Testosterone is an anabolic steroid that is secreted from the testes in males and the ovaries in females, with some secretion from the adrenal glands. It’s the primary sex hormone found in males.
With decreasing testosterone come a slew of health problems and concerns. Men tend to lose their sex drive and libido, feel sluggish and lose muscle mass. Men start to notice these changes after the age of 30, with the problems increasing as they get older and older. Adult men’s bodies produce, on average, 40 to 60 times more testosterone than adult women’s bodies. Women, however, are more sensitive to the hormone.
