Testosterone And Manhood
By Pieternel Van Giersbergen
When I was asked to write about testosterone and manhood, I started to think of the different ages and the influence of testosterone. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for the development of manhood after the child reaches puberty. This influx of hormones has a great psychological influence, essentially turning boys in men. Muscle mass and strength increases, the sex drive develops, the voice deepens, and the man is endowed with the capacity to reproduce.
All these varied changes are driven by the hormone testosterone. It's a deep and complex development that puts considerable stress upon teenagers. Once the change has taken place, a boy has become a man, and has hopefully adjusted well to these changes. During this tumultuous period parental involvement is greatly needed, as the boy needs positive role models, particularly from a devoted father who offers kind, active guidance every step of the way.
The next phase in a man's life, generally speaking, is that in which he takes up a livelihood and begins family life as a husband and father. Till the age of about 40, most men have high enough testosterone levels to feel no physical decline in their manhood. But after 45 a decrease in testosterone becomes noticeable. This decrease is accompanied by an increase in estrogen, which causes such specific symptoms as hair loss, baldness, decrease of libido, more fat tissue, diminished muscle mass and strength, skin deterioration, and night-time bathroom visits.
These are all undesirable effects. And men with a sedentary lifestyle often experience these symptoms earlier than men who are more physically active.
Beside applying Prosperon, a natural hormone cream, healthy diet and more physical exercise and keeping a healthy weight are the most important things you can do. Being happy and enjoy a good relationship are a plus. Not only for your testosterone levels but specifically for men's general health. Prosperon adds 6- 12 mg progesterone. Progesterone is a precursor in men for the hormone testosterone. By applying 6-12 mg progesterone you increase the testosterone level in men. It is that simple. If you do not apply more then the 6- 12 mg there are NO Side Effects. Only beneficial anti aging effects. Less boldness, more toning of the muscles and skin, increased libido, more manly feeling, less difficulties which aging
