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 Florham 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 Florham 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:

It should have been a wake-up call for the Jets when Mekhi Becton fell to the ground Monday morning and grabbed at his surgic...
But on Monday night, when it became clear that Becton’s injury was worse than initially expected – a source confirmed that Becton suffered a new injury to the knee that was more concerning – it should have felt as if a five-alarm fire had been called into the team’s Florham Park facility.
They need help on the offensive line. And GM Joe Douglas needs to deliver it soon.
Before we go any further, let’s not forget about Becton and the gut-wrenching position he is in given the latest news. By all accounts, he did everything within his power to get himself ready for the 2022 season.
Jets coach Robert Saleh said Becton, 23, stayed at the team’s facility during the entire break between offseason workouts and training camp. Nearly a year since the last time since he set foot on the field for a practice or a game, he pushed through two blazingly hot weeks of training camp practice, only for it all to come crashing down less than a few days before the first preseason game.
After missing 18 games in his first two seasons because of injury, there is concern that Becton is going to miss many more in 2022 according to multiple reports. This is a nightmare for the 2020 first-round pick, and it’s impossible not to feel for him.
But the truth was, even before Becton’s latest injury, the Jets needed more help and depth on the offensive line. And now that Becton is in danger of missing significant time, the sense of urgency should only be ratcheted up further.
Going into the regular season without a proven offensive tackle would be reckless, considering what’s at stake this year.
And that’s why they need to do everything in their power to sign the guy they’ve been flirting with in recent days.
Duane Brown, a 15-year veteran who made the Pro Bowl for the fifth time last year, had a free-agent visit with the Jets on Saturday at the Green and White practice. They should have made it a point to sign him even before Becton went down with his latest injury.
Want to bet on the NFL?
There’s too much at stake this season for them not to.
Quarterback Zach Wilson struggled as a rookie and now he’s facing a second year that feels like it might be make-or-break. If the Jets can’t protect him, it’ll be impossible to evaluate if Wilson is the quarterback of the team’s future.
Relying on Becton, given his injury history, would have been reckless.
But the Jets, if you believe what they say publicly, would have been willing to do that.
“We really do like our backup situation,” Saleh said Monday, noting that their top backup tackle, Conor McDermott was expected to return from his low-ankle injury in next week or two. “I know McDermott hurt, but he’ll be back, he’ll be fine. He’s started games for us, Chuma’s [Edoga] started games for us. Getting a guy like Duane Brown is kind of being spoiled in a sense of just having so much great talent at one position.
But after the news on Becton on Monday night, adding a guy like Brown is no longer a luxury. It’s a necessity.

What’s quainter than a summer evening outdoors with a Shakespearean romance? Not a thing! So if that formula presents itself, why mess with success?
This seems to be the spirit guiding Eleanor Holdridge’s production for “Much Ado About Nothing” as the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s annual outdoor production at Saint Elizabeth University in Morristown (the stage is technically in Florham Park). The show is a right-down-the-middle “Much Ado”: no fuss, no risks, no grand interpretive moves, no overbearing directorial hand.
And it works. Charming, lively, and fun, this is a “Much Ado” tailor-made for an evening in the park with a cocktail. Sure there’s room for theatergoers to desire something boundary-pushing, something that offers some productive new insight on a very familiar classic. In some ways, trotting out a straightforward classic is the easy, conservative move.
But sometimes light, conservative, and familiar are the precise menu items for success, and if ever that is true it must be on a summer evening in the park. With no interest in getting out of its lane, this “Much Ado” is safe and pleasant.
Perhaps this strategy is more fitting for “Much Ado” than similar summer Shakespeare fare like “As You Like It,” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” or “Twelfth Night.” The fun at the heart of those plays comes as an escape from early-play tension that looms over the comedies even though we are well aware that the plays’ conclusions will bring happy resolutions. But “Much Ado” opens with a collective sigh of relief: the general Don Pedro (James Michael Reilly) has returned from the war with almost a full retinue (we learn in the opening moments that those lost in the war are “few of any sort, and none of name,” which is quickly announced as Don Pedro returning with “full numbers”: just don’t tell that to the families of the dead who are of neither sort nor name). He and his men arrive at the estate of Leonato (Raphael Nash Thompson), who insist the crew stay, relax, and celebrate their great victories.
