Will Testosterone Save Our Health and Sex Lives?

With prescriptions for testosterone use soaring for both men and women — yes, women — a leading advocate for testosterone treatment is suggesting that this hormone, taken in synthetic form, may add years to your life, The Telegraph reports. Dr. Malcolm Carruthers said he believes up to 30 percent of men could benefit by the supplement.

Besides sparking up your sex life, it can help men lose weight, and helps prevent and improve diabetes, strengthen bones and reduce the risk of a fracture, Carruthers told The Telegraph. Critics, however, say the supplement isn’t risk-free — for example, some research suggests it can lead to heart attacks and strokes. They also suggest that there are other ways to lift your testosterone levels by getting more sleep, reducing your sugar intake and lifting weights. A breakfast of eggs and mushrooms (for magnesium) and eating plenty of good fats from oily fish nuts also helps, they say.

As I’ve noted before, other foods that can enhance your testosterone levels include garlic, whey protein, cruciferous vegetables, coconut, oysters, pomegranate and olive oil. In addition to lifting weights to build strength, I also recommend high-intensity interval training, which can help build up testosterone.

These short bursts of peak exercise, combined with intermittent fasting will also boost your growth hormone levels. Intermittent fasting boosts testosterone by increasing the expression of satiety hormones including insulin, leptin, adiponectin, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), colecystokinin (CKK) and melanocortins, all of which are known to potentiate healthy testosterone actions, increase libido and prevent age-related testosterone decline.
