Ginger As A Testosterone Booster
Ginger has been subjected to a number of clinical trials dating from 2002 to 2012. of these, 5 were carried out on Rats, mice and chickens with varying results, 1 was carried out using 100 male subjects, 75 of who were infertile, with the other 25 fertile. The age of the subjects ranged between 18 and 44.
The amount of ginger given was not disclosed in the study report ( which was held in Iran) but over the three month test period the infertile men did show an average increase in testosterone of 17.7% with increased sperm motility (47.3%) and improve ejaculate volume (36.1%)
The otherwise healthy, fertile men did not show the same results
In men who are infertile, ginger has demonstrated that it can help boost testosterone levels and could help increase semen volume along with ejaculation strength…
Healthy men however, looking to boost testosterone levels to help with muscle building, will almost certainly not see any benefits..
