Tackle Low T With This Mineral Secret

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you’re a man over 50, then you already know there are lots of good reasons to keep your testosterone levels up.

This hardworking hormone helps your body stay muscular, keeps your bones strong, wards off belly fat and is important for a healthy sex drive.

And according to brand-new research from Boston University, there’s one more reason you should be maintaining a healthy T level — your heart.

You see, scientists have found that long-term testosterone therapy may slash your risk of dying from heart disease.

And the best part? There’s an easy way to get your T levels up without a prescription.

Believe it or not, mainstream docs once tried to scare aging men away from testosterone, arguing that it could be bad for your heart.

And that was always pure nonsense. I mean, if testosterone was unhealthy for your heart, teenage boys would be dropping like flies.

The fact is, your muscles need testosterone – and your heart is no different.

For this latest study, researchers studied two groups of men aged 60 years or more for eight years. Half were taking testosterone therapy, and the other half weren’t.

After taking a closer look at their medical records, the scientists made an incredible discovery…

19 of the men in the untreated group died from heart issues. Furthermore, there were 30 nonfatal strokes and 26 nonfatal heart attacks in this group.

However, the testosterone group had absolutely no heart-related deaths, heart attacks or strokes.

This means keeping your T levels up is crucial if you want to avoid heart-related deaths, strokes and heart attacks.

As in zilch. Nada.

But if you go to your doc for help with your T, they’re likely going to prescribe you painful injections, messy gels or annoying patches full of synthetics.

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to boost your T levels without having to go to the doctor or fill your body full of chemicals — taking zinc.

One study shows that taking 30 mg of zinc daily can increase testosterone levels significantly.

Additionally, healthy zinc levels can decrease your risk for heart disease and arterial stiffness.

So taking zinc is like giving heart disease a one-two punch!

To increase your zinc levels, you can eat certain foods like oysters, beef, pork, chicken and nuts. Or you can take a zinc supplement to insure you’re getting at least 30 mg daily. These are available at your local pharmacy or through natural health retailers.

Live well,
