fight depression

Did you know you can fight depression by supplementing testosterone? In January 2003, a study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry revealed that testosterone replacement therapy can effectively fight depression. These men had been found to have low testosterone levels, aside from depression. But these two health issues have been found to have a common correlation. The research study monitored and analyzed the responses of the participants who took TRT to a series of psychological tests.

What they found was that the subjects experienced higher moods, a reduction in suicidal thoughts and felt less guilt and anxiety. Such results indicate that testosterone hormone can influence both the body and mind. 

Both men and women require testosterone to address different bodily functions. Studies have shown that androgens such as testosterone provide a positive effect on well-being.

Our hormones plays a major role in regulating our emotions. When there is an imbalance or deficiency of a specific hormone, it can cause symptoms of anxiety and depression. Such effect isn’t only limited to a deficiency of testosterone. Studies have also shown that an excess or insufficiency of thyroid hormone could result to depression. Further, it has observed that women’s anxiety is significantly reduced when given bio-identical progesterone cream before sleep.

Are you suffering from depression? Your depression could be due to a hormone deficiency. It is necessary to keep a healthy, balanced hormone level for emotional stability. To add, Hormone Therapeutics offers pharmaceutical nutrients that can help fight depression and anxiety symptoms. Our program concentrates on optimizing brain chemistry, balancing hormone and reducing stress.

The Use of Sleeping Pills to Fight Depression

A number of sleeping pills are benzodiazapines or ‘sedative hypnotic’ drugs that may also be used for the treatment of stress and anxiety. But such drug is linked with a number of risks. Most of these sleeping pills are highly addictive and not advised for long-term use. The side effects include drowsiness, dizziness and impaired coordination. Since they act on the brain chemistry, nervousness, memory impairment, hallucination, confusion and aggressiveness or extreme irritability could also be observed.

testosterone mythsWhen we talk about testosterone myths, this topic has its share of a bad rap as the “aggression” hormone that’s somehow the “root cause” of at least the majority of male-dominated social violence. While the absolutely invaluable evolutionary necessity of testosterone, along with its many evident positive effects, is indeed a primarily male-driven hormone that aff­ects men in many of the ways we’ve previously discussed, it’s completely backwards logic to “blame” testosterone for the complex problem of societal violence (or the lack thereof for any absence of same).

In the US, we have also been raised to view “Steroids” through the lens of sports abuse and cheaters watching East German Olympians in the 80s and 90s, issues with Pro Wrestlers and sad stories from steroid abusers like Lyle Alzado. Steroids have certainly seemed like a very unhealthy lifestyle choice.

Things are diff­erent today as physicians and scientists have a much better understanding of the benefits of living with a fully functioning endocrine system. 100 years ago the average life span was 48 and today it is 78 years. Many areas of the body do not hold up over time as well as others and require assistance like eye glasses, hearing aids or Lipitor. The same is true with balancing and optimizing the endocrine system. We now understand that a properly balanced endocrine system leads to lower incidence of prostate cancer, stroke, heart attack and mortality.

Busted Testosterone Myths

So let’s take a clear-eyed look at a few of the testosterone myths that are at best based on specious reasoning and at worst, they’re almost completely devoid of scientific examination and study:

testosterone-myths-2Testosterone Myths #1: Testosterone Increases Lead to Prostate Cancer

This proverbial “old wives tale” began with a single study all the way back in 1941 that has since been roundly and soundly disproved many times over (multiple studies). We now know that men with normal testosterone levels have a lower incidence of prostate cancer than men with low levels. We also know that men supplemented from low testosterone levels to normal testosterone levels also have lower incidence of prostate cancer. If you are already undergoing treatment for a prostate condition, it’s always best to consult with your physician and inadvisable unless specifically guided to do so.

 

 

testosterone mythsTestosterone Myths #2: Increased Testosterone Leads to Violent Behavior

There is absolutely no empirical scientific evidence whatsoever to suggest that an all-natural increase in your testosterone level will lead to any violent or anti-social behavior. In fact, recent studies have shown that healthy social assimilation in all males is strongly linked to higher levels of testosterone, in comparison with males with lower levels. Of course random acts of violence committed by males addicted to anabolic steroids (commonly referred to as “roid rage”) has contributed to the complete fallacy that a natural increase in testosterone is somehow connected to this unfortunately all too common side-eff­ect of steroid drug abuse. To be perfectly clear- An all-natural increase in testosterone will have no negative e­ffect regarding violent behavior and will almost certainly lead to a much greater possibility of pro-social behavior and positive social success in all males.

