Testosterone Is a Male Sex Hormone
Testosterone is a sex hormone that is important for men as it is the bio-chemical responsible for most sexual characteristics in men. Testosterone is in other words, the “male sex hormone.” Testosterone is the substance responsible for giving men the physical traits most often associated with being a man– body and facial hair, a deep voice, bigger/stronger muscles and more. During puberty, testosterone will help build muscle, deepens a male’s voice, and increase the size of their testes and penis. During adulthood, testosterone will keep a man’s muscle and bones strong and provides men with their sex drive or libido.
Men’s testosterone levels usually peak in their late teens and then, unfortunately, after the age of 28-30.
Most men start experiencing a slow and steady drop in their testosterone at a rate of 1-2% a year. When a man reaches 40, he’ll have a level significantly lower and if left untreated will experience a myriad of unwanted symptoms. A decline in libido and sex drive typically occurs when T levels fall, just to name a few of the problems that begin to occur. Many men chalk this up to just the natural part of aging and getting older. Fortunately, there are things that Pinnacle Wellness Group can do for you.
