Supplements For Low Testosterone In Men – What Are They?

FYI: Supplements, NOT steroids!

Dealing with inadequate T levels is arguably one of the worst things for any men out there. Thankfully though, we now have supplements for low testosterone in men that can you to reclaim your masculinity.

These dietary supplements are designed to naturally stimulate your body’s own testosterone production. They rely only on natural ingredients e.g. herbs and plants and you don’t need a prescription from a doctor for them – unlike TRT (testosterone replacement therapy).

That means that we won’t be talking about any steroids, testosterone gels or T patches in today’s post, so don’t go anywhere!

Dietary Supplements That Boost Testosterone Levels 101

Supplements for low testosterone in men, pills, tablets and capsules

Notice how I used the word supplements and NOT anabolic steroids? Do you differentiate between the two? Without being overly sarcastic, think of supplements as fresh juice, and steroids as juice from concentrate.

Both are designed to deliver certain benefits but through very different methods. Anabolic steroids could be potentially hazardous to your health, while supplements are made of herbs, plants and other natural compounds.

Supplements are OTC (over the counter) products, while steroids are prescription drugs.

OTC means that you can buy testosterone boosters freely since they fall under the ‘supplements’ category. This is obviously the exact opposite of medications since they require you to get a doctor to prescribe them for you – hello TRT!

Does that make them obsolete and useless? From my standpoint – not at all. You should value your health, and unfortunately introducing a synthetic version of your primary androgen (big T) has the potential to cause you harm. Here, let me throw in some examples of how bad TRT or steroids can hurt you:

  • They could cause heart attacks and strokes
  • They could cause sleep apnea
  • They could cause gynecomastia
  • They WILL wreck your endocrine system

The last one is going to happen without a doubt! Your nuts will STOP producing testosterone, because you’re receiving it from an external source, around 10x your natural amount. Still, does that mean you’ll 100% die from a heart attack or a stroke when injecting the juice (that cool slang for steroids) into your butt? Only the Lord knows bro!

What I DO know is that I’d prefer to make adjustments to my lifestyle and with the help of natural products, reach my hormonal goals!

Do You Have Low Testosterone Though?

supplements for low testosterone in men, question mark

*Pleases note that wearing pink and listening to One Direction or Nursery Rhymes doesn’t really help with your testosterone production!*

Even if you assume that your manhood is on the lower end of the spectrum and you want a natural alternative to TRT (testosterone replacement therapy)… you still need to figure out if you really have insufficient amounts of T in your body.

Firstly, there are symptoms that you could look for when you have been doubting your virility. They are explained in detail in my low T and symptoms post, but for the sake of convenience, here are the top ones to watch out for:

  • Losing muscle mass and strength – any gym rat’s worst nightmare
  • ED – erectile dysfunction
  • Carrying excessive amounts of fat
  • Reduced bone mass and density
  • Gyno – gynecomastia a.k.a. man boobs

Some NASTY symptoms, eh? Fear not, because before jumping to conclusions, it’ll be wise to do a blood test (blood tests are the most accurate) to see how much T you have exactly. I’ve written a post entirely focused on normal testosterone levels, with some great graphs which you could use for reference.

After doing that, you’ll know whether or not you’ll have to enhance your masculinity. Obviously, the main thing that causes low T is hypogonadism –  when your testicles’ ability to produce testosterone gets impeded.

Can You Battle Low T Only With Supplements?

You can, depending on how severe your condition is. This is where you doctor steps in. While TRT can be effective and it will most likely bring your levels back to normal, that comes at a certain cost – your health!

That’s why you’d want to look into alternative and more natural solutions e.g. supplements. In fact, when you have decreased T levels, quality testosterone boosting should be able to give you a boost.

Utilizing modern T boosting supplements for dealing with low testosterone can potentially be an efficient choice

Same goes for older gents, who in general report great results in terms of more energy, libido, muscle tone etc.

The increase in natural T production associated with these products correlates with things like your current testosterone levels. In a nutshell – if you have less masculinity, chances are that the T booster will be your new best friend!

Are All Testosterone Boosters Made Equal?

 

Nope. In fact, they can be quite different in terms of quality. To put in layman’s terms, here’s a counterquestion: Are all cars the same in terms of performance, luxury, practicality etc.?

Sure, while most T boosters share similar formulas, there’s the human factor that sets them apart. And that’s your personal experience with a particular product. An awful LOT of guys on the internet like to promote products that they’ve never tried themselves. Even worse, they are writing bloody REVIEWS for them… talk about hypocrisy.

Speaking of reviews, you can find my fair share of reviews on the ‘Reviews‘ page. This is where I give you my personal and honest opinion about a particular product. Without any fluff or promotional stuff (that rhymes lol).

Now, I did my best to highlight the most used compounds in testosterone enhancing supplements, which you can find here. Like I told you guys already, most of the ingredients mentioned in my article are what most of these supplements consist of. But once again, quantity and quality come into play!

What T Boosters Should You Go For Then?

The ones that make your missus happy, your wallet heavy and your androgens stimulated. In all seriousness though – always buy testosterone boosters with a proven track record e.g. positive reviews, quality ingredients etc.

