Revivarant to raise testosterone levels
Apr 28, 1999

I have heard of Revivarant enhancing resistance training progress by making the body naturally produce testosterone. Literature on Revivarant statess to take it a bedtime. It also says do not take with other medication. It contains Furanone di-hydro. Is there any truth to the claims? Would this be a way to combat wasting?

Response from Dr. Fisher

Sorry but I have never even heard of revivarant of furanone di-hydro. The only thing I know that raises testosterone levels is testosterone. DHEA or androstenedione (Mark McGuire's favorite "supplement") might raise testosterone levels but only modestly. Alvan Fisher, M.D.
