Hormones: The Key to Vitality, Sex Drive, and Aging
Hormones play a powerful role in the body’s regulatory system. Proper hormonal balance is essential to maintain optimal health and play a crucial role in how one feels. Testosterone, for example, enhances sex drive, strengthens bone and muscle tissue, and reduces fat production. In addition, it is a natural energy booster that protects against the onset of depression and heart disease. Other male hormonal deficiencies or excesses affect sleep, metabolism, and the ability to fight disease. Throughout life, and particularly in ones middle age, information about the body’s hormone production provides keen insights to help maintain a health and vigorous life.
