Men Have Hormones, Too!
Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:
With all the constant fuss in the media about women’s hormones, it’s time men get their day because you guys have hormones, too!
In fact, men have some of the same hormones as we women. That’s right, men have estrogen and progesterone in their bodies, only in much smaller amounts than women do.
And then there is testosterone.
Testosterone is an androgen hormone produced by the adrenal cortex, the testes in men, and the ovaries in women. It is considered the primary male hormone. Testosterone stimulates the development of male characteristics such as body hair and muscle growth and is essential in the production of sperm. In women, testosterone plays a role in egg development and ovulation.
Healthy males who have gone through puberty have 20 times the levels of testosterone compared to a healthy female. Low levels of testosterone in men can cause male infertility, while high testosterone levels in women are associated with female infertility.
Testosterone production may diminish with age, causing the loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, decreased cognitive ability, lethargy, osteoporosis, and loss of muscle mass and strength.
Before you give in and try that little blue pill, give a healthy change of diet a try. Good nutrition can be your best friend. Zinc, vitamin D, and a whole plethora of nutrients available in natural foods can help put the spring back in your step.
Testosterone-boosting foods include honey, cabbage, asparagus, garlic, eggs, bananas, watermelon, ginseng, almonds, oysters, oatmeal, citrus fruits, spinach, grapes, wild salmon, avocado, tuna, pomegranate and lean beef.
