In the battle against age, most men know they need to exercise and eat right if they want to look (and feel) young. But what most men don’t know is they need to make changes to their diet and lifestyle in order to keep their testosterone levels up. What happens to men when testosterone levels drop?

As men age, their ability to produce testosterone naturally dwindles, and as it dwindles, men can lose more than their sex drive they can lose muscle mass, they can lose their hair, they can lose their ability to urinate freely, and they can even lose their life due to cancer.

Using Hormone Replacement Therapy

One of the most common (and safest) ways to treat lower testosterone levels in men is through Hormone Replacement Therapy, or HRT for short. With HRT, natural testosterone supplement is directly added to the blood stream to help men combat age and live a healthier lifestyle.

  1. Intramuscular injections
  2. Patches (similar in style to the patches used in smoking cessation)
  3. Topical gels or creams

At Allure Medical, we take a different approach to testosterone supplement delivery. Instead of using messy creams, annoying patches, or cumbersome injections, we prescribe a pellet-based treatment for our patients. This quick and easy treatment (you can watch a pellet-insertion video here) is less conventional than the other three methods mentioned, but far more convenient and equally effective at delivering a steady supply of supplemental testosterone to the body.

Getting more testosterone from your diet

The other popular way to lower testosterone levels in men is through dietary change. By eating certain whole foods, the body can actually create more testosterone than it currently produces, helping men look and feel younger than their age. The two things you need more than anything to increase your testosterone are foods that are rich in zinc and vitamin D (D3). These two powerhouse nutrients will supercharge your ability to create testosterone naturally.
