    high SHBG


    are there any supple or even drugs that can lower SHBG ?\
    I don't like supple that contain the stinging nettles like Activate X , it also blocks DHT ( important hormone )..

    You could give free test a try. It doesn't contain nettle.

    Here’s a little of the “techie” stuff about how it works:
    FREE TEST positively alters 7 homeostatic mechanisms of action that effect free and total testosterone output:
    Contains a natural suicide inhibitor of aromatase, and will improve the Testosterone : Estrogen (T:E) profile while concurrently increasing testosterone levels
    Increases NO/cGMP levels, which leads to increases in lutenizing hormone (LH) and greater endogenous testosterone production.
    Increases testicular Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) levels. High testicular ALCAR levels are conducive to heightened spermatogenesis.
    Lowers levels of cytokines IL-6, IL-1, and TNF-alpha- cytokines, which inhibit endogenous testosterone production by reducing levels of LH.
    Lowers cortisol levels and heightens Testosterone : Cortisol (T:C) ratio via competitive inhibition processes.
    Increases cAMP levels, which also increase LH levels.
    Influences/Increases androgen receptor (AR) binding via altering receptor electro-negativity.
    After 8 weeks of usage of FREE TEST, test subjects were observed to have increased levels of free testosterone ranging from 50-200% over baseline. Impressive results for any product – especially one with no negative side effects!

    Furthermore, the subjective feedback from the FREE TEST beta testers was nothing short of amazing. Within the first week users experienced feeling more motivated and assertive with shirt-splitting pumps, big-time strength increases, and revved up libido…all within the first week!

    Stinging nettle is not going to lower your overall DHT if you ask me. Think about it. Even if there is 5a-reductase inhibiting properties of Nettle it will balance out because:

    Nettle increases Free Testosterone which will increase the amount of testosterone that is converted to DHT, which in reality will probably raise DHT overall.

    Plus the plant DHT blockers over the years have turned out to do nothing at all in vivo. Think there is a new study in saw palmetto showing it does nothing

    There is nothing better out there than nettle for SHBG

    slightly off topic... but doesnt SHBG also bind estrogen?

    This is what I have always been worried about regarding these kinds of supplemens and if i remember correctly people were complaining over the years of activate giving them gyno....

    Is there any way to selectively unbind test and not est?

    Magic

    Stacking an AI with it might be an option or a resveratrol supplement...I doubt activate gave anyone gyno but higher estrogen levels could of aggravated gyno that was already developed
