Aging is inevitable, and for many, it signals the beginning of a new chapter - one where you cross off bucket list items and live life to the fullest, on your own terms.

For men, getting older comes with its perks, like living life on their own terms and not having to "sweat the small stuff" day in and day out. At the same time, there are aspects of aging that men dread, like hormonal changes. Yes, you read that right â men, not just women, go through hormonal changes as they age. For men, the biggest change involves a drop in testosterone.
Lower levels of testosterone can wreak havoc on a male's mind and body and when left untreated, can result in symptoms like:
Those symptoms are concerning, but with testosterone replacement therapy and anti-aging medicine, many males improve their quality of life with age. The good news is that TRT and anti-aging meds aren't only reserved for "old guys." In fact, there's no magic age at which men should start thinking about hormone replacement therapy. Everyone's body is different, so if you're experiencing the above conditions in your mid-30s, TRT could be a viable solution when you consult with a doctor.
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.
Are you used to blasting through a productive day and accomplishing all your daily goals? Do you find yourself losing muscle mass and the craving to be intimate with your partner? Does your partner complain about how irritable you have become? If you're not usually a curmudgeon, your body could be giving you a sign. It could be time to speak with a doctor about TRT and anti-aging medicine for men in Hollywood, FL.
If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might be battling against low testosterone:
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 Hollywood, FL, 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 Hollywood, FL, 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.
The benefits of hormone replacement therapy for men are numerous. TRT not only grants relief from low-T symptoms but can help give protection against age-related diseases. Additionally, doctors now recognize male testosterone as an important role in alleviating depression.
Some of the most exciting benefits of TRT can include:
Because men do not go through a specific period of hormonal changes like women do (called menopause), many doctors refer to "male menopause" as androgen decline. This is just another term for low testosterone, but like female menopause, the symptoms can be serious and affect your quality of life.
The best way to fight back against male menopause is with male HRT treatment from Global Life Rejuvenation. We provide the following HRT treatments for men:
Our treatment options are personalized for your body and are available as creams, gels, injectables, and implantable pellets. To find out if testosterone replacement therapy is safe for you, contact Global Life Rejuvenation today to schedule your comprehensive testing and anti-aging treatment consultation.
Growth hormone peptides are an innovative therapy that boosts the natural human growth hormone production in a person's body. These exciting treatment options help slow down the aging process and give you a chance at restoring your youth.
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:
Whether you are considering our TRT services, HRT for women, or our growth hormone peptide services, we are here to help. The first step to turning back the hand of time starts by contacting Global Life Rejuvenation.
Our friendly, knowledgeable TRT and HRT experts can help answer your questions and walk you through our procedures. From there, we'll figure out which treatments are right for you. Before you know it, you'll be well on your way to looking and feeling better than you have in years!973-587-8638

With more than 60 years in the music business and approaching 80 years on this earth, Rod Stewart is a name that has become synonymous with elite. From humble beginnings as a street performer with a harmonica in hand to a successful vocalist that joined forces with the likes of The Jeff Beck Group, Shotgun Express and Steampacket, Rod the Mod has tackled just about every style under the sun and amassed a worldwide album sales tally in excess of 250 million records, not to mention entering the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1994 for his solo work. All of the aforementioned honors in tow and being knighted, it would seem that this 78 year old veteran of the craft has surmounted every mountain in his path, but that same hunger that originally propelled him to greatness has remained on display with each performance that he come and gone in recent years, a fact that the attendees of the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida would be reminded of via a duo of concert extravaganzas on February 13 and 14, 2023.
Entering the stage to the blaring pipes of “Scotland The Brave”, a fitting tribute to his Scottish ancestry, Sir Stewart would mark this occasion by defying his advanced years at every turn both vocally and visually. With his massive array of support musicians and a stage setup that would rival any headliner in Vegas, the set that would ensue at the stroke of 8 PM embodied classic from start to finish. Much of the marathon, 19 song slough that culminated the evening would consist of familiar cover songs that Stewart had taken ownership of at varying points between his early days as a ‘70s rock icon up until the present, with standout performances on Cat Stevens’ acoustic folk romp “The First Cut Is The Deepest” and the gritty rocking edge of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” seeing this elder statesman of the genre sporting his signature raspy voice in top form. Smooth balladry courtesy Bonnie Tyler’s “It’s A Heartache” and Van Morrison’s “Have I Told You Lately” also garnered a spellbound response from the capacity crowd, with a pair of hot numbers by Stewart’s troupe of backing vocalists in “I’m Every Woman” and “Lady Marmalade” kept things cooking while the elder front man exited the stage for a couple of brief respites.
Nevertheless, Rod’s status as a songwriter was not one to be glossed over in favor of an evening paying homage to his various contemporaries, and the proverbial house would be brought down on numerous occasions via his own signature compositions. The poignant ode to coming of age that scored him a mega hit in the ‘80s heyday of music videos “Forever Young” would see one of the more heartfelt showings by Sir Stewart, though his backing singers would handle much of the higher register in light of the song’s high exposed nature. The energy factor would be kicked into overdrive with the up tempo rocker and signature banger “Young Turks”, while a Led Zeppelin-like sense of old school rocking mystique would rule the roost when Rod’s early work with Faces was tapped via “Ooh La La”. But it would be the bluesy rocking swagger of “Hot Legs” that would receive the most raucous response from the audience, as Stewart managed to conjure up a performance almost as powerful as the one graced his original late ‘70s take on rocking the house.
To state that the throngs of locals and out-of-towners that flocked to South Florida were witness to a spectacle of miraculous proportions would be putting it plainly, as an icon that goes back as far as The Rolling Stones was still moving and grooving like a rocker still in his prime. Though the pair of evenings at the Hard Rock Live would be a veritable time machine back to the bygone days when Sir Stewart was still codifying his craft, the level of passion and pizzazz that carried both days betrayed an artist that is still an active force in the studio, in contrast to many of his peers. True to his roots as a member of several noteworthy British rock bands, he proved as effective of a collaborator as he did the leading attraction, offering numerous opportunities for his vast array of backing musicians to shine in their own right. The years in the rearview may far outnumber the ones to come, but if his latest concert exploits are any indication, Rod The Mod still has many an occasion to light up the stage still ahead.

