Testosterone hormone is the male sex hormone and is primarily secreted in the testes. It is responsible for the growth and development in males. Testosterone hormone can increase the sex drive in men. It is the primary hormone in men and is involved in the building up of bone and muscle mass. Low testosterone levels in men can decreases sexual desire and sexual performance, decreased energy, and cause increase in body fat as well as other problems.
Testosterone production is affected by a number of external factors, such as illness, medications, psychological state, obesity, exercise, and lifestyle (smoking and excessive alcohol intake). Factors such as reduced activity, nutritional deficiency, diabetes, and growth hormone deficiency can also contribute to lower levels.
The average male in his late 40’s has only 33% to 50% of the level testosterone he had in his twenties.
