Testosterone is an amazingly important hormone, both in men and women. But based on the basic human biology, it has a more characterising effect on men. It is related to the muscle mass (just take a look at any professional wrestler. No need to mention Brock Lesnar for being reported on some sort of substance for his last UFC march against Mark Hunt. As I said, there is no need to mention it. Also, no need to mention that UFC has become some sort of Joke! We shouldn’t even compare it to WWE! Maybe Joe Rogan doesn’t want you to know this!!)
Besides the Muscle mass effect of testosterone, it also has effect on stamina, mental capacity to focus, adequate number of red blood cells (these cells are responsible for getting nutrition to all of your cells), bone growth, mental health (sense of wellbeing and something called grit). It also help your immune system to better fight disease. There are reports that Charlie Sheen, was on testosterone, because that’s a well-kept secret in fighting HIV infection and preventing it to go to a full blown AIDS.
So, up to this part, we have established that testosterone is a very important hormone. But there are factors that factors that prevent the body to produce enough testosterone. Some of those factors cannot be changed so easily (like aging, you cannot reverse the aging factor “allegedly”).
But there are couple of very important testosterone reducing causes that can be overturned:
Stress is one of those things that you hear about all the time but don’t know how it really affects your whole biology. Well, here is a bro science approaches to describe the effect of stress on testosterone inhibition: when you are stressed out, your body produced number of hormones to help you battle it. Cortisol and adrenaline are two big ones, that your hypothalamus (part of your third eye, according to Joe Rogan, and yes, he doesn’t want you to know this! “Allegedly”) produces during stress. These two, put all of your body resource inline to battle the perceived treat and stop the production of other things, including testosterone in the back of the line.
2- Artificial estrogens, or estrogen mimicking hormones or the infamous Xenoestrogens
You see, the polymers, plastics or most of oil driven wonders that we have created in the past 100 years, have similar molecular structure as our own biology (the carbon ring thing). So, if we somehow consume them (which means put it into our body), we might end up injecting ourselves with stuff that can switch stuff on and off in us, but previously wasn’t supposed to be inside of us.
You make ask: what containe xonostrogens? Or what has artificial estrogens?
Most of the stuff that are made of Phthalates (plastics), PVS (it is usually used in plumbing) and Bisphenol A (BPA) (you can find this in most consumer goods, like water bottles).
Yes, as Donald Trump would say: “SAD!”. Of all things, the beer is making you lose your testosterone! They have done a study on moderate consumption of beer, and it showed it drops the testosterone level by whooping 16.5%!! I know, they didn’t do a study on not so moderate consumption of beer. If you think that the large number of beer will increase your testosterone levels, just like our facebook page here! You are our type of guy!
4- Refined carbs – which mean bread, sugar, cookies, and cakes can lower your testosterone levels.
Basically anything that makes your insulin level to shoot up, will inhibit pathways of production of other hormones, including testosterone. Maybe, that’s why Brock Lesnar has such high level of testosterone (they say, he lives on beef jerky!)
5- Hormones that you take in via your food, including the meet you consume might reduce your testosterone levels
So, the industrial farming is a thing nowadays. And yes, they “allegedly” use all sorts of technologies to increase their meet production. That means, growth hormone and testosterone (to increase the muscle mass, dah!). But wait a minute, You may ask:
Why testosterone in food decreases my testosterone level? Shouldn’t testosterone in food increases my testosterone levels?
Ah, you cheeky monkey. Yes, the testosterone in food increases your testosterone levels for now, but if you keep putting testosterone in your body via your mouth (there are other ways of consuming testosterone via mouth that just eating meet!), you might atrophy your own production glands.
6- Releasing your seeds, regularly.
Ok, we are going to speak in codes here. If you constantly satisfy your urges; you will reduce your testosterone levels. That means if you give yourself orgasm, via your own efforts (is that obvious enough?), that will reduces your testosterone production.
