Testosterone is the key sex hormone in males. It declines with increasing age, so the natural boosters and herbs contained in Motent can be taken to increase and maintain testosterone levels in the body.

Testosterone is an androgen produced by the “Leydig cells” of testicles in men. Testosterone hormone is also produced by the adrenal cortex in both men and women. This natural key sex hormone in males is also present in females in small amounts.

Testosterone accomplishes several functions in the male body such as male fertility, healthy sperm production, the growth of secondary sexual characteristics, and normal libido. It also has a role in many metabolic activities. The body’s natural amount of testosterone hormone starts declining as men age. Normal levels of testosterone are important in the male body for natural well-being and health. With increasing age, the decline in the amount of testosterone hampers fertility and other metabolic functions of the male body. Healthcare experts may even recommend testosterone replacement therapy for some people, but this needs regular monitoring and may carry a risk of side effects.

To naturally bring testosterone hormone to normal levels in the body, one can take natural boosters to avoid any side effects and risks of the more extreme hormone replacement therapy.

  • Zinc: Zinc plays an important role in the maintenance of normal serum testosterone hormone levels in the male body. A study by Prasad AS and others concluded that supplementation of zinc in men who were marginally deficient in zinc resulted in an increase in serum testosterone levels. Increase natural food items that provide zinc in your diet such as sesame and pumpkin seeds, garlic, chickpeas, wheat germ, cashews, mushrooms, chicken, egg yolk, spinach, yoghurt etc. Dr. Michael Sharon states in his book “Complete Nutrition” that smoking, coffee, and alcohol deplete zinc in the body and has also associated it with lower prostate health. Therefore, reducing alcohol, smoking, and coffee intake may help to naturally increase zinc levels in the body.
  • Sleep: Sleep deprivation also puts a negative effect on testosterone hormone levels in the body. Get enough sleep to naturally maintain a normal testosterone hormone level in the body. In a study, Rachel Lepoult, Ph.D., and Eve Van Cauter, Ph.D., observed that daytime testosterone levels decreased by 10% to 15% in a small sample of healthy men who underwent 5 hours of sleep restriction per night for a week. Take measures to eliminate stress from life to control sleeping difficulties.
  • Diet restriction: Not taking enough nutrients required by the body can lower testosterone in men. It is essential to take a balanced proper diet to maintain normal testosterone hormone levels in the body. A study By Rossow LM and others on a bodybuilder during 6 months before and after competition showed a decline in testosterone during preparation, which increased to normal baseline level after the competition.
  • Obesity: A study by Mogri M showed that the concentration of testosterone in young obese pubertal and post-pubertal males was lower (40% t0 50%) than those with normal BMI. Thus, obesity is associated with low levels of testosterone hormone in the body. Shed the extra weight to keep your testosterone hormone within normal limits. Modify your lifestyle and diet to lose fat and support ideal body weight.
  • Natural herbs: : Some natural herbs are known to maintain normal testosterone levels in the body and help as a performance booster. These include:
    • Gokhru: In Ayurveda, it is used to increase fertility, sperm count, and stamina in males and females for supporting conception. It is believed to increase testosterone levels in the body.

    • Safed Muesli: It is used to naturally correct impotency, infertility in men, and as a booster of stamina. It is described as “vrishya” in Ayurveda (Ra. Ni.)
