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 Peapack, 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 Peapack, 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:

PEAPACK-GLADSTONE – The developer of the Natirar estate will be the first in New Jersey to benefit from a government-backed bond to make environmentally friendly improvements to the historic buildings on the estate that once served as a residence for the king of Morocco.
The $26 million bond, the first under the state's new Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program in agreement with the Somerset County Improvement Authority, will finance improvements to the Natirar Resort, which will consist of the newly refurbished Ninety Acres restaurant, a 66-room luxury hotel, a 12,000-foot luxury spa, a fitness and wellness center and residential homes.
The resort is located on 90 acres that was leased from Somerset County in 2003 and is connected with the county’s 404-acre Natirar Park that runs along the North Branch of the Raritan River.
"As Ninety Acres celebrates 13 years of memorable dinners and celebrations, Natirar is moving forward with the renovation of the restaurant and historic mansion and the creation of a new hotel and resort," said Bob Wojtowicz, founder and owner of Natirar, in a statement. "The partnership with Somerset County and Peapack-Gladstone on the C-PACE funding will result in significantly less impact on the environment and far more energy savings in the new Natirar Resort."
C-PACE funding is provided for 100% of a project’s costs and is repaid as a special assessment over a term of up to 20 years. Local government assessment financing has been used efficiently for decades throughout the United States to fund improvements to private property that meet a public purpose.
C-PACE is a national initiative, but programs are locally based and tailored to meet local market needs.
The COVID pandemic hit Somerset County’s hospitality industry hard and the county, like neighboring Hunterdon, has been working to expand its historical, event and destination tourism. Officials believe that when the Natirar Spa and Resort is completed, it will be a significant addition to Somerset County’s wedding, health and wellness, and farm-to-table tourism markets.
“Somerset County is committed to both expanding our destination tourism industry and protecting our environment, and this C-PACE project with Natirar is a perfect example of how we can do both,” said Somerset County Commissioner Deputy Director Melonie Marano in a statement. “Natirar’s fantastic history, stunning open space, new hotel resort and the Ninety Acres restaurant will be an environmentally sensitive draw to people down the street and across the country. “
The legislation enabling the PACE program was signed into law in August 2021 by Gov. Phil Murphy. The legislation was introduced by retired state Sen. Kip Bateman, R- Somerset, and state Sen. Robert Smith, D-Middlesex.
The financing for the Natirar project is the result among a partnership among Natirar, the Somerset County Improvement Authority and Peapack-Gladstone.
The Improvement Authority is providing the financing through Somerset County's low-interest bond rating based on its AAA bond rating. Peapack-Gladstone adopted an ordinance allowing the program to go forward in the municipality. Natirar has committed to make special property tax assessment payments to Peapack-Gladstone to pay off the 30-year loan.
“We are very happy to have Natirar contributing to our community, and even happier to be able to partner with Somerset County to facilitate these environmentally sustainable additions and renovations,” said Peapack-Gladstone Mayor Gregory Skinner in a statement. “Encouraging green building is simply something we should all be doing, and we’re glad to be part of New Jersey’s first C-PACE project.”
The upgrades and new projects at Natirar will include green roofing, renewable energy projects, specialized lighting systems, e-glass windows and highly efficient HVAC systems in all buildings.
“Somerset County has a deep commitment to the environment, but also to providing support for our business community,” said Improvement Authority Chairman Joel Shain in a statement. “The innovative C-PACE program is a great tool to achieve both goals, and I’m proud to work with our partners on the first such project in the Garden State.”
The mansion was originally built in 1912 as the estate home of heiress Kate Macy Ladd and her husband, Walter Ladd and was later sold to the king of Morocco
Somerset County then bought the 491-acre estate in 2003 for $22 million.

