Testosterone is a powerful steroid hormone. It is often referred to as the male sex hormone because it’s responsible for male sex characteristics and men produce ten times more of it than women. The maintenance of adequate testosterone levels in men is essential for mental, physical, emotional and sexual wellbeing. Unfortunately, after age of 30, testosterone begins to decline and most men will experience a 1% drop in testosterone levels per year, after their twenties. This may not sound like a lot, but by age 40 it amounts to a 10 % loss which is enough to produce noticeable symptoms and by age 60 levels will typically be 30% lower than age 30. Fortunately, testosterone levels can easily be increased and the negative symptoms associated with low testosterone reversed. Before explaining how to naturally and effectively boost testosterone levels, lets first examine what the benefits are of doing so.