 

 

 

testosterone mythsTestosterone Myths #3: Any Testosterone Increase Will Create Personal Social Conflict

Much like the previous example, this myth simply does not stand up under scrutiny. To the contrary, numerous scientific studies have shown that due to the measurable decrease in both concentration and libido associated with low levels of testosterone, men suffering from this condition are much more inclined to become socially frustrated and, as a result, are much more susceptible to bouts of clinical depression and accompanying depressive, anti-social behaviors.

A properly high level of testosterone, on the other hand, leads to much more properly adjusted mood management and an overall more satisfied, successful and social male!

 

testosterone-myths-5Testosterone Myths #4: Testosterone Treatment increases Cardiovascular Risk

A Swedish study tested the hypothesis that serum total testosterone and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) levels predict cardiovascular events in elderly men. The study found that supplementing, and maintaining, testosterone reduces cardiovascular risks when the levels were maintained above 550ng/dl. The study also found negative correlation between testosterone levels are type 2 diabetes risk.

Do you keep noticing commercials about Low Testosterone symptoms, or Low T, and wonder what exactly they are talking about? Are you wondering if you have Low T? We have yet to meet anyone nearing 40, or older, who sees these commercials and can consistently say I never feel like that with the same pep I did when I was younger.

For healthy men, testosterone peaks at age 19 and goes down about 1-2% a year for the rest of your life. We are living 64% longer today than we were just one century ago and different parts of our body age faster than other. An unbalanced or depleted endocrine system has so many men are suffering from the Low Testosterone symptoms. . . but they don’t have to suffer from what so many people just write-off as normal aging.

 

What is Testosterone?

low testosterone symptoms

Testosterone is a naturally occurring and very potent hormone produced in large amounts by all males (and in much smaller amounts in females). Production begins in the womb and then gradually increases for weeks from birth.

Initially, it fortifies the development of male genitalia, then gradually aff­ects every vital physiological system (muscular, circulatory, skeletal, reproductive, etc.)

After reaching physical maturity, testosterone plays a major role in the healthy development of male sexuality. Testosterone levels drastically surge during the onset of puberty. Levels peak at 19, then level o­ and begin to drop by the mid-30s, by about 1% per year.

 

 What are the Low Testosterone Symptoms?

Except in cases of hypogonadism (medically low testosterone) when it occurs much earlier, most men begin to feel many of the symptoms of low testosterone by their 40s. It’s one reason why our physical and mental capabilities begin to diminish as we age, and it may even contribute to the following life and relationship altering conditions of Low T:

testosterone-symptoms1

  • Loss of Muscular Mass and Strength
  • Reduction in Bone Density
  • Loss of Skin Elasticity
  • Hair Loss/Male Pattern
  • Baldness
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of Concentration or Memory
  • Weight Gain
  • Gynecomastia
  • Hot Flashes
  • Lower Sex Drive
  • Urinary Problems
  • Sleep Problems
  • Irritability
  • Night Sweats
  • Hypogonadism
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Thyroid Health

There is a syndrome called Irritable Male Syndrome, or IMS, that’s caused by low testosterone. It is not just having a low libido. This syndrome includes emotional withdrawal, lack of motivation, aggression, personality changes, and anxiety. Irritable Man Syndrome can also present in self-destructive activities including gambling, alcoholism and workaholism.

Sound like you? Low testosterone a­ffects over 13.8 million men in the US. Many of these men are in their 30s and even 20s due to hypogonadism.

Low T effects go beyond sex drive and mood. Testosterone deficiency increases the risk for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and bone fractures. Low testosterone increases mortality risk.

800 men were followed for 50 years and the men with the lowest testosterone levels had a 33% greater chance of death, from all causes, than the group with the highest testosterone levels. Another study showed that men with low testosterone had 88% higher mortality levels than men with normal testosterone.

