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 Hamburg, 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 Hamburg, 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:

The Township’s biggest event of the year, Wayne Day is scheduled for Sunday, September 18th and will be held behind Town Hall on the Wayne Valley High School practice fields.
What is Wayne Day? According to www.WayneDay.com, the event “is a day of fun and entertainment that was created for the purpose of bringing the Township residents together to learn more about our community and the many things that our Township has to offer. This is the day to come out with your entire family and enjoy yourselves...rides are very inexpensive, food prices are as low as possible and the rest of the attractions are all FREE!!!”
Family AG Days, which kicked off on June 26th, will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on alternating Sundays this summer; July 24th, August 7th, August 21st, September 11th, September 25th, and October 9th. The Family AG Days will be held on the grounds of the Wayne Museum at 533 Berdan Avenue.
“Named for the township’s long history of agricultural engagement, each Family AG Day is centered around introducing visitors of all ages to the history of agriculture and environmentalism in Wayne,” said Tessa Payer – the Museum Attendant at the Wayne Museum. “Event offerings include children’s activities and games, craft sales, community outreach, yoga and meditation, musical performances, and tours of the Van Riper-Hopper House. This year’s participants include Lokai Rose, City Green, Mathnasium, NJ Citizen Action, Totes Goats, Passaic County CASA, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, Kelly Education, Wayne Bach to Rock, Amanda Rose Riley, and Michael Cumella, the Phonograph DJ.”
On select Thursdays - July 28th and August 4th- the Wayne Museum will host the Hudson Shakespeare Company for Shakespeare in the Park. Starting at 7:00 p.m., the company will be performing Much Ado About Nothing, described as a “rockin’ summer party of the sixties…where revenge is put aside in favor of forgiveness.”
Performances will take place on the grounds of the Wayne Museum at 533 Berdan Ave, Wayne, NJ. Audience members are asked to bring lawn chairs.
Payer added that, “Wayne 175 will last until April 2023, including in-person events, weekly Facebook and Instagram posts centered around Wayne’s history, a virtual community scrapbook, and more.”
“The Wayne Museum is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of Wayne through three historic sites: the Van Riper-Hopper House, the Mead-Van Duyne House, and the Schuyler-Colfax House. Through a partnership with the Township of Wayne, the Passaic County Department of Cultural & Historic Affairs has implemented a series of new cultural and historic programs at the Wayne Museum since the County began managing the facilities in 2021.”

The Port of New York and New Jersey announced new tariffs on Tuesday related to empty containers and export volume in its battle to decrease container congestion. Both loaded and empty containers that are considered long-dwelling will be subjected to a quarterly “container imbalance fee.” The tariff will be effective as of September 1, pending the mandatory federal 30-day notice.
The Port of New York and New Jersey is the largest port on the East Coast and the third-largest in the nation. Products that were recently processed through customs in July range from BMW motorcycles and dresses for David’s Bridal out of China, parts for Plug Power, a gas cooker for Tractor Supply, and a “12 Days of Beauty Box” for Target.
But just like other ports, the Port of New York and New Jersey has processed record volumes of import containers during the pandemic and has seen these import containers wait longer at the terminals. These containers have clogged land capacity and slowed down port productivity. As a result, more vessels wait at anchor.
Under the new tariff, ocean carriers who do not move empty containers out of the port will be charged $100 per container. The port’s new container export levels mandate that export volumes must equal or exceed 110% of an ocean carrier’s incoming container volume during the same period. If that benchmark is not met, the ocean carrier will be assessed a fee of $100 per container for failing to hit this benchmark. Both loaded and empty containers are included in the import container count. Rail volume is excluded.
Surrounding land is also being used by the port to make room for the excess containers. The port created temporary storage for both empty containers and long-dwelling import containers in a 12-acre lot within the Port Newark and the Elizabeth-Port Authority Marine Terminal. The port is also in negotiations and researching additional areas that could be used for storage space.
“As we continue to manage record cargo volume and work with our tenants and port stakeholders for the removal of empty containers in a timely manner, we call on all industry stakeholders to find sustainable, long-term solutions to an industrywide problem affecting many U.S. ports,” said Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole.
The decrease in productivity can be seen in the increased travel time of vessels. The increased anchorage times can be tracked in the vessel transit time from China to the Port of New York and New Jersey.
The column chart shows the number of days ships going between China and New York are delayed.
Note: As of Aug. 2, 2022 Chart: Gabriel Cortes / CNBC Source: Project44
“The Port of New York and New Jersey is facing record import volumes, leading to empty containers accumulating in and around the port complex that are now affecting the regional supply chain that is already under stress from various sources across the country,” said Bethann Rooney, director of the Port Department at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. “We emphatically encourage ocean carriers to step up their efforts to evacuate empty containers quicker and at higher volumes to free up much needed capacity for arriving imports in order to keep commerce moving through the port and the region.”
East Coast ports like New York receive a lot of goods from Europe, where trade has been severely impacted by ongoing labor strife at both ports and rails. Exports bound for the United States are at least two months late.
Among the thousands of containers that were imported into the Port of New York and New Jersey in the month of July, according to a review of customs data using ImportGenius, there was wine from Spain, pasta, Prosecco and Giorgio Armani suits from Italy, and furniture from France.
Planet, a new contributor to the CNBC Supply Chain Heat Map, captured photos to show the impact of the rail strikes that has left a crush of containers at the rail terminals in Hamburg. Because of extensive cloud cover in July, the comparisons are between May 15, 2022 and June 11, 2022. The buildup of containers can clearly be seen. With the labor strife continuing, the number of containers has grown, according to logistics experts, and that is slowing down trade.
Hamburg rail terminal comparisons
“The rail situation in the Ports of Germany, especially in Hamburg, remains stressed and the congestion is increasing,” said Andreas Braun, Europe, Middle East, and Africa ocean product director of Crane Worldwide Logistics.
Rail operators constantly miss their normal delivery and pick up windows, and can still not deliver laden containers to the terminal earlier than seven days prior to loading. Due to the summer passenger schedule, container train operators have to give right of way to the increased amount of passenger trains, which additionally contributes to the delays.
“At least one week of delays is normal by now however, that can go up to two weeks and the constant threat that you miss the vessel,” Braun said.