Well, it’s the same with testosterone boosting supplements. You get what you pay for, generally speaking. Going for the cheapest option available will bring you… guess what? The cheapest results available!

That’s not to say that you should sell your house in order to acquire a decent T booster, but money well spent will ensure you’ll have better chances of dealing with low T naturally. Without further ado, let’s dive in and inspect the elements that make a booster good:

  • Transparent label – not hiding behind ‘modern‘ proprietary blends
  • Efficient ingredient profile
  • No banned substances or anything illegal inside
  • Adequate dosing
  • Each bottle lasts at least one month

Know what though? This is just an advice – you are completely free to go out and buy average, below average or even total-garbage-boosters if you want to prove a point. Who knows, they could’ve been designed just for you and they might actually exceed your expectations!

Conclusion

Can you be the knight in shining armor that does all the fighting for glorious testosterone levels, by yourself? Without introducing foreign substances in the form of lab-made hormones to your system? That’s definitely possible.

Health-related concerns will always haunt you if you decide to dabble in TRT (testosterone replacement therapy). Especially after reading a good part of my articles (thank me beforehand), and my “praise” for injections, syringes and anything of the sort.

Can I promise you that utilizing testosterone enhancing supplements will redeem your masculinity and bring back your normal testosterone levels? Not by ANY stretch of the imagination! Only the Lord knows if it will be enough for your particular situation.

What’s certain is that there ARE effective testosterone boosters, like my current favorite TestoGen (don’t forget to check my very own TestoGen review as well). You can only gain an advantage from taking such supplements and I’d say it’s totally worth preserving your health by avoiding injections as much as possible.

  1. Hey Simon, Cool website man very informative and good suggestions about things to take and what helps.

    I use these natural supplements called metagenics, and these days people love all natural stuff! So maybe you could add some of those products to your page for people who are looking for a natural thing.

    cheers, Dillon.

    • Welcome, Dillon!

      Merci beaucoup for the kind words mister – it means a lot to me!

      So I did take a look at this supplement brand called Metagenics and yeah, they do seem cool. Non-GMO products with statements for quality and purity – they’re onto something. Might definitely consider trying something from their arsenal in the future!

      Cheers and God bless,

    • Hello there Susan!

      Glad you liked it, high five.

      ZMA is the best according to who? There are millions if not trillions of studies out there, would appreciate more insight on this one, really! I’m not making fun of the awesome combination of Zinc, Magnesium and B6, by any means.

      There’s virtually no doubt that ZMA is an amazing and super effective compound, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best for boosting your testosterone if that’s what you meant. It can definitely HELP, but proper T boosting supplements are better in general.

      Cheers and God bless,

  2. I recently tried a testosterone supplement and was disappointed. Definitely, nothing to write home about.But after reading the info you had on testogen I think I might give it another try.
    Also, I want to thank you for the diet and exercise info you had.My diet among other things does include quite a bit of egg and olive oil.
    I also agree with you on the importance of exercise.I have been very physical my entire 64 years. Sports and heavy construction, and exercise. I am sure that is the reason I don’t have man boobs. Lol. Sorry I couldn’t resist. For some anal reason, I always laugh when I see that phrase. But I am sure I wouldn’t think it was if I had that problem.
    Very good job on giving lots of info on the problem of low testosterone. Thank you.

    • Welcome David!

      Kudos for being active and staying fit at 64! So many younger folks are sitting on their butts all day long, not doing anything physical – it’s a shame.

      And yeah, man boobs are funny but I’d imagine it won’t be a fun experience to have them. That’s something that I’m trying to help folks with.

      Cheers and God bless,

  3. I like what you have to say and you make a lot of very good factual points. I have been out of the gym for almost 4 years and have never been less confident, depressed or solitary than now. My reason for my decline was a career, stable relationship and a sense of security which has all been lost. I believe I have always been the best man I can be by working out and living right but I lack the motivation. I have shoulder injuries, two torn biceps which hinder my bodybuilding goals. And there’s the excess body fat which you know blocks the metabolizing of testosterone. And then there’s my age. I’m 41 and no matter what you say, there’s no way I can produce the same testosterone as when I was 23 because production declines with age. What info can you give me to motivate my aspirations of getting my life back with testosterone the right way? Thank you for the good read, I look forward to your response.

    Respectfully,

    Karl

    • Welcome, Karl!

      It’s unfortunate indeed, but we all age and that’s only a normal physiological process. Sorry to hear about the shoulder injury holding you back and also the unpleasant events that took place in your personal life. I’ll pray to the Lord things get better for you man!

      In terms of giving you a push or fresh motivation, I’ll keep it tight and composed. Start from adjusting your lifestyle – nutrition, sleep, eliminating bad habits etc. Build on from there and remember – being 41 does NOT mean you have to live with low T for the rest of your life. In fact, be an exception to the rule, make yourself proud and be a good role model for other folks.

      There’s lots of stuff to read here on T.N. so roll up your sleeves and get enlightened.

      All the best buddy, cheers!

      God bless,
