In brief: None

There are no "good" natural substitutes for testosterone - virtually all otc preps are taken orally and increase one's risk of peliosis hepatis/hepatitis/liver cancer, in addition to further suppressing one's native testosterone production.
You should be seen by a urologist or endocrinologist. (very common - occurs in 1/4 men in our lifetimes...).

Review my recent posts re "dietary supplements" along w/usa today's investigative series into contamination of several popular supplements resulting in liver failure ; death. How do you know you're low? If via testing by your family doc, s/he can offer you treatment options. T replacement ; supplementation is not a do-it-yourself project.
