Men and women both suffer from both low testosterones. It is a hormone which regulates the sex organ, metabolism and other bodily function. Exercise, stress and sleep are shown to affect hormone level. Testosterone has been demonized by society as the rage inducing hormone which makes guys massive, filled with aggression and covered with its.
High level of testosterone will help you to build more muscle but also help you to reduce body fat and your risk of disease, cancer and depression. Testosterone is the core that makes men, a man, and with each generation, men are producing lower and lower level of this powerful hormone. The causes are not singular but with the reduction of fat consumption and an increasingly inactive population, it makes a sense that men would produce lower level of testosterone.
There are ways to increase Testosterone naturally. They are:
- Consume More Fat: Fat has been verified by doctors. Saturated and monounsaturated fats won’t make you fat. Sugar and carbohydrate contribute more to your waistline and heart diseases than naturally healthy fats. Fats also naturally raise testosterone levels in men. Testosterone is produced in the testes by converting cholesterol in to testosterone.
- Get more sleep and have less stress in your life: One of the ways to measure testosterone levels is in relation to cortisol levels. A lack of sleep can result higher cortisol level. You should aim to get 6 hours of sleep a night and 8 hour is more ideal. The more stress we have in our lives, the higher our cortisol level will be. This can happen if we get less sleep and stress increases which in turn again raise our cortisol levels.
- Avoid plastics: Environment can be a great cause for our testosterone levels. The chemicals you find in most plastics or plastics bottles of water which you buy are filled with estrogen. To solve this problem, you should stop drinking water in plastics bottle and never heat your food items in plastics container.
