Building Healthy Muscle
For men, testosterone levels are directly tied to building healthy muscle. Low testosterone (Low T) levels in the body may reduce muscle to fat, while healthy testosterone levels builds muscle mass. It's proven that low testosterone levels significantly contribute to muscle wasting-or loss of muscle. Likewise, Low T contributes to weakness, fatigue, and countless other unpleasant conditions-from erectile dysfunction and low sex drive to body hair loss, and more.
When it comes to fat, low testosterone levels are often the culprit. That's because low testosterone levels increase fat deposits throughout the body, but especially in the stomach region. What's more, these belly-area fat deposits that result from Low T, in turn produce higher levels of an enzyme called aromatase, which ultimately converts to estrogen. In a flurry effect, the higher levels of estrogen create more pockets of fat that gets distributed to the belly, thighs, and hips. From there, higher levels of body fat eat away at existing testosterone in the body.
Some practical methods to combat fat-causing low testosterone levels and promote healthy muscle growth in men include:
- Weight loss
- Exercise programs that blend resistance training (weightlifting) and aerobic exercise (cardio)
- Proper amounts of sleep
- Good nutrition
