Testosterone Can Improve Women’s Health

June 29, 2012

When it comes to discussing testosterone, most people think it’s just a male hormone, but this is not true.
In fact, women produce approximately 250 micrograms of testosterone daily. While the male production is 20-30 times higher, testosterone is nearly as important to women as it is to men.

The emotional and physical signs of a testosterone deficiency can appear as the following:

Nervous, irritable behavior

Excessive anxiety

Depression the whole day long

Poor memory or concentration

Pale face

Dry eyes

Poor or reduced muscle volume, tone or strength

Cellulite on the thighs

Varicose veins

Testosterone performs important roles in women, such as:


Improvement of mood

Reduction of depression and anxiety

Improvement of bone density

Improvement of muscle size and strength

Improved sex drive

Improvement in skin

It is important to check your hormone levels through blood or saliva samples. It is likely long-term deficiency of testosterone in women can predispose us to depression, anxiety disorders, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and atherosclerosis.
