You’re a woman. And, like many women, you may believe that testosterone is a male hormone only…but you’d be wrong. It’s true that men are born with much higher levels of the hormone than females. But low testosterone can adversely affect women as well as men. This is Where We Can Help Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is not something to be entered into lightly, for both men and women…especially for women. The dosage must be exact, to reap the benefits without suffering from the masculine side effects that are possible with the wrong amount. In other words, never proceed on… Read More »

What is IGF-1 ? IGF-1 or Insulin-similar Growth Factor is a hormone also known as somatomedin C. This molecule is a protein hormone of the polypeptide variety like so many other hormones in the human body. IGF-1 consists of seventy amino-type acids that form one chain with three bridges of the disulfide. It is secreted and manufactured by the liver and arranged in a way which is quite similar, in the structure of its molecules, like insulin. Some assume that many of the benefits that insulin provides to the body involve the production of IGF-1 by the liver. This hormone… Read More »

Oct. 5, 2012 — Is it possible to safely take hormone replacement therapy (HRT)? That question is at the heart of a small new study testing whether better timing and refined delivery may help early menopausal women get the benefits of hormones relatively safety and without long-term risks.
NEW YORK (WABC) — It was a decade ago many women stopped taking hormone replacement therapy fearful after the federal government pulled the plug on a massive ten year study of Hormone Replacement Therapy. The study linked the hormones to cancer, heart disease, stroke and blood clots.
Jose Luis Pelaez Inc / Getty Images A new Danish study offers some reassurance to women using hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopausal symptoms: the treatment may not only ease discomfort from hot flashes, but early use also appears not to increase womens risk of heart problems or death. Skepticism surrounding hormone replacement therapy stems from the results of the landmark Womens Health Initiative (WHI), a large federal study that was halted in 2002 when study authors linked estrogen-progestin pills to increased risks for heart disease and breast cancer
Did you know? Recent studies have confirmed the link between low testosterone (“Low-T”) and depression. Did you know that clinical depression has been shown to have a direct relationship to low testosterone (“Low-T”)? Older men are at especially high-risk for depression. Older men also usually experience a dramatic decline in their testosterone levels. Coincidence? Perhaps. But perhaps not. But it is not only older men who are at risk for depression. Men of all ages who have Low-T are also more apt to be depressed. Which Came First: the Chicken or the Egg? The connection between low testosterone and depression… Read More »
The Importance of Hormonal Balance for Menopause More than one researcher has described the human body’s hormonal balance as “the dance of life” or, more specifically, “the dance of the hormones.” And this is indeed an apt analogy. Your endocrine system is a delicate balance that is interrelated. When one hormone increases or decreases, it often has a spillover effect on one or more other hormones. And This is Especially True Concerning Menopause The dictionary definition of menopause is “the time of cessation of a woman’s reproductive ability.” Female ovaries slow down and eventually cease the production of hormones once… Read More »
Confused about organic foods? Are organic foods worth the extra costs? And are organic foods always healthier? Here are the facts. Both pro and con. Keep reading and make an informed decision You’ve heard the clamor from the food “experts” about why you should or should not buy organic foods. As with so many food issues, there is no consensus. “Organic foods are more expensive, but they’re worth it, ” says one nutritionist. “No, they’re not worth the added expense,” says another opinionated “foodie.” So what to do?

Clomiphene (also known as Clomid) was first used in the 1960’s for women suffering from abnormal ovulation. Later, it was approved for women who were unable to ovulate. In 1989, clomiphene was discovered to ascertain fertility in females. How? Women who were capable of pregnancy would gain bone mineral density while using the drug. Women who were unable to conceive and bear children did not experience the same increase in bone mineral density. But Clomiphene Does Not Just Help Women Incredibly, clomiphene has proven to be helpful to men that are suffering from low levels of testosterone (“Low-T”). Hyperstimulation is… Read More »
In his in-depth article on Human Growth Hormone (HGH) which appeared in the March 29, 2012, issue of Esquire magazine, Craig Davidson takes a fair and level-headed approach to this controversial topic. He begins by clearing up the misconception about hormones: performance enhancing drugs (PED’s) and testosterone and growth hormone replacement therapy are lumped together in the minds of the casual observer. Athletes are continually in the news for abusing anabolic steroids, testosterone and growth hormone. This not only causes many to feel that they are illegal (not true; all of these substances are legally available by prescription), but most… Read More »

Recently, intermittent fasting (IF) has skyrocketed in popularity to become the latest trend in the worlds of health, fitness, and weight-loss. There are many reasons why this has happened.

