Testosterone is the male hormone that is responsible for the development of sexual characteristics, sense of well-being, and sexual function. It helps protect against bone loss, heart disease, and depression while increasing the ratio of lean muscle mass to body fat. Correct testosterone levels are essential for the overall health and quality-of-life of men. When men reach 30 years old, testosterone levels typically begin to drop about 1% per year. There are between 4-5 million American males with hypogonadism (low testosterone). Only 5-10% of them receive testosterone therapy.
