    Let me ask what may be a dumb question. Why are the morning erections always the ones used to gauge whether a product is working and if e2 levels are under control? I am on TRT and even before I got on, I can't remember any time in my life not waking up with an erection. I wouldn't walk around thinking about sex like I used to, but always a morning wood.

    Is it really a way that can be used with any accuracy to determine if libido is raising and hormone levels are under control?

    Ofcourse it's not an accurate way to judge but when you come off some harsh stuff and are shut down, you normally dont even have morning woodies. That happened to me when I came off of Superdrol. What the morning woodie will tell you is that you are not totally screwed up, thats about it. You may still have test and e2 issues but not cataclysmic ones.

    Ok, I understand that when you use an example like coming off of a harsh supplement, but I see it used constantly for judging the effectiveness of libido or test raising supps.

    My question is more geared towards, why is the morning wood the one always used as the measure? It seems like it would be the most inaccurate.

    I think if it's being used for the effectiveness of supps it's wrong. IMO the morning wood is the fire wall. If that's down, you have big issues.

    I'm not trying to sugar coat anything. If it's not working I'm gonna say it. But if it's having a positive influence on my libido then I'm going to share that

    Im in day 6. Although my libido is up a little, its hard to tell if its because if the Adex that is knocking down my estrogen (that were previously at 250), or if its the DAA or the Bulbine.
    You know last year, i jad been off cycle for 8 weeks and I was taking a DAA called Testosterone Conversion Factor by Primal Muscle (which is now defunct), Prolactrone, Unleashed and my libido was insatiable. I actially broke my record and jerked off 7 times and I was 43!!
    Then I went on a heavy Test and Deca cycle with no AI and everything went to ****. Even though my estrogen and and prolactine levels went back to normal, I havent been the same. Oh, Im not jn bad shape for my age sexually. During this cycle I had my 4 lays in a day here and there ( when u get to my age thats something to brag about) but nothing like that one stint last year.
    So I was kind of hoping Bulbine would do that for me again. Am I expecting too much?

    I've been on DAA for 3 weeks now, so you're saying I should stop?

    IIRC it does matter. Too much bulbine at one time can have a negative effect. Thats why its recommended to dose 8-12hrs apart

    I don't notice any difference in dosing 700mg at once, or 350mg in the am, 350 in the pm.

    I posted up in the Tongkat Ali thread, but I am absolutely astonished at how this stuff works. I've cut just about every supplement and herb out besides noots over the years because I'm over it and know most do nothing. I am not going to pitch anything yet, but early indications is that this is real freaking deal with libido. I already have a decent-good libido, so I am not coming from any ED issues or anything.

    Just to make clear, are you saying Bulbine is the real deal (libido-wise), Tongkat Ali is the real deal. or both.

    I've not yet tried Bulbine.

    I am saying TongKat, and the only reason I brought it up in this thread was for awareness for those looking for libido increasing supplements to possibly add to their Bulbine stacks.

    No, I appreciate it.

    Is there a specific product you have found most beneficial and would recommend?

    I tried a brand earlier in the year by Source Naturals and didn't see much other than a little energy boost. I bought it because it was cheap and didn't read up on TongKat and the importance of ratios and mg dosage. The stuff is expensive and once you read up on where it is sourced and how much it takes to make the concentrations that are effective, it becomes clear as to why. It also made me realize why I wasn't going to be able to cut corners to pay less because it was going to be inferior.

    I ended up buying one called SD-200, which is 400mg at a 200:1 ratio. All studies that I found showing the libido and strength increasing properties were done at 800-1000mg, so you have to take it twice a day. I bought this one because the two guys I know that take it swear up and down by it and it has an overwhelming amount of positive reviews. I just wish it cost less because you cycle it with 3 on 2 off or 5 on and 4 off according to most of the reviews and that will have a bottle last only about 6 weeks. In any case, if I continue to feel like I do now and want to walk through walls, then I guess I'll just be finding a way.

    Read up on the ones that have 200:1 ratio, which the strongest they come in. You may be able to find them with similar reviews and maybe a little cheaper pricing. I just went this route because of advice and to see if it was everything people were saying. I honestly think the price is the only reason it isn't one of the most popular supplements.

    No, I am saying to just follow the recommendations of 1 pill 2x a day and to cycle. At least that is what I am doing.

    Again, we all know that herbals are hit or miss and that is why we discuss them to get experiences and make judgement calls on what to try.

    But if its dosed at 200:1 concentration per pill andte results are at 800-1000 than the recomended dose is too little.

    They are talking about total mg and with each tab being 400mg, 2x meets what was used in the studies. You are usually going to find concentrations of 50:1, 100:1, or 200:1. Also, most mg I have seen is 200-400. Obviously as the mg and concentration goes up, so does the price.
