Testosterone is your defining hormone as a guy. It helps to improve and facilitate a lot of what makes most men feel manly. Testosterone is directly responsible for muscle development, the development of make sexual organs and characteristics, for hair growth and for defining male features, like a strong chin and a sturdy build.
Guys who start to lose their testosterone as they grow older or take up poor lifestyle changes will start to become soggy around the midsection and chest. Their belly and pectorals will begin to sag and will become harder to firm up and maintain. Guys with low testosterone won’t be able to perform sexually as well, and they won’t feel as manly. Low testosterone, as it hurts sexual desire and sexual performance, can cause relationship problems and can create friction between couples.
It also makes it harder for the guy to develop and increase musculature. Muscles simple won’t grow as easily and new muscle tissue won’t form as well without the required testosterone.
As testosterone levels decrease, the male’s sexual characteristics will start to become less pronounced. Low testosterone can actually cause penile shrinkage and contribute to impotence and a complete loss of sexual desire over time.
Thankfully, no matter what is causing the low testosterone, it can be dealt with. By changing up their lifestyle, by taking medication and by making healthy choices, men can increase their testosterone levels and get their manhood back
