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 Saddle Brook, 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 Saddle Brook, 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:

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – By the time they had power restored to the scoreboard at Depken Field, it was already 14-0 Hasbrouck Heights. They would need the scoreboard to keep the tally, as the Aviators defeated Saddle Brook, 56-0, in a NJIC Meadowlands Division contest.
The thunderstorm that rolled through earlier in the day knocked out power to most of Hasbrouck Heights for a short time Friday afternoon. The one part that didn't come back was the Route 17 corridor between Williams Ave and Franklin Ave, including a bank of lights and the scoreboard at Depken Field.
The Aviators' offense was dominant against the Saddle Brook defense, scoring on every possession.

The game got off to an inauspicious start, as the Aviators were penalized on the first play for 12 men on the field. But Jake Summers just ran through the Falcons defense, carrying eight times for 74 yards, keeping the chains moving despite two more false start penalties.
Quarterback Frank Billings hit Michael Napolitano on a fourth and ten at the Saddle Brook 15 on a 14 yard pass down the middle for a first and goal at the one. Billings powered in from one yard, and George Kouletas kicked the extra point for a 7-0 lead.
The Aviators second drive was brief, after shutting down the Saddle Brook offense it took just two plays to score again. Following another false start, Billings ran for 10 yards and then Summers broke through the middle of the Saddle Brook line for a 44-yard touchdown run and a 13-0 lead. Kouletas kick made the score 14-0.
The second quarter saw the power restored to the scoreboard, and the Aviators continued to move the ball. After taking over the ball at the 39, Billings scampered 24 yards to the 15, with Saddle Brook picking up a roughing penalty moving it half the distance to the seven. An offside penalty moved the ball to the four, where Billings hit Evan Werner with a shovel pass which he took around the right end for a touchdown, and following the extra point, a 21-0 lead
By now the Hasbrouck Heights defense was shutting the Falcons' offense out cold, and following another three and out, it took the Aviators just one play to make the score 28-0, as Billings and Werner combined on another shovel pass, this one 39 yards, and a commanding lead.
Hasbrouck Heights added one more score before halftime, as Billing rushed in from 18 yards for a 34-0 lead. Kouletas’ fifth extra point made the score, 35-0.
The second half began with a running clock, and the Aviators reserves in the game.
But following a punt return, Daniel Amendola and Michael Napolitano connected on a 26-yard shovel pass, and Brady Shine made the extra point to push the lead to 42-0.
Amendola and Shine would find the end zone with an 11-yard shovel pass to make the score 49-0 on the final play of the third quarter, following two impressive runs from Domonic Aiosa.
The final play of the game was the Aviators’ final score, as Amendola shoveled the ball to Jayden Chicaiza, who broke through the Saddle Brook defense for a 41 yard touchdown.

Describing the transaction as one of the largest and most complex completed in the state this year, Sitex Group is now just the second owner, ever, of the 640,000-square-foot Zuckerberg’s Industrial Park in Saddle Brook.
On Sept. 14, the Englewood-based vertically integrated real estate private equity firm told NJBIZ exclusively that it acquired the 40-acre, 50-building campus located at 300 N. Midland Ave. in an off-market transaction.
According to Sitex, the sale marks the first time the industrial property, closely held by the Zuckerberg family for three generations, has changed hands.
“We are thrilled to acquire the park,” stated Sitex Principal Blake Chroman. “Buying an industrial park of this size in prime infill New Jersey – particularly in Bergen County – is incredibly rare. Over the past decade, we built a relationship with the sellers and always hoped that we would own it someday. We are grateful that the Zuckerberg family selected us to be the new owners.”
Added Sitex Vice President Jackson Kaplan, “We have the right team in place which enabled us to navigate the complexities of this transaction and swiftly close.”
Offering high visibility and convenient access to Interstate 80, the Garden State Parkway and the Ports of Newark/Elizabeth, Newark Liberty International Airport and New York City, Zuckerberg’s Industrial Park also includes a 4-acre trailer parking lot, Sitex said.
According to Colliers’ most-recent report on the sector, sales volume in the industrial space bounced back in the second quarter of the year – despite rising interest rates. That brought total volume to $793.4 million for the period, according to the firm, which surpassed four of the past five quarters, dating to Q1 2022.
Average sales prices were up, as well, by 14.3% year over year, producing the highest quarterly average on record, according to Colliers.
Financial terms of the Zuckerberg’s deal were not disclosed. According to its website, Sitex acquires properties on an all-cash basis.
In addition to consistent ownership over the complex’s history, Sitex its tenancy, saying that Zuckerberg’s Industrial Park has sustained more than 90% occupancy over its 30-year history.
Current tenants include: UPS, ServePro and Johnstone Supply as well as many local operators.
Specializing in the New York and New Jersey markets, Sitex has continued to expand its portfolio in 2023. In April, the firm announced it had acquired $250 million in transactions in the region since the start of the year, including properties in Edison and Rutherford.
“This was a very unique acquisition opportunity and is another example of our longtime strategy of buying and repositioning industrial properties in key infill locations throughout New York and New Jersey,” said Chroman.
Sitex has plans to modernize the property immediately, according to Chroman, with work starting Thursday for improvements including paving, lighting, new signage and updated building interiors.
