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 Franklin Lakes, 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 Franklin Lakes, 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:

FRANKLIN LAKES — Ramapo has thrived off momentum and triumphed on emotion this season.
It all started to come together for the Raiders when they stunned top-seeded Don Bosco, 1-0, in the Bergen County Tournament quarterfinals on May 21.
Since then, the Franklin Lakes school has been playing its best baseball at the right time.
A big reason for Ramapo’s success has been its starting pitching, led by junior Niko Logothetis. In a span of a week, the righty pitched in all four state playoff games and helped the Raiders reach heights they haven’t seen in years.
On Friday, Logothetis was at it again, this time leading Ramapo to a 3-2 win over Montville in the North 1, Group 3 title game.
Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.
“We knew at the start of the season that we were a team that can cause damage, but it was a bit of a rollercoaster in the beginning," said Logothetis, who threw a complete game Friday. "Things started to click for us after that win. We’re going to keep this train rolling.”
Logothetis threw 99 pitches over seven innings, striking out eight and giving up eight hits.
Sophomore Payne Teel had the game-winning hit in the third inning when he laced a line drive single to right field on a 1-2 count, scoring Connor Saslow and Jack Klein.
Montville ace Ian Kaiser threw 100 pitches in six innings, surrendering three hits and three runs (two earned) with seven strikeouts and two walks.
Ramapo (19-14) took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when junior Jake Lopez grounded out to first base with two outs, scoring Teel from third.
“I was sitting fastball to be honest. He [Kaiser] didn’t have great control of his slider. He throws a hard fastball,” Teel said. “I fouled a few pitches off and got a 10-pitch at bat and finally got one over the first baseman’s head. It was a great feeling.”
Montville (21-9) tied it in the second when Hunter Force scored on a fielder’s choice groundout by Ryan Wehrle.
The Mustangs briefly took a 2-1 lead in the third inning on a home run by Logan Force to right-center field.
“We’ve had the same strategy since we played Don Bosco. We’ve been struggling with strikeouts for a good portion of the year and all we wanted to do offensively was put the ball in play. Niko attacked the zone and trusted his defense,” Ramapo coach Garrison Ward said.
“We didn’t have an identity all year. We figured out that we are streaky. But we said to ourselves we’re going to go out there and play our tails off.”
Ramapo is a state sectional champion for the first time since 2005.
The Raiders advance to Monday's Group 3 semifinals to play Cranford (24-4). The Cougars defeated Millburn, 10-8 in the North 2, Group 3 final on Friday.
Ramapo has won four straight games and has outscored its opponents, 26-10 during that span.
? Logothetis retired 10 of the final 11 batters he faced.
? Ramapo had three hits – Klein, Teel and JT Psirogianes.
? Montville had eight hits.
? Montville’s Christian Zurawlow had a game-high two hits.
“We knew they were a great team and were hot. We lost to them last year in the first round of the state tournament. It was a revenge game for us. I gained confidence as the game went on. I was able to keep my composure. I felt good and I had my stuff.” – Logothetis
“We’ve come together as a team the last few weeks. We’ve been a lot louder in the dugout and we’ve hit the ball a lot better. It’s our confidence and that’s made a difference.” – Teel

It's obviously not a guarantee by any means that former Rutgers Men's Basketball forward Ron Harper Jr. will be selected in the 2022 NBA Draft tonight, Thursday, at 8:00 p.m. on ESPN.
Harper Jr., who will be at home in Franklin Lakes, N.J. watching the draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., is projected to potentially be picked somewhere in the later portion of the second round. However, mock drafts and experts aren't too sure it will come to fruition for the 6-foot-5 forward who has since dropped weight over the last coupe of months.
Per RealGM, Rutgers has had 23 players drafted since 1950. The most recent was Hamady N'Diaye in 2010, though he didn't last too long. But all of them didn't make it to the NBA. Basketball reference players lists 14 players from Rutgers ever stepping on the court at the highest level of hoops.
The website counts Eugene Omoruyi, who transferred to Oregon after three years with the Scarlet Knights. Omoruyi wasn't drafted, but did see brief time with the Dallas Mavericks this past season and in the G-League before a season-ending injury in December.
