Winston,
If you have to pee a lot at night, that doesn't mean you have a prostate problem. The urethra goes from the bladder to the end of your you-know-what and passed through the prostate. So men with swollen prostates have a problem getting all the pee out. But if you drank a lot of fluids and have to pee a lot, that doesn't mean you have prostate problems. Some people have smaller or more sensitive bladders.

Testosterone is made in the testicles. It is a hormone that your body produces. Just think of it as some kind of liquid chemical that your body makes. The prostate is a gland, not a hormone. (Glands make hormones, but the testes make testosterone.) The prostate is that thing that pumps during an ejaculation and most of the fluid is stored there for that sort of thing. There are other glands that contribute to it as well.

As you age, testosterone production is known to drop by 1-2% each year. It's a natural process in men that can lead to decreased physical performace and lower energy levels.
If your you're feeling less drive and motivation, lower energy levels, less results at the gym or even lower sexual interest, Progene's unique dual action formula might be able to help you get back what you've lost.

Don't get labs from there, saliva/urinary labs can be reliable, but often aren't very reliable, and it's very dependent on the company. Best thing to do if you have a doctor is just ask for your a lab to check your levels and say you suspect lower testosterone. If your doctor won't do it, you can find other tests online that are blood tests you go to a lab for (Quest Diagnostics, etc) and you can see. Generally a private price for blood work is about $50-100. Obviously, too, if you have a doctor's appointment and he's testing all your blood cholesterol, triglycerides, etc levels, then just ask if you can get testosterone checked too.

This Dr Eric Berg has some good advice for raising your testosterone. He sounds very credible and knowledgeable and down to earth and looks very healthy himself too.



Dr. Berg talks about how to raise your testosterone.(men).

SYMPTOMS OF LOW TESTOSTERONE:
1. Prostate enlargement
2. Low Libido
3. Erectile Dysfunction (and performance)
4. Muscle Loss (loss of muscle mass)
5. Breast tissue (man breasts)
6. High voice
7. Loss of body hair (starting in lower legs)
8. Loss of vitality and energy
9. Sleeping problems
10. Belly fat
11. Loss of collagen

CAUSES:
1. High estrogen
2. Liver damage
3. High insulin
4. Low fat diets
5. Medications
6. Tap water
7. High aromatase (enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen)

SOLUTION:
1. Increase Growth Hormone (GH)
-protein (3-6 ounces)
-sleep
-intermittent fasting
2. Anti-estrogenic foods
-cruciferous (kale, broccoli, cabbage, boy choy, etc.)
3. Lower cortisol (stress hormone)
-sun (vitamin D)
-walking
-sleep more

DHT, the powerful form of testosterone is used to shrink the prostate, not enlarge it.

I periodically take DHEA, but those under 40 years old should not take it.

Also, DHEA is potent so you should not take more than 5 mg a day (10mg if you are 55 or older) on a long term basis. This is difficult because most stores sell 25 mg which is insanely dangerous for long term use.

The DHEA is just a small boost of testosterone on my intense workout days due to the conversion process.
