What is testosterone?
1. a steroid hormone that stimulates development of male secondary sexual characteristics, produced mainly in the testes, but also in the ovaries and adrenal cortex.
Testosterone is the alpha inside of us all (assuming you are a male). The most important male hormone. The hormone that separates the strong from the weak and ultimately men from women.
Testosterone is not just a male thing, it is also produced by females but in lesser quantity.
So it is very important that we make certain that it does not drop below recommended levels.
From 30 years upwards our testosterone levels begins to naturally decline.
And it is up to us to fight this decline by maintaining healthy living standards.
Standards like good foods, exercises and certain abstinence.
So that is what Testosterone is. The hormone responsible for your sex drive as well as muscle growth.
Low levels of it is bad and that is why you must go check it out by going for a test.
