While some may be successful, others fail for unfortunate reasons. It’s essential to bear in mind that only materialistic things cannot buy one happiness in their conjugal life. You need that special connection that can only happen when you have a satisfactory sexual relationship. 

Some men fail in this regard as they suffer from low libido, which significantly impacts their sexual drive. According to Ayurveda, the loss of libido in men results from either erectile dysfunction issues such as premature ejaculation or excessive nightfall. But why does this happen? Maybe a few strong reasons will help you answer this critical question.

What Exactly is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone produced by our bodies (yes men and women both have testosterone) that is responsible for most bodily functions including growth and sex drive. However, it’s mainly produced in men’s testicles. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for giving men a more “manly” appearance, and for their sexual development. Testosterone stimulates sperm production and increases a man’s libido or sex drive. It also helps in building muscles and bone mass. 

As men age, their body’s ability to produce testosterone gradually decreases. According to the American Urological Association, 2 out of 10 men over the age of 60 have low testosterone levels. On the other hand, 3 out of 10 men get lower testosterone levels once they reach the age of 70-80. But what is the median T-level, what levels are defined as high and low?

do testosterone boosters work

All men at all times require their testosterone to be at an optimum level. We single out men as testosterone is a sex hormone usually associated with them. Women have small amounts and are not so much affected by changing levels like men.

Proper levels of testosterone lead to:

  • Production of adequate sperm
  • Proper development of muscles and bones
  • Deepening of the voice in puberty and hair growth

With reduced levels of the hormone, you will develop problems like low libido, hair loss, reduced body and muscle mass, low energy levels, extra. It then becomes essential to know why your hormone levels are falling. The problem may’ be caused by stress, anxiety, or depression. In this case, you can see a doctor to address your psychological or lifestyle issues.

On the other hand, the problem might be your testes are not producing enough testosterone. The problem is called hypogonadism, which can be caused by aging factor or genetics. That can be worrying requiring urgent action. That’s when Testosterone boosters become necessary. It’s essential you get the supplements from legal and safe places.

What is Testosterone Support or a “Testo Booster”?

Testosterone was ‘discovered’ by Dr. Charles Brown-Sequard in 1889, but it wasn’t actually named until 1935. The scientists involved, Ruzicka and Butenandt, won a Nobel Prize that same year for making the hormone suitable for commercial use. 7

Women Swooning

Men experience a natural decline in the amount of testosterone produced by our bodies over time. Hypogonadism is the term which indicates that a man is producing either a low amount of or no testosterone. This is obviously significant in a number of ways, since the hormone plays a key role in sexual libido, muscle and bone development, immune system functioning, and red blood cell reproduction, among other things. 3 As you get older you may notice a decline in your sex drive, a decrease in your muscle strength, and a shortage of energy. 11

One possibility for dealing with these symptoms is testosterone therapy. This involves administering testosterone directly, for example, via a gel or powder. 11 However, there’s solid research showing that men over 65 who use testosterone gel have a higher risk of developing heart disease. 1 A 2014 study using rats showed that testosterone therapy can have a negative impact on the prostate. 2 There are other known potential symptoms of this type of supplementation including sleep apnea, acne, breast swelling, and high red blood cell count. 3

At Project Swole we don’t care for steroids, we don’t promote them and we don’t recommend using them. However, we realize some folks are going to use them anyway, and we DO support health. Therefore, every once in a while when we receive reader questions about a steroid stack, we get motivated to publish a post about using steroids as safely as possible, and one of the biggest factors of a safe cycle, is PCT – post cycle therapy. That being said, here are our tips for safely coming off your steroid cycle to maintain the best health possible.

3 Important Reasons Why Plastics Can Kill Your Testosterone

The hidden endocrine disruptors found in plastics

plastic fitness health

2011 was a momentous year for global awareness in terms of the harmful effects of plastic on human health. Following a number of reports from national health and safety agencies, the European Commission outright banned the use of BPA in the manufacture of bottles intended for baby feeding. The evidence for the harmfulness of this substance, particularly in infants, became simply indisputable. Not one year passed and the U.S. also took major steps towards the elimination of BPA. We’ve been using plastic materials for selling and storing our food for quite some time now, which makes the legal action all the more worrisome. It begs the question: just how did we get to a place where we have to ban manufacturers from using toxic substances in their products?

Bisphenol A (or BPA, for short) is a compound widely used in the production of resins and plastic materials. It’s been around ever since the 1950s and, granted, it is a blessing for construction. In terms of chemical importance, BPA is vital to obtaining hard, yet flexible polycarbonate plastic products. In terms of human consumption, however, its effects range from slightly detrimental to outright poisonous, especially in young children and elderly individuals. BPA’s impact on human hormones can yield anything from diabetes, developmental issues, heart disease, genital abnormalities, obesity and, unsurprisingly, infertility.

Another Reason To Hit The Gym: Make Your Natural Pheromones More Attractive

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

popeyeWe all know that going to the gym not only makes you feel better, it makes you look better too. Even if you don’t have a chiseled 6-pack, massive guns, or lady-swooning glutes being a gym goer can give you a more shapely body, higher energy and mood levels, and help you be enjoy life to the fullest.

But there’s another aspect of being fit and healthy that’s not discussed often:

The scent of your natural pheromones (or your natural body odor), can actually become more attractive to the opposite sex.

If you don’t know what they are, or you imagine sleazy internet ads promising you they’re the secret to attracting gorgeous women… then you’ll probably roll your eyes. But on a scientific level, it actually makes sense.

What are Pheromones?

First of all, the word “pheromone” actually comes from the word “pherein” – which means “to carry”.

The second part, “mones” is from the word hormon(e).

As you already know by now, hormones (e.g. testosterone), are responsible for pretty much all the important functions of the human body… from regulating sleep, our testosterone balance, and even our moods.

Of particular interest is testosterone, which is an androgen, and typically what pheromones are derived from.

The most interesting part about all this, is that pheromones are actually derivatives of testosterone. And because they are released in sweat, there are steps you can take to actually make your pheromones all the more “attractive” – especially to women. (more…)
