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 Ross Corner, 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 Ross Corner, 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:

TRENTON – New Jersey’s pension funds lost $10 billion in value in nine months, a reflection of the downturn in the investment markets since last summer.
The pension funds were valued at $91.5 billion as of May 31, according to a report made to the State Investment Council by the Treasury Department at a Wednesday meeting. They had peaked at $101.5 billion at the end of last August.
“The fact of the matter is that the markets across the board are having a hard time, and that has been the case throughout most of this year,” said Shoaib Khan, director and chief investment office in the state Division of Investment.
“Both calendar year and fiscal year performance are clearly negative in a meaningful way across several markets,” he said. “Unfortunately, there are very few hiding spots in these current market conditions, I would say.”
Despite a record $6.9 billion state contribution to the pensions last July, the funds ended May with their lowest value since April 2021.
The data shows the funds were down 6.3% in the first five months of 2022, which was slightly better than the -6.5% benchmark. May was the second-best month of the year so far, even though the funds’ value was down by $770 million, but that followed a steep loss of almost $3.9 billion in April.
“We didn’t add color to this page,” Khan said to the council in making the presentation. “If we had converted all the negative numbers to red, I think we would have a page that would show a number of – it would be a sea of red.”
Since the end of May, markets are down further, including 2.4% for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 2.6% for the S&P 500 Index as of the close of markets Wednesday. The Nasdaq has been doing a bit better, down 0.4% since May 31.

A planning document details The Sophia an apartment building to be built next to an historic home that is being converted into a cultural center in Westfield.
WESTFIELD, NJ — The Westfield Historic Preservation Commission offered advisory comments to the developers of The Sophia, an apartment building planned for .96 acres at the corner of Prospect Street and Ferris Place, at its meeting on Monday, a week before the developers’ site plan application is to be heard by the town’s Planning Board.
Plans for the four-story mixed-use building, would include up to 60 apartments, nine of them to be set aside for affordable housing, and 500 square feet of retail space, according to the redevelopment agreement.
The commission offered advice to the developer since an 18th-century home on the redevelopment property, known as the Mills-Ferris-Pearsall House, was designated by the town as an historical landmark. The developer, James Ward, had sought the designation as part of his negotiations with the town for the town for developing the property.
“The house was built by one of the early settler families of the state and has been included in every town survey of important buildings,” according to a July 18 report by commission member Barton Ross.
Commission members at their meeting Monday disagreed with plans by Ward to move the home or to turn it into a museum or cultural center.
“Neither myself, nor any commission member, in any meetings, suggested, requested or insisted that the historic home be used as a museum or cultural center,” Historic Preservation Commission Chairperson Maria Boyes said before recusing herself from the advisory discussions due to her home’s proximity to the redevelopment project site. “Additionally, we stated that we did not believe that moving and attaching the historic structure to any new construction would be beneficial to the 1700s homestead.”
Boyes said she was correcting “the public record as stated in the May 24 Town Council meeting by the attorney for the developer of 112 Ferris Place, as well as by a member of the developer’s family in the press.”
Bruce Stieve, the architect for the project, said the house would be moved during construction to a location adjacent to the new building and above an underground parking structure.
The developers have a formal redevelopment agreement with the town and a “voluminous redevelopment plan of 61 pages,” Ferris and Prospect LLC Attorney Richard Skolnick said, introducing the project.
“My client has had many discussions… with the various stakeholders in the municipality, informal discussions with members of this commission, town council people…meeting after meeting after meeting,” Skolnick said. “Many of those discussions — really all of them — were completed before the historic designation was formally made.”
Commission member Barton Ross took issue with the site plan application and a “protection plan” the applicant provided to ensure the prevention of physical damage to existing historic properties adjacent to demolition and construction activities.
“The site plan application is incomplete as no architectural drawings (existing, demo or proposed) depicting the historic house were provided in the application packet,” Ross wrote in his report. “No details nor specific written specifications were provided either, besides an incomplete protection plan report, which makes it difficult for the Historic Preservation Commission members to adequately review and make insightful comments or recommendations.”
During the meeting, Ross said the commission “found there wasn't a lot of information in the report to really understand what's happening to the historic building.”
“There’s going to be a house mover, but a house mover is only as good as their reputation and what other projects they’ve done,” Ross said.
Both in his report and at the meeting, Ross said the developers should provide more details, specifics and documentation, and look into alternatives to moving the structure.
“The Protection Plan should seek to examine alternatives to moving the structure,” he wrote. “Redesigning the residential building to avoid the Mills-Ferris-Pearsall House should be relatively straightforward and by wrapping the southwest end of the proposed residential building, it could avoid the historic house altogether.”
The commission concluded that its members would prefer the house not to be moved at all, but if it is moved, said it should be 10 feet away from the new housing development. They also discussed having the applicant file a certificate of appropriateness application and return before the commission at a later stage in their planning process.
The Westfield Planning Board will hear The Sophia's site plan application for the project on Monday, Aug. 1, at 7:30 p.m., at 425 East Broad Street. The Historic Preservation Commission said it would provide the advisory comment to the board before this meeting.

