Hormones have a powerful impact on health. For men, a hormone imbalance increases the accumulation of abdominal fat, a reduction in muscle mass along with a long list of other signs and symptoms.
Testosterone plays a key role in determining your overall health and wellbeing. Low testosterone is directly linked to many of the health problems affecting men. Testosterone keeps you young, it is more than just a sex hormone. There are testosterone receptor sites in cells throughout your body, most notably in the brain and heart.
Testosterone is critical for ongoing protein synthesis which builds muscle and strong bones. Testosterone boosts your metabolic rate to help keep you lean, it also helps control your blood sugar levels, regulates cholesterol production and maintains healthy immune function.
Your body also requires testosterone to maintain healthy heart function and brain activity.
An enzyme called aromatase is one of the most important factors controlling testosterone levels in men.
This enzyme is responsible for converting testosterone into estradiol, a potent estrogen. This then alters the healthy ratio of testosterone to estrogen.
Men who have excessive body fat, especially belly fat, are likely to have increased estradiol levels caused by higher aromatase activity, resulting in a dramatically increased estrogen to testosterone ratio.