Wondering About Low T? Here are the Low Testosterone Symptoms You Should Know

testosterone therapyIn a major new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, testosterone therapy was found to improve physical ability and mood as well as sexual function. The study was a collaboration of researchers from 12 medical centers spanning the United States.

Mark E. Molitch, MD, an endocrinologist, was one of the authors of the study. Dr. Molitch is the Martha Leland Sherwin professor in medicine-endocrinology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

“In recent years, talk about low testosterone and its treatments have become part of the public discussion,” explained Molitch. “Yet questions have always lingered about the treatment’s effectiveness and safety. I believe the results of this large, nationwide study will provide doctors and patients answers and guidance they’ve been looking for.”

Link between Testosterone, Mood, Libido and Physical Health

The team’s purpose was to determine the link, if any, between testosterone levels and the mood, libido, and physical ability of men over the age of 65. It is a well-established fact that a man’s testosterone levels and production decrease as he ages. Many men also experience lowered sex drive and energy levels as they become older, tiring and fatiguing more easily. For the first time, low testosterone has been established as the cause of these symptoms.

Testosterone Therapy Study Grant

Previously, the Institute for Men reported that there was insufficient evidence of testosterone therapy’s beneficial effects, if any. A grant from the National Institute on Aging and National Institutes of Health funded the new study to determine low testosterone could be the cause of what many consider the normal effects of aging.

Health Study on Testosterone Therapy

The subjects of the study were 790 men, all of whom were over the age of 65 and tested for low blood testosterone, as well as suffering from decreased sexual desire and physical function. Some participants in the study were given testosterone treatments in the form of a gel to apply directly to the skin. The medication increased the subjects’ testosterone levels to the normal range for men aged 19-40. The treatments and study of their effects lasted for over a year.

The study participants who received the testosterone treatments did not report increased energy, but their mood, libido, and physical function did improve. By measuring the distance walked in six minutes, the researchers were able to determine a small increase in the physical abilities of men in the study. There was also a decrease in symptoms of depression, such as feelings of sadness and listlessness.

“Men in the study experienced an increased sexual desire and small improvements in their mood and physical function,” explained Molitch. “Importantly, there was no evidence of an increase in heart or other cardiovascular issues in those who received testosterone compared to a placebo. And we monitored the men in this study for at least a year after receiving treatment.”

The study is expected to lead to further research in the potential applications of testosterone therapy in treating many of the problems that come with age. By firmly showing the link between low testosterone and decreased sexual activity, mood, and physical capabilities, the door is open to developing treatments for these common ailments.

male depression and testosteroneMale depression is not as well understood as female hormonal depression.  The effect of female sex hormones on our mood and psyche has been well-documented. Phenomena such as post-partum depression and mood swings just prior to menstruation are well-known, and there have been a number of scientific studies confirming them.

Until recently, though, the link between our mood and the male sex hormone testosterone has not been nearly as well understood. A study conducted by researchers at MedUni Vienna and published in Biological Psychiatry offers the first glimpse into how testosterone affects our mood.

Testosterone and Male Depression

In a nutshell, the study concluded that there is a direct link between testosterone levels and feelings of happiness. Testosterone also supports existing antidepressant medications, allowing them to work better.

As they age, men typically become more prone to depression. Conventional wisdom has been that the drop-off in testosterone production is to blame, but the new study is the first to show that testosterone actually increases the number of serotonin transporters in the brain.

How Serotonin levels Contribute to Male Depression

Serotonin is the neurotransmitter, or brain chemical, most responsible for feelings of well-being and happiness. Serotonin transporters are proteins that help regulate the concentration of serotonin in our brains. By increasing their number, the overall serotonin levels in our brains also increase, contributing to our emotional well-being.

Antidepressant drugs bind to these proteins, as well. By increasing production of serotonin transporters, testosterone creates a better environment for these medications, allowing them to more effectively treat male depression.

The MedUni Vienna researchers worked with transsexuals undergoing hormone therapy in the course of their study. Georg Kranz, the study’s primary author, explained the design of the study.

“Transsexuals are people who feel that they are living in the wrong body and who therefore want high doses of opposite gender hormone therapy to adapt their appearance to that of the other gender. Genetic women are given testosterone, while genetic men are given oestradiol and medications to suppress testosterone production.”

Testosterone and Antidepressants

Siegfried Kasper, head of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at MedUni Vienna, elaborated further on their findings and results.

