A host of human hormone research studies have demonstrated that, in order to improve health and naturally increase testosterone levels, it must go hand-in-hand.
The hard part of sifting through all of that complex research is that it’s often difficult to tell the cart from the horse. Health and Testosterone are so closely linked in men that it’s hard to see when low T causes poor health, or when poor health causes low T.
Do we become healthier when we naturally increase testosterone levels, or by making positive lifestyle changes, do our bodies naturally increase testosterone levels? One thing that is clear, though, is that by taking manageable steps to naturally increase your testosterone, you’re putting yourself into a Win/Win situation. These lifestyle choices are just good health advice, and they also increase your T. We have also seen a scientific study of 83,000 US veterans over a 15 year period assessing the benefits of Testosterone Therapy.
This study showed that US veterans with low testosterone, supplemented under Physician guidance back to normal levels have lower incidence of heart attack, stroke, prostate cancer and mortality.
Here are our Top Seven reasons to naturally increase testosterone levels that will undoubtedly make you a much happier and healthier Man (increasing testosterone does help with all of the symptoms and issues caused by Low T):
There is no doubt that an increase in testosterone will positively impact your entire muscular system by increasing crucial muscle protein synthesis that contributes directly to muscular growth. An upgrade for your muscular system, at any and every age, will naturally lead to a healthier, more confident and capable you.
The heart is the single most important muscle in your body. An increase in testosterone will not, by itself, lead to the prevention of cardiovascular disease, but the direct benefits derived from naturally increasing your Testosterone level will lead directly to more sustainable cardiovascular health if your physician monitors and manages the patients red blood cell count and hematocrit levels.
Every medical study has proven that men suffering from obesity have a consistently lower-than-average testosterone level (and coinciding above-average estrogen levels) and there are clear reasons for this. When our testosterone levels decrease, insulin and glucose regulation decreases accordingly as the body’s natural ability to metabolize fat also declines. Testosterone levels play a crucial role in the body’s insulin and glucose regulation as well as the body’s ability to metabolize fat.
As we age, men can suffer from the debilitating effects of osteoporosis but testosterone is an often overlooked health ingredient that plays a significant factor in overall bone density and strength. Testosterone is a key component in effective bone mineralization and resorption, increasingly important as we age and our bones tend to lose a degree of density.
The hard fact is that the primary function of testosterone is as a vital reproductive hormone. It returns desire as well as sexual function.
Testosterone helps regulate cortisone, which is a stress hormone, and affects the efficiency of our brain’s neurotransmitters. When men suffer from decreased testosterone levels they lose some ability to effectively regulate cortisol levels, which can cause neurotransmitters malfunction and lapses in memory.
Alzheimer’s and dementia are most frequent in 65+ men often caused by Andropause. In addition, a healthy testosterone level is a distinct competitive advantage in the game that we call “life”. Feel the way you used to feel and improve your drive, confidence, energy, look, outlook, sexual interest and function while living a healthier life.
These are all improvements you can achieve through natural means. Natural means will increase testosterone levels, however, they will not always optimize your levels to where you feel the way you used to feel for reasons including hypogonadism, aging, health conditions and more. These are great healthy ways to live your life, however, the expert Hormone and Testosterone physicians at Hormone Therapeutics can put you on a proper Testosterone and Hormone Replacement Therapy program.
Hormone Therapeutics will assess your symptoms and complete medical history. We will schedule your complete blood tests. We will interview you and then develop a program specifically for you. We will give you another blood test at the 6-8 week mark of treatment and also a 24 point self-evaluation of the progress against the symptoms of low testosterone.
After further blood testing and evaluation of your progress we can adjust your treatment as needed. The treatment could include supplemental testosterone, HCG to encourage your system to naturally produce more testosterone, estrogen blockers to manage your Estradiol : Total Testosterone ratio and optimize hormone balance. There are also many other factors and tests we can assess and other treatments we can consider depending on your unique situation.
Always start with a natural approach to optimizing your health. Good clean living, a healthy diet, exercise and sleep patterns will go a long way to giving you the life and health you desire. Our Physicians are here to help you.

