Dear Testosterone. You’re the manly hormone that makes me a guy.
I didn’t have much of a relationship with you until I hit puberty. Then we became good friends – boy did we! You deepened my voice and gave me bigger muscles. My bones got thicker and, heck, you even increased my penis size.
Thanks for that, Testosterone, because you helped me get sporadic erections and made me a stud in the bedroom.
So what happened to you, my friend, Mr. Testosterone? You were once so abundant that I could count on getting wood. Now that I’m over 40 I don’t see you as much. My sex drive ain’t firing on all-cylinders and my muscles aren’t so big anymore!
Testosterone, we had such a great relationship until I was about 40. But then you didn’t come around quite as often. And another dude made his acquaintance with me. This dude is a bit of a downer, dear testosterone. He calls himself Low T and he came with this baggage:
I really don’t like Mr. Low T, my good friend Testosterone, because he affects my life quality in ways I don’t enjoy. I heard a rumor that he typically shows up when Total Testosterone goes below 270ng/dL (9-38nmol/L). Is that true? Every man is different, but I need to know. Why did you do this to me?
If I’m gonna be totally honest, dear Testosterone, Mr. Low T is making life miserable. I feel less complete and I don’t have as much energy as when you and I had a stronger relationship. I guess I have to accept that I’m partly to blame here. I read up and learned that while Mr. Low T may start popping by as I get older, he may come more often with:
You know, I was really in shock when I heard that some habits I never even thought about affected my relationship with you, dear Testosterone. But now I know – I’ve got to clean up my act a little bit if I’m going to give Mr. Low T the butt-kicking he deserves.
I promise I’ll do it – because Testosterone makes me a man!
I Promise to Live By These Testosterone-Friendly Habits!
So here’s the deal, dear Testosterone. I recognize there are some things that affect my relationship with you beyond my control. I spoke with my doctor about some of them, like inherited diseases or problems with my testicles.
But I also know that I can do a lot of things to stay good with you, and keep that butt-ugly Mr. Low T at a reasonable distance. I promise to:
One more thing, dear Testosterone…
Despite my best efforts, I know as a man I could lose about 10% of you each decade after 30. And I just ain’t cool with that. I want my erections back, along with greater sex drive and more muscle.
I‘ll live by these good testosterone habits, but I’m also gonna do one more thing – I’m gonna put a little TestRX natural testosterone booster in my life, and feel like the man you want me to be.
See, I’ve heard about hormone replacement therapy and the risks linked to it. I also know researchers don’t know if it’s safe to use long-term, and the rumblings of health problems have me a little on edge.
So I’m gonna boost testosterone naturally, care of TestRX, and get you back with natural ingredients like Tongkat Ali. Combine TestRX with these good testosterone habits and I’ve got a feeling we’ll both get our groove back!
That’s assuming you’re open to discussing them with other men – low T symptoms range from the invisible to things that might truly shock you, like larger breasts and smaller testicles.
Yes, low T can actually shrink your balls and cause other symptoms that can make you feel like less of a man. But you’re not powerless here. Let’s review why some men get the uglier symptoms of low T and what they can do to boost testosterone – and what you can do too.
You’re already familiar with the ABCs of testosterone. It’s the most famous androgen, or male sex hormone. Among other things, it deepens your voice and puts hair on your chest. Testosterone helps you build muscles and fuels your sex drive. In fact, it even contributes to your penis size and famously helps you get wood.
Most of your testosterone comes from the testicles, though it’s made in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands. And your pituitary gland plays a role too, by releasing luteinizing hormone (LT) when testosterone gets low. This tells the testiscles to get with the program and make more of this most manliest of hormones.
Testosterone is low when you’re a boy. Then ‘the change’ happens and you go through puberty. That’s when you’ll first get body hair and your voice gets deep. And your sex drive…well, you know what happens then.
Each man is different, but testosterone tends to peak between age 30 and 40. After that it tapers off, generally at 10% each decade. That’s when you may start noticing these symptoms, which may get worse if you don’t do something about them:
There’s more where that came from too. Testosterone also regulates your mood and your relationships with others. Low T can lead to depression and feelings of worthlessness. Some evidence suggests low T may lead to osteoporosis as well. Despite what you’ve heard, men are not immune to bone fractures and loss of bone mass.
Most testosterone in your blood is bound to a hormone called sex hormone binding gloobulin (SHBG). Testosterone that is NOT bound to SHBG is called ‘Free Testosterone’, which can lead to sex problems and is even linked to kidney damage. ‘Total Testosterone’ is as the name implies. It’s all testosterone, including free testosterone and that bound by SHBG.
The average man has 270 to 1070 ng/dL (9-38 nmol/L) of total testosterone. His free testosterone should be 50-210 pg/mL (174-729 pmol/L). Below that and he’s flirting with low T.
You’ll need a doctor to diagnose low T. He’ll do that with a blood test, possibly done in the morning, when testosterone levels tend to be highest of the day.
You’ve got several options to fight low testosterone.
Unlike synthetic testosterone, TestRX is not a drug.
