Male hormone imbalance may not be something you think about every day. However, considerable loss of testosterone generally occurs in men over 50 years old. Testosterone is classified a steroid hormone in the Androgen group. The decline of testosterone is known as Andropause, sometimes referred to as the male version of Menopause. Beginning at 30, a man’s body makes less and less testosterone and around 40-55 the levels drop dramatically. Natural Hormone Pellets may be the answer to restore your vigor during middle-age. No matter what your state in life, whether you are young or older, the balance of hormones is essential to your everyday living.
