How 60+ year old men can enhance testosterone fast?
That’s why you are here and I am going to give you SAFE and EFFICIENT answers to help boost your T levels ASAP.
Unfortunately, after your thirties, testosterone levels drop consistently.
At 60, you should have 30% less testosterone than at your peak T age.
The drop isn’t without side effects. For instance, there’s a significant decrease in sperm count, sex drive, muscle mass, bone density and red blood cell count (essential to transport oxygen to organs).
However, beside the very controversial and risky testosterone replacement therapy, there are many natural options to help you boost T levels.
So, how 60+ year old men can enhance testosterone fast?
How 60+ year old men can enhance testosterone fast
Lose the Extra Weight
Research has shown that men who carry extra weight usually have much lower levels of testosterone. This may be due to an increase of female hormones.
In fact, all men have some of them but too much female hormones will lower testosterone levels and increase the risk of hypogonadism. Which is the male equivalent of menopause and can cause the following symptoms: man boobs, low libido & mood, night sweats, irritability, etc.
If you have excess weight, start by drastically reducing the number of carbs you are eating (pasta, bread, rice, sugar and anything with sugar or flour).
Then, make sure to compensate by eating plenty of leafy greens (great to boost T levels), enough quality proteins and healthy fats. Check out the low carb or ketogenic diet to find exhaustive information.
Pump up Some Iron
Exercise is one of the most effective ways to get back in shape AND boost testosterone levels.
Research has found that men who exercised regularly had higher levels of T. And in the case of 60+ year old men, it’s been shown that exercise is indeed very efficient to boost testosterone levels. (1)
However, not all exercises are as efficient to boost the male hormone!
For example, resistance training, such as weight lifting, as been shown to be the best testosterone booster exercise there is. It will help you on the long term and even, straight away by boosting free levels of testosterone (making your current T more available to use).
Additionally, high-intensity interval training (aka HIIT) is great to boost T and improve cardiovascular health.
The combination of strength training and HIIT is ideal to get back in shape, maintain fitness, boost T levels, increase muscle and bone mass, and overall, improving your health by a tenfold!
Take Supplements Wisely
There are so many supplements available that it is quite hard to figure out what’s what and what is actually going to help.
Instead of ruining yourself, start with the basics.
For instance, most of the occidental population (in the Northern hemisphere) is deficient in vitamin D. However, vitamin D is essential for optimal levels of testosterone.
By supplementing daily with vitamin D3 (the best one for your body), you will naturally increase T levels.
A study has shown that 3000 IU of vitamin D3 for a year increased testosterone levels by 25%! (2)
Similarly, zinc deficiency can also cause health issues and lower T levels.
To make sure, you are doing the right thing, make sure your diet is as varied as can be. So, eat seasonal vegetables and fruits, and quality proteins (organic and grass-fed).
If you suspect severe deficiencies or just want to know, ask your GP if he could do a full blood test to figure out what could be improved.
How 60+ year old men can enhance testosterone – Conclusion
There’s more things that can also improve your testosterone levels. Most healthy things actually have that potential.
Nevertheless, let’s focus on the most important ones.
For example, stress management can do wonders to enhance T levels quickly. When we are stressed, we produce a hormone called cortisol. High levels of cortisol are absolutely terrible for testosterone – they reduce it drastically and fast!
So, make sure to get enough quality sleep, try soothing activities if needed (meditation, yoga, breathing techniques, etc.) and make sure your diet is wholesome.
Moreover, excessive alcohol consumption can have a very detrimental impact on your T levels. Accordingly, keep your drinking at reasonable levels and avoid it altogether, if you don’t really feel like drinking.
Just do you, but a healthier you. 😉
By following and maintaining these changes, you will see a significant improvement in all areas of your health, including, of course, your testosterone levels!
