  • Mushrooms. "Men's health," everyone's health

    In my almost year long search to increase my testosterone, I've found assorted suggestions on men's forums helpful. All based on actual, like, you know, science. Peer reviewed research. I added Vitamins C and E, boron, and zinc to my regimen. And red light therapy. Yes, your imagination is probably correct. I definitely found myself, um, "younger." But nothing like my experience with mushrooms. And then I discovered how incredible they are as a food, completely aside from being an aromatase inhibitor.

    Aromatase is an enzyme that, sadly, converts hard earned, valuable testosterone to estrodiol, precursor to estrogen. So if aromatase is inhibited, more T for me. There are pharmaceutical inhibitors that are used in breast cancer therapies. And there is a strong link between eating mushrooms and diminished hormone enhanced breast cancers.

    Warning: Some personal info coming up. But there isn't any other way to measure or identify results.

    Anyway, how many mushrooms can one eat every day? Then I got the idea of drying them and pulverizing them in the blender. Now, I just add the powder to assorted foods I'm eating. I wasn't very scientific in measuring, but probably between a half tsp to a whole one most days. I definitely experienced changes, the decades of normal male decline rolling back over a two week period. Seventy one going on thirty one. I swear. Just in time for a beautiful, much younger woman walking through my door and into my life. No pills necessary.

    I started wondering if there wasn't something else going on besides aromatase inhibition. After all, at the most, AI will just prevent destruction of whatever T I have, which is low per tests. It doesn't make testosterone. I started wondering if it is a natural PDE5 inhibitor, which is what all the little blue pill types are. There are several known natural ones, although not terribly effective. So I started researching mushrooms...................holy moly! What a food source! Besides being low calorie, flavorful, and gluten free (that's a joke), helpful in hypertension, high cholesterol, cancer intervention, and a whole long list of benefits, scientifically proven. Check out this long list of peer reviewed articles:

    So, eat more mushrooms! Male or female! (You, not the mushrooms!) So easy to eat a lot of as dehydrated. Cheap! BTW, I got a free little bottle of stuff to make better burgers. First ingredient, mushroom powder!

    OTB, first, congrats on rediscovering the joy of being 31 again. I've known about the male-enhancing properties of mushrooms for several years now, and even decided to eat some raw.Not that I' male, but the old saw, what's sauce for the gander...! I have immediate access to 5 or 6 kinds, and mix them up just for various "benefits." But one I had to order in, just for its culinary benefits, was porcini mushroom, which has already been dried and pulverized into a fine powder. Mixing an ounce of it, a la Nom Nom Paleo, with kosher salt , red pepper flakes, black pepper and thyme is one of the best flavour enhancers I've ever used. It's so good that it is now offered commercially on the West Coast under Magic Mushroom label (no, not THAT kind!). But mushrooms also have lots of anti-cancer properties and at my age and with my genetics, cancer is an omnipresent if distant worry. So, I eat mushrooms frequently and don't worry. (Much)

      Paysan, I appreciate your comments and will come back to them. I've been very occupied; preparing at this moment for said woman (appreciating the mushrooms! ) and I celebrating our connection tonight.

        Love mushrooms, and even better I had these things called giant puffballs grow in my neighbors yard last year. I ate a whole bunch and I will be sporing for those and morels and a few others in the next few months and hope to keep doing it forever.
        These things grow easy. Look at how to sport for them. they can grow huge like the size of a football to near about 3-4' in diameter. I got 5-6 the size of a football. Delicious and quick to harvest albeit a bit bland, which is great, just throw on what you want to flavor it with.
        They make a good meat substitute, except, my vegetarian wife hates them. In general any meat sub does not appeal to live long vegetarians. Hence no tofu in India. We eat soy in small amounts, but as the puffed kind not as tofu. And they dont eat mushrooms either (atleast back in the 90's they didn't).

          I love puffballs, which grew in my past life in Ontario. I'd slice them up and fry in butter, with or w/o salt. MMmm. Dr Mercola's coulumn today was very appreciative of mushrooms, especially porcini for its anticancer properties. I eat it because I love the taste as a seasoning. Anything else is a bonus.

            Taking a breather while Kirsten has to work. Catching up on things.

            I knew I wasn't the first person to be aware of the many medical benefits of 'shrooms, but I wasn't sure how many of the few readers left here are.

            Some years ago I I went hiking with my daughters in the Colorado mountains. We found some goodly sized puffballs. We picked on and returning my ex-wife's house, we put it in her shower. We could just see her spying that and screaming. She was at work. Well, that thing started stinking so badly we couldn't keep it in the house!

            I just have to share my joy with my friends here: Kirsten and I are so in love. I honestly had become resigned to never having another relationship in my life, especially at my age. I could not only give a long list of reasons why she is top shelf quality as a human being, but also that she is beautiful and twenty years younger than me. Yee haw. Go mushrooms.

              Keep up the good work, OTB. Love is important at every age; don't let the youngsters brainwash you into thinking it is not.

                Not a chance. I am romantic to the core. I respect and love women for being the amazing creatures y'all are. Far more interesting than men. I have only two male friends, at least a half dozen female. After almost forty years of dating, I thought I had experienced every kind of attraction and connection. This one hit like my nearby Union Pacific locomotive hauling fast freight. I do so wish I could get THOSE other kind of Magic Mushrooms! So much fun, especially with sex.

                You are certainly on the right dietary paths.

                  Ah, the original and still ultimately unsurpassed Viagra pill: a younger woman. Used liberally in ancient days by every emperor, khan, and caesar.

                  Mushrooms look like penises, oysters look like testicles, and folk wisdom considers both to be aphrodisiacs. Could just be coincidence, but it's funny to think about.

                    No, the deal with oysters is that they look like labia.

                    I'll take a guess and say that not many women would want a penis that looked like a mushroom!

                      And it's the zinc in oysters that enhances the male experience, although the extra protein and vit C don't hurt.
