Testosterone: Male hormone synonymous with virility
Testosterone is a steroid hormone, which defines the masculine traits in men. It is the hormone, which is associated with muscular strength, aggressiveness, libido and fertility.
As men begin aging, bioavailable testosterone levels decrease while their estrogen levels increase. This process gradually occurs in their thirties so that a decade later, as many as 5% begin to experience lower testosterone as of 40 years of age , up to 50% by the time they reach 70 years of age. Elevated estrogen levels not only affect their muscle mass and sexuality, but provoke fat accumulation around the waistline.
