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 Boonton, NJ, 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 Boonton, NJ, 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:

BOONTON — Gov. Phil Murphy, Acting Education Commissioner Angelica Allen-McMillan and U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill touted the Murphy administration’s expanded investments in pre-kindergarten on Wednesday.
The officials toured a preschool academy housed in Boonton High School visiting classrooms and taking part in some drawing activities with the students. Murphy later went to the Boonton Coffee Co. café for a roundtable discussion with four local pre-k mothers.
According to the governor’s office, Murphy’s FY2023 budget proposal includes an increase of $68 million in pre-K aid over last year, for a total of $991.8 million spent on pre-k. Boonton is set to receive over $1.8 million in preschool aid this year.
“Hello ladies and gentlemen” Murphy greeted the three and four-year-olds seated on a rug in the first classroom. Most of the children laughed. “That wasn’t intended to be a laugh line,” Murphy joked.
In the next classroom, some students asked the governor questions including: “how is the office?” and “can I be governor too?”
“Yeah, you want to do that today?” Murphy offered the boy, Christian, who had asked to take over the state leadership role.
Hearing the response, several other students asked if they too could be governor.
“You all can,” Murphy said.
One student told Murphy “I love you.”
Murphy responded “thank you for that man, love you right back…I only wish you could vote.”
The teacher told Christian she would give his phone number to Murphy’s people.
In the final classroom students practiced drawing shapes and naming things that were those shapes. Students said triangles could be pizza, a tent or watermelon. Squares could be windows, presents or a fish tank.
One kid, who had drawn on himself in black marker, told Murphy “your head is red.”
“Yeah it is I got sunburned,” Murphy said.
After the classroom visits, Murphy talked with the head of school who said the pre-k’s integration within the high school building has been good. Some high school students have siblings in the pre-k and the school has a program set up for the 12th graders to work with the younger kids and graduate with a Child Development Associate (CDA) Educational Certificate of Achievement.
At the coffeeshop after the school tour, Murphy talked with four mothers whose students are enrolled in the pre-k program.
They spoke about how the Covid-19 pandemic affected their children and how important being back in school in-person has been for their families.
Murphy said though his administration has expanded pre-k funding, “we still have a ways to go.” He estimated “realistically” there would be three or four more years to get to universal pre-k across the state.
“We’d love the federal government to come in and help us fund it but either way we’ll get there,” Murphy said.
The governor took photos with the moms.

Clearview Regional High School senior Ty Whalen seemed almost unbeatable coming into Saturday’s NJSIAA/Rothman Orthopaedics 144-pound State Wrestling final.
A defending state champion, Whalen won his first four matches in this tournament by technical fall, out-scoring the opposition, 65-2, but Boonton’s Joe Fongaro had other ideas.
The third-seeded Fongaro - a four-time state qualifier who placed sixth last year - took Whalen down in all three periods and notched a 10-9 upset over the No. 1 seed.
“When your foot’s on the line, none of that matters,” said Fongaro of his opponent’s credentials. “You don’t even have to know who the guy is. Pretend you’re wrestling a guy you hate, a teacher you don’t like. Just pound him. I wasn’t wrestling Ty Whalen, I was wrestling myself.”
Fongaro joined his sister, Julia, as a state finalist after she reached a girls state final two weeks ago. He also became the program’s first state champion in 30 years.
“There’s nothing like being a Bomber,” said Fongaro. “I have the best coaches. A lot of people say that, but I really mean it.”
Fongaro used takedowns in the first and second periods to build a 6-4 lead going into the third. He nearly put Whalen on his back in the second period, but the Pioneer senior was able to make it to his stomach.
Whalen almost won the match on top as a tilt to start the third period tied it up before a Fongaro reversal made it 8-6.
Whalen escaped and went for a throw, and Fongaro countered on the line for his own takedown and 10-7 lead. The Pioneer standout closed the gap with an escape and stall point, but Fongaro held him off the final seconds to record the upset and win his first state title.
“I thought winning in the semis was the greatest feeling, this is better,” said an emotional Fongaro. “This is everything I worked for, all the extra work after practice. Every single rep led to this. It all started watching my brother (Danny) try to achieve this and this was my final chance, I wasn’t going to let it slip.”
Whalen was trying to become the first two-time state champion in program history after winning as a junior last year. He was a three-time region and district champ and also has a fourth-place finish in the state to his credit.
Saturday’s final was a matchup we could see in the future with Whalen bound for Princeton and Fongaro for Rutgers.
“He’s a great opponent,” said Fongaro. “I like wrestling great opponents. I look forward to wrestling him in the future. I know I will.”

