Hey Guys, Arnold Brod here for Healthy At 60 Plus.
In today’s news update I want to talk about “1 Quick Tip To Raise Your FREE Testosterone [Helps Improve Erectile Dysfunction]” If you have any questions about this video just call or text me at 609-410-4790.
Now let’s see what we have today.
Testosterone is the main sex hormone in males.
In adult men, it controls sex drive, maintains muscle mass, and helps make sperm.
A testosterone levels test measures the levels of testosterone in your blood.
Most of the testosterone in the blood is attached to proteins. Testosterone that is not attached to a protein is called free testosterone.
And it is the Free T that drives the benefits associated with good levels of testosterone. There are two main types of testosterone tests:
Total testosterone, which measures both attached and free testosterone.
Free testosterone, which measures just free testosterone. Free testosterone can give more information about certain medical conditions.
Testosterone levels that are too low (low T) or too high (high T) can cause health problems.
A testosterone levels test may be used to diagnose several conditions, including:
Decreased sex driveErectile
dysfunctionTumors of testicles
For adult men, it’s mostly ordered if there are symptoms of low T levels.
Symptoms of low T levels in men include:
Low sex drive
Difficulty getting an erection
Loss of muscle mass
What happens during a testosterone levels test?
A health care professional will take a blood sample from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. This usually takes less than five minutes.
What do the results mean?
Results mean different things
Low T levels may mean a genetic or chronic disease, or a problem with the pituitary gland. However, the most likely issue is simply the drop in T levels that happens with aging.
Men who are diagnosed with low T levels may benefit from testosterone supplements, as prescribed by their health care provider. Testosterone supplements are not recommended for men with normal T levels.
All testosterone supplementation focuses on increasing total T levels But what is really important is the FREE T level Because as I have said this is where you get the benefits. Increasing total T is needed to have the potential of higher FREE T. However, a problem arises when a sneaky hormone called SHBG comes in. This hormone binds serum testosterone which then keeps your FREE T low. So now the trick is to lower your SHBG number to make more FREE T available. I have read studies that say some diet changes can help lower SHBG. The studies mention increasing high quality carbs. Not just adding cookies and potatoe chips. Additionally, adding vit D was shown to help. On the supplement front, an herb called Tongkat Ali has been shown to be very effective. In fact I took Tongkat Ali for a month and lowered my SHBG numbers back into the normal range. Leave a comment below if you want to know the brand I took.
