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 Riverdale, 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 Riverdale, 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:

NAI James E. Hanson, the largest New Jersey-based full-service independent commercial real estate firm, announces it has been named the exclusive brokerage for 110 Route 23 in Riverdale, N.J. NAI James E. Hanson’s Jonathan Kristofich and John Schilp will oversee the marketing of the property.
Located near the intersection of Route 23 and Interstate 287 in northeastern Morris County, 110 Route 23 is a 14.51-acre, 133,032-square-foot component of Riverdale Plaza, a large retail power center. 110 Route 23 has been triple-net leased to BJ’s Wholesale Club, a leading warehouse club operator consistently offering 25% or more savings on groceries, general merchandise and ancillary items, and double-net leased to Staples, an office supply retail company and industry leader in workspace products like furniture, technology, cleaning products and traditional office supplies, since its construction in 1998. The active power center is shadow-anchored by Home Depot and Target.
The strategically located property casts a very wide trade with ideal accessibility to Morris, Passaic and Bergen counties via nearby Interstate 287. In addition, it has become a preferred shopping destination for residents in nearby Bergen County who are impacted by Bergen County Blue Laws that prohibit the sale of certain retail items on Sundays including electronics, clothing and furniture.
“110 Route 23’s combination of accessibility, visibility and in-place leases with two national tenants make it an ideal retail property in the current market,” said Kristofich. “We’re honored to represent the seller in the assignment, and we look forward to procuring a purchaser for this fantastic piece of real estate.”

RIVERDALE — Residents said they are worried as hearings continued on a closely scrutinized three-home development at the top of a mountain in a neighborhood known for crumbling rock walls and rock slides.
A vote on the application for the Hidden Hills or Dube Development, is expected at the next Planning Board hearing on Nov. 1. The plans are a variation on an application the Board denied in 2007. It's a three-lot subdivision on 12.5 acres off Mathews Avenue near the Butler border.
Access would be up Overlook Drive through the 31-home Enclave development and a cul-de-sac at the end of Skyview Terrace. Down below is Rock Creek Crossing, a town house development built in the late 1990s.
The specter of falling rock haunts homeowners there, particularly those who live in building C, behind natural rock walls.
"I literally lose sleep at the thought of this," said Jason Margelefsky, who lives on the ground floor of the building.
He and his neighbors remember when in 2005 a rock slide closed down Timber Ridge Road, one of two ways in and out of the development, for six months.
"Fortunately there are no houses on that side," he said. "If something like that were to fall that would be in my living room."
Geraldine Mondello, another homeowner in building C, said about a year and a half ago a 7-foot by 3-foot rock came down.
"We say it's the Tilcon," she said in reference to Tilcon New York which does regular rock blasting in a quarry a mile away. "But this work here is going to be right behind us and these rocks are going to come down."
On the opposite side of the Hidden Hills property to the north is a rock wall that collapsed in 2011. The massive rock slide there closed Overlook Drive for three days, sealing off the main road to the 31 Enclave homes. A temporary road had to be constructed off High Street in Butler.
Professionals representing Hidden Hills gave repeated assurances the construction of the new homes would not disturb the rock wall and would not lead to a disaster. Rock will need to be removed from the site, but blasting will not be used, they said.
"There will be no damage to any rock wall because it is just too far away from where the work is to be done," the geo-tech engineer, Eugene Schwarzrock, testified.
He said the new homes would not add any additional stress on the rock face near building C. He also said boring and drilling will not disturb the rock on the Overlook Drive side.
Several questions were also raised about rain water and whether there would be an increase in water runoff, or a shift in how water flows towards the neighborhoods and rock walls below.
Patrick McClellan, the engineer for Hidden Hills, said the objective of the project is to have zero increase in runoff. He said steps were taken to protect the other properties and that there will not be an adverse impact. A dry well will be installed on the property to help manage water runoff.
The rock expert testified that water running off the Hidden Hills site will not be a problem.
"We are not changing the groundwater evolution," Schwarzrock said.
David Merritt, an attorney for the Rock Creek Crossing Condominium Association, was skeptical. Merritt, and an attorney for the Enclave at Riverdale Homeowners Association, continuously put several tough questions to the Hidden Hills experts over the course of the three hearings.
He said that the homeowners bought in to the risk of the natural conditions but, "they did not buy in to the risk of those conditions being worsened by the property above them changing the way that the water flows."

