Hey Guys Are You Andropausal?

Posted Jun 15 2010 4:14am

Ladies – if your man looks like the one below, perhaps he’s got some hormone balancing to manage!

Gentleman – perhaps there is an actual physical reason for the energy you seem to have lost.

Andropause is the male version of menopause.

It’s caused by a reduction of the male hormone testosterone.

When I went to look it up on the internet one of the symptoms included falling asleep in front of the TV. Ha!

Pretty classic- don’t you think ?

Often Dr’s will treat additional symptoms separately, however treating one thing like depression – a common andropause symptom with drugs can actually exasperate the sexual dysfunction men also experience with andropause.

From a nutritional consulting perspective I have assisted many woman through menopause – but not a single male has ever inquired about andropause and the natural approach.

We don’t have a section at our nutrition website that accommodates this stage of life for men

It’s like a big mystery.

Andropause symptoms include:

  • Decreased mental quickness and sharpness
  • Decreased energy, strength and endurance
  • Less desire for activity and exercise
  • Decreased muscle and increased body fat
  • Mild to moderate depression and irritability
  • Depression and/or loss of eagerness and enthusiasm for daily life
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Decreased sexual function and/or sensitivity
  • Please note that I am not endorsing the products mentioned on this site, how could I ? I have no experience with them, however I did find this site very informative.

    If I had a chance to work with a male client suffering from Andropause, I’d offer information on high quality nutritional supplements that support brain function, enhance blood circulation,  increases bone density and safe standardized medicinal herbs that are known to promote vitality.

    These would be a few of my nutrient and herbal suggestions:

    BComplex
    Zinc
    Lecithin
    Calcium/Magnesium
    Vitamin E
    Anti-oxidants
    CoQ10
    Gingko Biloba
    Ginseng
    Saw Palmetto
    Soy Protein
