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 Palm Beach Gardens, 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 Palm Beach Gardens, 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.
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:

PALM BEACH GARDENS – A gym with unusual features including a treadmill-lined movie theater and hula dance classes is set to open at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens.
The gym is poised to take over a 30,140-square-foot space that formerly housed Best Buy and sits just across the parking lot from apartments at the center. Best Buy moved to another space in the shopping plaza.
It would be the second EoS Fitness in Palm Beach County, with its other location off State Road 7 in suburban Boca Raton, and the 10th location in Florida. Pure Barre, which offers workouts using a ballet barre, is the only other fitness business at Legacy Place.
Legacy Place, the outdoor retail and residential complex with 384 multi-family units sold for $101 million in 2021 to Boca Raton-based Woolbright Development and Dallas-based Lone Star Funds.
The plaza at PGA Boulevard and Alternate State Road A1A did strong business after it opened in 2006 but has struggled to bring in customers amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of e-commerce. Many of its signature stores — such as Best Buy and Barnes & Noble — do much of their business online.
Since then, efforts to bring new tenants to the center have met with uneven results. EoS Fitness is expected to bring a new set of customers to the center.
The Palm Beach Gardens Planning and Zoning Board unanimously voted in mid-October to recommend the gym’s approval. The City Council is expected to vote to approve or deny it at its next meeting on Nov. 2.
Legacy Place has already updated their website directory, saying Eos Fitness is “coming soon.”
The gym offers personal trainers, yoga and cycling classes, and a backyard for its members to work out under the sun. Each gym also is equipped with a hot tub, sauna, massage chairs and indoor swimming pool. Membership fees at EoS Fitness start at $9.99 per month with an annual membership fee of $49.99.
“We are finding that many people have very specific fitness needs,” said Nicole Plunkett with Cotleur & Hearing, the agent representing the project. “EoS Fitness will complement not just the people who visit the center, but the residents as well.”
City planner Christopher Oftedal expressed concern over the future success of Legacy Place, saying that he drives past it often and gets the sense that it is “completely empty.” He still voted to recommend bringing EoS Fitness to the center.
“Is there any long-term strategy, or are we just kind of putting a Band-Aid on Legacy Place?” Oftedal asked at the mid-October meeting.
Amanda Kennedy-Sita, vice president of acquisitions at Woolbright Development, said that Legacy Place’s retail space is currently 70% occupied.
Kennedy-Sita hopes to achieve 90% occupancy by the end of the year. She expects two major restaurants, a coffee shop and other smaller “mom-and-pop” retail to come to Legacy Place by then.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. —
The future home of TGL golf, a "prime-time golf league" founded by Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy, will be known as the SoFi Center.
The arena will be able to seat about 1,500 people at the Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens.
Previous coverage: Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy break ground on new TGL site
TMRW Sports says the SoFi Center will feature "a giant simulator screen powered by Full Swing technology measuring 64 feet high by 46 feet across, roughly 20 times the size of a standard simulator screen. Alongside the simulator inside the venue will be a dynamic short-game complex that includes three sand bunkers and three individual 15 feet x 27 feet Virtual Greens within a massive 3,800 square-foot putting surface."
It is set to open in January 2024, but those who live in the area are not as excited as some local sports fans.
“When we moved here, we realized the ball fields could eventually become buildings, labs, parking lots, or something; we never realized it would be an enterprise by some millionaire golfers,” Buddy Herrington said.
Herrington has lived in his Palm Beach Gardens home for the better part of four decades. His yard backs up to the construction.
“They have been working at all hours of the night," he said. "It’s not this noisy, but there is big machinery.”

He said people in their neighborhood are less worried about traffic and more concerned about potential flooding after experiencing a flood in 1995.
Palm Beach State College built a berm in 1997 and there has not been a flooding issue since.
“We want to make sure they have the proper drainage because now that they are building on it, there is going to be even more water that has to go somewhere other than the ground,” he said.
The latest: Sports coverage from WPBF 25 News
Palm Beach State College sent us the following statement addressing the concerns of Herrington and his neighbors:
"The safety of our community is always our priority. We appreciate the fact that residents expressed their concerns during community information sessions held recently at our Palm Beach Gardens campus and we have taken note of the issues.
The site is being developed in accordance with a permit for stormwater drainage approved and issued by the South Florida Water Management District. There have been no flooding issues throughout the construction process. The Civil Engineer for the TMRW Sports project has confirmed the existing stormwater management system provides the required water quality treatment and storm drainage.
The concerns of residents date back to major flooding that occurred in the neighborhood in 1995. The college constructed a Berm in 1997 to provide a barrier and there have been no major flooding issues since then."
In regards to the partnership between Palm Beach State College and the TGL, PBC leaders sent WPBF 25 the following statement:
"Palm Beach State College is proud to be the host location at our Palm Beach Gardens campus for the inaugural home and live broadcasting venue of the TGL, which will provide many benefits to the College and our students.
We’re most excited about the benefits that this historic partnership with TMRW Sports will bring to our students. For example, PBSC’s construction students will be touring the site in the next week as part of their learning experience. Students will have an opportunity to speak with TMRW Sports’ construction team, engineers, and project managers. There are also a number of technology internships being made available to our students, and a career fair planned in the fall, with job opportunities for local residents. This is in addition to guest lectures by renowned leaders in sports, entertainment and business, and use of the facility for college events. In addition, as a result of this partnership, PBSC is developing a curriculum on career pathways in AI and technology in sports management, marketing, entrepreneurship, retail, and project management."

