Penis supplementation is widely available in a variety of natural and medical forms, but does it really result in a bigger penis, and is it a good idea? This article explores the possible benefits and potential drawbacks to using penis supplements in your quest for a bigger and healthier penis.
PENIS SUPPLEMENTATION: A GOOD IDEA?
In recent conversations, we discussed the subject of penis supplementation and its possible rewards and drawbacks. For years now, the body building industry has reflected on the principle of supplementation using nutrient and prescription steroids or anabolic molecules. The professional bodybuilding arena learned to embrace this protocol, but not without great human suffering. Anabolic steroid use was widely unregulated and therefore subject to abuse by those who thought more was better. Wiser bodybuilders learned that balance (prudent use of the quantity/quality of steroids for limited time periods during the bulking-up process) was the best policy for their long-term health and supra-normal muscle gains.
Some in penis enlargement circles have expressed a desire to explore this subject by examining benefits and risks of certain penis supplementation methods. There is a great proliferation of male enhancement supplements available. As always, buyer beware – you can waste a lot of money on this.
NON-PRESCRIPTION vs. PRESCRIPTION SUPPLEMENTS
Some of the names that I am familiar with among non-prescription supplements are: Super Miraforte, horny goat weed, DHEA (widely available and a precursor to testosterone in the body), Niacin (enhances peripheral circulation/flushing), and L-Arginine (a source/provider of nitrous oxide for the body, the key molecule in inducing erections). Prescription drugs include Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and bioidentical hormones. The main hormone of interest is bioidentical testosterone, which can be ordered through a compounding pharmacist.
A bioidentical hormone is identical to that produced in the body and is therefore thought to be more optimal than non-bioidentical. Non-bioidentical hormones are not identical to those synthesized in the body. These molecules have a “side carbon chain” added to make them patentable and hence profitable for the pharmaceutical company, and should therefore be avoided! When I refer to testosterone throughout this discussion, I am referring to the bioidentical form.
TESTOSTERONE PENIS SUPPLEMENTATION
Testosterone requires a doctor’s prescription, comes in cream form, and can be applied directly to the most permeable skin on the body: namely between the legs and under the arm pits.
Let’s start with the risks. Many people do not realize that the body is exquisitely balanced in all respects. Your body’s
testosterone is produced mainly by the testes, and this production is controlled by the pituitary gland through the secretion of gonadotrophic hormone to maintain steady state levels in the body. This “feedback” mechanism works magnificently in younger men, maintaining consistently optimal levels. (I will arbitrarily define a younger man as under 50, depending on the health status of the individual.) After a certain age the testosterone availability and production diminish. When this drop is medically verified in the individuals’ blood levels, some physicians are beginning to prescribe testosterone.
WILL TESOSTERONE BOOSTS LEAD TO A BIGGER PENIS?
What would be the physiological scenario if a younger man were to supplement with testosterone to induce supra-growth in his penis? As there is not significant scientific information that I am aware of to concretely answer this question, we will have to look at a similar model to hypothesize and extrapolate, namely, classic professional bodybuilding.
The supra-muscular results achieved by professional bodybuilders using anabolic steroids are well known, although wise bodybuilders use them prudently so as not to endanger their health. Similarly, testosterone increases metabolic activity throughout the body, and particularly in the penis. Question: Can above-normal levels prudently administered for limited periods of time make a size difference in your penis? In professional bodybuilding, a significant muscular enhancement results; therefore, an extrapolated hypothesis would suggest the answer is probably yes in penis enhancement, provided testosterone use is coupled with penis exercises. We won’t know for certain until a significant number of men try this under an MD’s supervision. While, hypothetically, prudent periodic use of testosterone cream supplement applied directly on the penis (using the professional body building model) may cause additional growth, there are negatives to balance out. You must also note that unsupervised abuse of testosterone can lead to hypogonadism or testicular shrinkage (remember feedback mechanism of your body) and male pattern baldness for starters.
PENIS SUPPLEMENTATION: IS IT FOR YOU?
The use of penis enlargement pills, penis supplements, and bioidentical testosterone is, I suspect, likely to be experimented with as it has been in professional bodybuilding, and there are those who are risk takers in efforts to push the envelope of sexual development. Remember that the best starting position is optimum health and sexuality, obtained through nutrition, prudent nutrient supplementation (vitamins, minerals, etc.), cardiovascular exercise, weight training and/or regular sports activity.
In my view, it is wise to use testosterone only after you reach an age where MD-supervised medical testing determines a deficiency has occurred, and only if your physical health permits the use of this hormone. Professional bodybuilders have used anabolics for limited durations for decades, and coupled with great advances in the equipment, this has resulted in substantive “success.”
In conclusion, if I were a young man and knew what I know now, I would avoid the use of any hormone and maintain a healthful life regimen. If I were a young man and did not know what I know now, I might be tempted to push the envelope and prudently experiment with bioidentical testosterone. I hope this has shed some light on a very provocative subject.
