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 Elmwood Park, 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 Elmwood Park, 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:

The Marcal Property along Market Street in Elmwood Park, a fixture in the community for nearly a century, will soon be transformed.
The 11.87-acre property along Market Street was acquired from Marcal and a site plan has been approved by the borough, according to a Monday announcement from Crow Holdings Development, which plans to break ground this summer.
The Marcal property is home to an iconic business that has created careers for thousands for many years. In 2019, a fire devastated a part of the site, and this redevelopment is expected to benefit the area in significant ways.
The redevelopment project is expected to generate a significant economic stimulus to the local and state economies. The impacts of the redevelopment project in the construction phase include a $34 million impact for Bergen County and $38 million economic impact for the state of New Jersey, along with 140 direct temporary jobs.
Ongoing operations of the facility following construction are expected to produce an estimated $28 million annually in economic impact in New Jersey and support 240 full-time equivalent jobs, and approximately $630,000 in new property taxes to the borough of Elmwood Park, Elmwood Park School District and Bergen County.
Crow Holdings worked together with the borough on the proposed project and incorporated significant design input for a proposed 206,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art industrial building.
An affiliate of Atlas Holdings, the majority shareholder of Marcal, will also be investing in the project, alongside Crow Holdings Development. The investment demonstrates Atlas’ continued commitment to the region and enthusiasm for the planned revitalization of this iconic location.
“Marcal is thrilled that Crow Holdings Development will be transforming this parcel of land into a new gem for our borough, our county and our state. The property to be revitalized sits vacant today, and thus is not benefitting Elmwood Park or Bergen County in any way. Via this partnership with the borough and Crow Holdings Development, we have taken the necessary step to change that,” Rob Baron, CEO and president of Marcal Paper, said.
“Crow Holdings Development is rooted in the spirit of partnership, and we have been proud to work closely with Marcal, the community, and so many stakeholders to help redevelop this iconic site,” Clark Machemer, Crow Holdings Development’s senior managing director for the Northeast Region, said. “We recognize and appreciate the history of this site, and we look forward to bringing new economic activity to such a highly visible, prime location.”
“The planned development for the unused Marcal parcel should be a win across the board. The greater Elmwood Park community could see economic growth, the protection of existing jobs, and the creation of new jobs,” U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-9th Dist.) said. “We were all shaken by the tragic fire at Marcal and the fact that the company has been able to reopen at all is so welcomed. I am pleased to have engaged closely with the borough, Marcal and our neighbors and workers to make sure that we delivered another positive result for our entire community.”
Crow Holdings Development has tapped Rob Kossar, David Knee, Chris Hile, Ignatius Armenia, and Ryan Milanaik of Jones Lang LaSalle to lease the space.

HAWTHORNE, NJ - Joe Mazzacca, the veteran and enthusiastic head coach of the Hawthorne High School wrestling program, knows what it takes to lead a team, as well as individual student athletes toward their full potential on the mat.
Just last winter, the Bears finished with a strong overall record of 11-7 with a mark of 2-2 (second place) in their North Jersey Interscholastic Conference (NJIC) Division.
The Bears also advanced to the NJSIAA North 1 Group 1 Sectional Tournament semifinal round before losing to perennial power Emerson Boro last season. Hawthorne topped Butler in the Sectional quarterfinal round last February.

“We graduated a lot of guys with a ton of experience, so it will take some time to fill in those shoes, but I think the potential is there,’’ Mazzacca said. “They work very hard at practice and I have been impressed with the way they work each day.
“So I think right now, we are in a rebuild phase and want to build up experience for our young team but with how hard they work, we can certainly reach where we want to go earlier than expected.’’
This season, the Bears are scheduled to begin the season with tournament at Garfield High School starting on December 15. On December 21, Hawthorne is slated to host Cresskill at a dual meet.
“Our top returning wrestlers this year are Kaleb Ambrose (junior, 113 pounds), Cormac Smith (junior, 144 pounds), Antonio Sangama (junior, 285 pounds) and Adam Hdaib (senior, 175 pounds),’’ Mazzacca said.
“We have a lot of young wrestlers this year, a lot of promising freshmen. They all seem very tough and physical.’’
Leadership on the roster will be very important for the Bears this year.
“Kaleb Ambrose and Cormac Smith are our captains this year,’’ Mazzacca said. “They are great leaders and have already displayed that in practice this year. They both work very hard during practice which rubs off on the other wrestlers in the room.
“They are also great with helping out everyone in the room. I am very impressed by their leadership so far.’’
The Bears compete in the NJIC Liberty Division along with Elmwood Park, Pompton Lakes, Secaucus and New Milford.
“We will be young this year and are looking to build some experience for the team,’’ Mazzacca said. “We always have our goals to compete for the league and make the team States.
“Our Division is always tough with teams that are always good. Pompton Lakes is the defending champs for our Division; New Milford has a ton of talented kids on their team and I think they are going to be very good. Elmwood Park is always tough and a physical team [with] good wrestlers; and Secaucus had a nice year last year, and they have a talented group. So I think our Division will be very completive this year.’’

ELMWOOD PARK — Almost four years after a raging fire destroyed the Marcal Paper factory, developers are gearing up to start construction on a $100 million warehouse project to replace the empty lot that now occupies part of the Route 80 site.
Texas-based Crow Holdings Development hopes to start prep work in the coming days, including the installation of new fencing and bringing in equipment and materials, said Borough Administrator Michael Foligno. The developer said it would begin construction this fall.
Crow Holdings announced in May that it planned to build a 206,000-square-foot “state-of-the-art modern industrial building” on the 12-acre property, with construction expected to take 12 to 18 months.
Marcal, a major employer in the region for almost a century, saw its red-brick factory and famous neon sign obliterated in January 2019, in a blaze that required 400 firefighters from 50 North Jersey towns to quell the flames.
Now, initial site work for the warehouse is getting underway, Foligno said in an interview last week. That entrails moving materials and construction equipment to the site and fencing off the property, work that typically takes up to six weeks, Foligno said.
“You’re not going to see structures going up yet,” he said. “You have to prepare the grounds. It’ll be preliminary stuff.”
Construction is slated to begin “this fall,” Crow spokesperson Adam McGill said in an email, after some “fine details that are being worked out” on the project.
The redevelopment will generate $34 million in economic activity in Bergen County and 140 short-term jobs, the developer said in May. The company estimates the site will produce an additional $630,000 in property tax payments to the county, Elmwood Park and the borough school district. The warehouse will support the equivalent of 240 full-time jobs, Crow said.
Marcal officials said after the fire that about 500 jobs had been lost, though the business was able to resume some manufacturing on the site in early 2020 after the coronavirus lockdown boosted demand for paper products.