Very few supplements in both worlds of sports and nootropics (smart pills) have been studied and researched as extensively as creatine. It first appeared on the radar screen in the early 1990s and has proven itself ever since.

Many other products have come and gone, but creatine has shown it has staying power, getting better and better, and continuing to provide real-world results.… Read More »
The Facts About Cholesterol…the Truth May Surprise You! Cholesterol.

It’s common knowledge that doctors and scientists are convinced that high levels of cholesterol are a grave and immediate threat to your continued good health. As a result of this belief, prescription pads for statin cholesterol-lowering drugs are issued in an almost assembly-line manner. But is this Approach Always the Right Way to Go?

The third eye. The mysterious chakra center residing directly between the eyebrows. The famous French mathematician and philosopher Rene Descartes described it as “the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed.” Scientists consider it the producer of the hormone melatonin.

The tiny gland is small (rice-sized), and is shaped like a pinecone, hence the name. It is a mere 1/3rd inch long, with a… Read More »

The Pituitary Gland Here’s Why it is Referred to as “The Master Gland.” It’s small. About the size of a pea. It’s hidden in a bony cavern called the pituitary fossa, behind the bridge of the nose, between your ears and beneath the base of the brain. When compared to the body’s major organs (heart, liver, kidneys, stomach, etc.) it is often overlooked. But it Plays a Constant, Vital and Life-Preserving Role Every Second of Your Life The pituitary gland is often called “The Master Gland” since it acts as the control center for several other hormonal glands (e.g., thyroid,… Read More »
The Relationship Between Sleep and Growth Hormone Athletes, bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts, and health-conscious people have long known about the importance of sleep in replenishing Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels. Want proof? Consider this: even the best athletes in the world may see a drop in their performance due to extended travels across several different time zones. This travel disrupts their circadian rhythms, a 24-hour cycle driven by a circadian clock that has a massive impact on many bodily functions, including the sleep-wake cycle. Many athletes, especially endurance athletes, experience a suppressed and weakened immune system by the nature of their… Read More »
The definition of fasting is uncomplicated: voluntarily not eating solid food or drinking calorie-containing beverages for a specified period. The practice of fasting has been done for thousands of years for a broad range of reasons. There are several well-known health benefits of fasting. Here is a list of many of them: Fasting improves cognitive functioning. Fasting can make your brain function at a higher, more efficient level.

The way we eat has changed more in the past 50 years than in the previous 10,000 years. If you took a stroll through the aisles of today’s supermarkets, you could count up to 47,000 products — or more. A great many of these products turn out to be artificial byproducts of just one acidic food…corn. And corn is far from the healthy vegetable that many people believe it is. Corn can wreak havoc on blood sugar levels, due to its high carbohydrate content. This is particularly the case for diabetics. Corn can also cause or aggravate allergies, lead to… Read More »

If you have been waiting for the opportunity to try HGH, the time is NOW!

Want to Boost Your Testosterone Levels? Then Start Long-Distance Running! Attention ladies! If you’re interested in a great sex life, look no further than a marathon runner.”Marathon runners are the best in bed,” proclaimed a recent headline. According to the latest scientific research, long-distance runners are red-hot…scientifically speaking. The headline is based on a study that merely looked at long-distance runners’ finger ratios — said to be a marker for high testosterone levels — not reported partner sexual satisfaction (or as other sources indicate, high sperm counts and “reproductive fitness”). If marathon runners are great lovers, and desirable to women,… Read More »

