Did you know women need Testosterone too? In fact, over the course of a woman’s lifetime, she will make much more Testosterone than she ever does Estrogen!
Several factors cause low Testosterone in women including age, stress, and childbirth. Low Testosterone can cause women to suffer from low libido, weight gain, flabby muscles, and fatigue, in addition to putting them at risk for heart disease and diabetes.
Testosterone is Beneficial For Your:
- Heart: Testosterone helps to decrease visceral (body) fat which lowers your risk of developing heart disease and associated illnesses like heart attacks and strokes. Additionally, testosterone therapy can increase your HDL levels. HDL is the “good,” protective cholesterol.
- Brain: Testosterone increases concentration and mood and helps prevent the debilitating diseases Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
- Bones: Testosterone prevents bone loss and therefore can reduce the risk of osteoporosis which is a leading cause of bone fractures.
- Quality of Life: Testosterone is like a dose of warm sunshine. It improves your overall sense of well-being by helping you rest deeper, have more energy and motivation throughout your day, decrease depression and anxiety, and increase your libido which is a key piece of any intimate relationship.
