What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a sex hormone released by the testes in men and the ovaries in women. Think of it as a messenger that flows in the bloodstream daily directing the body and the cells it acts on to perform certain key functions.
As men age, testosterone levels naturally decrease.
You may ask … why is it this important to me?
Hormone imbalance or suboptimal levels of testosterone can impact your quality of life.
Often the signs and symptoms are quite subtle…until they aren’t.
Testosterone Imbalance in Men Will Impact:
- Sex drive/libido
- Erectile function
- Muscle strength
- Abdominal weight gain
- Mental Focus
Healthy Testostosterone Levels Play a Crucial Role in the Overall Health of Men
Testosterone in the average male peaks in early adulthood (late 20’s), but starting as early as 40, and in some men earlier, levels can drop by as much as 1% every year.
This small, gradual decrease over time will lead to myriad health issues such as:
- Brain fog
- Sexual/erectile dysfunction
- Abdominal weight gain
- High cholesterol
All of these symptoms can make it hard for you to manage challenges and suck the joy out of your daily life. These conditions and symptoms are often overlooked, or treated with unnecessary medications or supplements.
This will only mask the root cause, which is likely suboptimal or low testosterone.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, some simple lab work could easily show if your testosterone levels are low or suboptimal for you.
Benefits of Supplementing with Testosterone
- Better sleep
- Better mood
- More libido, better sexual performance
- Improved muscle mass/strength
- Improved blood sugar and less risk of Type II diabetes
- Lower risk of heart disease.
Women Need Testosterone Too
In fact, did you know that a woman will make more testosterone than any other sex hormone in her lifetime?
As she enters her 30’s and 40’s, her levels can fall. This leads to many of the same symptoms as men, including:
- weight gain
- mood swings
- especially low sexual desire
At Thrive Hormonal Health and Wellness, we are experts at assessing levels and we never use synthetic hormones.
Synthetics won’t unlock the key to all the benefits that natural bio-identical testosterone does.
