(Newswire.net — January 27, 2017) Las Vegas, NV — Testosterone is an important aspect in the health of men. However, there are problems often associated with it which may result in a variety of medical problems. The good news is that there are natural alternatives men may want to consider to potentially improve their testosterone levels.

Turmeric may be a natural testosterone–enhancing alternative for men. There are many factors that trigger the development of prostate problems such as poor nutrition and hormonal imbalance.

There are certain dietary requirements that many men are unable to meet, and which may result in certain health problems. The use of supplements, such as turmeric, may potentially satisfy these nutritional needs. Natural supplements may even help support energy, mood, metabolism, libido, strength, and erectile function in men.

Turmeric is thought to help enhance the natural production of testosterone as well as keep it at healthy, normal levels. There is a treatment called testosterone therapy, which is resorted to by men who want to improve testosterone levels.

Unfortunately, it may stop the ability of the body to produce testosterone. Testosterone therapy is also believed to encourage dependence, and this triggers the development of possible side effects.

The researchers from the University in Nigeria reveal that curcumin has succeeded in increasing testosterone levels in the blood of male rats. Details of the study were written in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Curcumin is a phytochemical found in turmeric, and is widely believed to be responsible for the spice’s potential benefits. It is believed to contain antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

It also contains the substance called gallic acid, which may be found in certain teas and grapes. While gallic acid is believed to offer a variety of protective effects, it may turn into an oxidant when in high quantities.

The researchers conducted a 30-day trial to determine if curcumin, through its potential antioxidants, has the ability to counteract the pro-oxidant effects. It is worth noting that gallic acid in high concentrations has been linked with reduced production of sperm and testosterone.

At the end of the trial, the researchers found that the quality of sperm in the gallic acid group deteriorated. The curcumin group, on the other hand, has achieved some significant improvements.

Many people are using turmeric powder to take advantage of the potentially therapeutic effects of curcumin. Turmeric powder can be added to a wide range of dishes and beverages.

There are also curcumin supplements available. The most popular of which contain a black pepper extract called piperine, which is believed to be a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient.
