Do Testosterone Boosters Increase Libido?

We’ve all seen the commercials. Everything wrong in our lives is probably because we’re old and have low-T, right? And the solution is a T-Booster. It’ll help us look better, feel better, perform better in bed, and even fix our lawn mower.

All jokes aside, like a lot of claims on television and the internet, there's some truth to the claims. In this article, I’ll cover some of the claims that T-Boosters can increase libido. In addition, we’ll cover some of the other factors that may be lowering your libido–and what you can do about it.

What Causes Low Libido?

Men like to be the strong one, and we like to analogize ourselves to strong things: big engines, mighty oaks, hard granite. Despite what we’d like, though, we’re not simple machines, and there’s often more complicated answers than we thought there’d be.

In the case of libido, there are a number of factors we may not have considered, outside of low testosterone. (We’ll cover that a little later on.) For now, it’s important to take stock of what may be causing low libido so you can address it best.


If you have any signs of anxiety, depression, or stress, it’s important to discuss these with your healthcare provider. It may not seem related–after all, shouldn’t our libido help us out with those things? But the fact is that stress and depression can preoccupy parts of our brain, and hormonally, can decrease testosterone no matter what supplements we take.

Additionally, if you are aware of these underlying conditions, and are taking medications for them, then those very medications may be responsible for your lack of libido. If you have noticed a correlation between taking medications and loss of drive, consult your doctor.

High Blood Pressure 

Men with hypertension, high blood pressure, or any circulatory issues may have trouble becoming aroused, staying aroused, or performing in the bedroom. The good news with these issues is that it is mechanical–if you don’t have enough or steady blood flow, you can’t perform. The bad news is that these may be indicators of other health issues like heart disease. In these cases, trying to circumvent the health issue and only increase libido could put you at greater heatlh risk.


Similarly to the high blood pressure discussed above, when we’re obese, our bodies are literally too preoccupied to worry about sex drive. Our bodily functions and hormones are tied up in other functions, and ignoring them can be a big issue.


Doctors are becoming more and more insistent that their patients have frank and open conversations about their relationship status. In fact, some urologists won’t even consider medication or other treatments for libido until the man has either had some kind of therapy or other open conversation with their partner. These conversations can range in topic, from intimacy, to arousals, to compatibility.


It may come a shock to many a college student, but in men, alcohol is a notorious libido killer. This may make more sense if we look at alcohol consumption over a long period of time. After all, it isn’t as if you lose your sex drive as soon as you have a beer. Rather, the effects are most noticeable after regular drinking, over weeks and months. The simple solution for many is to cut down on alcohol. 

If this problem is more than you can overcome on your own, you’re not alone. Reach out to an addiction or recovery group or program for help.

How T-Boosters Can Help

T-Boosters can, in and of themselves, increase your libido. The process is fairly simple–when our testosterone increases, it sends signals to all sorts of bodily functions, like increasing muscle growth, stimulating the burning of body fat, and yes, increasing sex drive.

But you may have noticed that we didn’t mention T-Boosters, at all. Why is that? The truth is, most men who suffer from decreased libido also have one of those other issues. Addressing our testosterone without also addressing our alcohol, blood pressure, or relationship status could hide very important health factors that could become dangerous.

The good news is, once we’re aware of the issues, T-Boosters can definitely help us tackle them. That’s because T-Boosters have been seen to help with a number of health outcomes when the person taking them takes certain steps. Once you’re aware of what other factors may be keeping your drive low, and you start taking a T-Booster, you can work on those other health factors with your T-Booster’s help.


Our website is about health and bringing people together. It can be hard sometimes to discuss things like lowered libido, but if we want the right answers, we have to have these conversations. For many men, the right answer is a combination approach that involves addressing low T, but also addressing our blood pressure, obesity, or depression. The good news is, many of the best T-Boosters come with ingredients that can help us tackle exactly those things.
