WHY WOMEN NEED TESTOSTERONE?

Why women Need Testosterone

Under the pretext that the women at the base have less testosterone than men, usually we forget to tell them that it is vital to age well; they also care about their levels of this important hormone. Not just their female hormones (estrogen and progesterone).

Although testosterone is best known as the male hormone, giving hair, muscles, aggression and desire, it is essential to women. Testosterone is used to protect the brain, muscles, bones, their heart.

Perhaps even more important, it’s the lack of testosterone that gives soft buttocks, and hanged skin under the arms.

Menopause reduces the production of testosterone

Woman produces about 60% of the testosterone of a man. Most of the production takes place in the ovaries during the fertile period, but testosterone is produced directly in the tissues, where it is used. This is called the peripheral conversion.

Testosterone produced by a woman’s ovaries stops naturally at menopause. Therefore, from that time, many women start to miss testosterone and the consequences are not pleasant.

The lack of testosterone and lost of memory

This drop in testosterone is associated with a decrease in the capacity for representation in the space of a decline in memory and learning ability, and increased risk of dementia.

By studying postmenopausal healthy women who had taken a daily testosterone boosting natural supplement for 6 months had improved learning ability and memory.

The lack of testosterone makes you fat

Low testosterone increases the cholesterol level and makes you fat: this is the reason why, when a chicken is castrated it becomes a “capon” much fatter and much bigger.

Similarly, that’s what happens to women when they reach menopause and start having low testosterone, the fat begin to deposit around the belly and hips.

Testosterone deficiency destroys muscles, including the heart

Testosterone is the first anabolic steroid hormones, that is to say, promoting muscle growth, muscling and firming the body silhouette. Low testosterone therefore melt muscle mass. The first thing observed is a loss of tone under the arm because the muscle has melted.

But beware: the heart, too, is a muscle. A low level of testosterone leads to a reduction of the heart muscle and increases the risk of heart attack.

Any person with a cardiovascular disorder should carry out an assessment of testosterone.

The heart has more receptors for testosterone than other muscles. Testosterone stimulates the formation of new proteins, which makes the heart more enduring and more powerful. If you make a heart attack, it will be less severe if you have a lot of testosterone, and your risk of death will be lower.

Moreover, testosterone promotes dilatation of the coronary arteries. In a majority of patients taking testosterone is effective in reducing the arrhythmia and angina (heart pain caused by lack of oxygen, usually related to a decrease in blood supply).

Normal levels of testosterone can prevent the formation of blood clots.

Testosterone seems to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women.

Caution, however, an excessive rate increases the expression of platelet receptors thromboxane A2, which causes blood vessel contraction (effect “vasoconstrictor”), not to mention potential side effects: shoot exaggerated hair, enlargement of the clitoris, etc.

Testosterone protects against osteoporosis

Osteoporosis threatens all postmenopausal women.

It exposes fractures, particularly of the hip, wrist and head of the femur. However, testosterone deficiency was found in 71% of subjects with hip fracture, versus 32% in patients monitored with an average age of 73 years.

This suggests that lack of testosterone increases the risk of osteoporosis.

Energizing effect and anti-stress

Testosterone makes humans cope with stress.

It awakens the right mood. Low levels of testosterone are responsible for a background of anxiety or fear.

In extreme cases, this excess of emotion in the form of hysterical crises; the ability to address small problems with confidence disappears, thus establishing a permanent fatigue.

Address the lack of testosterone

To address the lack of testosterone, the most effective is to work with a good doctor trained in bioidentical hormone therapy, as it may prescribe testosterone replacement, in a natural form, not dangerous, and of course to corresponding rates your needs.

But before going that far, there are many strategies to increase your testosterone naturally. They apply to everyone and have only positive side effects.

Other that sleeping right and losing weight, there are some natural supplements with no or minimal side effects that can help women increase or normalize their testosterone levels.
Here’s a list of scientifically proven supplements that increases testosterone levels:

If you know a food that will increase testosterone levels in women which isn’t on this list, please leave a comment with the name and the source.
