French Oak Wood Extract May Help Improve Energy and Vigor in Men

French Oak Wood Extract May Help Improve Energy and Vigor in Men

As men age, they experience a decrease in testosterone levels which can result in having less energy and feeling more fatigued. A recent study has found that French oak wood extract may help improve energy and vigor in men.

Participants in the study included 40 men with an average age of 57.5. All were experiencing decreased general vigor and increased oxidative stress at the beginning of the study. Half took 300 mg of French oak wood extract and half took a placebo daily for 4 weeks. All of them participated in a standard management regimen that included a healthy diet, exercise, and supplementation with potassium gluconate and vitamin C. A vigor visual analog scale was used to evaluate vigor, activity levels, and mood states.

Participants in the French oak wood group had significantly improved scores in all vigor-related categories compared to the placebo group. Specifically, they reported a 55% increase in energy compared to 5% increase in the placebo group, a 75% increase in activity level compared to 35% in the placebo group, and a 67% increase in enthusiasm, compared to no increase in the placebo group. In addition, they saw an 80% reduction in feelings of apathy compared to a 40% reduction in the control group.

Participants in the French oak wood group also saw a 15% reduction in oxidative stress.

The study was conducted by researchers from Chieti-Pescara University. It was published on September 1, 2020 in the journal Panminerva Medica.
