Detailed Product Description

Bulbine natalensis is a powerful ancient Zulu herb used as an aphrodisiac and as a performance enhancer.
There is folklore history in Zulu warrior culture of it being used in preparation of soldiers for battle, giving them strength, courage and the drive to win. In later years scientists rediscovered Bulbine natalensis and tested extracts of the herb on rats at the University of Fort Hare (South Africa). The results were phenomenal: a 350% rise in testosterone was shown over a few weeks. Bodybuilding forums went wild with reports of an African herb that could propel testosterone to sky-high limits and that sparked the beginning of the use of  Bulbine natalensis in many pro-testosterone and performance enhancing products. Afrigetics Botanicals Bulbine natalensis extract was made under the guidance of an internationally recognized bodybuilding coach as an ingredient for some of the leading sport supplements companies in the USA and Europe and this is the very same ingredient you will find in our Bulbine Max 5:1: pure Bulbine natalensis freeze-dried extract.

A two week informal trial was conducted on a 38 year old male using a daily dosage of Bulbine extract.
The subject was a healthy 38 year old male sportsman weighing 78kg and a preliminary assessment of the subject by Dr Reinette Vos found him to be fit and healthy; blood tests revealed no abnormalities. The subject was not using any other supplements in his training other than Bulbine natalensis PE.

The subject was asked to supplement 2 vegecaps each containing 360mg Bulbine PE (720mg total) daily before bed and continued to take them from a period starting 13 Dec 2010 to 31 Dec 2010. Blood tests were conducted once at the beginning of the trial and once at the end of the trial and then 3 periods of roughly 2 to 3 weeks (19 Jan 2011, 9 Feb 2011, 24 Feb 2011) and finally on the 1 April 2011. Oestradiol was also tested during the period after the initial supplementation phase.

Total Testosterone 13.0 17.7 17.9 16.8 13.5 11.3
SHBG 25.7 28.2 28.3 27.2 26.9 28.2
Free testosterone 301 407 412 385 307 245
*Oestradiol Not tested 88 129 124 73 Not tested

* Subjects average Oestradiol without supplements assumed to be between 70 and 90


The initial results suggests that total and free testosterone were both increased by the use of supplementing Afrigetics Botanicals Bulbine PE by about 35% in a period of 2 weeks. The conclusion was that there was sufficient preliminary evidence to show that Bulbine PE by Afrigetics Botanicals could in fact raise testosterone (TT and FT) by around 35% in about 2 weeks.
