Supplements - Testosterone for Women

  • Herbal Testosterone Supplements: Herbs like maca, tongkat ali, rhodiola rosea, and catuaba bark are a great way to boost your low testosterone levels.

  • Natural Testosterone: Natural testosterone supplements are bioidentical to the testosterone made in your body. You can get natural testosterone supplements as a pill, cream, or gel.

  • Synthetic Testosterone: Synthetic testosterone supplements are available through your doctor. The most common pill is Estratest, which can cause a number of unwanted side effects.

  • DHEA: You can get this from your doctor or over the counter, and it can be used in either a cream or pill form. This supplement is bioidentical (opposed to synthetic).

Be sure to have your levels checked by your doctor in order to determine whether your testosterone levels are low or not. You don't want to take supplements to increase your testosterone level if your level is already normal.
