Limiting the Influence of Estrogen on Male Hormone Balance Through Diet

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 5th, 2017

As men get older, Testosterone becomes a precious resource. After around age 30, Testosterone Levels start to fall, albeit very slowly. This decline eventually culminates in symptoms associated with Low-T, including loss of strength, fatigue, weight gain, depression, sexual dysfunction, and more. One of the ways to preserve Testosterone Levels naturally is by controlling the influence of Estrogen on male physiology.

Testosterone Therapy Helps Men with Low-T Ward Off Prostate Cancer

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 3rd, 2017

As Bio-Identical Testosterone Treatments become more widely offered by Hormone Specialists across the United States, a great debate has been waging over the long-term safety of Testosterone Replacement Therapy. It is undeniable that Testosterone Creams, Patches, and Injections provide some real benefits that significantly improve the quality of life of patients. For example, Low-T Therapy enhances energy levels, body composition, libido, and psychological wellness in patients suffering from Hypogonadism. Risks of Testosterone Therapy On the other hand, there has always been the fear that Testosterone Therapy can have long-term consequences, especially in the areas of heart health and prostate health. This concern and the widespread use of Recombinant Testosterone Therapy has led to a veritable explosion of Testosterone Research since the turn of the century. Testosterone and Cardiovascular Health Prior research showed that Testosterone Treatments could negatively impact heart health, increasing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and atherosclerosis. Fortunately, as the body of research has developed and HRT Therapy Techniques have advanced, it appears that this risk is vastly overstated when Testosterone is prescribed and used as directed. The bulk of risk comes from abuse of Testosterone Therapy and poor diagnostic practices. More studies must be conducted, but at

The Importance of Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) for Healthy Testosterone Levels

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 3rd, 2017

Hormone Balance is the key to maintaining and facilitating optimal wellness. The way that our hormones work is highly complex. When we discuss Testosterone, Estrogen, or Human Growth Hormone Production, this is actually a short-hand for an entire branch of highly-interconnected processes which lead to the production of a vital hormone. Hormone Replacement Therapy tends to revolve around the replacement of the key hormone which provides the broadest range of benefits. For example, HGH and Testosterone are both further processed into metabolites which provide the full range of benefits associated with the hormones. The goal of this article is to explain the role of Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) in the function and utilization of Testosterone. How Does the Body Make Testosterone? Sex Hormone Production begins in the hypothalamus—the control center of the brain. The Hypothalamus receives signals from the body to produce Testosterone or Estrogen, and sex hormone precursors are released. Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone is issued by the Hypothalamus, where it then travels to the Pituitary. The Pituitary Gland responds to this stimulation by releasing Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, which then travel to the sex organs, promoting normal function in both men and women. For men, Testosterone Production is triggered

Oral Testosterone Pill Could Make Lipocine’s share price SKYROCKET

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 2nd, 2017

Lipocine Inc. (LPCN) may have a huge hit on its hands with the first swallow-able oral testosterone treatment. Oral testosterone could revolutionize the testosterone market because users usually have to inject themselves or use a gel that absorbs through their skin. The problem with these two delivery methods is that they are inconvenient and may transfer to women and children. These issues may deter potential users. The investment firm Canaccord Genuity sees a significant upside here. The company’s Corey Davis and Lidia Liu initiated coverage of Lipocine with a Buy rating and assigned it a $15.00 price target. If the firm is correct in its assessment, then Lipocine shares could rise more than 80% if the outcome expectations live up the scenario outlined in this analyst call. The way the firm arrived at the target price of $15.00 was a discounted price-to-earnings (P/E) valuation, applying a multiple of 20 to the 2021 earnings per share target $2.06, and then cut by 20% for five and a half years. The potential risks to this analysis include failure to gain FDA approval, to find a partner or to sell the company. Canaccord Genuity’s analyst Corey Davis said: “Lipocine is on the verge

