Testosterone Injections Benefits

Written by Author - Authors Medical experts of the National HRT Clinic - October 16, 2015

There are many benefits of testosterone injections for men and testosterone cream for women as they age, including increasing positive feelings of well-being, mood enhancement, increased muscle tone, weight loss, and a significant boost in desire and physical intimacy.

Testosterone Injections

This essential hormone that is produced in the testes and adrenal glands in men and the ovaries and adrenals in women is said to decrease in volume in later years. This can cause a damaging effect on many areas of the body. In addition to changes that can affect hair growth, mood, cognitive functions, and sex, there are four areas in particular that we want to point out right now.

They are:

  • Heart Health

In studies of older men with heart disease, low levels of testosterone have often been noted. Low T treatment has been shown to increase red blood cell production, energy, exercise capacity, and provide benefits to heart health. An indirect benefit for the heart is that testosterone therapy will aid in weight loss, which will then help the heart to function in a more efficient manner. Excess weight causes the heart to pump harder.

  • Muscle Health

One of the ways testosterone aids in promoting healthy muscles is by increasing neurotransmitters to encourage tissue growth. The required protein synthesis for muscle growth is influenced by testosterone’s interaction with nuclear receptors in DNA. Along with growth hormone, it can aid in the ability of exercise to build lean muscle mass and increase strength. Flexibility is also improved.

  • Body Fat Reduction

As mentioned above in the information about heart health, low levels of testosterone can affect the body’s metabolic functions, increasing belly fat and waistline circumference. Treatment for Low T will aid in turning on the body’s fat burning mechanism for weight loss and increased energy. This will also help with maintaining lower levels of blood sugar, especially important since many older men with diabetes have also been found to have Low T.

  • Bone Health

Low levels of testosterone have been shown to increase the risk of osteoporosis, putting bones in danger of fracture in later years of life. Testosterone therapy will help increase bone density, strengthen the structural integrity of the skeletal system while also reducing joint pains and stiffness.

These are some of the most welcome testosterone injections benefits that can be expected when a blood test has shown that Low T is present in the body.

Physical benefits of testosterone injections:

Bursting energy Greater stamina Increased endurance Less feelings of tiredness, lethargy or fatigue
Faster metabolism Longer exercise capacity Faster recovery time from physical activity Weight loss (especially fat loss around the abdomen)
Increased lean muscle mass Stronger skin elasticity Less noticeable facial wrinkles and/or crow’s feet around the eyes Less saggy and/or haggard looking skin
Better sleep at night Less balding Lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels Less risk for coronary heart issues (heart attack and/or stroke)
A stronger immune system Stronger bone mineral density Less risk for developing osteoporosis Less bone fractures

Mental benefits from testosterone injections:

Better concentration Less feelings of disorientation Better ability to focus Better memory (long and short term)
Less apathy Less forgetfulness The slowing of the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease Less mental fogginess

Emotional benefits of testosterone injections:

Less mild depression Less anger outbursts and feeling of agitation Less anxiety
The ability to handle stress better Overall better emotional stability Lower tension

Sexual benefits from testosterone injections:

Help with erectile dysfunction Longer orgasms Stronger erections Minimized menopausal symptoms for women (hot flashes and night sweats)
A stronger sexual drive A stronger sexual libido Less symptoms from “male menopause” Less vaginal dryness

The benefits of testosterone injections for females and the benefits of testosterone injections for males are very real. Both genders need the right amount of testosterone in their systems for optimal health and when that level dips, symptoms can occur that can squash quality of life. However, testosterone injections benefits can turn all that around and make a person look and feel more youthful and alive.
