In men, testosterone is primarily produced in the gonads or testicles, and in women, the ovaries.
Both sexes also produce small amounts in the adrenal glands. As we get older and less testosterone is produced by the testicles and ovaries, your adrenal glands get pressured into trying to produce more to compensate for the massive loss.
This is why you want to optimize production by the testicles, especially in men since we need so much more of it.
What Causes Increase In Testosterone?
Testosterone is highest in the morning and lowest and lowest later in the day.
In the undersurface of the brain, the hypothalamus releases a gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH).
This signals the pituitary gland, which is located at the base of the brain, to produce LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone).
LH & FSH travel down, through the bloodstream, to your gonads and stimulate the production and release of testosterone and sperm in men.
Your body wants balance. Homeostasis.
How do I increase my testosterone naturally, and keep it high so I can have a higher libido, more muscle mass, less body fat, more energy, and be in a happier mood?
What’s important to note is that you can safely and naturally optimize your hormones at any age. So, don’t worry, and please don’t feel hopeless.
You don’t need to take drugs. And even if you decide to later in life, you should at least FIRST try to do it naturally so you don’t have any negative effects such as shrinking testicles, hair loss, zits, bad cholesterol levels, and so forth associated with testosterone drugs.
