As a man ages, testosterone begins a long, slow decline. Typically this begins in his 30’s but can become noticeable in his 40’s. While testosterone is most often associated with sexual prowess, it plays a huge role in male mental health - it’s not just for physical health (although testosterone is very important for that, too!)
Men’s Vitality is a cutting edge formula that is designed to strengthen and support the male reproductive system and physical well being. It’s made to increase free testosterone levels so a man can experience all the benefits of a naturally supported testosterone level, like improved muscle mass, sexual function, libido and a more balanced mood.
L-arginine is an amino acid best known for being a precursor to the enzyme nitric oxide synthetase (NOS). NOS converts arginine into nitric oxide (known as endothelial-derived relaxation factor) which causes dilation of the blood vessels. By supporting the effects of NO in this way, blood flow is increased, helping to maintain erections, naturally.
Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed) (20% Icariin) has been shown to block calcium channels and promote vasodilation (expansion of the blood vessels), increase testosterone production and improve erectile dysfunction.
Stinging nettle has been shown to bind up a certain classification of proteins in the blood known as sex hormone binding globulins (SHBG), freeing up testosterone so it can be available throughout the body.
Tribulus terrestris can increase testosterone levels through its influence on the pituitary gland; luteinizing hormone is released which in turn raises levels of free testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dihydrotestosterone. Additionally, Tribulus improved erections better than taking straight testosterone in one study.
Tongkat Ali is oftentimes referred to as the ‘Asian Viagra’ because of its long traditional use in erectile dysfunction, sexual potency and libido-boosting powers. Like nettles, Tongkat can bind up sex hormone binding globulin and free up testosterone in the bloodstream. Lastly, this botanical medicine can inhibit the negative effects of estrogen (men can make too much estrogen)on testosterone production and spermatogenesis.
Ashwagandha is a well known botanical that can lower cortisol and increase the hormone DHEA for an energetic and performance boost. Additionally, it works to improve tissue oxygenation by boosting the production of the enzyme nitric oxide synthetase, leading to improved blood vessel flow and energy production.
Zinc is one of the most abundant trace minerals in the body and used in immune system and reproductive hormone function. Zinc deficiency can worsen serum testosterone levels in men.
Panax ginseng used in Men’s Vitality formula is standardized to contain 80% ginsenosides making it one of the most potent forms available. It’s widely used as a tonic and adaptogenic herb, meaning it helps a person deal with the stressors of life. Ginseng has also been shown in the research to support male reproductive health.
Muira puama is native to the Amazonian rainforests and has been long used as a male sexual tonic as an aphrodisiac. In studies, it’s been shown to increase libido, improve erectile dysfunction even improves memory and learning processes in the brain. As an aside to these effects, it’s also helpful for stress and anxiety and can improve mental and physical fatigue.
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that helps convert L-arginine (previously listed) into nitric oxide. It helps dilate blood vessels; this effect can improve erectile dysfunction and at the same time is effective in lowering blood pressure.
Maca is known as “Peruvian ginseng” and is well known for improving energy and libido.
Saw palmetto has been historically used by the Seminole Indians local to the Florida area to treat urinary tract issues and sexual dysfunction. The herb works to reduce the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which in turn converts testosterone into to the less effective version dihydrotestosterone. This has the effect of increasing testosterone levels and reducing prostatic enlargement.
Men’s Vitality formula is a comprehensive collection of the best botanical medicines and compounds that can help improve testosterone levels and men’s overall health. Many of the ingredients in this formula have numerous clinical studies behind them demonstrating their effectiveness for male sexual and mental health. If you’re a man over 40 who’s feeling burnt out and looking to avoid testosterone replacement, give Men’s Vitality formula a try!
