1 MEN’S HEALTH MEN’S HEALTH IMPROVE YOUR VITALITY When you’re young, you feel as if you can conquer the world. But once you hit the big 4-0, you feel like you turn a corner with how you feel and start to notice changes. The hint of love handles around the mid-section and a loss of muscle tone, creeping blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. More fatigue, less focus, less enthusiasm, and just a sense of lost vitality. You may even see occasional hiccups in your performance in the bedroom. While all of these changes may seem like separate problems, they all potentially point to one thing in common — low testosterone levels. Testosterone is the most important sex hormone in men—and when your testosterone levels are low, you can experience a wide range of health problems. The symptoms of low testosterone can include a lot of nondescript symptoms includng lack of energy, a loss of interest in sex, difficulty maintaining an erection, and mood changes. But not having enough testosterone can also increase your risk of major conditions such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, for many men over the age of 20, their testosterone level drops with each passing birthday. But there are ways to regain and maintain your youthful vigor and virility. In the following pages, you’ll discover how diet and exercise can help you maintain healthy testosterone levels. You’ll also discover a wealth of safe and natural supplements that encourage your body to make more of its own testosterone. So turn the page and see how a few simple changes can help you regain healthy testosterone levels—and the life you love!
