    I'm not sure about this article. Sounds too bro-science to me. But then again, I drink a lot of coffee and seem to be doing ok. icon_neutral.gif

    When most bodybuilders drink coffee, all they think about is the fact that it contains caffeine. But in addition to caffeine, coffee also contains hundreds of other components, including chlorogenic acid, quinides, lignans, and trigonelline, which significantly improve insulin sensitivity or glucose levels.

    In cross-sectional studies, coffee consumption has been associated with higher adiponectin concentrations (i.e., increased insulin sensitivity), lower concentrations of inflammatory markers, and lower levels of markers of liver damage.

    Now, a Nutrition Journal study also indicates that men who consumed caffeinated coffee have more testosterone. In the study, subjects were assigned to caffeinated and decaffeinated groups. Participants consumed five 2g portions of instant coffee per day (caffeinated or decaffeinated Nestlé’s Taster’s Choice), which was mixed with approximately six ounces of boiling water and consumed with every meal as well as mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

    After four weeks, results showed that only the caffeinated group experienced significant increases in total testosterone and decreases in both total and free estradiol. The researchers suggest that caffeine may act as an aromatase inhibitor that causes increased testosterone production.

    So, the next time you reach for a cup of coffee, be sure to ask for leaded!!

    Balding is hereditary. Contrary to popular believe, steroids or testosterone supplementation will not make you bald. However, if you have a history of baldness in the family, then steroids/testosterone will increase the likelihood.

    LOL. I'm not sure either. There's always conflicting information. But the article is still vague to me..

    "..five 2g portions of instant coffee per day.."

    That's seems like a small amount of coffee/caffeine. I wonder if the key is to have a steady intake of coffee/caffeine throughout the day, or take it in all at once; like in the morning as most people do. icon_neutral.gif

    I see, you see tea huh icon_cool.gif

    Well my dear as far its been for me with teas and its many variations, It does very much pronounce on the circulations side, that said good flow of blood followed by great erections icon_cool.gif(as to a more focus question Yes! greater circumference/thickness as a well) icon_biggrin.gif.
    As for Testosterone in that particular icon_confused.gif, I don't quite think it is much of a factor that comes along with tea. I do see it more of other influences of what you consume on the overall day to day food you eat.

    If you ask me the closest thing about tea to testosterone is "The NOS" [nitrous oxide] as it for Cars (which really will accent the hype of testosterone flow in the body, where it make you feel like "The Man!" having a glory sword) that all a level I would say looking at the highest grade of Green-tea you are drinking icon_biggrin.gif. The ones Japanese are drinking icon_cool.gif. Not the Chinese icon_rolleyes.gif, they are more of the experts in Black tea which is not entirely to my taste of liking so as the process method in make black tea, though there are some likable ones but isn't the ones you can get easily on shelves.

    Try a commercial Green tea and then go try Gyokuro grade tea from Japan. icon_cool.gif & tell me how you feel about me. icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI wonder if the component in coffee that is apparently related to lower estrogen levels has to do with coffee beans being a phytoestrogen. Like most herbs and vegetables, they have phytoestrogens which binds to the estrogen receptor sites in humans and block human estrogen from binding to estrogen receptor sites.

    Although, blocking estrogen and lowering estrogen levels are two different mechanisms. So maybe I'm off base. This is interesting nonetheless.

    Yeah, I think this is the key, and not so much the caffeine by itself. I will continue to drink my coffee. icon_biggrin.gif
