MEN-opause: When Diet & Exercise Are Not Enough

As you age, your body is constantly changing.

What you were once able to eat, drink and do in your teenage years is not the same as when you enter your twenties, thirties and beyond.

Even if you come to understand this unfortunate reality, it can be challenging to make healthier lifestyle changes. 

And, even if you adjust your diet and start exercising, what can you do about your hormones?

Women aren't the only ones who go through menopause. Men also undergo a change in life called andropause, which is also known as "male menopause." This occurs when androgens like testosterone and DHEA decrease and estrogen increases.

The result is a slower metabolism, less muscle and more body fat. Testosterone is essential in the male body to help build protein and is crucial for a normal sex drive.

Testosterone is also responsible for prostate gland growth, production of blood cells in bone marrow and bone function.

What other hormones besides testosterone should you be checking in your yearly blood work?

Dr. Jeffry Life joins Dr. Mike to discuss natural ways men can increase androgens and decrease estrogen for improved virility, libido, physique and mental focus.
