Our hormones naturally fluctuate over time and throughout various stages of life but when a hormonal imbalance occurs, there are numerous ways it can affect our bodily functions, often leading to an increase of stress and strain in our daily routines. Hormones can become out of balance mainly due to age, but poor diet or lack of exercise can also contribute. When it occurs, metabolism, heart rate, sleep, mood, and sexual function can be directly effected. So it's vital to measure current testosterone levels as studies have shown that low levels may increase risk of certain health conditions.
Hormones are essential for men's health and well-being. Testosterone is the most important androgen (male sex hormones) that regulates reproductive and sexual function from teen years through middle age. For men, when hormonal imbalance is at play, symptoms can range from weight gain, irritability, and increased appetite. When testosterone levels are low, you may also experience adverse sleep patterns and sexual health. Combined with low energy and difficulty focusing, getting hormones back on track to normal levels can help you to achieve physical and mental health improvements for optimal well-being.
