The Role of Testosterone Levels in Depression

The Role of Testosterone Levels in Depression

Changes in hormones, especially the sex hormones, can have devastating physical and emotional effects on both men and women. We take the example of menopause in women, where fluctuating hormone levels can cause severe mood swings, emotional breakdowns, and even depression.
The common misconception is that this only happens to women, while the truth is that it can just as easily affect men of all ages who suffer from fluctuating testosterone levels.

It is most commonly experienced among men over the age of 40, when the testosterone levels start going down more and more. This time is often referred to as a “midlife crisis” or “Andropause” which is basically the male version of menopause.

As with menopause, Andropause can have a variety of symptoms, one of which is emotional changes that could include depression.

Testosterone is a very important hormone in the male body as it plays a role in many of the important functions such as building and maintaining muscle mass, producing sperm cells, maintaining bone density, and controlling sex drive.

It is vital to monitor and simply be aware of changes in your testosterone levels in order to avoid physical and mental health issues.

Natural Treatment

For men it is advisable to increase testosterone levels by increasing resistance training at least 45 minutes per day and eating a healthy diet. We also recommend taking a natural supplement like the Manna Andropause to help increase testosterone without any side effects.

For women we recommend taking the Manna Menopause Support in conjunction with a healthy diet and daily exercise.
