Testosterone, The good, the bad and the natural
This is because a man’s testosterone level – which peaked in his mid to late 20’s – has started to decline. So the very essence of what makes men MEN slowly decreases. This leads to a bevy of symptoms and issues for men over 35. Things like getting tired quickly, losing muscle and endurance, and decreasing performance (and even interest) in the bedroom.
But this is the 21st century, and there are products available to help men regain the testosterone levels they had when they were younger. Unfortunately, some testosterone products (like creams and enhancers and such) can be dangerous, and lead to side effects.
These side effects can include:
- Contributing to sleep apnea.
- Cause a man’s body to make too many red blood cells (polycythemia), which can increase the risk of heart disease.
- Cause excessive acne or other skin reactions.
- Stimulate non-cancerous growth of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and possibly stimulate growth of existing prostate cancer.
- Enlarge breasts (“man boobs”).
- Limit sperm production or cause testicle shrinkage.
There’s a sense of irony here. For example, a man may take testosterone to help him feel more attractive and virile, yet the very thing he’s taking gives him acne, bigger “man boobs”, and smaller testicles…
A Natural Testosterone Increase May Be the Answer
However, there are some new supplements sold in health food stores and online that aid your body in producing more of its own testosterone. Having your body produce testosterone on its own (as opposed to introducing more testosterone like creams and other therapies do) would seem to make sense, as your body knows best what it can handle. Add in that these new supplements are all-natural, and you have an ideal product.
Given the benefits that these natural supplements offer (increased libido and virility, increased energy, and more muscle), it’s no wonder a national chain like GNC reports that Test x180 (one of the leading all-natural testosterone supplements) has become one of its hottest sellers. The company that manufacturers Test X180 is giving away samples of the products to qualifying customers who request them online. This is great news for men everywhere!
