I've read about various olfactory-related responses to testosterone before (mainly in ovulating women smelling it from men, etc), but this Dr. Moshe Shifrine has (apparently) discovered there is some kind of reaction in humans from (airborne) chemicals in black truffles to patent a Testosterone-boosting product off of it:

 

Patent info: http://www.prweb.com...web11738490.htm and http://www.freepaten...om/8679507.html

(# 8,679,507, "Testosterone Olfaction")

 

Facebook product page: https://www.facebook.com/TAromatherapy And don't miss an interesting newspaper article scan linked there: https://www.facebook...?type=1

 

Some related videos with the good doctor:

So, Pat, what do we think? Possible? BS? Wishful thinking?

rofl.... load of shit

Talk about bastardized extrapolations lol.

Another study (unpublished work by Shifrine) showed that pigs fed cultured truffle powder (i.e. French truffles grown in hydroponics and on grain) in their feed exhibited improved feed efficiency, significantly lowered feed consumption, significantly lowered fat, and increased leanness of carcasses.

The very low dose of 1 gram dried powdered cultured truffle per ton of feed suggested that the effect of the truffle was due through inhalation and not ingestion. This suggests a “testosterone response”. However, at the time of this study, testosterone had not been reported in scientific literature to be present in truffles. Androstenol, shown to be contained in truffles, on the other hand was isolated from pig testes by Prelog & Ruziaka (1944). It was later discovered in truffles and offered as an explanation for the ability of pigs to detect this hypogeous mushroom (Claus et al., 1981).

In 2006, Applicant discovered that, in addition to androstenol, the truffle culture produces testosterone, which might explain the ‘testosterone effect’ in pigs, and the reason truffles are reputed to have aphrodisiac potential. At the concentration of 1.7 μg of testosterone in a gram of dry weight of truffles (truffle powder, from truffles grown on grain), which is equivalent to ca. 6×1015 molecules, there are ample molecules to cover all androgen receptors in the nose. Since pigs are the best experimental animals for humans (Simon and Maibach, 2000) it is reasonable to extrapolate the data from the pig study to humans.

(unpublished work by Shifrine)


If this "unpublished" work was even credible.... I'd like to see the testosterone quantification data in comparison to the control group lol

yeah truffles contain pheromones which are steroidal but do not have hormonal activity
