Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Did you know that testosterone is one of the most important hormones to prevent breast cancer? Testosterone is an essential hormone in both men and women. In men it is primarily produced in the testis. In women it is primarily produced in the ovaries and adrenal glands. Testosterone levels begin to decline at the age of 25 and get lower each year and decade. The benefits of maintaining optimal levels in both men are numerous. Again, by optimal we mean blood levels on the high end for a 20 year old man or women.

Consider what the research shows from the most respected medical journals:

  1. Patients with low testosterone levels 88% of the time die sooner than patients with high testosterone. (Archives of Internal Medicine Shores Study, 2006)
  2. Testosterone has been shown to reduce beta amyloid plaques in the brain which is the underlying cause of alzheimer’s disease.
  3. The lower the free testosterone the higher the chance a patient will have coronary artery disease (which leads to heart attacks)
  4. Testosterone has been shown to reduce inflammation and atherosclerosis (clogging of your arteries)
  5. Low levels of testosterone are associated with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and fibromyalgia. Testosterone replacement has been shown to reduce hemoglobin A1C (marker for blood sugar levels) levels by 17% in diabetics
