Quick summary of the science :

Testosterone is a vital hormone primarily produced in the testicles for males and the ovaries and adrenal glands for females. As an androgen, it plays a crucial role in the development of male physical characteristics, such as muscle strength, bone density, and body hair. However, it also contributes to overall health and well-being in both sexes, influencing mood, energy levels, and sexual function.

Testosterone levels in males peak during adolescence and early adulthood, driving critical developmental changes like muscle growth and voice deepening. As men age, these levels naturally decrease, this decline can sometimes result in a condition known as low testosterone, or “low T,” which is characterized by symptoms such as fatigue, reduced libido, and mood changes. Recognizing and addressing low T is essential for creating BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY.
