Ginger, May Be A Natural Alternative for Testosterone Hormone Therapy with No Side Effects, According to Studies

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have a pungent spice which processes a potential to increased levels of testosterone deficiency, particularly in the elderly with no side effects according to studies.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone found in humans made mostly from the testicles in men and a small amount in women's ovaries.

According to epidemiological studies, treatment for hypogonadism is on the rise, particularly in the population due to natural reduced production of levels of testosterone other than normal aging.

Testosterone production starts to produce significantly during puberty and dip after age 30. 

In males, the early onset of reduced production of levels of testosterone is associated with a highly prevalent burden of comorbid medical conditions and polypharmacy complicates compared to those of normal aging,

Also, low levels of testosterone in the males are associated with the early onset of metabolic syndrome in the induction of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

Conventional medicine used for the treatment in this population is found to be a unique challenge to clinicians. 

Apart from normal aging, low levels of testosterone are found to induce symptoms of decreased sex drive,  low energy, weight gain, the risk of depression, and moodiness, loss of hair and thinner bones.

If you are experiencing some of the above symptoms, you may have low levels of testosterone. Please make sure you check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.

Dr. Giagulli VA, in examining the complications of testosterone in men wrote, "Testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS) induces several negative effects that generally involve different organs such as testis, bone, skeletal muscle, and heart, leading to reduction in testis function, causing osteoporosis, strongly reducing muscle mass, decreasing exercise capacity and strength and facilitating heart failure".

And, " Approximately 25% of patients affected by chronic heart failure (CHF) is characterized by plasma Testosterone (T) levels below normal ranges also related to disease progression".

These results clearly suggested apart from normal aging, males with testosterone deficiency are associated with the complications of many ailments.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.

The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.

Scientists on finding a natural compound which processes a function in enhancing and protecting primary sex hormone in males examined the effects of ginger activity in enhancing testosterone production in males.

By searching the PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases for English language articles (full texts or abstracts) from November 1991 through August 2018 using the keywords "ginger" and "Zingiber officinale" versus "testosterone" linking the effects of ginger on testosterone researchers found that ginger supplementation, particularly in oxidative stress conditions, enhances testosterone production in males.

The mechanisms by which this occurs mainly by enhancing luteinizing hormone (LH) production in stimulating the Leydig cell production of testosterone, increasing the level of cholesterol in synthesizing male sex steroid, testosterone (T), by reducing oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation in the testes.

Furthermore, application of ginger also inhibited the expression of free radical by promoting the activity of the antioxidant enzymes.

Ginger also normalized the blood glucose by increasing blood flow to the testes.

Moreover, ginger improved production of testosterone by increasing testicular weight and recycling testosterone receptors.

The finding strongly supports the use of ginger in the enhanced testosterone production for treatment of diseases associated with the testosterone deficiency.

In order to reveal more information about ginger in the production of testosterone by examing the
ginger effects on multiple animal models, including 60adult male Sprague Dawley rats divided into * Group A served as normal control,

* Group B received 0.3% lead acetate in drinking water,

*Group C and group D received supplementary 0.5 and 1 gm/Kg body weight of ginger respectively along with lead acetate in drinking water.

During the experiments, co-administration with different doses of ginger showed a significant rise in the testosterone levels in of teste, compared to the lead-treated group.

Interestingly, ginger application at different doses showed no significant change of LH levels, compared to the rise in the previous ginger treatment,

These results strongly suggested there must other compounds from ginger that exhibits the increased levels of LH that is not mentioned in both studies.

Taken altogether, ginger may be considered a functional remedy for the prevention and combined with primary medicine for the treatment for diseases associated with testosterone deficiency.
