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 South Bound 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 South Bound 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:

Most people don't pay any attention to them, since they've been around for a generation or more.
They are 8-foot-tall posts with a sign that reads, "WARNING Transcontinental Cable Route Do Not Dig Anywhere in this Area..."
They have a peaked small metal covering on top with a large three-digit serial number.
These signs look ominous enough, almost going back to the radiation fallout signs on buildings years ago.
They started popping up around the time those signs started going away, although one has nothing to do with the other.
But if you're from that generation, it does make you pause and wonder what danger there is.
The only danger would be a mass interruption in landline communications in your area and beyond if you dug deep enough and damaged one of those heavy cables buried deep in the ground beneath those signs.
AT&T started replacing old copper wire cables back in the late 1980s.
They usually run in a line that sometimes crosses roads.
You'll see a group of them for a while along a road and then they seem to disappear into the woods or a housing development.
We've all seen them from time to time and never given much thought to where they start or where they end up.
These in my town run along Jackson Road in Medford, originating in Philadelphia and ending up in Atlantic City.
There is a port in Tuckerton where the cables run across the Atlantic and down to South America.
These cables run across the continent and under the Atlantic Ocean and around the world.
There's no danger above them, just don't dig anywhere near them.

The whole world has seen them on the screen, but Somerset County residents drive by them every day.
And now, they can get a reward for a visit.
Six Somerset County restaurants that have been featured on food media will be highlighted on the new As Seen On Trail, which Somerset County Tourism launched online on Friday, Nov. 11.
To receive a free mobile passport to participate in the trail, visit visitsomersetnj.org/as-seen-on-somerset/. The first 500 people who check in to all six locations using the mobile passport will receive a free retro T-shirt, inspired by the throwback theme of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
The trail was encouraged by the success of Somerset County Tourism’s Sip and See Trail, a self-guided tour that launched in June in which visitors collect a stamp for a passport as they visit each of the county’s six craft beverage destinations.
“This trail is definitely not to compete with Sip and See, but we wanted to create something that people of all ages could do, families could do together and people who don’t drink alcohol could enjoy,” said Melissa DeFreest, vice president of tourism and communication at the Somerset County Business Partnership. “Plus, a lot of restaurants have told us, ‘We appeared on so-and-so, but we’re not sure how to promote it.’ We took the theme of those places and created those links to make a cohesive trail.”
Somerset County foodies may notice that a few restaurants that have appeared on food media are not yet included on the trail. That’s because each restaurant must agree to be on the trail by sharing information with the mobile passport. DeFreest hopes that eventually, all local restaurants that have been featured on food media will find time to upload their information to the mobile passport.
Eight county restaurants have been featured on food media, including “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports’ One Bite Pizza reviews, and the Food Network’s Macy's Thanksgiving Cake Spectacular competition.
“I like to think that we have been able to draw a lot of different and eclectic eateries that have been able to showcase what they do and what they do well,” said DeFreest. “I think it’s nice for studios to get out of major cities and come to more suburban areas to get that off-the-beaten-track feel. You’re not getting a mass-produced item here. You’re getting something from a mom-and-pop place that’s really the lifeblood of the area.”
Here are the now-famous food destinations featured on the As Seen On Trail:
Big Pinks BBQ may be a “broken-down food truck,” as Guy Fieri said on the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” episode featuring the truck on July 29, but at least its smoker works. The truck, owned by Martin Gleason and parked at 483 Union Ave., is known for its smoked meats and sandwiches, as well as 13 different sauces. The menu is inspired by different cities and flavors throughout the country.
The episode featured two Big Pinks BBQ sandwiches, including the Abe Frohman, a house-made sausage sandwich on a potato roll topped with American cheese, onion rings and sauces, inspired by Gleason’s favorite movie, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” The episode also featured the Big Pink, a towering 8-inch sandwich filled with various truck-made meats including brisket, pulled chicken, pulled pork and sausage, topped with several sauces, a blend of four Italian cheeses, and onion rings on an onion roll.
Go: 483 Union Ave, Bridgewater; 908-334-5685, bigpinksbbq.com.
Karin Giamella’s creative and colorful bakery is known for its custom cakes and cupcakes, and that’s what it did best in 2018 at the Food Network’s Macy's Thanksgiving Cake Spectacular competition. The decade-old local staple won the cupcake portion of the contest for both taste and presentation with its orange-scented cupcake filled with Cointreau ganache and topped with cranberry Swiss buttercream, sugared cranberries and fondant painted leaves inside a chocolate cornucopia.
Those who visit the bakery for an As Seen On Trail stamp will receive one free scoop of ice cream. The Blue Sheep Bake Shop on Division Street also offers items such as French macarons, ice cream sandwiches, cookies and stuffed cookies, fudge brownies, dessert bars and more. Trendy and holiday-themed sweets also are frequently added to the menu.
Go: 9 Division St., Somerville; 908-393-1824, bluesheepbakeshop.myshopify.com.
The Chimney Rock Inn has been around in some form since 1863 — a fact that baffled Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports during his January visit for a One Bite pizza review. The long-running Bridgewater staple, which also has a Flemington location, is known for its thin-crust pizza, which earned it a 7.6 out of 10 from Portnoy.
At “The Rock,” pies come in a variety of styles, including the gluten-free pie, 30-inch Epic pie and Rock ’55 classic pie. Other more outlandish varieties include a pretzel-crust macaroni and cheese pizza, a vegan chili pizza and a Mexican pizza.
Go: 800 North Thompson Ave., Bridgewater; 732-469-4600, chimneyrockinn.com.
Following a visit from Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports during his January visit for a One Bite pizza review, wait times at DeLucia's Brick Oven Pizza stretched to two hours — and for good reason. The 105-year-old pizzeria earned a 9.4 out of 10 from Portnoy, which tied it in second place out of the more than 1,000 pizzerias that Portnoy has reviewed. Those who visit the pizzeria for an As Seen On Trail stamp will receive 10% off their order.
'I'm with pizza legends now':DeLucia's in Raritan has 2-hour wait after celebrity review
“Is this the best pizza I’ve ever had? It’s 100% in the conversation,” Portnoy said in his review. “You drive 3-4 hours for this pizza. Absolutely spectacular.” Since the review, customers have come from as far as Pittsburgh, Maine, Maryland and Miami for the pizza, which is made in the same brick oven that owner Christian DeLucia’s great-grandfather used when he opened the pizzeria in 1917.
Go: 3 1st Ave., Raritan; 908-725-1322, deluciasbrickovenpizza.com.
Just weeks after Guy Fieri of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” headed to Big Pinks BBQ and Turf Surf & Earth this summer, he went to Joe's Meat Market, a South Bound Brook deli and butcher shop.
Joe’s Meat Market has been open for 30 years and carries meats, cheeses, bread, salads, pizza and sweets, according to its website. Its products include Boar's Head deli meats and cheeses, as well as a butcher shop where they prepare homemade sausage and kielbasa.
Go: 28 Main St., South Bound Brook; 732-356-4557, joes-meatmarket.com.
“Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” isn’t all about grease and cheat meals. In July, Guy Fieri visited Turf Surf & Earth, a fast-casual restaurant featuring customizable sandwiches, salads, tacos and rice platters with plenty of healthy and plant-based options. It also offers breakfast entrees and signature coffee drinks.
Those who visit Turf Surf & Earth for an As Seen On Trail stamp will receive 15% off their order. The eatery is owned by Byron Salazar, who also owns Turf N Surf Burger Grill in Warren.

