The world is slowly waking up to a crisis of global scale that dwarfs many so-called hot topics of the day. The reproductive health of men has been plummeting for decades. Men’s testosterone levels are now so low based on studies, that many men will soon be completely infertile, should the trend continue. The worst effects of low T include reduced life expectancy, even up to 20 years.

“Testosterone is a hormone produced by the human body. It’s mainly produced in men by the testicles. Testosterone affects a man’s appearance and sexual development. It stimulates sperm production as well as a man’s sex drive. It also helps build muscle and bone mass.”

The problem is close to my heart. Back in 2019, I had my testosterone levels tested. The symptoms are depression, volatile moods, difficulty to get an erection, struggles with gaining muscle mass, many things you would dismiss as normal while busy with everyday life.

In this video, made by Brittany Pettibone, you get a quick overall look into the phenomenon. The situation is serious. Men’s sperm counts have already dropped below 50%, rendering many men practically infertile.

Industrial toxins in our food and water are perhaps the most prominent but also the most obtuse source of the problem. Thankfully, there is enough dietary information to make the necessary adjustments, and you can drop purchasing the products of any companies whose ethics you question. Soy-based products, processed foods, sugary drinks, all pose a problem. Personally, I was prescribed a dietary supplement treatment that has, after 2 years of everyday intake, improved my quality of life tremendously.

Having a low testosterone level is a very serious issue. My doctor showed shocking charts on mortality and disease. You won’t just die sooner, you’ll be sicker too. Your happiness with life will be in the toilet. Little obstacles in life will feel overwhelming when you lack the energy and the mental focus to solve everyday problems. My brain was a foggy, violent mess at the lowest point.

If you have any depression symptoms, you should absolutely book yourself a checkup at a local doctor. Once you have your results, you can adjust your diet to include the right foods, drop the bad foods, and buy yourself a stock of dietary supplements. Personally, I’m eating 9 total pills of selenium, zinc and vitamin D every day. My dosages are way above normal levels, by the way, and I have to get regular checkups to make sure things are moving in the right direction. Too much testosterone is also unhealthy, so talk to a doctor you trust before starting any diets and exercise schedules based on a shoddy self-diagnosis. Physical exercise should be regular too, as obesity not only makes you ugly, but also reduces your self-esteem, and it wrecks your testosterone levels. Get your shit together before you’re done.
