Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Testosterone?
A. Testosterone is the “male” sex hormone responsible for sexual performance, muscular hypertrophy, densification of bones, and hair growth. Although testosterone is a hormone produced in both men and women, men produce approximately ten times more of the hormone than women do. In males, testosterone is produced in several different parts of the body, but primarily in the testes and pituitary gland in the brain.
Q. Why should I use a testosterone supplement?
A. Because testosterone levels are highest during puberty and then slowly decrease as the body ages, most males over the age of 21 can benefit from using a testosterone supplement. Safely increasing testosterone levels can help you see quicker, more intense workout results, it can help you maintain a lean, cut figure, it increases energy and fuels sex drive and improves sexual performance. We especially recommend testosterone supplements for men over the age of 40 because that’s when your testosterone levels tend to take a dive.
Q. Are there side effects associated with testosterone supplements?
A. Most testosterone supplements are safe to be used for general use but it is important that you follow the directions exactly as they are printed on the label. It’s also important to remember that testosterone supplements are not meant to be used over an extended period of time but rather, should be cycled (on for 4-6 weeks, off for 4-6 weeks) to avoid increased estrogen levels, male pattern baldness, or infertility.
Q. Are testosterone supplements FDA approved?
A. Because testosterone supplements are considered “dietary supplements” they are not required to be approved by the FDA. All of the individual ingredients within testosterone supplements should be approved by the FDA but the supplements themselves don’t have to be approved.
