Testosterone Support for Men

Testosterone is a hormone that plays a critical duty in men's health. Low or deficient levels are linked to fatigue, weight gain, muscle and bone mass loss, low libido, depression, erectile dysfunction, poor memory, and other symptoms.

Research shows that approximately 40 percent of males 45 and older have low testosterone. There are a number of reasons why men can have low testosterone. I discuss these reasons in detail in my book Healing The Prostate: The Best Holistic Methods To Treat The Prostate And Other Common Male-Related Conditions.

I am often asked if there are any proven supplements that increase blood testosterone levels. There are not many supplements proven to raise men's testosterone levels. However, a special extract of the ayurvedic herb called ashwagandha has been shown in several studies to increase male testosterone levels.

The ashwagandha extract called KSM-66 was shown in a recent study to considerably increase blood testosterone levels and sexual health. The study included fifty participants with low sexual desire who were given KSM-66 at a dose of 600 mg or placebo daily. Results were determined with a survey and blood testosterone levels at the beginning and end of the 8-week study. Compared to the placebo, the KSM-66 demonstrated considerable benefits.

The ashwagandha extract in this study is the same one I use in our Testosterone Wellness supplement (which has 675 mg of KSM-66 per serving). This supplemental strategy provides males the power to boost their sex drive and testosterone levels without prescription testosterone.
