If you’re a healthy guy in your 30s and 40s, your testosterone will be declining—but that doesn’t mean you actually need treatment. “If you go in and say, ‘Well, you know, in the past 10 years I’ve gotten more tired, I’m having trouble keeping weight off…’ that’s simply not enough—it’s a natural phenomenon!” Jacques Baillargeon, ., an epidemiologist at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, told Men’s Fitness. However, if you’re a man north of 50, and you’re having difficulty getting it up, you’re feeling depressed, and you’re generally unhappy, you should seek out TRT.
An amazing mineral for masculine health, zinc is used to make testosterone, and also signals for the synthesis of testosterone. Many men don’t get enough. And if you get way too little zinc, you might end up developing man-boobs while experiencing ball shrinkage … making it easy to see why this is so important for test. Read some reviews and you’ll see me freaking out over how awesome zinc is for virility and testosterone. Look for a good form though, like Zinc Gluconate or Zinc Citrate — cheap forms of Zinc are not only less absorbable (and less effective), they tend to have more of its notorious side effects, like stomach upset or tasting metal in your mouth. Verdict: very positive.
