    Interesting. Nothing too surprising, except for the reference to "heather." What's that about?

    the word "Strength training" is probably too narrow a search. The table "Androgen" shows quite a bit of foods and herbs associated with its research. 7 papers mention tribulus terrestris. Does this herb work for any one? It suppose to grow like weeds and you can get the seeds online.

    This paper states how heather honey best preserves antioxidant and flavornoids over other honey... also raw honey is better than processed or fermented honey... honey get fermented naturally in the wild over time.

    The table on androgens shows a surprise list of foods:

    You do NOT want to grow tribulus terrestris aka goat heads. It is a very noxious weed that needs almost no water to thrive and produces hundreds of goat heads that can puncture your foot through your shoes, puncture (and deflate) bicycles tires, etc. Here's what a seed head looks like. The thorns are evil! Another name for it is puncture vine.

    ... it does look bad. I got tired of my bike get punctured by similar weeds. But if it works, these weeds can be combed off the fields. So far there are not a lot of scientific data on them. Caffeine can't be used all the time.
