How do I increase my testosterone level? What’re the risks of experiencing LOW testosterone? Does low “test” show that I’m going to truly have a low sexual drive as well? And what’re the best ways to boost my testosterone level, especially if I’m 40 or above?
The truth is, there are many, 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 high selection of competitive tasks.
(everything from the natural competitive instinct to succeed at work and relationship, to the most obvious conditions that many athletes and weekend warriors face keeping up at the gym, the ballpark and beyond)
The BAD news?
Testosterone levels unfortunately drop with age, especially in sedentary men. (e.g. – if you have a table job, or even a non active lifestyle that suppresses your bodies natural inclination to create higher amount of test)
After age 27, testosterone levels begin to trail off in men… and with each successive year, there can be quite a marked downward spiral in the quantity of natural “healthy” growth hormone in most men, to and through middle and later age. (after 50 – these drops CAN become problematic, and can cause anything from Erectile Dysfunction, to reduce energy, to depressed emotional states and sexual apathy as well)
The good thing?
Testosterone levels can be easily increased in a completely natural way – and many of the extremely BEST solutions and strategies can be “stacked” for exponentially improved results. (e.g. – combining diet and muscle building and supplements… and needless to say, several other exotic esoteric strategies as well can be mixed in for even BETTER results)
Some samples of some little known and even unusual ways to boost the bodies natural drive to boost growth hormones?
Deep breathing like, 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 placed on the hips.
Believe it or not… “fake smiling” for a fixed time period, while looking at oneself in the mirror, has not only been proven to boost testosterone, it’s already been demonstrated to DECREASE cortisol as well. Testogen (the stress hormone that may cause negative physiological side effects)
(don’t laugh, not only have University level studies been done on this phenomena as it relates to LEADERSHIP qualities, “alpha male syndrome” and testosterone levels, these same rituals have ALSO been proven to decrease cortisol, or the stress hormones that often sabotage success, sexual drive and other daily drivers in men and women alike)
The most effective news?
Higher degrees of testosterone are connected with rapid increases in sexual desire, and some argue… sexual stamina and endurance 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, may have a dramatic effect in your “good” hormone levels, in 21-30 days.
Add in exercise, (including MORE sexual activity as a form of exercise) and stress reduction techniques like meditation, relaxation and focused attention for lower cortisol levels, and you will end up amazed at how fast and markedly your REAL fitness levels will improve. (and how much more pleasurable you should have as well!)
