Testosterone therapy is an excellent treatment for low testosterone levels. It can improve libido and reduce the effects of cardiovascular disease. It can also improve memory, concentration, and reasoning. In addition, this therapy can help reduce stubborn “belly fat” and improve cardiovascular health.
The testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) improves libido and sexual desire in men. This effect was seen in a sub-trial of the Testosterone Trials that involved 470 men aged 65 years or older. Researchers analyzed data collected on the Derogatis Interview, a series of 25 items that evaluate sexual desire and the level of sex drive. This resulted in an effect size of 0.44 (with a 95% confidence interval of 0.32-0.56).
Despite the fact that the testosterone hormone has been shown to improve libido, the exact mechanism that causes this effect is still unclear. There are many factors that influence a man’s libido, including psychological factors. For instance, the amount of time a man sleeps and the amount of stress he experiences will play a role in his libido.
Reduces cardiovascular dysfunction
In men, testosterone is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. However, there is some debate over whether testosterone is protective against cardiovascular disease. This is partly due to a lack of consensus about what causes CVD. One possible explanation is that testosterone has anti-inflammatory properties. Specifically, it inhibits the production of inflammatory molecules, including IL-6.
The effects of testosterone on the cardiovascular system are not fully understood, but it is thought that it shortens QT intervals, enhances glycemic control, and has anti-obesity properties. Nonetheless, millions of men around the world use testosterone replacement therapy or androgen deprivation therapy. This review summarizes recent clinical and preclinical studies and discusses future research needs.
Improves memory, concentration, and reasoning
Testosterone is a male hormone that is responsible for muscle mass and is vital for improving performance and stamina. However, it also plays an important role in brain development, executive function, and memory. Low levels of testosterone result in a decreased ability to perform certain tasks and may contribute to the development of cognitive disorders. Testosterone replacement therapy can help improve cognitive functions in men.
There is some evidence to suggest that testosterone may improve memory, concentration, and reasoning in men with hypogonadism. Interestingly, a recent study of men with hypogonadism and a low testosterone level showed that testosterone treatment reduced the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. It also improved the visuospatial abilities of the men who underwent testosterone therapy.
Reduces stubborn “belly fat”
Belly fat is one of the most difficult areas of the body to lose. The abdomen tends to hold on to fat even when losing weight, which increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Luckily, there are ways to reduce this stubborn fat. In addition to reducing your overall calorie intake, you can also burn belly fat by adding a workout routine to your daily routine.
First, you must take note of what triggers belly fat. It can be caused by poor food choices, alcohol, lack of exercise, and hormonal changes. Also, you should know that the midsection is made up of subcutaneous fat, which is stored under the skin.
Improves quality of life
In one study, testosterone replacement therapy improved muscle strength and reduced depression. However, the results were mixed and lacked statistical significance. Additionally, the results did not show any significant differences in the incidence of cardiovascular events, including fasting blood glucose and HbA1c. The findings were also limited by the small number of participants and the methods used.
Another study found that testosterone replacement therapy did not significantly improve sexual symptoms, sexual function, or overall quality of life. It was not associated with improvements in energy levels or changes in lower urinary symptoms. The study did not assess testosterone level, but the presence of hypogonadism was a pre-requisite for participation.
