Natural testosterone boosters are a dietary supplement designed to maximize the body's production of the male sex hormone, testosterone. They are a completely legal and natural product and are part of an ever expanding market in terms of new products.
They usually will exhibit the greatest benefits for males that are over the age of 25. The reason for this is that the body is in its prime years of producing its optimal hormone levels from the mid-teen years until about the age of 25. Once men hit the age of 25 or so, our natural levels begin to decrease on a yearly basis. Ever notice that you just don't feel like you used to or aren't seeing the same kind of results at the gym that you did when you were 19? Natural testosterone boosters will aid you greatly in this area to bring you back to your prime. For you younger guys reading this (early 20's), taking these products won't necessarily have any negative effects, but at the same time you probably won't see many positive effects from these products either.
Low testosterone can result in decreased libido (sex drive), decreased energy, weight gain, decrease in muscle mass and strength and sexual dysfunction. These are all symptoms that can occur as a result of low testosterone and it will affect some individuals more than others and some may not notice the effects until a few years after the effects have started.
There are many products available today that have been shown to increase natural testosterone production, but no products have surpassed the popularity of the tribulus based ones. Tribulus is a naturally occurring plant that has been shown to increase the amount of testosterone production when used for an extended period. Another up and coming product that is gaining attention and with good reason is D-Aspartic Acid (DAA).
Many will mislabel natural testosterone boosters as 'steroids' or simply put them in the same category as prohormones, however, this is far from the truth. As a matter of fact, most of the negative media coverage surrounding supplements has been in relation to prohormone products. These products are compounds that convert into an anabolic steroid in the body. This is a gray area on the supplement scene and the FDA has been in the process of banning these various products. Regardless, there is a lot of misinformation surrounding them. It's important to understand that these are very powerful products and aren't to be used by those new to supplements.