Amygdala and it’s Relationship to Testosterone and Fear

Written by Dr. White, Published on December 1st, 2017

The amygdala is the center of emotional activity in the brain, but recent studies have shown that it’s powered by motivation rather than the emotions themselves. This conclusion came from research into the hormone testosterone. Testosterone ramps up amygdala activity when we approach a socially dangerous situation and lessens the activity when these situations are avoided. It was a known fact that the amygdala reaction to images of angry faces was more intense in someone who had received testosterone. This new study shows that this only happens when people approach angry faces and not when they avoid them. Testosterone or placebo In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 54 young healthy women were given 0.5 mg of testosterone (or a placebo) four hours before a brain scan. This amount is a far lower dose than used for a sex change treatment, or as a supplement for athletes, but it is enough to have a measurable effect on brain activity. Happy or angry While in the MRI-scanner, the participants were shown photos of happy and angry faces and were asked to give a sign of rejection (avoiding) or approach (moving towards). People usually have less of a problem approaching someone who looks friendly

Testosterone DOES NOT Cause Atherosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries) in Older Men

Written by Dr. White, Published on November 25th, 2017

Unless you have been imitating Rip Van Winkle for several years, you are aware that Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has exploded in the last decade. However, there have been very few studies that have examined the long-term effects of taking testosterone on cardiovascular health and other vital functions concerning the health effects on men receiving the treatment. But that has changed. Recently, investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) report the results of the Testosterone’s Effects on Atherosclerosis Progression in Aging Men (TEAAM) trial in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The three-year study finds that testosterone administration had no effect on the progression of hardening of the arteries in older men with low to low-normal testosterone levels and did not significantly improve sexual function or health-related quality of life. Shehzad Basaria, M.B.B.S., MD, from Harvard Medical School in Boston, and colleagues studied the effect of testosterone administration on atherosclerosis progression in older men. Three hundred eight men aged 60 years or older (patients had a mean age of 67.6 years), with low or low-normal testosterone levels, volunteered and were treated with up to 7.5 g of 1 percent testosterone (156 men) or placebo gel packets (152 men)

Testosterone Promotes Bone Health and Can Help Treat Osteoporosis

Written by Dr. White, Published on November 20th, 2017

Testosterone Replacement Therapy provides a wide variety of benefits to aging men suffering from the effects of Andropause. Many of these benefits are well-known, especially those related to body composition, mood, and sexual appetite. There are many obscure benefits to Low-T Treatment, one of which is improved Bone Mineral Density. Dr. Robert Ashley has worked with patients suffering from Low-T and Osteoporosis for years. He explains that research has shown that Bio-Identical Testosterone Therapy for Andropause not only improves sexual desire and libido while increasing energy and helping patients lose weight, but also has positive effects on bone health. Should Men Worry About Osteoporosis? It’s widely known that women are at an elevated risk of Osteoporosis compared to men. This is because Testosterone has anabolic effects on the skeletal structure. Testosterone promotes bone recycling, which helps preserve bone mineral density. Specifically, Testosterone encourages Osteoblast activity, which are cells which are designed to fortify bone with recycled minerals. Just because women are at elevated risk for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis doesn’t mean that men are safe, however. Testosterone Deficiency causes an imbalance in the pattern of bone recycling, favoring Osteoclast activity. Osteoclasts are cells designed to break down bone tissue for recycling.

The Effects of Testosterone Therapy on Male Patients – Who Should Use Testosterone?

Written by Dr. White, Published on November 20th, 2017

For men that suffer from Andropause and Low-T, Bio-Identical Testosterone can be an absolute game-changer. Testosterone Deficiency leads to a whole range of symptoms which impair male wellness and deplete vitality, such as sexual dysfunction, increased body fat, reduced exercise capacity, depression, and more. That doesn’t mean that Testosterone Treatments are for everyone, however. When used when not necessary, Testosterone Patches, Creams, and Injections come with some major risks. What Is Andropause and How Does It Impact Male Health and Virility? Similar to women, men also experience hormonal changes as a result of aging. Unlike women, which experience Menopause suddenly and rather abruptly, Andropause (the term for male menopause, also nicknamed Manopause) occurs slowly and gradually. The testes and adrenal glands produce high levels of Testosterone throughout adolescence and early adulthood, and Testosterone Levels fall into a state of depletion around the age of thirty. The decline is very slow, only around 1-2% annually, but over the course of years and decades, Testosterone Levels can drop to a level which is no longer conducive to health and masculinity. What Are the Benefits of Testosterone Therapy for Men with Low-T? For men with impaired Testosterone Production, Prescription Testosterone Therapy for Hypogonadism
