Just how can I increase my testosterone level? What’re the risks of getting LOW testosterone? Does low “test” mean that I’m going to have a low sexual drive as well? And what are the most effective ways to boost my testosterone level, especially when I’m 40 or above?
The fact remains, there are lots of, many articles online (and off) about the issues with having a low amount of testosterone for a man… ranging from 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 work and relationship, to well-known issues that many athletes and weekend warriors face staying in touch at the gym, the ballpark and beyond)
The BAD news?
Testosterone levels unfortunately drop with age, especially in sedentary men. (e.g. – when you yourself have a desk job, or even a non active lifestyle that suppresses your bodies natural inclination to produce higher amount of test)
After the age of 27, testosterone levels begin to trail off in men… and with each successive year, there can be a marked downward spiral in the total amount of natural “healthy” growth hormone in many men, to and through middle and later age. (after 50 – these drops CAN become problematic, and can cause anything from Erectile Dysfunction, to lessen energy, to depressed emotional states and sexual apathy as well)
Testosterone levels can be easily increased in an entirely natural way – and many of the extremely BEST solutions and strategies can be “stacked” for exponentially improved results. (e.g. – combining diet and weight training and supplements… and needless to say, several other exotic esoteric strategies as well can 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 as an example, and many deeply focused meditation techniques have already been shown to boost testosterone levels.
So too has POWER posing… especially with the belly sucked in, the chest stuck out and the hands positioned on 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 also been demonstrated to DECREASE cortisol as well. Testogen (the stress hormone that can cause negative physiological side effects)
(don’t laugh, not just have University level studies been done on this phenomena because it concerns LEADERSHIP qualities, “alpha male syndrome” and testosterone levels, these same rituals have ALSO been proven to decrease cortisol, or the stress hormones that always sabotage success, sexual drive and other daily drivers in men and women alike)
The most effective news?
Higher levels of testosterone are connected with rapid increases in sexual desire, and some argue… sexual stamina and staying power as well.
Simple dietary and lifestyle changes, including a diet that is HIGHER in healthy fats, lean protein and LOWER in alcohol and bad fats, and radically reducing your carbohydrate levels, may have a remarkable effect on your own “good” hormone levels, in 21-30 days.
Add in exercise, (including MORE sex as a form of exercise) and stress reduction techniques like meditation, relaxation and focused attention for lower cortisol levels, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly and markedly your REAL fitness levels will improve. (and simply how much more pleasurable you should have to boot!)