What You Need to Know About Vitamin C In one of his earliest explorations across the Atlantic Ocean, Christopher Columbus noticed that many of his sailors appeared sick…very sick. They were lethargic, with aching limbs and debilitating fatigue. These symptoms were so pronounced that Columbus was ready to have the sick men walk the plank when a lush, verdant island suddenly appeared. The sick people begged to be let out on the dry land, and Columbus agreed. Once there, the sailors devoured strange fruits and plants, and a miracle unfolded: they began to heal from whatever affliction had caused their… Read More »
More Sleep Leads to ‘Better Levels of Arousal.’ Is your libido tired? If so, then a lack of sleep may be the reason why researchers claim. A study has found a direct relationship between how much sleep a person gets and their level of desire the next day. The amount of shut-eye also affects how aroused they will become. The study, involving 171 women, showed that each additional hour of sleep increased the likelihood of sexual activity with a partner by 14 percent, according to University of Michigan researchers. Sleep was also necessary for genital arousal, according to the research,… Read More »

In addition to the many well-known benefits of deep, restorative sleep, here is something else to consider: research shows that people who regularly get enough sleep have healthier body weights than those who don’t. Whether that is because sleep keeps weight in check by releasing growth hormone, or that people with lighter body weights may sleep more soundly, or some other reason, the facts remain unchanged: adequate levels of sleep help you make better food selections. Researcher Hassan Dashti found a link between sleeping and the food choices people make that may explain it. For a study published in the… Read More »

An Introduction to Nootropics The word Nootropics is from the Greek words nous, or “mind,” and trepein meaning “to bend/turn.” Nootropics are also referred to as smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers. Nootropics are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals and certain foods that have shown the potential to improve mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration. The term nootropic was invented in 1972 by Corneliu Giurgea, a Romanian psychologist, and chemist. According to Giurgea, nootropic substances should have the following characteristics: 1. They should enhance learning and memory. 2. They should improve… Read More »

LONDON (Reuters) — Taking too much Tylenol during pregnancy could reduce testosterone levels in male babies, according to a new study. This could lead to possible reproductive problems later in life, researchers said. The University of Edinburgh study tested the effect of paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol) on testosterone production in mice that carried grafts of human testicular tissue. These grafts have been shown to mimic how the developing testes grow and function during pregnancy. Scientists gave the mice a typical daily dose of paracetamol over a period of either 24 hours or seven days.… Read More »
Lifespan length has proven to be a continuing source of mystery. Why do some people enjoy living for decades and others are not so fortunate? Up until recently, the answer has been elusive.

Telomeres: The Overlooked Key to Solving the Puzzle of Aging Telomeres. Until recently, this word was seldom mentioned in anti-aging circles. Research scientists have been aware of telomeres since the 1930s when DNA researchers determined that telomeres played a role in stabilizing the ends of chromosomes. However, it was not until the early 1980s that more information was uncovered and the anatomy and functions of telomeres became well-known. But the role this fascinating substance plays in the battle against aging and other severe diseases was still not recognized. Recent research, however, has changed the entire equation, and the importance of… Read More »

Upon discovering that they are about to become fathers, men often experience a drop in two hormones: testosterone and estradiol. This happens even before their babies are born, according to a new University of Michigan study. Past research has demonstrated that men’s hormones change after they become fathers, and there is some evidence that this is a function of a decline after the child’s birth. What is unique about the new U-M study is this: it is the first research to show that the decline may begin even earlier, during the transition to fatherhood, said Robin Edelstein, the study’s lead… Read More »

In spite of protestations to the contrary, aging is a disease…period. Nothing, absolutely nothing about our bodies improves with the passing of time. And our bones are as subject to the damage that aging inflicts on any other body part. The older you are, the higher your chance of having osteoporosis. Women’s bones are thinner than men’s, and bone density rapidly declines after menopause. Therefore, it’s not surprising that about 80% of Americans with osteoporosis are women. But men can be stricken with this affliction as well. Granted, osteoporosis is much more common in women, but men are at risk,… Read More »

