5 Awesome Little Known Benefits of Having Naturally High Testosterone Levels

We have all heard the most common benefits of having high T. Such as the increased ability to build lean muscle mass, increased ability to burn fat for fuel, or the improved sexual performance and libido, bone health, etc. But there are also so many other awesome benefits that come along with high testosterone…

…And most people simply don’t know about them.

Just take a look at these 5:

1. Reduced Facial Fat

facial fat distribution and testosterone levelsIt’s a quite well known fact that increased testosterone levels make the facial muscles more prominent, and the bone structure more “chiseled” and angular.

But what most people don’t know, is that in men, testosterone also controls the fat distribution of the face.

In fact there’s quite a large pool of evidence suggesting that the higher the testosterone level, the less subcutaneous fat on the face.

I personally believe that high testosterone is the main ingredient to awesome facial aesthetics. T makes the the bone structure of the face more angular, and it increases the size and thickness of the facial muscles. The reduction of subcutaneous fat in the area amplifies the effect, creating a strong, angular, defined face.

Basing my assumption only on facial aesthetics, I would say that the model on the image above, has quite high serum testosterone levels.

2. Improved Mood

mood and testosterone levelsI have scanned through thousands of testosterone related studies through pubmed, and few trends have caught my eye on multiple testosterone replacement studies…

1. Men who have low – even hypogonadal – testosterone levels are often complaining about depression, feelings of irritability, anger, and poor quality of life (study, study, study).

2. When these men increase their testosterone levels (often through TRT) their quality of life, mood, and motivation increase dramatically (study, study, study).

I can relate to the studies on a personal level too. I never had clinically “low” testosterone levels, but they weren’t exactly high either at the time I started this journey of boosting T naturally…

…As my testosterone levels have gradually gone up throughout these years, my mood, success, and quality of life have all followed the trend. I actually believe that the grand success I’ve had with this blog, could be traced back to the testosterone driven thrive for success and competition.

3. Increased Basal Metabolic Rate

testosterone increases metabolic rateMen who have higher testosterone levels, can literally eat a bit more food without gaining weight, than men with low testosterone can.

There are two main reasons to this.

1. The first one is more well known, it’s the fact that testosterone directly inhibits the formation of new fat cells.

2. The second one is not that well known, and it’s the fact that testosterone greatly increases the basal metabolic rate (study, study, study).

As a guy who has an appetite of an elephant, I appreciate findings like these.

4. Women Love Testosterone

women are more attracted to testosteroneThis is something that can be easily understood just by using common sense.

Women – especially when they’re ovulating – are more attracted to masculine men.

More in detail, women are attracted to men who have high testosterone charasteristics, that or just high testosterone, as one study even suggests that women can also be attracted to the “smell” of high testosterone.

There’s an evolutionary reason for that. As women subconsciously seek the best “genes” to their children, and a man who has high testosterone levels, is exactly what their subconscious mind is looking for.

Not so surprisingly, Men with high testosterone levels are subconsciously attracted to feminine women who have high estrogen levels.

5. Improved Circulation

testosterone increases nitric oxide levelsImproved blood flow all-around the body is one of the not so well known – but awesome – benefits of high T.

Testosterone directly stimulates the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). This is a fancy way of saying that it increases the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that both widens and relaxes blood vessels and arteries.

This is one of the reasons why high testosterone is a good thing for your cardiovascular health, and one of the reasons why it’s borderline unhealthy and even dangerous to have clinically low T.

Nitric oxide improves your workouts, improves your erectile quality, shortens your recovery time after workouts, and simply just makes your body to operate much more efficiently as blood is flowing more freely.

Conclusion

There’s a load of benefits that come along with increased testosterone levels.

It increases your ability to build lean mass, improves fat loss, improves your sexual performance, increases female attraction, makes you feel better, and on continues the mounting pile of benefits…

…In short, if you’re not interested in maximizing your testosterone production, you’re missing out.

    I can vouch for #4. I was in laying in bed with a female last night and she mentioned how much she liked the way I smelled and how much it turned her on. This was after I had worn the same shirt all day, went to the gym, sparred with other dudes, became drenched in my own sweat as well as everyone else’s, took a cold shower with absolutely no soap or shampoo, changed back into the same clothes I was wearing, and then eventually met up with her. Keep in mind, I never use any soap or shampoo, cologne, body spray, etc. My detergent is unscented and so is my deodorant. When she told me, I seriously smelled myself because I didn’t believe her, lol. The crazy part was that I could barely smell anything. To me, I didn’t smell bad, but I didn’t smell that good either. I think it’s just something that only females can pick up on. If more people knew about this, the fragrance industry for men would be in some deep shit, lol. No one would waste their money on dumb shit like cologne when their own natural scent gets women horny.

    No. 6 is “your libido goes through the roof”. I mean, through the ROOF. That’s the part I like best, and I’ll tell you why :  immediate tangible benefit. Yes, I know long-term matters more, and everything else along those lines. But there’s something to be said about a benefit that can be felt literally within the first 24 hours, because that’s precisely the kind of thing that makes it easy to continue long term. Of course, I’m talking about exogenous test here, but therapeutic doses, not supra-physiological ones, nothing crazy (I’ve dabbled in the latter and prefer the former; because “through the roof” becomes “through the stratosphere” and that, my brothers, was the definition of “getting too much of a good thing”). For those who go the TRT route, my recommendation is to push for the high end of thetherapeutic dose range, also known as “2 tubes per day, not just 1”. That second tube makes all the difference. And read up on it as much as you can to learn how to safely and sanely get the most out of it and get the best bang for your buck. Anyway… two thumbs up, highly recommended.

    Your stating opinions, not facts regarding testosterone.
    Furthermore, you’re inaccurate.
