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 Silver Lake, 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 Silver Lake, 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:

The Gold Award is a Girl Scout’s highest achievement, available to girls in high school who drive sustainable change on issues in their communities and beyond. This year’s class of Gold Award Girl Scouts invested over 2,400 hours in taking action to tackle the root causes of so many pervasive issues: teaching about and supporting environmental sustainability, empowering the elderly and women’s health and wellness, advocating for animal welfare, promoting interest and access to STEM and STEAM education, creating accessible spaces, fostering community connection, and so much more.
“Gold Award Girl Scouts gain tangible skills and prove they’re the leaders our world needs,” Heather Coburn, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore Interim CEO, told Gold Award Girl Scouts, their families and friends at a ceremony on June 7th, sponsored by Mike and Lorrie Kzirian at B2 Bistro in Bayville, NJ.
Coburn added, “You have demonstrated dedication to empowering yourself and improving your community. You are now part of the legacy of over 1 million Gold Award Girl Scouts who have made meaningful, sustainable change in their communities and around the world since 1912.”
Teri O’Connor, Board Chair, recognized the 30 teens and said, “The Girl Scout Gold Award acknowledges each recipient’s power and dedication to not only bettering herself, but to making the world a better place for others. They are our future – and it is bright!”

At the ceremony, a variety of recognitions were bestowed upon the Gold Award Girl Scouts including letters from the White House and Governor Phil Murphy, certificates from GSJS and GSUSA, US Senator Bob Menendez and Senator Cory Booker, the Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce and The Military Order of the World Wars, proclamations from Monmouth and Ocean County Commissioners and recognitions from local mayors.
The ceremony was hosted by Alina de Zoysa, Gold Award Girl Scout and sophomore at Washington and Lee University, who told her fellow Girl Scouts, “Our sisterhood is what unites us and what has made Girl Scouts such an enduring part of society for 110 years.”
An energetic keynote speech was delivered by, Lipica Shah, accomplished actor, member of Actors’ Equity Association and SAG-AFTRA, and co-founder of “1497”, an initiative to support and uplift talent of South Asian descent to challenge their under representation in the American film and television industry.

She was a girl delegate, on the inaugural “By Girls, For Girls” National Advisory Committee, earned her Silver Award, and in 2005 was names one of GSUSA’s Young Women of Distinction for her Gold Award project. In 2021 she was appointed to GSUSA’s Young Alum and Lifetime Membership Advisory Committee and is also a member of the NVP Growing Strategies for DEI/RJ Team.
Lipica recalled her time at Girl Scouts and left the girls with this powerful message, “You have made history. And you’re sitting here now, proof that you are fully capable of handling whatever life throws your way, no matter how impossible things may seem. Welcome to the sisterhood. I can’t wait to see what adventure you choose next.”

June 3 through Sunday, June 5. The hours for Friday and Saturday will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and for Sunday will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

From lobster rolls to scallop kabobs, the New Jersey Seafood Festival will satisfy all of your seafood cravings. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, this savory-filled fest is set to run from May 20 to May 22 in downtown Belmar, New Jersey. Known for its beach and boardwalk, you can enjoy ocean views while sampling the varieties of seafood that will be offered. Here’s what you should know if you plan on attending the New Jersey Seafood Festival.
Previously, this festival was held in Silver Lake Park—located across from Belmar Beach—but made the switch to the downtown Belmar area in 2019. With the event making a comeback in 2022, it will mark the 35th year of the New Jersey Seafood Festival. There is no admission fee and no registration required for entry. The festival welcomes both Belmar residents and out-of-town visitors. You will be able to enjoy lots of seafood classics such as coconut shrimp, crab legs, sushi and lobster rolls, amongst numerous other dishes.
Besides seafood, there will be several food trucks located around the area.

Some of the New Jersey Seafood Festival participants include Ragin’ Cajun, Klein’s, Mr. Shrimp, Federico’s and Coney Waffle. Also, you can check out the drink tent being hosted by Belmar’s very own 10th Ave. Burrito Co. This tent will feature wine, margaritas and beers. To enjoy this amenity, you will have to pay a $5 admission fee.
To take a break from the savoriness, you can enjoy some sweet treats located throughout the area. Vendors will be selling funnel cakes, apple fritters, fried Oreos, deep-fried brownies, cannoli cream waffles and ice cream treats.
Throughout the entire festival weekend, visitors will get the chance to also shop at the vendor market. You will find vendors located along the 8th Avenue sidewalk in Belmar, which is not too far from the seafood festival. Other than eating and shopping, there will be entertainment such as live music performances. Among the live music lineup, Pat Roddy Band, Beach Music Studios Kids Rock Band, Danny White Band, Holme, Tommy B & the Deep Blue Sea and Jim Barrone’s Elvis Presley Tribute Band are set to perform.
Each day, the festival will have different starting and ending times. On May 20, the event will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. On May 21, it will begin earlier from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. To conclude the weekend on May 22, it will have the same starting time of 11 a.m. and will end at 6 p.m. This festival will take place rain or shine.

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ — Three Brick Memorial wrestlers came home with medals, with two state champions and a state runner-up at the NJSIAA Wrestling Championships on Saturday.
The Mustangs had seven wrestlers reach the state championships, the pinnacle of the season for the thousands of athletes who take to the mats in December.
Evan Tallmadge, Anthony Santaniello and Harvey Ludington made it through the first two days of wrestling, reaching Saturday's finals, and Tallmadge and Ludington were able to claim crowns at 120 and 175, respectively, with Santaniello taking second in a hard-fought final at 132.
Tallmadge, a senior, finished off his high school career with a 7-3 decision over Luke Stanich of Roxbury. Tallmadge was trailing 3-2 late in the match when he caught Stanich and took him down with less than 20 seconds to go.
"I pancaked him," Tallmadge said.
"He's tough. His hand-fighting was great," which Tallmadge said made it hard to find an edge to get control until the end of the match.
"I wanted this. I needed it. I had to get the second one," said Tallmadge, who won his first state title last April.
"My career would not be complete, even though I'm going to still be wrestling," said Tallmadge, who is headed to the U.S. Naval Academy after graduation. "Two is way better than one."
Ludington, a freshman who moved to New Jersey from Nevada, earned a 5-2 decision over Jared Schoppe of Delsea at 175 pounds. Ludington was aggressive from the opening whistle, relentlessly working to put Schoppe to the mat.
Ludington said he had come to New Jersey because of its reputation as "a wrestling mecca." At Brick Memorial, long a wrestling powerhouse in the state, trips to Atlantic City are commonplace.
Actually making the trip to Atlantic City "exceeded my expectations," he said with a grin.
"It's insane," Ludington said of the boisterous crowds and the fanfare that includes the wrestlers in the finals being introduced in a darkened arena, spotlights on them as their achievements are read off in Lehigh introductions. "It's the coolest thing ever."
Ludington had just one loss, at the beginning of the season in the Mustang Classic, where he said he let up when he got behind.
"I never give up now," he said.
Santaniello, a junior, lost a 2-1 decision to Tyler Vasquez of Delbarton in the 132-pound final. Vasquez got an early takedown and controlled the tempo the rest of the way, never allowing Santaniello to get an opportunity score.
Brick Memorial's Braden Scott (138 pounds), Ryan Smith (150 pounds), Cory Martin (190 pounds) and Sam Azzaretti (285 pounds), all seniors, closed out their high school wrestling careers with a trip to Atlantic City, a year after the championships were reduced to a one-day event by the pandemic.
