However, I would like to add to this response. Herbs that help to support good adrenal function is important for testosterone production. This would include herbs such a ginseng, licorice,and siberian ginseng. Nervine herbs are also indicated such as passion flower, skullcap, and valerian. Herbs that have a specific effect on testosterone levels via stimulating its production are flower and tree pollen and saw palmetto. As you can see this is a multiple leveled treatment protocol and it would be best to consult with a ocal herbalist for an individualized treatment program specific to your whole health picture.
