Summary: 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.”
