Testosterone is an especially important male androgen; low deficiencies of testosterone are a common feature observed in aging males. Testosterone has several functions that include spermatogenesis, development of reproductive organs and morphological development. Its function also helps in expressing of the conspicuous ornaments and also sexual behaviors. Individuals who have high testosterone have a high immune system, and that is why they can fight many parasitic infections; this implies that they could afford to fight sexual signaling. Oxidation stress is the lack of balance between antioxidant defenses and the production of oxygen in the red blood cells. Reactive oxygen is usually very reactive by-product of the red blood cells and it mainly damages the principle of biomolecules.
Since testosterone in the body usually enhances the rate of metabolism, one should expect that high level of testosterone, which is necessary for the sexual organs, might change the balance between reactive oxygen and the antioxidant’s defense. When there is low testosterone in the body, then it means that the rate of metabolism in the body is low and thus increases the oxidation stress. The testicles are the major organ in men and if it receives low blood flow, and thus a lower supply of oxygen and nutrients, the result is atrophied testicles that can’t produce sperm. Leydig cells are responsible for the production of testosterone in testicles and it will be affected if there is no costs flow of oxygen.
Causes of high oxidation stress
Increase temperature in the scrotum
The testicles are outside the human male body inside the scrotum so that it helps in maintaining the temperature. The testicles should have a low temperature of about 2 degrees Celsius. Sperm is very sensitive to high temperatures, including the normal body temperature. That is why doctors advise men with less sperm to wear loose clothing so when there is a high temperature in the testicles, the performance of Leydig cells will be low and the production of testosterone will go down, leading to high oxidation stress. This will cause infertility when the sperms continue to overheat.
Inadequate oxygenation of tissues in the body
Oxidation is where the body is in a state of little oxygen. When less oxygen reaches all the tissues—especially the testicles—the metabolic rate of the body will be low. The lesser the supply of oxygen in the tissues mainly affects the sex organs. The low metabolic rate will lead to low production of restoration, thus leading to high oxidation stress.
Aging men and women
There are many symptoms of the low deficiency in aging men including the low mass of strength and muscle, decreased libido, impaired cognition, mood disorders, decreased ratio of the adipose tissue and body mass and decreased hematocrit. Many results show that oxidation stress is higher in women than in men because women have a low level of testosterone. The results further indicated that both males and females who have inflammation, cognitive dysfunction and inflammation had a high level of oxidative stress. When men were further divided into two groups with high or low oxidation stress, it was indicated that it had severe impacts on inflation, depression and cognitive dysfunction, which was, in turn, dependent on the oxidative stress level and ethnicity. This factor also depends on the environmental factors because, in some cases of low oxidative stress group, men with low testing levels had more inflammation, while the other group of men with a low degree of testosterone had more levels of depression. No testosterone was indicated in women because of the extremely low level of testosterone.
Oxidative stress has a great impact on male organs that anything less. There are ways in which you can fix the problems associated with oxidative stress such as low testosterone, high blood pressure and sometimes prostate problems. There is a solution normally referred to as bag breathing. This is where you breathe in and out of a paper bag; this will raise the level of carbon dioxide in the bag and increases the level of oxygen in the body. Two or more instances of bag breathing in a day can cause a positive effect on the body. This solution is the best way to reverse oxidation stress in male organs without medical attention. If one tries to reverse the level of oxidation stress, the level of restore will increase, and the level of estrogen will reduce, thus one will have an easier time building muscles and losing weight through exercise.
