Testosterone is a major player when it comes to regulating bodily functions in men; without it, the body can become susceptible to a whole range of dysfunctional issues, many of which have a significant bearing in a man’s daily life.
So, why is testosterone so important in maintaining a healthy body? Well, in short, the hormone is essential for proper physical growth and sexual functioning, as well as optimum mental and emotional stability. Furthermore, without adequate testosterone levels, a man may find it difficult to produce healthy sperm.
Some of the main processes that testosterone is responsible for include:
An interesting yet little-known fact is that a male begins to produce testosterone as little as seven weeks after conception. These levels continue to rise during puberty, until they finally peak during the late-teens to early twenties. Even more remarkably, the body only uses around 2% of all testosterone it produces. Yes, that means that almost 98% of your testosterone is totally inactive. The tiny amount that is used is either converted into other chemicals, stored in the testicles as sperm, or used to achieve all of the above functions.
This is why it is so important to make sure that your body is maintaining healthy, normal levels of testosterone as even a small dip can wreak havoc on everything from physical appearance and essential bodily functions to emotional temperament; this is especially true for older men whose levels will continue to naturally decline with age.
If you are exhibiting or worried by symptoms of low testosterone, a quick visit to your doctor should put your mind at ease. A simple blood test will determine your hormone levels; your doctor can then advise you on what steps to take next, depending on your results.
