Your Guide To: Warrior Bulbine

Warrior Bulbine Natalensis is a pure bulbine natalensis supplement. Bulbine Natalensis is a herb commonly used in Southern Africa as an aphrodisiac. Many of the existing studies are on rats, however it is currently being investigated for its role on testosterone following the many positive accounts from users, including athletes wanting to enhance natural testosterone levels for better muscle and strength gains.

Natural testosterone will peak during young adulthood and slowly begin to decline from 30s in healthy men. There are certain things that we can do ourselves to increase and support testosterone. These include lifting weights to increase muscle mass, alongside eating enough protein for growth, and getting plenty of 'good' fats in our diet for hormone regulation.

 

In one rodent study, bulbine was shown to outperform Viagra for libido enhancement, as well as increasing serum testosterone and decreasing oestrogen (Yakubu and Afolayan, 2009).

A 2012 study of bulbine on healthy men by Hofheins et alconcluded that Bulbine was safe, considering the hemodynamic, hepatic, renal, and hematologic biomarkers assessed. However, studies of higher relative doses on rats have shown negative effects on hormones and organs. It is recommended that you always follow the directions on the product and do your own research to weigh up the pros and cons.

Warrior Bulbine contains 500mg bulbine per 2 tab serving. Two servings a day are recommended, one first thing in the morning and one pre-workout.
