In brief: Underlying causes

It depends on the cause.
Low testosterone due to testicular damage or factors like pituitary tumors require replacement. Pharmaceutical testosterone is more similar to human testosterone than "natural supplements" (usually testosterone precursors). If testosterone is low due to factors such as obesity, diabetes, and/or obstructive sleep apnea -- try treating the underlying cause.
