Low-libido, exhaustion, restlessness, and mood swings might just mean that your testosterone levels suck.
Most people tend to think of testosterone as a strength related hormone. It is a corner stone for many metabolic functions, including bone density, muscle mass, mood, and cognition. It also has several positive effects on sexual function, but its most significant effect is on libido, sexual interest and arousal.
Missing the gains train. Low-T equals not making gains, creating an inability to create or retain muscle mass. Its hard to recruit more muscle fibers if you cant make more muscle fibers.
The best way to test testosterone is bio-available testosterone. Many tend to go the hormone replacement therapy (TRT) to fix it without first addressing the root of the problem. TRT has its place though- hypogonadism, testicular trauma, pituitary surgery, balls gone missing, etc… Most of us don’t have those conditions, so stick to a healthy diet and lifestyle
Common symptoms for low testosterone:
-Feeling weak all the time.
-Low energy levels
-Lack of self confidence
-Fat stored around the belly area
-Inability to sleep
Using lifestyle and nutrition might be the best approach to fixing it. A couple of things to think about:
-Eat read meat.
-Sleep 8+ hours.
-Have more sex.
-Increase your veggies intake.
-Have a down-regulation practice.
-Stay away from foods that are going to stimulate inflammation (sugars, toxins) and eat balanced meals.
