The Shocking Truth About Testosterone
Take Advantage of Nature’s Simplest Manhood Booster
If you’re a man over 40, you’ve probably had a few scares. Maybe you “just weren’t interested” in a situation that once would have had you inflamed or you’ve sometimes found it a little harder to get an erection or you’ve “run out of steam” before your partner is done.
All of these situations may be signs your testosterone (T) level has dropped. The hormone that once defined your manhood has begun to desert you. It’s time to take advantage of Nature’s simplest manhood booster.
Movies show you men who seem ultra-virile in their 30s, 40s and beyond. 007 is ageless. But that’s not the norm. Most guys start to kiss their manhood goodbye in their 30s.
The good news is you can feel – and perform – like one of those over-40 movie studs. And it’s not that hard. Nature offers powerful allies in the battle to hold on to your manhood.
One of the simplest and most powerful secrets is absolutely free. And in a few moments, I’ll reveal how you can take advantage of this potent manhood booster.
The Shocking Truth About Testosterone
Testosterone is often called “the male hormone.” But “the teenage male hormone” might be more accurate. Because your testosterone levels peaked in your teens. By the time you hit 19, you have up to 25% less testosterone than you did just a couple of years earlier.
By age 30, most men’s testosterone is dropping by about 1% per year. If you do the math, it gets a little scary. You could hit age 50 with as much as 45% less testosterone than you had at your peak.
That’s middle age and you probably peaked 30 years ago. Your muscles have been slowly turning to flab for 3 decades. And chances are good you’ve had problems getting or maintaining an erection more than once or twice.
This scenario is common. But it’s not inevitable. You have several options for boosting your testosterone (T) level. But don’t worry, you probably don’t need expensive therapies or pricey shots. The latest research says you can boost your T level naturally.
Low T: More Than a Manhood Buster
Low T doesn’t just compromise your manhood. Its effects can reach much further.
For instance, researchers at the University of Washington Medical Center (WMC) have showed low T is linked to serious problems with metabolism.
The WMC team reviewed several studies. They discovered men with low T were also more likely to have insulin problems. Men with low T levels are much more likely to be insulin resistant. That is, low T is linked to problems processing blood sugar.1
The WMC doctors suggest men with low T boost their insulin sensitivity by working out more and losing weight.
Fortunately, that’s also a good way to boost your manhood.
The Secret Workout Side Effect
According to a new report presented to the American Physiological Society, just working out regularly can boost your T levels.
The effect is small in men who maintain a healthy weight. But overweight men – who are more likely to have low T – get a big boost from their workouts.
Regular workouts help you slim down, build muscle, improve balance, strengthen your heart and so much more.
After working out for 12 weeks, overweight and obese men saw a 19.3% average jump in their bio-available T levels.2
And we’re not talking spending hours in the gym, either. The men simply walked briskly for 40 – 60 minutes, 1 to 3 days per week for 12 weeks. At the top end, that’s barely the minimum amount of activity recommended for adults.
Of course, if you’d like to challenge yourself, other studies show intense resistance training also gives T levels a big boost.3
That’s the workout side. What about losing weight?
Trimming Down Builds T Up
In a 2012 study, doctors looked at T levels in 900 men. All the volunteers had the beginnings of problems handling blood sugar. (Men with blood sugar issues tend to have low T levels.)
About a third of their volunteers began working out 150 minutes per week and cut down on fat and overall calories. Another third took a common blood-sugar drug. The rest of the volunteers took a placebo.
After a year, the lifestyle group had dropped an average of 17 pounds. Almost half (46%) of those in the group who started with low T had built their T levels up to normal. The other two groups started with about the same number of men with low T, but none of them saw a jump in their T levels.
In fact, the rise in T closely paralleled the rate of weight loss and decrease in waist size.4
So, if you’re overweight, just dropping a few pounds could make a big difference. To help you along, here are a few nutrients that can also promote healthy T levels.
Ginkgo Gets Right to the Source
Ginkgo biloba is usually thought of as a memory booster. It’s proven to boost cerebral blood flow. But that’s not all.
Animal studies show Ginkgo has a direct effect on Leydig cells – the cells that produce testosterone.
In a Chinese study, doctors exposed Leydig cells to Ginkgo. The cells were from subjects with blood sugar problems – commonly linked to low T.
After exposure to Ginkgo, the cells began making and secreting higher levels of T.5
I haven’t seen human studies on Ginkgo and Leydig cells yet, but the odds are good this potent herb will have the same effect.
There’s no question about this next nutrient.
Zinc – The Manhood Mineral
Zinc tends to concentrate in the male reproductive system. Low zinc levels are also linked to infertility and other sex-related issues.
So it’s probably not a big surprise that zinc can affect T levels.
A U.S. multi-university study looked at a group of healthy men, aged 20 – 80. The scientists created a low zinc status in some of the younger men by restricting the zinc in their diets. Some of the older men were already low in zinc.
They measured T levels in all their subjects before, during, and after the study period. Here’s what they found:
• Cutting down on zinc in the young men’s diets triggered a drop of almost 75% in their serum T levels.
• Giving the older men zinc supplements nearly doubled their serum T levels.
You can boost your zinc intake by snacking on a handful of pumpkin seeds a few days a week. Or by taking a supplement. Preferably one that also contains…
Indole-3-Carbinol – Your Top Estrogen Buster
As men get older, estrogen – the “female” hormone – becomes a problem. As you age, and your T levels drop, your estrogen levels begin to rise.
This is a devastating one-two punch to your manhood. You’re losing the hormone that defines you as a man. At the same time, levels of a feminizing hormone are on the rise.
Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is a defensive compound found in vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts. It’s also a powerful defense against estrogen build-up. It has such a potent effect, scientists refer to I3C as a “negative regulator” of estrogen.7
I3C works in many ways. But the most important one to you as a man is its ability to block the enzyme aromatase.
You see, aromatase converts T into estrogen. But I3C partially shuts down the enzyme’s activity, preventing conversion and supporting healthy T levels.8
