Increase Testosterone and Lower Blood Pressure

Around 65 million people in the US have high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. That is one in three Adults living. Countless more are at risk from developing it. And if you are 60+ years of age you have a 50% chance of being afflicted. What is worse, that over the course of an average American’s lifetime the chance of developing high blood pressure is 90%.

As we age our blood pressures slowly creep up, and increases more rapidly if we have other risk factors. Diet has a major impact. A skewed sodium/potassium ratio and heavy drinking are shown to increase blood pressure.

Not getting enough physical activity is known to increase the danger of developing high BP. This is a twofold issue as being overweight or obese, increases blood pressure, and is partly caused by low activity levels.

Having high blood pressure is not inevitable. There is plenty you can do to help prevent, and treat high blood pressure.

One interesting bit of research coming out of the International Journal of Impotence Research has shown a direct correlation between Testosterone levels and Systolic Blood Pressure, the higher the levels of Testosterone, the lower the systolic BP.

The research didn’t make any conclusions to why this happens but one explanation is that Testosterone is going to lower body fat, increase lean muscle, and help stop inflammation. All causes of high BP.

There are three steps to increase Testosterone and help Lower your BP.

1.)    Intense Strength Training. Using compound exercises utilizing multiple muscle groups you will increase your testosterone production by 40-50%. This helps you lose fat, build muscle, and fight the downward cycle of aging.

2.)    Interval Training has been shown to increase your testosterone tremendously when compared to steady paced cardio. Not, only that it actually increases your heart’s strength not just it’s endurance. Heart attacks don’t happen because their heart didn’t have enough endurance, but they die, because they heart is not STRONG enough to pump the blood through the clogged artery, or pass that blockage.

3.)    Hormone Replacement Therapy. This option is not for everyone, and should only be considered after you have tried the first two measures in raising your testosterone. If you think Testosterone replacement is right for you, consult an Anti-Aging Doctor in your area. If you need a referral please visit Find an Anti-Aging Doctor

Remember Aging is Inevitable, but Looking and Feeling Old is Optional…
