FAQ

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair, In addition, testosterone is essential for health and well-being, and for the prevention of osteoporosis. Insufficient levels of testosterone in men may lead to abnormalities including frailty and bone loss.

Testosterone is also used as a medication to treat male hypogonadism.. Since testosterone levels gradually decrease as men age, synthetic testosterone is sometimes prescribed to older men to counteract this deficiency.

Testosterone levels between 350 ng/dL and 1,100 ng/dL are referred to as normal in healthy men. Normal physiology allows the brain and the testes to work together to keep testosterone in this range. The brain produces “signal” hormones that are responsible for stimulating testosterone production. These “signals” are periodically released, which in turn stimulates testosterone production.
When levels of testosterone are in an acceptable range, the production of the "signal” hormones is slowed, which in turn allows the testosterone levels to decrease. " Optimal ranges are 700-1100 for Total Testosterone. But Free Testosterone is the active form of Testosterone and these levels must be optimized for best results. "
