Did You Think Testosterone Was Just For Muscle? You Aren’t Alone; But There Are At Least 4 Major Ways testosterone And Health Are Connected
Numbers 3, 4 & 5 are likely to be big shockers for you! Read On To Learn What They Are………….
I thought I would start with the most obvious first, as I touched on at the beginning of this article, when you ask people about how testosterone and health, most people will likely tell you that testosterone is for building muscle, is what makes you aggressive and possibly what gives men an erection.
While the above is true and increased/ retaining muscle mass is one of the main benefits of healthy testosterone production, there are a number of other physical benefits that you get from having healthy testosterone or when you boost testosterone production.
These include the following:
Lower Body Fat
Faster Reaction Times
Improved Blood Circulation
Reduced facial fat
Increased energy levels
Increased basal metabolic rate/ calorie burn at rest
When thinking of how testosterone and health are linked, improved sexual health is probably one of the first things’ that springs to mind. I’m sure most of us have some inclination, as to how healthy testosterone production positively impacts sexual health.
As a quick overview, if you aren’t, please check out the main ways your sexual health benefits if you boost testosterone or have higher T levels.
Improved erection strength
Improved erection frequency
Reduced risk of erectile dysfunction
Emotional is not a type of that most people associate as being impacted by your testosterone production. There have been multiple studies conducted in to how testosterone levels impact areas like how motivation, assertiveness & confidence.
All have shown that lower levels negatively impact these and being able to boost testosterone leads to a positive improvement in these.
Another major area that testosterone and health are linked is depression, admittedly this does cross over with mental health; but is also an emotional state, so wanted it included here.

The reality is that low testosterone levels make you far more prone to the below and having higher and healthy T levels protects you from and reduces your likelihood of developing the serious and in some cases potentially fatal illnesses below.
