Hey, Matt Cook here, and testosterone levels tend to decline with age, just when memory begins to slow…
So I start thinking…
Is low testosterone causing mind and memory problems in men?
Well here’s what I found…
- A 2005 study of 565 World War II veterans found that higher testosterone levels in midlife were linked to better preservation of brain tissue in some, but not all, regions of the brain in late life.
- A 2004 study of 400 men aged 40 to 80 found that higher testosterone levels were associated with better cognitive performance in older men. No link was observed in younger individuals.
- A 2004 report from the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging evaluated 574 men over a 19-year period. Low free testosterone levels predicted an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, even after other dementia risk factors were taken into account.
- A 2002 study of 310 men with an average age of 73 found that higher levels of bioavailable testosterone were associated with better scores on three tests of cognitive function.
- A 2002 study of 407 men between the ages of 51 and 91 found that men with higher free testosterone levels achieved higher scores on four cognitive function tests, including visual and verbal memory.
- A 1999 study of 547 men between the ages of 59 and 89 found that high testosterone levels in older men were associated with better performance on several cognitive function tests.
And I don’t know about you, but I want to keep a sharp mind and memory for as long as I live.
I never want to be one of those old senile men who can’t care for themselves anymore.
I never want to be a burden on my family.
So if keeping healthy, high testosterone levels may help me stay young in mind and memory…
…why not try it?