You read that right: the Garden State will once again make an appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. This time, restaurateur and television personality Guy Fieri will highlight Joe’s Meat Market.
Located at 28 Main St. in South Bound Brook, the deli and butcher shop has been serving New Jersey since 1991.
Per their website:
“We take great pride in offering our customers with a wide range of meats, cheeses, bread, salads and sweets. Our recipes for quality include only the freshest ingredients.”
Sounds good to me!
“Also our pizzeria features the very best pizza you have ever had.”
OK … that’s a BOLD claim to make about pizza in New Jersey, but I appreciate how much they believe in their products.
The owners announced their exciting message about appearing on the Food Network’s popular show in a Facebook post on Sunday.
Fieri visited them on April 2nd where he “generously shared his time in the kitchen with Chef Giovanni, and boy did they cook up some great dishes.”
Based on the dishes I’ve already seen of theirs, I can only imagine how delicious what they created will be.
Take a look at some of what they have to offer.
That’s the aforementioned Chef Giovanni with a plate of Penne Vodka that is making my mouth water just looking at it.
This is their sub with rib eye steak topped with melted provolone cheese with a garlic butter aioli. The toasted bread looks perfectly crispy.
They claim you haven’t lived until you tried their 'OMG burger.' It’s served on Texas toast with a side of fries and a pickle.
Lastly this is Joe’s Cheeseburger Pasta Bake and it’s practically food porn.
Or I’m just a sucker for gooey cheese.
The Joe’s Meat Market episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives is set to air on Friday, August 12th at 9pm on the Food Network.

The Somerset County Board of County Commissioners awarded Open Space funding totaling $800,000 that will bring pickle ball courts, a community pavilion and a community garden to the county. The grants, provided to Bernardsville, Hillsborough, and Bedminster respectively, are “part of a commitment by the Commissioners to ensure every Somerset County resident can benefit from the county Open Space funds.”
“We’ve learned over the past two and a half years of COVID how important outdoor recreation is to living a healthy, full life in Somerset County,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Melonie Marano, liaison to the Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC). “The Recreational Grant Program ensures that no matter where you live in Somerset County, there’s an outdoor facility nearby you can enjoy with your friends and family.”
South Bound Brook’s Memorial Park Pavilion is nearing completion following its funding as part of Somerset County’s Recreational Open Space Grant program in May 2021.
Early last year, the Somerset County Board of County Commissioners expanded the Recreation Grant Program established in 2008 for turf athletic fields to include funding for active and passive municipal recreational spaces such as athletic facilities, picnic areas, trails, exercise paths, gardens, and more. The goal of the County Open Space Preservation Program is to continue to aggressively pursue the acquisition of land for open space, but to also ensure Open Space funding is fairly distributed to communities without available tracts of land.
As of July 2022, the program has provided almost three million dollars for nine projects and is expecting to fund additional projects in the coming months. The currently funded projects are:
Municipalities interested in funding under the Recreation Grant Program must have a well-developed, preferably “shovel-ready” project, with estimated costs. Funding requests can be made in writing to Thomas Boccino, PP, LLA, Supervising Planner-Preservation, 20 Grove St., Somerville, NJ 08876 or [email protected]. If the application meets the criteria of the program, the municipality will be asked to make a presentation to the Open Space Advisory Committee. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with no annual deadline for submission, allowing municipalities to submit when ready.
