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 Washington Township, 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 Washington Township, 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:

Westwood Plaza, a faceless strip mall in Bergen County, is now home to one of New Jersey’s most dubious pieces of retail history.
Here lies New Jersey’s last remaining Kmart, a zombified version of the once-omnipresent franchise wading toward its final Blue Light Special. Stowed a few miles off the Garden State Parkway, the lonely store is now one of only three U.S. locations left standing, after the franchise’s Avenel location shuttered in April amid sweeping closures.
Kmart, which opened its first store in Michigan in 1962 (born from a five-and-dime called Kresge’s founded in 1899), once touted dozens of New Jersey locations among its nearly 2,500 North American stores, peaking in 1994. Nostalgic shoppers may recall spinoffs like Super Kmart, Super Kmart Center and Big Kmart.
The Jersey staple was a cheaper and more convenient retail option than the mall, and Kmart offered a little bit of everything — a one-stop shop for clothing, cleaning supplies, appliances, sports equipment, jewelry and more. And if you got hungry from all that perusing, a hot dog or bag of popcorn was ready in the cafe.
“They would have everything you needed,” said Adele, a resident of nearby Piermont, N.Y. who still makes the trip across the state line to visit the Westwood Kmart. “Household items, accessories, toys, kids things. Bicycles, there was a whole line that you could select from.”
But during our visit last week, the lingering big box store was almost empty — more of a derelict, fluorescently lit portal to the past than a functional shopping experience. Shelves were sparse or altogether barren, loosely stocked with Trapper Keepers, above-ground pools and Valentine’s Day cards (it’s June). One corner of the store was completely bereft of merchandise, blocked off to customers by a barricade of shelves. Elsewhere, Adele’s line of bikes was reduced to a dwindling few on an otherwise bare wall.
Yet one aisle remained full: The DVD section, a format made obsolete by the internet — just like Kmart. Posters for movies and TV shows that have since been replaced by sequels and new seasons were still on display: Season 3 of “Stranger Things,” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” both of which were released in 2019.
Only a handful of staff members remain employed at the Westwood location (none were made available to talk to NJ Advance Media), yet they nearly outnumbered the paltry few customers who lurked in the aisles.
When asked if the final Jersey store, first opened in 1982, has plans to close, the store’s manager declined comment and directed NJ Advance Media to contact their corporate office, operated by Illinois-based parent company Transformco, which was not reachable for comment.
But let’s be real — it doesn’t look good.
Washington Township resident Rosanne used to shop at the Kmart in Paramus, which closed in 2014, before she started taking trips to the Westwood store. She’d bring her grandchildren here while babysitting, “just to waste time.” She still finds herself shopping there for herself now. On this day, she was simply looking for a broom.
“I can’t say it’s nostalgic. But it’s convenient,” Rosanne said. “It was around when my kids were little. So you know, it’s been around for a long time.”
She noted that the store’s selection was somehow even more meager just a few months ago, and worse still during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic — less stock was difficult to imagine.
“I hope it stays here,” Rosanne said. “Or, maybe a Walmart.”
While Kmart was never as dominant as Walmart — the Arkansas-based chain has more than 10,000 stores worldwide — it certainly held its own in the battle for New Jersey shoppers’ business through the end of the 20th Century.
Then came a financial crisis and bankruptcy in 2002 along with the closure of hundreds of stores as the company’s CEO was sued by the SEC for misleading shareholders. Sales continued to dwindle, and 326 more locations were shuttered the next year. As Target, Walmart and online shopping became more dominant, Kmart withered. The chain’s biggest impact on New Jersey in recent years was at the West Orange shop, which closed in 2020 and became a COVID-19 vaccine center for Essex County.
When reached by NJ Advance Media, Kmart declined comment on the remaining stores’ profitability or the future of the company.
Could Kmart keep on limping along, with only this lowly trio of brick-and-mortar locations as other shoppers presumably buy online? Perhaps, but judging by how little upkeep was being provided to the Westwood store, imminent closure seems far more likely.
Aiden Martin, a 19-year-old from Hillsdale, used to come to the Westwood Kmart all the time as a kid. He and friends would play hide-and-seek throughout the stores well-stocked aisles and build forts out of toilet paper, seeing if they could stay hidden even after the store had closed.
