Our most advanced Herbal Androgenic formula to date. Pine Pollen is enhanced with the Androgenic qualities of Nettle Root and the Adaptogenic effects of Eleuthero Root (Siberian Ginseng), and its flavors are enhanced with Tahitian Vanilla Beans and Orange Peels!
Pine Pollen Pure Potency is our most advanced androgenic formula to date.
Pine Pollens contain naturally occurring androgens like testosterone and DHEA, which are gently extracted through our low temperature Organic Grape Ethanol percolation method, along with the roots of Organic Stinging Nettle and Organically grown Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng) plants.
We have added Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) for its reported ability to bind with sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), thereby promoting the circulation of free testosterone in the body. It is also well known and long used for the maintenance of a healthy prostate, where it has long been considered a superior anti-inflammatory in the herbal treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).
Organic Eleuthero Root plays the supporting adaptogenic role in SurThrival’s brand new formula due to its long-heralded reputation for gently increasing androgen levels. It supports the health of the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands (also known as the HPA- or Hypothalmus-Pituitary-Adrenal-Axis), organs that are critical to the healthy production of testosterone and other androgens.
Some herbalists feel that Pine Pollen in tincture form is contraindicated for adolescent males. This is due to the fact that Pine Pollen contains naturally occurring androgens and because androgen therapy is typically contraindicated in young men.
Pine Pollen Powder does not have this contraindication due to the low absorption rate of androgens in this form.
We are not aware of any information supporting this contraindication, but ask you to consider the words of Stephen Harrod Buhner from his book, “Pine Pollen: Ancient Medicine for a New Millennium”:
“Pine pollen tincture is for men in middle age or older or for those with the various kinds of disease conditions that pine pollen helps rectify. Pine pollen powder, on the other hand, can be used as a nutrient food or supplement by anyone with no restrictions other than for those with pine pollen allergy. It truly is good for all, female, male, child, adolescent, bodybuilder, or the aged. Except in unusual circumstances due to medical conditions, pine pollen tincture does not need to be used by adolescent men.”
We encourage you to consider this before purchasing.
