Frequently Asked Questions and Articles on Men's Health

Can creatine increase your testosterone levels?
There is no convincing evidence that creatine can increase your testosterone levels.
Do herbal aphrodisiacs work?
It depends on the product touted to be an aphrodisiac, but some of them do apparently increase sexual desire; it is a relatively under-researched topic though, and we don't know why they increase sexuality.
