Testosterone: The Key to Perfect Male Health

 In the male body, there are several hormones that are fully responsible for the male characteristics, and there a distinct difference from the female and these hormones are classified as androgens. Androgenic hormones are referred to as masculinizing hormones and testosterone are counted as the chief androgenic hormone. Testosterone plays a huge role in the health of the male gender that anything that affects its supply within a male will ultimately interfere with the male and its capability of behaving and performing as one.

Testosterone is produced by the Leydig cells that are found in the testes of males and even though it is present in the females, its quantity is not the same hence the effects seen in the male are not present in the female. Testosterone over and above determining the sexual desire in the men, it is responsible for the growth and development of the male sex organs, and it is what determines the libido.

One of the key differences between the male and the female is the bone density and this is one of the roles played by testosterone, in that it is central in determining the growth of bones by influencing the retention rate of calcium and phosphates. This enables the bones to be hard enough and prevent osteoporosis; a condition that is characterized by the loss of bone mass leading to the brittleness of the bones. Testosterone encourages the growth of muscles, this makes then anabolic and is the major reason behind its classification as a controlled substance in sports. In its anabolic nature, testosterone determines the flowing of fluids in cells by encouraging the male cells to retain sodium, chloride, potassium, nitrogen that in turn leads to water retention.

It goes without saying that Testosterone is the key hormone behind the deepening of the male voice, the presence of hair and the distribution of body fat in men. Its production peaks during puberty but reduces at a steady rate after the age of 30. This reduction in the level of this vital hormone to the male has consequences to the body and anything that can be done to maintain its levels within normal range helps to maintain the male in peak performance. Reduction in the level of testosterone in the body does more than lower the libido but in some cases has been identified as the reason for erectile dysfunction.

Low levels of this hormone has been known to cause the reduction of muscle mass, increased amount of fat storage around the abdomen, decreased energy levels which might even lead to sleep apnea and the general slowing of functionality. Male health is hugely determined by this hormone and applying testosterone cream on the skin can help maintain the levels of testosterone but this should be done under the supervision of a medical practitioner.

The good news is that the production of this key hormone can be increased naturally through good diets rich in proteins, reduced quantities of carbohydrates and fats with attention being paid to oils like omega-3 oils, vitamins and lots of water. A healthy and active lifestyle also promotes good hormone levels. Nutritional supplements can also boost testosterone levels, but all should be taken in moderation.
