Studies have shown that a man’s testosterone levels peak during adolescence and early adulthood, and begin to decline at the rate of about 1 percent a year beginning at the age of 30.
So how can you combat this issue?
Burly Art of Manliness host Brett McKay and his sexy mustache may have the answer.
“Since ancient times, humans have bathed in cold water for health benefits,” he explains in a new video.
According to McKay, cold showers can help “make your manly mane look shinier and your skin look healthier.”
They can also improve sperm count.
“Cold showers may be good for your little swimmers,” McKay says. “You see, your testes aren’t meant to get too hot. That’s why they hang outside your body. Sperm counts decrease when the temperature of a man’s body increases. ”
Good to know.
But it turns out, that’s not all cold showers are good for. Studies have also shown that they can help boost testosterone.
“Want to put more hair on your chest? A cold shower may help,” McKay says. “Cold water showers increase testosterone production in men. Increased testosterone not only increases a man’s libido … but also increases a man’s overall strength and energy level.”
