48. Hormone Health for Men: Testosterone
Known best as the "sex drive" hormone in men, testosterone levels in men decrease gradually over time, due to factors such as reduced activity, nutritional deficiency, diabetes, and HGH deficiency. This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as andropause. By age 60, many men have less than half the level of testosterone as they did when they were in their teens.
Low testosterone in men is linked to earlier death. Researchers from the University of California/San Diego (USA) found that older men with low levels of testosterone may die earlier than their age-matched counterparts having normal testosterone levels. In addition, insufficient levels of circulating testosterone were found to contribute to abdominal obesity and metabolic syndrome
