As the latest research reveals, there are numerous everyday habits that seem to be harming the male testosterone levels, and with that, bringing men closer to issues such as sexual disorders, infertility due to reduced sperm count, quality, and motility, relationship issues, and bigger health issues.
Low testosterone levels and infertility issues require immediate attention. The good news is that by eliminating the following habits of yours, you will successfully begin to help your testosterone levels to increase.
These habits harm your testosterone levels and sperm count
Not getting enough sleep
Not getting the required amount of sleep each night can really harm your overall physical and mental health. Sleep disorders have been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, mental disorders, and yes, even low testosterone levels and infertility among men, among other health issues.
In fact, it is worth mentioning that in a scientific research published in the Journal of Fertility and Sterility, it was discovered that men who spend 6 or fewer hours sleep each night were estimated to being more likely to struggle with infertility, as compared with men who slept 7 or more hours each night.
Lack of sleep has been linked to a decline in the testosterone production in the human body, which means that the lack of sleep is directly causing your sperm quality, motility, and count to decline. Remind yourself to avoid staying up late and creating a sleep schedule that will allow you to sleep at least 7 to 8 hours each night.
Living with too much stress
Stress has been linked to an increased risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, mental issues, relationship issues, and much more, among which is a decline in testosterone levels.
According to research made at the Columbia University, men who have been struggling with high stress levels have been found to experience a greater decline in their testosterone productions. This should not come as a surprise knowing for a fact that cortisol, the stress hormone, and testosterone simply do not work alongside each other. Any increase in cortisol levels causes an almost immediate decline in testosterone levels. So go ahead and try to relax as much as possible, focusing on the positive things in your life and the people that you love. In addition, regular sleep, yoga, and meditation can prove as pretty effective relaxation techniques.
Drinking too many beers
Who does not like drinking a couple of beers while watching a game with his friends? It is pretty unlikely that you will find a man that does not like the taste of this magical drink. But unfortunately, this magical drink, when drank in excessive amounts, brings you closer to numerous health risks. And what is even more unfortunate, one of those risks is the risk of low testosterone levels.
Excessive alcohol intake can actually increase the levels of estrogen hormones in the male body, which will affect the testosterone levels by causing them to drop. If you are trying to enhance your testosterone levels, then it might be for the best to watch out for the number of beers that you drink from now on. It might be a good idea to limit your alcohol intake to one to two glasses and, of course, not drink each day of the week.
Not being physically active enough
Regular physical activity will not only help you build strong and lean muscles that are worth showing around, but it will also keep your whole body healthy and strong. From your muscles, heart, lungs, brain, bones, everything in your body will benefit from the regular physical activity.
Men who are not physically active on a regular basis are estimated to be more likely to develop a sexual disorder and struggle with low testosterone levels and infertility, as compared with men who are physically active at least 5 days in the week. Regular physical activity is probably the best natural testosterone booster known to men. We would recommend lifting weights and trying cardio workouts as these are the most beneficial physical activities linked to the biggest increase in testosterone levels, and with that, an improved sperm count, motility, and quality.
Keeping your phone in your pocket
Let us ask you this – where do you keep your phone while you are out conquering the world? We would guess your front pocket, based on numerous observations and questions asked. Trust us – it is a good thing that women keep their phones in those big handbags that they are carrying around with them everywhere.
Keeping your phone in the front pocket has been linked to a decline in sperm motility, count, and quality due to the extensive radiation that is emitted from your phone being placed near the scrotum. We do recommend you to keep your phone in a pocket inside your jacket, as far away as possible from your testicles as a pretty important measurement to protect your sperm quality, motility, and count.
The elimination of too much stress, being physically active, sleeping in, and carrying your phone someplace else other than your front pocket, will surely help your testosterone levels to improve and any infertility issues to resolve themselves. No man should struggle with infertility, and that is why it is essential to find the source of this problem and eliminate it as soon as possible. In the meantime, these lifestyle changes of yours will help you accomplish this goal as well.
