Testosterone is the primary androgenic hormone. Testosterone and its 5ÃŽÂ±-reduced metabolite dihydrotestosterone (DHT) activate the intracellular androgen receptor and modulate gene transcription. Testosterone is produced by the interstitial (Leydig) cells of the testes and the adrenal glands in males and by the ovary and adrenal glands in females.
Testosterone is responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. Secondary sex characteristics include growth and maturation of the prostate, seminal vesicles, penis and scrotum; male hair distribution, deepening of the voice, changes in fat distribution and muscle mass.
AndroForte® 5 contains the active ingredient testosterone. This form of testosterone is identical to the testosterone produced bythe testes of men and the ovaries of women. Testosterone plays an important role in physical and sexual development, sexual arousal,sexual response, libido, maintenance of bone, energy levels andwell-being in men and women.
When men suffer from a deficiency of testosterone one or more of these areas may be affected and AndroForte® 5 provides testosterone to address this deficiency. The skin readily absorbs testosterone and AndroForte® 5 is a simple and effective means of getting testosterone into the bloodstream.