MIAMI, Feb. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- JLL's Hotels & Hospitality Group announced today that it closed the sale of the Diplomat Beach Resort, an award-winning beachfront resort with 1,000 guest rooms in Hollywood, Florida.

Extensively renovated and repositioned through a comprehensive $90 million dollar capital plan in 2018, the Diplomat Beach Resort is unrivaled as a world-class beachfront meeting and events-focused resort. The resort features 1,000 traditional guest rooms and suites and 200,000 square feet of integrated meeting and events space. The property consists of a twin-spired, 33-story tower housing the hotel rooms, a 14,000-square-foot spa, eight restaurants and bars plus multiple pools and cascading waterfalls.

"The sale of the Diplomat was the third largest single-asset hotel sale ever in the U.S and it's truly a win-win for both the seller and the buyers."

The Diplomat Beach Resort represents the third largest single-asset hotel sale ever in U.S. history, making a strong statement regarding the durability and economic muscle of South Florida. The South Florida lodging industry saw a tremendous recovery post-Covid making it one of the best-performing hotel markets in the country, benefitting significantly from an increase in leisure travel, recovery of group demand and the significant demographic shift into South Florida supported this landmark trade.

It's a match made in hip-hop heaven: Two of the biggest acts in the genre's history, Nas and Wu-Tang Clan, are hitting the road together.
The rap behemoths will bring their joint-headlining NY State of Mind Tour to Hard Rock Live on Friday, September 22. It's one of three Florida dates alongside shows in Tampa and Jacksonville.
Fans of the 1990s golden age of hip-hop are already acquainted with both Nasty Nas and the Killa Bees, but here's a refresher. Both came to prominence off their extremely well-received debut albums, Nas with Illmatic in 1994 and the Wu with Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers a year earlier. While Nasir Jones channeled the grit and struggle of life in the Queensbridge projects, where he was raised into serious, powerful street rap, the RZA, the GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, and Method Man created an epochal, game-changing album combining gangsta bravado with kung-fu movie samples and stark production.
These two powerful forces in rap touring together is pretty unprecedented. The Wu tends to come to Miami frequently thanks to a healthy relationship with III Points. The group played the festival in 2021, an Art Week showcase in 2017, and RZA even performed a live score at III Points in 2018. Nas, meanwhile, tends to spend his time in Miami making appearances at bottle service clubs like E11even and Story.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, March 3, at 9 a.m. via Ticketmaster. Check out all the tour dates below.

Joint venture is acquiring the existing hotel, and partnering with Related Group and BH Group to build two new towers
Trinity Investments is teaming up with Credit Suisse to acquire Hollywood’s Diplomat Beach Resort and adjacent properties for $850 million, The Real Deal has learned. The joint venture also tapped Miami-based Related Group and Aventura-based BH Group to co-develop two towers on the development sites.
The deal, which would be among the largest commercial sales on record in South Florida, is scheduled to close on Friday, according to a source close to one of the joint venture partners.The deal includes the oceanfront, 1,000-room hotel at 3555 Ocean Drive, two garages with a retail component and the pair of development sites on the Intracoastal Waterway.
JLL is representing the seller, New York-based Brookfield Property Partners, which previously tried to sell the Diplomat and the adjacent sites to Aventura-based developer Jeffrey Soffer. The billionaire also planned to pay $850 million, but that deal fell apart last year.
Trinity stepped in, went under contract and sought partners that could co-develop the vacant parcels that are next to the garages at 3460 South Ocean Drive, the source said. Jaret Turkell and Scott Wadler of Berkadia arranged the sale of the development sites from Trinity to Related and BH.
One site is approved for a project with 350 condo units, and the other one is approved for a 500-room hotel with 68,000 square feet of retail.
Spokespeople for Trinity, Credit Suisse, Related Group and BH Group declined comment. A Brookfield spokesperson did not respond to an email requesting comment.
In 2014, Thayer Lodging Group acquired the Diplomat Beach Resort and adjoining sites totaling 10 acres for $460 million, records show. Later in the same year, Brookfield bought Thayer.
In 2017, Brookfield completed a $100 million renovation of the resort. In 2019, before the pandemic, Brookfield listed the Diplomat and adjacent properties for $1 billion.
The luxury hotel has 515 king rooms, 484 double rooms, 96 suites, several restaurants and more than 200,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
Trinity is a Honolulu-based real estate investment firm led by CEO Sean Hehir. In 2021, Trinity and Certares Real Estate Management paid $174 million for East, Miami, a 352-key hotel at Brickell City Centre in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood.
Related, led by CEO Jorge Pérez, and BH Group, led by Isaac Toledano, are partnering on other residential projects in South Florida. This month, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency approved a non-binding letter of intent with Related and BH Group to build an affordable housing multifamily project in Marina Village.
BH Group and Related are also partnering with billionaire Teddy Sagi and Chicago-based Wanxiang America RE Group to build a 50-unit luxury condominium on Fisher Island. In September, the joint venture paid $122.5 million for Fisher Island’s last development site.