So the entire play proceeds from a place of release and joy: danger is past, and the play’s cast is free to revel. Dances are held, love blooms, wit is bandied about, tension arises and dissipates, and almost everybody lives happily ever after.
Holdridge’s direction and cast keep the play fun and light throughout, although it must be said that one of the joys of this annual staging is seeing how the show will respond to the inevitable intermittent interruptions from the nearby Morristown Airport, and this year’s efforts were lackluster.
Jesmille Darbouze’s Beatrice is sharp and merry in her place “on the windy side of care,” and Benjamin Eakeley’s Benedick is a fine counterpoint to Beatrice and a carefree bachelor of his own. Darbouze and Eakeley evolve their characters nicely as Shakespeare gradually injects love to undercut their respective self-assuredness. Michael Stewart Allen’s Dogberry is a delightful buffoon, and Reilly’s Don Pedro is stately and composed. All of this plays out on in the courtyard of a lovely villa designed by Charlie Calvert.
These are textbook versions of age-old characters in a play that has enjoyed sustained popularity precisely for its lighthearted fun. Holdridge’s production gets to the heart of “Much Ado,” and gives us a warm, cozy rendition.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Every moment at New York Jets training camp is a learning opportunity.
Wide receiver Corey Davis met with Garrett Wilson on the sidelines during the live period, pantomiming route-running techniques. Newly added tight end Tyler Conklin talked with third-round pick Jeremy Ruckert as the offense ran plays in the red zone. During special teams period, D.J. Reed brought Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner and two coaches over to the corner of the end zone to work on shedding blocks and pursuing runners.
While these might seem typical for most NFL teams, it’s been a particular new point of emphasis for the Jets this offseason. At the center of these mentoring moments are the four rookies – Gardner, Wilson, defensive end Jermaine Johnson II and running back Breece Hall—all selected in the top 35 picks of this year’s NFL draft.
This isn’t the first major year the Jets have counted on rookies to make a major impact. In 2021, Jets rookies were second only to those of Detroit Lions in total number of snaps played. Most of these reps came from rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, offensive guard Alijah Vera-Tucker, running backs Michael Carter and Ty Johnson and an exceptionally young secondary built on Day 3 draft picks.
The only difference? Several members of the 2021 class were thrust into starting roles, forced to fill spots on a rebuilding roster. This year’s top rookies, however, are competing for starting spots on a much stronger team. With head coach Robert Saleh and his staff entering their second year, this class also has the benefit of leaning on others.
“When you’re a rookie in a first-year system, it’s hard to lean on any of the other players because they are still learning the system too,” said Jets offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, comparing the rookie situations of Wilson and second-year receiver Elijah Moore. “You can obviously get some nuggets and stuff like that, and how it’s going to be on the field, but Elijah really didn’t have anyone to ask the nuances of questions last year.”
“Now, Garrett gets to pick off of Elijah and Corey, not just from a ‘how do I get stuff done on the field,’ but also from the schematic standpoint.”
Expectations—at least from outside—have been high for these rookies. The first-year players say they are ready to rise to the occasion.
“I know none of us have an issue with those expectations,” said rookie defensive end Jermaine Johnson II of the “big expectations” placed on the Jets' three first-rounders. “We all have the same mindset, just being the best teammates we can. We’re rookies, so we’ve got to earn our keep, especially to have a voice on this team. That comes with doing things the right way, going 110%, and being a good teammate. We’re all on that track.”
This class has already managed to make some great first impressions. Take Johnson II, who flashed his hand speed and pass rush moves against veteran tackles in one-on-ones. Or Hall, who has dominated both as a rusher and a pass-catcher during team periods. Garrett Wilson has managed to create consistent separation from cornerbacks in seven-on-seven sessions off his exceptional route-running.
This is a far cry from last year’s rookies, who joined a barren roster off the heels of a 2-14 2020 season and were thrust into the opportunity out of necessity regardless of whether they were ready.
