Truffles as Pheromone putatives
07-21-2017 12:54 PM

I saw an article and a patent on truffles and how the olfactory response to truffle extract was to raise the endogenous testosterone levels.

Quote:https://www.google.com/patents/US8679507
Testosterone olfaction
US 8679507 B2
Abstract
A composition of an olfactory stimulus mechanism for stimulating the production of testosterone. A method of increasing the level of testosterone in an individual by smelling the truffle extract, causing androgens in the truffle extract to attach to the olfactory bulb in the individual, and inducing testosterone production. A method of preventing the onset of Alzheimer's disease in an individual by the individual smelling the truffle extract, and inducing testosterone production in the individual. A method of treating symptoms of menopause in a woman by the woman smelling the truffle extract, and inducing testosterone production in the woman. A method of treating andropause in a man by a man smelling the truffle extract, and inducing testosterone production in the man.

While these are all great....
there is also the question of how long does the effect set in after exposure and how long does it last. Truffles are expensive.

Quote:Testosterone Olfaction Secures Patent

Posted May 16th, 2014

On April 9, Dr. Moshe Shifrine was awarded a patent for the medicinal qualities of the truffle mushroom in TAroma™.

Thanks to a product invented by microbiologist Moshe Shifrine, Ph.D., I have learned a lot about testosterone in the last few months–including the likelihood that I have more now than when I met him, but more about that later.

Back in December I interviewed Dr. Shifrine about a new product he had brought to market called TAroma ™. In a little atomizer, truffle molecules are suspended in grain alcohol. The truffle molecules contain testosterone, and an individual inhales those molecules from a little spritz on the wrist. The theory is that in those of receptive age (the very elderly may not respond) the body will proceed to produce its own testosterone and other hormones as well. By verifying this fact and based on the resulting health benefits, Dr. Shifrine secured his patent.

We all know that hormones are important to well-being. They keep us lively, youthful, energetic, and attractive to one another. When they decline in middle age, there are all sorts of sad side effects: loss of libido and erectile dysfunction in men and hot flashes, night sweats, and sleeplessness among women. Both may suffer depression and mood swings. As well, there are less obvious problems afoot, including loss of bone and muscle mass. What I didn’t know until I met Dr. Shifrine is that research has begun to suggest a connection between decline in testosterone and the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease.

I also didn’t know that women have testosterone, although at our peek we produce only 1/20th of the amount men do. In the background paper on his invention, Dr. Shifrine explains that young men produce about 6 milligrams of testosterone per day, and healthy women produce 0.3 milligrams per day.

The development of TAroma™ has been a 27-year journey for Dr. Shifrine, who left his career as a professor of microbiology to try to grow the black truffle commercially. He was fascinated by the extraordinary properties of the fungus, including its unusual fragrance and the taste that enraptures. Alexandre Dumas wrote that it was impossible to define the nature of the truffle, and when it was itself interrogated, it answered simply “Eat us and praise the Lord.”

However, in all the years of his research, Dr. Shifrine discovered that the truffle contains testosterone, which may be key to its hallowed reputation. With TAroma™ on the market, he hopes to attract an investment that will enable him to continue researching its many potential benefits. In addition to mitigating the side effects of aging through hormone depletion, testosterone olfaction may also be useful in preventing depression, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease as well as Alzheimers.

Long interested in ways to enhance health naturally, I was intrigued by Dr. Shifrine’s findings and decided to do my own personal research. I ordered a two-month supply at Taroma™ online. (There is a special site for menopause issues.) I wasn’t having any health problems but did feel benefits, including more energy both intellectual and physical and what I would call greater emotional sensitivity. I haven’t been tested, but maybe a higher testosterone level accounts for my new combativeness on the subject of climate change. (See previous post.) It is probably also a benefit in building muscle and bone mass at the gym. If I start getting hairy, I’ll suspend the regimen.

This product brings up the subject of how each of us approaches health, and I committed long ago to optimize mine in the hope of going the distance in good form. A healthy diet, exercise, and an interest in alternative medicine have all been very helpful, and so far, so good. I’m fit and taking no prescriptions. It seems that when you commit to health, opportunities to enhance it continually come up, and I recognized Dr. Shifrine’s product as such.

Coincidences often sharpen the focus on an interest, and just recently a number of articles have appeared about the dangers in supplementing testosterone through pharmaceuticals. In that case, a man is ingesting the hormone instead of trying to stimulate the development of his own through TAroma™.

I looked up the potential side effects of testosterone as a drug, and they are pretty scary: nausea, vomiting, headache, oily skin, hair loss, acne, mood changes, trouble sleeping, symptoms of liver disease, and edema that could lead to heart failure. Brother. Pharmaceuticals can be so powerful for ill as well as good.

Everybody has to make their own decisions, of course, but my experience with the effect of TAroma™ has been very pleasant. It makes me think that Dr. Shifrine has provided an important option for those with relevant health issues. The most likely candidates in that group are those whose imaginations will be stimulated by all the ways in which the homely little black truffle has enchanted humanity for thousands of years. The mind is such a powerful thing, especially when it opens. And maybe the truffle has a new message through TAroma™: “Sniff us and praise the Lord.”

