Pheromones and Testosterone: Up to 150% More Testosterone with Copulins
Pheromones are chemicals similar to hormones that humans, insects, and plants release in the air in response to various triggers. When a member of the same species smells a scent of the pheromone their neurocircuits, inflammatory system, immune system, endocrine system and behaviour can be significantly altered.
Pheromones were largely unknown outside the scientific world ever since their discovery, up until the pick-up artist (PUA) community made their use among men popular some years ago, by claiming that certain pheromones could be used to attract women.
And if you search any information about pheromones through Google, it’s almost certain that you’ll end up at some e-store which sells these so called “love potions”.
NOTE: Just like there are hundreds of different hormones in the body, there are also hundreds of different pheromones, with the exception that science knows much, much, much more about hormones than pheromones.
How do pheromones affect the body then? Well, there’s plenty studies that have looked at this already:
Pheromones, Testosterone, and Attraction
…And for one, what kind of a man (or a woman) needs – or lacks the dignity – to use pheromones to attract the opposite sex.
So, because of their ridiculousness, I never really cared about pheromones and their uses. They belonged to the “snake oil” category in my opinion.
That was, until two days ago, when I received an email from a reader, about certain pheromones and their effects on testosterone levels…
…Which eventually got me into looking for the actual evidence behind them. And what I found was very, very, very surprising. According to the scientific evidence, certain pheromones can significantly impact testosterone production, and the claim of them attracting the opposite sex might actually be true.
Bottom line: As much as I hate to admit it, pheromones can actually work, they can increase attraction in both sexes, and they can impact testosterone levels, negatively and positively.
The PUA creeps seem to be right when they claim that pheromones can be used as attractants, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s still incredibly ridiculous to lather yourself with exogenous androstenone in hopes of getting laid.
The most interesting fact however, is that copulins can actually increase testosterone levels by up to 150% almost instantly. And someone has literally gone ahead and started selling those copulins (affiliate link).
I truly hope they’re at least synthetically made.