Over 100 turned out for Dirt magazine’s 2022 Kitchen Garden Tour on Sunday, July 31. Equipped with a guide of 14 local backyard food gardens, they spent the day hopping from one veggie patch to the next, chatting with gardeners, and even sampling some of the produce along the way.
The event, now in its eighth year, featured first-timers, and some past favorites: like Monroe, N.Y. engineer Klaas Vogel’s garden surrounded by fencing he designed himself, and the Wolverton’s Wantage, N.J. plots bursting with fresh organic produce.
“Even if you stop at the same address year after year, there’s actually no such thing as visiting the same garden twice,” said Dirt Editor and Publisher Becca Tucker. “Each season has its dynamics, which interweave with all the others to compose the story of this particular person on this particular patch of earth at this particular moment.”
Gardeners and peepers gathered at Meadow Blues Coffee’s sprawling outdoor Blues Garden in Chester, N.Y. for the after party. Attendees voted for their favorite gardens, while mingling with the food growers over live music and locally crafted food and drinks.
Winning gardens were announced that evening.
Christina Stephens, the farmer behind Vernon Valley Farm, took third place for Best Garden. “Great garden, great pigs, chicks, the whole shebang,” an attendee noted.
Second place for Best Garden went to Alayna Berezniuk’s Wantage, N.J. plot, which she affectionately calls “a rustic oasis where creativity runs wild. “I just absolutely loved her garden. It really spoke to me,” said an event attendee. “I love the rustic feeling...And I love the goats.”
For the first time in eight years, there was a tie for first place: Aysha Venjara and Dawn Mele both took home the top award.
Attendees raved about Venjara’s mushrooms, skill, and the variety of crops growing in her Chester, N.Y. garden. “Beautiful how she blesses others with her produce,” said one garden peeper. “It was wonderful to see her respect for the land and desire to help others become stewards,” added another.
Attendees said Mele’s Vernon, N.J. garden looks like it should be in a magazine. “I love that she has out of the ordinary plantings: figs, artichokes and asparagus,” said one of the garden peepers. “It’s a lot of work and you can tell she is passionate about her garden.”
Bob and Rose Wolverton’s Hamburg, N.J. garden was voted “Most Hospitable.” Peepers were delighted to be met with zucchini appetizers at the Wolverton’s garden, and were thankful to leave the plot with new tips. “Bob and Rose, loved your hospitality. Truly appreciated Rose showing us winter sowing,” said one of the garden peepers. “So genuinely enthusiastic and informative,” added another. “I could have listened to you forever.”
Klaas Vogel’s thoughtfully constructed fruit and vegetable operation, which has been on the tour seven out of eight total years, took home the Editor’s Choice Award.
Common Ground Community Garden in Greenwood Lake, N.Y. is new to the tour this year and took the award for Best Community Garden. Peepers enjoyed seeing the spiral herb garden, and meeting with the passionate individuals who tend the plots.
“This was a great day. I made it to 13 of the gardens - all special,” said garden peeper Camille S. “A really great event. So glad it’s back!”

I have a confession to make. I've only recently discovered ramen. Full disclosure, the only experience I've ever had with it was buying those square packages with the spice packs from the food store. When I heard people obsessing about great ramen, I was like really? That stuff?
Then I woke up and tasted the real stuff, and OMG it was epic. The spicier the better as far as I'm concerned. If you agree then this ramen hot spot and spicy contest is for you!
Kyuramen in Cherry Hill, New Jersey is formally inviting you to their ‘Killer KyuRAMEN Challenge. If you can finish their version of extremely spicy ramen then you can claim the title of ‘Spiciest Ramen in New Jersey’.

It would have to be the Redux Burger which has balsamic glaze, mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions and bacon with creamy balsamic.
Take a look at their menu because they have some solid options. I would try The Alice Cooper which has a burger patty, melted cheddar cheese, buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing, kettle chips and bacon!
According to their website, this joint has burgers that were voted #1 in NJ! So let's put them to the test.
For me, the A-1 Bleu Burger sounds good. It has an angus beef patty topped with bleu cheese crumbles, A-1 steak sauce, crispy onion straws, lettuce and tomato with chipotle mayo on a fresh baked onion bun.
Thank you to Kathleen B. for emailing us with this suggestion!
There are quite a few burger options at the Jersey joint. But the one I would try is the OG Burger which has a burger patty, cheese, long hots, onion, bacon and garlic aioli. HOLY COW!
