Male Hormones

Male HormonesIf you’re like millions of men who want to feel young and vital again, we’re here to show you A NEW WAY TO AGE. Did you know that women are not the only ones who suffer from a decline in hormones as they grow older? In fact, men also experience hormone change. Those symptoms you’ve been feeling, like reduced sex drive, lack of energy, increased belly fat, loss of muscle mass and moodiness, very likely come from your hormone imbalance.

What is Andropause?

When you were young, you produced large amounts of needed androgens, hormones that affect the male reproductive system, like testosterone. Your body also produced small amounts of estrogen, resulting in a desired high testosterone to estrogen ratio. “Andropause” is the male equivalent of menopause, characterized by a drop in testosterone, and an increase in estrogen. These hormone changes disrupt your healthy balance, causing the negative effects you may feel. Testosterone is crucial for men, and the need goes way beyond muscles, moods, and sex drive. A lack of testosterone can increase your risk for chronic disease, and has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and prostate cancer. So restoring a healthy hormone balance is not only important to help you feel good — it’s also necessary to protect your health. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help you reverse andropause. With BHRT, you take hormones which are identical to the ones produced by the human body. Replenishing the hormone DHEA, for example, can provide testosterone support, but if higher levels are necessary, the next step would be prescription testosterone. Testosterone is available in patches, injections, creams, gels and pellets, each providing different benefits and side effects.
