Just how can I increase my testosterone level? What’re the risks of experiencing LOW testosterone? Does low “test” signify I’m going to have a low sexual drive as well? And what’re the most effective ways to boost my testosterone level, especially if I’m 40 or above?
The simple truth is, there are numerous, many articles online (and off) about the difficulties with having a low level 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 top range of competitive tasks.
(everything from the natural competitive instinct to succeed at work and relationship, to the 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 have a table job, or even a non active lifestyle that suppresses your bodies natural inclination to make higher level of test)
After the age of 27, testosterone levels start 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 generally 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 lower energy levels, to depressed emotional states and sexual apathy as well)
Testosterone levels may be easily increased in a totally natural way – and many of the extremely BEST solutions and strategies may be “stacked” for exponentially improved results. (e.g. – combining diet and resistance training and supplements… and of course, various other exotic esoteric strategies as well may be mixed set for even BETTER results)
Some examples of some little known and even unusual ways to boost the bodies natural drive to boost growth hormones?
Deep breathing for instance, 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 time frame, 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 could cause negative physiological side effects)
(don’t laugh, not only have University level studies been done on this phenomena since it relates to LEADERSHIP qualities, “alpha male syndrome” and testosterone levels, these same rituals have ALSO been shown to decrease cortisol, or the strain hormones that usually sabotage success, sexual drive and other daily drivers in men and women alike)
The most effective news?
Higher levels of testosterone are associated 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’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 on your “good” hormone levels, in 21-30 days.
Include exercise, (including MORE sexual activity as an application of exercise) and stress reduction techniques like meditation, relaxation and focused attention for lower cortisol levels, and you’ll be amazed at how fast and markedly your REAL fitness levels will improve. (and simply how much more pleasurable you’ll have as well!)
