Onion Juice....the next Steroid? WTF
Onion Juice triples Testosterone levels
Think of a dirt-cheap vegetable you can buy at every greengrocers and supermarket. Put it in a juicer, give the juice to rats for three weeks, and watch their testosterone level rise by 314 percent. According to research done at Tabriz University in Iran, fresh onion juice raises testosterone levels as much as substances like nolvadex or clomid.
In Iran many men who have fertility problems can’t afford to buy medicine. That’s why Iranian researchers are looking for alternatives to medicines like and . Studies show that antioxidants can increase production of testosterone and sperm in the testes. Studies have also shown that onions contain strong antioxidants. So the researchers put two and two together and bought ordinary onions – Latin name Allium cepa – on the market. They peeled the onions and put them in a domestic juicer made by Tefal. The juice they got is what they used in their trials.
Their subjects were a group of 8-week-old male rats. Of these, 10 were given ordinary food for 20 days. [Control] Ten other rats got 0.5 g per kg bodyweight of onion
juice, which was pumped into their stomachs using a tube. Another 10 rats were given the same treatment, but got 1 g/kg bodyweight/day.
The table below shows that after 20 days the onion juice had improved the sperm quality and increased the concentration of LH, FSH and testosterone in the rats’ blood.
Malondialdehyde is a mutagenic substance that is produced when free radicals damage the unsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes. The reduction in malondialdehyde concentrations that the researchers found indicates how the onion juice increases testosterone production: antioxidants in onion juice neutralise free radicals in the testes. The researchers suspect that the antioxidants in question are probably selenium compounds found in onions, and phenols such as quercetin and isorhamnetin [structural formulae shown above]. Isorhamnetin is also made in the body when enzymes convert quercetine with the help of S-adenosylmethionine.
The Iranian findings are not completely new. As long ago as 1967 an Egyptian researcher discovered that the testes of lab animals fed raw onion juice increase in size. At the moment there are quite a few animal studies which report that high doses of polyphenols like quercetin have a positive effect on the testes. But the effect of these is not as big as that of plain onion juice.

can I rub the onions directly on my sack, a homemade transdermal? Or just put some onions in the undies, its a 2fer: 1) onions increase test, 2) sack looks HUUUUGE

I am already checking this one out.... heaving down antioxidants and then checking test levels.
I'm not detox-ing on onion rats however, so I guess my efforts are a waste of time.
Transdermal rat - at least you don't ingest the ears, claws and eyes - you leave them sticking to your skin. Pagan Europe did this with bears/wolves (well fur anyway) - suspect they might have tried rats but found it didn't boost test: MrBig probably used a bear, MrSmaller used a wolf, MrSmallerStill a fox and you guys want rats?

so i wonder how many concentrated drops of onion juice would be the equivalent to what they used?
For me, the action IS the juice.

This was actually kind of already known, it is in the literature, but no company is going to sell onion powder so drink up!

Just got my juicer today... Day one of ginger/onion juice. My eyes teared for about 30 mins and I thought I was going to puke for 15 mins of that. but im alive and will be drinking another tomorrow.
PS ginger has been shown to be androgenic thats why i threw it in.
Dosing- ginger: 600mg/kg of bw onion:1g/kg is optimal but there is no way I am drinking over a pound of onion juice. Ill do 1-2 onions a day

Joking aside, I'm intrigued by this but did the rats smell like onions? Onion rat with garlic shampoo...hmm how much protien is in a rat?

i hope someone that's really bored runs a log of onion juice for 30+ days.
massive reps if someone is willing to put up smelling like this for a month.
i'll double the reps if you include rats....
