No longer the same after 40
AFTER the age of 40, the feeling is not the same anymore. Declining testosterone levels is the main culprit to the downhill spiral of performances of the body. This also means the lower level of testosterone is no longer able to maintain the male characteristics effectively.
The obvious decline usually starts at 40, medically termed as the start of “andropause” or commonly called “low T” condition. It may show the early signs of andropause, such as lacking in areas such as energy, concentration, muscles and strength, agility, stamina, interest, vigour and confidence.
Starting at age 30, men experience a drop in testosterone by about 10% every decade. Even though the body still continues to produce testosterone, it is no longer effective as testosterone is inactivated rapidly by a type of protein called globulin, whose production increases as one ages.
This leads to the decrease of active testosterone in the blood, causing functional symptoms of low T.
This leads to the decrease of active testosterone in the blood, causing functional symptoms of low T. Studies have shown that total testosterone decreased by approximately 30% in healthy men between the ages of 25 and 75. Free testosterone levels decline even more significantly, approximately 50%.
Testofen is an extract of the herb fenugreek, which is natural and used commonly in East Asia cuisines and for medicinal purposes. It is standardised to saponin glycoside called Fenuside, a unique compound which displaces testosterone from the SHBG, releasing more active testosterone into the blood and for circulation around the body.
Research has shown that men taking Testofen demonstrated improvement in testosterone-related properties. This includes an increase of male functions (androgenic functions), an increase in muscle tone and strength (anabolic function).
About 85.2% of men age 25 to 52 receiving 600mg of Testofen per day for six weeks showed an overall positive effect in the increase of libido as early as three weeks, with an increase in muscle strength, energy levels and well being.
When combined with exercise, 600mg of Testofen a day for at least a month displayed a significant increase in muscle mass and strength.
Living a youthful and interesting life after 40s is possible with the reactivation of the testosterone levels. Supplementing diet with Testofen plus regular exercise is the secret to uplift active testosterone levels.