This difference is due to a variety of factors (genetics, illness, lifestyle). However, there is a general rule that we experience a decline of approximately 10% per decade, beginning at around age 30. This is true for three of our most essential hormones: testosterone, human growth hormone… Read More »
Silicon Valley has turned its attention to discovering a cure for a universal disease: AGING. They are pouring billions into biotech firms to attempt to ‘hack the code’ of life, despite concerns about potential unintended consequences. In Palo Alto, the heart of Silicon Valley, hedge fund manager Joon Yun is doing a basic calculation. According to US social security data, the probability of a 25-year-old dying before age 26 is 0.1%. If we could keep that risk constant throughout life instead of it rising due to age-related disease, the average person would live 1,000 years. Yun finds the prospect intriguing… Read More »
Let’s take a look at a major contributor to the aging process and what it can tell us about slowing the ravages of time on our health. The factor we will explore is cortisol, a hormone that controls dozens of vital functions in the body. When cortisol levels are too high or too low, rapid-aging processes accelerate.
Hormone Replacement Therapy > Testosterone Therapy Testosterone is the primary male hormone that maintains muscle mass and strength, fat distribution, bone mass, sperm production, sex drive, and potency. Testosterone is considered to be the “male hormone.” Testosterone: A “male hormone” — a sex hormone produced by the testes that encourage the development of male sexual characteristics, stimulates the activity of the male secondary sex characteristics, penis growth, muscle development and masculine features. Chemically, testosterone is 17-beta-hydroxy-4-androstane-3-one. Testosterone is the most potent of the naturally occurring androgens. The androgens in general also cause the development of male sex characteristics, such as… Read More »
Football is a team sport, and all of the players must perform at their peaks for the team to succeed, regardless of their positions. But there are two indisputable facts about the importance of those roles. First, the highly skilled players on the offense (quarterbacks, running backs and pass receivers) get the most publicity and are considered the “glory players,” since they put points on the board. But many experienced football coaches and fans know that the game is decided “in the trenches,” by the performance of both the offensive and defensive linemen. Without the blocking and tackling that goes… Read More »
With the constant drumbeat of headlines in the news about the risks of Testosterone, it would be easy to believe that there are no health benefits in Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) for middle-aged men, only health hazards. Heart attacks and strokes are mentioned prominently in the television advertisements by law firms that are just lying in wait to file lawsuits against the Testosterone manufacturers. If that weren’t bad enough, there is a seemingly endless trail of “recommendations” by “medical experts,” including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that call for severe restrictions on a physician’s ability to prescribe Testosterone for… Read More »
An Introduction to Human Growth Hormone Growth Hormone. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have probably heard about it. We see HGH mentioned on TV news and read about it in all the prominent newspapers and magazines, and on the Internet. Athletes and famous Hollywood actors are using Human Growth Hormone (HGH) for everything from sports enhancement and anti-aging, trying to turn back the clock, or for only to look and feel younger inside and out. Sylvester Stallone, aka “Rocky” and “Rambo” was busted in Australia with HGH and allegedly “misplaced” his doctor’s prescription. He was arrested and… Read More »
Testosterone Replacement Therapy Lowers Heart Attack Risk You’ve heard the commercials and seen the advertisements from law offices concerning the risks of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Maybe you believed what you observed, and you’re convinced that testosterone therapy increases the risk of severe health hazards, especially heart attacks. However, a recent study has concluded the exact opposite: high levels of testosterone are linked to a lower risk of fatal heart attacks and strokes, and lowers overall mortality for men. There’s no question that the role testosterone plays in maintaining men’s health is complex and controversial. Dire warnings of severe, adverse… Read More »
Vitamin B12 Boasts Brain Benefits Simple Dietary Changes May Help Ward Off Brain Volume Loss in Old Age
By Robynne Boyd
WebMD Health News Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD
Sept. 8, 2008 — Vitamin B12 may help protect against brain volume loss in the elderly.
That’s according to researchers from the University of Oxford in England.
The scientists studied 107 people between the ages of 61 and 87 without memory or thinking problems. The average age of participants was 73, and 54% were women.
