Why Testosterone and HGH are So Important to Men’s Health
Men all around West Palm Beach are looking and feeling younger, thanks to the many benefits of hormone therapy.
When you think of hormones and hormone imbalances, your first thought is probably of women and menopause. But men have to deal with the many problems of age-related hormone decline too.
The two most important hormones related to strength, vitality, and overall well-being in men are testosterone and human growth hormone, or HGH. However, as important as these hormones are, they both build steadily as a boy grows to manhood, and then both drop precipitously once a man gets older than 30.
Let’s take a closer look at both of these vital hormones for men, their benefits, what happens to your health when you start to lose them, and how hormone therapy can help.
Men as well as women can suffer from hormone imbalances. But these conditions can be safely and effectively treated with hormone replacement therapy for men.
Testosterone and Men’s Health
Men seeking hormone therapy in West Palm Beach need to know that testosterone is the most important male hormone or androgen. Testosterone production starts in the womb. In fact, this early release of testosterone transforms the developing fetus into a male.
From birth to adolescence, testosterone production in males continues to increase. It is responsible for all the processes that change a boy into a man, such as muscle growth, deepening voice, body hair, and sexual maturity.
Even after puberty, testosterone plays a vital role in a man’s health, impacting everything from fertility to strength and sexual health. But as crucial as testosterone is for men, unfortunately, testosterone levels drop after age 20.
By the time a man is over 35, he may likely be experiencing low testosterone symptoms and already be a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy.

When it comes to hormone replacement therapy for men in West Palm Beach, the benefits of testosterone therapy can never be understated. For men who have been diagnosed with age-related testosterone loss, testosterone replacement can:

HGH and Men’s Health
Second only to testosterone, one of the most important hormones for men is the human growth hormone or HGH. Like testosterone, HGH is vital to regulating and stimulating all processes that help a boy child develop into a healthy male adult of full stature.
And also, like testosterone, a male’s HGH level peaks soon after the teen years and then start a steady decline. This loss of HGH can cause issues in and of itself, but it also can add to or exacerbate the symptoms of low testosterone, such as:
- Sexual health issues.
- Weight gain.
- Loss of lean muscle.
- Chronic fatigue.
- Increased anxiety and depression.
- Decreased bone loss.
- Joint pain
However, men in and around West Palm Beach can have all of these symptoms, and they are more alleviated when HGH injections are prescribed as part of their hormone therapy program for men.
Growth Hormone Therapy for Men
HGH injections are given to treat men suffering from age-related HGH decline. HGH is only available with a doctor’s prescription and is only given via injection.
Any product claiming to be HGH or containing HGH that you can purchase online or anywhere without a prescription or available in pill, powder, or any other form is not genuine HGH. Such products should be avoided.
On the other hand, many clinical studies have proven genuine HGH injections to provide vast improvements for men suffering from age-related growth hormone deficiency.
For example, a 2009 study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that prolonged use of growth hormone therapy significantly increased muscle strength and energy in HGH-deficient adults.
Concluding, “Ten years of HGH replacement therapy increased muscle strength and energy during the first half of the study and thereafter partly protected against the normal age-related decline in muscle strength and neuromuscular function, resulting in approximately normalized muscle strength after ten years.”
Are Testosterone and HGH Ever Given Together?
As you can see from the above sections, many of the symptoms of low testosterone and age-related GHD in men overlap. So, it should be no surprise that if you are low in one of these critical hormones, you are probably below normal in both.
It should, therefore, also come as no surprise that these two hormone replacement therapies are often given together. In fact, we have found this “two-pronged approach” to hormone replacement therapy for men to be quite effective for our West Palm Beach patients.
Testosterone and HGH are what is known as “synergistic,” which means that the benefits of one enhance the other. Several studies have found that when given together, patients see greater improvements in strength, vitality, and sexual performance than when either hormone therapy is given alone.
