Boost testosterone naturally

In recent years a diagnosis has become more and more common: hypogonadism, also known as low T, and usually named testosterone low level. Studies show that about a quarter of the men tested for low testosterone have levels below normal.

On the one hand, testosterone low level is caused by an aging population, on a global level.

But, what is testosterone and why does it decline?

We like to say that testosterone is what put hair on a man’s chest. It is actually a hormone which in men’s bodies is found in a higher quantity. It starts to decline after a man celebrates his 30th birthday.

How low is too low when we are talking about testosterone?

A man’s testosterone level is determined by a specific blood test. The bottom of a man’s normal total testosterone range is about 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). The upper limit is about 800ng/dL depending on the lab.

The diagnosis is given by a doctor but the treatments are various.
