Does Working Out Affect Testosterone Levels?

Does Working Out Affect Testosterone Levels?

Amazing Health Discoveries, Men's Health
How Working Out Affects Testosterone Levels If you’re a man with low testosterone, exercise may help, experts say. Doctors and fitness professionals still have a lot to learn about exercise and its effects on testosterone. Several factors besides your workout are involved. But one thing is clear: You need to make exercise a habit in order to get the full benefits. After exercising, testosterone levels rise -- but not for long. Sometimes it may just  be about 15 minutes after the exercise that testosterone is elevated. Sometimes it can be up to an hour! It is not yet clear what health effects, if any, these temporary boosts may have on you. But of course, exercise has many other well-known health benefits. For men who have low testosterone, exercise alone probably won’t raise their l

The abuse of painkillers may be disastrous, fatal, experts warn Trailing the numerous incidents of inexplicable violent behaviours of especially the youths, and the incessant incidents of preventable accidents resulting in fatalities, scientists have delved deep into ascertaining the root causes.

A Nutritional Approach to Dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis by Morgan Nwanguma Very often we have heard people complaining – ‘I have arthritis’, others will say ‘I have rheumatism’. And we discover that sometimes it is either of the two or both that they actually have. In as much as the fact remains that both rheumatism and arthritis are similar and related, there is still a thin line separating the two if you like. Experts say arthritis however, is the inflammation of a joint or joints, while rheumatism is defined as any painful disorder of the joints or muscles, or connective tissues. It is also a chronic autoimmune disease with inflammation of the joints and marked deformities. Something (possibly a virus) triggers an attack on the synovial (a thin membrane or tissue layer) by

Is Chocolate Good or Bad For Your Teeth? There’s some good amount of controversy out there whether chocolate is bad for your teeth or not. Or, in fact, whether it is actually good. Study indicates that dark chocolate has a good amount of antioxidants that inhibit the proliferation of a certain bacteria that causes tooth decay. This bacterium produces acids that affect the enamel in our teeth. The antioxidants in chocolate counter the effects of this acid production. On the other hand, there is the question and concern about chocolate’s sugar levels. But there is one more ingredient in chocolate that also needs to be mentioned, which is cocoa butter. Before we discuss sugar, let’s see what our sources say about cocoa butter. What we’ve been able to research is that cocoa butter has a c

Male Menopause?

Male Menopause?

Health & Life, Men's Health
MALE MENOPAUSE Women may not be the only ones who suffer the effects of changing hormones. Some doctors are noticing that men are reporting some of the same symptoms that women experience in perimenopause and menopause. Andropause, (Male-Menopause) is also known as Androgen deficiency in the ageing male (ADAM for short). As men age, their testosterone levels tend to decrease. This shift can cause physical, emotional, and psychological changes. A healthy man has a testosterone level of 300–1,200 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter). A man’s testosterone level usually peaks in his 20s. After age 30, the average man’s testosterone level declines one per cent each. Thus, by age 70, a man’s testosterone level might reach 50 per cent of his pre-”menopause” level.” Unlike women, men can continue
