels. And Rhodiola rosea, which helps the body deal with stress, has been noted for its ability to reduce fatigue, improve mental and physical stamina and revive a sagging libido.
Our contaminated world can be tough on testosterone. Fortunately, apple and grape polyphenols can help a man’s body fight back.
