Natural Ways To Deal With Low Testosterone


December 12, 2016

Testosterone is the hormone that makes men tick, but it isn’t always there when you need it. In some cases, men start to notice a decrease in energy levels or a reduced sex drive and they start to wonder– “what is wrong with me?” It’s most likely the result of low testosterone but the good news is, there are ways to fight back!

Sleep More!
Studies show that after just a few weeks of poor sleeping habits, testosterone levels had already started to decrease. When you aren’t sleeping effectively, your energy, mood and work ethic are all diminished as a result.

Curb Your Diet
If you’re looking to restore testosterone levels, it starts and ends with your diet. A large percentage of men who suffer from Low T are also overweight, and doctors have determined that the two are mutually exclusive. But a crash diet is only going to have a reverse effect on hormone levels. You have to incorporate a healthy diet and stick to it over a period of time.

Increase Zinc Intake
Did you know that Zinc actually plays a large role in regulating your hormone levels? Studies show that men with testosterone deficiencies also have lower levels of zinc in their system. If you want to increase your intake, try some of these foods:

    • Beans
    • Nuts
    • Crab
    • Lobster
  • Whole Grains

Reduce Sugar Intake
Glucose is critical to maintaining bodily function but if it is used in excess, it can negatively affect hormone levels. Reducing your sugar intake will lead to weight loss which will help boost testosterone production.

One of the leading causes of Gynecomastia in men is the irregular hormone levels in their body. They can’t break food down properly and their lack of energy leads to less exercise which induces weight gain.
