A ‘new’ man is born at 40

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Bms Wellness -

SOME be­lieve that men above the age of 40 are most at­trac­tive to women, in terms of ma­tu­rity, fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity and life ex­pe­ri­ence.

How­ever, stud­ies have shown that men’s hor­mone lev­els be­gin to de­plete at this age, caus­ing a num­ber of signs and symp­toms that may af­fect their phys­i­cal, men­tal and emo­tional well-be­ing.

De­plet­ing hor­mone lev­els, par­tic­u­larly testos­terone, af­fects many as­pects of a man’s life, in­clud­ing his emo­tions, phys­i­cal build and sex­ual per­for­mance.

Testos­terone will start to de­plete be­tween the ages of 35 and 65, caus­ing symp­toms of “an­dropause” or “low T” – one of the main trig­ger­ing fac­tors of mid-life cri­sis in men.

The sever­ity of “low T” symp­toms dif­fers from one man to an­other. A de­crease in testos­terone as men age is nor­mal but a drop to be­low nor­mal lev­els will lead to a higher risk of testos­terone de­fi­ciency.

Symp­toms 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 os­teo­poro­sis. It 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 im­proves en­dothe­lial func­tion – all of which help to con­trol blood pres­sure lev­els.

The heart is not the only or­gan that ben­e­fits from healthy testos­terone lev­els. With nor­mal lev­els, men en­joy:

– In­creased mus­cle strength – De­creased body fat

– Bet­ter in­sulin sen­si­tiv­ity (lower blood


– 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 Apart from com­bin­ing reg­u­lar ex­er­cise with a healthy diet rich in mono-un­sat­u­rated and polyun­sat­u­rated fats, there are a num­ber of treat­ments that can help.

If you would like to give nat­u­ral ther­a­pies a try, a safe and ef­fec­tive way to in­crease your “T” lev­els is by sup­ple­ment­ing with a well-re­searched, patented plant in­gre­di­ent called Testofen.

It is a unique fenu­greek seed ex­tract stan­dard­ised to 50% Fenu­side with the abil­ity to im­prove mus­cle mass and male func­tions, prop­er­ties not seen in any other cur­rently avail­able non-stan­dard­ised fenu­greek ex­tracts.

A study showed that 85.2% of men age 25 to 52 re­ceiv­ing 600mg of Testofen per day for six weeks, ex­pe­ri­enced an over­all pos­i­tive ef­fect on male func­tions as early as three weeks into the study, as well as in­creased mus­cle strength, en­ergy lev­els and well-be­ing. The for­mu­la­tion had no im­pact on mood or sleep.

Men be­tween the ages of 18 and 35 who com­bined ex­er­cise with 600mg of Testofen a day for at least one month showed a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in mus­cle mass and strength.

Testofen was also proven to be well tol­er­ated by all in the study.

It is clas­si­fied as safe (GPO-US Gov­ern­ment Print­ing Of­fice) with no ad­verse ef­fects on kid­ney func­tion, liver en­zymes and blood bio­chem­istry.

Stud­ies show that to­tal testos­terone de­creases by ap­prox­i­mately 30% in healthy men be­tween the ages of 25 and 75.
