Do you feel like you’re “off your game” and just don’t have the energy you used to have?

Is your body not as trim as it used to be... and you can’t seem to shake those extra pounds?

Have you lost some of your “get up and go” and feel less motivated to work out?

Maybe you’ve even lost some of your muscle tone as well?

These could all be symptoms of low testosterone and/or andropause.

This decline in hormone production (called andropause) is a gradual process (starting around the age of 30) and occurs over several decades. In fact, testosterone levels drop by about 1% per year or 10% per decade!

So if you’re noticing a general decline, this can be expected. But it still deserves medical attention as abnormally low testosterone levels can increase your risk for heart attack, diabetes, low bone density, high cholesterol, and even a higher risk for prostate cancer.

Unfortunately, many men blow off their symptoms thinking it's just a matter of "getting older" and that there's "nothing you can do" – so while andropause is unavoidable, you don't have to let hormone imbalances call the shots!