LACEY — Canada's loss is New Jersey's gain in the form of four new lions and tigers at the Associated Humane Societies Popcorn Park Zoo and Animal Refuge.
They were residents of the Cherry Brook Zoo in the eastern Canadian province of New Brunswick, which closed in May 2020 after 46 years. The zoo was having financial difficulties going into the pandemic but restrictions on visitors shut off their revenue stream which led to their decision to close.
New homes were eventually found for all 60 animals at Cherry Brook. Popcorn Park Zoo agreed to take in brother-and-sister lions, who are both 8-years-old, and the 7- and 8-year-old tigers. They were first taken to the Granby Zoo in Quebec before completing their two year journey to Ocean County.
Executive Director John Bergman said when he agreed to take them in he had no idea it would take so long.
"It was a pretty long time getting all the permits in line and arranging the transport," zoo Bergman told New Jersey 101.5. "Special thanks to (former state) Sen. Raymond Lesniak for his perseverance in helping relocate these cats to New Jersey. This relocation would not have been possible without the tremendous support of Tigers in America and InSync Exotics."
Bergman said it is an honor to have the new residents to fill the void left by the death of Caesar in 2021. The new animals double the the refuge's "big cat" population. The zoo had to make some adjustments in order to provide a proper home.
"We had a cougar area and the doors were only 38 inches high. Tigers are taller so we had to do some reconstruction to make the doors big enough so they could go through easily, did some new fencing and things like that. We just got everything ready to go and we did it all in house," Berman said.
The four new residents are already at the zoo adjusting to their new surroundings.
"They're very nice and laid back and adjusting well so far," Bergman said.
They are scheduled to meet the public for the first time at an event on Saturday, Sep. 10 celebrating Popcorn Park Zoo's 45th year.
The zoo will soon announce a naming contest on its Facebook and Instagram pages.
“These cats will be a welcome addition to the over 200 animals we provide refuge to. More importantly, they will provide an educational experience to the nearly 100,000 people who visit us annually. It is gratifying to know that Popcorn Park’s reputation for sanctuary to wildlife in need extends beyond our country’s borders.” Jerry Rosenthal, CEO of Associated Humane Societies said in a written statement.
The zoo's Big Cat Rescue Fund provides a way to help support the lions and tigers financially. A donation of $10 per month includes free admission to the zoo, a color photo of their animal and updates about them every four months.

Atlantic City casino workers are getting substantial raises and the gambling halls will enjoy four years of labor peace now that all nine casinos have reached new contracts with the industry's main employee union.
On Thursday afternoon, the Golden Nugget reached an agreement with Local 54 of the Unite Here union on a new contract, the last of the city's casinos to ink a deal.
The agreement contains the same basic economic elements as those approved at the other eight casinos, including a $22 hourly rate for housekeeping employees in the fourth year of the contract.
In past contracts, the union had concentrated on preserving health care and pension benefits, but this time sought “significant” pay raises for workers to help them keep pace with spiraling prices for gasoline, food, rent and other living expenses.
It also removes any chance of a strike for the next four years, an important consideration for Atlantic City's casino industry as it tries to return to the business levels it saw before the coronavirus pandemic hit in 2020.
“It's gratifying after long and difficult negotiations for each side to feel that it has been successful,” said union president Bob McDevitt. “The future of the city is secure, the leadership of the industry is sound, and Local 54 will always fight for the rights of workers.”
The union had authorized a strike for Saturday against any casino that remained without a contract.
Thursday's deal with Golden Nugget follows the successful completion of negotiations Wednesday with Resorts casino on a new contract.
"It’s a great deal,” said Resorts president Mark Giannantonio. “We’re really thrilled for the employees. They’ve been working really hard for us, and now we’re happy we can put this behind us and move forward with our business.”
In addition to raises, the agreements reached with the casinos maintain fully funded family health care and pension benefits, language that protects jobs and increases work opportunities, and new technology protections, the union said.
The union reached agreements on new contracts shortly before early July strike deadlines with the Borgata, Caesars, Harrah’s, Tropicana and Hard Rock. Two other casinos, Bally’s and the Ocean Casino Resort, agreed to so-called “me-too” deals, committing themselves to adopt the terms of contracts reached by some of the larger properties in the city.
The union will hold ratification votes on the Resorts and Golden Nugget deals next week, but approval is widely expected.

