I came across this study and found it rather interesting.

And this chart in particular.

Thoughts? 43% increased T in rats.

Cool! I drink it daily!

Combined with tongkat Ali and Nettle root low testosterone becomes a non issue.

Also beneficial for prostate health.

The graphs (and human part of the study) were using a combination of Dandelion and Rooibos, not Rooibos alone. 

 

The paper doesn't specify in which proportion the two substances were mixed or the details of the extraction process, so as written it is impossible to reproduce.

 

The men treated with the combination didn't have their testosterone tested (only rats did) so I can only assume that the change of testosterone in humans was too insignificant to be publishable - why else not publish it?  The terated men still had very significant negative quality of life scores - their QoL scores became just about 1/5th less negative than before.

Check out Onion and Holy Basil.

The problem with lots of onion is no-one of the opposite sex (or not) will want to come near you!  :)
D-limonene should fix that.

Re the limonene, do you reffer to lemon oils ability to release the bonding hormone (oxytocin)? :)

Nope, but sounds interesting!   :)
References?

I found that it may kill DMSO, Garlic, Onion BO:

And people that tried it found that it does work as can be confirmed by later posts in that thread.
I'm damn proud of that find!   :)

 

And here's an onion thread I found in the same search:
