MOST MEN do not have optimal testosterone levels. If your levels are ‘normal’, you may not be in the optimal range that is best for you. “Optimal levels” mean that you feel like the best version of yourself– you have the energy to perform daily activities and workouts, you build muscle easily, and you have a healthy sex drive. No two men will experience the exact same symptoms even if they are at the same level. If your testosterone is below your optimal level, you can experience fatigue, decreased sex drive or performance, increased body fat or weight, loss of bone and muscle mass, and moodiness or irritability. Not only do these symptoms effect how you feel, but other health issues may arise such as osteoporosis or depression.

CAUTION: I had one extremely fit and athletic young man write in who was taking a variety of supplements and foods that decreased testosterone's aromatization to estrogen. This included zinc supplementation and green tea extracts (EGCG). His claim was that, because he was so thin and had very low body fat, that his estrogen was likely too low and leading to a variety of health issues. It may be something to consider for the young and fit.
