This One is for the Guys, Sorry Ladies!
You DON’T have to suffer from living with low libido. Maybe you’ve tried everything from little blue pills to magic potions, and special concoctions? These things can only slap a band-aide on the issue, we want to help you get to the root cause. The list of causes may surprise you. Make today your first step in taking care of you AND your little friend:)…simmer down, I’m talking about the inevitably magnificent male ego!
Men Aren’t From Mars
First let’s understand the male ego, which started way back with the caveman and although a lot has changed in the way of men and our world, much has stayed exactly the same. Most men are born with an innate need to go out and hunt, gather, provide, earn respect, feel needed and have intimacy. In a recent poll found in , “Love and Respect,” by Emerson Eggerichs, men were asked if they would rather be loved or respected and 85% of the men said, respected. So what happens when a man doesn’t feel like his life provides him with these particular innate needs?
- Hormonal Imbalance
- Lack of self-worth
- No Energy
Women Aren’t From Venus
Let’s take a quick look at the ladies, just so we’re fair. Who knows, you just might learn something about the illusive opposite sex. Most women are born with the innate need to nurture, prepare, nest, love and be loved, accomplish, support and to have intimacy. A-HA! There is one major thing in common, INTIMACY. Women want to be touched lovingly, kissed passionately and feel cherished when it comes to intimacy. As a result from feeling this way, a woman will feel safe to open herself up more and more to her sexual partner, this is when a man will begin to feel uplifted because she makes him feel needed and wanted. Most libidos have a hard time suffering under these conditions. Why? Because whether you’re male or female, when your emotional needs are being met, everything else just seems to fall into place.
Lost In Emotion
Come on guys, admit it, you can be emotional too, and most of the time, women love seeing that side of a man. Vulnerability can be extremely sexy, but overly needy or emotional …yea, not so sexy. Unfortunately, being overly caught up in your feels might be a sign of a hormonal imbalance and could most definitely be a huge reason for lacking in libido. Just like women go and get their yearly exam to ensure all things hormonal are as they should be, men should really be doing the same. So why aren’t they? We have no idea and we’re doing something about it.
Signs of Male Hormone Imbalance
- gynecomastia, or the development of breast tissue.

The most common hormonal issue in adult males is low testosterone. The symptoms can be detrimental not only to the male ego, but it can seriously effect the intimacy in any relationship. No matter what, you DO NOT have to suffer from Low-T. It is extremely easy to find out what your level of testosterone is and within days, start fixing the problem for good.

If your testosterone is low, it’s pretty obvious, and the signs can be shocking. Luckily it’s an easy fix that too many men don’t take advantage of. Imagine feeling like your old (not so old) self again! Too many relationships struggle due to low testosterone when they shouldn’t. If your back hurts, you take a Tylenol, so if your libido has taken a downward turn, you should turn up the testosterone STAT!
What if Low-T isn’t the Problem?
If your testosterone ends up within the normal range, it’s not recommended to go ahead an try it. Symptoms of high testosterone can have just as many adverse affects as low. It’s important to take a look at your daily quality of life. Are you genuinely happy at work, and at home? Do you feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of a work week? How is your marriage? Is there healthy communication between you and your significant other? We’re not going to launch an all out session of relationship counseling, but we can at least get you thinking correctly.
So Now What?
Relationships take a huge toll on our emotional state, if our endorphins, oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin aren’t necessarily charging like they once did, maybe you could use a boost. Certain supplements and peptides have been shown to increase production of these happy hormones significantly. Endorphins are said to be the hormones of (no pain) while serotonin is known as the happy hormone. Oxytocin and dopamine are all about pleasure. Our bodies naturally produce them, but we can also stop producing them as we age, hence the dreaded Mid-Life Crisis.
Come On Get Happy!
The benefits of the happy hormones known as serotonin, oxytocin, dopamine and endorphins…
- Increased Mood
- Better Sleep
- Positive sense of well-being
- Increases Immune Cells
- Decreases Stress
- Enhances Intimacy
At Elite Health Online, we have all of the supplements you might need in order to help increase any or all of these happy hormones.
- Oxytocin- Truly known as the Love hormone, oxytocin is released in the body during sex, eating, exercising or laughing. The body releases a huge burst of oxytocin as a result of an orgasm. Low levels of Oxytocin have been linked to Autism, Asperger syndrome and Autistic spectrum disorders.
- Serotonin- This happy hormone is also released when we are doing anything that brings us a feeling of joy or contentment. Exercise has been found to be the number one contributor to increased serotonin levels.
- Dopamine- When this hormone is released into the body, it creates feelings of pleasure and reward.
- Endorphins- With it’s fitting name, this hormone is linked to the drug known as morphine (the pain reliever). Endorphins are connected to the feeling of no pain during high anaerobic exercise.

Cheers to self-help!
Tip of the Day:
We live in a world of severe need, no matter where you look. Did you know that giving to others, serving others and going beyond yourself to help a neighbor actually increases all of the happy hormones? Unfortunately, we are all moving so fast throughout our day, we seldom slow down enough to take the time to GIVE. We’re not talking about the holidays either. We’re talking about volunteering at a local food bank or helping an elderly neighbor build a fence. If you love to cook, take a sick friend some homemade soup. When we give, the way we see how it blesses the other person, it automatically causes little bits of happy to flourish all throughout your body. So, wake up tomorrow and if you only change one thing, find someone to give to. Even if it’s paying for the car behind you in the Starbuck’s line.
