Pexus saidTestosterone levels fall gradually as one gets older and I'm wondering if I'm at the age where I should use a supplement to promote my own hormone production or go for Testosterone replacement, or nothing at all? I'm not looking for bulking or to become Mr Universe, just to hold onto my body as a functioning machine as long as possible.
I'd really like to hear from guys who have used successfully (or not) and what did or didn't work.
Your testosterone starts dropping around 28 or so.
YOU WILL NOT LOOK LIKE MR. UNIVERSE. THINK, FIRST. You do not eat enough calories, you won't be taking enough of the testosterone, and you don't workout in the way needed to promote that level of sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. Use your big head on this one.
Testosterone is good medicine. The best outcomes come when your test is set to 1000, or higher, as has been discovered through years of working with HIV patients. Testosterone has a number of anti-aging effects and will make you have an improved sense of well being, better body fat distribution, bone density, blood pressure, muscle mass, and libido.
You'll want to find a good doctor who is not afraid of endocrinology. A doctor who works with wasting diseases (the sickest of the sick) is a good candidate on being up to speed on the best science. If you get your test tested and you have 200 and the doctor tries to tell you that's fine get a different doctor.
I've had a test script for many years, which we just brought up in dose the other day.
You'll like it and it's something you can do at any time. You'll feel better, you'll look better, you'll improve your health, you'll probably live longer, and your quality of life will be better.
At your age, getting a test script is an easy go, except with the most stubborn of doctors. Most doctors I have had take testosterone.
