As men get older, testosterone levels begin to drop. For most men this change begins between the ages of 30 to 40. However, younger men can also experience a drop in testosterone levels, which can affect their health – both mentally and physically. Low testosterone can impact on a man’s ability to build muscle, his general fitness and his mood. If a man is not producing enough testosterone, he runs a higher risk of suffering from heart disease, osteoporosis, and a number of other life threatening conditions. However, when testosterone levels are brought back to normal levels through testosterone therapy, the human body becomes stronger and healthier.

Depression

One of the greatest barriers to human health and wellbeing is depression. Low testosterone is a major contributor to depression in men. It is exceptionally difficult for a man to build muscle mass when his testosterone is low. However, when you add the fact that low testosterone promotes depression, you have a recipe for disaster. A person who is suffering from depression due to low testosterone is much more likely to put on weight. The heart of a person with low testosterone is already at risk, without the added strain of extra body fat. Testosterone therapy will help with emotional wellbeing, which, in turn, will help motivate you to pursue a healthier, active lifestyle.

Cardiovascular Diseases

People with peak level testosterone production are less likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases. Testosterone promotes a health cardiovascular system, which allows your body to supply blood and oxygen to vital organs. When testosterone levels are adequate, the human body is much more capable of building muscle mass rather than fat. People who have gone through testosterone therapy are much healthier and stronger than those with low testosterone. When your testosterone levels are at their peak, you are less likely to suffer from heart disease than when levels drop. There is also a significant reduction in the chance of suffering from osteoporosis.

Muscle Mass

A healthy male Body Mass Index (BMI) relies on the production of testosterone. As testosterone is a hormone, it can affect your body in a number of ways. The inability to produce sufficient levels of testosterone can affect a man’s metabolism, causing a lack of energy and an increase in body fat. By increasing testosterone levels, a man will feel much more energetic and able to pursue the physical exercise required to maintain a healthy BMI.
