Testosterone: Its Hormones, Libido Enhancement and Importance
Are You Happy with Your Sex Life?
Men – Could Increasing Your Testosterone Be The Key To A Better Life?
Testosterone, as we all know, is a male hormone, however, women produce about 1/10th of the amount of testosterone
that men do.
Testosterone is without question one of life’s key hormones or chemical messengers in the body. Some
of the key roles in which testosterone is well-documented include: libido enhancement, drive, general well-being
and of course improving body definition.
In addition, I wanted to comment on numerous clinical studies that prove the benefit of balanced testosterone levels
on the cardiovascular system and its health. Since heart disease is still the number one killer of men in America,
you may want to consider a strategy that at least eliminates or significantly reduces the factors that decrease hormone
levels, like improvement in your diet, modifying your exercise program, reducing stress and restoring nutritional
status. Read on for more salient features regarding testosterone.
The Importance Of Maintaining Hormonal Balance In Men
All men lose testosterone gradually as they age; typically, starting at age 40. Most men stay in what is considered
to be a normal range throughout their lives. However, two in 10 men age 60 and up will dip below the normal range,
which is considered a testosterone deficiency. The testosterone hormone is responsible in maintaining muscle mass,
fat distribution, bone mass, sperm production, sex drive and stamina.
If you are a man aged 40 and up, and you are experiencing decreased energy, reduced muscle mass and strength, decreased
cognitive function, diminished sex drive or depressive moods, then you may be suffering from low testosterone levels.
Does this mean you should run out and get a shot of testosterone once a month? No. There are potential risks involved
in testosterone therapy and the symptoms may also be attributed to other conditions such as liver disease, hypothyroidism
and depression. You should consult your physician and discuss the symptoms with your physician; ask him/her to test
your steroid hormone levels.
Testosterone therapy and excessive levels of hormones in the body may result in sleeping
problems, infertility, excessive blood production (possibly increasing the risk of stroke), and problems with the
prostate gland such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer.
We believe balance is key. For example, it is reported that middle-aged
men who maintain normal testosterone levels appear to be protected against hardening of the arteries. In fact, according
to Dr. Olli T. Raitakari, Finnish researcher from the University of Turku, “Our findings confirm in healthy
middle-aged men that normal testosterone levels are protective against atherosclerosis.”
But how do you maintain
a healthy balance of testosterone levels after age 40 without testosterone therapy? Easy (at least with determination
and will power), the answer is diet (rich in green leafy vegetables, proteins and healthy fats), exercise, high-quality
vitamin/mineral supplements, and adopt a lifestyle of less stress. Yes, it is a staple answer, but one with many
