Testosterone and men's health - with Ali Gilbert

This week on the podcast I speak to men’s health expert Ali Gilbert on … mens health! Ali and I talk about the normalisation of the ‘dad bod’ and implications this has on the optimal health and wellbeing of men. We discuss myths around testosterone supplementation, when it could be beneficial for men, and the consequences of low testosterone  (and what is considered normal on lab tests which is actually functionally low).

We talk about what are the main issues that are driving down mens testosterone levels, common signs that this might be the case and practical things men can focus on to help optimise and change their energy. Finally, Ali talks about her virtual summit, the Silverback Summit, that is taking place in early May, it is free to register, which has a range of experts in the field that discuss all things mens health.
