A healthier lifestyle aids in higher hormone levels, and higher hormone levels induce a more active, healthier lifestyle. When hormone levels decline, we become less active and can gain weight. As weight is gained, hormones are stored in fat and become unavailable to be used by the body. Lack of exercise, excessive alcohol use, smoking, and a poor diet can all have effects on reducing hormone levels.
For the best results, hormone restoration does not only include testosterone supplementation, but a lifestyle change that combines exercise, proper diet, and the proper use of vitamins and natural supplements.

Men who supplement with testosterone can experience health risks. It is very important to discuss the risks versus benefits of testosterone therapy with your doctor or pharmacist before starting any testosterone or hormone supplementation therapy. One of the most common risks associated with testosterone therapy is the possible risk of heart attack and stroke.
