The Male Hormone Plus is a hormonal test which provides a focused overview of hormonal balance in men. Using a simple saliva sample, the Male Hormone Plus evaluates dynamics of sex steroid hormones that can profoundly affect a man’s health throughout his lifetime.
Hormones are the key to vitality, sex drive and ageing. They play a powerful role in the body’s regulatory system. Proper hormonal balance is essential to maintaining optimal health and it plays a crucial role in how one feels. Testosterone, for example, enhances sex drive, strengthens bone and muscle tissue and reduces fat production. It is also 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 middle age, information about the body’s hormone production provides vital insights to maintaining a healthy and vigorous life.