Natirar Resort in Peapack & Gladstone has teamed up with Somerset County Improvement Authority to secure funding through New Jersey’s first ever Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program.
The $26 million bond will be used for Natirar to finance environmentally efficient improvements, to ensure both its existing historic buildings, new luxury hotel and residential community minimizes its eco-footprint.
“Somerset County is committed to both expanding our destination tourism industry and protecting our environment, and this C-PACE project with Natirar is a perfect example of how we can do both,” Somerset County Commissioner Deputy Director Melonie Marano said. “Natirar’s fantastic history, stunning open space, new hotel resort and the Ninety Acres restaurant will be an environmentally sensitive draw to people down the street and across the country.”
Somerset County’s hospitality industry was particularly hard hit by the COVID pandemic’s reduction in business travel, and the County has been working to expand its historical, event, and destination tourism to make up for the loss. When the Natirar Spa and Resort is completed, it will be a significant addition to Somerset County’s wedding, health and wellness, and farm-to-table tourism markets.
The C-PACE program was signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy in August 2021 and was sponsored by Somerset County’s own Senator Kip Bateman along with Senator Bob Smith and Assemblyman Raj Mukerji. C-PACE projects around the country have led to more businesses and landlords embracing renewable energy, climate resiliency technology, and other clean energy measures that improve our communities while saving money for developers and local residents.
“I am incredibly excited that after more than 8 years of planning, alongside our financing partner and trusted advisors at ConnectOne Bank, Natirar is moving forward with the full renovation and expansion of the historic 1912 mansion into a world-class resort and spa,” said Bob Wojtowicz, founder and owner of Natirar. “The partnership with Somerset County and the Borough of Peapack and Gladstone on the Commercial-PACE funding will result in a reduced environmental footprint and utility expense for the property moving forward. This application of C-PACE is the first of its kind in the state of New Jersey, enabling Natirar to serve as a beacon of sustainability for the state and local community.”
The Natirar Resort in Peapack & Gladstone will consist of the newly refurbished Ninety Acres restaurant, a sixty-six-room luxury hotel, a 12,000-foot luxury spa, a fitness and wellness center, residential homes, and various other supporting resort facilities. The resort sits on 90 acres leased from Somerset County in 2003 and is connected with the County’s 404-acre Natirar Park that runs along the North Branch of the Raritan River.
There are three partners making this first ever New Jersey C-PACE program possible: the SCIA is providing the financing authority using Somerset County’s low interest rates based on its AAA bond rating with no impact to the County budget; Peapack & Gladstone which passed the required ordinance allowing the program to go forward in their municipality; and the Natirar Resort which commits to make special property tax assessment payments to Peapack & Gladstone to pay off the 30-year loan.
Some of the upgrades and new projects will include green roofing, renewable energy projects, specialized lighting systems, e-glass windows, and highly efficient HVAC systems in all buildings.

Between inflation, divisive political battles and international turmoil, 2022 hasn't been as kind to us as we hoped it would. So don't feel bad if you can't stomach spending a day in the kitchen for yet another Thanksgiving dinner. Instead, take the day off and let our Central Jersey restaurants do what they do best.

There's no better to place to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast than at grandma's house, which is essentially what Catherine Lombardi is. The traditional Italian restaurant's namesake is its family matriarch, and it's themed as Catherine Lombardi's living room, where visitors can dine on a three-course prix fixe menu for $70 per person from 2 to 6:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
Options include a choice of pasta or salad, with selections including garganelli with truffle cream, prosciutto and asparagus. The family-style, locally-sourced turkey comes with traditional Thanksgiving sides. Dessert options include pumpkin cheesecake, and chocolate and hazelnut bread pudding.
Every Thanksgiving, the nearly century-old Forsgate Country Club opens its clubhouse to both members and nonmembers for a holiday buffet with all the fixings. This year, the club will do the same with its reservation-only 1 and 4 p.m. seatings for $53, $25 per child.
The buffet includes roasted turkey with classic Thanksgiving sides, a carved beef station, salads, other side dishes and desserts. Takeout orders are also available for $249 for a four- to six-person meal, or $410 for eight to 10 people.

The Frog and the Peach always aims to raise the bar when it comes to American classics.
For Thanksgiving, the restaurant will offer a $76 three-course prix-fixe menu from noon to 6 p.m., which includes the option of its signature free-range organic turkey alongside haricot verts, delicata squash, truffle stuffing, cranberry compote and sherry wine gravy.
Go: 29 Dennis St., New Brunswick; 732-846-3216, frogandpeach.com/thanksgiving-2022/.
With colonial touches like exposed wood beams, wood paneling, brick fireplaces and a copper-topped bar, the Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn brings visitors back to the times of the first Thanksgiving. But on Nov. 24, it will be a place to celebrate with modern comforts and traditional American cuisine.
The restaurant inside the Olde Mill Inn will offer a four-course meal with seatings from 11:45 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. for $75, $27 per child. Menu items include pumpkin stout-braised short ribs, butternut squash ravioli, applewood-smoked kielbasa, Griggstown Farm turkey, and Granny Smith apple pie with salted caramel and whipped cream. A buffet is also available from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for $75, $27 per child.

At Ninety Acres, a farm-to-table restaurant surrounded by a 12-acre farm within a 500-acre Somerset County park and resort, you too can get a taste of local ingredients this Thanksgiving — with an upscale edge.
The acclaimed restaurant will serve a three-course Thanksgiving dinner for $115 from noon to 5 p.m. Dishes include Burgundy truffle risotto, roasted Griggstown turkey breast, Jersey Girl burrata, duck confit, delicata squash salad and a pumpkin crumb cake.
