EverlyWell: Natural ways to Increase Testosterone
Chief Medical Officer Explains Natural Techniques to Boost Testosterone
Testosterone can boost athletic performance, increase sexual drive, and even influence mood. As men get older, average testosterone levels decrease. This can cause loss of muscle, increased body fat, and decreased sexual energy. For many men, these changes can feel like a loss of masculinity.
For this reason, as they get older, many men begin wondering how they increase their testosterone. While there are medications that can boost testosterone levels, these medications come with certain health risks including blood clots, so recently much attention has focused on “natural” ways to increase testosterone. These ways can range from activity and lifestyle changes, to changes in the diet and supplements.
The best way to maintain healthy testosterone levels is to eat a balanced diet, avoid extremes in weight (overweight or underweight), and exercise regularly.
