We tend to spend a lot of time discussing how women’s hormones change and certain hormones decline as we they age but it is important to remember that men experience these changes as well. Men experience a decline in hormones such as testosterone as they age (typically beginning around age 30) and that can bring on a lot of unwanted symptoms. Those symptoms include things like weight gain, hair loss, depression, insomnia, memory loss, fatigue, mood disorders, sexual dysfunction, diabetes, loss of endurance, loss of muscle, heart disease, increase in body fat, and more.
