One of the most common complaints of aging men is the decline in their sexual performance. Men’s sexual peak usually occurs at around the age of 18. For most, it’s usually downhill from there – for some, significant declines in sexual performance can occur as early as in their late 20s. Aging is usually correlated with a longer time to achieve full erection, a less firm erection, lower libido or sex drive, a decline in sexual stamina, inadequate sensation, and unsatisfactory ejaculation.
Aging and Decline in Testosterone Level
As men age, their production of DHEA, as well as testosterone and other androgens or sex hormones decline. It’s been estimated that for every year over the age of forty, men’s testosterone level drops by one percent. About twenty percent of men in their sixties and fifty percent of men in their eighties have significantly reduced testosterone levels.
As testosterone is a key hormone in men’s sexual functions, aging-related decline in testosterone levels has a negative impact on men’s sexual performance.
The Estrogen Connection
An important determinant of male hormonal health is the testosterone/estrogen balance (T/E). Healthy male physiology depends on a high T:E ratio. Although testosterone is the “male hormone,” men naturally produce small amounts of estrogen from testosterone.
With aging, the T:E ratio drops, often dramatically. An enzyme called “aromatase,” especially prevalent in fat cells, converts testosterone to estrogen. Since most men lose muscle and gain fat as they age, aromatase activity increases, reducing testosterone even as it increases estrogen.
We use individually designed doses of Testosterone, DHEA and various Nutritional Supplements to restore Normal Physiological levels of Testosterone, DHEA and healthy ratio of Testosterone/Estrogens in the male body. It helps a lot to restore libido, sexual performance, mood and energy level.
