Testosterone

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is the hormone produced by the testicles. It is responsible for the proper development of male sexual characteristics. It helps promote the circulation of blood, and is responsible for the maintenance of muscle bulk. Without an adequate testosterone level there can be important psychological affects such as loss of libido, reduced brain and intellectual activity and mood changes.
