There are more than 75 hormones in the human body, and probably the most familiar and important for fitness is testosterone, which promotes testosterone, boosts testosterone levels, increases androgenic hormones, and you can always think of the different products you’ve heard about in various different sources that will have this ability, and these terms are a direct result of the benefits of making you more confident, younger, stronger and stronger, but Seriously, how many of you know what you’re talking about and have a basic understanding of testosterone? You just want to improve it but do not know how much is high and how much is low, what level you are at now, let alone how it works, improve can bring benefits and at the same time what will be the disadvantages, the following we will enter a door, one by one answers to these questions.
Testosterone a hormonal hormone, also known as testosterone, testosterone or testosterone, is mainly produced by the testes in men or the ovaries in women, but the adrenal glands are also capable of producing small amounts of testosterone. Before you can know the function of testosterone, you need to understand what the hormone is.
Hormones are chemical substances produced by the body that play a key role in various bodily functions such as reproduction, metabolism, growth and development, and simply put, they act as messengers to cells and organs to release signals and thus regulate bodily functions.
Testosterone, on the other hand, being the most important male sex hormone, is responsible for muscle strength and mass, bone density and strength, blood production, calcium balance in the body, sexual drive, sperm production, energy levels and mood.
To put it bluntly, the role of testosterone is easy to see – the more testosterone you have, the more masculine you sound and look, and when testosterone levels are too low, it can affect corresponding “masculine characteristics” such as sperm count and quality, cause sleep problems, make it harder to build muscle and strength, cause lower libido and even affect erections… and it’s important to know if you have too little testosterone or not.
Obviously we need to be clear about exactly what testosterone ranges are considered normal.
It’s also very simple, a simple blood test at the hospital can help you test your total testosterone and free testosterone levels, generally speaking, the normal range of testosterone in men is:
Total testosterone levels in adult men are in the range of 9.45-37.45 nmol/L (270-1070ng/dl)
Total testosterone levels are in the range of 0.21-3.01 nmol/L (6-86ng/dl) in adult females.
You can see that indeed women’s testosterone production is very much lower than men’s, while free testosterone levels are generally around 2% of total testosterone levels, regardless of gender.
While estrogen production selectively concentrates fat on the breasts, hips, and thighs and inhibits the accumulation of fat in the waist area, male hormones cause fat to be distributed more in the waist and abdomen, which leads to a wide range of fat accumulation in the peripheral limbs of men, who tend to be more centripetal, and women, who tend to be more peripheral.
On a broad scale, some people’s bodies naturally produce more testosterone than others, but that doesn’t mean that just because you’re lower on the numbers you’re necessarily experiencing the symptoms, and this will be different for everyone, especially at different ages, and the testosterone levels at which you experience low testosterone symptoms will be more significantly different. And it’s not just related to your testosterone levels, it also needs to look at your free testosterone levels, as most of the testosterone produced by the body will bind to two proteases in the body, making it difficult to work on related aspects.
Although it may seem that everyone’s testosterone levels can vary greatly, you can rest assured that the vast majority of people are in the middle of this range, and there’s nothing wrong with being appropriately high or low. If you do have low testosterone levels, you should first consult your doctor, rather than buying the products on the market. I suggest that you can start by adjusting your diet, paying attention to your daily activity level, increasing your sleep and improving your lifestyle.
Excess testosterone can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, as well as affect the normal metabolism of sugar and fat, and it has been analyzed many times before that excessive testosterone may be more likely to cause skin problems (enlarged pores, acne, etc.) Increased oil secretion may also have an impact on hair loss.
A healthier lifestyle is the most effective way to maintain your testosterone production, and if you feel you need to improve in some areas, then seeking medical advice is the most feasible way to do so.
