Testosterone’s Effects Upon the Human Body

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 1st, 2018

Testosterone is the quintessential hormone which represents masculinity. It is the very reason why embryos become boys and boys become men, as the prenatal male starts to secrete his own Testosterone in the womb starting around 50 days after conception. Testosterone levels drop significantly after differentiation completes in the womb, and stays low until puberty, when both Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone Levels start to increase. Testosterone Production continues to increase throughout adolescence, and reaches its apex around 17-19 years of age. After this period, Testosterone levels hit a plateau, and remain high for the next 10-15 years. Starting at around the age of thirty, Testosterone Production falls from this plateau, dropping a bit each year, around an average of 1.5% annually. The majority of men produce more than their fair share of Testosterone, especially men under the age of forty, but the older that men get, the more likely that they are to experience abnormally low levels of Testosterone, a condition known as Testosterone Deficiency. Men that don’t produce enough Testosterone start to go into a physiological decline that effects them physically, psychologically, and sexually. They start to gain weight and lose muscle mass. They become less interested in

Exercise Optimizes Testosterone Production

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 1st, 2018

As a man, it’s important to recognize that your body goes through certain changes as you grow older. The changes that a man goes through are not entirely unlike those which a woman go through, in a way. Male health is largely associated with Testosterone Levels, and as men get closer to middle age, their Testosterone Production starts to drop, first slowly, then at a faster rate. Eventually men start to feel these changes in their mind and see the changes in their body. When Testosterone Decline starts to become symptomatic, this is a condition known as Andropause, but also known as Low-T or Hypogonadism. Symptoms of Low-T and Testosterone Deficiency Testosterone Deficiency has a wide variety of symptoms associated with it, but there are five symptoms that you really need to look out for: Depression and Anxiety Fatigue and Exhaustion Declining Libido and Sexual Function Loss of Muscle Strength and Tone Buildup of Unwanted Body Fat Low-T Diagnosis Requires Lab Testing Of course, many of these symptoms share similarities with other disorders. These can also simply be the symptoms of a sedentary man just getting himself in a rut. If you feel that you are experiencing the symptoms above,

Natural, Simple Ways to Improve Your Sleeping Habits

Written by Dr. White, Published on May 11th, 2018

One of the most common causes of Testosterone Deficiency in men that have not yet experienced Andropause is poor sleeping habits. In order for your body to produce the Testosterone that it needs to amplify your day-to-day health, you need 7-9 hours of restful sleep per night, but too many men don’t get enough. Across the United States, there are nine million men and women that take prescription medications to help them sleep. Healthy sleep is also necessary for your body to adequately produce Human Growth Hormone, which is produced primarily during sleep and helps to promote cellular metabolism and healing processes. Unfortunately, often, these sleeping pills produce side-effects in many patients, and for many, the products are simply not effective. Because of the potential risks associated with many sleep aids, including the potential risk for abuse, many health professionals feel that these medications should only be used short-term, in order to help restore healthier sleeping habits. Of course, even if you aren’t interested in using a prescription treatment, you should still see a medical professional if you are experiencing a major sleep disorder, such as insomnia. There are a lot of ways to effectively treat such conditions without turning

Ten Ways to Enhance Your Metabolism

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 22nd, 2015

One of the keys to losing weight is to take steps to rev up your metabolism. There are a number of ways to achieve this, and burn calories faster and more efficiently. Allow us to provide some tips! Build Muscle to Increase Metabolism One of the best ways to increase your metabolism is to increase your muscle mass. Basal Metabolic Rate refers to how many calories that your body ambiently burns while you are at rest. Muscle burns more calories per hour than any other form of tissue, and the more muscle mass that you have, the higher that your basic metabolism will be. Fat is a storage mechanism, and does not burn as many calories. Each pound of body fat you have will burn two calories on its own each day. Muscle, on the other hand, will burn six calories daily. On top of this, when you work out your muscles, they burn even more calories, and after a good anaerobic workout, all activated muscles will burn calories more quickly. High Intensity Cardio for Increased Metabolism Aerobic activity is also a fantastic way to increase your metabolism. High-Intensity Interval Training is a form of exercise in which you engage
