Treating low testosterone without pills, patches or injections could be the right answer for many men
The goal of raising levels naturally is to retrain the body to maintain the right levels of testosterone for each man’s body.
And the best part is that the steps for treating your low testosterone naturally are EASY!
First, if you’re overweight, start trying to lose the extra way with an easy balanced diet and starting simple exercise that you love.
As you’re balancing your diet, make sure you get enough zinc. The recommended goal is 11 mg of zinc per day.
You can get zinc through diet by eating whole grains, nuts, red meat, poultry… and even seafood (a great reason to go for that lobster dinner!).
And every balanced eating plan should include reducing the amount of sugar you eat. The Endocrine Society has shown that sugar decreases testosterone levels by as much as 25 percent.
This was true even if the study participant had normal sugar levels (wasn’t pre-diabetic).
Find an exercise you love to do, and make time for it whenever you can.
It’s best to try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise per day in order to see the most benefit.
Exercise has been shown to increase testosterone levels, reduce stress (also bad for testosterone), and improve sleep.
And getting enough sleep is a critical part of the plan for increasing testosterone naturally.
The Journal of the American Medical Association published research that showed that a lack of sleep severely reduced testosterone levels in healthy men.
The effect was even more dramatic for men who already had low testosterone or another problem (such as diabetes or heart disease).
