Why Men Need Testosterone Throughout Life

Why Men Need Testosterone Throughout Life

Made in the testes and the adrenal glands testosterone (T) is the major gonadal hormone in men. However, by the age of 30 the body's testosterone production is already on the decline and this decrease negatively affects the health, fitness, and lifestyle of men.

Testosterone is very important to the growth and repair of muscles and certain organs. With the decrease of T comes a decrease in lean muscle and that usually means an increase in body fat.

Restoring testosterone to a more healthy level increases muscle and decreases fat, contributes to strength and stamina and enhances libido in both men and women. The male urinary and reproductive systems are also promoted by T.

Testosterone helps to protect the heart muscle and cardiovascular system by helping to keep cholesterol and blood pressure balanced. It also affects neurological function and mood and it fuels feelings of confidence, optimism, motivation, and aggressiveness.

It can also provide a protective effect to the joints against the development of arthritis and help to sustain bone density.

In men the progressive decrease of testosterone with age is called andropause.

The modern medicine community has known for years about the terrible symptoms that women approaching menopause can suffer with.

Unfortunately, back then the accepted symptoms were hot flashes, dry mucus membranes, and decreased libido.

Today practitioners in integrated, functional, and anti-aging medicine know that the effects of low estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone go far beyond hot flashes, dry membranes, and reduced libido.

The Importance of Healthy Adrenal Glands

The Importance of Healthy Adrenal Glands

The adrenals are two small glands with each located just above a kidney. They are responsible for important life sustaining processes such as protecting us from stress, keeping salt and water balanced in the body, keeping blood pressure normal, and regulating blood glucose. The adrenals also assist in the production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. As age progresses and the ovaries and testes decrease their release of these hormones the adrenal glands become more responsible for their release.

Our energy, endurance, ability to fight infection, ability to heal and rejuvenate, and in fact our very lives depend upon the proper functioning of our adrenal glands.

The Importance of DNA Repair

The Importance of DNA Repair

DNA is the blueprint that contains the instructions on how to build each individual cell that makes up the human body. When we are young the DNA blueprint is usually not damaged and so the cells that are made using that blueprint are perfectly healthy cells.

Unfortunately, as we age and we are exposed to more and more toxins our DNA blueprint can become damaged. Then, when the body makes new cells using the damaged blueprint those new cells won't be perfect cells as they were before.

Getting older means wearing out. But it's not just muscles, joints and organs that suffer. The older we get, the more damage we do to our own individual blueprint for life, our DNA, and the consequences of a lifetime's DNA damage could be a range of degenerative diseases and cancers. But there is something we can do about it. We can use supplements that aid the body in repairing the DNA structure.
