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:

After months of not recruiting quarterbacks (after signing four-star future face of the program, Gavin Wimsatt, from out of Owensboro, Kentucky), Greg Schiano re-entered the quarterback hunt May 28, offering one from North Carolina, one from California, and almost one month later, a third from Massachusetts, two of which officially visited. However, all three are committed elsewhere as Rutgers continues to scan the globe for a QB who can lead the team down the road.
Most recently, Schiano offered three-star Spartanburg (Duncan, S.C.) senior Raheim Jeter (on July 30), when Jeter parted ways with West Virginia University, where he had been committed since December 20 of last year.
After touching base with Schiano, Gleeson and staff, Jeter vows to visit Rutgers this summer before joining a new team. But what would the 6-3, 220-pound pass-first, dual-threat bring to Sean Gleeson’s quarterback room if he were to pick Rutgers?
Jeter throws a very catchable ball. He shows good touch and timing on his bucket throws over his receiver’s outside shoulder on fade routes.
He can also navigate the pocket, and will stand in there and take the hit to deliver the ball down the field. He’s a good, deceptive ball handler who can turn a defender’s confusion into a big gain on the ground. Plus, Jeter is big and tough to tackle once he gets a full head of steam, especially on a called run plays.
But, his accuracy stands out most. Jeter sees the game well - keeps his eyes downfield and is always seeking for a receiver to break open. He also makes a variety of window throws which often lead receivers into open space on the field or hit his receivers in their hands in stride.
Jeter has 11 total offers, including Rutgers, Georgia, Auburn, West Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri and Virginia Tech - his Power Five options.
He is ranked the 13th-best senior from South Carolina and No. 44 quarterback in the country. Meanwhile, Rutgers’ 2023 class boasts 16 commitments, but no quarterback, and is ranked 44th nationally by 247Sports.
Per Jeter’s Hudl profile, he runs a 4.8-second 40-yard dash and a 13.09 100-meters. He threw for 2,979 yards and 27 touchdowns (to only 7 INTs) as a junior in 2021.

For better than 40 years, Paul Sacco said he never asked for a raise.
For better than 40 years, the winningest football coach in South Jersey history gave his alma mater everything he had - estimating he’s spent 99.9% of his waking hours doing something associated with St. Joseph (Hamm.) Academy.
And, he says he’d do it again.
The frontrunner for Story of the Year in South Jersey high school football with the season starting in less than a month, Sacco announced Monday that this will be his final season directing the Wildcats.
Sacco enters the 2022 season with a career record of 352-71-5 - the winningest active coach in the state. He decided this would be his final season after meeting with school administrators Monday morning.
“They have a different plan,” Sacco told NJ Advance Media.
“Because it’s so late and so many kids are here, I’ll do what I’ve always done and put the kids first. I’m not going to leave them out to dry. It’s bittersweet you could say. I know who I am. It would have hurt a lot more to walk away from this group of kids. It’s a small group. I couldn’t do that. I’m going to walk this last mile and see what happens after that.”
Stephen Cappuccio, President/Head of School at St. Joseph Academy since October, said the school’s new administration is doing things differently than in the past. There’s a new teaching plan, new academic plan, new sports programs added.
Seeking a change in leadership of the football program was not its plan.
“It was Coach’s decision. We would never force Coach Sacco out … He’s Coach Sacco,” Cappuccio told NJ Advance Media on Monday afternoon. “We got word that he was thinking about resigning. He came in and was going to resign but we asked him if he’d consider staying. It was his decision to stay for the season. We asked him to stay for the sake of the kids, and himself. He’s Paul Sacco, a legend. We want to honor and celebrate that.
“Coach was not forced out. It was his decision. He came to us with his resignation, not the other way around. This caught us off guard. We wanted to give him a couple of options and one was to stay for the season, which he did. As to why he wanted to resign, that’s up to Coach Sacco to answer. We were prepared for Coach to stay for as long as he wanted. We were not looking to make a move on football, let alone in August. Not at all. Why he decided, I don’t know.”
Under Sacco, the program has been known best for its Wing-T offensive attack and an unmatched commitment to the weight room. Sacco, 65, said his plan was to coach another 3-5 years.
“I have so much passion to coach,” he said. “Maybe I’ll become an assistant.
“I’m going to coach my last season the best that I can for St. Joe and whatever happens after that … I’ll walk the last mile the best I can.”
Official practices are slated to begin Aug. 10. Scrimmages can be held a week later, with a host of regular-season openers scheduled for Aug. 26. St. Joseph is set to open its season on Sept. 2 at rival St. Augustine.
St. Joseph Academy released a statement, saying in part: “St. Joseph Academy is thrilled that Coach Sacco has decided to come back for one more year. Coach Sacco’s contribution to SJA, and high school football is truly legendary. Aside from his impact on the eld, Coach Sacco’s best quality is his ability to positively influence the lives of everyone around him. His students, and most importantly his past and present players, can attest to his dedication to St. Joseph Academy. Thanks and gratitude do not adequately represent the sentiment that the entire SJA community has for Coach and Mrs. Sacco and the many lives that they have touched and shaped over the last 40 years. The entire SJA community looks forward to celebrating Coach’s farewell season.”
Sacco will lead the Wildcats with four new assistant coaches. In his 40 seasons at the helm, Sacco has directed the Wildcats to a record 20 state championships in 23 appearances.
St. Joe also won six South Jersey, Non-Public B titles prior to the start of state playoffs. Sacco was an assistant before taking over the program in 1982, winning his first sectional title in 1983.
The Wildcats finished 9-3 overall last season, winning the West Jersey Football League Continental Division. They were unbeaten in division play, knocking off Cherokee, Washington Township, Kingsway, Eastern and Rancocas Valley.
They lost to eventual state champion Red Bank Catholic in the Non-Public, Group B semifinals.
“There’s nothing that I ever dreamed about that we didn’t do in this program,” Sacco said. “I’m proud of that. Nothing would have happened without the great kids, great families.
“I’m thankful. Not too many coaches can say they lasted 40 years at a little Catholic school and be part of greatness.”