For years, the onset of winter weather meant an end to the restoration of the dozens of trains parked at Boonton's United Railroad Historical Society of New Jersey rail yard. At least until the crocuses returned.
Now, through rain, snow or gloom of night, you can find members of the group and its sister group, Tri-State Railway Historical Society, welding and repairing a conga line of railcars and engines in dire need of some TLC.
"This is a real game changer for us," Richie King, Tri-State's president, said of the 6,600-square-foot building that is the first indoor workspace URHS has owned in its 37-year history.
“For more than a decade, we had been working out of an old boxcar. This upgrade could not be a bigger deal for our volunteers,” said URHS President Kevin Phalon.
The 66-by-100-foot building is constructed primarily out of recycled shipping containers. It provides for two passenger-car-lengths of workspace under cover, plus 3,200 square feet of indoor storage and workspace in the containers themselves.
Built in 2012, the building was previously leased to a for-profit entity until that lease ended in October.
The United Railroad Historical Society took that opportunity to move its own operations into the building, and it is looking to raise $25,000 to get the workspace up to snuff. Individuals can donate directly to URHS online at URHS.org/donate, or by mail to 104 Morris Ave., Boonton NJ 07005.
“We still have a long way to go to turn this building into a full-fledged restoration shop,” Phalon said.
Volunteers intend to outfit each of the four ground-floor containers into shops for tools, welding and machines, paint and body, and parts storage.
“Now that we have an indoor space, we are able to do work that we could never do before,” said lead mechanic Erik Stenzel. “We are looking to acquire more shop machinery such as lathes, a milling machine and other metalworking tools to outfit our soon-to-be machine shop.”
Story continues after gallery
In all, there are roughly 60 engines and rail cars at the yard, including the New York Central Hickory Creek and Tavern-Lounge No. 43. The former was once the premier car of the 20th Century Limited train. It was inaugurated in 1948 by then-Gen. Dwight Eisenhower and offered luxury service between New York and Chicago.
The Hickory Creek car is used for a key fundraiser for the group, which runs excursions between Manhattan and Albany in the fall.
Last year, "The $300 tickets sold out in a few minutes," King said.
The groups' plan is first to promote the operations via events to show off the working cars and engines to the public at their new digs. Ultimately the plan is to foster a movement to create a museum to pay proper homage to New Jersey's role in railroad history.
Too many don't realize that New Jersey was the birthplace of locomotives and railroads, Phalon said.
It began with John Stevens' patenting of a practical steam engine shortly after the country's founding.
Then. in 1812, Stevens, a Revolutionary War veteran and colonel, published a pamphlet titled "Documents Tending to Prove the Superior Advantages of Rail-Ways and Steam-Carriages over Canal Navigation."
To prove trains' feasibility, Stevens built the first American steam locomotive on a 0.5-mile (0.8-kilometer) circular track on his Hoboken estate.
In 1815 the New Jersey Legislature granted Stevens the country's first charter for a railroad. This led to the formation in 1830 of the Camden & Amboy Railroad and Transportation Co.
One day, the goal for the historical groups is to prepare cars for display and use for a New Jersey Rail Museum.

What better way to show off extensive renovations at the historic Boonton Holmes Library than to have it host the town's first-ever book festival?
With many interior and exterior improvements completed, the nonprofit Boonton Main Street organization conducted a groundbreaking Friday for a new backyard courtyard that will include a stage for intimate outdoor performances and events.
The Boonton Books and Beyond Festival will welcome more than 30 authors and presenters at the library, the Boonton Coffee Company and the Boonton Elks Lodge from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 13.
With support from Boonton Mayor Richard Corcoran, the event was conceived "as a celebration of New Jersey’s own homegrown artists and authors, whether hailing from or based in the Garden State."
“We are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response from so many of the state’s outstanding writers,” said Tracy Pryer, Boonton’s director of recreation and festival co-chair. “The events will all be in-person, with appropriate COVID precautions in place, of course. So it’s a great opportunity for book lovers to meet and interact with authors.”
The participants represent a wide range of genres, including literary fiction, mystery, children’s picture books, TV scripts, comic books and more.
The festival presents a homecoming opportunity for Boonton Township native Gina Ippolito, who recently completed a two-year run as a scriptwriter for the CBS sitcom "The Unicorn."
"I think it's very cool that Boonton and Boonton Township and the surrounding areas have produced so many prolific writers with varied resumes," said Ippolito, who also wrote for the "Murphy Brown" reboot. "I'm excited to hear all of them speak. I think the whole town should be, too."
Ippolito recalls spending time at the Holmes Library as a child when her mother would study there for a graduate degree.
"She would just park me in the kids' section and I would devour the books until we left," Ippolito said. "It was one of my favorite places. I still have some of the free bookmarks they gave out."
Also appearing will be former Daily Record journalist Lorraina Ash, editor of the award-winning book "Corona City: One Anthology’s Remarkable Journey." Four contributing writers will join her for a discussion about the book, which compiled first-person stories and photography that follows life during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic in the New York-New Jersey region.
Festival events are free. Signed books from the presenters will be available for purchase.
“The festival schedule features more than 25 presentations in separate venues throughout the day,” library Director Lotte Newlin said. “That way, there will be something for all interests at any given time. Audiences should definitely plan to make a day of attending.”
Steven Kampschmidt, president of Boonton Main Street, said he hopes the festival will bring patronage to restaurants in town, some of which will feature a special prix-fixe lunch menu for the day.
“It’s great to have the participation of our fine eating establishments," he said. "It’s another excellent reason to visit Boonton on November 13.”
Presenters and visitors will find extensive renovations have already been completed at the library, including a bright new blue exterior color chosen to be appropriate for the Victorian Era, when the library was established at the top of Main Street and the corner of Boonton Avenue.
James Holmes donated the former residence in 1870 to be used as a library. The library received a makeover in 2010 after it was deeded over to the town.
More recently, a grant of $221,360 in 2020 from the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund helped fund partial exterior restoration of the south, east and west elevations, including repairs to the siding and trim, restoration of wood windows, and painting.