“The study has shown that testosterone increases the potential binding sites for commonly prescribed antidepressants such as SSRIs in the brain and therefore provides major insights into how sex hormones affect the human brain and gender differences in psychiatric illnesses.”

Employing positron emission tomography (PET), the researchers were able to measure serotonin transporter levels in the study participants. Four weeks of testosterone therapy resulted in significantly higher serotonin transporter levels. The study established a firm link between testosterone levels in the blood and serotonin transporter levels in the brain.

The study opens up potential applications for testosterone therapy in treating male depression and other emotional disorders. Testosterone improves our mood both directly and by supporting antidepressant medications, and the reverse is also true. Low levels of testosterone can lead to male depression and feelings of sadness.

 

 

Testosterone Therapy Found to Ease Male Depression

erectile dysfunctionErectile dysfunction is a common problem that affects many men. This being said, it is important to explore its causes and how it can be addressed. Because of testosterone’s prominence in men’s sexual function, it has been explored as a determining factor in erectile dysfunction. The following study describes how erectile dysfunction and low libido may be related to available testosterone in the body.  It also examines how supplementing this testosterone deficiency may provide a better for you.

 Different Types of Testosterone for Erectile Dysfunction   

Many do not know that there are different types of testosterone in the body and that it is important to take note of their individual levels within a person’s system. The testosterone level measured when men go to the doctor is typically limited only to Total Testosterone.  Patients only get the sum of unbound and bound testosterone present in the patient’s system.

The problem with this that the total amount of testosterone measured is not always fully available for use. Because of the presence of bound and unbound testosterone in the system, the Total Testosterone measurement for a person may not equal the precise amount of testosterone he is actually able to utilize.  This is called Free Testosterone.

This is because bound and unbound testosterone are indicators of whether or not a testosterone can be immediately used by the body this Free Testosterone is a more important measure. A bound testosterone is one attached to proteins that need prior removal before it can be used, thereby needing some effort to be utilized. One of the proteins that binds to testosterones is albumin. While albumin does attach to testosterones, it is easily removed by the body when the testosterone is needed.

However, there are also particularly stubborn binding proteins that cannot be removed from the testosterone, thus rendering it unusable. An example of this is the Sex hormone binding globulin, or SBHG. Once SBHG attaches to your testosterone, it becomes unusable due to the difficulty of separating the protein from the testosterone, limiting the amount of available testosterone in the body.

The differences in functions and availability of these kinds of testosterone highlight the need to test for different types of testosterone. In studying testosterone levels in the system, it’s important to take into account the level of total testosterone, bio-available testosterone and free testosterone, along with the prevalence of SBHG proteins in the patients.

Free testosterone refers to unbound testosterones which are readily available to the body and thus, can be used with minimal effort. Bio-available testosterone, on the other hand, corresponds to both the free testosterones and testosterones bound to easily removed proteins such as albumin. SBHG limits the amount of Bio-available testosterone, giving a skewed amount of usable testosterone when analyzing the total count.

Erectile dysfunction’s relationship to your testosterone levels

Because of testosterone’s role as a primary sex hormone that establishes male traits and sex drive, research has been made to explore how testosterone levels and erectile function influence each other.

According to the study, there exists a proportional correlation between testosterone levels and erectile function, linking higher levels of the hormone with an increased sex drive and better erections. In addition to this, it also established that low testosterone levels was consistently present in cases of erectile dysfunction, and that low presence of the hormone may hamper erectile dysfunction medications such as Viagra from working properly.

Ultimately, the study concluded that a low amount of free testosterone coupled with high levels of SHBG posed the highest risk for erectile dysfunction in men, emphasizing the importance of monitoring testosterone levels when addressing the problem. Taking from the study, it goes that while there are many factors that can contribute to erectile function, it is useful to check testosterone levels because it was seen as a consistent influencing factor for erectile dysfunction as based on the data.

Because of testosterone’s effect on erectile dysfunction, aging men who are experiencing its symptoms are advised to first take a testosterone blood test that can measure the amount of total testosterone, free-testosterone and SHBG in their system. Because ultimately, it is free testosterone that determines the ready supply of the hormone in men, testing total testosterone may not provide sufficient information regarding one’s actual hormone levels. By testing all levels of testosterone, doctors may be able to determine if it is this deficit in available testosterone that hampers proper erectile function and sexual performance, providing the patient with better options of addressing the problem.

DHEADehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a naturally occurring hormone produced in the body. Secreted by the adrenal glands, it is precursor to other hormones and is transformed by the body into specific hormones once it reaches the target tissue. As a prohormone, most of it effects are related to its end products as opposed to DHEA itself. 

DHEA is gaining traction as an anti-aging supplement. It is also being explored as a treatment for several of the health conditions associated with aging. 

DHEA and its effects

DHEA is often touted as a “youth restoring” hormone because of its reputation for slowing down the age process, improving general energy levels and cognitive skills.  Because of this, many see it as a solution to regulate the side effects of aging and hormone depletion.

DHEA supplementation has shown an increase in energy, cognitive concentration, greater muscle mass/retention and slowing down the progression of Alzheimer disease. DHEA has been shown to have an influence on erectile dysfunction and lack of sex drive. In addition, Men with low DHEA more often experience depression as well as higher risks for overall mortality, including heart failure and cardiovascular threats.

DHEA Decline with Age

Unfortunately, DHEA production declines as its importance increases. DHEA production reaches its highest point during the 20s, but as one grows older, the body’s DHEA production  decreases, leaving as little as 20% of the healthy output by the time one reaches 70.

Since it is a precursor to other hormones, this decline leads to a corresponding effect in other hormones as well. Estrogen and testosterone synthesis, in particular, wane once the DHEA levels decrease. This brings forth several consequences for both sexes. In men, specifically, age-related DHEA decrease leads to a decline in testosterone secretion. This decline is compounded because of the larger role DHEA plays in the production of testosterone as we age.

DHEA Supplements and their Effects

From trials, DHEA supplements have been shown to increase muscle mass, strength and physical well-being in general. In addition, tests of increased concentration, in men and women, have been shown to improve sexual potency and mood, with women experiencing less menopausal symptoms after taking supplements. Overall, DHEA has been seen as an anti-aging supplement, providing bone and muscle strength, better moods and immune system and increased memory. 

When tested on patients with diabetes and neurological disorders, DHEA was not seen to improve erectile function and potency in patients. It has also been shown to exhibit minimal side effects such as mild acne, swollen ankles and increased facial hair in some women.

The effect of long term treatment on cardiovascular conditions and hormone-dependent tumors has not yet been studied, or have yielded conclusive results. 

DHEA Frontiers

DHEA supplements for anti-aging purposes are currently gaining traction. As a precursory hormone, it is seen by many as a way to regulate hormone balance within the body. In addition, DHEA’s reputation in increased bone and muscle strength, as well as energy, has many physicians exploring DHEA supplements and its effect on bone growth, depression, and other mood and cognitive disorders.

Depression from Low Testosterone and EstrogenA recent study at the George Washington University, found that men diagnosed with borderline low testosterone levels had much higher rates of experiencing depression and depressive symptoms compared to the general population. In the study, 56% of the male participants were diagnosed with depression while 25% were already taking medications for this.

Produced in the testicles, testosterone helps drive a man’s production of sperm, muscle strength and mass, sex drive, facial and body hair and bone density.  Men who don’t produce the normal amount of testosterone may have a condition called hypogonadism.

To Ward off Depression, Testosterone Converts to Estrogen

Testosterone, the male sex hormone, seems to have anti-depressant like properties, yet the exact mechanism of its effect still remained unclear.

In 2012, Mohammed Kabbaj and Nicole Carrier, both researchers at the Florida State University College of Medicine, are working to elucidate such mechanisms.  They have found out that a particular pathway called MAPK pathway in the hippocampal region, a part of the brain, involved in regulation of stress responses and memory formation, plays a vital role in mediating the effect of testosterone.

Low Testosterone and Depression

Between men and women, females are typically more prone to suffer from depression, however, men diagnosed with low T or hypogonadism are also predisposed to depression or anxiety. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy has been found to effectively enhance mood.

While it may seem that much is already known, it’s still very important to fully understand where and how these effects are happening so that scientists can develop better, targeted antidepressant therapies.

In the study, Kabbaj performed several experiments in neutered male rats and found that the rats manifested depressive-like behaviors that were then reversed by supplemental testosterone replacement.

