Testosterone and Aggression: How T-Levels Impact Human Response to External, Social Threats


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 21st, 2018

Testosterone, as most people know, is the primary male sex hormone, and is associated with many characteristics which are classically considered to be masculine, among these is a predilection toward aggression. A recent study, led by Dr. Justin Carré of Nipissing University and published in the journal Biological Psychology, provides neurological evidence of the mechanism by which Testosterone exerts its influence upon aggression. Other, earlier research discovered that Testosterone administration affects neurological function, but prior studies were performed on female patients. In those studies, women were provided a one-time dose of Testosterone to monitor the way that it impacted neurological expression. The goal of Carré's study was to investigate how such Testosterone administration would affect male neurological expression, in comparison to its effects upon the female brain. In particular, Carré wanted to examine how the male brain responds to threats when Testosterone Levels are artificially enhanced in healthy males. Testosterone, Threat Perception, and the Human Brain In particular, the researchers placed special emphasis on parts of the brain the are associated with aggression and threat response, such as the periaqueductal gray, the hypothalamus, and the amygdala. This study involved sixteen patients, all male, and with no signs of illness. They … Read more »

Cardiovascular Issues Contribute Heavily to Loss of Memory and Cognitive Decline


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 21st, 2018

Cardiovascular Issues Contribute Heavily to Loss of Memory and Cognitive Decline The brain is the most physiologically demanding organ in the human body, and requires a constant flow of oxygen-rich blood to maintain its optimal function. If the heart and cardiovascular systems are unable to meet the demands of the brain, then the brain will have to adjust its function to compensate. Two of the most common issues related to aging are a decline in cognitive function and diminished cardiovascular health. The more research that is conducted with regard to these two issues, the more clear that it becomes that heart health is intricately linked to the health of the mind. Heart Problems Increase the Risk of Cognitive Impairment Individuals that suffer from poor heart health due to atherosclerosis, heart failure, hypertension, or other conditions which impact circulation are more likely to experience heightened cognitive decline in comparison to their peers with healthy hearts or cardiovascular systems in moderate health. A new study released in the Journal of the American Medical Association made connection quite clearly. In this study, medical researchers discovered that individuals with poor cardiovascular health were at significantly greater risk of cognitive decline, including diminished verbal ability, … Read more »

LPCN 1021 Oral Testosterone Therapy Currently in Stage Three FDA Clinical Trial


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 21st, 2018

As of today, there is no oral Testosterone Product available on the market which is FDA-Approved and effective for relief from Testosterone Deficiency. There are a number of reasons for this. Oral Testosterone products available in the past have been bad for the liver, because of the way that the digestive system metabolizes Testosterone, for example. Most products that purport to provide Testosterone-Boosting power are over the counter supplements which contain amino acids which have been shown to increase Testosterone Levels, but again, these are largely ineffective as compared to Prescription Testosterone Products, as well as more dangerous, because these Testosterone Releasers also negatively impact liver function. Researchers have long been trying to create an effective Oral Testosterone Therapy medication, because the benefits of the oral route outweigh those of any other form of Testosterone Administration, if the medication can deliver the Testosterone safely and efficiently. Downside of Common Testosterone Therapy Options Testosterone Injections were the original form of Low-T therapy available, but most men would prefer to avoid using needles in lieu of other options. Testosterone Creams and Gels provide Low-T Treatment effectively, but are somewhat messy, and can transfer Testosterone to others via physical contact with the area … Read more »

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 20th, 2018

Cholesterol blood test 300x200Cholesterol and Testosterone Cholesterol is one of the building blocks of human life and a precursor to testosterone, but it is also one of the most dangerous health factors when cholesterol Levels fall out of balance, especially with regard to LDL Cholesterol, VLDL Cholesterol, and Triglycerides.

Clomiphene Citrate for Low-T


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 20th, 2018

Clomiphene Citrate is an alternative to Testosterone Replacement Therapy for men looking for a way to safely restore their Testosterone Levels and improve their health, vitality, and sexual potency. It has helped many men across the country restore both their fertility and their erectile function, as well as improve their overall health and vitality. Although Clomiphene Citrate is available as a generic medication, it can also be found under the brand names Serophene and Clomid. Clomiphene Citrate was originally designed to be a fertility drug for women, but ongoing research has shown that the hormone has a tremendous impact upon Testosterone Levels in men that are suffering from Andropause or any other form of Secondary Testosterone Deficiency. How Does Clomiphene Citrate Work? To understand how Clomiphene Citrate works, it's important to understand the underlying mechanisms which promote healthy Testosterone production in male patients. Testosterone Production is the result of a hormone cascade which starts at the Hypothalamus, which functions as the brain's control center. When the Hypothalamus recognizes that the body needs Testosterone, it sends a hormone to the pituitary gland known as Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone. This hormone activates the production of two hormones both related to the healthy function of … Read more »

Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 19th, 2018

alcohol 428392_640 300x199Pretty much everyone understands these days that Testosterone is a major aspect of weightlifting and bodybuilding, and the reason why men can build muscles more quickly and build more muscle than women. For that reason, it should come to little surprise that the use of alcohol, most notably, overindulgence and abuse of alcohol, can inhibit the body's ability to build and preserve muscle mass, reducing your ability and chances to maintain your ideal male physique. How Does Alcohol Interfere with Healthy Muscles? For men looking to maintain athletic performance or maintain a fit figure, alcohol can cause a lot of problems when drank to excess. Three major ways that alcohol disrupts the normal function of the body with regard to bodybuilding and athletic performance are rebuilding, recovery, and performance. Though the buzz dissipates in a matter of hours, the physiological hangover of alcohol can persist for a couple of days. In fact, athletes are suggested not to drink heavily in the 2 days before they are set to perform, because the body can take that long to fully process the alcohol out of the body. The following are some ways that alcohol consumption can prevent athletes from performing at their … Read more »

Testosterone Deficiency Strongly Linked to Heart Attack Risk in New Study


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 19th, 2018

There has been a lot of debate over the last decade regarding the effects of both Low-T and Testosterone Deficiency on the heart. Depending on the study and the manner in which the study was conducted, the results can come out quite differently. A study published in Heart Rhythm, a peer-reviewed medical journal regarding cardiovascular health, provides strong evidence that a patient's Estradiol and Testosterone Levels are powerful indicators for sudden cardiac arrest, a lethal condition with a 95% mortality rate. What researchers found was that men that experienced cardiac arrest had average Testosterone Levels which were significantly lower than normal. It was also discovered that patients with elevated Estradiol Levels were more likely to experience cardiac arrest regardless of gender. What Is Cardiac Arrest? Cardiac Arrest is a condition in which the heart loses the ability to contract normally, which completely restricts blood flow. This prevents the body from circulating oxygen through the blood stream which quickly leads to death if not treated. Sudden Cardiac Arrest refers to Cardiac Arrest which occurs without warning. Because of the severity of the condition, under most circumstances, there is no way to provide effective treatment in time to save the patient, nor … Read more »

Ten Ways to Enhance Your Metabolism


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on August 18th, 2018

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 … Read more »
