Testosterone booster?

Ive got a bicuspid aortic valve and im basically wondering if it would hurt me to take a natural testosterone boosting supplement while working out?

Old people don't take testosterone to build up. If the warning were directed at a certain age group, it would say so.  I truly think this is an issue to be discussed with your cardiologist.

Im 20, in somewhat good shape other than the heart....I get palpitations, hard beating sometimes, and need to have the valve replaced soon.

Pretty much everything I ever look at says a warning about taking with heart disease but im wondering why or is that more directed towards older people with worse problems.

I can still work out and go run miles so I feel like I should be fine.
