Testosterone is a crucial hormone that plays a significant role in men’s overall health, including muscle development, bone density, mood regulation, and sexual function. As men age, testosterone levels naturally decline, leading to various symptoms such as fatigue, reduced libido, and decreased muscle mass. While testosterone supplementation is an option, there are also natural ways to boost testosterone levels naturally. In this Phoenix Men’s Health blog, we will explore some strategies to boost your testosterone levels naturally.
Before Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Before considering testosterone replacement therapy, it is essential to evaluate your hormone levels and overall health. We will order a comprehensive metabolic panel, which includes liver tests, your baseline T-levels, and FSH/LH levels. These tests help identify any underlying health conditions that may be affecting your testosterone production and let us see if you there are any considerations we need to do before starting your TRT such as alternative methods to boost testosterone naturally. Moreover, the baseline will let our team and you track your testosterone progress.
When it comes to testosterone supplementation, they stimulate the brain to produce more follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). These hormones are responsible for signaling the testes to produce testosterone. Moreover, these supplements directly stimulate the testes to enhance testosterone production. Other ways for increasing testosterone is to decrease the binding of testosterone to testosterone hormone binding globulin (THBG). Other ingredients or supplements that are included in our T-supplements include L-arginine, Tribulus, Tongkat Ali, D-aspartate, Zinc, Ginseng, Ashwagandha, and Vitamin D.
Apart from the ingredients, the most important thing when it comes to supplements is the quality of the supplements. At Phoenix Men’s Health Center, we guarantee you that we provide you with the best quality of supplements and will you monitor you after a month to ensure that you are getting the right therapy.
Other Hormones We Add
In addition to testosterone supplements, we may recommend adding other hormones to support and boost testosterone production. These include:
- DHEA: Known as testosterone’s little brother, DHEA is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland. Supplementing with DHEA can help optimize testosterone levels and promote overall hormonal balance.
- Vitamin D: Often overlooked, vitamin D is not just a vitamin but also a hormone. Many men have insufficient vitamin D levels, which can negatively impact testosterone production. Ensuring adequate vitamin D levels is crucial for optimal testosterone synthesis.
Timing your supplements correctly can maximize their effectiveness. We suggest the following timing guidelines:
- Vitamin D: Take vitamin D in the form of liquid drops in the morning with breakfast. This allows for better absorption and utilization of this important hormone. It’ll also help in your other metabolic functions going on throughout the day.
- Testosterone Supplements: While not necessary, taking testosterone supplements at night can align with your body’s natural testosterone production patterns. Testosterone levels tend to increase during sleep, so taking supplements at night may enhance this natural process.
