Why seniors get weak
I've been warning men of the dangers of low testosterone for years... and now that the mainstream is catching on, I wish I'd kept my mouth shut.
Now that they've "discovered" the problem, they're only too happy to offer you a dangerous Big Pharma solution.
You don't need their drugs... but you probably do need a natural testosterone boost, and a new study shows one more reason why: Low testosterone levels will turn you into a sickly weakling.
Australian researchers looked at data on more than 3,600 men between the ages of 70 and 88, and found that those with the lowest testosterone levels were most likely to be frail, or become frail over the following years.
These were sad, tired old people who had difficulty with basic acts like climbing a flight of stairs or walking a block, and facing conditions like diabetes, heart disease or arthritis.
Some of them were just plain wasting away.
Think that can't happen to you? Sorry, pal -- but it IS happening, right now, as you sit there reading this.
Men need more testosterone as we age, but nature's played a cruel trick on us: Our bodies make less and less every year.
Low testosterone won't just increase your odds of frailty -- it can hurt you in every way, from low energy levels to sex problems to cobwebs in your brain. And it doesn't wait for your golden years. These problems can start at just about any time from middle age on.
So here's what you need to do: First, turn off the TV so you don't have to listen to that goofball in the commercials prattle on about "low T."
God forbid they actually use the word "testosterone."
Then, you'll need to have your levels checked -- but don't ask your regular doctor to do it, because he'll just push a prescription for dangerous synthetic testosterone on you.
He's seen the commercials, too.
Instead, visit a doctor who has expertise in natural hormones. He can check your levels, top you off naturally -- and keep tabs on you to make sure it's working.
