Beginning around age 30, most men begin to experience a gradual decline in testosterone. This decline portends a series of symptoms that results in losing the edge most men desire – both physically and psychologically. Symptoms of declining testosterone levels include:
- Lack of energy
- Loss of Stamina and Performance
- Increased Body Fat (Particularly Upper Body and Waist)
- Declining Muscle Mass and Strength
- Declining Libido
- Weak Erections and Impotence
- Loss of Facial and Body Hair
- Breast Development
Many men mistakenly believe that these declines are an inevitable part of aging, and as part of the increased medicalization of aging, doctors prescribe medications to treat the symptoms – anti-depressants, erectile aids, weight-loss pills, and more. Testosterone replacement therapy is an effective option to restoring the testosterone to normal, healthy levels, countering these effects and restoring energy and vitality.
The Envigor8 Program
Envigor8 helps men with declining testosterone through affordable testosterone optimization. What does optimization mean? To understand that, it is important to understand how normal ranges are identified.
What is “Normal”?
Depending upon the laboratory, a typical normal range for Total Testosterone is 280ng/dl to 1100ng/dl. This is a wide range, and it establishes normal based on a large sampling of tested men. But using this scale, the difference between a man with normal levels of 300 and a man with low levels of 270 is miniscule, while the difference felt in a man who is normal at 300 versus a man who is also normal at 700 is significant! Envigor8 uses the laboratory work to set a baseline, and then treats based on a combination of the laboratory results and your symptoms. Our goal is to optimize your testosterone levels within therapeutic ranges – always staying within healthy parameters, while addressing the symptoms of low energy, increased fat, lost muscle, mild depression, and lack of sexual drive and performance.
What about Estrogen?
Both men and women have and need estrogen.
As men age, they tend to make increasing levels of estrogen with decreased production of testosterone. Estrogen can be made in the liver, muscle and brain, as well as the fat cells. This is actually where much of the concern lies. As obesity rates go up in this country and around the world, the production of estrogen will also increase from the fat cells. This is a bad combination of decreasing testosterone and increasing estrogen.
Diabetics tend to have higher rates of estrogen, which may correlate to a degree with their higher blood sugar levels. Too much estrogen may correlate with diabetes and heart attacks. Prostate cancer continues to be one of the most frequently diagnosed and one of the most common causes of death in men. Evidence is now pointing to estrogens playing a significant role in the etiology of prostate cancer. For years, testosterone has been blamed as the cause of prostate cancer, but a shift in thinking is pointing to an imbalance of the estrogens in the body being very important in preventing or causing prostate cancer.
Envigor8 tests and monitors Estradiol. If you are aromatizing too much testosterone into estrogen, Envigor8 will address this with either supplements or a prescription estrogen blocker to keep your balance of estrogen and testosterone at optimal levels.
Will testosterone stop your natural production?
Introducing testosterone to your system will affect the feedback loop that can affect your natural production of testosterone. If you are going to start a testosterone replacement program, many do not address this concern. Envigor8 protocol includes the use of HcG to stimulate your gonads and maintain your natural production.
