Middle age men are all interested in testerone boosting as they get older. I first recommend having your blood levels checked and ask your doctor what measures you can take to increase the good testosterone.
Some doctors recommend supplementing with DHEA, which we do carry. However, make sure you don’t overdue it.
Natural boosters like the Solgar’s L-Arginine are very safe, unless you get fever sores (herpes) or canker sores. You can counteract this with extra L-Lysine supplements, which works synergistically with L-Arginine. I usually recommend Tri-amino by Source Natural or NOW, which includes Arginine, Lysine and Ornithine.
If you have a problem with Arginine, even after using extra L-Lysine, try Solaray Citrulline Malate, which is a precursor to Arginine. Citrulline is derived from watermelons and may be very safe.
I DON’T recommend increasing testosterone when you’re under 30 years old. Many young boys are using boosters, without doctor or parental supervision. The problem in many boys is that they become extremely aggresive, suffer from acne on their face/body, and hair loss before their time.
In fact, in dealing with these cases many young people are using the real thing, which they’re getting on the streets. This could lead to DEATH.
I have seen this in my own family. One boy has been suffering from severe anxiety and aggression because he was taking several precursor blends that increased testerone without his mother’s knowledge. He has outbursts and suffers from depression. When he crashes he just wants to sleep. As a child he was on Ritalin for ADD (I hate this drug).
My advise to young men — seek the advise of a Health Practioner/Nutritionist Consultant before taking any supplements. If you’re too young or having any underlying problems you will do harm to yourself.
The aim is to attain good health and strong bodies the healthy way. There’s is nothing wrong in taking protein drinks (without added boosters). Amino acids are naturally occuring in foods.
