What is testosterone and is it safe?
Testosterone is a hormone found in all mammals made in specialized structures called gonads (Leydig cells in testes in men and ovaries in women). Hormones are involved in just about every biological function including growth, immune function, metabolism, sexual reproduction and more. As we age, our levels naturally decline. The decline in testosterone is both a cause of aging and a byproduct of aging. We cannot change our age, but we can enhance or slow some aspects of the aging process within our bodies.
