Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Aventura, FL, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Aventura, FL, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

Another new restaurant in Aventura is ready to open.
Joey, a brand created in Canada that serves what it calls “globally inspired cuisine,” is opening its first Florida location next to the growing Aventura Mall. There are already Joey locations in Washington, California and Texas.
The new, two-level restaurant will be part of the new Esplanade development next to the south side of the mall. The 215,000-square-foot open-air area will be home to stores, restaurants and work spaces.
Layne Krienke, president of the Joey Restaurant Group, said that Miami’s vibrant nature makes it a great spot for Florida’s first Joey location.
“Miami is the epicenter of culture, and we can’t wait to bring our diverse, globally inspired menu, paired with our immense love of hospitality, to the city’s renowned restaurant scene,” he said in a statement.
The new Joey, which exists in a standalone building and isn’t part of the mall, boasts 8,300 square feet with a 1,250 square foot patio with space for 82 guests. A circular bar is the focal point of the dining room, which seats 241 and has floor to ceiling windows (all the better to see the rest of the Esplanade).
The design of the new restaurant is specific to the Miami location, with colorful works from artists Elsbeth Shaw and Anna Kincaide throughout the room (Shaw’s works, called “Miami Love Versace,” are inspired by Miami).
The menu, from “Top Chef Canada” winner Matthew Stowe, Joey’s executive chef, features a variety of cuisines from sushi to steak; you’ll also find burgers, sandwiches and bowls. Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes are roasted corn guacamole; hummus with tzatziki, dill, olives and pita; seared salmon; sake-glazed Chilean sea bass and Italian favorites like chicken parm and ravioli bianco.
You’ll also find a bar menu with spicy passion fruit margaritas, real peach Bellinis and sangria, plus the Joey Supers, a variation of a classic highball with lemon and lime slush.
Joey isn’t the only new restaurant opening in the area. The Aventura Mall, which is also home to Tap 42, Pubbelly Sushi and Motek Israeli restaurant, which won Burger Bash at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival two years in a row, has a new tenant: Toku Asian restaurant from Long Island, which opened near the Nordstrom entrance.
Where: 19505 Biscayne Blvd., Suite 1150, Aventura
Opening: July 13
Hours: 11 a.m.-midnight Sunday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Friday-Saturday

Joey’s wide-ranging menu pays homage to global flavors: roasted corn guacamole, hummus paired with tzatziki, dill, olives, and crispy pita; seared salmon sushi, and sake-glazed Chilean sea bass. Its popular steak dish, a customer favorite served with crispy mashed potatoes, also makes the Miami menu. For those who crave Italian, items like ravioli bianco, chicken parmesan, and spaghetti pomodoro are available. The menu is overseen by Joey’s team of chefs consisting of a three-time James Beard House guest chef, an Iron Chef from Japan, a Bocuse d’Or veteran competitor, and Top Chef Canada winner Matthew Stowe, who serves as executive chef of all Joey Restaurants.
The bar offers a full menu with drinks like the Spicy Passion Fruit Margarita with serrano pepper-infused tequila and a sweet Real Peach Bellini that blends rum, peach molasses, sparkling wine, and Sangria. Guests can also enjoy the Joey Supers, a blend of lemon and lime slush, adding a twist to the classic highball.
Located in the Esplanade at Aventura, the restaurant spans two levels and covers 8,300 square feet of interior space plus a 1,250 square-foot patio; and is designed with Miami in mind. The 241-seat dining room boasts a circular bar, floor-to-ceiling windows, and art installations from artists Elsbeth Shaw and Anna Kincaide. The main dining room features an 82-seat outdoor patio aptly equipped with fans and a retractable awning.

