Optimal Testosterone Levels Decrease the Risk of Alzheimers Disease 10 August 2010
A study published in the August 2010 edition of the _Journal of Alzheimers Disease has found that men with optimal levels of free testosterone have a lower risk of developing Alzheimers disease.
Take home message: I continue to stress that maintaining an optimal level of testosterone for men as we get older is very important. As well as increasing energy, drive and confidence, optimal levels decrease the risk of Alzheimers disease. Maintaining an ideal body weight and anaerobic exercise are the best ways to maintain optimal levels. Fat cells contain the enzyme aromatase which converts testosterone to estrogen, decreasing free testosterone levels. Herbs such as tribulus, moomiyo and super foods such as maca may also help.
