Everyone has heard of testosterone, we hear the word used all the time.
It’s used in ways to describe men and masculinity. It’s used to describe athletic and indeed sexual prowess.
Some of our favourite celebrities describe testosterone being tantamount to their well-being.
Everyone’s favourite boxer Rocky is quoted as saying:
We also have professional athletes like 48 year old (a veteran and still boxing professionally, after turning professional in 1992) former WBO world Heavy Weight Boxing Champion Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs attributing testosterone to mental health:
So, What Exactly is Testosterone?
Although it’s thought of as being predominantly a male hormone (and indeed it is and does belong to a class of male hormones called androgens), women also have testosterone. Albeit relatively small quantities that are released into a woman’s bloodstream by the ovaries and adrenal glands (read more by clicking here).
It’s a vital and powerful hormone that has the ability to influence:
In this blog, we’re going to look at just how important and essential testosterone is for the everyday man.
Normal Testosterone Levels
Male’s start producing testosterone on a much bigger scale as they hit puberty, through to adolescence and then peaking as they enter into adulthood. From here it will start to gradually drop each year.
Indeed, after the age of 30, most men will begin to experience a gradual decline in testosterone. More about that a little further on.
What most people are unaware of is that testosterone levels reach their peak around age 18 or 19 before declining throughout the remainder of adulthood.
Testosterone Declines With Age
As discussed above, testosterone levels are at their absolute peak during adolescence and into early adulthood.
The first signs of an increase in testosterone become apparent during puberty. Physical signs will develop in males and are usually defined with:
- Deepened voice
- Shoulders begin to get broader
- Facial hair and facial structure in general becomes more masculine
A statistic that shocks most people is that testosterone levels decline in males by roughly 1% per year after they’ve hit the relatively young age of 30!
The chart below demonstrates the typical decline in men at various ages, as you can see – as age progresses, typically testosterone decreases – especially between the ages of 40 – 50.
Low Testosterone Symptoms
Low levels of testosterone will essentially dampen some of the benefits explained above.
This drop in testosterone levels is sometimes termed hypogonadism, “male menopause” or andropause.
Some of the symptoms that may suggest you are suffering from low testosterone levels include:-
Physically, if you don’t suffer any of the above symptoms, in general will indicate a decent testosterone level, because of your ability to increase muscle mass, your libido and energy levels.
Testosterone is also key to making sure your bones grow and that they stay strong – they’re solid foundations for your vital organs.
Hopefully, if you didn’t realise the important and key roles testosterone plays within your body – now you do.

Honey contains boron, a mineral that has been linked to high testosterone. Honey is also packed with nitric oxide, which plays a major role in opening up blood vessels that help create erections.
