Andropause, Low Testosterone and Men’s Health

by | Jul 8, 2021 | General Health

It’s not just women who go through “the change.” Men experience something called andropause which is a male menopause and it can begin to happen in the early 40’s, in fact testosterone levels begin to decline in men after the age of 35!

Testosterone plays a significant role in maintaining strength, sex drive and energy levels in both men and woman. It’s a critical hormone to maintain because muscle strength is associated with lower mortality rates.

The empowering news is the inevitable decline of testosterone can be slowed and even reverted through exercise. Squats and deadlifts are most effective, but any high volume, higher weight activity is going to assist men in maintaining testosterone levels.

I’ve put together a few helpful tips for increasing and maintaining testosterone levels and I’m always happy to help my male clients reclaim their vitality through easy and healthy practises in their lives.

 Eat A Healthy Diet 

Consider eating a more plant based diet 

Ensure a variety and rotation of healthy foods are incorporated into your weekly routine 

Include lean proteins, healthy fats, fruits and plenty of vegetables 

Exercise Regularly and Lift Weights  

– Include 2-3 days of resistance training in your weekly fitness schedule 

– Aim for 150 minutes of moderate cardiovascular activity per week, even just a brisk walk is going to do wonders for your health

Moderation is key when it comes to alcohol  

Alcohol is connected to increased inflammation, cancer and excess calories

Men should aim to have no more than one drink a day

No smoking allowed  

It’s never too late to reduce or stop smoking all together

Spare tires are for the trunk, not your waste line 

Maintain a healthy waistline through healthy eating and exercise

Body Mass Index should be between 18.5 and 25

Keep stress in check  

DHEA is produced by the adrenal gland and this master hormone produces testosterone

Support your response to stress and incorporate strategies like mindfulness and meditation so you can support the adrenal gland and its function to produce testosterone ~ Visit my recent Blog Post for helpful tips on keeping stress in check

Try taking a B-complex and adrenal formula containing rhodiola, L-theanine, and  ashwagandha.
