What can be done to address testosterone depletion in a natural, safe way?As men age, they may experience reduced energy, lagging sex drive, poor sleep, loss of confidence, and a foggy brain. The symptoms become especially apparent as men enter andropause, the male version of menopause, when testosterone depletion becomes evident. What can be done in a natural, safe way? Nutrition should be the first and foremost approach. Get your blood tested to see what nutrients you're lacking, where your hormone levels are, and any other blood lab concerns such as cholesterol. Eat grass-fed meats, white button mushrooms and cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, garden cress, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and similar green leaf vegetables), which help block or slow conversion of testosterone to estrogen. Drink at least eight ounces of water first thing in the morning, in order to hydrate your body at a cellular level. Also, limit exposure to endocrine-disrupting materials included in personal care products, household products and certain fabrics and wood products. Listen as Clark Bartram, Performance & Nutrition Industry Expert for Test Max Nutrition and Lead Advisor to the International Sports Sciences Association, joins host Lisa Davis to share information on the connection between nutrition and testosterone. **Get a 15% discount on Seniority Health by going to the checkout page and typing the promo code TESTMAXTIPS in the box on the right that says “DISCOUNT.”

Growing up in Germany with a mother who loved to cook was the basis for Meike Peters' love of food. Meeting a man with ties to the Mediterranean impacted her philosophy.Growing up in Germany with a mother who loved to cook was the basis for Meike Peters' love of food. Meeting a man with ties to the Mediterranean impacted her philosophy. Meike's book, Eat in My Kitchen, contains recipes that mix a Mediterranean influence with classic German cuisine. While many individuals find cooking to be stressful and overwhelming, Meike says being in the kitchen can be a very relaxing and special time. When you make it a part of your everyday routine, you'll find that you miss spending time there. Instead of heading out to eat, appreciate that home dinner parties can bring people closer together, even strangers. Meike shares the example of a recent dinner party where a couple she'd never met before came for lunch at 1:00 p.m. and stayed 12 hours. On rule Meike keeps is this: if you're cooking with a partner or friend, it's usually a good idea for one to be the chef and one to be the sous chef, and then reverse those roles depending on the recipe you're preparing. Meike joins host Lisa Davis to share her history with food and recipes, the top items she keeps in her pantry (a good olive oil, seasonal produce, fennel seeds, cumin, cinnamon, and fresh citrus zest), and one of her favorite recipes that combines Mediterranean flair with German comfort.

As the world evolves, the high cost of the automobile is made clearer... for a number of reasons.Car culture has ensnared much of the world, and it's no wonder. Convenience and comfort (as well as some clever lobbying) have made the car the transportation method of choice for generations. But, as the world evolves, the high cost of the automobile is made clearer... with its dramatic effects on pollution, the way it cuts people off from their communities, and the alarming rate at which people are injured and killed in crashes. Peter Walker argues that the simplest way to tackle many of these problems at once is with one of humankind's most perfect inventions: the bicycle. In How Cycling Can Save the World, Walker takes readers on a tour of cities like Copenhagen and Utrecht, where everyday cycling has taken root, demonstrating cycling’s proven effect on reducing smog and obesity, and improving quality of life and mental health. Interviews with public figures such as Janette Sadik-Khan, who led the charge to create more pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly infrastructure in New York City, provide case studies on how it can be done, and prove that you can make a big change with just a few cycling lanes and a paradigm shift. Meticulously researched and incredibly inspiring, How Cycling Can Save the World delivers on its lofty promise and leads readers to the realization that cycling could not only save the world, but have a lasting and positive impact on their own lives. Listen as Peter joins host Lisa Davis to share more from the book, as well as why this is an incredibly important issue in today's society. Buy on Amazon How Cycling Can Save the World
