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.
