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 Finesville, 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 Finesville, 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:

Stone buildings are common in the village of Finesville, which is in Pohatcong Township.
But not all offer the charm of John and Marsha Maier's late-1700s/early-1800s home and property. It's just off Route 627, not far from where the Musconetcong River separates Warren and Hunterdon counties.
The Maiers purchased the property in 2005, and since then they've been busy restoring it.
From repointing stones in the bank house to sanding floors and scraping paint in the part of the property that was once a general store, the home has been lovingly and carefully transformed into a cozy cool space.
John is a carpenter by trade with a love and respect for repurposing materials. The kitchen cabinets came from the old Alexandria Presbyterian Church barn before it was dismantled. Other material was rescued from nearby structures, too.
Marsha has a knack for putting a room together in a way that is both pleasing to the eye and functional. She's added decorative touches like sunbursts in the ceiling corners of the main room and stained-glass accent pieces.
She's no stranger to hard work. The floors in the upstairs living area are original, all hand-sanded by Marsha. She also gets credit for a lot of the landscaping in the backyard.
John's knowledge and skills continue to come in handy during the restoration of the bank house, which they expect to take two more years. Two rooms of it, as well as areas of the old general store, will be open to visitors this weekend as part of the Pohatcong History & Heritage Society's 21st annual Historic House Tour.
It's being held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17.
The tour officially begins at Alba Vineyard, which is just up the road at 269 Route 627. Advance tickets for the self-guided tour are available at pohatconghistory.com or by calling 908-387-1493. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 the day of the tour. Tickets are also available at several Phillipsburg-area locations.
There's also a Ride the Winery Train option available. Information may be found at warrencountywinetrain.com.

One minute, Tom Smith was cutting hay in a farm field. The next, he was diving under his house's front deck for cover.
"This was no storm," Smith said Thursday, about 30 minutes after a powerful band swept across central Warren County. "I saw that black cloud coming across the field and it was turning. It was twisting.
"I'm so scared right now."
Smith said he was alone on the 20-acre farm in the 100 block of Route 519 in White Township -- a former dairy farm that now has only four cows and a couple of horses. The barn was blown over and trees and poles were sheared, he said.
Warren County Emergency Management Coordinator Frank Wheatley stopped short of declaring it a tornado. He blamed straight-line winds for damage across the central part of the county until further investigation is done.
Smith said he was still trembling in the aftermath of what he witnessed. The National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning minutes earlier and will be the ones to determine if indeed a twister had touched down.
"The barn is destroyed," said Smith, who leases the property from Pennsylvania-based Talen Energy, formerly PP&L. "It's just like you see in the pictures out West -- destroyed it in a matter of one minute. I just dove for whatever I could. There's not much left."
Smith said the pummeling lasted two to three minutes.
"And then it stopped raining and the sun came out," he said.
Wheatley arrived at the Route 519 barn about 3:30 p.m.
"It's a mess here," he said.
As Wheatley fought traffic minutes earlier on Route 519, he said, "We got hammered."
Sporadic power outages were reported across the county, including at the Warren County Courthouse in Belvidere, which closed because of an outage.
There were "numerous" trees and wires down countywide, Wheatley said. Lot of power poles were down and several transformers were on fire, he said.
From just before 3 p.m. until about 3:20, wires and trees were reported down in Washington, Washington Township, Oxford Township and Mansfield Township and a traffic light was out at Mountain Avenue at Route 57 in Hackettstown, according to the Warren County Department of Public Safety.
The storm hit the county just before 3 p.m. and the tornado warning was over by 3:09 p.m., the National Weather Service said.
There was debris on many roads, some of which was passable, others not, Wheatley said.
"Roads of all kinds are affected," he said.
It could be a awhile before the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, N.J., has a handle on what happened. The weather service will look at storm damage photos and speak with Warren Country officials before deciding to send a storm survey team to figure out if a tornado touched down, meteorologist Sarah Johnson said.
"There was rotation on radar," said meteorologist Mitchell Gaines, also with the weather service. "We had a barn destroyed in White Township, and across the river in Northampton County we had a lot of trees and wires down as well."
But whether a tornado actually touched down will have to wait until Friday, Johnson said. Radar can't confirm that. Authorities need to see the damage to determine if it was straight-line winds or a tornado that left a path of wreckage, she said.

