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:

After decades serving deep fried hot dogs in Elmwood Park, River View East is closing Sunday.
Tom Decicco, the River View East owner since 1989, said Saturday that a combination of rising labor costs, inflation and rent has made the restaurant fiscally unsustainable.
“It’s a death by a thousand cuts,” he said. “I held it as long as I could."
Rose Maresca said she has frequented the restaurant since she moved to Elmwood Park 33 years ago. From hot dogs with her son after Little League games to office lunch orders and the occasional roast beef sandwich dinner, River View East has become part of her life, she said.
“We just found out today that tomorrow’s going to be their last day,” she said. “I was surprised, a bit sad and taken aback. It’s a nice place, it really is, for a quick hot dog.”
Maresca said Saturday that she was grateful to get in one last hot dog lunch at River View East. Her sentiment was echoed by Waldwick's Donna Johnson, who said she has had a hot dog there at least once a month for the past 30 years. Johnson said going out for hot dogs at the restaurant has been a family tradition, and she has never had a bad meal at the River Drive haunt.
"We were quite upset," Johnson said of River View East's closing. "My mother has been going there for over 50 years. We don't know where we're going to go now."
Some locals took to social media to lament the loss and give best wishes to the staff.
“I am at a loss for words as I head to work for my last day,” Jeannette Cottrell posted to the Elmwood Park Deserves Community Facebook group. “Such a sad day, as we all worked as a family.”
The restaurant is a classic old-school joint with a wonderfully preserved squat 1950s building, all-booths interior and a super-long counter offering an all-American menu of burgers, subs, salads, chicken and more.
But it's best known for the Texas weiner with its Greek-style chili sauce, which former owner Michael Tsistrakis proudly told us in 2018 "is the best."
A hot dog taste team The Record/northjersey.com assembled in 2017 agreed. Two of our three judges declared River View East's the top dog. Tsistrakis said he used to sell an average 500 a day; 700 on weekend days. The Thumann's franks are, as tradition dictates, deep fried, slathered with mustard and topped with diced onions and a nicely thin chili sauce.
Our food editor, Esther Davidowitz, found that the sauce had a pleasant, slightly sour, taste. Tsistrakis told her his sauce includes some 10 spices — none that would account for the mild sour taste. "I can't tell you what's in it though," he said, explaining that there's always a chance someone might want to copy it.

Four years after a fire tore through Marcal Paper’s former factory in Elmwood Park, vertical construction is underway on the industrial development that will rise in its place.
Crow Holdings Development recently announced it started that work on its new, 206,826-square-foot logistics hub at the 1 Market St. location, which it acquired last year in a joint venture with Atlas Holdings, Marcal‘s majority shareholder.
Texas-based Crow Holdings expects to generate $34 million in economic activity at the site along with 140 short-term jobs during the construction process.
With a scheduled delivery date of September 2023, the project is expected to support the equivalent of 240 full-time jobs, according to Crow, and produce $630,000 in property tax payments to Bergen County, the municipality and the local school district.
“We are thrilled to begin construction of this state-of-the-art new facility that will transform the former Marcal site into one of the region’s most advanced logistics offerings,” said Clark Machemer, Crow Holdings Development’s senior managing director for the Northeast region, in a statement. “1 Market St. will not only create jobs and contribute to the growth of the county’s economy, but it will also provide much-needed logistics space in one of the country’s most land-constrained markets, delivering a bright new future for the town and this historic site.”
With a design that reflects the iconic architecture of its former occupant and located 17 miles from Manhattan, the nearly 12-acre property offers immediate access to Interstates 80 and 95. According to Crow, the speculative development will feature:
JLL handled the sale of the Marcal property – where the company reopened with a smaller plant in 2020 – and serves as exclusive agent for the site. Vice Chairman David Knee, Executive Managing Director Chris Hile, Senior Vice President Ignatius Armenia and Vice President Ryan Milanaik are marketing the property among e-commerce and logistics occupiers increasingly under pressure to move goods competitively and quickly, according to the firm.
In its first quarter insights in the industrial sector for 2023, JLL reported that despite record construction activity and moderation in preleasing, vacancy rates are still constrained.
The catalyst behind that demand was new logistics space, like Crow’s project in Elmwood Park. According to JLL, in Q1 that kind of Class A product accounted for more than half of leasing activity.
“Despite macro-economic headwinds, the New Jersey industrial market remains resilient as 3PL’s, food and beverage, and consumer goods companies seek well-located, modern facilities in close proximity to the world’s major population hubs,” Knee said. “1 Market St. will reinvent a historic factory into an economic engine of the 21st century, generating jobs, contributing to the local tax base and meeting market demand for effective logistics solutions.”

