Massularia Acuminate, a herbal ingredient, has recently been introduced to the market. Although it has been relatively unknown, there is not much data or science to support the ingredient. Also, what can we learn from its limited studies. Massularia Acuminate’s marketing claims that it is an androgenic herbal supplement that can be used as a prohormone or steroid in the body. However, very little information is available. I will review the literature to discuss the data and what it might mean for building muscle. Although one study did show Massularia Acuminate might be androgenic, it is misleading as many countries incorrectly label it as such. Massularia Acuminate’s effect is more like that of the herb Tibullus in its suggested mechanism. It is supposed to increase testosterone production and effects. This subtle distinction has profound effects on the body.
True androgenic herbs will have the opposite effect to these herbs. Massularia Acuminate does not have any merit. It is more of a testosterone booster than an actual androgenic herbal extract. This study has a problem because it was performed in rats. The effective dose for humans is between 2200 mg at the low end, and 8500mg at high end. Massularia Acuminate supplements are often very low-dosed. Massularia Acuminate is a poor choice as a testosterone booster, especially when compared to other testosterone-boosting agents such as anti-estrogenic herbs or d-aspartic acids. It is not going to have the same effect as prohormones or anabolic steroids as Massularia Acuminate as a testosterone booster. It does have one study that suggests it might increase testicular activity. However, it is not a good option for a testosterone booster. If you are looking to get better results, prohormones and other true androgenic herbs such as Tinospora may be a better choice.
ATD has only shown an increase in testosterone in the human range 900ng/dl, and this is not enough to build significant muscle with comparative supplements. Tinospora is the only herb that has been proven to have real TESTOGEN effects. It is referenced against DHT, and is comparable in strength to hydroxytestosterone. Massularia Acuminate, a testosterone boosting agent, is good for older men and people with low testosterone. However it does not seem to be able to build muscle. This, along with the requirement for 28000mg of the substance means that it will not likely be strong enough to cause an effect in a supplement. This herb has an interesting property. it can be used as an anti-bacterial oral agent. Massularia Acuminate is thought to be a good herb for tooth decay. In fact, this is the most common use of this herb.
