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 Westlake, FL, 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 Westlake, FL, 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:

One of the hot topics on the recruiting trail for Texas football this fall has to do with some potential flip targets in the 2023 class. Texas has tried to flip a number of recruits committed to other schools and pulled off one already when it flipped the highly touted four-star Oklahoma Sooners commit and Austin Westlake edge rusher Colton Vasek.
But there are still some recruits committed to the Longhorns 2023 class that other schools are going after on the recruiting trail ahead of signing day. A couple of those hotly-discussed flip targets that are committed to the Longhorns 2023 class are four-star South Oak Cliff cornerback Malik Muhammad, five-star New Iberia Westgate (LA) safety Derek Williams, and five-star Edgewater (FL) running back Cedric Baxter Jr.
The latter of those three Texas commits is the most important recruit for the Longhorns to keep in the 2023 class ahead of signing day given one major suitor on the recruiting trail of late. Baxter is getting heavily pursued by the Florida State Seminoles this fall, which was his favorite school growing up.
Those efforts from Florida State on the recruiting trail this fall resulted in Baxter making two trips to Tallahassee for game weekends in the last couple of months. Baxter visited Florida State unofficially on Oct. 15 to see the Noles’ close one-possession loss to the Clemson Tigers.
And then, Baxter took an official visit to Tallahassee on Oct. 29 to see Florida State convincingly defeat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Florida State kept its foot on the gas with Baxter in the last few weeks, despite him remaining solid on his commitment to Texas at every turn that we’ve heard about.
A report on Nov. 19 from Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports (paid content), mentions comments from Baxter’s dad on the matter of Florida State’s flip efforts with his son and the status of his pledge to Texas. He stated that, despite Florida State’s continued efforts on the recruiting trail with Baxter that the recent video that the Noles staff sent to him “isn’t going to change his mind”.
For context and to those who didn’t see, Baxter posted a video on Twitter on Nov. 19 from Florida State that showed him intertwined with a highlight mix from former Noles’ star running back Dalvin Cook.
This was a good pitch to Baxter given how Cook was one of his favorite players growing up. And this video that Baxter tweeted this week caused quite a stir on social media, and rightly so.
Yet, Baxter’s dad also said that “he’ll be in Texas in January” referring to Baxter’s plans to enroll early and participate in spring ball in Austin.
Texas looks to continue to keep a grasp on Baxter’s commitment with signing day roughly one month away. Head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns do need to end the season on a high note to make sure they keep Baxter’s commitment to Texas firm for the next few weeks.
I will say that we can thank running backs coach Tashard Choice for building such a solid relationship with Baxter that Texas was able to keep him committed through all this pressure to flip from his favorite childhood school in Florida State.
Choice was recruiting Baxter before he replaced Stan Drayton as the running backs coach for the Longhorns last offseason. And he’s continued to build and manage this relationship very well as the Texas running backs coach.
Texas currently holds commitments from 21 recruits in the 2023 class after flipping Vasek last week. Two of the recruits committed to the Longhorns 2023 class are running backs in Baxter and the touted four-star DeSoto product Tre Wisner.

The family behind West Palm Beach’s legendary Okeechobee Steakhouse has announced it will open Lewis Prime Grill later this month.
On Wednesday, November 16, the former Kocomo’s Island Grill space in the Publix at The Acreage Plaza will become home to the Lewis family’s first restaurant in Central Palm Beach County.
The Okeechobee Steakhouse is Florida’s Oldest Steakhouse, owned by the same family and located in the same building since 1947, best known for its classic steakhouse décor and world famous aged Prime steaks.
Previously, the family debuted Lewis Steakhouse in Jupiter in May, Okeechobee Prime Seafood & Steaks in March 2021, the Okeechobee Prime BBQ in 2019, and Okeechobee Prime Meat Market in 2018, with future expansion planned over the next two years.
As the newest addition to the Okeechobee Steakhouse enterprise, Lewis Prime Grill is an upscale American-style bar and grill that brings the true spirit of the area’s most iconic restaurant to the Loxahatchee area. The 120-seat restaurant features classic décor, high-back booths for privacy and a full bar.