Royal Jelly from bees also is supposed to contain testosterone. Perhaps, this would explain why the queen bee who only dines on Royal Jelly grows to a greater size than the typical worker bee.

I've been thinking about this for some time. An interesting quote from Basenotes has intrigued me for months now. Of course, truffles are very expensive, and tincturing can be a lengthy process:

"I find that fresh truffles, especially those coming from the Perigord region in France (black winter truffles) and Alba truffles (white winter truffles), are the most pheremonic substances I know, even more than oud or authentic musk."

In addition, there are only two fragrances in the world that definitely contain real truffle tincture. Truffles being one of the most expensive ingredients in the world (not to mention most likely not being feasible for large-scale production), Tom Ford's Black Orchid and Noir de Noir almost certainly would not contain the real deal. You can find the two fragrances I'm speaking of below:

Researching subjects before posting is important. Sometimes we propagate and even start myths because of "what we heard" from someone with no knowledge of the subject.

Royal jelly is composed of 67% water, 12.5% crude protein, including small amounts of many different amino acids, and 11% simple sugars (monosaccharides), also including a relatively high amount (5%) of fatty acids. The main acid is the 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid (10-HDA) (about 2 - 3%). It also contains many trace minerals, some enzymes, antibacterial and antibiotic components, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine ( vitamin B6) and trace amounts of vitamin C,[2] but none of the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_jelly

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_jelly

I agree...please read carefully and research more extensively before trying to disprove my assertion. Notice the wording that I had used 'supposedly' if you look at my post. The supposition was culled from a work by the famous Dr James Balch MD, not my assumption. Of course, Balch could be wrong. His book is pictured here:

https://books.google.pl/books/about/Pres...edir_esc=y

Though I am not sure if you can read the exact paragraph related to RJ.


Moreover, wiki articles (like you quoted) though at times useful are not always reliable or exhaustive. Therefore, not sacrosanct. Wiki even warns you of it here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:...le_sources

Let's look at the NIH US National library of Medicine:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3499288/

Quote from article:
"An RJ diet induced higher testosterone (T) content ... " as it implies in animals.

also:
" It may also modulate sex hormones in humans. "

The article also took into consideration the transformation of DHEA into Test in the group of volunteers who were fed RJ.

Quote from article: " Regarding DHEA-S, T and E2, analyses by gender were also done because the normal range of these hormones was quite different between the sexes. "

and "According to analysis by gender, the change of log T/DHEA-S ratio in men was significantly higher in the RJ group "

and ".....RJ did not promote iron metabolism or hemoglobin synthesis but stimulated erythropoiesis or prolonged the lifespan of erythrocytes. The most probable reason is acceleration of erythropoiesis by testosterone which increased in serum in the present study. Testosterone is an anabolic steroid and has been used to treat several types of anemia. "

Of course, the study also has analytical data in the form of graphs which show the T/DHEA data changes while supplementing RJ.

So, although even Balch may have been wrong as to whether RJ actually contains Test or not...this study as well as others (3 others have been done according to this study...though some on lipid metabolism,asthenozoospermia and other aspects ) may suggest that ingestion RJ tends to support endogenous test synthesis.

OF course, if a patient were seriously hypogonadal...I wouldn't rely upon RJ to reestablish healthy levels. The situation would require exogenous administration as the most rapid and reliable means. Of course, the solution is not without potential side effects over time as much medical literature has already shown.

In contrast, RJ has very little potential for deleterious effects to the patient. In cases where hypogonadism is not serious, RJ along with other natural measures might offer a safe alternative to optimize substandard hormonal levels.

In conclusion, even if RJ may not contain test (albeit it was always understood to be relatively small) it appears from scientific tests that RJ might help boost/modulate hormonal levels including testosterone in humans.

Royal jelly is a milky secretion produced by worker honey bees. It typically contains about 60% to 70% water, 12% to 15% proteins, 10% to 16% sugar, 3% to 6% fats, and 2% to 3% vitamins, salts, and amino acids. Its composition varies depending on geography and climate.

Understood. However, listmate...did you even bother to read my post or the study that I have cited?

I understand your point. You are disputing that RJ contains any testosterone whatsoever. Many sources say that it does, however most agree that the amount is miniscule. Therefore, it is of course unlikely to add testosterone exogenously to one's systemic amount.

Rather, as demonstrated by the study that I cited RJ has proven to raise endogenous production in human test subjects by a meaningful amount.

Please google 'royal jelly contains testosterone' and read several articles.

I read all of your posts my friend.

I agree with you that royal jelly produces a strong chemical reaction in bees and humans.

Royal Jelly and Testosterone – What Do The Studies Say?

RJ does in fact contain testosterone – not a booster or mimetic, but traces of the actual hormone [2]. The reason for this may be due to the fact that pollen itself contains small amounts of testosterone, or even that RJ comes from the salivary glands of worker bees.
