Energy is a priceless commodity these days. Often women may talk about how much they have going on and how tired they are, but men experience this, too. You may feel tired all day at work. You don’t have the energy to work out at the gym anymore like you used to. You want to be the best dad and husband you can be, but you are also exhausted at night and on the weekends. What can you do to get your energy and zest for life back? Learn 5 common causes of low energy in men so that you can re-energize your life!
5 Common Causes of Low Energy in Men
1. Low Testosterone
Testosterone peaks in men somewhere around the age of 18 to 25. Then gradually, over time, testosterone declines by 2 to 3% a year. So by the time a man is 40, his testosterone level may be half of what it was when he was in his early 20s. And when he’s 50, it could a third.
Testosterone helps maintain a healthy metabolism and improve energy. Testosterone is important for the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the tissues and to the cells, so that the cells can produce energy within the power plants of the cells, called the mitochondria. Testosterone is also important in the production of the active thyroid hormone which governs your metabolism.
Research shows that one of the most frequent reasons that men take supplemental testosterone is to get more energy. A study demonstrated that men most frequently claimed testosterone improved their energy, libido, and muscle mass, as well as sense of well-being. (1)
The natural solution is to supplement with bioidentical testosterone that is identical to the testosterone made by your body. You can take testosterone injectably with shots, in a cream form, or you can take oral capsules.
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones. If your thyroid gland is making enough thyroid hormones, but those hormones are not properly used at the cellular level, then you can still experience the symptoms of hypothyroidism. With hypothyroidism, your metabolism slows down and you don’t have the energy you need to function well, resulting in fatigue.
It’s important that a doctor evaluates you according to your symptoms, clinical history and basal body temperature, and not by just a single blood test. It’s also important to get the proper treatment with natural thyroid supplementation. Take our symptom checker to find out if you have other symptoms of low thyroid function.
3. Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue is a common health problem that Americans face today. Unfortunately, most are unaware that this could be the cause of their symptoms because their doctor never brought it up as a possibility. Like hypothyroidism, it is a common condition that is overlooked by conventional medicine.
Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands cannot produce enough cortisol to meet the demands of your body, so you feel increasingly fatigued, as well as other symptoms of adrenal fatigue such as anxiety, chronic infections, dizziness and headaches.
The solution is to supplement with bioidentical cortisol to help support your adrenal glands. Vitamin C also helps support the adrenal glands.
4. Poor Sleep/Lack of Sleep
It goes without saying that good quality sleep, and lots of it, helps you to feel energized. You can definitely feel the difference in your energy level after a night or two of little sleep. Try to get between 7 to 9 hours of sound sleep each night. Here are 12 secrets on how to sleep better.
5. Nutrient Deficiencies
The Standard American Diet (or “SAD” diet) consists of refined and processed foods, such as fried foods, soft drinks, potato chips, pizza and fast food. It is lacking in adequate nutrition, leading to nutrient deficiencies which deplete energy. Common issues like stress, unhealthy eating, and exhausted adrenal glands deplete your body’s stores of essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that you need to feel your best.
Be sure to eat lots of organic fruits and vegetables. Get on a good yeast-free eating program. Cut out the junk food, processed food and fast food. Diets high in sugar and simple carbs cause blood sugar spikes and drops, and can make you sluggish.
Supplements to Help Energize You
Energy Formula Multivitamin provides you with more than 27 essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients. It improves overall energy production at a cellular level, offers cardiovascular and immune support, helps to decrease stress levels and improve mood.
B-Complex – B vitamins should be at the foundation of your vitamin regimen. B vitamins are water-soluble (which means they are excreted through urine and not stored in fat) and they are also very easily depleted from your body through common daily activities such as exercise, stress, caffeine and taking prescription drugs. B-Complex is a blend of the most highly absorbable forms of each B vitamin, including B12, all which work synergistically with one another to replenish your B vitamin stores, give you back your energy, reduce stress, and detoxify your body naturally.
