TESTOSTERONE : LONG TERMS SUCCESS VERSUS SHORT TERM HIT
Testosterone is the one of the most important hormones in men and is needed for normal male development and reproduction. Besides sexual function, a healthy level of testosterone stimulates muscle growth. Studies have also shown that testosterone can modify neurogenesis by favouring cell survival and maintaining cognitive function.
On the flip side, lower testosterone levels during ageing are linked to a loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and lower sexual activity. Low testosterone is also indicated in an increased risk of heart disease, cognitive decline, osteoporosis, joint pain, sleep disturbances, fatigue, anxiety and depression.

SINCE THE LATE 1970’s, RESEARCHERS IN THE USA & EUROPE HAVE SHOWN THAT TESTOSTERONE LEVELS HAVE BEEN DECLINING BY AROUND 1% PER YEAR.
Given this decline, it’s no wonder that Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has seen a 4 fold increase in men between the ages of 18 – 45, in the last 10 years. There has been a growing appreciation of the benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) for men with testosterone deficiency. A number of studies* have shown improved sexual desire and performance, improved mood, increased muscle mass and strength, decreased fat mass, and improved bone mineral density following TRT. (*Akerman et al., 2017; Rizk et al., 2017; Traish, 2018)
But it’s not a risk free treatment by any stretch of the imagination.
THE BAD NEWS : TRT COMES WITH IT'S OWN SET OF DOWNSIDES, NOT LEAST OF ALL - LOWERED SPERM COUNTS.
Risks associated with TRT can include worsening symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy and untreated sleep apnea and elevated liver toxicity, erythrocytosis, gynecomastia, infertility, and skin diseases (Bassil et al., 2009).
Why? Any exogenous testosterone administered to the body enters the blood stream, elevating the testosterone levels. The brain interprets this as a signal that there is enough testosterone, so it signals the testes to stop making more. This vicious cycle can continue downwards, if more testosterone in injected, In fact, TRT has actually been studied as a method of birth control, because 90% can have their sperm counts drop to zero whilst they are on it. And once you begin this treatment, it’s a never ending cycle.

THE GOOD NEWS : WE ARE AWARE OF THE CHALLENGES OF AGEING, AND FOR ALL OF THESE REASONS AND A LOT MORE, WE FORMULATED REBOOT.
With the clinical dose of TESTOFEN, a specialised fenugreek extract that has been proven in double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be a safe and effective way to increase testosterone levels, reduce age-related symptoms of hormonal decrease, and improve sexual function in healthy ageing males. Without the risk of increasing PSA levels.
Further to this, REBOOT contains additional herbs, such as tribulus, that has also been shown to have a significant effect on both total and free testosterone, in clinical studies.
It has been shown in multiple studies that with ageing, levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) are increased, leading to lower levels of free and bio-available testosterone as SHBG offers more sites for the free testosterone to bind to. This decreases the amount of testosterone available in the body for use by organs and for targeted function, with available free testosterone shown to steadily decline with age (Lapauw et al., 2008).
AGEING IS A GIVEN. HOW WE AGE IS A CHOICE.
Everyone is different, and we all make different choices in life. We don’t think it’s unreasonable to make that decision based on full information, do you? When deciding how you wish to age, is it unwise to look at every option available?
Here at Be Spunki, we are committed to providing as much third party information as possible, so you can make your decisions wisely.