It's been a long time since Rutgers held a true presence in the NBA, and Harper Jr. has a chance to break the 12-year drought tonight. Recent players such as Corey Sanders, CJ Gettys, Kadeem Jack, Myles Mack, Jerome Seagers, Akwasi Yeboah, Mike Rosario are or were playing in the G-League or overseas in various countries playing professional basketball. Despite how good some of them were, they didn't get much of a sniff at the NBA.
Harper Jr. has had several workouts and meetings with teams such as the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Sacramento Kings, Charlotte Hornets, Portland Trail Blazers, and Jazz to name a bunch.
He averaged 15.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, shot 39.8% on 3-pointers and 44% overall from the floor as a senior for Rutgers as it made the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row. He also made several clutch shots throughout the year.
You just need one team to like you at the end of the day, and Harper Jr., whose dad, Ron Harper Sr., won five NBA championships, has the bloodlines for a team to take a chance. Harper may or may not get drafted. He may or may not latch on somewhere as an undrafted free agent.
Either way, Harper Jr. is looking to bring back Rutgers to the NBA.

In 1922, comedienne Fanny Brice was singing "My Man," Prohibition was 2 years old and Franklin Lakes was "born" on March 11.
One hundred years later, the borough is celebrating its centennial year with a series of events under the slogan “Pride in Our Past, Faith in Our Future.”
Mayor Frank Bivona acknowledged "contributions from dozens of resident volunteers and support from our local sponsors" in putting together a year's worth of celebratory events.
“Franklin Lakes’ centennial anniversary year is going to be an exciting time highlighted by many special events," Bivona said. "We are proud of our history and the town we have become, and we look forward with excitement towars our future.”
Community Director Dina Robinson is heading up the centennial celebration team, which has its own website, franklinlakescentennial.com, to keep residents informed of upcoming events, including:
Arcadia Publishing is scheduled to publish “Franklin Lakes, Images of America” in May. The book will be available for purchase online through the borough’s centennial website and in local stores.
The Franklin Lakes Historical Society will host a series of guided tours and lectures with the Franklin Lakes Public Library.
The borough is named for William Franklin, son of Founding Father Benjamin Franklin. He was the last Colonial governor of New Jersey, from 1763 to 1776, but never lived in what is now Franklin Lakes.
Unlike his father, William Franklin remained a Loyalist throughout the American Revolutionary War. He was held under house arrest from 1776 to 1778 and remained a leader of the British cause until he exiled himself to London in 1782.
The former Franklin Township has a tangled history. It included all of northwest Bergen County west of the Saddle River when it was created in 1772. In 1849, the northern half of Franklin Township was broken off to create Ho-Ho-Kus Township (later Mahwah, Ramsey and parts of Allendale and Upper Saddle River).
Story continues below gallery
This left Franklin Township with what are now Oakland, Franklin Lakes, Wyckoff, and parts of Allendale, Waldwick, Midland Park and Ridgewood.
Midland Park created a separate borough in 1894, Oakland in 1902. Franklin Lakes created its borough on March 11, 1922, with William Pulis as its first mayor.
What was left of Franklin Township was renamed Wyckoff in 1926.
Franklin Township began as a Dutch farming community in the 1700s. The borough retains remnants of at least nine pre-1800 homes, possibly the oldest being the 1710 Van Koert-Winters House at 615 Franklin Ave.
Franklin Avenue itself originated as an Indian trail across land they referred to as "Campgaw." The road was surveyed by George Washington's mapmaker Robert Erskine during the Revolutionary War.
The borough also derived its name from its many lakes and ponds, most notably Franklin Lake, known to the area's Lenape Indians as Michanagrape. The lake changed names several times — Christian Pool, Great Pond, Big Pond and Crystal Pool — before it became Franklin Lake in the late 1800s.
What is now the 147-acre Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve originated in 1919 when the Molly Ann Brook was dammed to create the Haledon Reservoir. It provided drinking water to North Haledon, Haledon and Prospect Park. The reservoir fell into disuse, and it was purchased by Franklin Lakes with Green Acres funding in 2006, the largest land acquisition in the borough's history. It opened for public passive recreational use in 2011.
