Testosterone. You hear it everywhere, but what is it, and should I just take as much as possible? The short answer is NO!
and here's why...
Testosterone is a sex hormone, found in Men and Women, but is a lot more apparent in Men. Men usually experience their highest level of testosterone in their early 20's. and slowly dwindles with age. That is why is very important for Men, especially older Men, to have healthy testosterone levels. Having too little testosterone is bad, but having above-average levels of testosterone can be just as bad.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone Levels include:
Lack of Physical Energy
Diminished Mental Sharpness
Stronger Aches and Pains
Symptoms of Above-Average Testosterone Levels include:
More Susceptible to Injuries
Less Risk-Averse (Increased Risky Behavior i.e. gambling)
Higher Blood Pressure
Higher Chances of Liver Disease
Increased Red Blood Cell Count (Which can lead to higher chances of strokes)
Benefits After Testosterone Level Adjustments include:
Normalize Blood Pressure
Helps Against Heart Attacks
Increase In Mental Sharpness
Increase in Muscle Growth
Increased Energy and Stamina
It's important that before considering testosterone supplements, that you find out where you stand by first finding out what your testosterone levels are first. Simply taking as much testosterone supplements as possible is ill-advised. With no idea of how much you should be putting into your body, taking too much testosterone or too little, can lead to not reaching the desired results you had in mind, and may even create new problems.
