Testosterone is a male hormone which is secreted by the adrenal glands and the testes. It is an essential factor in the muscle growth, the development of male sex organs, energy levels and sex drive. Also, during adolescence, the production of this hormone is at the peak, resulting in a deepening of the voice along with the development of facial and pubic hair. However, some individuals may experience a decreased level of testosterone so they might need to use several treatments in order to bring it back to normal and help them treat their sexual dysfunctions.
Some of the symptoms of a lower level of testosterone include muscle atrophy, bone loss, sexual dysfunction, and various mood swings. There are several options available which can be used as a low testosterone treatment that can help an individual to keep the levels of testosterone in his blood at normal rates. These treatments can come in several forms such as gel, patches, pills and injection.
Testosterone patches are applied once, each day and they provide a constant level of hormone. They are usually applied to a clean area on the dry skin on the abdomen, thighs, back or upper arms. It can also be applied on the shaved area of the scrotum mostly because the skin is thinnest there therefore it allows a more effective delivery of this male hormone. You should also avoid placing the patch directly on sharp body parts, on oily, irritated or broken skin, or on those areas that are under pressure when sleeping or sitting down. So how does the patch work? Well the hormone is absorbed by the skin then released into your bloodstream. These patches have been used for over two decades now and some of them have also been approved by the FDA.
Other popular way to raise your testosterone levels in your blood is through pills which contain testosterone undecanoate. These pills are considered to be more effective than the testosterone patch due to the fact that they are made from 100% natural supplements and they are also safer to use. They should be fully swallowed without chewing and with plenty of water. Also, these pills should be taken up to three pills a day, depending on the product and the dosage of Tribulus Terrestris extract found in the pills.
Testosterone pills were first released in the later years of the 1940�s, and since then they were thoroughly tested and studied. However, during the past years, they have developed some amazing natural formulas which offer great results at the lowest risk. They are number one choice of most professional and non-professional bodybuilders but also by people with sexual dysfunctions, so it is both a medicine and a supplement. There are plenty of benefits but also some general risks associated with these types of treatments. Usually, treating this deficiency with testosterone boosters can lead to an increased energy, sex drive, muscle mass, thicker skin and hair, better mood and confidence, bone density and also an improvement in doing mental tasks by increasing the ability to concentrate.
