Virtually all the biochemical reactions that happen every second throughout the entire body occur inside cells. This is where enzymes, proteins, neurotransmitters, and hormones are made. Inside the cell (intracellular) is where nutrients are utilized and energy is produced. If a cell does not function, the metabolic … Read more »

Behavior and Lifestyle Linked to the Effect of Declining Testosterone, Not Necessarily Natural Aging


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on June 26th, 2020

endocrine societyIt is common to believe that as men get older, their production of the "male hormone", testosterone, becomes less and less. That this is part of healthy aging, and the only way to keep up their hormone levels is to take supplementation. A new study has found out that this is not necessarily the case. Aging itself does not result in lower testosterone levels. The drop is caused by changes in a man's behavior and health. The finding is controversial but interesting. The study was supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia and presented at the Endocrine Society's 94th Annual Meeting in Houston. The authors analyzed testosterone levels in more than 1,500 men. The measurements were taken five years apart, and all were sampled at the same time using the same method. The men used in the study ranged from 35 to 80 years old. Men who were taking medications or had conditions which affected their hormones were excluded from the study. Over the five years, testosterone levels did not decline significantly; only one percent per year. However, after analyzing subgroups of men, specific patterns began to emerge. For example, men who became obese or were … Read more »

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in the middle of what's called a monograph, which means they're investigating the safety of the chemicals. And the companies that make antibacterial soaps will have to prove that the benefits of their products outweigh the health risks. "Both chemicals affect testosterone production in men, as well as thyroid functions and endocrine systems as well," explains Dr. Todd Howell, the Medical Director for The Aesthetic Medicine and Anti-Aging Clinics of Louisiana.

masculinity hormone non soy milk drinker 199x300Though we ultimately associate Testosterone with libido, masculinity, and sexuality, Testosterone plays an influential role in maintaining and optimizing health. The influence of Testosterone has a significant effect on the incidence and prevalence of a variety of diseases and conditions. For example, men are less prone to osteoporosis than women, because the influence of Testosterone directly contributes to stronger and healthier bones. It also appears that Testosterone has a strong influence on the prevalence of auto-immune disorders. Women only produce about 1/8th of the Testosterone of their male counterparts, and medical research shows that this leaves women significantly more at risk for conditions related to immune health, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, celiac disease, and multiple sclerosis. Depending on the situation, women experience auto-immune issues at 3-9 times the rate of men.
