The age-related decline of naturally produced hormones in men — andropause — is sometimes referred to as “male menopause.” During this stage of life it’s common for men to experience a gradual decline in testosterone levels, which can lead to a variety of undesirable symptoms. Low testosterone (or low T) isn’t something men should simply learn to live with.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be useful in addressing symptoms associated with low testosterone levels, such as:

  • Fatigue/low energy levels
  • Low libido
  • Irritability/depression/mood swings
  • Memory issues
  • Sleep disturbances/insomnia
  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Weight gain
  • Prostate problems
  • Erectile dysfunction

As HRT addresses these symptoms beneath the surface at their root cause, men may  experience better quality of life as a result.

Why choose compounded testosterone for HRT?

Even the slightest variation in the molecules of synthetically produced testosterone may affect the way the hormone interacts with your body’s systems. However, compounded testosterone derived from plant sources, is designed to be the most familiar form of testosterone for your body. As a result, you can slowly metabolize it into pure testosteronethat is identical to your own natural hormone[1] s for optimal benefits.

A custom-compounded HRT plan for men that includes testosterone may help improve many of the symptoms associated with andropause, the natural aging process, and other health conditions. Over time, with compounded and bioidentical testosterone, you may experience:

  • Renewed sex drive
  • Higher energy levels
  • Less fatigue/improved sleep
  • Stabilized mood
  • Improved memory and focus
  • Lower risk of heart disease

Hormone replacement therapy may also help address symptoms associated with a variety of chronic conditions and health concerns that commonly occur as part of the natural aging process.
