  • RE: Sulforaphane Increases Testosterone which Decreases Type 2 Diabetes

    I suggest the basis of these findings is increased testosterone.

    Low testosterone may be the basis of the symptoms called type 2 diabetes. It is known that sulforaphane increases testosterone. (Testosterone is not mentioned in this article, at least not in the material available at Science Translational Medicine.)
