Are You In Your 40’s? Have You Measured Your Testosterone Yet..?
By Johnathan P Cumberwell
The average male on planet earth is today estimated to live to about 80 years. If you are currently in your 40’s, that means you have come to the approximate half-way mark.
And when we men get to our 40’s (or thereabouts), some noticable changes often start to happen to our bodies.
Some of us start putting on weight more easily than before. Many of us then start dieting or hitting the gym.
Our energy levels may also decline, we may start to lose muscle mass, and depression and other mental issues may start to enter our lives
Our sex drive will often also start to taper off.
And for many it becomes more and more difficult to get erections.
All of this will often be related to falling testosterone production.
Because we normally start to lose testosterone as we get older.
From about age 30, our testosterone production tend to decrease by about 1% each year. And when you have gotten into your 40’s, your testosterone production may therefore already be significantly lower.
So, if you experience any of the above, you may want to go get your testosterone level checked. This is easily done with a blood test, and most doctors are able to quickly do this for you.
In the chart above you see what average testosterone leves are for men of various ages.
If your testosterone is lower than this, then you are most certainly on the low end. And even if you are in line with the numbers above, you may still be deficient.
That is because average testosterone levels are significantly lower today than they were for men 20 or 30 years ago. In other words, testosterone production is falling in men year after year.

The bottom line is:
Testosterone is incredibly important for you. Not only for sexual functions, but also for overall well-being, for resistance to infections, and your total health.
Therefore, you would be smart to try to maintain a healthy production of this hormone.
