WARNING! Things that reduce Testosterone levels
Water, Estrogen and its negative effects
You may have heard the debate about whether Estrogen from The Pill stays in our water systems and cannot be got rid of. There were some experiments on animals that showed their male organs turning to female organs!
Whether you believe all the news and information is up to you. There are a growing number of people that stay away from tap water due to the high levels of Estrogen in it. It is advisable for you to drink mineral water as tap water in developed countries may well reduce Testosterone levels.
Stay away from alcohol
Sorry! You can justify it in your head any way you want such as “red wine is good for me” but the reality is that alcohol promotes Estrogen and reduces testosterone levels. If you want to make sure nothing is killing off your Testosterone levels then don’t drink any alcohol.
Cigarettes and drugs
Stay away from any recreational drugs and especially cigarettes. None of them help you with your quest for higher Testosterone levels. You should aim for a healthy and efficient body and cigarettes and drugs take you totally the other way.
Sedentary lifestyle kills off Testosterone levels
Be active. A sedentary lifestyle tells your body that you don’t want to be part of life and you don’t want any Testosterone to help you get motivated and go out there and “live”. When you tell your body this, are you surprised that your body is not interested in producing any Testosterone?
Exercise and go out there but make sure you don’t over do it.
Pay close attention to your stress levels and reduce them!
Stress kills off Testosterone – Period! If you are stressed, you can kiss Testosterone production goodbye. Try and reduce your stress levels by Yoga and meditation. Relax as much as you can. Take a break. Don’t live in the past or future. Live in the now and don’t let your mind worry about things that are out of your control. Take a good B-Vitamin complex to reduce stress levels.
Lack of sleep kills off Testosterone levels
If you are the sort that gets by with 4 hours sleep, then chances are your testosterone levels are low. Sure, you may get away with it for a while but as you age, if you don’t get sufficient sleep, you will find that your Testosterone levels will start dying off.
