“Like cures like” is a medical doctrine dating back to the early middle ages. For example, the idea that penis-shaped chili peppers can help mens’ libidos, or that flowers resembling a woman’s vagina can improve fertility.
Modern science has shown “like cures like” isn’t always accurate, but has also found it to be surprisingly on-point for certain plants and conditions. For example: pine pollen to enlarge your penis.
Pine pollen is basically tree semen. And it can help with your, well…um…wood.
From flaccid hang to fully erect size, pine pollen can help you grow your penis naturally, without drugs carrying hazardous side effects, and while avoiding surgery.
Here’s how it works.
Remember earlier when I said that pine pollen is basically tree spooge? That’s an oversimplification, but it’s on the money because pine pollen contains mega-doses of tree hormones.
Many of those hormones are analogs of male sex hormones important to your sexual health.
Not only that, but they’re close enough to your sex hormones that they mimic or stimulate the effects of four key hormones related to penis size: androstenedione, androsterone, DHEA, and testosterone (1).
Researchers believe the presence of these plant hormones is why pine pollen has been a traditional anti-aging, energy, and male fertility treatment for thousands of years.
It delivers a healthy dose of hormones to bodies just as they are reaching an age where they’re not producing enough on their own.
But the fact they contain hormones is only half of why they’re important. The other half — Plant hormones — is equally important.
You see, your body is built to produce only as much sex hormone as it needs.
Various detection mechanisms notice when you’re low on (for example) testosterone, and send messages to your endocrine system to have you produce more.
That’s fine and dandy when your body is producing enough testosterone, but if it’s settled into a baseline of low testosterone, it’s a different story.
If you simply add testosterone to your body (for example with medical hormone therapy), your body naturally produces less of the stuff because it detects the artificially increased testosterone levels.
The plant hormones in pine pollen make your body respond as though it was full of the good stuff, but without triggering the processes that make it produce less testosterone and other male sex hormones.
This is important because low levels of male sex hormones (especially testosterone) can lead to hypogonadism, which means a shrinking of your gonads.
It’s one of the most common causes of age-related penis shrinkage (2), and a contributing cause to smaller penises in younger men.
Everything I just said about male plant hormones is equally true of female plant hormones, except where you get them in your body.
If you consume plant-based estrogens (a/k/a phytoestrogens) it has the impact of estrogen treatments on your body, without your body knowing to balance its presence by producing more testosterone.
This can lead to low-testosterone hypogonadism, plus a host of other health problems.
That’s something you want to avoid.
Trouble is, the modern natural environment is just full of phytoestrogens from sources like (3):
And that’s without mentioning the various pollens in your air every spring, which carry their own doses of phytoestrogens.
So you fight fire with fire, by loading your body with phytoandrogens (that’s plant-based male sex hormones) to balance testosterone with estrogen in your system.
That way you avoid the hormone-imbalance issues like a smaller penis, and other related issues with your sexual health.
Okay, gentlemen, let’s be honest. None of us really mind having a slightly smaller flaccid penis if we can “rise to the occasion” and pack a good size when it’s “business time.”
Guess what? Pine pollen helps with exactly that. It helps to super-charge your erections in three different ways.
You’ve read in the rest of this article how pine pollen helps improve your testosterone levels.
In case you’d never heard it before, your testosterone levels are the key component in your body’s hormonal response to sexual arousal.
If your penis and testes are the engine of sex, testosterone is the fuel. More testosterone means larger, stronger, better erections.
And that means a larger penis when it matters most.
L-Arginine is an important amino acid your body turns into nitric oxide (among other things).
Nitric oxide is vital to the blood flow part of getting and maintaining erections (4) because it improves blood flow by dilating your blood vessels.
Low nitric oxide (NO) from things like smoking or low blood pressure is a leading cause of health- and lifestyle-caused erectile dysfunction. Remember:
Viagra started out as a blood pressure medication.
Pine pollen boosts your NO without resorting to side-effect-heavy, expensive medications.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is one of your body’s most important repair tools.
It helps to remove free radicals, oxidative stress, and other age-related damage from your cells and help you resist the effects of aging.
All of the things SOD helps to repair or slow down can have a negative impact on your erectile health. It’s one of the reasons men start having issues with their erections as they get older.
Bottom line: more SOD = less age-related damage to your cells. Less age-related damage = better, longer-lasting, larger erections.
One final thing to keep in mind. Pine pollen will help improve the size of your penis, but won’t do a very good job of it on its own.
You’ll want to combine it with a consistent penis enlargement exercise routine like jelqing or a penis pump.
Look at it this way. If all you did to bulk up your muscles was to take a cocktail of supplements you bought at GNC, you might see a few gains but you wouldn’t get much benefit.
It’s when you combine those supplements with a systematic exercise routine that the magic happens.
It’s that way with pine pollen, and any other supplement you might take to improve the size of your penis.
I recommend taking 5-8 grams a day, supplemented with other lifestyle activities to boost testosterone and regular penis enlargement exercises.
