What women are Secretly Saying about Low Testosterone men.

/ by

According to a study conducted by Newsweek. Between 15 percent and 20 percent of couples are living in a marriage without sex.

 

My Partner Won’t Have Sex With Me.

 

According to a study conducted by NewsWeek. Between 15 percent and 20 percent of couples are living in a sexless marriage. Couples stated that the main reason for sexless marriage. Couples stated the main reason for sexless marriage was lack of energy.

 

There are over 200,000 searches related to sexless marriage each month according to Google. Some of the searches include, Sexless Marriage, My Boyfriend Won’t Kiss Me, My Boyfriend Won’t Touch Me, Sexless Marriage Counseling and Platonic Marriage.

 

A few of the complaints made by women include:

“I have spent most of our marriage having the same discussion about the lack of sex in our relationship. Begging him to get his Testosterone levels tested, to go therapy, anything! Always got an excuse why it wasn’t possible at the moment. ”

  • Meg from r/Deadbedrooms

 

“Men start so loving and sexual and then is like power out! Suckkkkksssssssss!”

  • Sonny from City-Data

 

My Partner Has Low Energy

 

Low Energy may be related to a poor diet lacking in Iron or B12. However, if a man is feeling down in the dumps on a regular basis it’s almost always lack of testosterone. The lack of energy caused by Low Testosterone can increase your amount of fat in your body, exaggerating the problem.

It has been scientifically proven that the more a man ages the less energy he has. This is compounded by stress at school and work. Between all of the responsibilities a man has it can seem impossible to go to the gym or start intimacy.

The reason why I have spent so much time analyzing the effects of Testosterone treatment is that I know it can turn a man’s life around. I suggest adding ginseng or guarana to supplements to get that extra kick of energy.

15 of The Best Testosterone Boosting Ingredients

/ by

How I Wrote This Article:

I did my research by reviewing blogs and ebooks. I then referenced the studies cited. Sometimes, the studies cited disagree with what they say. I then checked the reviews on Amazon to see if the claims were correct and if supplements could provide the benefits that were hyped up.

Considering the fact that as a man gets older his testosterone and sex drive get lower. Thus, ingredients in this list will help increase both Libido and Testosterone.

The Best Testosterone Boosting Ingredients

1.) Anacyclus Pyrethrum – This herb is used as an aphrodisiac in many cultures. For thousands of years it was used as a medicine in the ancient Ayurvedic medicine system. This herb has been shown to increase testosterone in mice. (1)

The Reviews: The most popular supplements that feature Anacylus Pyrethrum are mass gainers, the most popular being AnaBeta Elite. However, if you’re looking for Anacylus Pyrethrum I recommend getting it in capsules.

 

 

2.) Boron – An element that was formed billions of years ago during the Big Bang. This element is found every from nature to food. Boron itself alone does not produce testosterone. However, Boron increases the effects of testosterone producing chemicals.(2)

 

The Reviews:

Because Boron is so effective at increasing testosterone boosting chemicals, most products boost testosterone feature Boron.

 

Recommend

 

3.) Cordyceps – A fungas that comes from moth larvae from the hills of Asia. Increases levels of Testosterone levels in Mice, it’s not confirmed whether or not it increase T levels in mice.

 

Would Not Recommend

 

 

4.) D-Aspartic Acid (DAA) – Marketed as the hottest Testosterone boosting supplement on the market. There are studies to back up this claim. One study found evidence of DAA’s testosterone boosting effects.(3)

 

The Reviews:

This supplement has overwhelmingly positive reviews. There are studies that show that DAA isn’t a magical supplement. However, you wouldn’t get this impression from reading the Amazon reviews. Supplements that contain D-Aspartic Acid as their main ingredient overwhelmingly have positive reviews.

 

Highly Recommend

 

 

 

5.) Holy Basil – Known as “Tulsi” in India. Holy Basil is used to reduce stress and anxiety and is mainly digested in an herbal tea. Considering the fact that stress or rather high cortisol isn’t good for your testosterone levels.(4) Although Holy Basil doesn’t directly relate to a boost in testosterone levels we still recommend putting it in your diet.

