Ever since the discovery and identification of hormones like testosterone and estrogen, the former has been associated with the “manly” man (think Bruce Willis in “Die Hard”) and the latter with the females. While you might not need to run barefoot through a Japanese office building to rescue hostages from a group of terrorists, you probably could use an increase in testosterone.
Like penis size, women say they don’t care about how much testosterone a guy has, but the research shows different. In studies, women were more apt to choose men with features caused by increased testosterone like a deeper voice, or a more masculine face, particularly during ovulation. But we don’t need scientists to tell us that women prefer manlier men, right? If you want to improve those manly features, there are some ways that you can increase your testosterone naturally.
What is Testosterone?
Contrary to popular mythology, both males and females have testosterone, just as both sexes have estrogen. It’s all in the levels how feminine or masculine you look, sound and act. This hormone resides in the testes, ovaries and adrenal glands and it produces male characteristics like a deep voice, a masculine face or body, increased sperm count, increased muscle mass and much more. While you can theoretically have too much testosterone, or “T”, most men could use a little more and there are surprising health benefits to increasing it like: elevated mood, improved circulation, increased BMR and more.
