The most well known symptoms of low testosterone levels relate to sexual health. Guys without enough of this hormone can suffer from erectile dysfunction, infertility and decreased sex drive.
Low testosterone can also lead to several physical changes that make you look less like a man, including decreased facial hair, decreased muscle mass and the development of breast tissue.
Not having enough testosterone can also sap your energy. Fatigue, tiredness, muscle weakness or loss and difficulty concentrating are all signs that your testosterone may be lacking.
Subpar testosterone levels have been shown to increase the risk of osteoporosis and anemia. They’ve also been linked to weight gain, particularly of dangerous abdominal fat.
However, low testosterone doesn’t just affect your physical health. It can also wreak havoc on your mental health, putting men at an increased risk for depression.
The benefits of restoring your levels to where they should be include:
* Increased sex drive
* Improved sexual function
* Increased muscle mass
* Greater energy
* Lower risk for heart disease and diabetes
* Better mood
* Improved memory
* And lots more!
These 101 secrets will show you how simple tweaks to your exercise routine, diet and lifestyle can have a big impact in getting your levels where you want them to be --- without dangerous drugs.
