Testosterone is a major hormone for men that impacts sexual and reproductive function, muscle mass, hair growth, as well as maintaining bone density and levels of red blood cells. When testosterone levels start to naturally decline, around the age of 30, men can start seeing symptoms of low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and depression. Here are some ways to help keep the testosterone levels up: lose those extra pounds, do high-intensity and strength-training workouts, get your daily dose of zinc and vitamin D, reduce stress levels, limit or eliminate sugars, and eat healthy fats such as olive oil, nuts, and avocados.
A healthy lifestyle is very important as we age. If your testosterone levels continue to be low, consult with your doctor for a blood test to get an accurate picture.