Elmwood Park, NJ (September 29, 2023) – Six people were hurt in an accident in Elmwood Park. Reports show the collision occurred on the morning of September 27 when a vehicle turned over on the Garden State Parkway.
Several responders were dispatched to the scene of the incident shortly after it occurred at around 10:24 a.m. on Wednesday. Sources say a vehicle overturned at Exit 157 going toward Fairlawn.
Six individuals were injured and transported to HUMC by numerous ambulances. Their identities have not been reported at this time. Authorities in Elmwood Park continue to investigate the circumstances of the collision.
The roadway was blocked while emergency crews worked to help those with injuries. No further information has currently been reported.
Our thoughts are with everyone involved. We hope for the complete recovery of the injured victims.
Every year, over 6 million car accidents happen in the United States. Hundreds of thousands of these crashes take place in the state of New Jersey. New Jersey sees over 100,000 reported vehicle accidents every single year. These crashes happen under countless circumstances, and the majority of them are unintentional. Unfortunately, the majority of them are also preventable and caused by the actions of negligent drivers.
Negligent driving can be displayed in several different ways, including distraction, fatigue, intoxication, and speeding. Right now, the most common types of driver negligence displayed among drivers in the state of New Jersey and throughout the United States are driver distraction and intoxication. Even though these two actions are some of the most preventable, they are also the most common among American drivers.
Every year, over 400,000 traffic collisions happen due to the actions of drivers who are distracted while operating their vehicles. Additionally, over 30% of the national accident fatality rate can be attributed to intoxicated driving. Also, over 50% of the people who lose their lives in intoxicated driving accidents in the United States are intoxicated drivers themselves.
Being hurt by a negligent driver can land you in the hospital with painful injuries while you are unable to live your life the way you did before your accident. You may be dealing with a plethora of problems that can only be helped with the aid of a skilled legal advocate. A car crash attorney can help you get the financial compensation you need when you file a personal injury claim.

Crow Holdings Development, the development platform of Crow Holdings and one of the nation’s largest industrial developers, has broken ground for its state-of-the-art new 206,826-square-foot industrial property on the site of the former Marcal Paper factory in Elmwood Park, N.J.
Four years after fire ravaged the historic Bergen County mill, 1 Market Street will be transformed into a prominent logistics hub, able to accommodate companies seeking modern logistics space in one of the country’s tightest industrial markets.
With a highly visible location just off Exit 61 of I-80, the speculative new development will feature 40-foot clear ceiling heights, 32 loading docks, two drive-in doors, and parking for 56 trailers and 198 cars. The fully sprinklered facility will have 7-inch-thick concrete floors designed to accommodate heavy goods and machinery across the space, and feature a design that reflects the iconic architecture of the former manufacturing facility that once stood in its place.
Situated just 17 miles from Manhattan, 1 Market Street offers direct access via I-80 and I-95 to the largest consumer base in the United States. The facility is scheduled to be delivered in August of 2023.
“We are thrilled to begin building this state-of-the-art new facility that will transform the former Marcal site into one of the region’s most advanced logistics offerings,” said Clark Machemer, Crow Holdings Development’s Senior Managing Director for the Northeast region. “1 Market Street will not only create jobs and contribute to the growth of the county’s economy, but it will also provide much-needed logistics space in one of the country’s most land-constrained markets, delivering a bright new future for the town and this historic site.”
After a fire in 2019 destroyed 90 percent of the old Marcal factory, the site re-opened as a smaller plant a year later. Texas-based Crow Holdings Development acquired the 11.87-acre site in 2022 and, in a joint venture with Atlas Holdings, Marcal’s majority shareholder, expects to generate $34 million in economic activity and 140 short-term jobs during construction. Once complete, 1 Market Street will produce $630,000 in property tax payments to the county, Elmwood Park, and the borough school district and support the equivalent of 240 full-time jobs.
JLL, which handled the sale of the property, is serving as the exclusive agent for 1 Market Street. A team that includes David Knee, Chris Hile, Ignatius Armenia and Ryan Milanaik is marketing the property among e-commerce and logistics occupiers increasingly under pressure to move goods competitively and quickly.
“Despite macro-economic headwinds, the New Jersey industrial market remains resilient as 3PL’s, food and beverage, and consumer goods companies seek well-located, modern facilities in close proximity to the world’s major population hubs,” Knee said. “1 Market Street will reinvent a historic factory into an economic engine of the 21st century, generating jobs, contributing to the local tax base and meeting market demand for effective logistics solutions.”

Can you believe Hell’s Kitchen first aired in the US in 2005? Season 22 debuts on Fox on Sep. 28. The discrepancy between the number of seasons and years is because sometimes there are multiple seasons in one calendar year.
The new season, dubbed “The American Dream”, features 18 aspiring chefs, one of whom is from New Jersey. According to the show’s fan Wiki, it is 39-year-old Sandra Day, a lead catering chef from Elmwood Park.
If you’re unfamiliar, the series is hosted by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who created and appeared in the British series of the same name.
Each season, two teams of chefs compete for a job as head chef at a restaurant, while working in the kitchen of a restaurant set up in the television studio. A progressive elimination format reduces a field of contestants down to a single winner over the course of each season.
The show is known for its intense atmosphere and Ramsay's notoriously fiery temper. Ramsay is known for his scathing critiques of the chefs' cooking and his frequent use of profanity.
However, he is also known for his passion for food and his desire to help the chefs succeed.
Hell's Kitchen has been a critical and commercial success, and it has won numerous awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program in 2007.
The show has also spawned a number of international spin-offs, including Hell's Kitchen UK, Hell's Kitchen Australia, and Hell's Kitchen Canada.
There is also a chef from Philadelphia, Dahmere Merriwether, a personal chef.
On Sep. 28, we’ll hear the iconic, “Open Hell’s Kitchen…”