When the 200-plus Florida shluchim traveled together last year during the summer to Alma Ata to the tziyun of Reb Levi Yitzchak Schneersohon, the Rebbe’s father, it was an extraordinary experience. For those privileged to make the journey, the feelings of inspiration lingered long after.
Seeking to recapture some of that remarkable energy, this same cohort of shluchim—along with fellow shluchim from neighboring southern states—convened once again for this year’s regional Kinus. Last year it was the gritty and storied environment of Kazhakstan; this year, the sunny and tropical delight of Aventura South, Florida, in the beautiful and spacious Chabad House there under the leadership of Rabbi Mendel and Raizel Rosenfeld.
After viewing video footage from the kinus last year in Alm Ata, the stage was set for a remarkable day of achdus and motivation—and practical development. With a packed schedule of sessions on a bevy of topics, just a few hours provided hefty resources. Topics covered such a wide spectrum as Managing Stress and Challenges to Access to Federal Funding, to Jewish Veterans and Active Service Members, to How to Raise Healthy Chassidishe Children.
A particularly special session was when three senior shluchim—Rabbi Shabsi Alprin, from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Rabbi Shalom Ber Lipskar from Bal Harbour, FL and Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, South Broward, FL—shared with their younger members many personal directives from the Rebbe and other invaluable nuggets culled from years in the field.
Of course, beyond the particular sessions, tips, best practices, and professional development, it was simply a refresher and a recharge for all those who attended. “I was on the vaad that helped organize the Kinus, as well as part of the group who went last year to Alma Ata,” said Rabbi Mendy Katz of Chabad of Mid Miami Beach, FL, “and baruch Hashem, I must say that the same magic in the air was there. It was a physically and materially wonderful event, and that only served to amplify the spiritual energy.”
“Throughout the year, we each toil away in our own corners, and whether we’re conscious of it or not, our batteries need some recharging,” said Rabbi Eli Eckstein of Chabad Dania Beach, FL. “Coming together with fellow Shluchim even just for these few hours of inspiration and connection is rejuvenating for body and soul.”
Much credit goes to Rabbi Rosenfeld for hosting, as well as to Rabbi Bentzion Korf for running the entire kinus. Another special privilege for all the Floridian shluchim was to hear Rabbi Avraham Korf, head shliach of Florida, lead the crowd for Tehillim during the banquet.
The banquet offered more than just food, of course. A world-class musical performance by Rabbi Berel Zuker provided the ambience, and inspirational remarks from Mr. Moshe Tabicinic, a staunch and generous supporter of many Chabad activities across the world, was received with much acclamation.
This kinus was the perfect platform to introduce the newly elected head of the Vaad Hashluchim of Florida, Rabbi Yosef Raichik. As the head of a very active and democratic vaad, the shluchim were very enthused to hear about the many projects and initiatives Rabbi Raichik and his office are rolling out to keep the well-oiled machine of Chabad of Florida humming along even more efficiently and effectively, carrying out the Rebbe’s vision to the utmost.
“The Rebbe strongly encouraged these regional kinusim,” said Rabbi Kotlarsky, chairman of the International Kinus Hashluchim and the one entrusted by the Rebbe with facilitating regional Kinusim worldwide, “and to see how each year, the shluchim appreciate them so much, makes that vision clear. Of course, as this year is a Hakhel year, it makes such gatherings even more important. With Hashem’s help, the zechus of this achdus should bring us the ultimate Hakhel in the Beis Hamikdash!”

Two warehouses near Aventura could be redeveloped into a 20-story apartment complex.
Aventura Pointe LLC, managed by Yakov Cohen and Shimon Bouskila in Sunny Isles Beach, filed a pre-application with Miami-Dade County concerning the 2.09-acre site at 2655-2660 N.E. 189th St. The developer purchased the project in the Ojus neighborhood for $10.07 million in August 2022.
It currently has two warehouses totaling 36,561 square feet, which would be demolished to make way for the project. The site is on the west side of the FEC Railway, about four blocks south of the new Aventura Brightline passenger rail station.
The developer recently revised the plans for Aventura Pointe, originally filed in November, to incorporate a workforce housing density bonus. Attorney Javier L. Vazquez, of Berger Singerman in Miami, said the density on the site would be increased by 25% in exchange for reserving 10% of the units as workforce housing.
“They are not just offering workforce housing for purposes of the density bonus that comes with it,” Vazquez said. “They are realizing that it’s a priority for our civic leaders and a reality that the workforce population just can’t afford some of the rents that are available in the community.”
Aventura Pointe would total 649,200 square feet, with 327 apartments, 9,708 square feet of commercial space and 458 parking spaces. There would be an amenity deck on the fifth floor with a pool and 4,320 square feet of indoor amenities, and another deck on the ninth floor with a pet park and a pickleball court.
The apartments would range from 640 to 1,250 square feet. There would be 122 one-bedroom units, 178 two-bedroom units and 27 three-bedroom units.
North Miami Beach-based Idea Architecture designed the project.
Vazquez said the project would include the creation of a north-south road that connects Northeast 189th Street to Northeast 189th Terrace. The new road would be on the west side of the building, with the railroad tracks on the east side of the structure. Both streets currently reach a dead end at the railroad tracks.
The project complies with the current zoning of the property, so the developer only needs site plan review approval from county staff, Vazquez said.
There’s been a wave of redevelopment in the Ojus neighborhood as developers take advantage of the increased density the county has permitted for the area. Ojus has become an attractive place to live because it’s near the popular shops and restaurants in Aventura, and the new Brightline station makes it easier to reach downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach.
