Testosterone Is Important For Body Composition Control

Testosterone is an important hormone for controlling obesity. Low testosterone levels are linked to increased total body fat, abdominal fat deposition and reduced muscle mass— according to a literature review by British researchers. These changes in body composition are linked to energy imbalance, impaired blood sugar control, decreased insulin sensitivity and abnormal blood fats. Testosterone replacement therapy helps restore normal body composition and improves motivation, energy levels and vigor, which enable men to lead more active lifestyles.
