ANTIOXIDANTS INCREASE TESTOSTERONE
Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – Testosterone is secreted primarily by the testicles of males and, to a lesser extent, the ovaries of females. Small amounts are also secreted by the adrenal glands in both men and women. Free radicals and oxidative stress from aging damage cells that make testosterone, especially Leydig cells in the testicles. Studies show that antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and oxidative stress and thereby repair damaged cells, including Leydig cells.
Low testosterone symptoms include: low libido for both men and women, malaise, depression, sleep disorder, muscle weakness, lack of motivation, poor memory and concentration, among others.