The PGA TOUR travels to Detroit Golf Club (par 72, 7,370 yards, Bentgrass/POA greens) this week for the Rocket Mortgage Classic. This marks fourth edition of this tournament and the fourth consecutive season this Donald Ross design has hosted the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Defeating Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann in a playoff, Cameron Davis is the defending champion of this event, finishing the week at -18.
After facing a venue in TPC Twin Cities that has water lurking around every corner this past week, Detroit Golf Club only has one single water hazard on site. Combine this with wide fairways, thin rough and large greens, and this par 72 is without a doubt one of the easiest tracks on the annual PGA TOUR schedule. For the first three Rocket Mortgage Classics played at Detroit Golf Club, the average winning score has been -22. Additionally, the cutline has been at least two strokes under par for all three of these tournaments.
With little trouble to worry about off the tee at Detroit Golf Club, players can freely rip their driver at this course, and we have seen the past two champions at this Ross creation finish the event inside the top eight in driving distance. Conversely, Nate Lashley only ranked 44th in the metric when he won the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic in 2019. This shows us any length of player can thrive at this venue, but if juggling between two golfers this week, giving an edge to the longer player certainly makes sense.
Like every course that yields low numbers, having an impressive showing with your irons and flat stick is essential at Detroit Club Golf. Of three champions at this track, two have ranked inside the top 10 in SG APP, and two have either led their field or finished as the runner-up in SGP. Finally, scoring on both the par 4s and 5s is imperative to contend at Detroit Golf Club. At the first two editions of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the winners led their fields in SG on the par 4s. As for the par 5s, the four at this par 72 rank as the four easiest holes on the scorecard, and all three of the first Rocket Mortgage victors ranked in the top five in SG on these holes during their victories.
Following the very weak field at the 3M Open, the Rocket Mortgage Classic is certainly an improvement, with five of the top 20 ranked players in the world competing. Also, it is important to note this is the second-to-last tournament before the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and only the top 125 players in FedEx Cup points will earn a ticket to the first leg of the postseason at the Northern Trust in two weeks. So, when deciding your player pool this week, be sure to be checking each golfer’s FedEx Cup rank, as the players hovering around top 125 will absolutely be extremely motivated to move up the standings this week.
Below, I dive into four of my favorite sub-$7.5K DraftKings value plays for the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Chris Gotterup ($7,400) – Last week at the 3M Open, Gotterup opened the event with a 4-over 75. Instead of mailing it in and calling it a week like most 23-year-old’s would, Gotterup fought back and posted a 4-under 67 on Friday, putting him inside the cutline. Following that dud in the first round, Gotterup went -8 for the final three days of the tournament, en route to a T31 in his debut at TPC Twin Cities. For the week, the Rutgers product ranked inside the top 15 in both SGT2G and SG APP, and he also led the field by a wide margin in driving distance. Gotterup has now advanced to the weekend in four of his first six starts on the PGA TOUR, including a pair of top-10 finishes, one of which was a T4 at the John Deere Classic earlier this month. The bomber should flourish in his first attempt at Detroit Golf Club this week and is vastly underpriced for his potential at this birdie-fest.
C.T. Pan ($7,300) – Ignore that Pan missed the weekend in his lone start at Detroit Golf Club in 2020 and confidently attack the 30-year-old this week. When Pan made his Rocket Mortgage Classic debut two years ago, he was in the midst of an ugly stretch, with his missed cut in Detroit being his seventh in his first nine starts of the new year. This time around, Pan comes into the week making 13 of his past 15 cuts, with six finishes of T31 or better coming during this timeframe. Statistically, the Washington graduate ranks 27th in SG APP and 18th in SG on par 4s across his past 36 rounds. Furthermore, Pan has found a nice groove with his putter as of late, positively gaining strokes on the greens in six of his last seven starts. Pan’s price tag has inexcusably dropped $800 over the last two weeks, making him an easy choice at this cheap salary.
Greyson Sigg ($7,100) – Sigg is playing terrific golf right now, finishing T16, T27, T26 and T7 in his last four starts. That latest result came this past week at the 3M Open, when the 27-year-old showcased some tremendous ball striking, generating 8.9 strokes from T2G and 5.9 strokes on approach, both of which set new career highs for Sigg. Plus, on moving day, the former Georgia Bulldog tied for the lowest round on the course and tied his career low on the PGA TOUR with a 7-under 64 at TPC Twin Cities. Overall, Sigg has impressively finished under par in 13 of his 16 rounds during this four-event stretch. Despite this being his Rocket Mortgage Classic debut, Sigg has top-20 upside this week and is a must-have value at this low price point. While it was for a softer field at the Barracuda Championship, Sigg was priced all the way up to a career-high $9,100 two weeks ago.
Michael Gligic ($7,000) – Gligic recorded a respectable T41 finish at last year’s Rocket Mortgage Classic and should produce an even better result this week behind some outstanding form. The 32-year-old hasn’t missed a cut at eight straight tournaments while shooting even par or better in 26 of these 32 rounds. Half of these finishes have been top-25 results, and this span of eight events has moved Gligic up over 100 spots in the world golf rankings. Over his past 24 rounds, Gligc ranks 17th in BOB%, 11th in SGP, third in SG on par 5s and 31st in driving distance. To top it all off, he will surely be extremely focused this week, currently sitting outside the FedEx Cup Playoffs bubble, ranking 140th in points. Not only is Gligic a steal as a DFS option, but he is a very enticing bet for a top-20 finish at +400 on the DraftKings Sportsbook.
