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 then 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:

  • Androstenedione
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA
  • Androsterone

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 prostrate 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.

Morning Wood…

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.

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.

Warning International Customers

We’ve ran into problems with shipments of over 400 grams, like two Megadose, in several foreign countries. They’re denying entry and even destroying shipments. For best results for your order to get through please order less than this amount.


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?

Yes! Please watch this video for how to make a pine pollen tincture.

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.

Potent stuff

Mar 13, 2015 by Miro

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

Mar 10, 2015 by Matt

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!!!

Feel Great

Jan 26, 2015 by Russell

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.

works to shred fat in over 50 females...

Jan 26, 2015 by cheryl jack

You guys know I order a bunch of stuff from you, as you are a rarity on the internet - I appreciate being able to get the bulk components that are high quality, and mixing what I want in the quantities I choose. I waited until you had enough of the pine pollen tincture to go around before I tried it.

Now before I tell you my results, I'll let you know that I used to train guys in the days of high quality prohormones, all which were eventually banned for being too effective. So add a couple of decades to my age, metabolism and age-related hormonal changes...PLUS add lots of STRESS, long work hours, disordered sleep and relative inactivity, and you get me the blob today. So, you know CORTISOL is going wacko insane.

OK...I thought this stuff would be able to antagonize the effects of too much cortisol, which shows up in ladies over 45 as weight gain in the torso, butt and legs...that puffy-type stuff you never had in your prime. Well, I wanted to test what this would do WITHOUT the addition of exercise, so I could tell what was directly the effect of the tincture. The result after 4 days of 1/2 a dose is WOW! The fat and puffiness is going away visibly. I've always told my patients and clients that MEN had a one up on women, and that is the anabolic hormone, testosterone. Another unexpected positive benefit is that my singing voice got stronger.

Now I'm going to start exercising with it and plan to use it at half dose (15 drops) 4-5 times a week. I will start adding back the pollen too with other formulations I get from you - I anticipate a phenomenal response in shredding fat.

Thanks for making this SO available. Time to order a couple more bottles of tincture. (yes, I know I just received another one...)

I am 66 years old and have been following Pavel's strength training methods for years. I am stronger in my 60's than I was in my 40's. I have been experimenting with herbs and your site seems to offer everything I need. I have been taking Pine Pollen extract for about a year now and it has helped increased my free testosterone over 100% and lowered my estradiol. I used to supplement my DHEA but I do not have to now with the Pine Pollen. This is an amazing product.

Like an Injection

Dec 04, 2014 by Kraig D. Moore, MD

OMG!, It literally gave me a direct increase in my testosterone as if I had just given myself an IV injection of testosterone.
You have an EXCELLENT product!. I immediately purchased your Pine pollen tincture..
Again, AMAZING results. I have always said there is absolutely no reason to prescribe pharmaceutical testosterone replacement. NO need. To dangerous, I refuse to prescribe testosterone replacement for my middle age male patients. Herbs such as Fenugreek, Royal jelly, Maca root do the job. But your pine pollen tincture is the best testosterone replacement I have ever seen. Really, it works. I try to get my male patients to try the herbals for testosterone replacement. But to be honest, I can't get them to try it. But next time I am going recommend they try your Pine pollen tincture. It's easy to administer. No after taste. When used as Super man herbs recommends they will get pretty fast results. Your pine pollen tincture works. And is natural. Next time listen to some of the potential side effects from the the pharmaceutical replacement drugs. You will understand why I said "Thank you" for your Pine pollen tincture.

Amazing Stuff

Nov 20, 2014 by Jeff

I have always been skeptical of cultural medicine, but the research that has been done in recent years persuaded me to give some of it a try. My first order from Superman Herbs was the Male Hormone Package, and it has worked so well that now I am hooked on trying new herbs. I can definitely feel the increased energy and sense of well-being in the long term, and often immediately after dosing as well.

I just tried the morningwood test the other day, and it absolutely worked. It was a useful test of my tolerance/dose, and my conclusion is to try and get in the full 10 grams per day that is recommended in the Megadose Protocol. Taking a large dose at night especially seems to help my recovery and energy the next day; it even seems to have helped the small gum infection that has been bothering me.

I highly recommend the Pine Pollen and other supplements to anyone who wants to improve their health, mental or physical. I really believe that popularizing these herbs can lead to increased happiness on a global scale. I also just want to say thank you to Superman Herbs for creating such an awesome website, one that teaches with research instead of convincing with hype.

Very Good Supplement!!!

Sep 22, 2014 by Celso

I tried the tincture, pine pollen powder, and nettle root package. I really like the results and they are definitely impressive. I am 49 years old, very active and I do exercise and eat properly. When I first tried the package I started in the morning on a empty stomach and I felt a great improvement on energy almost immediately of taking it, my mind became more focus and clear and I could feel a great amount of well being. On the same day I took a half teaspoon of the powder with a half tea spoon of needle root by afternoon with a little coffee and regained energy, tonight I took a half tea spoon of the pine pollen powder and went to bed. I did experience vivid dreams to a high level. A month passed and I still feel the same but I have to say that exercises have a good influence on the powder, they definitely help the effects. I feel so energized during the morning and so good that I don't need to have breakfast! Manhood: Another impressive results as far as improvement on seminal liquid volume and even texture and color. Increased erections and pleasure, also increased desire and libido just a bit. I also would say that increase erections just a bit as I never had problems with erections, but my libido is not as good as when I was younger, erections still the same. To finish this review I would strong recommend this product if you want to improve your overall health and well being. It is a powerful supplement that should be tried by anyone seeking health improvement. Remarks are: Energy, Focus, A sense of well being, Men tonic. Caution: Do not abuse the tincture and always use on the same day at least one time the pine pollen powder, if you use tonight don't abuse it due to the increased amount of mental activity and vivid dreams. May my experience help yours!! Good luck.
