Men’s Use of Testosterone Enhancing Supplements on the Rise

testosterone supplementsMiddle aged men in America’s use of testosterone enhancing supplements is climbing rapidly, raising concerns as to why we lose so much testosterone as we age.  Studies are constantly done on the effects of LOW T on men as they pass middle age.  Diet can have a lot to do with decreased testosterone production, and lets be honest, the average middle aged man’s diet in the U.S. is not great.  That is why more males turn to testosterone enhancing supplements from HRL.

In the clinical environment, testosterone replacement therapy is approved specifically for the treatment of abnormally low testosterone levels. Testosterone helps build muscle, reduce body fat and improve sex drive as males mature during puberty and beyond.  But a study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine found that many men who get prescriptions for the hormone have no evidence of a deficiency at all, which tells the experts here at HRL that men are sitting on the couch and buying into the pharmaceutical companies advertising.  LOW T is the big buzz word in the advertising industry today.

The fact remains that if you eat well, exercise and take a daily all natural testosterone increasing supplement such as MAXIMUMT then you have nothing to worry about. The study previously mentioned showed that the number of older and middle-aged men prescribed the hormone has tripled since 2001. We believe that has everything to do with advertising for LOW T (decreased testosterone levels).

Men in their 40s attribute to the fastest-growing segment of male testosterone treatment patients. Only  half of men prescribed testosterone had a diagnosis of hypogonadism (a testosterone deficiency ailment), and only roughly 40 percent had erectile or sexual dysfunction. One third had a diagnosis of fatigue. Fatigue, energy loss and even decreased sex drive can be treated with all natural testosterone supplements, a healthy diet and exercise! Medical testosterone replacement therapy has negative side effects. It can cause thickening of the blood, acne and reduced sperm counts. Many PHDs are concerned that testosterone therapies raises the risk of heart disease and prostate cancer, these have not been clinically proven, but the concern is there.

Testosterone levels in men normally begin a gradual decline after the age of 30. Average male testosterone levels are around 1,000 nanograms per deciliter of blood. But testosterone levels can dip depending on many factors including sleep, exercise, sex, diet and the time of day. Some studies show that up to 30 percent of men ages 40 to 79 have an actual testosterone deficiency, though only a small percentage actually develop clinical symptoms like depression, hot flashes and erectile dysfunction.
