When men age, most experience a decline in testosterone production. The medical term is known as endropause. While there is still a heavy debate about the proper way to mitigate this loss, everyone agrees testosterone is linked to man’s vitality.
Several benefits of testosterone include positive impact on depression, joint health, bone density and it also works as a prevention for certain diseases.
Testosterone plays a key role in our lives, in both men and women. If you have a feeling like your life sucks right now, it can actually be that you have low testosterone, so it might be worth getting it checked and if necessary getting a therapy. Testosterone injections aren’t just for bodybuilders, they can be used health reasons as well.
However, even if your testosterone level is low, you might not need to inject yourself with anything, there might be something else going on…
Well, if you are overweight you might be accidentally limiting your natural production of testosterone in your body.
