It’s an understatement to say that testosterone is an important hormone in your body. It affects your sleep, metabolism, muscle growth and retention, sex drive, and other important functions. It’s completely normal for testosterone levels to decline as you age, but testosterone levels sometimes decrease to the point of causing problematic symptoms. We provided you with information about how to raise your testosterone levels naturally in a previous post, so be sure to read up on that information if you haven’t yet seen it. In today’s post, we’ll continue to explain several methods that can help you raise your testosterone levels naturally.
These tips may help if you’re suffering from the symptoms of low testosterone, but it’s unlikely that they will resolve the problem entirely. Testosterone replacement therapy is by far the most effective way to restore your testosterone levels to normal, so get in touch with Men’s Vitality Center if you’re interested in learning more about how testosterone therapy can help you.
Exercising regularly provides you with a variety of benefits, and healthy testosterone levels are one of the most important. While studies have shown that active men have higher testosterone levels than sedentary men, certain exercises are more conducive to testosterone production. Lifting heavy weights, sprinting, and engaging in high-intensity interval exercises are all excellent ways to boost your body’s testosterone production. You should always speak with your physician before beginning a new exercise regimen.
Maintain a Healthy Weight
If you’re planning to add daily exercise into your lifestyle, then you’re already one step ahead of this tip. Numerous studies have shown that extra weight suppresses testosterone production, which in turn allows for easier fat accumulation. It’s a vicious cycle, and many men need to begin testosterone replacement therapy before they see noticeable results. You’ll sleep better, have more energy, and feel more confident when you shed those extra pounds, so speak with one of our men’s health experts if you’re interested in learning more about a managed weight loss program through Men’s Vitality Center.
Stay Away From Sugar
Almost everyone knows that sugar will add inches to your waistline, but few know that it will also lower testosterone levels. We won’t get too technical in this post, but basically, your body produces the hormone insulin to stabilize blood sugar levels. Consistently eating sugary foods or consuming soda causes your body to produce large amounts of insulin, which consequently lowers the amount of testosterone in your blood. If you’re currently receiving testosterone therapy or plan to begin it in the near future, then we recommend minimizing the amount of sugar in your diet. However, minimizing your sugar intake is a good idea, regardless of whether or not you’re planning to begin testosterone therapy.
We hope that this post will help you to improve your lifestyle and raise your testosterone levels through natural means. As we noted at the outset, some men will need to begin testosterone replacement therapy before their low testosterone symptoms are resolved.
