A ‘ new’ life at 40 for men

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BODY, MIND & SOUL - WELLNESS -

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.