“There used to be couches everywhere. It’s kind of all gone. Gone with the times, I guess,” Martin said. “It takes a little bit of fun out of my childhood memories to see it completely dead now with nothing. Everything’s cheap. But it’s just like everything’s gone.”

Greg Schiano just added his fourth Florida recruit to his 2023 class when three-star Estero (Fla.) defensive back Jason Duclona picked the Scarlet Knights, two days after his Rutgers official visit concluded.
Duclona announced his decision publicly on social media Tuesday morning.
A 6-1, 175-pounder, Duclona plays in Lee County, one of the best places to live in Florida. Yet, it’s his tenacity and grit, along with his twitch, that makes him one of Rutgers’ top DB targets in this class.
The cornerback-slash-free safety-slash-wide receiver boasts electric speed and good instincts leading to 31 tackles, six pass break-ups and two interceptions last fall. He also caught 30 passes for 576 yards and six scores.
Duclona projects as a cover corner in college, where he can neutralize big receivers with his length and smaller ones with his speed. He will step up and set the edge, forcing the action back inside or making tackles along the end-line.
He’s a lockdown corner on the gridiron, who moonlights as a basketball star and explosive triple- and long-jumper throughout the offseason.
Rutgers, which recruited Duclona for 18 months, served as his first and last official trek. He cancelled his trip to Illinois the following weekend, foreshadowing his pick.
Duclona picked Rutgers over 27 schools, including Illinois, Boston College, Duke, Louisville, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Northwestern, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Washington State, West Virginia, USF, UConn, Temple and others.
Duclona is the fifth official visitor from last weekend to pick Rutgers. The 2023 class now boasts 14 commitments and is ranked No. 38 in the country per 247Sports.

Any child whose parent objects to any part of a school’s instruction can be excused from the lesson.
After nearly 30 years in the classroom, Deptford High School health teacher Deborah Shoemaker has learned how to deftly handle potentially sensitive questions from her students about sex education.
Shoemaker gently sidesteps, and says: “Good question. Go home and ask your parents.”
While districts across New Jersey are struggling how to implement controversial sex education rules from the state Department of Education that, after a two-year delay, take effect in September, Shoemaker and other teachers in the Gloucester County school system have been presenting lessons to meet the Comprehensive Health and Physical Education standards since their adoption in 2020. For the past two years, the district says it has found a comfort level in presenting issues that are developmentally and age appropriate.
For second-graders, for example, students learn about gender stereotypes in a lesson that explains that they could pursue any interest, such as math or science, regardless of gender.
”We’re teaching the topics and standards we think students should know,” said Kevin M. Kanauss, the district’s chief academic officer. “We want to keep it to science as much as we can.”
In the meantime, school officials had been making presentations at school board meetings and fielding questions from parents and community members on how they will tackle revising the curriculum, and many have promised to post the curriculum on their school websites with dates that sensitive topics will be taught to give parents ample time to opt out.
Three guidelines outlining what schools should teach students by the end of second, fifth, and eighth grades have prompted the biggest outcry from some parents and educators. The most controversial concepts revolve around lessons that discuss gender identity by the end of second grade; puberty and masturbation by the end of fifth grade; and understanding types of intercourse (anal, oral, etc.) by eighth grade.
In a recent letter to parents, Moorestown School Superintendent Michael J. Volpe explained how his district would interpret the most controversial standards. Eighth graders will get a lesson on making healthy decisions about sex “in the same way that students learn that ‘ocular’ means having to do with the eye.”
”To be clear, there has never been and will not be explicit instructions about sexual acts,” Volpe wrote. “The definitions will not be covered in other lessons.”
Because the performance expectations from the state are “suggestions” and not requirements, some districts have no intention to address them. In North Jersey, the Garwood school board in Union County voted to reject the standards. Moorestown schools will not discuss “romantic and sexual feelings or masturbation,” Volpe wrote. Districts will be regularly evaluated by the state to determine if their curriculum aligns with the standards.
Some lawmakers and parents, and even state Board of Education members, have called for postponing the new standards to allow the state more time to review them and schools more time to develop lesson plans. But the state board said it was not authorized to delay, and schools must comply with the standards for the 2022-2023 school year.
