Pine Pollen is Great for Women Too
In China, where pine pollen has been used for thousands of years, it is considered one of the beauty tonics for women. Yes, it can be used on your skin. Several of its compounds support both elastin and collagen. And taken internally, with its wide variety of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and more it’ll help support your health.
Many women get scared off when they see the word “testosterone”, not realizing that they too need this hormone, just in a lesser amount than men. Taking pine pollen, especially in powdered form, will not make you wake up with a mustache, deepen your voice, or sprout huge muscles.
The tinctured form, which concentrates and makes the phyto-androgens more bioavailability, is generally not recommended for women. That being said we have reports from a couple ladies, especially in post-menopausal years, that get great benefits from this.
Cell Wall Broken Pine Pollen
Like chorella, pine pollen has a hard shell on it. If this is not broken then the nutrition that is found in pine pollen will not be readily available to your body.
Our pine pollen is processed through a low temperature and high speed airflow sporoderm-breaking technology, leaving 99% of the pine pollen with the cell walls broken, with sizes of around 1 to 2 micrograms and thus available to your body.
Pine pollen has over 200 bioactive vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and other super nutrients in every single serving. It is a wild-harvested super food with no added chemicals or preservatives.
Pine Pollen Testosterone and a Rare Source of Phyto-Androgens
These can help combat all those phyto and xeno-estrogens are our environment is full of these days, from drinking water, pesticides, plastics and more. This includes:
This is not a steroid and you won’t have any side effects of those drugs. Instead with all the natural co-factors and the small amounts these will work with your body for adaptogenic effects. These are provided through novel plant compounds like Gibberellins and Brassinosteroids, which bind to testosterone receptors sites, regulate prostate health, have anti-inflammatory, liver detoxifying actions and much more.
For more of the anabolic effects, you’ll want to get the Pine Pollen Tincture. This is best for bodybuilding with pine pollen.
For men, take a three tablespoon dose of pine pollen mixed in 8 oz. of water before going to bed. If you don’t wake up with “morning wood” you can send back the unused portion of your pine pollen for a full refund.
But when you do wake up “erect” feel free to leave a review of our pine pollen below. 😉
Nocturnal Penile Tumescense, as the scientists call it, is a natural process that occurs for healthy men. When your hormones are working right this should be a daily occurrence.
When on pine pollen one man said he had to “piss in the bathtub” each morning. As for how this translates to sexual function, I’ll leave that up to your imagination.
Note that this is a bigger dose than normally recommended, but it helps to ensure you “feel” the effects. Experiment to find the right dose of pine pollen for you so that this occurs every day and be sure to check out the details on our Megadose Pine Pollen below.
The same effects can also be achieved with the pine pollen tincture.
This doesn’t work for everyone. It does for many. For others you’ll just gain other pine pollen benefits.

At a dose of 10 grams a day (approximately 3 tablespoons) this supply will last 25 days. At five grams a day it would last 50 days. Of course, you can also order it as a stockpile with regular dosing, as its like buying four bags and getting one free.
There are approximately 83 tablespoons per 250 gram container.
NEW: Pine Pollen Tincture Extract
Pine pollen tincture benefits are slightly different from the powder. In a tincture form pine pollen’s phyto-androgens like testosterone and DHEA and more bioavailable to the human body. The alcohol has drawn them out and can deliver them straight into your bloodstream, whereas with the powder, most do not make it through the digestive tract.
Because this is more powerful hormonally pine pollen tinctures are generally only recommended for men over 30 years of age.
The 2 oz. tincture contains 60 servings of 30 drops (or a full dropper). The recommended pine pollen tincture dosage is 1/2 to 1 dropperful twice daily.
This is only made with the highest quality ingredients including our water and alcohol.
2:1 Pinus Massoniana Tincture in 25% Organic Grape Alcohol and 75% Mountain Spring Water.
There are no negative side effects from pine pollen for most people, just lots of beneficial ones. A low percentage of people are allergic to pine pollen and will have a response if it is consumed. If this occurs in you please stop using pine pollen.
Taken in a powdered form it is safe for everyone, even children. The androgenic compounds are not readily absorbed in the GI tract, but those along with all the micronutrients help optimize your own production and regulation of hormones within your body. In a tinctured form the phyto-androgens are much more available. It is generally only recommended that men over 30 or 40 should take this.