"I think all of us coming in last year, kind of being thrown into the fire was good,” cornerback Michael Carter II told USA TODAY Sports. “Because we all made our mistakes. We all had our ups and downs, too. Now, it's only up from here for us. I think everybody is super hungry because everybody's so young and ready to prove themselves."
The growing pains were evident all throughout last season. Zach Wilson finished his rookie campaign with the lowest completion percentage (55.6%) and third-lowest yards per attempt (6.1) of any starting quarterback. Vera-Tucker had 24 blown blocks and allowed four of the Jets’ 53 sacks, according to Sports Info Solutions. The Jets' secondary allowed the third-most passing yards per game (259.4), third-highest completion percentage (68.3%) and fourth-highest yards per pass attempt (7.5) last year, all of which contributed to New York’s 4-13 record in 2021.
Now, with a season under their belt, this group of second-year players is ready to step up to help this group of rookies rise to the occasion. For Carter, it’s part of establishing a new precedent and atmosphere within the Jets organization.
“[Hall] asks a lot of questions,” said Carter. “That’s something I could really appreciate. When I came in, I did the same thing. Man, [Tevin Coleman] probably was so tired of me, but he appreciated me and took me in.”
“So it’s only right I do that, because we’re just passing that on. That’s the culture we’re gonna build.”
The impact of that culture already seems evident, even in its early stages. The sidelines of training camp are littered with small, huddled circles where players talk intently about scheme and technique.
The results are visible, too. When Moore reeled in a one-handed catch along the sideline that later went viral, Carter II was the player a half-step behind in coverage. The next series, Moore was targeted on a route in the exact same place along the sideline, only to have Gardner break up the pass with tight coverage and great body positioning.
The first to run over and celebrate Gardner’s big play? Carter II.
While the sophomore players have taken leadership roles working with this rookie class, they aren’t the only ones to do so. One of the biggest points of emphasis for the Jets this offseason was to complement their young talent with veteran leadership, like Reed , the former Seattle Seahawks cornerback who has worked extensively with Gardner, along with the rest of the defensive backs, early in camp.
Despite Reed being just 25, his four years of NFL experience make him one of the most senior members of this Jets cornerback room. What can he bring to such a young group?
“Experience, grit, toughness, mindset,” Saleh said. “Obviously knowledge of just understanding formations and releases and how offenses are trying to attack. He’s a seasoned vet and does things the right way. He is a warrior mentally; he does everything the right way.”
None of these players exist in a vacuum. As a fully-realized, cohesive unit, the rookies and veterans all come together to make the group better. In a way, the rookies who were thrust into starting roles last year are now well-complemented by this year's rookies.
While Carter was a valuable lead back for the Jets last year, he missed three games due to injury. At North Carolina, he was accustomed to sharing the load alongside Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams. Hall, on the other hand, managed over 200 more touches than Carter in his collegiate career despite playing only three years to Carter's four. Sliding Carter back into a secondary role behind Hall could allow Carter to regain his optimal role from his college days.
Garrett Wilson’s skill set and versatility, meanwhile, give Moore the option to line up on the outside, where he spent most of his time last season, or in the slot, where he thrived during his time at Mississippi.
The Jets' secondary obviously had its struggles last year, but one of the the unit's biggest weaknesses was not having an elite corner to cover top-end receiving talent. Gardner looks to change that. His 6-foot-3, 200-pound build already makes him stand out among the Jets cornerbacks. Saleh touted his ability to play in both man and zone coverage. Gardner also boasts one impressive stat: throughout his three years at Cincinnati, he never allowed a single touchdown.
"Last year, I'd say we were very almost there," said second-year cornerback Brandin Echols. "But this year, I feel like with the addition of D.J. Reed, Sauce Gardner, and some of the safeties that we brought in, now we're gonna be a problem for a lot of teams this year. ... All of us on the field together, we're going to be a wrecking ball."
Echols also had some advice for Gardner, which could easily be applied to any rookie on the roster.
“Just don’t get complacent, and ball. Do what you was born to do.”
