What Causes Low Testosterone in Men and How It Can Be Reversed

TestosteroneTestosterone is a hormone that has an effect on almost every aspect of man's body. Testosterone helps the body build the various proteins that play key roles in virtually every bodily function.

Testosterone is produced in the testes and in the adrenal glands. It is to males what estrogen is to females.

Starting at about the age of 30, testosterone levels drop by 10 percent every decade and Sex Binding Hormone Globulin or SHBG, is increasing. SHBG traps much of the testosterone that is still circulating and makes it unavailable to exert its effects in the body's tissues. What's left over does the beneficial work ad is known as bioavailable testosterone.

Andropause is associated with low testosterone levels. Every man experiences a decline of bioavalible testosterone but some men's level dip lower than others which causes them to experience Andropausal symptoms.

Testosterone is essential for normal sexual behavior and giving rise to erections. It also affects many metabolic activities such as production of blood cells in the bone marrow, bone formation, cholesterol metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, liver function and prostate gland growth. It also affects mood.

These symptoms can impact their quality of life and may expose them to other, loger term risks of low testosterone. It is estimated that 30% of men in their 50s will have testosterone levels low enough to be causing symptoms.

Impact of Low Testosterone:

Most parts of the body need testosterone to function optimally. Without enough active testosterone, many changes can occur throughout the body.

Among healthy men, there is a substantial variability in testosterone levels and so not all men will experience the same changes to the same extent.

Typical response to low bioavailable testosterone levels include excessive fatigue, reduced sexual interest, emotional, psychological and behavioral changes, decreased muscle mass, loss of muscle strength, increased body fat, weak bones, back pains or osteoporosis, generalized aches and pains, forgetfulness, cardiovascular risks and sleep disturbances.

There are natural ways or routine you may want to consider to naturally increase your testosterone levels. Topping our list is simply through making love, which is the easiest, most pleasurable and enjoyable cure anyone to accomplish. Sex naturally increases testosterone levels and lust as well. However, it does not really happen when you do it on your own or what we call as ‘self gratification'. Persistent training or weight lifting also increases testosterone production. When the muscle gets overworked and you feel your muscle getting a burning sensation, then you have reached that point. This burn is actually caused by lactic acid in the muscle tissue. This substance evades the normal production cycle of testosterone and just goes directly on the testicles and then naturally causes cells in the testes to produce testosterone. But remember not to overdo it. Long and vital workouts without proper rest and rebuilding periods could unfortunately create an opposite effect; instead, overdoing it can lower your testosterone levels, cause loss of muscle mass, and leave you very much prone to illness.

Remember that there is always a less expensive and natural way to cure these things. But if you are unsure, then it's better to consult a professional advice.

  1. I am a 62 year old man living in the US and this was a problem for me for many years after I stopped body building. My testosterone levels crashed after my late thirties and I had to start using supplements to bring it back into balance. There are many alternatives to supplements but I have found varying levels of success with “natural” methods of correcting this.
