Fadogia Agrestis; A potential libido and testosterone enhancing herb to compliment Tongkat Ali

Posted by Jordan Acheson on

Following our super successful launch of Tongkat Ali, we are keen to continue supplying only the best natural testosterone and libdo enhacing herbs. Fadogia Agrestis is a shrub native to Nigeria which has been traditionally used as a potent aphrodisiac and has some promising empirical research to back this function.

One study noted significant dose-response improvements in rodents sexual activity and up to a two-fold  increase in testosterone concentrations, with oral administration of Fadogia Agrestis at 18 mg/kg, 50 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg body weight dosages [1]. Notably, time between intercouse bouts were sigificantly reduced, whilst ejaculation latency significantly increased. The later of these findings are unusual given that aphrodisiacs normally reduce ejacualtion latency. Similar dose-response findings were noted by another rodent study utilising doses of 50 mg/kg, 100 mg/kg and 150 mg/kg of body weight per day [2]. 

It is suggested that the plants high concentrations of alkaloids and saponins may be responsible for the observed aphrodisiac and testosterone increasing effects. However, whilst much of Fadogia's bioactive constituents remain to be explored, the shrub has been shown to contain alkylamide glycosides, which are uncommon in other testosterone supporting herbs.

So what does this all mean in English? Well, much is yet to be discovered regarding Fadogia Agrestis' application in Humans. However, rodent data suggests adequate daily doses of the herb improves libido, testosterone production. Interestingly, Fadogia appears to increase time to ejaculation, which may be great news for men wanting to extend their bed-room performance.
