Testosterone is a primary male hormone, essential for several body functions. As men age, testosterone levels decline, triggering uncomfortable symptoms such as hair loss, weight gain, insomnia, and low libido. Testosterone therapy can help boost bass levels, promoting hormonal balance and better overall health and wellness.
What Is Testosterone Therapy?
Men over age 30 usually start noticing a decline in their testosterone levels. They may experience reduced muscle mass, mood swings, or a decrease in sex drive. If left untreated, low testosterone can result in erectile dysfunction, thyroid conditions, or cancer.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a form of testosterone therapy that mimics the body’s natural hormones. This option is derived from plants and is safely and effectively absorbed by the body to restore hormonal balance and reduce unwanted symptoms of aging.
Why Consider Testosterone Therapy?
Many men wonder if testosterone therapy is necessary or how it can benefit their health. Here are four reasons to consider testosterone therapy for better health and wellness.
1. Increases Muscle Mass
Low testosterone levels can lead to reduced muscle mass in men. Having the right balance of lean muscle mass can boost energy levels and balance metabolism. Some studies show testosterone therapy can improve muscle mass and strength, especially when paired with strength training. Whether you’re an athlete or want to improve your overall health, boosting testosterone levels can help.
2. Enhanced Mental Clarity and Function
If you’ve experienced slow cognitive function or daily brain fog, even after a restful sleep, you may have low testosterone levels. Low levels can affect mental clarity, making simple decisions difficult. Research shows testosterone therapy can improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of neurological conditions like dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
3. Balanced Emotions and Mood
Since hormonal balance is essential for optimal body functions, a decline in one hormone can trigger unwanted symptoms and decrease quality of life. Men can suffer from mood swings and fatigue when testosterone levels are too low. They may feel they need antidepressants to balance their mood swings. However, mental health concerns may not be the root cause. Seeking hormonal therapy can help restore lost levels and promote balance for health and wellness and a better outlook on life.
4. Improve Sexual Health
Men over age thirty can begin experiencing a low libido as hormone levels shift and testosterone declines. Medications, stress, or other underlying medical conditions can also cause a decline in testosterone levels.
Higher levels can increase sexual desire and improve sexual health, preventing common issues like erectile dysfunction, heart disease, or prostate cancer. Testosterone therapy can improve overall sexual health and boost libido in men.
