Testosterone are often associated with men and always used as a taboo when relating it to women. It is a hormone present in both male and female but more in males.

- Bone and muscle mass
- Fat storage
- Red blood cells production
- Sexual health
- Physical health
Low Testosterone in Maturing Men
As you grow older, naturally your body wears off some natural occurring substances like testosterone. Most of the time, testosterone levels in men begin to drop after the age of 30. The problem comes in when the drop level is drastic or when it stops being produced completely. It will lead to symptoms of low testosterone that could affect one’s health.
Drastically decreasing testosterone levels can lead to:
- Erection problems
- Increased body fat
- Decreased muscle strength
- Loss of body hair
- Swelling and tenderness of the breasts
- Sleep difficulties
- Depression and anxiety
These are all due to different factors such as hereditary, stress, alcohol, medication side effects, and many more. It is important to consult your doctor to know the underlying cause to tackle it.

There are also herbal remedies that stimulates testosterone production in your body naturally without external help. While there are many promising solutions out there, it is also good to talk to your doctor about it, as it may come with side effects.
