Testosterone increases muscle mass especially when combined with a resistance or training exercise program. More muscle mass and strength means better metabolism and higher quality of life. Most men report better recovery from their workouts and find that they can workout more intensely once started on testosterone replacement therapy. The increased metabolism resulting from increased muscle reduces fat and improves overall body composition. By reducing fat the risks of diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and heart disease go down.
A high concentration of testosterone receptors exists in the brain. Testosterone is essential for healthy brain function and can improve mood swings and irritability that many men experience as well as depression. Men sometimes display indecisiveness and loss of confidence with aging, both of which can be improved with testosterone therapy.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy has many cardiovascular benefits too. The highest concentration of testosterone receptors is in the heart. Which makes sense since the heart is a muscle that is contracting roughly ever second. Testosterone improves blood flow by acting as a vasodilator and helps to repair damaged endothelium or inner lining of blood vessels. Testosterone can help lower blood pressure.
A higher level of well-being and a life brimming with more energy is commonly seen after testosterone replacement therapy.
The only accurate way to detect the condition is to have TrimBody M.D. (or your doctor) measure the amount of testosterone in your blood. TrimBody M.D. prefers, if possible, to test levels early in the morning since this is when testosterone levels are at their highest.