A community garden is coming to Riverdale in 2023, courtesy of an injection of cash from a statewide nonprofit.
The $10,000 grant received this week from Sustainable Jersey and the PSEG Foundation will allow Riverdale to create the garden at the town's senior center for next spring, said Mayor Paul Carelli.
Registration is expected to open this winter for residents who want to rent plots next year. Not all plots will be available as some will be reserved for the Riverdale Food Pantry, Carelli said.
"A select few will be tabletop ADA accessible beds for senior citizens and those with disabilities," he added.
A few beds have already been built by young residents Matthew Soto and Gina Oswald as scouting projects. The $10,000 will fund fencing, water infrastructure and an ADA-accessible entrance, Carelli said.
The $10,000 award is one of 35 distributed this year by Sustainable Jersey, a Lawrenceville-based nonprofit created to incentivize environmentally friendly projects and programs run by local governments and school districts. Since 2009, it has distributed roughly $500,000 per year.
This year, the nonprofit doled out grants in 15 of New Jersey's 23 counties. Thirteen received $10,000, 15 received $2,000 and seven communities received $20,000 grants.
Among them was New Milford, where local officials are seeking to partner with Bergen County Audubon Society and Hackensack Riverkeeper to create an environmental resource inventory for use "as a first step in informing and determining future projects," said Michael Putrino.
A popular planning tool in the region, the reports identify natural resources, contamination zones and existing infrastructure to help determine the viability for construction projects and environmental conservation efforts.
Other projects in New Jersey funded by this year's $300,0000 round of grant funding include an effort by Fair Lawn to upgrade its website and communications and Chester Township's desire to make a 7-acre field a "pollinator paradise." Statewide, efforts include a mobile farmers market; outdoor classrooms, and more.
The grants supported by the PSEG Foundation and evaluated by an independent committee help communities take meaningful steps to combat climate crisis, social equity and environmental pollution, said Randall Solomon, executive director for Sustainable Jersey.
“As we work to achieve a sustainable New Jersey, our organization understands how important it is to help municipalities and schools build on the progress they are making at the local level," he said.

And we have a winner in New Jersey.
The Lukoil gas station on Route 23 south in Riverdale sold the winning lottery ticket for the $521 million jackpot, according to the NJ Lottery.
“We are thrilled that the winning ticket was sold in Morris County. I’m happy to congratulate Riverdale Lukoil South of 105 Route 23 South in Riverdale, the retailer that sold this winning ticket,” said NJ Lottery Acting Executive Director John M. White.
The winning numbers from the March 30 drawing are: 11, 28, 31, 46, and 59. The Gold Mega Ball is 1 and the Megaplier is 3.
The amount is the fourth largest jackpot in Mega Millions' history. The winner has a year from the drawing to claim the prize.
"It's exciting to think that their lives have been changed," said Nancy Levan, a cashier at the Lukoil, of the winner.
WINNER, WINNER:East Hanover bagel shop sells $50,000 Powerball ticket
Levan and her manager, Nash Riad, happily spoke to a swarm of reporters in between transactions with customers on a busy afternoon.
They don't know who the winning ticket was sold to. And they aren't sure how much the store looks to gain from selling the winning ticket.
Riad said he received a call from the lottery office in the early morning.
"They check the address and they told me, 'do you know that you are the store who sold the winning ticket for one person? Be ready. All news will be here.'"
Levan said it was exciting to think that she could've been the one that sold the winning ticket.
"We have a lot of blue collar workers that come in in the mornings so we're hoping it was someone that really needed it," she said. "It would be great for them."
Levan said one of her co-workers called her at home to break the news that one of them sold the winning ticket.
"Just knowing that it's one of our customers. That it stayed in New Jersey, stayed local, is an awesome thing," she said.
Levan said the biggest previous winning at the gas station was a $200,000 scratch-off lottery ticket off a $5 purchase in 2015.
