A ‘ new’ life at 40 for men
RESEARCH has shown that all men will experience a decline in their hormone levels as they age. Testosterone will start to deplete between the ages of 35 and 65, causing symptoms of “andropause” or “low T”. This condition is one of the main triggering factors of mid- life crisis in men. The severity of symptoms differs from one man to another.
Just like menopause in women, a decrease in testosterone as men age is normal. However, a drop to below normal levels will lead to a higher risk of experiencing symptoms of testosterone deficiency.
Symptoms of low T include depression, fatigue, loss of motivation, low sexual drive, bone and muscle tissue loss.
Furthermore, a lower concentration of testosterone can increase the risk of developing age- related diseases, depression and infertility.
Low testosterone levels have been scientifically proven to be associated with heart disease, depression, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cognitive disorders and even osteoporosis. Low testosterone also leads to poor quality of sleep.
Through various mechanisms, testosterone has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system. It helps to prevent internal blood clotting, increases blood flow to the heart and gives you better endothelial function, all of which helps to control blood pressure levels.
The heart is not the only organ that benefits from healthy testosterone levels. With normal levels, you will enjoy: – Increased muscle strength – Decreased body fat – Better insulin sensitivity ( lower blood sugar) – Better mobility – A greater sense of well- being – Denser bones – Increased potency – Better mood – More energy – Better mental function – Clearer speech – Higher HDL cholesterol levels
So, the million- dollar question is, how does one raise one’s testosterone levels? Apart from combining regular exercise with a healthy diet rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats such as olive oil, canola oil and safflower oil, there are a number of treatments that can help with this condition. These are mostly in the form of testosterone replacement therapy, which is carried out under careful medical supervision.
If you would like to give natural therapies a try, a safe, effec- tive way to increase your “T” levels is by supplementing with a well- researched, patented plant ingredient called Testofen.
Natural and safer way to restore testosterone levels
Testofen is a unique fenugreek seed extract standardised to 50% Fenuside. Testofen has the ability to enhance libido and improve muscle mass, properties not seen in any other now available non- standardised fenugreek extracts. This extract was shown to displace a small fraction of bound testosterone; as roughly 98% of testosterone on the blood is bound and inactive, displacing 1% of this doubles free ( active) testosterone levels with resulting increases in sexual function and muscle strength.
A study on 60 healthy men aged 25 to 52 receiving 600mg of Testofen per day for six weeks showed that 85.2% of the subjects on Testofen experienced an overall positive effect ( an increase in libido) as early as three weeks into the study.
In addition, the study participants reported an increase in muscle strength, energy levels and well- being, though the formulation had no impact on mood or sleep.
Another study was conducted on males aged between 18 and 35 who combined exercise with 600mg of Testofen a day for at least one month. At the end of the study period, subjects showed a significant increase in muscle mass and strength.
Testofen was also proven to be well tolerated by all subjects of the study. It is classified as safe ( GPO- US Government Printing Office) with no adverse effects on kidney function, liver enzymes and blood biochemistry.
