Think women are the only ones who go through menopause? Think again. Andropause is a gradual decrease in hormone production in men. But unlike menopause, men experience their symptoms slowly, over decades. And the effects can linger.
While previous generations shrugged off andropause as an inevitable part of aging of the male anatomy, recent estimates suggest that 40% of men experience symptoms of andropause as early as their 40s. Lethargy, depression, loss of sex drive and bone density are all symptoms of andropause, and with a generation of baby-boomers flirting with 60, men want relief.
Recently, Human Growth Hormone (HGH) releasers have gained attention in medical circles and the media for their ability to treat symptoms of aging. HGH releasers encourage the body to produce growth hormone without drugs or synthetic injections, with benefits like fewer wrinkles, evened skin tone and boosted energy.
Does this mean that HGH releasers can treat andropause?
First, let’s define andropause as a medical condition, of a gradual decrease in production of testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone. Symptoms include:
- mood swings
- loss of bone density
- decrease in lean muscle
- increased fat storage
- reduced sex drive
- erectile dysfunction
Look familiar? Symptoms of andropause are common as men age, but it’s only recently that they’ve gained medical attention as a legitimate condition that men face.
Though the symptoms are common, andropause is influenced by lifestyle factors, including:
- excessive alcohol consumption
- poor diet
- lack of exercise
- drug use
- psychological problems
How does one diagnose andropause? Your doctor can perform blood tests to measure your testosterone levels, and should conduct a medical and psychological assessment as well. Your doctor should also perform a diagnostic medical test, to gauge if the symptoms are related to other conditions or medications.
Some medical experts contend that measuring free active testosterone (FAT) levels is a more effective method to measure hormone production than free testosterone. FAT divides the total plasma testosterone level by that of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG affects total testosterone before it can permeate the cells to properly function.
You should also be aware that andropause is more than just a decrease in hormone production. Stress and psychiatric problems might account for andropause symptoms in at least some men, and heightened levels of stress can overlap with loss of testosterone to make symptoms worse.
And while the search for a definition for andropause continues, a solution may already exist.
HGH releasers are natural products, of amino acids, botanicals and nutrients like panax ginseng and soy phosphate complex, many of which that have been used since ancient times to stimulate the sex drive and increase feelings of well-being.
Are these ingredients you’ll find in a lab? No. But it’s only with recent breakthroughs in medical research that scientists have paired them with amino acids like arginine and glutamine. And it’s in very recent times that researchers have noticed that HGH supplements treat the same symptoms as those in men with andropause, with benefits that may include:
- increased physical stamina
- more lean muscle mass
- greater bone density
- rejuvenated sex drive
- feelings of well-being
In short, HGH releasers like GenF20 Plus System combine ancient understanding of the human anatomy with amino acids and nutrients to encourage the pituitary gland to produce growth hormone and turn back the mental and biological clock, treating symptoms of andropause and raising quality of life.
