HOW TESTOSTERONE THERAPY IS IMPROVING WOMEN'S HEALTH
Most often think of testosterone and consider it the "male hormone", however it is a primary sex hormone in women as well.
Testosterone plays a key role in:
Bone & Muscle Health: Lower levels can contribute to osteoporosis, brittle bones, and can leave some more prone to injuries. Testosterone therapy can help increase bone strength and development, muscle mass, and strength. Studies have even shown an increase in lean muscle mass and have helped some women lose stubborn body fat and improved their body mass index (BMI)!
Concentration & Energy: Feeling drained? Testosterone can significantly improve energy levels and overall well-being. Some women even say they notice a substantial increase in mental clarity and focus after testosterone therapy!
Inflammation: Optimized testosterone levels can help to reduce inflammation, joint and back pain, and help reduce the risk of certain cancers.
Libido: Testosterone increases sex drive and helps stimulate tissue which can help women achieve better sexual response. Hormone imbalance can take place during pre-menopause, a hysterectomy, and reduced ovary production. Low testosterone levels can lead to lower or even loss of libido.

The excellent efficacy of subcutaneous pellet therapy especially with regards to the use of testosterone became very evident compared to the other routes of delivery.
