Our Favorite Standard Process and Mediherb products for common game-time issues.
If you're a man in your late 40s or 50s, you might be wondering why your libido has taken a nosedive, or why you're having trouble adapting to stress, concentrating on small tasks and digesting your food. Low testosterone levels and low stomach acid levels may be your issue.
Testosterone is the male sex hormone that helps build muscle mass and regulate sex drive and energy levels. It also helps maintain bone density and aids in sperm production.
However, declines in serum testosterone can be up to 40 to 50 percent lower by the time a man reaches age 60. This observation led to terms such as “andropause” and “testosterone deficiency syndrome” being used to describe a set of clinical and biochemical symptoms which occur in middle-age and elderly men.
Symptoms may include:
- ❏ Low Libido
- ❏ Increased Fat Mass
- ❏ Decreased Muscle Mass
- ❏ Loss of Concentration
- ❏ Erectile Dysfunction
- ❏ Decreased Libido
- ❏ Low Mood
- ❏ Decreased Bone Mineral Density
- ❏ Low to No Energy
Men have stressful lives, and it's taking a toll on their testosterone levels.
Lets's dive into the key Standard Process and MediHerb products used to combat stress, support cardiovascular health and better digest your food.
Male Hormone Pathways
Adaptogenic and tonifying herbs for supporting healthy testosterone levels, fertility and stress adaptation.
Adaptogens (like ashwagandha) work to improve your ability to adapt to stress by regulating the balance of hormones in your body. Tonics (like Tongkat Ali) help facilitate energy and hormone production.
Have you ever done something and felt like you could do anything? You were in the zone, and nothing could stop you.
That's what adaptogens and tonics do. They help keep you there.
Tongkat Ali and Ashwagandha for Healthy Hormones
Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma Longifolia) is a traditional herb from Southeast Asia. It's known for its use as a general tonic for energy and as a male aphrodisiac. This herb is associated with increasing testosterone levels, which improve all aspects of male sexual function – including fertility.
Ashwagandha is an ancient herb that is known to help people cope with stress and improve their quality of life. “For thousands of years, Ashwagandha has been used to replenish the body’s vital reserves and support the body when it is faced with fatigue, physical, and mental stress,” said Kerry Bone, Founder of Mediherb.
Foundational support for digesting protein, fats and carbohydrates.
Whatever you call it… gas, flatulence, farts… it is your body giving clues about your digestive organs. Most food has some degree of protein, fat, and carbohydrate in it.
These nutrients are called your macronutrients! We need these things to make energy, hormones, and repair our tissues.
When protein makes you cut the cheese, then it is typically the silent but deadly variety. This is because that food you are eating contains tons of protein that slowly decomposes and putrefies. It’s exactly like leaving chicken scrapes in your kitchen garbage overnight. Pee-yew! (Indo-European root is ‘pu’ meaning to rot or decay).
When proteins putrefy they give off Hydrogen Sulfide which creates that rotten egg smell.
