Could it be low T if I have a hard time getting turned on? Me and my wife are under a lot of stress, our sex life sucks right now, and I got a bunch of stuff I am dealing with myself. What I am asking, is I will see a hot girl and think she is hot, but there is NOT any sort of turning on that happens. Is that typical, or a sign of low t? Even in my life with wife its hard to get turned out, but maybe low level depression?
What about ashwaganda or ginger, both of those are supposed to boost T
Yes, this is likely a testosterone related issue... But there could be a host of things going on here.
What is your sleep like? Nutrition on point? Regular exercise? Extreme life stess?
The general depression and weight gain coupled with low libido are usually signs of lower Testosterone.
DIM ans Ashwaganada are helpful... But supplements only facilitate if you're doing the other things well also.
You could have Test in the high 900s or eve 1000 but if you're not mentally right you will have issues.
Not advising anything, but I would examine those other factors first and get them on point before getting blood work, remember bloodwork is only a snapshot in time. So if you're living hard for a couple months then get bloodwork vs fix the other things you'll have significantly different results via labs.
What brand of Maca are you guys using? I bought this and tried mixing it into protein shakes, it smells and tastes absolutely terrible.
Stuff from True nutrition (truenutrition.com) is good to go and mixes well. I'd mix with a scoop of protein (whey isolate or casein depending on when you are using it) the company is very good and a serious, no bs company that saves you some food money.
I like their ZMA and sleep aid for occasional use when ive been stressed and not sleeping really well.
