hormone replacement therapy for men and womenHRT for men has been proven in many medical studies to aid in cell regeneration and improve overall health, but it also helps with weight management, too. So, whether you’re dealing with weight issues, or you have a roller-coaster of mood swings every waking hour of the day, hormone replacement therapy can have a powerfully positive effect on your physiology. Not only does HRT curb the physical effects of aging, it also improves the emotional and cognitive effects, too.

Men and Testosterone

To create a male baby, testosterone is vital for the development of his reproductive tissues. At puberty, as his testicles are putting out very high levels of testosterone, his voice changes, his muscle mass increases, and he grows in height. And, at 17, his testosterone levels are at their peak. This will remain for another decade, until testosterone begins its inevitable descent. Around the age of 50, his testosterone level will be approximately half of what it was when he was 17.

Testosterone is critical for maintaining and even increasing the following:

  • Muscle mass
  • Bone mass
  • Sex drive and sexual performance
  • Sperm production
  • Red blood cell production
  • Cognitive abilities
  • Healthy sleep patterns
  • Keep a clear and sharp focused mind
  • Joint health – helps to relieve aches and pains
  • Overall sense of health and well being

Once testosterone levels begin to decline at around 30, some of the features and functions mentioned above can be greatly compromised. While this is a perfectly normal process of human life, sometimes its effects can be severely amplified or even come on prematurely. Men experiencing low testosterone levels can also experience symptoms typically associated with women, such as hot flashes and tender breasts. To remedy all of this, there’s testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT for short.

Male Steroid Use

It’s important not to confuse illegal, steroid usage by athletes and body builders with medically prescribed testosterone. Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the group of hormones called androgen’s, which are essentially male sex hormones. Steroids are a natural part of the body, but anabolic steroids are the synthetic version that some people use, with sometimes dangerous results.

How We Can Help with HRT

Vivacity Life Center is completely committed to putting your health and safety above all else. Our highly skilled affiliate physicians will work closely with you to develop a hormone replacement plan that is completely safe and that will ultimately help you look and feel similar to the way you did when you were younger.

Before seeking hormone replacement therapy, we encourage you to speak with your physician about the pros and cons and whether or not it’s right for you. It’s important to know that, even for those who do have a hormone imbalance, prescription testosterone and other hormone replacement therapies may not be right for some, including those who have prostate cancer. For those who cannot participate in hormone therapy, eating healthy and regularly exercising are the best ways to maintain an optimal balance of hormones.

If you’ve been given the go-ahead by a physician for hormone replacement therapy, there’s absolutely no reason why you should have to endure the negative effects of exaggerated or premature aging.Vivacity Life Center is passionate about being with you, every step of the way, to help you look and feel like you once did.
