Testosterone is a total body hormone

It’s not just for those guys below the belt. It has effects everywhere. It regulates insulin levels, controls your mood, helps reduce body fat, regulates blood flow in your heart and the list goes on and on. If you ask most doctors where testosterone works in the body they would probably say the testes, penis and maybe the brain. But it’s the walls of the coronary arteries that have the most testosterone receptors, next is the brain, then bone, then muscle, and then fat. Testosterone has widespread effects throughout the body. Low T levels can wreak havoc not just “below the belt”.
