Men develop hormonal imbalances starting in their early thirties. The most common male hormones: testosterone, DHEA, human growth factor hormone, and pregnenolone all play a role in male hormone health. Most men enter the andropause phase which decreases hormone production. After the age of thirty, the male hormones decrease about 10% every +/-12 years. Hormonal imbalance can occur from abnormal stress levels, poor diet, lack of sleep, smoking, and alcohol intake.
The most common symptoms include:
- erectile dysfunction
- low libido or sex drive
- muscle atrophy (wasting away)
- weight gain
- urinary problems
- sleep apnea
- hair loss
