Multiple factors : Many variable at play here. First is to optimize nutrition. You need healthy fats, including some saturated fat for hormone production.

Don't understand: Are you wanting you lower your current testosterone level or are you worried about losing it in the future. Your testosterone is now the highest it will be during your entire life. It will decline slowly and normally as you get older. There is no safe and appropriate way to lower it, but there is no need to do so. If it does fall too low, replacement is available later in life. ...Read more

Here are ...: You probably meant 200 mg instead of 200 ml; I assumed so. However, its dose may vary depending on being as initial or maintenance use to reach to what level based on clinical response correlating with blood level. Generally, 200 mg should be ok to start out, but how often should it be given to meet your individual need? Ask your Doc. Best wish... But, never ignore healthy lifestyle. ...Read more
Jury is still out: Recall that soy (protein) has been recommended as an alternative to estrogen to treat menopause in women. In men, estrogen (estradiol) decreases testosterone production. Therefore, if a guy ingests a lot of something that increases estrogen in his body, this could potentially decrease testosterone level. So while this is conjecture, read your ingredient labels carefully! ...Read more
Hair vs Testosterone: While men need some amount of testosterone in order to develop masculine characteristics, there is no link between higher levels of t ; more hair. In other words, you can't hazard a guess as to how much t someone has just by assessing how much hair s/he has. T is converted into Dht which is bad for hair so we often see bald men as more masculine for what that's worth. But no tried ; true link. ...Read more
Testosterone: Get exam and proper studies. If low there are gels (better than injections b/c daily gel gives you a steady daily level. Shot gives a burst initially but it can wear out in a few weeks). Need to check lipid, hemoglobin, liver test, testosterone and prostate level every 6 month if taking testosterone. ...Read more
Carefully!: Sorry! i couldn't resist. Testosterone is typically measured by blood test, same as you might do to check for high cholesterol or diabetes. Testosterone levels vary depending upon time of day, highest in morning & lowest in afternoon/evening. Normal reference range depends upon lab & equipment used as well as test ordered. You can also check levels via saliva although this isn't standardized. ...Read more
Wrong question: Rather than asking how to enhance testosterone levels, ask how to improve your health. Testosterone levels are only one facet of your health, and not necessarily indicative of good or bad, so ignore the hype & commercials. Focus on healthy nutrition & regular exercise. Shedding belly fat will reduce conversion of T into estrogen (female hormone). If all else fails, ask family doc to check level. ...Read more

Go see your doctor!: Before lowering your t level, tell you doc why you want it lower. S/he can offer you several different options although neither lower t directly. Instead, birth control pills raise sex hormone binding globulin which lowers free t while spironolactone acts as an anti-androgen. So rather than focus on lowering t, focus on desired outcome. Hope that makes sense. ...Read more
