It is a fact of life that guys’ testosterone levels drop with age — by an average of about 1.6% per year after the age of 40, according to one major study. As a result, men lose about 30% of their muscle mass during their lifetimes. Of course, less muscle means less strength and less mobility, resulting in a greater risk of injury. According to the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, people suffering from sarcopenia (age-related muscle loss) have “2.3 times the risk of having a low-trauma fracture from a fall, such as a broken hip, collarbone, leg, arm, or wrist.”
T-Jack™ was formulated to help men get their mojo back. It features swiss chard, which is rich in vitamin E (an antioxidant that may improve testosterone levels); LJ100®, which clinical studies have demonstrated also increases testosterone (by 10.36%, according to a 2014 study); along with zinc — yet another test booster — and yohimbe, which enhances the libido.
So, if you want to put the pep back in your step, give T-Jack™ a try!
Is Swiss Chard Good for You?
Swiss chard is a good source of calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc, sodium, phosphorus and, particularly, vitamin E, which is believed to raise testosterone levels. Swiss chard is also a source of fiber, which is important in slowing digestion, keeping cholesterol at a healthy level and steadying blood sugar levels.
There have been numerous clinical studies examining the effects of LJ100®. One, conducted in 2002, showed that taking 100 mg of LJ100® for three weeks boosted DHEA levels by 47%, while 73% of the subjects tested (men between the ages of 31 and 52) showed an increase in free testosterone.
Another study, which took place in 2003, examined 14 healthy men with a median age of 25.6 years performing intense strength training for five weeks. The results suggested that LJ100® reduced body fat and increased muscle strength and size.
In still another study, 76 patients suffering from late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) were given 200 mg of LJ100® for a month. Whereas just 27 (35.5%) of the study participants had normal testosterone levels beforehand, 69 (90.8%) showed normal levels by the end of the study.
Yerba Mate Benefits
Yerba mate is an herbal tea that’s said to produce the energy of coffee, the health benefits of tea and the euphoria of chocolate. What it actually does, according to scientific studies, is reduce fat and, perhaps, lower blood sugar levels.
A 12-week study of overweight people found that those given three grams of yerba mate powder per day lost an average of 1.5 pounds and reduced their waist-to-hip ratio by 2%, versus an average gain of 6.2 pounds and an increased waist-to-hip ratio of 1% for those given a placebo.
Additionally, a 2011 study showed improvements in “both the basal glucose blood levels and in the response to insulin administration” in mice fed a high-fat diet and then given yerba mate.
Made from the bark of an African evergreen tree, yohimbe is believed to promote better blood flow.
In one study, yohimbe decreased body fat by 1.8 percentage points over the course of three weeks — a particularly impressive result given that the study was conducted with elite soccer players who were already in good shape.
Zinc is beneficial in maintaining heathy testosterone levels. In fact, a 1996 study showed that “dietary zinc restriction in normal young men was associated with a significant decrease in serum testosterone concentrations after 20 weeks of zinc restriction” and “zinc supplementation of marginally zinc-deficient normal elderly men for six months resulted in an increase in serum testosterone.” Hence, the study’s authors concluded “that zinc may play an important role in modulating serum testosterone levels in normal men.”
Also known as the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to sunlight and, like zinc, has been shown to raise testosterone levels. A 2009 study concluded that men getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D had “significantly higher levels of testosterone and FAI [free androgen index] and significantly lower levels of SHBG [sex hormone-binding globulin].”