The Small Gland That Does Such a Huge Job When considering Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy, the first gland that comes to mind is the pituitary gland. This is because the pituitary is the gland responsible for producing and secreting Growth Hormone. But all of the other glands in the body play vital roles as well. In fact, most glands work as a team, in the correct balance. Growth Hormone replacement therapy can help to maintain that all-important balance. Here’s a look at the crucial hypothalamus gland. The hypothalamus acts as an internal regulator of many bodily functions, such… Read More »
Medical research increasingly points to out-of-control inflammation as a significant factor in both causing and aggravating many diseases, and psoriasis is no exception. But the good news is this – adopting an anti-inflammatory diet may help control symptoms of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. As with all other diseases, there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment, and the same goes for nutritional approaches as well. But there is some scientific evidence that making changes to your eating habits can improve your health and reduce your risk of developing associated afflictions like heart disease and diabetes. Let’s take a look at several inflammation fighters…… Read More »
The Curse of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease No question about it: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is indeed a curse. Liver disease often comes with a stigma of alcohol or drug abuse. But most of the people suffering from NAFLD are not problem drinkers or drug abusers. NAFLD is Often a Result of Genetics, not a Wrong Lifestyle That’s right. If your parents or other members of your immediate family have NAFLD, you are at high risk for the disease and need to be tested for liver function. This is true regardless of whether or not you are showing symptoms… Read More »
Taking exercise, not drinking too much alcohol, eating enough fruit and vegetables and not smoking can add up to 14 years to your life, a study says.
Research involving 20,000 people over a decade found those who failed on all criteria were four times more likely to have died than those who succeeded.
The findings held true regardless of how overweight or poor they were.
What and when you eat at the end of the day can have a large impact on your body. If you eat the right thing at the right time you can actually lose fat while you sleep. Eat the wrong thing at the wrong time and you can plan on waking up with a little more body fat in the morning.
To successfully loss weight, you’ll need to stop eating two hours before going to bed. You should not feel hungry before bed, but you should also not feel completely full. When you’re trying to lose weight, going to bed at night feeling slightly hungry is actually a good thing. It’s your body telling you that what you did that day is working and you’re losing body fat. If you don’t feel this way when going to bed, you’re probably not losing fat.
Now lets say you follow your brain’s directive and eat close to bedtime, your body will not dip into the fat it has stored away, and will probably even store some more. Every time you eat, your metabolism increases slightly. However, this effect is minimized late at night. You don’t get the same metabolism boosting benefit when you eat just before bed, because a couple of hours after dinner, your body will start preparing for sleep. This natural slowing down of your metabolic rate overrides any metabolic boost you might get from eating. So once you hit the pillow, the only calories you’re going to use are the basic calories you need to keep your heart beating and your lungs breathing and allow your eyes to move in REM sleep. This is only a minimal number of calories.
The benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) to treat low Testosterone in both men and women substantially outweigh any risks according to the results of a new study presented at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists’ (AACE) 24th Annual Scientific and Clinical Congress. Low Testosterone — also known as “low-T” — is characterized by the lack of sex drive, diminishing energy, hair, bone, and muscle mass loss, joint aches and pains, accumulated slabs of fat, depression, and mental confusion, or “brain fog.” The panel was responding to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) safety alert issued in March 2015 warning… Read More »
How to Understand and Deal with Cirrhosis Cirrhosis. It is the most common liver disease. And one of the most dreaded and feared liver diseases. Cirrhosis is defined as the scarring of the liver tissue, and is caused by chronic, long-standing liver disease. Cirrhosis is particularly insidious since it can progress for years, even decades before it is detected. In fact, researchers have concluded that up to 80% of the liver can suffer damage before showing any symptoms. And often, when it is detected, the damage is irreversible. If cirrhosis continues on its path of destruction, the result may be… Read More »

