Men may spend 1/3 of their lives hormone insufficient or deficient!

Hormonal imbalance isn’t only a female affliction; male hormone imbalance is lesser talked about, but can be responsible for a whole range of health issues that can and need to be addressed.

Most men associate testosterone with health, strength, and vitality. Testosterone production starts during puberty and then declines at a rate of about 1-2% after the age of 30.

Many of the physical changes associated with ageing in men can be at least partially attributed to a decline in testosterone levels and is often referred to as  andropause, the 'male menopause'. However, many younger men may also suffer from symptoms of low testosterone, especially if they are very stressed, not sleeping well, or have a nutrient-poor diet.








Protecting & prioritising sleep is crucial. Sleep loss in men increases the stress hormone cortisol and lowers testosterone levels. One study showed that losing 4 hours of sleep over a 4 day period is associated with Insulin Resistance, leading to pre-diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.

How to improve your sleep:

Try to avoid blue/white light 1-2 hours before bed – if this is not realistic then invest in a pair of blue light-blocking glasses

Avoid caffeinated drinks after 2pm.

Our natural supplements, Saffrosun Calm and Marine Magnesium can aid restful sleep. 





Imbalances in stress hormones can cause fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, insomnia, headaches, brain fog, digestive issues, a weakened immune system, prediabetes, and more.

Cortisol is the main stress hormone. It helps the body to respond to stress and affects almost every organ in the body. When cortisol levels rise, all of the body’s energy goes into handling the stressor instead of regulating bodily functions such as the immune and digestive system. Stress is a lifetime issue, so it’s important to find ways to manage our stress response and become more resilient.

How can you lower your stress hormones?

Reduce your caffeine intake (2 cups of tea/coffee, preferably before 2pm)

Get adequate sleep

Regular exercise

Indulge in hobbies such as playing an instrument, listening to music, drawing, crafting, gardening

Saffrosun Calm will help regulate the nervous system, manage stress levels, and support restful sleep.


It is important to get enough zinc as this mineral is crucial for the body to make testosterone.

Zinc-rich foods include meat, shellfish, dairy such as cheese, nuts, mushrooms (shiitake and oyster) and fortified cereal products.

Men need around 9.5mg of zinc per day and this needs replenishing daily as the body cannot store zinc.

You can find a natural, vegan source of zinc in our supplement, Immune Hero.




Adopt a Mediterranean-style diet, enjoying a wide variety of coloured veg to improve your gut terrain, together with adequate protein intake and intermittent fasting.

Metabolic Gold will support healthy fat & sugar metabolism and control weight gain. All of these factors can impact testosterone levels.



Hormone levels are linked to changes in the gut microbiome. The greater the microbiome diversity, the higher testosterone levels. 

Packed with a powerful blend of 21 probiotics and organic prebiotics, Gut Love contains over 19 billion friendly bacteria and has been formulated to restore and diversify your gut microbiome.



Hormone levels can vary among individuals and can change over a man’s lifespan. Hormonal imbalances can lead to various health issues, so it’s essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle and consult a healthcare practitioner if you suspect any hormonal problems.
