The lack of a clear outward manifestation of the chemistry and physiology unique to aging men complicates the recognition of andropause, the middle-age stage in male development comparable to women’s menopause. Men can reproduce well into and beyond middle age. However, a man’s sexual desire and potency vary considerably, frequently depending on his testosterone level. Recent research indicates that environmental agents are exacerbating the decline in testosterone levels that is endemic in aging men—a gradual decline that is quite normal. Insecticides, industrial materials, pharmaceuticals, and foods all contain estrogen-blocking agents. Men are daily bombarded with a “cocktail” of estrogen agents that disrupt the delicate testosterone balance that defines them as male. However, as recent medical research has revealed, testosterone replacement therapy with Low T drugs is not a good option due to the increased risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke, as well as the possibility that the body will develop a dependence on pharmaceutical testosterone and will cease producing any on its own.

Stephen Harrod Buhner explains why men require assistance in maintaining testosterone levels as they age and how naturally occurring phytoandrogens—plant medicines that contain male hormones—can safely compensate for the depletion caused by the environment. Buhner explains how each phytoandrogen works, when it is appropriate to use it, and the most effective method of administration, providing all men with a safe, natural, and effective method of maintaining optimal testosterone levels well into old age.
