There is also a growing understanding with regard to how Testosterone affects male masculinity and physiological health. There is a large push in the medical literature right now to scientifically evaluate how Testosterone Deficiency affects geriatric health and wellness. Australian Elderly Low-T Study A recent study was published by Australian researchers and presented at the 16th Annual International Congress of Endocrinology. With this study, researchers presented strong evidence that geriatric men with Low-T or other forms of sex-hormone deficiency experienced double the risk of experiencing a physiological decline over the course of a two year period when compared to men of the same age with comparatively high sex hormone levels. The lead researcher for this Elderly Low-T Study was Benjamin Hsu, a representative of the University of Sydney Australia.

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?

This article is about the three macronutrients that the body needs to survive: Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Fats. Each serves a specific need for your body, and each has a life-sustaining role to play. What Are Proteins? Proteins are organic compounds that are comprised of amino acids. To date, there are twenty known amino acids that the body utilizes, eleven of which are made naturally by the human body. This means that nine others must be consumed in your diet. These amino acids are known as Essential Amino Acids. Why Do We Need Protein? Every one of our cells uses protein, and protein is necessary for the diet to fix what's broken and to help build and rebuild tissues. For example, after you work out, your body uses protein from your food to patch up and reinforce your muscle tissue, which is what heals you and makes you stronger.

It can be hard to establish a diet or exercise plan. Ask anyone that's tried to convert from a sedentary lifestyle to a more thoughtful and active lifestyle. On the other hand, most people that engage in a life of activity seem to feed off of it, and the psychological and physiological changes caused by a good exercise routine are self-reinforcing. Increased energy levels ward off fatigue. Sleep comes more naturally and provides improved wakefulness. In general, there is an improved sense of well-being that is directly associated with exercise. It works the other way around too. People that don't get enough exercise are more likely to struggle to get off the couch or even out of bed.

Sermorelin acetate is a recombinant prescription medication designed for the treatment of idiopathic human growth hormone deficiency in children and adults. Sermorelin acetate is often prescribed instead of human growth hormone therapy to elevate and restore ordinary endogenous human growth hormone levels. Sermorelin acetate is a truncated version of a naturally produced hormone known as growth hormone-releasing hormone or GH-RH. How Does Sermorelin Acetate Work? Sermorelin works by correctly copying the effect of GH-RH on the pituitary gland. When the body recognizes a need for human growth hormone, the hypothalamus releases GH-RH to stimulate the pituitary somatotrophs which are responsible for secreting endogenous human growth hormone. GH-RH travels through a series of blood vessels in the brain known as the hypophyseal portal system to activate the somatotrophs. At this point, human growth hormone is released. What's the Difference between Sermorelin and GH-RH? Sermorelin is a functional analog of GH-RH, meaning that, though it is not molecularly identical, it stimulates the human body in the … Read more »

testosterone deficiency epidemic 300x200You may not realize it, but there may be a Hormone Deficiency Epidemic on the horizon. Due to several factors, many of which we do not fully understand, men are producing less Testosterone than ever clinically measured. Testosterone is the key to sexual function and is critical to fertility. Testosterone is also responsible for promoting strength and healthy body composition, along with numerous other functions that support vitality and quality of life. Over the last generation, men of the same age and circumstances are producing less Testosterone than they did even 20 years ago. A recent presentation at the American Urological Association showed that Testosterone Production in men dropped noticeably between the years of 1999 and 2016. This change even held firm when the data was corrected for BMI. Why Are Men Producing Less Testosterone? In addition to decreasing Testosterone Levels, men are also increasingly troubled by other conditions which contribute to declining Testosterone, such as Diabetes. There are also concerns regarding BPA, microplastics, and other environmental factors which may disrupt Hormone Balance. Suppressed Testosterone Production appears to be an issue across the board. Suppressed Testosterone Levels are not only more common among older men, but evidence suggests that younger … Read more »
