How does magnesium impact testosterone?
Magnesium is necessary for the normal functioning of several bodily processes. One study that looked at the effects of magnesium supplementation in both sedentary and athletic individuals found that testosterone levels increased after 4 weeks. Another study found that magnesium levels in men ages 65 and older are closely associated with testosterone levels. However, magnesium has not been evaluated by the FDA as a treatment for low testosterone and further studies need to be done to better understand the effects and optimal dosing of magnesium.
