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:

A familiar Warren County restaurant is moving into the 6,000-square-foot building that once occupied Quaker Steak & Lube in Pohatcong Township.
Stone Tavern, previously known as “Desiderio’s Stone Tavern,” plans to open in the space, 1304 Route 22, on June 17. It’s sat vacant for nearly two years.
Quaker Steak & Lube shuttered all its New Jersey locations in early summer 2020 after opening the regional site in August 2014. The former Desiderio’s Stone Tavern closed its Washington Township location along Route 31 in October 2021 to prepare for a relocation.
Owner Stephen Desiderio of Branchburg, Somerset County told lehighvalleylive.com he was looking for a larger space to accommodate more patrons. The previous Washington building was about 4,000 square feet and didn’t have a canopied outdoor bar like the Quaker Steak & Lube site.
Desiderio’s Stone Tavern opened initially in March 2019. The concept, Desiderio said, has always been a gathering spot among friends, family and regulars. The menu is known for its wood fired steaks, burgers, seafood choices, and Italian specialties. Desiderio plans to add a selection of various pizzas and dinner specials to the mix in Pohatcong, as well as offer catering.
The building has been undergoing both interior and exterior renovations for the past four months. Inside, there’s seating for 200 people, including enough for 30 people at a large bar. Outdoors, there’s seating on the patio and exterior bar for another 75 people. The restaurant will have a 20-beer tap system and new to the Pohatcong location will be a variety of frozen alcoholic beverages on the bar menu.
There’s additionally increased parking compared to the Washington location. There’ll be a lineup of musical acts and other events on select weekends and evenings. There’s also room for private parties.
Desiderio said he plans to hire a total of 30 full-time and part-time employees.
Despite inflation and food shortage supplies, Desiderio said he is working to keep menu prices affordable.
“As most people are aware, all food prices have increased since the pandemic and subsequent lack of inventory,” he said. “We will not compromise on quality, but are sensitive to the current financial situation and are always considerate of our clients when setting prices.”
Desiderio has a family background in the restaurant industry for nearly three decades. He opened his first pizzeria, Hampton Pizza, in Hampton, Hunterdon County in January 1994. Since then, Desiderio has owned more than a half dozen other pizzerias throughout Warren, Somerset and Hunterdon counties.
“My mother taught me how to cook at a young age and shared our family recipes with me,” he said.
Desiderio isn’t ruling out any future plans to open another Stone Tavern location in the Lehigh Valley. The focus right now, however, is getting the Pohatcong site open and thriving, he said.
“That is always an option,” Desiderio said about expanding.
Hours for Stone Tavern will be from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday to Thursday; and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
The tavern sits in a shopping center that also has a Wawa, Walmart Supercenter, and White Castle. It’s near Pohatcong Plaza, which welcomed Mountain Dudes earlier this year in the former Ruby Tuesday space. That shopping center also houses Tractor Supply Co., which in November 2021 announced it would be moving into the space vacated by Toys ‘R’ Us, as well as several other tenants, including HomeGoods; Regal Cinemas; Marshalls; and Hobby Lobby.

New Jersey is about a year into Gov. Phil Murphy’s Energy Master Plan that commits to 100% clean energy statewide by 2050.
A new proposal in the Phillipsburg area aims to help reach the state goal of accelerating renewable energy development.
Phoebus Fund LLC, based in Williamstown, Gloucester County, proposes installing a 22-megawatt solar power array on farmland along the 1700 block of Belvidere Road in Lopatcong Township.
The proposal is unique in that the panels are installed 15 to 17 feet above the ground, allowing the majority of the land to continue to be farmed, according to Andrew Kennedy, a partner at Phoebus Fund. It’s a concept known as agrivoltaics, and has been used in Italy, Germany, Japan and Arizona, he said.
“We can grow just about anything underneath of these panels,” Kennedy said. “In addition, our equipment acts as the basis for irrigation and other types of farm equipment, allowing the farm to not only continue in operations but actually improve over time.”
Kennedy described the proposal in a presentation Tuesday to Phillipsburg Town Council. Phoebus Fund is looking for the town to enter into a power-purchase agreement for electricity from the array, through a unique legal structure in New Jersey called remote net metering that is available to public entities.
“What it allows us to do is sell the power to a public entity through the net metering program from sites that are not located on currently owned public entity property,” Kennedy said.
Benefits to the town include securing a clean energy source at projected savings of close to 40% compared to current municipal electricity costs, Kennedy said. That works out to about $200,000 to $230,000 in annual savings, he said.
The property’s farmer, in turn, gets a diversified income source through agreeing to host the panels. The only land that’s lost to farming is in a series of maintenance strips alongside the panels.
Phoebus Fund is working on 62 megawatts of solar power generation across JCP&L’s territory, representing an investment of about $110 million. All told, the company projects creating about 2,100 prevailing-wage construction jobs in Warren County alone, in addition to ongoing jobs for management and maintenance of the sites, Kennedy said.
Town council took no action on the proposal, but got some questions answered including about the longevity of the panels. They’re warrantied to maintain at least 90% of their potential production for 25 years, and are 98% recyclable, Kennedy said in response to a question from Councilwoman Danielle DeGerolamo.
Rob Bengivenga Jr., Phillipsburg’s business administrator, told lehighvalleylive.com there’s no timeline to commit to the proposal and that the town is doing its due-diligence investigation into the idea.
“We want to make sure that Phillipsburg has no risk and only has a benefit,” he said.
Kennedy also pitched the idea to Lopatcong Township Council. No decision has been made there either, said Mayor James Mengucci.
“Quite frankly I found it interesting myself,” Mengucci said. “It’s definitely something new.”
According to Kennedy, New Jersey will need to install about 1,000 megawatts of solar power annually for the next 15 years, then 400 megawatts a year after that, to meet the governor’s goal. Last year, the state saw about 200 megawatts of solar power installed, Kennedy said.
“In conjunction with public entities, we look forward to actively working towards meeting New Jersey’s clean energy objectives while simultaneously supporting the New Jersey economy, creating local jobs and keeping the financial benefit of solar power savings at home,” he said.

