A major contributor to our bodies' health, immune response, and vitality is the hormone testosterone. Optimizing this hormone may help you become healthier and more productive. If it is low, you will suffer metabolic disorder, lack motivation, and reduce sex drive.
From Robb Wolf, "The literature is pretty clear on the idea that low testosterone in men is a bad thing for a variety of health issues including but not limited to cardiovascular disease, prostate health, cognition, immune function and silly stuff like libido and athletic performance."
Check your levels and shoot for optimal levels of this vital hormone:

"If you know/suspect low testosterone levels, it behooves you to look into treatment, but don’t forget to clean up lifestyle issues such as sleep and nutrition. I think as a first-line intervention there are a number of herbal/nutraceutical options that improve all or most aspects of androgen signaling. That seems smart. All of these hormones and intermediates flip various genetic switches on and off, so I think it’s smart to start conservatively and work to get a full picture going. If at some point however it becomes necessary to hit the HRT path, I think that is also smart and appropriate, especially if herbal/nutraceutical support provides a more “natural” profile. This is all very black box stuff and as always I reserve the right to change my mind as additional information is made available, but this is what makes sense to me at this point. To find help in this area I’d seek out a reputable anti-aging doctor, Functional medicine doc or similar individual. Keep good notes and if you are game please share your experiences so we can help refine this message and see what does and does not work."
