Although many experts don’t endorse the term, ‘the male menopause’ has become more widely discussed in recent years.
The reason that medical experts generally avoid this terminology is that the ‘male menopause’, or ‘manopause’, sounds like a sudden change in the body due to a drop in testosterone, similar to how a woman going through the menopause will experience a drop in her estrogen levels.
It is a fact that men’s testosterone does reduce as they get older. According to the NHS, “testosterone levels fall as men age, (with a) decline (that) is steady at less than 2% a year from around the age of 30 to 40.”
However, in truth, the symptoms that are often referred to as the ‘male menopause’, such as low energy, loss of libido and erectile dysfunction, can often be due to psychological or lifestyle factors.
That being said, there is little doubt that testosterone plays an important role in the function of men, such as the development of bones and muscles, hair growth and much more.
Lewtress is a company that is currently producing supplements which claim to help men who are experiencing symptoms that relate to what has been coined the “manopause”.
The company state that their Bombyx and Microbiome range are of particular use in this area. It also claims that their Tongkat Ali supplement “reduces the ageing effect on the male reproductive system by increasing the body’s own free testosterone bioavailability.”
Adding that, “It boosts energy and supports healthy testosterone levels, vitality, sex drive and healthy blood circulation.” They also claim that their Kombucha range is “particularly relevant to this subject.”
Generally speaking, it is recommended that you do plenty of objective research and perhaps even contact a medical professional or nutrition expert before taking supplements relating to body change.