The menu features classic and elevated appetizers, salads, fish, and pork dishes as well as the world famous steaks that the Lewis family and Okeechobee Steakhouse are recognized for. Both wine and cocktail connoisseurs can indulge in a robust beverage program featuring a full bar and a renowned wine collection.
Focused on elevating the dining scene in the rapidly growing Loxahatchee and Westlake communities, Lewis partnered with investors Mike and Erika Jackson, Scott Schaefer, Ray Sasser, three longtime Okeechobee Steakhouse managers — Christina Wishart, Luis Fernandez and Kyle Blake — and executive chef Jamie Steinbrecher to bring Lewis Prime Grill to life.
“We saw what was happening in Loxahatchee, the growth underway and the plans for future expansion, and we knew the area was ripe for a superior dining destination,” said Ralph Lewis, owner. “When the Kocomo’s location became available, our vision for Lewis Prime Grill rapidly became a reality.”
The menu will offer appetizers to include Point Judith Crispy Calamari, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, All Natural Chicken Wings, and Fried Lobster; salads featuring Classic Caesar, Signature Roasted Beet Salad, and Asian Thai Chicken Salad; entrees such as Korean Style Wagyu Beef, Double Cut Grilled Pork Chop, Pan Seared Organic Salmon, the Lewis Prime Burger; and a variety of steaks that the Lewis family and Okeechobee Steakhouse are consistently recognized for. Both wine and cocktail connoisseurs will find a robust beverage program featuring a full bar and a well-curated wine collection.
Lewis Prime Grill is located at 7040 Seminole Pratt Whitney Rd., Loxahatchee; 561-619-5115; open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday; lewisprimegrill.com.

London-based Paysafe Ltd., a financial technology company that offers payment services, announced Nov. 14 it will open its North American headquarters in Jacksonville and hire 600 workers.
Paysafe is seeking $10 million in city incentives and $3 million in state assistance as part of the deal. The state money is from the High-Impact Performance Incentive program.
“Paysafe’s decision to establish its headquarters in Jacksonville further solidifies Florida as the top destination to grow a business,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a news release.
At a news conference at the JAX Chamber headquarters, Paysafe said some jobs will be created and some employees will transfer from other offices over the next three years. It expects to have 200 employees by the end of 2023.
Paysafe CEO Bruce Lowthers said the company is in negotiations for office space.
“The decision to expand our presence in the US with a new North American headquarters in Jacksonville was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” Lowthers said in a news release.
“Jacksonville is a vibrant business hub and rich with diverse talent from well-known academic institutions, as well as a number of high-profile Fortune 500 companies,” he said. “We look forward to building a high-performing team here over the next few years and becoming an active member of the local community.”
Before becoming Paysafe CEO in May, Lowthers spent 15 years at Jacksonville-based Fidelity National Information Services.
There are more Paysafe connections to Jacksonville.
In March 2021, Paysafe merged with Foley Trasimene Acquisition Corp. II.
Foley Trasimene is a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, that was founded by Bill Foley, chairman of Fidelity National Financial Inc.
“We are thrilled to complete this business combination with Paysafe,” Foley said in a news release about the deal in 2021.
“Paysafe has the right assets, team and strategy in place to capitalize on a tremendous opportunity for long-term value creation in the payments industry.”
Foley relocated from Jacksonville to Las Vegas when he was awarded the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights expansion team in 2016.
Also, Black Knight CEO Anthony Jabbour, who is on the board of Jacksonville-based Dun & Bradstreet, is on the Paysafe board of directors.

The top-ranked senior in Florida and No. 8 overall player in his class, Stewart is one of. The 6-foot-8 Duke signee transferred from Windermere (Florida) to national powerhouse Montverde for his senior year.
After helping Link Academy reach the championship game at GEICO Nationals in its inaugural season, Biliew decided to play his senior year at his old home, Waukee. The 6-foot-8 five-star is the highest-rated signee in Iowa State history.
