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 Kingston, 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 Kingston, NJ, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:

A redacted invoice is among those included in the records provided by Union County in response to a New Jersey Open Public Records Act request.
UNION COUNTY, NJ — In four months, the county has spent at least $12,231.45 and authorized up to $45,000 to defend itself against an investigation from a state agency that routes out fraud, waste and abuse, records obtained by TAPinto show.
Heavily redacted legal invoices provided through a request under New Jersey’s Open Public Records Act detail the monies paid to the law firm Kingston Coventry LLC in connection to the investigation from the Office of the State Comptroller.
TAPinto requested itemized invoices or records otherwise submitted for payment to the county, its insurers, third party administrators or other vendors involved in “in the investigation by the New Jersey Office of the State Comptroller” May 1 to Oct. 26.

The Board of County Commissioners awarded a $15,000 contract to Kingston Coventry in May and on Oct. 20 tripled the allowable amount to be billed under the agreement to $45,000 for “general counsel and potential litigation services,” according to the resolution.
The redacted invoices reference phone calls, research, correspondence and meeting preparation but detail no specific legal matter for which those activities were conducted. Asked to explain the public spending, the county referred to commissioners’ resolution.
“The work being performed by the Kingston Coventry firm is pursuant to and consistent with the resolution appointing them,” said County Counsel Bruce Bergen in a statement through the county’s public information office last week.
A call to Kingston Coventry on Friday seeking comment for this article was not returned. The law firm on its website promotes its expertise in defending against government enforcement.
“Having formerly investigated and prosecuted scores of corporate individuals and companies around the globe, our attorneys possess the critical insights necessary to represent your entity or officers in government enforcement actions at all levels,” the firm states.
Each of the 22 pages of invoices the county provided in response to TAPinto’s OPRA request contains redactions.
And despite there being no legal case detailed publicly, Union County OPRA compliance manager Marlena M. Russo wrote to TAPinto that parts of invoice items from services dated July 11 and 26 were “redacted as to confidential information or so as to not reveal trial strategy.”
These items reference a “30-minute call with [redacted] provided by research,” “correspondence with [redacted] requesting meeting prior to [redacted] research on [redacted]” and “review [redacted] electronic correspondence; client communications.”
The county used the same justifications for redactions to invoices for services dated Sept. 14 and 21, Russo wrote. These invoice items reference “research of [redacted] across the state review of [redacted] in preparation for meeting with [redacted] as well as a call, review of correspondence and the drafting of an email.”
“All other redactions were made as to attorney-client confidential information,” Russo wrote.
Bruce Paterson, a Garwood resident and a thorn in the side of Union County government, has repeatedly raised the issue of the state investigation during recent meetings of the commissioner board.
At the commissioners’ Oct. 20 meeting, Paterson asked for an overview of the legal spending and said “I understand that the comptroller's office is involved in something, maybe audits.” He received no answer to that question.
Paterson told TAPinto that he has been following Union County budgets for at least 15 years and that in 2013, he noticed the surplus beginning to “climb drastically.”
Recently, Paterson said he forwarded his analysis to the state Comptroller’s Office, correspondence he subsequently provided to TAPinto. This year, the surplus stands at $142.409 million in the "remaining balance," according to the spending plan, climbing by 39% from last year.
The county has banked the monies as a result of the closures of the Union County Jail in 2021, the Union County Juvenile Detention Center in 2019 and the sale of Runnells Specialized Hospital in 2014, Paterson said.
“I spoke at many county budget hearings stating that they are hiding monies continually in each new budget where it should be returned to the taxpayers,” he said. “It is not their money it is ours. They simply ignored my statement, said they were not hiding anything. Presently, it appears I may be correct as the comptroller’s office is investigating their finances.”

It’s almost too much fun to ignore: And even though there are a zillion places to eat in New Jersey, this is cooler than a diner and way more fun than Starbucks. And I can’t wait.
It’s new fast casual breakfast place that will soon open at 30 Morris street in Morristown.
And it’s called “Effin Egg.”
Fourteen years after opening Smallcakes Cupcakery, Founder Jeff Martin sold the nation’s largest cupcake company and came up with the concept that he seesas having enormous potential in the growing fast-casual breakfast space.
And it’s already working. According to an article in restaurant news, Martin says,
“Effin Egg is not your grandpa’s breakfast spot, it’s for the person on the go that needs that morning pick me up.”
With sandwiches like “Effin boring” and “the OG,” Effin Egg has everything you need for breakfast in a fun and laid-back atmosphere.
A bright and energetic way to start your day.
They offer gourmet breakfast sandwiches, breakfast tacos and burritos, with carb-friendly options in the very popular Effin Breakfast bowls.
According to their website, the concept of Effin eggs began with a true love of eggs as its inspiration.
And there’s nothing incomprehensible to be ordered there.
Nor do you have to learn to speak a secret, made-up language.
It’s classic comfort food with a twist, using only the freshest and finest ingredients.
Oh, and the great thing about Effin Egg's signature egg “sammies” is that, although they serve them for breakfast, they hit the spot all day long.
With locations already in Florida, Georgia and New York City, the concept has been proven, and people are excited for it to land here in New Jersey.
I think you can get the vibe of this place just by reading this quote from their website,
“This is not your grandpa’s breakfast place. At Effin Egg we have some dope ass coffee. We roast our beans in small batches daily to give you the best tasting coffee around..as we say…Potheads Welcome!”
Now does that mean they want you to come in and smoke a joint in the place?
I think not. But you do your due diligence.

Elvis Costello launched his career as part of London's pub rock scene in the early 1970s. He would go on to become one of the most prominent figures of the British punk and new wave movement that hit near the end of the decade. Costello's breakthrough arrived in 1977 with the release of his platinum-selling debut album My Aim Is True, highlighting his distinct style by combining punk rock and sophisticated lyrics with tones of new wave music. The album housed two of Costello's greatest hits with "Alison" and "(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes." His second album This Year's Model brought continued success in 1978 (the first album he recorded with backing band the Attractions) and his third album the following year, Armed Forces, which featured his highest-charting single "Oliver's Army." Costello's career has yielded 24 solo albums, and several prestigious awards (including an Academy Award), and influenced countless artists from a wide range of genres. He has been named one of Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee since 2003.