The issue went viral and sparked heated debate among lawmakers in Trenton and during school board meetings this spring. Some people who oppose the standards believe they are too explicit, and prefer such sensitive subjects should be taught at home. The secretary of Catholic education for the Camden Diocese sent a letter to parents in South Jersey informing them how to opt out of the health instructions.
The state Department of Education has said students should be given age-appropriate information for their physical and emotional well-being, saying children who are unfamiliar with certain sexual acts may not be able to accurately report instances of sexual harm or abuse.
Districts also have the powerto get input from educators and the community. Some local districts, including Cherry Hill, Gloucester Township, Washington Township in Gloucester County, Lawnside, and Wenonah, plan to update their health curriculum this summer.
Cherry Hill School Superintendent Joseph Meloche sought to reassure parents at a recent board meeting that the district “would never put stuff together that’s going to be damaging to children.” The district plans to hire an expert to help revise the curriculum.
“Will it be surprising? Will it be things that kids haven’t heard? Absolutely,” Meloche said. “We have to prepare the kids and get them ready to receive that.”
The Haddonfield school system has hired a consultant to help review the health curriculum and figure out where changes are needed, said Superintendent Charles Klaus.
The curriculum already addresses gender identity in second grade and puberty in fifth grade. The biggest change will be teaching about healthy decisions about sex in the eighth grade instead of 11th grade, he said.
“We are pretty much already doing a lot of this stuff,” Klaus told school board recently. “We can decide what works in our curriculum.”
Gloucester Township school officials are updating their curriculum to teach health ”in a respectful way that honors” the state mandate, but also meet community standards, said Assistant Superintendent Timothy L. Trow. Some teachers are uncomfortable with some of the topics.
“We’re going to try to do it as delicately and quickly as possible,” Trow said.
Deptford is further along than many districts because it began aligning its health curriculum with the new standards for its high school and elementary students when the standards were first released, said Superintendent Arthur E. Dietz. A committee will meet this summer to work on the middle school curriculum, he said.
The curriculum is available online and parents are sent a list of topics, Kanauss of Deptford said. This past year, a handful of parents excused their children from health class for moral or religious reasons, he said.
Dietz, the superintendent, acknowledged that some parents and teachers are uncomfortable with some of the topics, and he sympathizes.
“I would rather teach my own children about these sensitive topics,” he said. “This is very foreign to me.”
Shoemaker, who is retiring this month after 27 years, said she primarily presented lessons at the high school about male and female reproductive systems, STDs, marriage, and parenthood.
“It wasn’t really heavily focused on sex,” Shoemaker said. “Personally, if I had to teach some of this racy staff I would just call out sick.”

LONG VALLEY, NJ — A historic Washington Township business received a $15,000 check from the Morris County Small Business Grant Program today, as the Morris County Board of County Commissioners continues to assist businesses and nonprofits impacted by the pandemic.
Schooley's Mountain General Store, one of New Jersey's oldest continuously operating country markets, was visited by Commissioner Deputy Director John Krickus and Washington Township Mayor Matt Murello.
The $15,000 grant check was presented to owner Peter Aldrich, who has been running the shop's current incarnation since 2006.
The General Store, which opened around 1830, still houses the area's oldest U.S. Post Office and is steeped in the region's rich history, with visits by past U.S. Presidents such as Ulysses S. Grant, William Henry Harrison and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The General Store, like many others in the county, was closed during the early days of the pandemic due to state lockdown orders, and Aldrich says they have slowly worked to rebuild it.
"It's absolutely going to help. It's going to help me get back to where I belong, get me back in the right direction and hopefully get the ball rolling again," Aldrich said.
Morris County Commissioners are personally delivering the grant checks to learn more about small business struggles, to see if the grant program can be improved and to spread the word that the program is still open.
The grant program was established by the Morris County Board of County Commissioners using pandemic relief funds provided by the American Rescue Plan Act. The majority of applications awaiting final approval will award each qualified business and nonprofit the maximum grant amount of $15,000.
Schooley's Mountain General Store is located at 250 Schooleys Mountain Rd and is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
The General Store offers a variety of pizzas, sandwiches and salads. You can check the full menu on their website.
