Testosterone is a male sex hormone that is important for sexual and reproductive development. The National Institutes of Health regards testosterone as the most important male hormone. Women also produce testosterone, but at lower levels than men (but it is still very important in women!)
Testosterone belongs to a class of male hormones called androgens, which are sometimes called steroids or anabolic steroids. In men, testosterone is produced mainly in the testes, with a small amount made in the adrenal glands. The brain's hypothalamus and pituitary gland control testosterone production. The hypothalamus instructs the pituitary gland on how much testosterone to produce, and the pituitary gland passes the message on to the testes.
These communications happen through chemicals and hormones in the bloodstream.
After the age of 30, most people produce between 3-10% less hormones each and every year.
When testosterone therapy is administered correctly it can have both an immediate feel-good effect, as well as long term health benefits.
1. Higher libido
Your testosterone levels factor into your libido. As your testosterone levels decrease, it can cause your desire for sex to also decrease.
2. Improved mood
Testosterone levels can impact your mood. When your testosterone levels are low your symptoms could include depression, anxiety, irritability and other mood changes.
3. More energy
Another symptom of low testosterone can be fatigue and trouble sleeping. By optimizing your testosterone levels it could help boost your energy levels and help you sleep better.
4. Increased muscles
Men and women that have low testosterone levels might notice fat gain and difficulty building muscle. When you combine testosterone therapy with exercise you may notice increased muscle mass.
5. Healthy heart
Testosterone helps red blood cell production through the bone marrow. Low testosterone levels can be linked to a variation of cardiovascular risks.
6. SO much more!
Hormone Pellet Therapy
There are many different options when it comes to testosterone therapy. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s natural hormonal levels. Patients have found that BHRT with pellet implants is extremely effective. Pellets, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy, which can produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient, Qualgen's hormone pellets typically provide consistent and sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to six months!
Since the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic. These pellets are chemically identical to the hormones your body products every day (Qualgen has the purest bio-identical hormone pellets). BHRT is a safe, effective treatment which has been around for over 70 years!
Another option for your hormone replacement therapy is testosterone cypionate. The cypionate is given by injection into the buttock muscle as directed by your provider.
