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 Phillipsburg, 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 Phillipsburg, 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:

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – The Town of Phillipsburg has a new Superintendent of Recreation. Welcome back to Phillipsburg Edward “EJ” Tarpey.
At the town council meeting August 2, 2022 the Phillipsburg Town Council passed Resolution 2022-173 under a consent agenda. The consent agenda passed unanimously 5-0, with no discussion on any of the resolutions on the agenda.
The mayor’s selection to Town Council was approved, and will replace the vacancy left by Donald DJ Kophazy. Tarpey is known as a ‘legend’ in Phillipsburg Basketball and was part of the retirement farewell to Tom Fisher, Phillipsburg’s athletic director held this year by the Garnet Booster Club Foundation.
Most notably, was the following story from 1984 that ran in the Morning Call. “On a magical day last March, the little town of Phillipsburg - a wrestling town if ever there was one - fell madly in love with a basketball team. On that date, coach Tom Fisher and the Cinderella Stateliners completed their own Impossible Dream, beating heavily-favored Ewing 55-54 in the Brendan Byrne Arena at the Meadowlands for the New Jersey Group 3 state championship.”
Tarpey is optimistic and is up to the challenge. Asked for statement, Tarpey said, “I look forward to working with the town, the children and all the partners in the community to work on our parks, recreation, our overall participation and most importantly, to see everyone have fun, while building character. This really is exciting and a proud moment to be able to come back home and work with the community”.
Speaking with Tarpey during the meeting, he has been to all the parks in town and is ready to get to work on making recreation fun, while bringing new programming to the community to engage everyone, in every neighborhood and has some ideas for improvements.Recently relocating back to the area, is what brought Tarpey to apply for the vacancy. He looks forward to working collaboratively.
Mayor Todd Tersigni, in his mayor’s report mentioned the appointment of Tarpey and felt he is qualified to take charge of the recreation department. "Both appointments are well qualified and will do an excellent job for Phillipsburg" stated Tersigni.
A Phillipsburg graduate, with a long career and background, Tarpey was congratulated by all of the council members on the appointment, and they look forward to working together on recreation.

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ – Councilman Randy Piazza, Jr. (R) asked to revisit placing on the November ballot a referendum to adjust the library tax to fully fund the Phillipsburg Free Public library through library taxes. Councilman Peter Marino (R) agreed, but the rest of Town Council voted no.
During the Tuesday, August 2, 2022 meeting, Piazza stated he “Doesn’t believe the open space referendum on the ballot will impact this request”.
Council President Harry Wyant (R) was concerned about a tax increase for Phillipsburg residents, while Council Vice President Lee Clark (D ) who ran on a platform of fully funding the library, stated his issue with this is that the Library director and board were not consulted as part of the discussion.
According to the 2022 tax bill, the town of Phillipsburg distribution of taxes breaks down as follows:
Rate Per $100
COUNTY - WARREN
LOCAL (PHILLIPSBURG TOWN)
MUNICIPAL OPEN SPACE
On a property valued at $178,600, the library tax presently equals $67.87. *
It was not made clear at the meeting what the increase would amount to. That was a subject for discussion requested by Piazza. He asked for a special meeting if necessary to meet the deadline for placement on the ballot. This topic was previously discussed at a prior work session.
Clark also stated that he spoke with the library director, and he would prefer to consult with the library board before any discussions took place. Mayor Todd Tersigni stated that “the library director, Dave Krolak has expanded the hours of the library recently, and he has told him (Tersigni) that he won’t ask for an increase in funding next year”.
Piazza asked “How they can start with an ask of $950,000, yet now get by with $300,000 less. How is that possible?” He reminded the council that it is the town’s responsibility to prepare the budget and how much can be spent and where.
Councilman Marino was very to the point, “It is the people’s money, and we should let them decide”. A motion was then made by Piazza and seconded by Marino to place this on the agenda for a work session. However, Councilman Keith Kennedy, Clark and Wyant voted no, while Marino and Piazza voted yes.
Municipal and joint municipal libraries are established by referendum (NJSA 40:54-2, municipal; NJSA 40:54-29.6, joint municipal). Therefore, the tax established is set and voted on by the people. The Warren County Library system ceased their agreement in 2017, which provided $600,000 annually to the Phillipsburg library. This discontinued once the county opened their Southwest location nearby. The library is presently funded by the library tax collected and supplemented through the municipal taxes that are collected. Which Piazza stated each should be used for their intended purpose.
In a prior poll, TAPinto Phillipsburg asked our readers to vote on how they felt about the library funding. Only 31 responses were received. However, of the 31 responses, here are the results:
Would you vote to increase the tax rate to fully fund the local library?
If the question is placed on the ballot, will you vote?
Are you a resident of Phillipsburg (Town) – All Answered Yes 100%, Chart excluded.
Do you use the services provided by the Public Library?
How important is a local library to you? Scale of 1 to 10
The Open Space Ordinance passed unanimously on second reading, and will be placed on the November ballot. The Phillipsburg voters will decide if they wish to continue collecting 0.02 per $100 for Open Space. This is the second time this is being placed on the ballot, after successfully passing in 2017. The Open Space tax is currently collected and not proposed to change.

Caution Regarding Cannabis Operations in the United States
Investors should note that there are significant legal restrictions and regulations that govern the cannabis industry in the United States. Cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under the US Controlled Substances Act, making it illegal under federal law in the United States to, among other things, cultivate, distribute or possess cannabis in the United States. Financial transactions involving proceeds generated by, or intended to promote, cannabis-related business activities in the United States may form the basis for prosecution under applicable US federal money laundering legislation.
While the approach to enforcement of such laws by the federal government in the United States has trended toward non-enforcement against individuals and businesses that comply with medical or adult-use cannabis programs in states where such programs are legal, strict compliance with state laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve TerrAscend of liability under U.S. federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any federal proceeding which may be brought against TerrAscend. The enforcement of federal laws in the United States is a significant risk to the business of TerrAscend and any proceedings brought against TerrAscend thereunder may adversely affect TerrAscend's operations and financial performance.