Pine Pollen Wiki or FAQ
How should I take pine pollen?
There are several different methods.
- Some people just put the powder into their mouth and then swallow it.
- Mix into water
- Mix into any liquid or a smoothie
- Sprinkle it on top of a salad or other foods
When should I take pine pollen?
Anytime. Some people like to take it along with natural testosterone production like in the morning and after workouts. It is also great to take before workouts and at night time before bed. For best results take pine pollen 2-3 different times per day instead of all at once.
Should pine pollen be taken with a meal or on an empty stomach?
Both work. Pine pollen is a whole food itself so it can mix with other foods, or it can be taken solo.
Can I take pine pollen with tea or coffee?
Yes you can. The one thing I would avoid is boiling or really hot water. These can damage some of the more delicate components of pine pollen. For best results wait for your beverages to cool (to the point where it wouldn’t burn you) before mixing in pine pollen.
Is your pine pollen organic?
No it is not certified organic as that is an expensive and difficult process. But truthfully this isn’t that important because our pine pollen supplies come from pristine areas, and no one is in the habit of spraying chemicals onto pine trees.
Is RAW pine pollen important?
Yes it is. Like many foods certain components in pine pollen are damaged by heat (while others are okay with heat). Our pine pollen is processed at low temperatures to help preserve these components.
The “morning wood” thing isn’t working for me, what should I do?
Please try at least a few days in a row. You could even try a higher dose. Due the complex nature of the human body we can’t guarantee it will work for everyone. You may need something different than what is available in pine pollen. For some people it doesn’t help with this effect but does bring many other positive benefits. Of course if you’d like to send back the unused portion of the pine pollen and let us know we’re happy to refund your money.
Is pine pollen safe to take for women and children?
Yes. Pine pollen is really more of a food than a medicine or drug. It is safe for anyone to consume in powdered form (except for those who have pine pollen allergies). We would only recommend the tinctures to men over 30 years of age though.
Is pine pollen good for bodybuilding?
Considering that optimal hormone levels are necessary to gain muscle and lose fat, pine pollen can certainly help. If you’re looking for more of a boost, the tincture may be the best bet.
Could I be allergic to pine pollen?
Unfortunately, a small percentage of people have a pine pollen allergy. This is not a dangerous allergy, like peanuts for some, but can cause discomfort. When you get pine pollen it is best to take a small dose, like 1/4 teaspoon, and wait a few hours. If you have any common symptoms of allergic reactions it may not be the best herbal supplement for you. Some people have reported that while they have a pine pollen allergy to the powder, in a tincture form they do fine.
Tinctured Pine Pollen Questions
Pine pollen has more of an androgenic effect in a tincture. This is great for older men seeking to help restore proper youthful levels.
Can I make my own tinctures?
How do I take a tincture?
Take a dropper full and squirt under your tongue. Hold there for 30 seconds before swallowing. This allows the nutrients (including androgens) to absorb directly into your blood stream.
What is the proper dose of a tincture?
I would recommend you start with a small amount (like a half or full dropper) and increase over time to find what works for you. As with pine pollen powder this is best to spread throughout the day rather than take all at once.
Should I cycle the tincture? Will being on the tincture stop my own hormone production?
When you’re dealing with hormones it is almost always a good idea to change things up so cycling off and on will be helpful. Or just taking some at random times. I recall David Wolfe saying with hormones its like a game of musical chairs and thus your supplementation should be more random than regular when working with things that effect your hormones. Also remember that pine pollen, even in tinctured form, is natural and contains co-factors or the biological package that helps your body use it properly, unlike isolated forms of direct testosterone.
Do the hormones aromatize into estrogens?
This is a possibility. Additional herbs like nettle root or passionflower can help to limit aromatization.
I’m sensitive to alcohol but still want the benefits of this tincture. What can I do?
While getting the tincture straight into your blood stream is best an alternative is to squirt the tincture into hot liquid like tea. Since alcohol evaporates at a lower temperature than water, the alcohol will steam off, leaving behind the nutrients it was carrying.
Can tinctures be made with anything besides alcohol?
Alcohol is a powerful solvent which is why its used. It pulls out fat soluble components. In this case it helps make the androgens more readily absorbable. Water alone will pull out some nutrition. Vinegar is another option.

