Testosterone boosters

They’re advertised as a quick, easy way for men to increase their testosterone level but, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Dr. Daniel Shoskes a urologist at Cleveland Clinic said, "There really is no such thing as an over-the-counter “testosterone booster.”

Testosterone boosters, or supplements, are sold with the intention of raising someone’s testosterone naturally. But he said, the only person who should be administering any type of testosterone replacement is a urologist.

"One of the reasons testosterone boosters are not safe is because many are not regulated by the food and drug administration." He explained.

The only men who should consider testosterone replacement are those with symptoms but even if your testosterone level is low, you may not be a candidate for therapy. It’s difficult to diagnose low testosterone because there is not a single test that will do so.

He said "you’re better off keeping your weight down and exercising to keep your testosterone level up, naturally."
