As men age their hormone levels change, estrogen rises while DHEA and testosterone decline. It is a gradual process that begins at the age of 30 when they lose about 1% of their testosterone per year. Testosterone affects a man’s appearance, sex drive, sperm production and muscle and bone mass. Doctors at the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic can conduct a blood test and recommend treatment if needed.
The benefits of testosterone therapy include:
- Increases sex drive and improves sexual function
Sexual dysfunction including low sexual arousal and impotence are signs of low testosterone. Increasing your sexual drive and sexual stamina are the most noticeable benefits of high testosterone.
- Improves mood and cognitive function
Studies have shown testosterone can help fight depression, improve concentration and memory and increase your overall sense of well-being.
- Decreases body fat
Low testosterone levels mean increased levels of estrogen; as estrogen increases your body begins storing more fat, especially in the abdomen. Testosterone helps burn fat so high levels of testosterone mean lower estrogen levels and increased fat burning. Testosterone is also responsible for building muscle. Increased muscle mass and decreased fat means a leaner, more defined body.
- Gives you energy
Increased levels of testosterone decrease fatigue and makes you more energetic.
- Increases bone density and reduced risk of fracture
An optimal level of testosterone is required to maintain bone mass and people with low levels of testosterone suffer from low bone density or osteoporosis. Research shows testosterone treatment increases bone density and decreases the risk of bone fractures.
- Improves sleep quality
Studies show optimal levels of testosterone improve sleep duration and sleep quality.
- Improves heart health
Research shows low testosterone is linked to an increase in several cardiovascular risk factors. Testosterone strengthens the heart muscle, reduces cholesterol, helps with red blood cell production and improves blood flow.
The anti-aging experts at the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic know that low levels of testosterone are strongly associated with many age-related disorders including: metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
