Testosterone biology

Some Ginseng supplement manufacturers are sloppy and thus Ginseng has a reputation for having contaminants, including lead and various pesticides.  Thus, buying only the best brands is definitely wise.  For example, Consumer Labs failed 45% of tested products in a recent review for either having insufficient ginsenosides or being contaminated. However, a number of brands passed Consumer Labs' analysis with flying colors.  Probably the best was  Solgar - Korean Ginseng Root Extract, 60 veggie caps which was not only contaminant-free but also had abundant ginsenoside content.

Testosterone makes you angry.  This is probably the most common myth about T. The reality is that there’s no concrete evidence that high testosterone levels cause anger and violent outbursts. In fact, the opposite might be true; low testosterone, not high T, is what causes anger and irritability in men. As discussed above, having low T levels has been linked to depression in men and it just so happens that two of the primary symptoms of depression in men are increased angry outbursts and irritability. So if you’re chronically angry, you might be depressed, and you might be depressed because you have low T. As I mentioned above, I became  less  moody and irritable during my experiment, which I attribute to the boost in my testosterone levels.

ATHLETES:   Overtraining can seriously affect performance.  Researchers have identified several short term key markers that result from overtraining, including "impaired anaerobic lactic acid perforance and a reduced time to exhaustion". [ 7 ] The same study discusses many other soon-to-follow issues including problems with uric acid levels, ammonia, creatine kinase, free testosterone/cortisol, growth hormone and so on. More subjective issues include excessively sore muscles and sleep and mood disorders.  Again, overtraining is real and leads to real physiological issues.