The hottest day of summer 2022 may be upon us, but the Farmers’ Almanac is already looking ahead to winter 2022-23.The almanac released its ...
The almanac released its winter forecast on Wednesday, ahead of the latest edition’s release on Aug. 15. The almanac broadly calls for a stormy season in the eastern half of the U.S. and especially frigid temperatures in the North Central U.S., Great Lakes and Northeast.
For a more specific forecast for eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey, lehighvalleylive.com spoke with Sandi Duncan, who works as the Farmers’ Almanac managing editor from her home in Washington Township, Warren County.
“It’s going to be a cold, hard start to the winter,” Duncan said.
The almanac forecasts a nor’easter between Oct. 8-11 but that will be all rain, no snow.
Wintry cold should set in on time this year in December, but the real cold and snow is expected in January, the almanac says. It makes specific calls for snow from Jan. 4-7, 16-19 and 20-23. Endure all that and you’ll be treated to warming temperatures in late February, according to the forecast.
This kind of forecast, months ahead of time, invites skepticism. Regional offices for the National Weather Service, which issues weather watches and warnings, are loathe to offer any weather predictions more than five to seven days ahead of time. The almanac, meanwhile, uses a secret formula to make its predictions.
“We know people want to plan ahead,” Duncan said on the long, early outlook — the first for the season.
The competing Old Farmer’s Almanac will offer its winter 2022-23 forecast on Aug. 30. AccuWeather usually offers its in September, followed by the Weather Channel and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in November.

Amidst an ongoing feud with Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora that has essentially stalled city government, the City Council is preparing to approve a measure that would double their salaries.
The ordinance states Trenton "has many ills," and as a result, council members are forced to "work longer hours, spend more time away from home and defer some career goals."
A position on the council is considered part-time, and council members are paid $20,000 per year.
Under the proposal, that salary would increase to $40,000 per year, with the council president getting an additional $5,000.
Political squabbles have stalled virtually all meaningful legislation in city government, including funding for breathing apparatus for Trenton fire fighters.
A delay in approving a city budget left Trenton on the edge of default until the state stepped in last month.
Guscioria issued a statement condemning the pay raises.
"With council pay raises on the docket," Gusciora said, "Let's hope they have enough time to fit in the business of the city."
The mayor has asked state officials to take over the city's budget, but so far the state has refused.
However, with the Murphy administration clearly monitoring the situation in Trenton, it's unclear if the pay raises would be allowed.
In 2019, the council tried to increase their pay by 50%, but the NJ Department of Community affairs stepped in to clock them. City Council members have not had a pay increase since 2003.
We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.
The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
