    Do any of you have a recommendation for a supplement for a 40 something guy? My energy level has gone down and I’m noticing some libido deterioration. Hopefully I can find a simple and affordable solution. Thanks.

    Simple & affordable? What is your diet like? The best supplement is a multi-vitamin followed along with watching what you eat & regular exercise.
    After 40, you really need to cut back on your sugar intake. Diabetes is no joke and many of my friends had to readjust their diet & lifestyle to reflect that.

    I eat balanced meals and am not overweight. I drink beer and water instead of soda. Just wondering if there is any truth to some of these pills on the market to help with diminishing energy and sex drive.

    Have you had a physical lately? You really need to have your blood chemistry checked. When I had my done, I was seriously low in Vitamin D. That deficiency was making me easily fatigued all the time.

    As for the OTC stuff regarding energy and low libido. I’d talk to your Dr first. Most of that stuff isn’t really accurate or verifiable in their claims.

    Have you tried any of the natural cures for low energy and diminished libido? The one that seems most effective is a girl in her 20s.

    I don't have any advice for easy fixes but I will say most of us go through the same thing and problems can sneak up on you. On the balanced diet you might want to tighten the standards if you can. If there is any thing you eat that is not healthy either cut down in a big way or eliminate it. Your days of eating like a teenager are over. :frown:
    It is not an easy adjustment but the people who seem to do the best as they get older eat right and exercise. I had bad habits and got out of shape and it is not easy getting back into shape. I have been trying to change my ways and when I follow a healthy keto diet I see some progress. YMMV

    I’m only as old as the girl I ... uh... hug.

    Seriously, though, if you are bothered, see a doctor for a complete work over. You’re probably fine, but it’s better to check and nip anything wrong in the bud.

    A 20 year old girl is great. Until she's finished with you. Then you will have no energy.

    I went to Doctor and now get testosterone injections weekly. I also cut my carb intake by 75%. I lost 15 lbs and feel better.

    Yeah, it's called testosterone. It costs $80 for a 10 week supply.

    In all seriousness, diet & exercise. Less sugar. Fewer carbs. Vitamins as needed (maybe B or D) deficiency. Get testosterone checked. It's likely diet & exercise.

    But be mindful, especially with libido. If you are in your 40s...you are not 25 anymore. There is a difference.

    My boss at work takes T-male all the time. He swears by it. A few years ago I gave it a shot. It's very expensive and does nothing. Placebo effect if you ask me.
    To the OP:
    What BlueKat said is the best advice you'll get. And it's free.

    Start eating Jell-O now! The sooner you get used to it, the less trouble you'll be at the "home."
