As we age our primary sex hormones decline. It is unfortunately inevitable as life goes on. This rate of Testosterone decline is approximately 1-3% per year after 25-28 years of age.
However, in the modern lifestyle, it is no longer just ageing that causes a decline in Testosterone.
It is also the burden of our overly stressed, over worked, chemically abundant environments laden with pollutants, pesticides, Xeno-Estrogens and Cortisol , the master driver of hormonal imbalance.
As a result of this environmental burden, low Testosterone (T) can result in such symptoms as:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Low Libido
- Low mood, anxiety, depression, etc.
- Reduced muscle mass
- Inability to recover from exercise or general workload
- Storing stubborn fat around lower stomach, lower back and chest (i.e. “man boobs”)
- Slower metabolism
- Thinning of hair
- Erectile issues
