Testosterone

Testosterone is basically a male sex hormone secreted by the testes and produced by the adrenal gland in both males and females.  It comes in the group of compounds called anabolic steroids. Apart from maintaining male characteristics it also helps stimulate protein synthesis and accounts for muscle growth.

As we age, testosterone production slows down and the body has a decrease in the amount of testosterone that is available in the bloodstream. These reduced levels of testosterone can cause a variety of problems including hair loss, irritability, growth of unwanted body hair in women, a reduced libido, and the inability to maintain all of your muscle mass.

If you want to counteract some of these problems, there are several ways to increase your testosterone levels so that you can look and feel better. Using testosterone supplements for muscle growth and bodybuilding is quite common among bodybuilders and sports persons. It is said to be a potent hormone for muscle growth. That is why sports persons and the young gym brats wanting strong and prominent muscles prefer to use it. It is available in injection, gel, patch and pill forms.

The amount of testosterone supplementation one takes varies from person to person, because the dose is based on the individual’s weight.  But being a steroid, it should not be taken for more than 6 to 8 weeks, as it may hamper the body’s natural testosterone secretion and levels.