A New Jersey environmental group and two Harmony Township residents have filed suit against the township, saying its proposed 600-acre industrial solar project and electrical substation would impact soil for agriculture, diminish property values and destroy quality of life.
The suit was filed April 21 in New Jersey Superior Court by members of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition and township residents Richard Dalrymple and Manuel Escaleira, whose properties neighbor the proposed project. The group is challenging the Harmony Township Land Use Board’s granting of various land use approvals to Harmony Plains Solar I LLC.
Denver, Colorado-based developer Dakota Power Partners plans to build the solar project on the 600 acres of open space known as Harmony Plains between River Road and Garrison Road. The project includes 150 acres of land owned by the township and the rest is farmland and on the property of some private residences, according to plans by the developer.
The developer’s proposed commercial operations date is by as early as 2022 and the project’s design life is about 30 years, according to plans.
Kelley Smith, township municipal clerk/administrator and land use board secretary/registrar, said the project was approved by the Land Use Board on Jan. 5 and a resolution memorializing the proposal was adopted March 3.
The plaintiffs are seeking a reversal of the board’s approvals and allege due to the coronavirus pandemic, municipal officials rushed approving the project knowing not many residents would be able to attend an in-person meeting and others wouldn’t have the technology able to connect for a Zoom meeting.
Greg Gianforcaro, attorney for the Harmony Land Use Board, said the board heard the application, the meeting was then opened up to the public and after hearing everything, the board then voted to grant the application.
“This is the same process that our board and hundreds of other boards around the state have followed for decades,” Gianforcaro told lehighvalleylive.com.
“No matter what the allegations are that are set forth in the lawsuit, the board never once deviated from their obligations or their responsibilities,” he added.
Among the suits allegations are the following:
Julia Somers, executive director of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition, said she was stunned to learn the approval happened in a single meeting.
“By doing that, they sought to ensure the public’s ability to provide comments was almost extinguished and, in that rush, made sloppy mistakes they likely would not have made if the application was approved in a timely manner,” Somers said.
She told lehighvalleylive.com at issue the most is the project would take out production of much needed agricultural soils for solar. She said solar panels would better be suited on top of roofs of warehouses or along highway medians.
Residents of Harmony have created the community action group, the Harmony Chapter of the Citizens for Sustainable Development, working in opposition of the project. That group has joined the New Jersey Highlands Coalition as a member organization and also is working with the New Jersey Conservation Foundation.
The organizations say they are deeply concerned by recent statewide proposals to build utility-scale, solar power facilities on farmland with prime agricultural soils, of which the Harmony site would be one of the first in New Jersey. The state, the groups say, has invested heavily over the past few decades in preserving and protecting high-quality farmland, and the coalition and the conservation foundation joined many other groups who see a profound conflict between these uses.
Dalrymple argued the project is proposed on prime farmland in a residential area, with some property owned by the township, and is a limited and nonrenewable resource.
“To squander it is to irretrievably destroy our proud historic heritage as a farming community,” Dalrymple said. “As it concerns all residents, it also should have been a ballot question, and could have waited until the post-COVID period when in-person township meetings resume.”
Resident Lois Markle’s property also neighbors the proposed solar project. She also expressed frustration over the plans, saying many residents are against the proposal.
“Who does our committee represent, if not us, their constituency?,” she asked. “Our highly-productive farms help feed America. Destroying our farmlands is also destroying our agrarian heritage, of which we are extremely proud.”
Escaleira, one of the plaintiffs, said the project would ravish prime farmland, alter picturesque scenery, compromise natural habitat, and devalue property values. He blasted municipal officials, echoing he feels they took advantage of residents who wouldn’t be able to attend the in-person meetings.
“They chose to have their meetings through Zoom, knowing well this would cause difficulty for some of us,” Escaleira said. “A lot of our elderly residents don’t have computers, or those who do don’t really know how to navigate that well beyond their routine use. They took advantage of this and succeeded in railroading our town.”
Tom Gilbert, campaign director for NJ Conservation Foundation and Rethink Energy N.J., called the project the “poster child” for poor siting.
“We should not be putting massive solar arrays on our best farmland soils within ‘agricultural development areas and should instead steer solar to brown fields, landfills, rooftops, parking lots and marginal lands, as the state Energy Master Plan suggests,” he said.
Dakota Power Partners currently is the only developer of utility-scale solar projects in New Jersey with approximately a dozen projects under development, representing approximately $1 billion in planned investments, according to project plans.

Want to avoid the crowds in New Jersey’s popular Delaware River towns? Consider the lesser-known Milford, a quaint hamlet just north of Frenchtown. Milford—named for its 18th-century riverfront grist mill—boasts plenty of charm without the crowds.
A stroll down Bridge Street showcases Milford’s 19th- and 20th-century buildings, which now house shops like Riverside Treasures (23 Bridge Street), a boutique filled with a mix of jewelry, clothing and works by local artists; and Allen’s Antiques (49 Bridge Street), brimming with antiques, collectibles and vintage furniture.
Longtime favorite restaurants include the Milford House (92 Water Street), a new incarnation of the town’s beloved Milford Oyster House; it’s situated in an old stone mill. The Olde Ship Inn, Jersey’s first microbrewery—opened in 1985—is now the Descendants Brewing Company at the Olde Ship Inn (61 Bridge Street). It’s still the best place in town to enjoy a cold beer.
Also new is Canal House Station (2 Bridge Street), a restaurant and café showcasing fresh, local ingredients. Opened in July in an abandoned railroad station originally built in 1870, Canal House is the brainchild of Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer, James Beard Award-winning cookbook authors who moved upstream from their Lambertville culinary studio to open their first restaurant in Milford.
Steps from Canal House is the teal-colored bridge that connects Milford to Upper Black Eddy in Pennsylvania. Pedestrians are welcome to cross the bridge. From the other side, take in the view of colorful hills and cliffs that rise from Milford’s downtown. For the energetic, a hike in the Thomas F. Breden Preserve at Milford Bluffs provides some of the best views over the Delaware River. The hiking trail begins off Milford Warren Glen Road at the northern end of town.
Learn more about the town’s history on October 6, when the Milford Historical Society hosts a free walking tour; the group will meet at 1:30 pm at the bridge.
For foodies, the renowned Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse (369 Stamets Road) is a five-minute drive away. The farm hosts $5 tours at 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. They include a short hike to the pastures, where cows roam and graze, and end with a tasting of the grass-fed, raw-milk cheeses and breads baked in the wood-fired hearth. Even without a tour, you can taste the cheeses in the shop, open Wednesday–Sunday.
End the day with a wine tasting at Alba Vineyard (269 County Road 627), 15 minutes from downtown Milford in the village of Finesville. The wines can be enjoyed in the new tasting room overlooking the surrounding hillside vineyards.
