The Biggest Scientific Trial on Testosterone has Just Begun.

The National Institute on Aging is financing a huge, 6-year, $45 million clinical trial. It’s now underway and is taking place at 12 designated study sites around the U.S.1

Researchers will be taking at look at how low testosterone may contribute to a number of problems affecting older men, including decreased ability to walk, loss of muscle mass and strength, decreased vitality, decreased sexual function, impaired cognition, cardiovascular disease, and anemia. In a nutshell, they’ll be boosting the testosterone levels of 800 men aged 65 and older to see if their health improves.
