Five Benefits of Testosterone That You Need to Know

Testosterone. It's the magic hormone that turns boys into men. It is an essential hormone that all men need to produce to be masculine.

High levels of testosterone are associated with masculine features such as body hair, a hoarse voice, and muscles.

But that's far from all that it does. Testosterone delivers some significant health benefits as well.

If you want to know why testosterone is healthy for you, consider this: young men are flooded with testosterone.

Regrettably, men begin to lose their testosterone supply when they reach the age of 30, and this continues at approximately 10% per decade.

Is it merely a coincidence that older men have far more health problems than younger ones?

Very doubtful. Here are some of the best-known health benefits that men derive from this all-powerful hormone:

  • Boosts red blood cell count. A boost of testosterone helps increase your red blood cell count (RBC). That is one of the reasons why men have higher levels of RBC and hemoglobin than women. If you are losing a ton of blood, it can be a lifesaver.
  • Adds muscle mass. Check out competitive bodybuilders, or any muscular man. Do you think they are suffering from low levels of testosterone? Muscle mass is a result of more testosterone. When you have healthy levels of testosterone, you have more lean muscle less fat.
  • Strengthens bones. One of the best health benefits of testosterone is that it keeps your bones strong and healthy. Testosterone is the hormone that protects your bones from wearing away. That is one of the reasons why osteoporosis is rare among men.
  • Stabilizes mood swings. Unlike the female hormones that can make some women occasionally moody and low, testosterone is responsible for uplifting your mood.
  • Heart health and protection from a heart attack. The healing effects of testosterone therapy on the heart are well-known. Also, testosterone can protect against a heart attack. Low levels of testosterone are associated with many heart disorders. Testosterone helps the cardiac muscles to pump blood faster, which protects the heart against damage. That is why testosterone is healthy for every man.

Incredibly, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is on the verge of limiting the use of testosterone by restricting the right of physicians to prescribe it “off-label.”

The agency has stated that they are concerned about the risks of men suffering a heart attack and stroke as a result of using testosterone replacement therapy drugs.

The FDA began its investigation into the alleged link between testosterone heart attack and stroke risks in February 2014.

This was based on a study suggesting that men age 65 years and older have a two-fold increased risk of suffering a heart attack during the first 90 days of starting testosterone replacement therapy.

Men younger than 65 with a history of heart disease had as much as a three-fold increased heart attack risk during that same period according to the study.

The FDA announced a testosterone label change in June 2014, which would require drug manufacturers to warn of increased risks of blood clots including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).

No mention of testosterone heart attack and stroke risks were made.

Drugs used to treat low testosterone were approved to treat acute medical conditions, but have become more widely used to treat symptoms of aging such as low energy and low libido.

More than 2.3 million American men are taking testosterone drugs, but only a small minority of these men are taking the drug to treat severe medical conditions, according to the FDA panel.

Again, according to the FDA panel, limiting the criteria for testosterone replacement therapy use could help prevent the number of heart attacks and strokes caused by testosterone that is unnecessarily suffered by patients.

Hopefully, the panel will hear all sides of the issue before making their recommendations.

Many medical professionals have publicly stated that the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy far outweigh the risks.

And if the hormone is administered under the guidance of a physician, the risk is even further lowered.
