The key to masculinity and vitality is the human growth hormone that separates the boys from the men. It plays a vital role in the creation of muscle mass and strong bones. It contributes to deep voice and even sex drive. Low testosterone in men is known as hypogonadism. As a product of a modern world made for convenience the male body does not go through nearly as much rigorous activity. The lack of daily exercise contributes to the decrease in male testosterone. It can hit as early as the mid 20s and steadily decrease each subsequent year.
I live in Australia which has low selenium in it’s soil and i grew up on a farm in a time when imported or all year round fresh fruit and vegetables were rare. This coupled with the fact that we were relatively poor meant both my parents saw fruit as a luxury and vegetables as only those few we could grow in a low water area, so any selenium i might have accessed thru these sources was non existent. As a result I have suffered for years from chronic mental health problems. I have been diagnosed with everything from bipolar disorder to schizoaffective disorder to depression as well as trying to self medicating with various drugs both legal and illegal. There was three children in my family. I am, in my opinion, the only survivor. My brother killed himself at 39 yrs old and my sister has a 25 year chronic drug addiction and very questionable health. I learned about selenium 23 yrs ago and have experienced freedom from mental health problems and the nasty drugs they feed you ever since.
Thank you for your research it proves my subjective experience,