L-Carnitine reduces physical and mental fatigue, improves cognitive function in centenarians
A report published in the December, 2007 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition described the results of a study conducted by Italian researchers which found a positive effect for L-carnitine (levo-carnitine) on energy levels and cognitive function in individuals 100 years of age and older. The age-related decline in L-carnitine, which plays a role in cellular energy metabolism, could be involved in the fatigue experienced by many older individuals.
One thing most people agree on is this: aging is not for sissies. For most men, the combination of constant fatigue, increasing weakness and loss of endurance, nagging aches and pains that only get worse, and a severely diminished libido result in depression…sometimes severe and hopeless depression, even suicide. Therefore, it should come as no great shock that a growing army of men are willing to try Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). In 2013, more than 2.3 million American men used testosterone gels, patches, pellets, and injections. This figure is twice the number of men undergoing TRT since as recently as… Read More »

You hear the same mantra, over and over again, almost daily and seemingly from everywhere. Stress kills. We’re chronically overstressed. We must deal with and reduce stress. It’s true that excessive pressure causes a plethora of problems that are harmful to both our mind and body. And it’s also true that in today’s 24/7 connected, rapidly changing, shrinking, crisis-filled world, we are subjected to a constant bombardment of “stressors” (circumstances that are stressful). Also, there has never been a time in recorded history where stress just seems to be increasing, at a maddening pace, without a break. However, remember this:… Read More »
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) has been shown in some studies to have side effects such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, Edema (swelling), water retention, joint pain, Gigantism (abnormal bone growth) and bloating. The symptoms listed for HGH abuse are typically a result of high doses, far beyond what is recommended. People with cancer, or at high risk for cancer, or have a family history of a disease, especially prostate and reproductive cancer should be very cautious before undergoing HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and discuss your medical condition and family history thoroughly and honestly with your physician. Here’s why this… Read More »

Developed in the late 1960’s, Piracetam was the first compound that was classified as a nootropic drug and is the most well-known of the cognitive enhancers. Piracetam was the first racetam to be synthesized and is the chemical from which the word “nootropic” was born. Piracetam was first used in Belgium in the late 1960’s, where it was tested in clinical studies. The former Soviet Union was also deeply involved with Piracetam and conducted several studies of their own. Piracetam is perhaps the most famous of the so-called “smart drugs,” for a few reasons. First, it works. Users report enhanced… Read More »

Alzheimer’s disease. Among baby boomers, this is the most dreaded disease imaginable. In fact, the very word causes many aging people to shudder in apprehension.

New research has revealed that approximately one third of men aged 18-35 with type 2 diabetes have low testosterone levels.
Dr. Paresh Dandona and colleagues from the State University of New York at Buffalo measured circulating testosterone levels in 38 men with type 1 diabetes and 24 men with type 2 diabetes. Results showed that testosterone levels were significantly lower in participants with type 2 diabetes than they were in men with type 1 diabetes. 33% of participants with type 2 diabetes were found to have low testosterone levels, whilst 58% had testosterone levels that were below normal for their age. In comparison, just 8% type 1 diabetic patients had testosterone levels below the lower limit of normal.

SOMATROPIN Somatropin is the scientific name for Biosynthetic Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is produced naturally by a healthy human body. Though Somatropin is not biologically derived, it is structurally identical to HGH. HGH has several beneficial effects on the body. First, HGH promotes the development and growth of lean muscle mass. The number of muscle cells a person has is a result of heredity. After puberty ends, endogenous HGH plateaus and then recedes, leading to an atrophy of natural muscle development. The only way that muscles can become stronger is by enhancing the size and number of muscle cells… Read More »

According to all of the leading physician-scientists: HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Sprays are the least efficient way of receiving human growth hormone exogenously (from outside the body). Here’s why… First, because the dose in these sprays is so small (30,000 nanograms), at best you would get a placebo effect. Second, because HGH has difficulty penetrating the membrane of the body orally, thus it is nearly impossible to receive an adequate dose. Most doctors who prescribe HGH via injection consider HGH sprays to be an HGH scam. Most people who use the so-called HGH nasal or oral sprays, get no results… Read More »