The waterways also powered a variety of mills, the first believed to be Daniel Youman's grist mill at 840 Franklin Lake Road.
Franklin Lakes was sending its students in grades nine to 12 to Ramsey High School until the district announced that it would not accept non-district students after its 1957-58 school year. Franklin Lakes, Oakland and Wyckoff approved creation of a regional high school district in 1954. Ramapo High School opened in Franklin Lakes in 1957, followed by Indian Hills High School in Oakland in 1960.

Wow. This weekend's forecast really checks all the boxes. It will be warm, but not too hot. It will be humid, but not steamy. Bright skies will accompany dry weather. A delightful sea breeze will keep the coast cooler, keeping beaches busy. And rain stays away until early next week.
Grab the sunglasses and sunscreen, stay hydrated and cool, and enjoy.
We are battling some fog to begin the day, a symptom of Thursday's rain and the continuing humidity in the air. Visibility has been particularly low around the far northern (Sussex) and southern (Millville and Wildwood) corners of the state.
By 8 or 9 a.m., fog will be done. And the rest of your Friday will be fantastic.
Under mostly to partly sunny skies, temperatures will warm into the lower 80s across most of the state. That is right on the normal high for late June.
Of course, the sea breeze "machine" is a big deal in the forecast this time of year. Sunshine warms up the land mass faster than the ocean. As long as the background wind isn't too strong, that heating difference causes a local circulation to set up. And that's how we get the refreshing easterly breeze that keeps beaches cooler and comfortable than inland areas.
Coastal areas — generally along and east of the Garden State Parkway — will probably see lower to mid 70s Friday afternoon, as that sea breeze kicks in.
If you're going to make it a beach day, be sure to lather up on sunscreen. And keep in mind, we have a Moderate risk of rip currents posted along the Jersey Shore for one more day.
Although I had previously included a shower chance in Friday's forecast, I've ultimate decided to keep it dry. A couple models try to pop a sprinkle Friday evening, but I'm not buying it. Enjoy the dry, seasonably warm weather.
Friday night looks good too. Clear and quiet, with just a hint of stickiness in the air. Low temperatures will bottom out in the mid 60s. Also pretty typical for this point in the season.
Temperatures are going to cook. Humidity levels will be moderate — not tropical or dangerous, but certainly enough to make you sweat. But as long as you like it warm and summery, you'll love the weekend forecast.
Saturday will push into the upper 80s across interior New Jersey, with 70s at the Jersey Shore. It will be sunny and dry, with a light southwest breeze. To quote Forrest Gump: "That's all I have to say about that."
Sunday looks like the hotter day of the weekend, with inland highs averaging 90 degrees. But because dew points will be reasonable, we do not have to ring alarm bells for potentially dangerous heat — the "heat index" (the "feels like" temperature) will be close to the actual air temperature.
The only change for Sunday is the introduction of clouds in the afternoon. Still a nice summer day.
Some guidance pushes in a shower late Sunday night. (Probably after Midnight, so that would technically be Monday.)
Monday, we get wet. It's the only rain chance left in the month of June for New Jersey, as a cold front slowly sinks from northwest to southeast.
And "slowly" is the key word there. It looks like this boundary is going to take all day to make it's pass.
The end result: About 6 hours of rain for any given location, during the daytime hours on Monday. Areas north and west would be wettest in the morning. Areas south and east would be wettest in the afternoon.
While I'm not worried about severe wind or flooding, there could be some rumbles of thunder Monday. (Remember: By definition, every thunderstorm contains lightning. Therefore, every thunderstorm is potentially dangerous.)
High temperatures on Monday will depend largely on the timing of the rain. I've settled on a range between the lower 70s (North Jersey) and 80-ish (South Jersey).
Behind the front will come a slight cooldown. Even more prominent will be the "drydown" — a significant (although temporary) drop in humidity.
So next week, we flip right back to awesome weather. Clouds to sun and near 80 on Tuesday. Mostly sunny and lower 80s on Wednesday. Mostly sunny and mid-upper 80s on Thursday.
Our next opportunity for rain could come at the start of the 4th of July Weekend, late next week. But it's still too early and models are still too scatterbrained to make a confident call on that.
Have a wonderful weekend!
