No longer the same after 40

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Body, Mind & Soul -

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.

De­cline usu­ally starts at 40 years old, med­i­cally termed as the start of ‘an­dropause’.