A study has shown that serum testosterone concentration in men may have links to fitness and health levels that can serve as an indicator of general health. These studies are exploring how testosterone content may affect all-cause mortality in older men and what it may mean for men as they age.
Testosterone (T) is a hormone produced by males in the testicles after a communication pathway called the HPA axis from the hypothalamus to the pituitary gland through the adrenals and to the gonads. While it is also present by women, it is produced in much higher concentrations in men. It is responsible for maintaining energy, bone density, muscles mass, sperm production and sex drive, along with other traits, and is associated with maintaining many of the characteristics associated with men.
The level of T concentration in men peaks and declines at given points in their lifetime. In general, serum T concentration is highest in adolescence and young adulthood, when it is at its peak. However, as men age, its levels commonly undergo a steady decline. Men peak at age and experience a range of one to two percent decline in their concentration.
Scientists have been exploring possible links of testosterone as an indicator of men’s health conditions, studying the correlation of low T with general health and mortality.
One study has discovered that while a decline in men’s T levels of one to two percent is considered normal, a sudden and immediate drop in testosterone concentration may be associated with an increased probability of mortality. Based on observations, a low level of serum testosterone concentration in men is seen as associated with risk factors such as diabetes and cardiovascular problems. However, while these conditions may be associated with illnesses and premature death, the FDA is not saying they see a direct causational effect between decreasing testosterone and longevity.
Currently, available studies tackling the topic have produced mixed results. In one study researching a sample of 794 men, it was concluded that men whose testosterone levels were in the lowest quartile of test subjects were at a 40% greater risk of mortality in comparison to those men who had higher levels. A 15 year study of US military veterans also showed that men with low T levels, treated under physician guidance and supplemented back to normal levels above 500, had lower incidence of heart attack, stroke, prostate cancer and death.
In an effort to consolidate all the data and results from these previous researches, a newer study examined multiple works from 1966 to 2010 in order to gain a clearer and more definitive understanding of testosterone levels and mortality. In addition to testosterone levels, it also took into account lifestyle factors, age and other characteristics that may affect results.
Ultimately, the research concluded that a decline in total testosterone was linked with cardiovascular mortality by 25% and with higher susceptibility to general, all-cause mortality by 35%.
The study did note that other factors may influence the relative risk that was determined in the study. Among these, researchers noted the age of the population studied, the total testosterone level and the amount of years the patient followed up as possible sources of differences within the study. The study also observed the most susceptible demographics for larger relative risks. These included patients with lower levels of testosterone, older men and patients who followed up for a smaller amount of years.
As a conclusion, the data gathered from this research establishes low T as a possible basis or indicator of general health in men. However, while it may be seen as a marker of higher susceptibility to all-cause mortality, it is not strictly a direct source of it. Overall, there remains much to be learned about the two.
Aside from being and indicator of one’s general well-being, testosterone levels and hormone balance are traits that can greatly affect one’s quality of life. As men age, it becomes important to monitor these factors in order to gain a better idea of one’s health and fitness.

83,000 US Military veteran patients were studied to understand the risks and benefits of Testosterone Therapy for patients diagnosed with low testosterone. The study found that men diagnosed with ‘Low T’ and restored to normal testosterone levels through physician guidance had lower risks of heart attack, lower risks of stroke, and lower risks of death than the men who lived with low testosterone levels. This study indicates that testosterone therapy improves heart health.
This study was published in August, 2016 in the European Heart Journal after reviewing the cases of 83,000 US Veterans, over the age of 50, treated between 1999 and 2014. One of the groups tested showed that Men treated being treated with Testosterone Therapy were 24% less likely to suffer a heart attack, 36% less likely to suffer a stroke and 56% less likely to die during the follow-up period. The studies results seem to advocate for testosterone replacement therapy, however Dr. Barua stresses the need for “appropriate screening, selection, dosing, and follow-up of patients to maximize the benefit of testosterone therapy. Patients who failed to achieve the therapeutic range after testosterone replacement therapy did not see a reduction in [heart attack] or stroke and had significantly less benefit on mortality.”
Hormone Therapeutics agrees that one clear point in the study is that patients were under physician guidance and their testosterone therapy was only shown to be beneficial when bringing the patients back from low testosterone levels to normal testosterone levels. It’s important to note that this study did not show health benefits from patients who were not brought back to normal levels. This is also not an analysis of men taking high dosages of Testosterone past normal levels and what that does to one’s health. While traditionally, testosterone therapy has not been prescribed with a goal of improving heart health, this study should lead to more studies to look at that possibility.

Approximately 20 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s, dementia, or have a family member who does and diet can help stave off these conditions. Vitamin B-12 deficiency symptoms are often misdiagnosed because the symptoms can develop, either quickly or over time, and the symptoms can be similar to other complex issues (including Low T).

Patient Question: With so many different workouts, how do I pick the right one for me?
Answer: The workout for you is whatever workout you’ll do — even if it’s not the most effective. That because if you enjoy doing it then you’re more likely to stick with it, and that’s the most important ingredient for losing weight and improving your fitness, says BJ Gaddour, C.S.C.S., CEO of Men’s Health StreamFit.

Testosterone levels decrease as men age causing symptoms such as weight gain, fat storage, muscle loss, low libido, fatigue and irritability and hormone therapy can help reverse these common side effects of low testosterone. A recent French study concluded that testosterone therapy helps men improve their health through weight loss, combatting the effects of low testosterone.
