3 Tips to Boost Your Testosterone Levels Naturally
At Titan T-Center & Weight Loss, our main focus has and always will be helping our patients improve their quality of life and lead healthier lives. While our low T clinics specialize in offering safe and effective Testosterone Replacement Therapy, we also encourage our patients to make other lifestyle changes to optimize their hormone therapy. Here are our three easy tips to help you boost your testosterone levels naturally:
Improve Your Sleeping Habits.
Few things can wreck your body’s natural rhythm than sleep deprivation. A lack of sleep can seriously impact a variety of hormones, especially testosterone. Setting up a regular sleeping pattern (aiming for at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep every night at around the same time) is key. When you give your body proper rest, you will notice a huge boost in mood, energy, and performance in addition to helping keep your testosterone levels normal.
Maintain a Healthy Weight.
Men who are overweight or obese are much more likely to have decreased testosterone. While the body needs both testosterone and estrogen, this hormone balance is thrown off when the body has excess fat. This is because fat cells contain high levels of an enzyme called aromatase which converts testosterone into estradiol, a form of estrogen. Losing excess weight can go a long way toward bringing testosterone levels back in line. Additionally, if you are underweight, getting back to a recommended BMI can help to optimize your hormone levels.
We can’t stress this one enough. Your body adapts to how you use it, and the same principle holds true for your hormones. Spending too much time lying on the couch sends a message to your body that you’re less active and need less testosterone. In response, your body will decrease your levels creating an imbalance. Make a habit of exercising regularly. Getting a good mix of cardio and strength training is ideal for every aspect of your health.
Optimize Your Testosterone with Titan
While these tips can help improve your hormone levels, for some men, it may not be enough. We recommend these tips specifically because they often work best in conjunction with Low T Therapy. Testosterone Replacement Therapy helps to supplement your testosterone levels, which in turn will help you sleep better, lose weight more easily, and re-gain the energy and motivation you need to exercise more.