According to the researcher, in order to protect males with hypogonadism from developing depression, testosterone in the brain must be converted to estrogen. Kabbaj stated a certain brain enzyme ‘mediates’ the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. Furthermore, inhibiting such enzyme in the hippocampal area has prevented the antidepressant effect of testosterone.  This makes the conversion to estrogen vital.

In this study, the antidepressant effect of supplementing low testosterone to normal levels has only manifested in male rats, not in female rats.

We all age. It is inevitable. It is part of life. Sermorelin can help.

Yet most of us wish to keep a highest quality of life as we age – a life where we can still keep as much of the strength, energy and appearance that we enjoy in our youth. Likewise, we hope to be spared the damage that comes with degenerative diseases. Hormones highly affects our vitality and longevity – an important key to our ability to look and feel young.

As we age, hormone levels change and evolve. The energy-producing, fat-burning hormones fall while the energy-depleting, fat-storing hormones will inversely rise. Such changes makes us feel and look older.

Sometimes, hormones severely drops into a deficiency, below the level that can maintain the best health outcomes. In this situation, hormone optimization– through exercise, sleep, diet, lifestyle changes and hormone therapy – can be very beneficial to one.

Human growth hormone is one of the most common, and important, body hormones that usually drops to deficiency level.

What is Adult Human Growth Hormone Deficiency?

Adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) is being recognized increasingly. It has been associated with cardiovascular, metabolic, neuromuscular, neuropsychiatric-cognitive and skeletal abnormalities.

Symptoms include:

  • Changes in memory, processing speed and attention
  • Lack of well-being
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Social isolation
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of strength
  • Fibromyalgia syndrome
  • Neuromuscular dysfunction
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Decreased bone density
  • Impaired cardiac function
  • Decreased insulin sensitivity
  • Increased buildup of abnormal fat masses in the blood vessel walls
  • Increased low-density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol
  • Decreased sweating and thermoregulation

Most of these symptoms can be reversed through growth hormone therapy.  Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency must be diagnosed before a physician can legally prescribe HGH to a patient.

How Sermorelin Helps Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency

Sermorelin for brain performance

Sermorelin Acetate (GRF 1-29) is a bio-identical growth hormone-releasing hormone that can be used to safely stimulate the production of growth hormone from the pituitary gland. An FDA-approved medication, it has been genetically engineered to increase the levels of growth hormone and reverse the effects of AGHD.

Sermorelin acetate was first developed in the 1970s, and was considered to be the shortest, yet fully functional piece of GHRH, that has been used to test for human growth hormone secretion.

Sermorelin has been used as a hormone replacement therapy for testosterone in men and an anti-aging product. Unlike human growth hormone, Sermorelin is a secretagogue, which means it stimulate the gland to secrete hormone.

How Sermorelin Help Improve Your Brain Function

The effect of growth hormone-releasing hormone is better observed among patients who secrete little to zero growth hormone due to pituitary tumors or the total removal of the gland where human growth hormone is produced.

Regardless of the age, all patients manifest similar psychological effects due to growth hormone deficiency. Symptoms include mood swings, anxiety, increased social isolation, decreased work capacity and depression (Ronald Klatz, Robert Goldman, Stopping the Clock, 2003).

GHRH has also been found to have positive effect on patients with mild cognitive impairment. In a study by the University of Washington School of Medicine (2013), thirty adults (17 diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment) ranging in age between 55 and 87 years participated in a study on the neurochemical effects of GHRH.

After 20 weeks of GHRH administration, results showed an increase in gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) and N-acetylaspartylglutamate (NAAG), and a decrease in myo-inositol (MI), which are positive indicators that may help reverse age-related decline and improve cognitive function.

Whether you are on hormone replacement therapy or considering it, there are also many natural ways to boost your male hormones including altering your diet. These foods can help your t levels either in conjunction with TRT or on their own.

T levels peak during adolescence, and start to decline in ones late 20s at the rate of about 1 percent each year, but low levels can be caused by or expedited by stress, a bad diet, obesity, and other factors. Low levels of testosterone cause changes in sexual function, sex drive, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, reduced strength and muscles, and can even cause depression and an inability to concentrate.
