Around 30, men start to lose testosterone in their bodies. Low testosterone can lead to lower energy, reduced sex drive, weight gain, and depression. Many doctors prescribe testosterone steroids that can leave unwanted side effects and cannot be administered to older men. Fortunately, there are many natural supplements and therapies available you can help boost the production of free testosterone in your body, without the nasty side effects you’d get from anabolic steroids.
Researchers are finding that light therapy can have a positive effect on male infertility as natural light exposure on a men’s testes has been shown to increase the motility of sperm. A 2016 Italian study evaluated men who had been diagnosed with low libido. Researchers tested the testosterone levels of men who were receiving a clinical dose of light therapy and found that participants saw an increase in their T-levels.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Studies show that when the human body absorbs red and near-infrared light, it helps increase ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Studies also show that these wavelengths help stimulate the Leydig cells, which plays a crucial role in producing testosterone.
For men who don’t want to try light therapy, many supplemental vitamins can feed your body what it needs to get optimal testosterone production. Eating a diet rich in minerals and nutrients is crucial to making sure your body is at its optimal testosterone production ability. Unfortunately the modern diet falls short of micronutrient and testosterone boosting vitamins. Fortunately, testosterone boosters are formulated to be safer alternatives to anabolic steroids. Many men take these supplements to feed them micronutrients they may be deficient in because of the modern diet.
