In this video, we will discuss the potential risks and downsides of taking testosterone, as it can negatively affect your hormonal responses and even inhibit the body’s natural production of testosterone.

Your body has a complex hormone feedback system that the brain uses to communicate to turn on or off testosterone production. When you change your natural hormone levels with external sources, there can be many side effects that may reduce your quality of life.

The effects of taking testosterone may include:
•Worsening sleep apnea
•Higher risk of heart disease
•Decreased fertility
•Thickening of blood
•Testicular atrophy
•Erectile dysfunction

Before taking any testosterone supplements, it is important to identify the root cause of low testosterone levels. This can include:
• Age
• Insulin resistance
• Low zinc
• Protein deficiency
• Low-fat diet
• Statins
• High soy diet
• Low vitamin A or vitamin D
• Excessive physical activity
• Insomnia
• Liver issues
• Obesity

Fortunately, you can increase testosterone naturally by getting enough rest and a nutritious diet. Here are more ways to boost your testosterone levels:
• Weight training
• More zinc in the diet
• Vitamin D
• More fatty foods with less carbs
• DHEA supplements
• Getting more REM sleep
• Lose weight
• Lowering blood sugar with a keto diet
• Intermittent fasting
• Sufficient protein in the diet
