Testosterone and Natural Decline
You don't have to look far on the internet to find infographics showing catastrophic aged related testosterone loss. Normally from companies selling testosterone boosting supplements or TRT.
And if you were to believe some of them then you have literally no testosterone left at all by the age of 80.
It is not as bad as they make out. Research into age related decline in healthy men shows that levels of testosterone tend to drop off around the age of 40 at a rate of 1% a year. For Joe Average, he will still have 60% of his youthful testosterone levels if he reaches the age of 80.
