Did you know as men age they lose 1% of their testosterone every year?
This means that most men are suboptimal by their mid 40s. Decreased energy, mood, libido, sleep, and increased body fat are all associated with this decrease in testosterone.
Learn all about natural, bioidentical hormones including the single biggest factor in male aging – loss of testosterone – and how it can be reversed to make you stronger, leaner and increase overall vitality. With proper balancing of your hormones you can decrease the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and many other illnesses.
- Growth Hormone (HGH)
Andropause, otherwise known as the male menopause, is characterized by a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flashes in men, erectile dysfunction, low libido, irritability, muscle loss, mid abdominal weight gain, and fatigue that are the result of low levels of testosterone.
While estrogen levels in women decline after menopause, just the opposite occurs in men. Along with declining testosterone production, men actually experience rising estrogen levels. This is evidenced by increased abdominal fat and shrinking of muscle mass.
The loss of testosterone along with declining Human Growth Hormone (HGH) contributes to the familiar “pot belly” and declining muscle tone in middle-age men. Energy levels usually drop, as do sexual desire and function. These symptoms of low testosterone sometimes manifest as depression and lack of motivation, which is a common psychological complication of hormonal imbalance.
The steady decline in male hormone levels manifests itself as deterioration in physical, sexual and cognitive function. We see this in our decreased interest in sex, difficulty in having and maintaining an erection, decreased sexual satisfaction, as well as fatigue, irritability and muscle/joint pain and a decline in lean muscle mass even when working out.
