Are you experiencing low testosterone levels? Is it making you feel less than a man? Here are 10 reasons why you need to increase testosterone levels.

For one reason or another, men’s testosterone levels may decrease. Sometimes this decrease is a product of age, which means that it’s completely normal. Other times, though, the decrease in testosterone is completely preventable.

In the case of preventable decreases, men should absolutely look for ways to increase testosterone. Healthy testosterone levels are, after all, essential for men who want to lead healthy lives.

Don’t think low testosterone levels are that big of a deal? Don’t be so sure of yourself.

1. You Don’t Want Puny Muscles…

We’re not suggesting that men must have bulging muscles. That’s not exactly attainable for all men.

Still, whatever muscle mass you do have is determined by your testosterone levels to some extent. This means that when those levels drop, you could lose some of your muscle mass.

If you’re not fitness-oriented, this might not sound so bad to you. We assure you, however, that muscle degradation isn’t fun to deal with when you find that you actually need your full strength.

2. Or A Large Gut

Some of you might already have a large gut. That said, our guess is that few of you want an even larger gut.

Especially since excess belly fat has been linked to heart conditions and other ailments.

Our assumption is that you want a healthy heart, and if you don’t want a healthy heart, you definitely don’t want an unhealthy one. If our assumption is correct, then we definitely recommend that you seek out treatment to increase testosterone.

3. Your Memory Might Take a Hit

Did you forget to take out the trash again? Is your significant other bent out of shape over your forgetfulness?

Well, as it turns out, you might have a good excuse for forgetting to help out around the house.

While testosterone itself doesn’t necessary regulate memory, it helps preserve tissue. This becomes more important as you age and your brain becomes to deteriorate.

Of course, you’re more than welcome to accept your newfound forgetfulness to get out doing your household chores. We doubt it would be worth it, but then again, we don’t know just how many responsibilities you have around your house.

4. Sleeping May Become Difficult

For some people, sleeping isn’t the most interesting thing that they do in their beds. For others, however, sleep really is better than sex.

Or, at the very least, it’s better when they’re too tired to think of doing anything else.

In all seriousness, though, sleep is important. When we don’t get enough of it, we slowly fall pieces, and in more than one way.

Our brains, for instance, don’t function as well. Our bodies also take a hit. Our bodies restore themselves while we sleep, something they can’t do if we always skimp on sleep.

Hopefully, you value your brain and your physical health enough to know that the decision to increase testosterone levels is a no-brainer.

5. Size Matters

Some studies have shown that size doesn’t matter quite as much as some people think it does. Even so, we doubt that anyone here would line up to donate a couple of inches to his neighbor.

All jokes aside, low testosterone levels can negatively affect the size (length AND girth) of a man’s penis. We’re not talking inches and inches, but we are talking enough to make a man want the problem to go away.

The size of a man’s balls can also decrease as a result of low testosterone levels. They might also lose firmness and become squishier.

6. Testosterone Is Linked To Your Sex Drive

This one might be pretty obvious, so many of you probably already know what we’re about to say. But, alas, we have to say it anyway.

Simply put, if you don’t have enough testosterone, your sex drive will suffer. You can also become one of many unfortunate victims of erectile dysfunction.

If that doesn’t make you want to increase testosterone levels, we don’t know what will.

7. You Might Be Moody All The Time

Just as a woman might get moody during her cycle, you can get moody if your testosterone levels are low. So how moody are we talking?

According to some sources, you could get so moody that you actually become depressed. Needless to say, depression is no fun, so you’ll want to avoid the whole ordeal if you can by increasing your testosterone levels.

8. You Could Start Losing Your Hair

If you’ve been able to avoid male pattern baldness thus far, we’d like to congratulate you. We’d also, however, like to caution you against taking your testosterone for granted.

Because if your levels ever drop, you could start losing your hair. And we’re not just talking about the hair on your head.

Men with low testosterone levels might find that the hair all over their bodies is thinning. We don’t have to tell you that this could be a huge blow to a man’s self-confidence.

9. Low Testosterone Is Bad for Your Bones

No one knows what the future holds, but we’re all aware of what it could hold.

And, not to be funny, conditions such as osteoporosis happen to be among the things the future could hold.

You could be young and spry right now, so the future might seem inconsequential at the moment. The fact is, though, that you have to get old, so you have to take care of your bones today. You’re not getting a new set of bones.

This means that you should watch your testosterone levels to protect your bones. You want them to be as strong as they can be for as long as they can be.

10. Your Job Might Be on the Line

Call us dramatic, but this technically true. Given everything that we’ve said here, the idea of losing your job over your testosterone levels isn’t implausible.

Just trying coming to the office with your bad mood in tow for a month and two. You could also try going to your factory job whilst your muscle mass decreases as a result of your low testosterone. We just know that you’ll have a jolly good time.
