Testosterone is responsible for increased muscle mass. Leaner body mass helps control weight and increases energy. Treatment can decrease fat mass and increase muscle size and strength for men with low testosterone.
Testosterone levels naturally rise in response to sexual arousal and activity. Men with higher levels of testosterone usually have more significant sexual activity.
Men on testosterone therapy improved mood and well-being and reduced fatigue and irritability.
A healthy heart pumps blood to the rest of the body, providing muscles and organs with the oxygen needed for peak performance. Testosterone helps red blood cell production through the bone marrow. Low testosterone levels are linked to a variety of cardiovascular risks.
Testosterone plays a huge role in bone mineral density. Bone density decreases as men age and testosterone levels drop. This raises the risk of weak bones and osteoporosis. Strong bones help support your muscles and internal organs, which can boost athletic performance.
