Men’s Testosterone Levels Dropping At An Alarming Rate. What To Do?

A study published in JAMA showed that between 2010 and 2013, prescriptions for testosterone therapy were up by more than 50 percent. There are a lot of reasons, like ever-increasing stress levels and the obesity epidemic, for this shift, and it’s something we all need to address right away. As it turns out, low testosterone can actually exacerbate symptoms that can cause low testosterone, causing a downward spiral that can affect a man’s health in really negative ways. Here’s what to do about it:

1. Intermittent fasting

Intermittent fasting is one of the most effective ways to lose weight and restore testosterone levels—and it’s usually tolerated better by men than women

2. Lifting weights

Weightlifting at least three to four times per week helps raise testosterone and makes our cells more sensitive to insulin

3. Cutting these foods out of your diet

Limiting or omitting alcohol, dairy, or grains

4. Getting enough high-quality sleep

Less than five hours of sleep can decrease testosterone and sperm count after only one week

5. Try supplements and herbs

Good option is d-aspartic acid, which has been shown to increase LH, which makes testosterone. Vitamin D, a precursor to testosterone, can also help optimize testosterone levels, especially when ranges are around the typical 40 to 50 ng/mL
