Testosterone. A vital hormone produced by the testes that are negatively portrayed throughout the media due to improper use or cheating scandals within the sports realm. Although there are plenty of circumstances in which individuals abuse the use of testosterone supplements, the hormone can have a positive impact on the lives of men, especially in terms of weight loss.
Testosterone & Weight Management
Testosterone is known to have a profound impact on a variety of bodily functions from muscle growth to sex drive and mood. Through extensive research, scientists can now say that there is a direct correlation between testosterone levels and weight. Men who are overweight or diabetic often show signs of low testosterone. This begs the question, what is the relationship between body fat and testosterone?
Well, it turns out that body fat contains an enzyme, which converts testosterone into estrogen. As estrogen levels increase, the body slows the production of testosterone leading to the development of more body fat. For those that are already experiencing low testosterone levels, the accumulation of excess body fat worsens the condition.
How Testosterone Therapy Helps
Following therapy, the increased levels of testosterone begin to aid the body’s digestion of fat, leading to weight loss. In addition to the fat burning benefits of the hormone, patients that reach normal levels become much more active in their day to day lives and have increased self-esteem, leading to habits that continue to slim their waistline.
Lift Your Levels
Although testosterone has proven to help with weight loss, therapy should not and will not be administered to patients who do not have Low Testosterone levels. Delivering above normal levels of testosterone can lead to serious health issues, thus eliminating any benefits the hormone may have.
