As a man you know the need for testosterone – it’s vital for a number of things including a lean physique, optimal cognitive function and healthy bones.
In fact doctors say men with low levels of testosterone can suffer from issues such as loss of lean muscle, increased body fat, fatigue, osteoporosis, low drive and motivation, difficulty concentrating and memory loss.
There are a few lifestyle factors that impact testosterone levels including chronic stress, lack of physical activity, certain foods and chemicals, as well as environmental factors.
A recent post on MensHealth.com highlighted the 3 biggest slayers of testosterone ie. Sugar, Alcohol and lack of sleep.
In fact a study was quoted which claimed that a man’s testosterone level before and after consumption showed a difference of 25%. When blood alcohol levels are high, testosterone is at its lowest.
