Do you remember what it was like to be a teenager? Do you have memories of that lean, muscular physique that never seemed to gain an ounce of fat no matter how much you ate – or drank? Do you now find yourself patting your belly more than your dog? If you do, you could very well be experiencing a loss of testosterone, otherwise known as andropause.
When men are young, their testosterone levels are in abundance and associated with muscularity, strength and virility. As they age and sex hormone metabolism changes, men begin to lose their valuable testosterone while increasing their levels of estrogen – particularly16-hydorxy estrone. This condition, often referred to as estrogen-dominance, is also associated with increasing abdominal fat, reduced libido and prostate problems. By retirement age it is not uncommon to find men with higher estrogen levels than women of the same age.
Research shows—through age—that sex hormone metabolism can be negatively affected by numerous factors, some of which include: loss of muscle mass, body fat accumulation, excess stress, inactivity, poor diet, inadequate sleep and factors present in environmental hormone disruptors (i.e. pesticides, plastics, food supplies and pollution).
If you are a man over 30, you are probably already starting to feel the debilitating effects of lower testosterone and higher estrogen levels. Restoring testosterone to optimal levels has been proven to: increase muscle mass; decrease body fat; boost brain function; strengthen bones; lower insulin and protect the heart – reducing virtually every cardiovascular risk factor including high cholesterol, high blood sugar, abnormal clotting and stress.
When testosterone levels decline, aside from the fact that overall health also declines, the libido that once never failed you, is all but gone! Men over the age of 30 are probably already starting to feel the effects of lower testosterone production, which often leads to a diminished sex drive with infrequent and weaker erections.
Millions of men around the world take prescription drugs to enhance erections because they are unaware of the natural alternatives. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs that only work to enhance erections and should never be taken on a daily basis, there are natural supplements that are not only safe for daily use, they work to restore a healthy testosterone status and in turn enhance excitability, promote stronger erections and better orgasms.
Prostate problems are also a common affliction for men as they age. Over 30 million men throughout North America suffer from a condition called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), which represents the enlargement or swelling of the prostate gland. Over 50% of men over the age of 50 suffer from this condition and almost 100% of men over the age of 80 can expect to suffer from BPH.
There are natural products available that work to support and enhance overall prostate health by addressing all three areas of prostate problems: hormone changes, inflammation and nutritional deficiencies – naturally and without the side-effects that are often associated with prescription drugs.
