4 Benefits of Testosterone Therapy

As men age, they can experience a decrease in testosterone that leads to insomnia, mood swings, erectile dysfunction, and decreased sex drive. 

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is often the treatment for women going through menopause, but men also benefit from HRT — more specifically, testosterone replacement (TRT) therapy.

Gordon Hart, PA-C, uses effective treatments to resolve your uncomfortable hormone imbalance issues, including sexual dysfunction and mood swings. He leads our caring team of specialists at Balance Hormone Center and will create a customized plan tailored to your hormonal requirements.

Benefits of testosterone replacement therapy

There are many benefits of having properly balanced hormones. Testosterone plays an essential role in your body, especially for muscle mass, sex drive, memory, and concentration. That’s why it’s so important to keep your hormones balanced. 

Benefits of TRT include significant health advantages like a reduced risk of heart attack and diabetes. Proper levels of testosterone also ensure a healthy heart and stronger bones. Here are four other vital benefits of TRT.

Increased libido

Men and women both experience a decreased sex drive as they age. If you’ve noticed a lack of desire as you become older, you should consider testosterone therapy. 

Men with higher levels of testosterone have higher sex drives and experience deeper sexual desire. The older you get, the more likely you’ll notice a diminished libido. Studies show that testosterone therapy not only benefits your sexual health but also increases performance.

Improve your math skills

Although it may sound silly to connect your ability to problem-solve to your testosterone levels, you might be surprised to learn that there is a strong connection between this hormone and critical thinking. 

Men with higher testosterone levels have a lower incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, and they’re faster thinkers. If you’re between the ages of 34 and 70, TRT can even improve your spatial memory.

Boost your mood

It’s normal for everyone to go through periods of ups and downs throughout life. But if you’ve noticed more downs than ups, you may need to have your hormones checked. 

Lower testosterone levels are linked to lower quality of life and are associated with depression, irritability, and fatigue. Not only can TRT clear your mind of clutter, but it also elevates your mood and improves your overall sense of well-being.

Fitness and weight control

Healthy levels of testosterone help you keep lean muscle mass and increase your energy. Additionally, testosterone is in charge of creating muscle mass and strength, so TRT also makes you feel stronger. 

If you feel weaker as you’ve matured, you might have low testosterone levels. Our experts at Hormone Balance Center can help.