 

Recommend

 

 

 

6.) Horny Goat Weed (Icaritin)- Like it’s name implies Horny Goat Weed does in fact make you horny.(5) It’s name came from when Goats were eating through the field they came upon the weed and felt a little frisky thus the layman name was created.  HGW is know to treat ED and can give you involuntary ejaculations. HGW acts as an aphrodisiac in both genders.(6)

 

Recommend

 

 

The Reviews:

Horny Goat Weed has been used for thousands of years because it works. Thus, there are overwhelmingly positive reviews on the product.

 

 

 

 

7.) Maca – A vegetable grown in the mountain of South America, this ingredient acts as an Aphrodisiac. This vegetable is considered to be a superfood packed with healthy nutrients.(7)

 

Recommend

 

 

8.) Mucuna Pruriens (Velvet Bean) – The most important benefit of the Velvet Bean is that it helps improve sperm quality in men undergoing infertility screening.(8) It also significantly increase testosterone in men. (9) We recommend it in capsules.

 

Highly Recommend

 

 

9.) Long Jack (Tongkat Ali) – It’s quite reliable to say that Long Jack will increase your Libido and Sex Drive. As for the Testosterone boosting effects, no credible studies have yet to be provided.

 

 

The Reviews:

One thing that keeps coming up is the terrible taste. Some people say taking the powder by the spoon was, “one of the worst experiences”. However, once you add it to some Orange Juice or Coffee to better the taste you’ll discover the benefits of Long Jack.

 

Highly Recommend

 

 

 

10.) Fenugreek – Fenugreek is one of those ingredients that are in a lot of products from Test X180, TestoBoost and many more. What’s for sure is that Fenugreek is excellent for your blood sugar, being used for patients with Diabetes.(11)

 

 

The Reviews:

Considering the fact that supplements containing Fenugreek tend to be the highest selling products.

 

Recommend

 

 

 

11.) Ginseng (Panax Ginseng) – Used more commonly as an energy booster. A benefit of most Testosterone Boosters is more energy.

 

Recommend

 

 

Foods:

 

12.) King Oyster Mushroom – Commonly consumed in Japan, when cooked this ingredient has an Umami taste. King Oyster Mushrooms tend to lower the cholesterol.(12) There was a study on elk they found a very high increase in testosterone in high dosages. However, it is unclear on the effect of humans.(13)

 

Highly Recommend

 

 

13.) Oysters High in testosterone boosting ingredients such as Magnesium and Zinc. It’s also filled with healthy fats.(14) Oysters can be consumed cooked, powder and raw. We recommend consuming raw oysters, doing so preserves the nutrients.

 

Highly Recommend

 

14.) Basella Alba (Indian Spinach) – Studies have reliably shown that Basella Alba increases sperm count and testosterone in male rats.

 

Recommend

 

15.) Stinging Nettle – It can be concluded that Stinging Nettle increases the effects of other testosterone increasing ingredients. However, there needs to be more studies on how Stinging Nettle relates to Testosterone. Studies have reliably concluded that Stinging Nettle is great for prostate health.  

 

Do Not Recommend

How To Test Testosterone Levels

/ by

There are three types of ways to test Testosterone Levels, blood, urine and saliva. Blood is by far the most accurate of the three tests.

 

Saliva Test:

Just spit in the cup, put it in the mail and a week later you’ll get your test results.

View Saliva Test On Amazon

 

Blood Test and Urine Test:

Find A Testing Center and order a test for $129. If you have ever gotten tested for STD’s or had to have a drug test, these places are highly likely to be able to test your Testosterone as well.

 

What Are The Average Testosterone Levels:

The problem with testing Testosterone levels is that there isn’t one accepted standard.  Different labs use different measurements which creates confusion among patients and doctors.
