Why Skipping Happy Hour Could Help Raise Your Testosterone Level

Excessive Drinking Can Lower Your Testosterone

Studies have found that excessive consumption of alcohol can lower your testosterone level.

The National Institutes of Health is warning men that excessive drinking can lower your testosterone levels, weaken bones, and put men at a greater risk of developing osteoporosis.

The National Resource Center on Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States, recently released a report that found that drinking alcohol in excess increases the risk of serious fractures, such as hip and vertebral fractures, which are common injuries seen in chronic drinkers.

This condition is due to the fact that alcohol consumption interferes with the production of vitamin D, which is essential for the bones to properly absorb the calcium that strengthens them.

In the long run, this condition can trigger osteoporosis, a bone condition that can progress silently over the years, but it does not produce symptoms until a fracture or specific pain occurs.

The same report also found that increased alcohol consumption also lowers your testosterone level. The institution notes that men who tend to drink alcohol excessively also produce less testosterone. Among its many other functions, testosterone also produces cells that stimulate the formation of bone mass.

At the same time, alcohol can also increase the production of cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone,” which contributes to the breakdown of bones, among other harmful effects on the body.

Weaker bones are only one of the many debilitating effects of low testosterone. Excessive drinking leading to a drop in testosterone can also cause:

  • Weight gain, particularly belly fat
  • Low libido, erectile dysfunction, and other sexual health issues
  • Lack of energy
  • Loss of lean muscle
  • Sleep disorders
  • Memory loss and cognitive difficulties

Lowering your alcohol consumption may help you to maintain a higher testosterone level. However, if you are diagnosed with low testosterone, the only way to raise your testosterone levels is with testosterone replacement.

What Every Man Needs to Know Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Men with low testosterone can make vast improvements with testosterone replacement therapy.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that a man’s testosterone level drops as he ages.

Once you are over 35, you can expect to lose testosterone at a rate of 1% to 2% every year. This is what is so important for men to understand the many benefits of testosterone replacement therapy.

Prescription testosterone replacement therapy for men is available via injection, topical creams or gels, skin patches, subdermal pellets, or oral medication. We specialize in bioidentical pellet therapies.

Testosterone replacement therapy is only available with a doctor’s prescription. You cannot buy testosterone online or anywhere without a doctor’s prescription. While any doctor can write you a prescription for testosterone replacement therapy, you should work with a clinic like Dallas Anti-Aging and Wellness that specializes in age optimization services and age-related hormone decline.

” I had just had my 50th birthday, but I did not feel much like celebrating. I was tired, irritable, and I didn’t have the energy to be productive at work and at home the way I used to be. I decided to go to Dallas Anti-Aging and Wellness Center to have my testosterone levels tested. Sure enough, I was diagnosed with low testosterone. I just completed my first course of therapy, and after six months, I feel and look amazing! Edgar S., Colleyville, TX
