What’s The Role of Testosterone?

Testosterone is responsible for the development of sexual organs at puberty. It initiates the process of sperm formation (spermatogenesis).

It is also responsible for the appearance of male secondary sexual characteristics, such as:

  • Hairiness
  • Voice
  • The development of muscle mass (which is an anabolic hormone)
  • Fat distribution in favor of the abdomen

It also acts on bone density, and when the testosterone level is low (due to age or anti-androgenic hormonal treatment), the risk of osteoporosis increases.

Finally, it is the behavior in the neuro-cerebral level and promotes:

  • Energy and fatigue
  • Motivation (this is a psychostimulant)
  • Aggressiveness
  • Libido

Nutrients That Can Help Boost Testosterone Levels

Testosterone levels in men starts to decline at a rate of approximately 1% a year starting the age of 30.

Aging-induced androgen hormone or testosterone decline is due to the over activity of your enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, which often converts androgen hormone or testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This process simultaneously decreases the number of testosterone within men, putting them vulnerable for prostate growth, androgenic alopecia (hair loss) as well as cancer.

However, environmental exposure to chemicals and pollution can also be causing this specific decline that occurs in men as soon as childhood, which is completely impacting their chemistry and biology. Recently, as an example, both statin drugs and also the active compound in Roundup herbicide had been found to hinder the testicle’s chance to produce androgen hormone or testosterone.

How Environmental Pollution Affect Your Testosterone Production?

The escalating volume of chemicals released into the environment cannot be pushed aside, as these types of toxins are disrupting creature and people endocrine devices.

What’s much more alarming can be that several endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) possess “gender-bending” traits.

EDCs are everywhere. They lurk with your house, leaching from human products such as personal hygiene products, compound cleansers, as well as contraceptive medications. They also finish up in your foodstuff and drinking water, causing you to unknowingly enjoy them.

EDCs present a threat to men’s health when they interfere having testosterone production, causing men to take on more feminine characteristics.

Here’s a proof: in many British waterways, 50 % of male fish had been found to provide eggs inside their testes. In line with Eurek Alert, 3 EDCs have been entering rivers as well as other waterways as a result of sewage systems for some time, altering the particular biology connected with male fish. It was also observed that fish species troubled by EDCs acquired 76 percent cut in their reproductive system function.

How to avoid EDCs?

Here is a list of SOME of the chemicals found in products we use daily and that have EDC properties:

  • Aluminum
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Sodium Palm Kernelate
  • Sodium StearateSodium
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • BicarbonateSodium
  • Alkyl Sulfate Lauryl
  • Betaine Cocamide
  • DEACetearyl Alcohol
  • Methyl paraben Propyl
  • ParabenGlycol
  • DisterateIsopropyl palmitate
  • Isopropyl myrisrate
  • Perfume
  • Color

If you see these ingredients in your soap, lip balm, shampoo… then you know it may be harmful for you and your family.
I only know one company that avoids all those chemicals in their products and it’s called Earth to Body.

Research presented in the Endocrine Society’s 2012 conference discussed the link between weight and androgen hormone or testosterone levels. Overweight males were more vulnerable to having low testosterone levels, and shedding pounds may alleviate this problem. Managing excess fat means you will need to manage your diet plan. Below are some methods to jumpstart a healthy diet:

1. Limit refined sugar in what you eat, as excessive sugar intake (mainly fructose) may be the driving power of weight problems. But never replace sugar with artificial sweeteners, because these also have their share of unwanted side effects.

2. It can be ideal to help keep your entire fructose intake, including fructose from fruits, below 20 grams per day. If you do have a chronic condition like diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, it is wise to help keep it under 15 grams daily.

3. Eliminate processed carbohydrates from processed ingredients, like cereals and soda, given that they spike your blood sugar.

4. Consume plant carbohydrates as well as healthy fat. Your body requires the particular carbohydrates from fruit and vegetables rather than from grains or sugars. Besides mono- and polyunsaturated fats present in avocados and raw nuts, saturated fats may also be essential in order to build the testosterone production. According to research, there was a decrease in testosterone stores in people who consumed a diet low in animal-based fat.

Healthy fat that could boost the testosterone levels include:

5. Consume organic dairy products, like high-quality cheeses and also healthy proteins, to raise your branch chain amino acids (BCAA). In line with research, BCAAs had been found to increase testosterone, particularly when taken with training. You can find testosterone supplements offering BCAAs:
