    High shbg

    So my bloods are improving but one thing that still is really high is SHBG.

    Anyone know some ways to lower this? Or any ideas why it's so high? Mine is top of range.

    So far what I've read is boron helps with lowering it and also taking care of the liver?

    Also lowering cortisol? Ori Hofmekler told me that when cortisol is high SHBG goes high and ties up free T, immobilizing it.

    For cortisol, I take a gram of vitamin C after my workouts and usually another gram before bed.

    Grab Avena Sativa http://amzn.to/2BJWN2P will lower SHBG. I would take it every other day along with your herb cycle.

    It used to be on my list of herbs to cycle about six or seven years ago, but I left it off for more potent ones. This one does a very good job of doing what you want.

    i have the same problem 1128 (300-800) T levels but 45% (37%-105%) FAI (free androgen Index)
    so very high T levels but very low free T due to high SHBG 66 (15-40).
    Please tell me if any thing helps you in this department.
    Do you Take Tongkat ali ? its lowers SHBG but only potent extracts like from LEH or Pusak bumi.
    i will order some in the future when i have enough money.
    But if you can try it, Please report afterward.
    sorry for my english, Asian

    You can also check out this for high SHBG: Avena Sativa Depending on how out of range it is, you can dose it daily, or several times per week until you feel it is under control. Use this along with your normal herb rotation scheme.

    I had high SHBG too. It's most likely because of really high cortisol. Meditation and ashwagandha help a lot particularly with this.
