Testosterone is what separates the men from the boys.
It is also the primary sex hormone that determines male sex characteristics and also responsible for increased muscle mass, bone mass, libido, potency and sperm production in the body.
Anything to do with being male and male virility is some way or another linked to testosterone.
Any man looking to increase their virility, strength, stamina or libido should play close attention to their own testosterone levels.
Testosterone Levels in Men are Dropping…Quickly
A new study has found a “substantial” drop in men’s testosterone levels since the 1980’s (and it is not age related).
It is generally established that man’s testosterone levels decrease at between 1-2% per year, but the findings in this study were far in excess of that.
According to data from the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, a study conducted with over 1,700 Boston area men from 1987 until 2004, “the researchers observed a speedier decline in average testosterone levels than would have been expected with aging alone”.
According to Antti Perheentupa M.D., Ph.D, from the University of Turki in Finland, the results of his study suggested lower testosterone levels were occurring in younger men too.
A man born in 1970 had about 20% less testosterone at age 35 than a man of his father’s generation.
Research is now clearly pointing to the fact our own grandfathers and our great grandfathers had more testosterone than we do today.
How do you know if you have low testosterone?
There are a number of well known symptoms of low testosterone, some of them can include:
- Low or no sex drive
- Weight gain (especially around the abdominal area)
- Loss of morning erections
- Erectile dysfunction
- Poor Memory
- Lower motivational level
- Loss of energy
- Lower muscle mass
- Loss of intensity of orgasms
- Body stiffness
- Bad temper
- Joint Pains
- Failing fitness levels
Looking at the symptoms is not an accurate method to tell if someone is suffering from low testosterone. The best way to know is to test for it.
On a personal note, I have testosterone level tests done many times a year over the last few years.
The results from my own testosterone testing has been enlightening to say the least.
Many of the successes in developing the Testosterone Boosting Protocol could not have been achieved without the quick and inexpensive testosterone level testing these kits offer.
If you are interested, here is where I purchase my own testosterone imbalance kits.
These kits are easy to use and only require a saliva sample. They are highly accurate and inexpensive.
It does not require a doctors visit or needles and the test often have a turnaround time of 7-10 days.
What I love about this test is it can be done in the convenience and privacy of your own home.
Need any more reasons to track your testosterone?
If better sex is not a good enough reason to naturally increase your testosterone levels then I will leave you with a few of the results from the many studies published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
These results show that low testosterone levels lead to obesity, loss of muscle, weak bones and depression. If that isn’t bad enough, it also increases the odds of heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimers and other major health problems.
