Testosterone is known to be the hormone for men, but women benefit greatly from testosterone just as much as men. When our levels of testosterone begin to drop we experience low energy levels, mood swings, we gain fat in our middle sections and around our internal organs, and then our sex drive diminishes or for some goes away. By having optimal testosterone levels, we can a decrease in body fat, increase in muscle size and strength, and it also lowers blood pressure and improves LDL and HDL cholesterol. Finally, we experience higher energy levels, sense of well-being, great libido, improved bone density. Women don’t realize testosterone makes their skin smooth and soft. A woman’s dose is much lower than a man would take as women don’t require as much.