Instead, it’s formulated with natural ingredients like tongkat ali to stimulate testosterone naturally. Think of it as a gentle awakening – a coaxing of your body to start making more testosterone with natural ingredients. You’ll feel the difference and see it too, with bigger muscles and erections that come more frequently.
All guys are different, and this is not to say that all men should use TestRX to address low T. But it’s no coincidence that more guys are turning to TestRX, and feel more complete for doing just that.

Testosterone is well known for its anabolic effects on how strong and big our muscles will grow.
But certain factors determine how much testosterone your body will produce. For example, how you exercise, how long you sleep, what your diet consist of, and how often you get intimate directly effects your level of testosterone.
Males suffering from testosterone deficiency experience diminished libido( sex drive), erectile dysfunction, muscle weakness, loss of body hair, and depression.
These symptoms are caused because there is inadequate stimulation to the pituitary gland. When the pituitary gland is stimulated it produces luteinizing hormone (LH), also known as gonadotropins, which stimulates the testes to produce testosterone. This article will discuss methods to increase your testosterone level, thereby creating muscle growth.
Considerable clinical evidence supports these facts and I found an exceptionally high degree of agreement in the literature from various experts with wide-ranging biases on the soundness of these basic points to gain muscle fast.
Resistance training breaks down muscle fibers and testosterone rebuilds them by synthesizing available proteins. Intense resistance training also raises the body’s levels of serum testosterone proportionally to the amount of muscle mass stimulated and the intensity of the stimulation. Therefore, the best resistance exercises will stimulate the most muscle mass with the least amount of effort.
This leads us to what are called the compound or multiple-joint exercises as they tend to simulate the most muscle mass for the effort invested in performing them.
Anyone with a basic knowledge of weight lifting will likely find the classic compound exercises familiar. The standard group includes deadlifts, squats, lunges, bench presses, shoulder presses, dips, rows, pull-ups, chin-ups, leg presses, and so on.
These exercises excel at inducing our bodies to maximize testosterone naturally. Other exercises target as few muscles as possible to maximize the development of isolated muscles or small groups of muscles.
Aside from focusing on these multi-joint exercises, high intensity effort is also an important trigger to tell the body to release testosterone into the system.
Aim for sets of 5 to 10 reps where the last couple of reps require all-out effort if you’re looking to maximize testosterone production.
Of course, you have to build up gradually to this level of exertion so don’t push too hard if you’re just starting out. Hurting yourself and nursing injuries does nothing to increase the body’s production of anabolic hormones (primarily testosterone and human growth hormone).
20% to 30% of your calories should come from fats that provide essential fatty acids as these also tend to increase testosterone secretions in the body. Eat flax oil, fish oil, extra virgin olive oil, nuts, seeds, avocado, and fish to get the right kinds of fats on a daily basis.
Soy products reduce testosterone levels in men, so many researchers recommend avoiding them altogether.
While certain experts minimize the importance of the testosterone-reducing effects of soy, no one seems to dispute the fact that it does increase estrogen and reduce testosterone. So if you’re looking to maximize testosterone levels it does seem like a good idea to minimize your consumption of soy, though I don’t believe an occasional meal of tofu or steamed soy beans presents a threat.
Keep alcohol consumption to a minimum as well, as it also exerts a testosterone-lowering effect on the body, along with other anti-muscle-building effects like increasing fat storage and decreasing protein synthesis.
Considerable evidence exists, on another hand, that consuming low or moderate levels of alcohol can provide many health benefits. These health benefits, however, do not include building muscle tissue quickly.
High cortisol levels also lead to reduced testosterone so we want to minimize the amount of cortisol our bodies produce. The negative triggers that drive us to produce more cortisol include high stress, lack of sleep, and over training. So stay relaxed, enjoy yourself, and get plenty of sleep.
Arguably one of the most popular herb that has been used for centuries by the Chinese is Tribulus Terrestris. Tribulus is not a hormone, but works by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH), which signals the testes to produce more testosterone. This is important because it can provide a non-steroidal boost in testosterone levels.
There have been no reports of adverse effects in humans who have used Tribulus. However, nursing or pregnant women should avoid this product, as should children, since it has the potential to significantly alter hormonal chemistry. Men should consult their doctor if they have enlarged prostates before taking the herb.
With that said, all herbs mentioned in this article should be used with caution. Consult your doctor before taking any of these supplements, especially if you have any pre-existing health issues.
There are 3 specific ingredients that are robbing you of your manhood and slowly ruining your health. I’ve got one of them listed below.
MSG is a neurotoxin that’s permanently stored inside your brain. Studies have shown testosterone levels decrease when eaten over long periods. MSG has also been known to cause headaches, numbness, chest pains, and sweating.
MSG is hidden in frozen ready meals, ranch dressing, potato chips, Chinese food and most packaged and processed food. Food manufacturers try to disguise the ingredient by not using the word MSG on the packaging – instead look out for Glutamate, Monopotassium Glutamate, Textured Protein, Yeast Extract, Gelatin or Hydrolyzed Protein.
There’s 2 other ingredients that can rob your manhood from you and they can be found at the link below.
