One viewer asked why his energy levels have been lower than normal recently... His doctor said his testosterone levels were low. He asked Dr. Asa what to do. Dr. Asa says one way to support healthy Testosterone levels is through weight training 30 minutes a day 3-5 days a week. He recommends you keep healthy fats to 25 percent of the diet because testosterone is made from fat! He says you can look into supplements like maca root, tribulus , and zinc and discuss it with your doctor. He also recommends you get seven to eight hours of sleep a night. And he says you can consider Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) after you have worked with your doctor on more natural ways. He explains more about HRT tomorrow on Good Day Alabama.

MAX LUCADO'S 40 DAYS OF PRAYER - Max Lucado has sold 82 million books, and is considered one of America's most well-known pastors… His newest book is called "Grace." Since Max Lucado's first book was published in 1985, his words have become a steady source of encouragement for millions of readers. Max Lucado's distinctive message of grace has translated into more than 100 million products in 41 languages, including more than 82 million books sold to date. Just about one in ten Americans have read at least one Lucado book. Having served the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, since 1988, Lucado continues preach in that pulpit - even as he has become the most widely read Christian author in the US. Reader's Digest dubbed him "America's Best Preacher," and this preacher's books have appeared on every major national bestseller list including Publishers Weekly, USA Today, and The New York Times. Sixteen of his titles have sold more than one million copies each. For more than 20 years, Max has partnered with World Vision, the largest Christian relief organization in the world, which provides poverty-stricken communities worldwide with the physical resources that children and families need to survive. In addition to contributing profits from books sales, Max has challenged his readers to put their faith into action through World Vision sponsorship. More than 23,000 children have been sponsored as a result of these efforts in the past two years. Now Max calls on the nation to spend 40 days in prayer before the presidential election. He says we should rise above the negative ads and dirty politics of Election season. He wants everyone to begin on September 28 and prayer for our country, our leaders, and our future presidents until election day - November 6th. He says pray a simple prayer--think "USA": Pray for God to Unite us, Strengthen us, Appoint and anoint the next president. For more information, visit http://election.maxlucado.com/.
