What Does Testosterone Do?
Testosterone is a hormone produced within the body and it regulates a wide range of functions within the male body. These functions include fat distribution, body hair growth, building and maintaining muscle mass and strength, producing red blood cells and sperm, as well as regulating libido (sex drive). Testosterone also tells your body when to begin growing throughout various points in your life. With healthy levels of this hormone, the male body is active and healthy. Most men produce testosterone continually throughout their lives.