Pine Pollen Works
Hi, I have been using Pine Pollen for a month now and am loving the amazing results! I also love the taste. It's like eating pine nuts. Well I took Logan's suggestions to do the Morning Wood test so I followed his instructions, which I took 3 tablespoons before bed. Not much happened the first night but noticed some tingling in my private area. The second night I did the same amount and around 3:30 am did notice a semi hard wood! But wow on the third night of taking it I had an amazing Morning Wood that was throbbing like I was a teenager again. Now I keep getting spontaneous erections through the day. It has also given me a much fuller package and my energy level has increased. I sleep better through the night know I will wake up to morning wood poking through my shorts. I just ordered more of the Pine Pollen. This time I made sure to get more so I don't run out. Thanks Superman Herbs I'm glad I came across your site.
Cheers And Aloha
It works and it taste great!!!
Skeptical I was!! But after the morning wood test, woke up at 4:30a with a good erection wasn't a "WoW" one but good enough. I have been dealing with Low T for 4 years now and have been trying alot of natural supplements but so far this pine pollen is one of the best. Tried tongkat and it has not worked for me like tribulis has. Can you guys consider tribulis. Email me and I'll let you know with have worked for me
I've been a cycler of androgenic male hormones for several years. I do so for the anabolic benefits, but more so because it helps me recapture the sex drive of my youth. As anyone who has done exogenous hormones can tell you, when you come off, you MUST have a strong Post Cycle Therapy if you expect to put your natural production back online. I'm using this product and the tongkat ali, along with a VERY low dose of a pharma grade SERM and I feel INCREDIBLE. I may never touch another exogenous hormone again, ever. These products are the real deal. Libido and male function are at on-cycle levels still. Simply incredible.
I use pine pollen daily this groups knowledge base is the best I have ever seen I am sharing with all my boxing friends and will be embarking on a tour to share what they have created it works for all not just sports nutrition Keep up the great work and have a great day
about pine pollen
I have been using pine pollen powder for two weeks now with no benefits, now I'm using pine pollen tincture for one week but so far nothing work's for me my sex drive is all the way down, don't know what to use.
I'm a lifter who has tried about every kind of test booster under the sun. This is by far the most unique. I bought the tincture version. Within the first 48 hours I awoke to the most raging nocturnal erection I've felt in years. This also has stimulated interest and given me increased pumps in the gym. This product is an absolute winner.
Just got the Pine Pollen yesterday and tried the "Morning Wood" test. Took it at 10 pm. At 2am, woke up to, yes, a "wet dream". At 57 with ED for 4 years and some success with Cialis, I wanted to try a more natural approach. Could not be happier!
Pine pollen had a great effect for me as a pre-workout supplement. It didn't help with endurance, but I did manage to lift more if I take it before a workout.
It also had a positive effect on my already very healthy sex life. Keep in mind that I am physically active 30-year-old, so there weren't any issues to begin with. Having said that, I noticed even harder wood and the time between intercourse greatly reduced since I started taking pine pollen. Awesome stuff!
Follow Up Review- 10 months in
I found out about this product In May of 2014 and started taking the Pine Pollen. !!!!BODY HAIR!!!! I've pretty much taken it non-stop since then and Pine Pollen is simply amazing. I take both the tincture and powder and just try to do some light cycling on/off every few weeks for a few days. Late last summer I noticed my legs were getting hairier, wife agreed they had more hair but also chest, stomach and arms had more hair too. So, i'm no expert but I'm inclined to think this is directly associated with higher Testosterone. I feel great too. I think it's both the nutritional and hormonal aspects of the 2 products that really revs things up. I'm 45 and had been thinking my T may be getting low due to the frequent complaints you typically hear regarding low testosterone. I was using different T boosters that you can get at gnc and places like that. I found that they work a little, but just don't do enough. Then I found SUPERMAN HERBS and Pine Pollen. Shilajit Rocks Too!!!
I was taking testosterone injections, they worked in reverse. My prostate became extremely enlarged, I gained 12 lbs, and the equipment was not working very good.I quit about two months ago so the stuff is out of my system
One week of taking Pine Pollen I feel like million buck and the wood is back,volume much bigger and great work outs.
