In both men AND women, one of the main conditions for having optimal sex drive and desire is to have optimal levels of the hormone, Testosterone. Remember, that both men and women have this hormone, but it’s much higher in men.
Unfortunately, as we age, your anti-aging “youth” hormones decline. For men, this is primarily your testosterone levels.
The bad news is that your testosterone starts dropping as early as your mid 20’s
By age 40, you’re barely producing 50% of your testosterone… which means1:
- Lower testosterone
- Decrease sex drive & libido
- Smaller & weaker muscles.
- More belly fat
- Increase in health problems — cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, joint pain, memory loss, etc.
However, the good news is that you can slow down and quickly REVERSE this naturally, by utilizing the correct form and dosage of Avena Sativa Extract, especially when combined with a few other key herbs and vitamins.
And YES, this works for women as well.
What Is It?
Avena Sativa is the scientific name for the grass commonly known as oats. It’s been used medicinally since the middle ages.
How Does It Work?
Avena Sativa works in two primary ways.
Increase In Free Testosterone
As you may already know, testosterone is the primary hormone that controls your libido, “drive”, mental happiness, increase muscle, decrease fat and an overall improved sense of well-being.
Unfortunately, over 95% of your “total” testosterone is “bound” to various proteins in your blood. So most of it is “inactive”.
Thus, only 5% or less is “free” to travel around your body and work its magic.
Think of your “total” testosterone as your GROSS income and your “free” testosterone as your NET income — the money you get to keep after all your expenses and taxes.
Thus, what we care most about is increasing your “free” testosterone levels, which is what Avena Sativa can help with.
Increase In LH Levels
Secondly, it helps increase your LH levels. Luteinizing hormones are released by the pituitary gland and tell the testicles to produce more testosterone.
So the end results are higher testosterone with more free testosterone, at the same time! – win/win!
Side-Effects & Warnings
Even though Avena Sativa is natural, there are some “warnings” you should know about before using this ingredient.
Problem #1 – Use Extract Only
Most Avena Sativa on the market is made of dead “root” or “powder” or even “drops”. These forms are cheap and worthless. There are no active ingredients in it. This is why it doesn’t work for most people.
You want to use only the EXTRACT form, one of the highest and most potent being 100:1, extract to powder ratio.
Problem #2 – Your Body Adapts & It Stops Working
The second problem I’ve seen over and over again is when using only ONE ingredient to achieve a health goal — such as Avena Sativa in today’s example…. Is that your body will quickly adapt to it.
Thus, it stops working after a couple of weeks.
Unfortunately, as your body adapts, you have to use a higher dosage in which after a few weeks your body adapts AGAIN and now you have to increase the dosage even more.
This gets very expensive and can lead to negative side effects eventually.
However, if you use a “stacking” tactic – which I’ll talk about in a minute, you’ll dramatically reduce the adaptation and improve the effectiveness, WITHOUT having to increase the dosage.
Problem #3 – Negative Conversions
The final problem is that as you age, your body creates various enzymes which convert testosterone to “negative” hormones, such as estrogen, prolactin, DHT, cortisol, etc.
All of these “conversions” DECREASE your positive testosterone and INCREASE these negative hormones.
- Estrogen makes you fat.
- Prolactin reduces the frequency of erections.
- DHT causes hair loss and prostate problems
- Cortisol is the stress hormone and directly DECREASES testosterone.
We don’t want these “negative” conversions.
What you want to do is increase your testosterone and KEEP IT HIGH, by preventing and stopping the conversions to these “negative” hormones.
And to accomplish this goal, we’ll need to use other ingredients which help BLOCK these conversions, naturally – and I’ll show you how in a minute.
How To Make Avena Sativa Work Better
To make Avena Sativa work better, you want to “stack” it with other complementary natural ingredients which will help
- Increase testosterone – both total and free.
- Reduce “adaptation”, so you get better results with lower dosages
- Prevent “conversions” to negative hormones, so you can KEEP your testosterone high.
And to do this, you should take Avena Sativa with synergistic ingredients such as:
- Fenugreek, Tongkat Ali, Maca, Stinging Nettle and Tribulus extract, for optimal testosterone levels.
- DIM and Selenium to reduce the female hormone, estrogen
- Vitamin C and Ashwagandha to reduce the stress hormone, cortisol
- Vitex Agnus to reduce the female hormone, prolactin
- Zinc to reduce the hair loss and prostate problems hormone, DHT
The special synergy between these correct “stack of ingredients”, creates a much safer and more effective solution.
It’s like 1+1+1 = 6 (not 3!) You use less, and you get more.
The “stack” saves you money and gives you better, safer results, for a longer amount of time.
Summary & Your Best Option
So Avena Sativa works by increasing your total and “free” testosterone levels.
To prevent “adaptation” and “conversions” to negative hormones, you’ll want to “stack” it with other synergistic ingredients.
In the end, you’ll get better results, it’s safer for you and you’ll save money at the same time.
Don’t worry, I’ve simplified all of this for you.
