How’s Your T? Testosterone is a hormone primarily produced in men by the testicles and in smaller amounts by a woman’s ovaries. Yes that’s right, women produce testosterone as well!
Why is Testosterone important for women? For both men and women, testosterone plays a key role in the development and maintenance of muscle mass, strength, energy levels, and bone density. By the age of 40, these hormones have declined by over 40%. Women in particular, the maintenance of bone density and muscle mass is important, as both of these tend to deteriorate with age. Testosterone may also offer females some more subtle effects, like impacting mood and (here’s the big one) sexual desire. That’s right…the big “T” is linked to the big “O” for women as well as men.
