Need Help Regarding SHBG

  1. Need Help Regarding SHBG


    Hey guys,

    Been a lurker for many months and finally decided to sign up. I had a question i hoped one of you could help me with.

    I can't seem to make sense of why lowering SHBG would be a good thing...

    SHBG binds to T and to Estradiol meaning that if nettle root lowered SHBG wouldn't it raise both T and E levels? Or am I wrong about raising E?

    Is it something to do with SHBG having a higher affinity for T?

    Thanks in advance

    increases biot T so you body uses testosterone more efficently
    When given TRT less T is needed
