Symptoms of Low Testosterone, Fight Back!

Symptoms of Low Testosterone, Fight Back!
Advertising

Men experience different symptoms of low testosterone, or low T. From obvious maladies such as lowered libido, loss of body or facial hair, fatigue, increase in body fat, or mood swings to not so obvious breakdown of tissues in the body, loss of bone mass, and lowered semen count. Andropause is the male counterpart to menopause. The symptoms are very real and can be physically and emotionally debilitating. Women’s drastic decrease in estrogen as they enter menopause produces rapid onset of symptoms. But sometimes, men’s hormone levels can shift more rapidly and produce the unwanted low T symptoms.

What is Low T?

Low testosterone is medically diagnosed as when a blood test shows levels below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL), see reference. Work, social life, kids (and grand kids), perhaps aging parents, and many other daily stresses demand a lot. To get the most out of life, you have to not only have the energy for all that, but also the things you love to do. When symptoms of low T strike, life is drudgery. What’s a guy to do?

Reduce Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Exercising a minimum of 30 minutes a day, reducing stress, and eating wholesome greens and protein-rich foods may be helpful in maintaining healthy testosterone. But also natural Ayurvedic ingredients (holistic Indian herbs) may boost testosterone levels and promote healthier hormonal output. Increasing the intake of beneficial herbs can help reduce symptoms and support healthy erectile function, proper body mass, and your zest for life. Bring back that confidence with these restorative herbs. Try the recipe at the end of the article!

Seven Potent Herbs for Low Testosterone

Cardamom

    Cardamom, known as the “queen of all spices,” is an important herb in Ayurveda. Chiefly known for its aromatic use as a condiment and seasoning for cooking, cardamom is loaded with valuable lipids and antioxidants. Cardamom is rich in α-terpinyl acetate (a hormone regulator) and antioxidant enzymes that promote not just the regulation of testosterone, but increases muscle mass. This potent spice induces Glutathione (an antioxidant) and breaks down oxidative stress (a free radical that can lead to low testosterone). With a flavor similar to a combination of cinnamon and nutmeg, it is enjoyable to add to beverages and food. But you can also get cardamom in capsules at many health food and vitamin stores, particularly if they specialize in Ayurveda.

    Pumpkin Seeds and Oil

      Pumpkin seeds and oil are delicious and nutritious sources of many micro-nutrients that most men miss in their diets. Pumpkin seeds contain magnesium, an important mineral that helps to regulate and increase testosterone and IGF-1 (insulin growth factors) as well as reduce tissue damage. These wonderful seeds also contain leucine, an amino acid which aids in the healthy oxidation of fats. This nutrient is important for other aging-related challenges as their good fats are lubrication joints and connective tissue. This is very helpful to those who suffer from erectile dysfunction. Pumpkin seeds are available in most grocery stores and health food stores. They make great protein-rich snack that is also low in cholesterol and very easy to keep a bag in the desk or pantry. Pumpkin oil may be harder to find, but it is available in many supplement and vitamins stores.

      Tribulus Terrestris

      Known for nearly 400 years as a tonic for low testosterone in Ayurveda as well as Chinese traditional medicine, this super Ayurvedic herb is known for its vast healing properties. Its testosterone-boosting powers have many benefits, which is why many bodybuilders use tribulus root after an anabolic-steroid cycle. Tribulus can also be used to build tissue without lifting weights. It increases sex drive, a pleasant mood, and reduces the chances of premature ejaculation. One gram of tribulus can have amazing results since tribulus stimulates leutinizing hormones which instruct Leydig cells to create ample testosterone cells. The effects are increased desire, prolonged erection, and intensified orgasm. Because of its popularity with bodybuilders, tribulus terrestris is available in many supplements stores that specialize in bodybuilding. You can also find it in many health food stores and supplements stores that specialize in Ayurveda.

      Honey

        Considered a sacred element in Ayurveda tradition, honey is a delicious, energizing companion to your breakfast, afternoon tea, or after-dinner sweet. Honey makes an excellent natural sweetener even in healthful smoothies. Honey contains Chrysin, a potent flavone that blocks the conversion of testosterone into estrogen. The mineral boron does the same thing, which, by the way, honey contains in its profile. This means higher levels of testosterone are preserved. This sweet dose also contains active enzymes and amino acids which play a fundamental role in mood. A little honey can put a little more than just a smile on your face, it is also a great aphrodisiac too!

        Be sure to use unprocessed honey and preferably local honey. The more local the better because of added benefits of allergy remediation and prevention.

Its zinc and selenium content also boost testosterone. Shilajit is also a natural stress reducer and therefore elevates mood.

Shilajit is available online and in a few stores that specialize in Ayurveda. Be sure to use the natural tar-like resin form. Extracts and powders are not real shilajit.

            Almonds are a delicious handful and can be added to your favorite smoothie or salad. This amazing nut contains important nutrients that can facilitate testosterone production and sustain healthy hormone levels. These nutrients include calcium, magnesium, potassium, fatty acids, and vitamin E. These are involved in the function of the testicular glands and adrenal glands, chief glandular operators that regulate and increase testosterone. Most importantly, almonds contain L-Arginine, an amino acid known for tissue building, mood balance, erectile function, and an arousal factor. L-Arginine also promotes nitric oxide which is important for tissue engorgement when the penis is erect and for the regulation of anabolic functions.

            Almonds are available in many stores so get some today and keep them handy for when you need a protein-rich energy boost. Eat up and have a handful a day in your favorite recipes. Try almond butter, too.
