What do you think of when you hear the word Testosterone? Most people say men, muscles, or sex drive. What they often don’t realize is that women have Testosterone, just a lesser amount than men have. (Men have some Estrogen too, but that is a topic for another day)
Testosterone performs a variety of functions. Yes, Testosterone is important for building muscles and giving you a healthy sex drive–both functions that are needed by women, not just men. Maintaining a healthy muscle mass helps to keep you mobile and vital as you age, plus it helps you to burn fat. However, Testosterone is so much more than that. Testosterone helps you to think clearly and to have energy. It is important for repairing damage in your musculoskeletal system, gets rid of night/day sweats, and is one of the best natural anti-depressants. It helps you to sleep better and age more gracefully.
The list of benefits goes on and on. An optimal Testosterone level is one thing that both men and women need in order to function optimally. Bio-identical Testosterone is an important piece of a hormone replacement program. When given, and monitored properly, you will no longer feel as if you have passed your peak.
