The Mineral Edge: Enhancing Men's Health at Every Age

Men are at a higher risk for most mineral deficiencies than women, partly because our bodies use more minerals on a daily basis. [*] More than 90% of American men have at least one mineral deficiency. [*]

The good news is that correcting mineral deficiencies is a simple process—and getting more minerals is an easy way to boost your testosterone production, increase your longevity, speed up muscle recovery, and more. 

Here’s a look at why minerals matter for men’s health, and how to increase your mineral intake so you look and feel your best. 

Minerals and Testosterone Production

Minerals play a major role in testosterone production. They’re important for both the synthesis and distribution of testosterone, and research shows that mineral depletion is a driving factor for low testosterone. [*][*]

Here are some specific minerals that are essential for supporting your testosterone levels:

  • Magnesium increases testosterone production and enhances the effectiveness of existing free testosterone. [*] Recent research has found that low magnesium decreases testosterone levels. [*] More than 60% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. [*
  • Boron increases the bioavailability of existing testosterone. [*] A 2011 study found that healthy men who took a boron supplement for a week saw a nearly 40% increase in free testosterone levels. [*]
  • Zinc is an essential cofactor for testosterone production. Even slightly low zinc levels (toward the bottom of the “acceptable range” in standard zinc tests) cause a drop in testosterone in men, [*] while a zinc supplement significantly increases both testosterone production and free testosterone levels. [*][*]
  • Selenium works alongside zinc as a cofactor for testosterone biosynthesis. [*] It’s also essential for sperm synthesis and overall male fertility. [*]

Minerals for Sexual Wellness and Longevity

Blood flow across your body begins to decrease after about age 35. For men, this translates to two things: decreased erection quality [*] and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. [*]

Decreased blood flow causes an increase in blood pressure, which in turn increases chances of a stroke and stresses your heart. [*] As you age, it’s important to keep certain mineral levels high, for both your sex life and your overall health. 

Several minerals are involved in blood flow. You need balanced levels of magnesium, sodium, calcium, and potassium to stabilize blood pressure and encourage blood flow throughout your body. [*]

The problem is that there’s a good chance you don’t get enough of these minerals.

  • 97% of Americans are deficient in potassium. [*]
  • 60% have low magnesium levels, with about 45% of people in the clinically deficient range. [*]
  • 65% are low in calcium. [*]

These mineral shortages may not feel like much when you’re young, but as you enter your thirties they can start to cause problems with blood flow, translating to both decreased erection quality [*] and increased heart disease risk. [*]

Support Your Testosterone and Longevity with Minerals

Every single cell in your body relies on minerals to function. If you want to support your body’s natural testosterone production, keep blood flow strong, and live a long, thriving life for decades to come, it’s important that you give your body the raw materials it needs to run properly. 

That’s why we’ve created the Men’s Complete Mineral Support Kit. It has everything you need to support optimal hormone production and balance your mineral stores, so you feel good every day. 

The Men’s Kit includes:

Micro-BOOST: a liquid supplement that contains every essential mineral your body needs, in the right ratios, with close to 100% bioavailability. Just take a shot of it every morning to replenish your mineral stores (don’t worry; it tastes like water).
Electrolyze:the other half of the mineral support quotient, contains flavonoids that form complexes with minerals, increasing absorption and helping deliver them to your cells within minutes.

Electro-BOOST: A capsule version of the two above supplements that you can take while you’re traveling, when you’re drinking alcohol, on nights when you need a little extra energy, or any other time you could use a boost.

Insta-Lytes: A misting spray that absorbs through your skin and delivers electrolytes directly to your muscles. This stuff is great for stopping muscle cramps and helping muscles recover faster—and because it’s a spray, you can use it to spot-treat whatever muscles are sore or cramping. Just spray and rub it in. Your muscles will relax within minutes. 

Minerals are a simple (and often overlooked!) part of men’s wellness. Most of us don’t get enough of them, and replenishing them can make a huge difference in how you feel. If you want to support your natural testosterone production and increase your longevity, give our Men’s Mineral Kit a try. You’ll notice the difference within a few days.
