Is it aging, or is it andropause? Men can lose hormones as they age causing a wide range of symptoms that can be alleviated through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – BHRT for Men.
As men approach midlife, they can suffer from a decline in hormones known as andropause. Their body produces less testosterone, thyroid, and other vital hormones, leaving him noticing a decrease in sex drive and performance, lack of energy, irregular blood sugar, decreased muscle mass, inability to build muscle, loss of memory, and depression.
Many men dismiss these changes as unavoidable signs of getting older, but that is not the case. BHRT for men can significantly improve muscle strength, libido, and memory, as well as decreasing body fat and restoring a sense of well being. (Results do vary from individual to individual).
At Renewed Vitality we help men suffering from hormone decline. As men reach midlife their hormone levels decrease resulting in what is called andropause. At about 30 the average man begins to lose 1% to 3% of his testosterone per year. In conjunction to loss of testosterone, the glands produce less thyroid and other necessary hormones. By midlife a man may have noticed several of the symptoms of andropause such as weight gain and difficulty in taking weight off, difficulty sleeping, decrease in muscle mass, decreased sex drive and performance, irregular blood sugar, loss of memory, irritability, and depression.
Most men consider the changes that occur with aging as unavoidable, when the true cause is decreased hormones. Our Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Specialists adjust these hormone levels thus improving sex drive, memory, muscle strength, weight loss, and mood.

Low Sex Drive and Hormone Replacement Therapy
It is important for men and women to know that low sex drive is not a symptom of the relationship or of the emotions. It is a physical symptom of the body. Low sex drive occurs in both men and women and it seems to be striking at earlier and earlier ages. Low hormone production is the core of the problem. As we age hormones naturally tend to decline and the process can be accelerated by stress and carrying a heavy toxic load. Testosterone is essential for desire and arousal in both men and women. It also allows increased blood flow to the genitalia which improves sensitivity and responsiveness.
Renewed Vitality practitioners will use comprehensive laboratory blood tests to check your hormone levels. They will provide you with a treatment plan using the best bio-identical hormones and natural supplements. Your hormones will be closely monitored until you reach levels that are ideal for you and your naturally healthy sex drive is restored.
What Exactly Are Bioidentical Hormones?
People have heard a lot of unclear terminology about hormone replacement therapy. Some of those words are natural, synthetic, and bioidentical. People think that natural means good and synthetic means bad, and most of the time this is correct for your body. However, the important issue is if the hormone is 100% human bioidentical. The structure of Bioidentical Hormones is molecularly identical to those produced naturally in a person’s body. In regards to hormones, the source, whether synthetic or natural, is less important than producing a compound that exactly matches the body’s own hormones. With a bioidentical compound, the body is able to easily heal itself.
