Today we break the ice and speak out for testosterone.
Just in case you didn’t know it - testosterone is a hormone produced by both genders, which stimulates muscle growth and this is why it is called an anabolic steroid.
How it affects your body? First, it is your muscles. Testosterone is responsible for increasing protein synthesis and as a result, you get increased muscle mass and strength.
It’s a well-known fact that the more muscles you have the easier it is for your body to burn fat. At the same time, high testosterone level helps to block and reduce fat storages and increases beta-adrenergic receptors level which is responsible for fat burning. Double-trouble for your fat storage.
Secondly healthy level of testosterone promotes brain function such as memory, ability to concentrate, faster decision making and cognition. It also improves blood circulation and increases red blood cell production.
Another positive effect of testosterone is a higher collagen production that helps maintain bone flexibility, stimulates faster hair growth and gives skin a healthy look.
And here comes the best part – it spices up your sex life. Testosterone increases not just sex drive but also sperm production and its viability.
It’s important to mention the factors that affect our testosterone level. First of all our hormone levels change throughout the day, whilst our testosterone level is at its highest in the morning and it slowly decreases during the day. Every time you are stressed, tired, lack confidence your body produces a lot of cortisol that lowers testosterone level. While winning a competition, achieving goals, succeeding at something you love or consuming VPLab’s Tribulus Terrestris rises you up and keeps your hormones at a healthy rate. Drinking alcohol, chronic stress, over dieting and constant high-intensity workouts will also negatively affect the production of testosterone.
If you plan on consuming testosterone promoting supplements or have any concerns, VPLab suggests getting your levels tested by a doctor.
