Tambien quiciera comprar tu libro de la testosterona, lo venden en Mexico? gracias por tu ayuda. un fuerte abrazo.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Do not take any of those supplements that claim to increase testosterone. They are bogus, not proven by research in humans (most data is in rats), can elevate liver enzymes and decrease kidney function. If you think you have low testosterone, talk to your doctor about getting a blood test to measure it.

There are natural ways to increase testosterone by 20-30%. You may want to read this article: How to Increase T Naturally