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — An $80 million plan to revamp a 50-year-old marina is being considered in Palm Beach Gardens.
The PGA Marina, located at PGA Boulevard and the Intracoastal Waterway, is located in a corridor home to considerable development. However, some say that comes with increased congestion.
"It's hard, there's a lot of traffic," Derek Dunn, who works in the area, said.
"The [PGA Boulevard] bridge is a nightmare," Mike Mehdipour, who lives and works in the area, said.
There's now a possible plan to change the decades-old PGA Marina.
"I think it is a bit of an eyesore," Mehdipour said.
"It's probably going to increase the population a little," Dunn said.
Austin Schell, the chief executive of Port 32 Marinas, met WPTV at the site Wednesday to discuss the project.
"This was built in the early 1970s," Schell explained. "It's like any infrastructure that is 50 years old. It no longer meets the requirements of the modern boater. Frankly, the concrete is falling apart. The steel won't last forever."
The city of Palm Beach Gardens confirmed that the next steps include a city council meeting on Thursday night with a public hearing and vote.
"I think it's important to remember that we're adding a net new of 57 slips, similar to a gym membership, not everyone shows up at the same time," Schell explained.
He went on to say that he wants a new look with noise and safety improvements.
"The entrance to the River House Cafe currently runs through our forklift travel area," he said.
The entire stretch of the PGA corridor is seeing recent development, including residential. There is a new project planned for completion in 2025 that includes Ritz Carlton residences.
"You'll have three, seven-story buildings," Joey Eichner, executive vice president of the Catalfumo Management and Development Group, said. "This is one of the largest residential developments going on the waterfront with a large marina."
Thomas Deskin, who lives near the construction, said his family has been here for 50 years.
"We are one of the closest houses to the water on the whole waterway," he said.
The face of Florida, he said, is changing and with that comes concerns of adding to the already busy bridges and roadways.
"We are always worried about that," Deskin said. "But we also try not to worry about things we can't control."

If you happen to drive down RCA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens and look toward Palm Beach State College's athletic field, you may be wondering: What is that enormous white dome that seemed to have arisen overnight?
The dome is the main piece at the site of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's new TGL, a new golf league that infuses technology with in-person golf.
With groundbreaking on the site in February, construction has been happening fast, with the league expected to start play in January.
On Monday, Oct. 9, the air-supported dome went up. At nearly 250,000 square feet, it will hold close to 2,000 people. It is 75 feet high and covers almost the entire football field-sized athletic field.
It will include a 46-by-64-foot screen — nearly 20 times larger than a simulator screen. The "SoFi Center," as it will be called, will include a 40-yard-wide short-game complex featuring three dynamic putting surfaces within the 3,800 square-foot green and three sand bunkers where the stars will compete.
This is how the league will work: Pro golfers play both virtually and in-person within an enclosed arena. The idea of the project is to “bring golf into the 21st century,” says McIlroy. Woods (Jupiter Island) and McIlroy (Jupiter) both live within 20 minutes of PBSC's Palm Beach Gardens campus.
Along with commitments from Woods and McIlroy, TGL's roster includes four other players in the Top 10 in the world rankings: No. 3 Jon Rahm, No. 6 Xander Schauffele, No. 7 Max Homa and No. 8 Matt Fitzpatrick. The roster also includes major champions Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Adam Scott and Justin Rose, as well as Rickie Fowler and Billy Horschel.
The format calls for six three-man teams to compete against each other. There will be 15 weekly matches, followed by semifinals and finals matches.
The league will start in late January, with 15 regular-season Monday night events consisting of six teams of three PGA Tour players each competing head-to-head in 18-hole match play. The matches will be capped at two hours.
On Oct. 3, the TMRW Sports Group announced a multiyear commercial partnership with SoFi Technologies to become the presenting sponsor of TGL.
SoFi will have its name emblazoned on the Palm Beach Gardens venue. SoFi already has a large presence in sports — SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, serves as the home stadium for the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
Here are the four teams, and their owners, in the league so far:

Officials say the tornado was about a quarter of a mile wide, and the path of destruction spanned more than 2 miles.
The tornado caused damage at the Point at Palm Beach Gardens apartments next to U.S. 1 and PGA Boulevard. Cars were also damaged in that parking lot, and nearby trees were destroyed.
"I watched it for about 20 seconds to see which way it was going to move, and then obviously, when I saw it kind of closing in toward us, I immediately shut the slider, went back in, huddled in the bathroom, the building started to shake, there was a lot of noise for 20 to 25 seconds,” said Andrew Laybourne, who lives in the Point at Palm Beach Gardens apartments.

Laybourne says he's lucky his apartment only had a little damage. But other people's apartments had more significant damage, and several cars were thrown around during the tornado.
"I got chill bumps on my arm," said Jason Rash, who lives in the Point at Palm Beach Gardens apartments. "I’m lucky to be alive. I had my back against the concrete wall. I’m in an open-air parking deck, and I’m like, ‘I’m going to get blown away. If I stand here, I’m going to get slammed against the wall.'"
Rash was on the phone with his son, who was across the parking lot at a gym. They’re both doing OK.
"The whole time when you’re thinking about your child trapped in a building over here, and he can’t get out and you can’t get to him and I was like, ‘Oh my God, my life is in danger’ and that’s when I ran to get to the stairwell,” Rash said.
"(My son) started crying, and he was like, ‘Dad, what can I do?’ and I was like, ‘Get down! Get down! Get down!’" Rash said.

Power lines in the area exploded after the storm passed. Many trees along U.S. 1 in Palm Beach Gardens fell down due to the storm. At least one boat that was docked capsized. Firefighters say two cars driving southbound on U.S. 1 rolled over due to the storm. First responders say one of those drivers had minor injuries.
In Juno Beach, several power lines are now slanted due to the storm.
"It's got to be a tornado because I've never seen anything like this in all the hurricanes I've seen. This was powerful,” said Norman Hirsch, who lives in Juno Beach.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews say they’re still assessing the damage.
