Testosterone Therapy and Healthy Body Composition
Testosterone Therapy is a leading anti-aging therapy for both men and women looking to optimize their health, age, and quality of life. With over half of the population either obese or overweight, researchers are constantly looking for new ways to address an epidemic that is making the population fat and tired, but also feeding diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, and Type II Diabetes. There are strong links between testosterone therapy and healthy body composition.
Studys Show Strong Evidence Linking Testosterone Therapy Improves Body Composition and Glucose Metabolism
The European Journal of Endocrinology published results of a study that revealed strong evidence that testosterone, which plays a role in regulating body composition in healthy individuals, may improve body composition and glucose metabolism in men.
The study, which included 59 trials with more than 5,100 male patients (with an average age of 62 years), revealed strong evidence that testosterone supplementation may improve body composition and glucose metabolism in older men. Specifically, the study showed a connection between testosterone therapy and male metabolic function, associated with a “significant reduction in fat with an increase of lean mass a well as with a reduction of fasting glycaemia [blood glucose levels] and insulin resistance” (Corona et al., 2016).
Testosterone plays an important role in in regulating healthy body composition. This isn’t the first study to show the benefits of testosterone therapy in weight management.
Finding similar results as those in the study in the European Journal of Endocrinology, other researchers have concluded that, “while there was no change in body weight, testosterone treatment produced a reduction in total body fat of 3 kilograms (more than six pounds) while increasing muscle mass by the same amount” (Goldbaum). What this means of course is that testosterone therapy regulates a healthy body composition, decreasing fat and increasing muscle, optimizing the body’s health, wellness, and ability to age well.