A consensus five-star recruit, Holland put up 15.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game as a junior for Duncanville. The top-ranked senior in Texas recently announced he will be staying home and playing college basketball for the Longhorns.
Stevenson was good for 20.6 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game last season, the first in Seaforth history. The 6-foot-9 junior holds offers from UNC, Florida State, Virginia, Georgetown and more.
Boozer didn’t play like a freshman last year when he and his twin brother Cayden led Columbus to an FHSAA 7A state title, and it looks like they’re in store for a dominant sophomore campaign. Cameron, the son of former NBA star Carlos Boozer, is the No. 1 overall player in 247Sports’ initial rankings for the class of 2025.
The Ohio State signee averaged 19.6 points per game as a junior, helping Pickerington Central win an OHSAA Division I state title. He’ll be reuniting in Columbus with his best friend and former teammate Sonny Styles, a highly-touted freshman for the Buckeyes’ football team.
Dunlap will lead the charge for the No. 12 team in the preseason SBLive/Sports Illustrated Power 25 national rankings. The Notre Dame signee powered Harvard-Westlake to the CIF Southern Section Open Division championship last season, averaging 17 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.
Freeman is the No. 4 power forward in the class of 2024, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Iowa, Marquette, Georgetown, Maryland and a host of major programs are pursuing the 6-foot-8 junior.
Hardaway is the son of NBA legend and current Memphis Tigers head coach Penny Hardaway. His dad was a dynamic point guard, but at 6-foot-7, Ashton is more of a stretch four who can knock down threes at a high percentage. He’ll be playing alongside Bronny James and Justin Pippen, the sons of LeBron James and Scottie Pippen, as part of the No. 15 team in the nation entering the 2022-23 season.
The No. 3 overall sophomore in the country, Peat turned heads as a freshman while posting 15.6 points and 6.3 rebounds per game for the 6A state champions. Combined with five-star Colorado commit Cody Williams, the two lead the way for one of the top public school teams in the nation.
Jones plays for the alma mater of Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, and he wears the same number (21) as him. The 6-foot-9 junior has offers from North Carolina State, Florida, LSU and more.
The top-ranked senior at his position and No. 5 overall recruit in the class of 2023, Mgbako can do it all. The 6-foot-8 Duke commit made the move to national power Roselle Catholic for his senior year and teamed up with five-star point guard Simeon Wilcher, a North Carolina commit.
Wilson had a breakout freshman year for Holy Innocents’, putting up 16.2 points and 7.3 boards per game. The 6-foot-8 five-star holds offers from Alabama, Indiana, Xavier and more heading into his sophomore campaign.
The No. 1-ranked sophomore in Nevada, Nwuli plays with a physicality beyond his years. The 6-foot-7 four-star has offers from UCLA, Louisville, Washington State and Arizona State after one year at the high school level.
Momcilovic is a 6-foot-8 three-level scorer, making him a nightmare to match up with defensively. The 6-foot-8 Iowa State signee is the top-ranked senior in Wisconsin and No. 32 overall player in the class of 2023.
A 6-foot-10 force on the boards, Williams was the top-ranked recruit to sign with UCLA when the early signing period opened. The big man is running mates at Corona Centennial with five-star Duke signee Jared McCain, one of the top combo guards in the nation.
Miller is one of the top-ranked juniors from the Lone Star State. The 6-foot-9 forward is currently being recruited by Alabama, LSU and Washington State, among others.
A 6-foot-8, walking double-double is the best way to describe this four-star forward. The No. 1 senior in Arkansas, Marshall signed his letter of intent to play college basketball for Ole Miss.
Jefferson burst onto the scene as a freshman, averaging 14.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game as a freshman. Going into year two, he’s being chased by the likes of Texas A&M, LSU, Oklahoma State and more.
The No. 2 sophomore from the Hoosier State, Sisley dropped 19.9 points and 9.2 rebounds per game as a freshman. Indiana, Purdue, Michigan State and Ohio State are some of the college programs going after the versatile 6-foot-8 forward.
