Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. It is what makes a man, a man. It helps males grow larger muscles, have facial and body hair and develop deep voices. Testosterone also fuels the libido, helps to produce sperm and contributes to functional erections.
Testosterone also directly affects bone density, metabolism of salts, maintains fluid balance, regulates red blood cells, cholesterol profiles and manages different functions of the brain including energy levels, moods and cognitive functions. It is what keeps you feeling young and vital.
Testosterone is classified a steroid hormone in the Androgen group. The decline of testosterone is known as Andropause, sometimes referred to as the male version of Menopause.
Beginning at 30, a man’s body makes less and less testosterone and around 40-55 the levels drop dramatically.
The most common complaint is low sexual desire or libido and any man that has erectile dysfunction should get his testosterone checked. The decline in testosterone can also make it more difficult to conceive a child.
Men may also start to have signs and symptoms of lower testosterone levels like lower energy, decreased muscle mass and bone density, and anemia. Low testosterone levels have also been associated with increased cardiovascular risk, mortality and increases in bad cholesterol.
Conventional male hormonal treatments are administered by injections or rubbing gels in or onto your body. Commonly, these treatments use synthetic hormones that are not real hormones, but rather imperfect mimics of natural hormones. There can be many side effects from using these products and they can end up creating as many symptoms as they relieve. The one size fits all solution from big harmaceutical companies do not properly adjust the ratios of hormones nor provide a natural delivery method into the body.
Millions of men are suffering and trying pharmaceutical drugs to regain their sex drive and clear up their brain fog without realizing that bio-identical hormones are even an option. Bio-identical hormones have been studied extensively and safely used since 1935, without the negative side effects that synthetics have been known to produce.
