What Is Hormone Therapy?
How do I find out if I have a testosterone / HGH deficiency?

Why replace hormones?
By age 25, men as well as women start to lose anywhere from 2 – 3 percent of many hormones year by year. By the time you reach the age of 50, your hormone production has decreased by half or more.
Why are adequate hormone levels important?

What is Andropause?
Andropause is often called the "male menopause." According to a recent Work Health Study, the male hormone, testosterone, drops about 10% every decade starting around age 25. Men between the ages of 35 and 55 start experiencing symptoms which can be reduced or eliminated when treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy.
What is Human Growth Hormone (HGH)?
HGH is an endocrine hormone that is produced by the anterior portion of the pituitary gland. It is made up of 191 amino acids. Production of growth hormone decreases with age and by 40, growth hormone levels are only 40% of what they were at age 20.
