The hot summer months are upon us and that means swimsuit season. If you are dreading swimsuit season because you feel like your body is not ready, or you just want to give your body that little boost so that you feel your best in a swimsuit, testosterone replacement may be the right choice for you.
Many men find that, as they age, their bodies begin to store more stubborn fat and muscle mass reduces. Those two things, in combination, may make you less-than-thrilled to jump into a swimsuit. But, did you know that those two things may actually be the result of your body having low testosterone? All men begin to lose testosterone as they age, particularly after the age of 30-35. As the decline occurs, the body stores more fat and loses muscle mass, even if you are consistently working out and eating healthy. So do not worry if you have gained fat and lost muscle, even if you have been staying healthy and fit. It may just be the result of low testosterone.
If you want to make a big impact on your body’s appearance and enhance the impact of a healthy diet and workout routine, professionally-administered testosterone replacement therapy can help. Healthline explains how testosterone replacement therapy impacts your overall body composition, “Testosterone is one of many factors involved in the development of muscle bulk and strength. Testosterone increases neurotransmitters, which encourage tissue growth. It also interacts with nuclear receptors in DNA, which causes protein synthesis. Testosterone increases levels of growth hormone. That makes exercise more likely to build muscle. Testosterone increases bone density and tells the bone marrow to manufacture red blood cells. Men with very low levels of testosterone are more likely to suffer from bone fractures and breaks. Testosterone also plays a role in fat metabolism, helping men to burn fat more efficiently. Dropping levels of testosterone can cause an increase in body fat.” Many scientific studies have proven that testosterone therapy can help reduce fat and ultimately weight as well as increase muscle mass in many patients – giving you that beach body you have always wanted!
