Testosterone's Impact on Lifespan

Testosterone plays a crucial role in various aspects of men's health and well-being. New research has demonstrated that testosterone plays a role in men’s longevity and heart health.

A scientific analysis* just published concluded that men with low testosterone were at an increased risk of all-cause mortality, namely heart disease.  This article reviewed 20 studies over the last 10 years and assessed the data with a powerful conclusion. Men with a baseline testosterone less than 213 ng/dL had an increased risk of death compared to men with normal or high testosterone levels who did not. 

For men seeking to optimize their vitality, heart health, and overall quality of life, testosterone supplementation offers several compelling benefits.

Overall, for men looking to optimize their physical, mental, and sexual health, and improve their cardiovascular health can consider testosterone supplementation under the guidance of a trained healthcare professional. This is a service we feel is essential to offer our male patients.
