Burn fat faster
Build muscle
Increased energy = increased performance
Increased sex drive

You can buy T boosters otc. A bodybuilding supplement. Whether they work? I don't know.

From what I know they burn fat faster and build muscle faster because they change the balance from T production and Estrogen production to a higher production of T. All humans produce estogren--even males (explains some attitudes around here). Higher T production decreases E production. Whereas higher E production decreases T production.

Changes in sexual function. This may include reduced sexual desire, fewer spontaneous erections - such as during sleep - and infertility.

Changes in sleep patterns. Sometimes low testosterone causes insomnia or other sleep disturbances.

Physical changes. Various physical changes are possible, including increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density. Swollen or tender breasts (gynecomastia) and hair loss are possible. You may experience hot flashes and have less energy than you used to.

Emotional changes. Low testosterone may contribute to a decrease in motivation or self-confidence. You may feel sad or depressed, or have trouble concentrating or remembering things.

I've taken them back when I was playing ball. Didn't do much by themselves other than make you want to fap all day.

Get tested, discuss with your doctor and go from there.


The natural test boosters don't really work.

Blood test. I'm guessing it'd be easier to get pain killers from a doctor than it would to get testosterone. Haven't had to ask for either one so I have no clue.

Tell your doctor you have low T. I think it's pretty common with middle aged men.

Are the ones you can get at GNC worth it? I've been thinking about buying them next time I go in.

i am not middle aged. But I am getting close. I am always been lazy, my libido is top notch. I am not atletic anymore. So I figured if it can help that would be great.
