The most common hormone problem for men is loss of testosterone. In studies lack of testosterone commonly manifests as decreased libido, lower muscle mass, loss of strength and stamina, impotence, osteoporosis, heart disease, sleep disorders, depression, and anxiety. Commonly termed “andropause” or “male menopause” these symptoms are related to a decrease in the body's level of testosterone with a corresponding increase in estrogen. Testosterone supplementation allows you to restore your body’s natural balance and make you feel more like yourself.
