Maintaining normal testosterone levels is one of the most important steps men can take to regain their health and improve their performance.
If you’re over 40, odds are you’re already starting to feel the effects of low testosterone. Research shows that by age 60, men typically produce 60% less testosterone than they did at age 20.33 The reduction of testosterone levels has been associated with the blues, cognitive decline, reduced sex drive and abdominal fat gain. Normal testosterone has been associated with maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.34
Restoring Health and Sexual Vigor
The reformulated Super MiraForte contains high potencies of chrysin and nettle root extract. These ingredients reduce the aromatization (conversion) of testosterone to estrogen and enhance free testosterone levels.35,36 Bioperine® is included to facilitate the absorption of chrysin (a flavonoid) into the bloodstream.
Muira puama is a rainforest herb classified in the Brazilian Pharmacopoeia as an aphrodisiac. In a trial of men with decreased libido and other sexual issues, 62% of those taking muira puama reported positive results in regard to libido, while 51% of those with a common sexual problem felt that the herb was helpful.37 A second trial examined men with decreased libido and found that 85% of the test subjects taking muira puama enjoyed an enhanced libido, 90% had improved sexual function, and 100% of test subjects experienced an increase in intercourse frequency.38
To augment these protective effects, a standardized lignan extract from Norwegian spruce has been added to Super MiraForte. These lignans convert to enterolactone in the intestine. They are then rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream where they provide significant biological effects.39 Enterolactone has demonstrated anti-estrogen and anti-DHT effects that are of particular importance for the aging prostate gland.40,41
