Why you must Test your Testosterone
Testosterone is a topic which deserves its own book because of the importance it plays in our daily lives. This hormone is central to various processes throughout the body. Derangement in testosterone can wreak havoc on you both physically and mentally. That is why I am writing this article.
Testosterone is one of the most misunderstood hormones in modern medicine. When uninformed people think of testosterone they envision road rage, domestic abuse, and man-boobs. That couldn’t be further from the truth. So, what does testosterone do?
In both men and women, this hormone plays a role in physical development. When puberty starts, testosterone promotes the growth and development of the male genitalia. It gives men the typical male appearance (body hair, facial hair, Adam’s apple, deep voice). It also stimulates sperm production within the testes. This is all useful information but is not applicable to your real life today.
