Numerous changes are associated with an age-related decline in the hormone testosterone. Some men may go through a rather sudden change in testosterone levels that might correlate with the hormonal changes that women experience at menopause. However, most men have a slower and more subtle hormonal decline experiencing symptoms over a period of time.

Symptoms of testosterone deficiency are often attributed to other problems, denied by the patient, and unrecognized by the physician. Andropause – the male menopausal – may consist of a variety of signs and symptoms.

Male menopause (Andropause) is part of the aging process in men that begines around the age of forty. It is caused by the slow decline of Testosterone. Restoring Testosterone to optimal levels can reverse some parts of the aging process and result in a better, longer, brighter, and more vital life.

Testosterone is key in the manufacturing of bone, forms muscle, and improves oxygen uptake throughout the body. Testosterone also helps control blood sugar, weight, helps regulate cholesterol and maintain a powerful immune system. Testosterone appears to help in mental concentration and improves mood. A deficiency in Testosterone is easy to diagnose and treat. Almost complete resolution of symptoms results from early initiation of treatment. For optimal results, it is vital that hormone replacement therapy be combined with adequate exercise, proper nutrition, and appropriate use of natural supplements.
