The androgen Testosterone, called the "male sex hormone", is created primarily by the testes and to a lesser extent the adrenal glands. In the womb, testosterone is needed for the development of the male sexual organs and during puberty it is necessary for the growth of male genitalia, along with the deepening of the voice and growth of pubic hair. Testosterone is also important for the development of muscle mass and ensuring fat percentage is optimized in the less than 15% bodyfat range.

Testosterone Levels Decline with Age

Once you hit the age range of 25 to 30, your levels of testosterone will begin to decline, resulting in simple layperson's terms: Low Testosterone levels also called hypogonadism, low t or andropause. Hypogonadism requires low t physician evaluation and for you to have blood tests conducted and if deficiency exists, it is usually recommended to replace your deficient t levels. Since testosterone affects the bones, muscles, nervous system and prostate, you may notice a decline in your energy, health and sexual function as your body produces less testosterone. It explains why men become more feminine as they get older and why in the end stages of human life span for men, there tends to be loss of hair, and a kind of reverting back to prepubescent days mentally and physically. Ironic isn't it, but this is the power of testosterone.