One of the most significant concerns of men over age 50 is losing strength as they age. They don’t want to lose their independence because of frailty. So, what can they do to keep their muscles and bones healthy? The answer is, what’s really behind their loss of strength. Low Testosterone (‘Low-T”) Levels Increase a Man’s Risk for Disability Fact: certain forms of exercise, diet and supplements will help older folks keep their bones and muscles stay active as they age. But that’s just part of the story. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism… Read More »
Boosting men’s Testosterone levels could reduce deaths from heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes, United Kingdom (UK) doctors and scientists say. A team in Sheffield has demonstrated that Testosterone has a “significant impact” on the way the body handles sugar and fat. At the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting, they said low Testosterone (Low-T) was common in type 2 diabetic patients. Experts said the field was being “turned upside down” as Testosterone was previously considered a cause of these problems…not a method of prevention or a solution to them. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) was thought to explain why men are more… Read More »
Most people know that there are two types of cholesterol: the “good” and the “wrong” types. The right kind is High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL), and it protects against heart disease by transporting excess cholesterol out of the body. The wrong type, Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), circulates in the blood, blocks our veins and arteries, and causes a build-up of plaque — a sticky, gooey substance that sticks to our vessels and eventually hardens and becomes rigid and inflexible. This constricts our blood flow and can lead to a host of health problems: heart attack, stroke and accelerated aging. This is due to a… Read More »

Ask any aging man… The effects of lowered testosterone levels that occur in an aging man’s body are anything but pretty: weakened, flabby muscles, steady accumulation of ugly, toxin-laden fat, chronic fatigue, annoying joint pain…the hits just keep on coming. What’s worse is that so many well-meaning “experts,” physicians included, continue to give their older patients that same old sad refrain…, “it’s natural and happens to all of us…just get used to it” or some other meaningless platitudes that do nothing…absolutely nothing…to help stop the advance of these sad-sack symptoms. But you can fight back with Testosterone Teplacement Therapy (TRT).… Read More »
If you’re worried about Testosterone Replacement, consider this: men with low Testosterone (Low-T) are not less likely to die. On the contrary, according to a recent study, they are more liable to die! Men with low Testosterone levels after age 40 have a higher risk of death over a four-year period than those with normal levels of the hormone, the study suggests. However, researchers caution that the link between low Testosterone and early death is still somewhat uncertain. They add that it’s possible that a third unknown factor is responsible for both low Testosterone levels and increased mortality.… Read More »

Mean body mass index (BMI) in 46 hypogonadal men with grade III obesity dropped from 41.9 to 33.6 kg/m2 while they were receiving testosterone undecanoate at 1,000 mg by intramuscular injection every 12 weeks for up to 6 years, Farid Saad, Ph.D., reported at the joint meeting of the International Congress of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society.

If you are trying to lose weight, it makes sense that drinking apple cider vinegar before meals will help you achieve your goals. Keep reading and learn why. Apples are a great source of pectin, and including pectin in your diet can make you feel sated and more satisfied.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — For women with thinning bones, Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy is a different but possibly effective option for battling osteoporosis. “The idea of growth hormone helping osteoporosis is not new,” says Dr. Michael Farrell, an internist at Allegheny General Hospital. A study from Sweden indicates that women on growth hormone replacement therapy had denser, thicker bones, and therefore had greater protection from fractures. “This study looked at fracture risk, which is what you really care about,” says Dr. Farrell. The study involved 80 women, ages 50 to 70. For 18 months, they got daily shots of either a… Read More »

The new study was hailed by a menopause awareness group but a researcher who led a wider probe into HRT said it was worryingly underpowered

(Reuters) – A few sessions of behavioral therapy, even a “self-help” version, may help some women find relief from menopausal hot flashes, according to a British study. Researchers writing in the journal Menopause said that after six weeks of cognitive behavioral therapy, more than two-thirds of the women who underwent, through group sessions or self-help, had a “clinically significant” drop in problems related to hot flashes and night sweats. Hormone replacement therapy is considered the most effective treatment of hot flashes, but since hormones have been linked to increased risks of heart disease, blood clots and breast cancer, many women want alternative remedies.
