In men, free testosterone is responsible for body energy, stamina and sex drive. As a man grows older, he tends to suffer from low sex drive, poor stamina and lack of sexual interest. This is as a result of the testosterone getting bound by the hormone building globulin. Only 2% of testosterone are left free which are responsible for providing the body with energy and sex drive. Normally, a man should have about 800 free testosterone. Lesser number may result in erectile dysfunction.
Luckily, some of the mentioned causes of erectile dysfunction can be remedied or at least reduced.
*Through reduction of alcohol consumption.
*Reducing the use of tobacco.
*Engagement in sports activities.
*Regular medical checkups.
