How do I increase my testosterone level? What’re the risks of having LOW testosterone? Does low “test” signify I’m going to truly have a low sexual drive as well? And what are the most effective ways to boost my testosterone level, particularly when I’m 40 or above?
The reality is, there are numerous, many articles online (and off) about the problems with having a low degree of testosterone for a man… including lower libido and overall sexual drive, to depression, emotional irritability, difficulty with focus and concentration and lower “output” levels in a higher selection of competitive tasks.
(everything from the natural competitive instinct to succeed at the office and relationship, to the most obvious conditions that many athletes and weekend warriors face staying in touch at the gym, the ballpark and beyond)
The BAD news?
Testosterone levels unfortunately go down with age, especially in sedentary men. (e.g. – when you yourself have a table job, or a non active lifestyle that suppresses your bodies natural inclination to create higher degree of test)
After age 27, testosterone levels begin to trail off in men… and with each successive year, there could be a marked downward spiral in the total amount of natural “healthy” growth hormone in most men, to and through middle and later age. (after 50 – these drops CAN become problematic, and can result in anything from Erectile Dysfunction, to lower energy, to depressed emotional states and sexual apathy as well)
Testosterone levels could be easily increased in a totally natural way – and many of the very BEST solutions and strategies could be “stacked” for exponentially improved results. (e.g. – combining diet and muscle building and supplements… and needless to say, various other exotic esoteric strategies as well could be mixed set for even BETTER results)
Some types of some little known and even unusual ways to boost the bodies natural drive to boost growth hormones?
Deep breathing for example, and many deeply focused meditation techniques have been shown to boost testosterone levels.
So too has POWER posing… especially with the belly sucked in, the chest stuck out and the hands added to the hips.
Believe it or not… “fake smiling” for a fixed period of time, while considering oneself in the mirror, has not just been proven to boost testosterone, it’s been demonstrated to DECREASE cortisol as well. Testogen (the stress hormone that will cause negative physiological side effects)
(don’t laugh, not just have University level studies been done with this phenomena as it concerns LEADERSHIP qualities, “alpha male syndrome” and testosterone levels, these same rituals have ALSO been demonstrated to decrease cortisol, or the strain hormones that often sabotage success, sexual drive and other daily drivers in men and women alike)
The most effective news?
Higher quantities of testosterone are related to rapid increases in sexual desire, and some argue… sexual stamina and staying power as well.
Simple dietary and lifestyle changes, including a diet that’s HIGHER in healthy fats, lean protein and LOWER in alcohol and bad fats, and radically reducing your carbohydrate levels, can have a dramatic effect in your “good” hormone levels, in 21-30 days.
Add exercise, (including MORE sex as a questionnaire of exercise) and stress reduction techniques like meditation, relaxation and focused attention for lower cortisol levels, and you will be amazed at how quickly and markedly your REAL fitness levels will improve. (and how much more pleasurable you should have on top of that!)
