Testosterone boosters: Zinc

Zinc – a master element to optimize testosterone in men.

Zinc (Zn) is the most abundant trace metal in the human after iron. It cannot be deposited in the body, the extra Zn is excreted together with sweat, and other discharges. Therefore, regular dietary intake of the mineral is required. The human body contains 2–4 grams of Zn and most of it (nearly 90%) is found in muscles and bones with the highest concentrations in the prostate and semen. Zn is the key element in the male reproduction system determining prostate gland function and growth of reproductive organs. Zinc is a component of over 300 enzymes and 1000 transcription factors and involved in almost all physiological functions of our body: growth, immune response, reproduction, DNA synthesis, expression of genes, and cell division. Here we will focus on how Zn stimulates testosterone production and thereby defines the reproductive health in men.

How to increase testosterone naturally? Testosterone boosters.

T-boosters: can we trust the sellers’ claims and product reviews?

Although testosterone therapy may benefit men with hypogonadism, erectile dysfunction caused by low hormones, and many other health conditions, issues regarding its potential risks and side effects such as prostate cancer, cardiovascular diseases are still of great concern and remain controversial. Almost 35% of hypogonadal men refuse from testosterone therapy due to the fear of prostate cancer risk (Gooren LJ et al. 2007). And here, alternative medicinal herbs with a long history of traditional use turned out to be in wide demand. These remedies, unlike pure hormones, seem to exert their effect in a much more mild and tolerable mode.

How to increase testosterone naturally? Use your mind and good sleep!

Introduction.

A reassuringly low rate of adverse outcomes reported after testosterone therapy following radical prostate treatments led to the recent re-examination and clarification of our understanding of the biology of androgens and prostate cancer and as a result to increased recognition of the benefits of testosterone.

The content of testosterone in the blood of a healthy young man is approximately 630 ng/dl the normal rates ranging from 264 to 916 ng/dl. We know that testosterone levels drop at a rate of 1-2% per year with age. Therefore, it is not surprising that by the age of 50 we are already experiencing some negative symptoms listed below. These symptoms are especially severe in people who have concomitant diseases such as diabetes, blood pressure issues, cardiovascular disease, or prostate conditions. But unlike women, who have an entire arsenal of remedies for menopause, there are no accepted recommendations for men that would smooth out the negative consequences of a drop in testosterone levels. Therefore, you can often hear: “We are men – we do not talk about this”, or “I do not use any nasty things” or something like that. But ignorance is not the best helper here. The symptoms are usually getting worse. With no exaggerations, testosterone is a life-changing hormone, making a male masculine and giving his life a sense of power. Let’s explore what natural remedies men have at their disposal to keep their confidence and shine in the eyes for as long as possible.

Testosterone and prostate health

Introduction

For over 75 years, it has been accepted that higher serum testosterone increases the risk of developing both new and rapid growth of latent prostate cancer. How did it happen that testosterone, being a hormone controlling the development of the prostate early in life, becomes a destruction and degeneration factor of the prostate in old age? What is the price of risk of testosterone therapy and does it prove the expected benefits? There is considerable evidence that androgen deprivation therapy noticeably depresses the development of prostate cancer in humans and prostate cell line experimental systems. However, there is no clear evidence that an increase in endogenous testosterone levels contributes to the development of prostate cancer in men.
Let’s study the issue carefully analyzing the pros and cons of available evidence-based data.

Constipation

How constipation affects your prostate?

Constipation is one of the most harmful conditions for your health. As I mentioned earlier, the prostate is located in the vicinity to the rectum, and with age, it may enlarge several times in size, even pressing into the wall of the rectum. When your bowel works correctly, the feces are eliminated in time, and the level of exogenous and endogenous toxins in the feces is low, the wall of the rectum performs its barrier function perfectly; even if the content of the bowel had a high level of toxins, their exposure time to the wall of the colon is short.

Vitamin K2 prevents prostate cancer, cardiovascular disease, and bone weakness

Introduction.

It has long been noticed geographical or national differences in prostate cancer susceptibility. These variations were mostly attributed to the specificity of the diet and culinary preferences of different cultures. And this, in turn, suggests that some foods or ingredients of food may have chemoprotective properties against cancer cells. Lycopene, selenium, vitamins C, D, E, and K, green tea, silymarin, pomegranate, and Resveratrol are well known dietary components that attracted considerable attention of scientists in terms of their anticancer potential. Here I’ll focus on vitamin K2 and its varieties as the natural food components capable of stopping the development of the prostate cancer or slowing down its progression.
