If you've turned on the TV lately or you've seen advertisements, even on the side of the highway, the parkway, a lot of these companies are pushing supplementation, or aid in raising someone's testosterone levels. Testosterone is basically the most anabolic hormone in the human body. Both men and women have testosterone. Obviously men have more than women. That's why men are made the way they are, bigger and stronger and so on.
But the key to testosterone boosters and understanding testosterone is that it is age related. If you know a young bodybuilder or someone young looking to put on muscle mass, you need not waste your time with a testosterone booster. If you're under the age of 30, because chances are you're going to be wasting your money.
Testosterone boosters are specifically for those over the age of 30, 35. And every year after that it could be anywhere from one to two percent your testosterone begins to decline. By taking a testosterone booster, and these are herbs, natural nutrients and herbs, that stimulate your pituitary gland to begin to work with the luteinizing hormone to release more testosterone into your bloodstream. They work naturally. Do they work well? It depends on the formulation, but they do have the ability, if used properly, to allow your body to produce more testosterone, which in turn is going to allow your body to synthesis protein faster and make muscle faster, quite simply. Horny Goat Weed is one of them. Tribulus Terrestris is another. Yohimbe is another, and then there's a variety of other ones as well.
And I've had clients over the years who work extremely well on one herbal formulation, while another got absolutely nothing out of it, so you need to try to see what works best for you, but these specific nutrients, if they're in the proper formulation, can definitely, naturally raise your body's testosterone levels.
But you can also raise your body's natural testosterone levels by training properly and training intensely. In other words, all the nutrition in the world, all the protein in the world, the carbohydrates in the world, and even the supplementation in the world isn't going to do a thing if you're not training with intensity.
So keeping your workouts about 45 minutes in duration, an hour max with heavy compound movements, like squats, dead lifts, bench press, bent over barbell, bent over. These are the types of movements that are literally going to cause your body to output a higher amount of testosterone. And even human growth hormone as well. Try taking some of these testosterone boosters as well, in combination with the intense workouts and you'll see some incredible results.
