Male menopause is a very real condition. Similar to the female menopause, Andropause occurs when a man's reproductive hormones decline to very low levels. For men, this mens decreased production of their primary reproductive hormone, testosterone.
Testosterone begins to decline by an almost imperceptible 1% a year starting in a man’s 30’s. Because of the slow rate of decline, most men don’t notice the effects of this until they’re in their 50’s.
This is different than women, who go through menopause much more rapidly, which is typically over the course of a couple of years.
Andropause is something that seems to sneak up on men - they’ll typically notice a gradual decline in energy, drive, motivation and an increase in weight over the years, until one day they’ve had it and begin seeking some help.
Supporting men through this period needs to include important changes like cleaning up the diet and getting regular exercise, as well as targeted testosterone support. Because after all, the central issue of andropause is a decline in testosterone. Diet and exercise support natural production of it, as do several natural medicines.
Andropause Formula is a unique blend of the most important natural testosterone boosters available. It can help maintain muscle mass, speed, energy and strength, naturally.
NOTE: Andropause formula has been reformulated as Men's Vitality formula.
Uses for Andropause Formula:
Here’s how it works:
Andropause Formula has been clinically shown to increase free testosterone levels which in turn supports muscle mass, libido and sexual function.
L-Arginine (Alpha-ketogluteric Acid) is best known for its ability to stimulate nitric oxide synthesis, which supports dilation of blood vessels. Improved blood flow throughout the body and organs supports fitness and sexual health.
Epimedium (horny goat weed) has several beneficial effects on the male reproductive system including blood vessel dilation and improved testosterone production, which in turn help with erectile dysfunction.
Mucuna Pruriens has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine, and is a rich source of L-Dopa, which is a direct precursor to the brain’s “feel good” chemical dopamine. Dopamine helps support higher levels of testosterone.
Stinging Nettle Root works to bind up sex hormone binding globulins (SHBG) which are notorious for binding to and limiting the availability of free testosterone. The compounds in nettle help to free the binding globulins from steroid hormones like testosterone, allowing them to be more active.
Tribulus Terrestris exerts it's effects on the pituitary gland. In turn, the pituitary is directed to release luteinizing hormone (LH) which then increases production of free testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dihydrotestosterone.
Tongkat Ali has been used traditionally for erectile dysfunction, increased libido and sexual potency. This herb also works to free up available testosterone from sex hormone binding globulin, making more of it available in the body. Additionally, it can reverse the negative effects of estrogen on testosterone production (men do make estrogen from fat cells and excess amounts are unhealthy).
Fenugreek is effective for increasing testosterone, sexual performance and muscle mass. In several studies it increased free testosterone in the blood stream and lean muscle mass.
Yohimbe has the effect of improving impotence.
Ashwagandha is clinically proven to decrease cortisol levels and increase DHEA to help support enhanced energy and performance. Additionally, its been shown to increase the synthesis and activity of NO synthase, the enzyme that produces nitric oxide in the body (which supports healthy blood vessel function).
Panax Ginseng is a popular herb with numerous health benefits. In the realm of male health, it’s used as a general tonic and adaptogen. It supports normal testosterone levels and can improve impotence.
Zinc is one the most abundant trace minerals in the body. It plays an important role in immune and hormone function. Zinc deficiency leads to lower testosterone levels in otherwise healthy men.
Keeping testosterone levels at healthy levels is extremely important for overall male health and goes beyond just sexual health. A clean diet, regular strength exercise, stress management and the testosterone support in Andropause Formula will all do wonders to keep a man’s testosterone levels supported through the years.
