Phytochemicals

Higher testosterone levels are good for adding LBM, minimizing body fat, having a healthy libido, etc. but can have negative consequences too. Male pattern baldness, acne, oily skin, and benign prostatic hyperplasia are all potential consequences of increased testosterone due to conversion to DHT. So it's not surprising that there would be a market for compounds that might be anabolic without producing androgenic effects.

Herbs produce a vast array of biologically active substances that have been shown to have many different effects. Many function as antioxidants, inhibit the growth of cancer cells, affect neurotransmitter levels, enhance glucose control, reduce inflammation and perform other useful functions. It's conceivable then, that phytochemicals exist that could stimulate muscle protein synthesis or improve performance.
