During their 40s and 50s, men’s bodies produce testosterone at declining rates. They begin to lose muscle mass and become more prone to weight gain. Their risk for heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes increases. On average men develop heart disease around 10 years earlier than women. Around 1 in 4 male deaths are caused by heart disease.
Men’s bodies never completely stop producing testosterone however, testosterone production may decrease with age. When men reach their 60s and 70s, they begin to experience hair loss and enlarging prostates. As men age, they become less active and need fewer calories. Their bodies don’t absorb nutrients at the same rate as they age. It’s important they pay attention to what foods they are consuming.
