Hormones part 2 – 17 ways to your ultimate health

Welcome back to the part 2!

Testosterones are needed not only for men but also for women as well.  Testosterones can drop as much as 40 percent in men between their early 40s and 70s. For 10 – 15 percent of all men those levels drop as early as their 30s. The decreased testosterones will decrease sexual desire and performance as well as drive for successful and meaningful life.

Some studies have shown the powerful effect of  wild green oats and nettle to increase testosterone by releasing the bound testosterone already there and helping to prevent conversion of testosterones to dihydrotestosterone in men. Zinc can be helpful to prevent the conversion as well.
