    Avena Sativa


    A High dose of Avena Sativa or Divanil, which is proven to be more effective at lowering SHBG?

    I think Divanil. you should stack them though. What Extract on Avena are you using? Like Ratio?

    thats good, also why not just stack them? I will never run a test boosting stack without Divanil again

    Divanil. I have yet to see clinicals that show a substantial lowering SHBG profile in human subjects with Avena.

    You have "clinicals" showing that divanil lowers SHBG? It may competitively bind to it but I really haven't seen studies that suggest it's MOA is via production inhibition.

    I know Robboe is a big proponent of avena and its effects on SHBG so PM him.

    A CURSE! A Curse on your house!!!!

    Guys, there is no evidence AT ALL of avena sativa having any impact on SHBG.

    I've used both 95% extracts of Nettle and Avena. Avena at about 100mgs makes we want to hump my office door and only thing that puts pimples on my shoulders.

    Worth a shot...

    There is some research done by a company that marketed an avena product....

    I would take the above evidence over a couple of in house blood tests..