New Jersey residents may be limited in terms of where they can go this holiday weekend, but not in terms of what they can drink.
In addition to liquor stores, which Gov. Phil Murphy deemed to be essential businesses during the coronavirus lockdown, people can continue to purchase alcohol from their local breweries, distilleries and wineries. Several of these businesses remain open to the public, but New Jersey residents can better practice social distancing and protect their own health by choosing their delivery or pickup services.

LAMBERTVILLE -- In recognition of the 60th anniversary of the worst flood ever recorded along the Delaware River, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today reissued a brief account of the flood as recorded in the agency's 1955 annual report:"The most devastating flood of the Delaware River, ever recorded, occurred on August 19 and 20, 1955, presenting many new and challenging problems for the Commission and its Administrative and Engineering St...
LAMBERTVILLE -- In recognition of the 60th anniversary of the worst flood ever recorded along the Delaware River, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission today reissued a brief account of the flood as recorded in the agency's 1955 annual report:
"The most devastating flood of the Delaware River, ever recorded, occurred on August 19 and 20, 1955, presenting many new and challenging problems for the Commission and its Administrative and Engineering Staffs. The United States Weather Bureau had the following explanation of the great flood of the Delaware River. 'The warm moist air mass that had covered this area for days was penetrated by Hurricane 'Diane,' which weakened, as its low pressure area moved rapidly from Northern Virginia to Cape Cod. An effect was to force the warm air higher, where it cooled quickly and was unable to hold its moisture. The ground was already drenched from Hurricane 'Connie' and there was no place for water to go except in run-offs in tributary creeks of the Delaware and other rivers.'
"The flood water destroyed four free bridges and caused considerable damage to others. Bridges which were damaged have been partially or totally repaired and opened to traffic. One of the bridges destroyed has been replaced by a temporary Bailey type structure. Another is being replaced by a temporary Bailey structure. That latter bridge between Easton and Phillipsburg will be opened for traffic sometime in March 1956.
"The Commission's high level toll structures were closed for a short period of time as access to the structures was cut off by inundated conditions of state and county highways, and municipal streets. It is worthy to note that the devastating flood did not damage any of the five toll bridges. Minor damage was done to the Pennsylvania approach to the Easton-Phillipsburg (Toll) Bridge. The Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge was opened to traffic during the entire flood period and for a few hours was the only river crossing, under control of the Commission, open to traffic."
The closure periods at the Commission-controlled, non-toll vehicular bridges in service at the time of the 1955 flood were recorded in the annual report as follows:
* Lower Trenton ("Trenton Makes") - closed on account of flood August 19 to August 22.
* Calhoun Street - (closed at the time of the flood) closed on account of construction of East-West Highway (now signed as Route 29 in Trenton) August 8, 1955 to August 31, 1955.
* Yardley-Wilburtha - bridge destroyed, flood August 19-20, 1955.
* Washington Crossing - bridge closed on account of flood damages August 19, 1955 to November 17, 1955.
* Lambertville-New Hope - bridge closed on account of flood damages August 19, 1955 to September 22, 1955.
* Centre Bridge-Stockton - closed on account of flood, August 19, 1955 to August 21, 1955.
* Point Pleasant-Byram - bridge destroyed, flood August 19-20, 1955.
* Uhlerstown-Frenchtown - closed on account of flood, August 19, 1955 to August 22, 1955.
* Upper Black Eddy-Milford - closed on account of flood, August 19, 1955 to August 22, 1955
* Riegelsville - closed on account of flood, August 19, 1955 to August 21, 1955
* Easton-Phillipsburg (Northampton Street) - closed on account of flood, August 19, 1955. One span destroyed. Not repaired to December 31, 1955.
* Portland-Columbia (reportedly the longest remaining wooden covered bridge in United States at that time) - bridge destroyed, flood of August 19-20, 1955.
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed by Pennsylvania and New Jersey in 1934. It operates seven toll bridges and 13 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. The bridges carried about 138.2 million cars and trucks in 2014.
