There is a surprising rise in cases amongst both men and women showing signs and symptoms of low testosterone.
Back in my generation, what are now called “baby boomers”, men in their 20’s and 30’s largely had full heads of hair, motivation, and stamina to do what they needed to do and get their jobs completed. Back in the 80’s, there were so many fewer toxins and pollutants in our environment, fewer chemicals in our food, and fewer micro-plastics and EMF surrounding all aspects of our home, work, and even natural environment. Nowadays, men are frequently losing their hair in their 20’s. There is an increase in hormonal disruption and decline in both men and women, sometimes beginning in their teens.
It is more common for men in their 20’s and 30’s to show signs and symptoms of testosterone decline such as fatigue, lowered motivation, gynecomastia, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, decreased sense of well-being, depressed mood, poor concentration and memory, moodiness, irritability, and loss of muscular strength. These symptoms can be debilitating and humbling for men of all ages.
Testosterone decline also occurs in women and shows itself in similar ways, with lowered libido being the hallmark symptom.
If you or someone you know is showing signs or having symptoms described above, it may be helpful to to see your doctor, get tested, and learn about available treatment options. There are a variety of medicinal quality herbal formulas that may be helpful that we will be showcasing in our online store this month, and we will share a discount promo code for your shopping convenience.
Below are some natural remedies that may help with diminished testosterone levels:
Saw Palmetto: Works by stopping the breakdown of testosterone into the byproduct dihydrotestosterone. This byproduct helps the body hold on to more of its testosterone and slow the growth of the prostate gland, which is a common occurrence among men.
Ashwagandha: Known to have robust antioxidant properties. Taking ashwagandha may protect cells in the testes from oxidative damage. The testes are where most of the testosterone is produced, so less damage to the testes may support testosterone levels.
DHEA: (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is a steroid hormone available in supplement form that is sometimes used to increase testosterone levels. It is produced naturally by the adrenal glands. DHEA is converted by the body into testosterone and other sex hormones. Levels should be checked by your doctor before taking this or any hormone-altering product.
