Does Over-the-Counter Testosterone Boosters Work?
You may have done your research regarding the good effects of testosterone and you may have already started imagining yourself having it. You may want to have a muscular built and experience youthful virility for eternity. The good effects of testosterone are something that most men would want to have all throughout their lifetime.
Science gave us awesome gifts. It gave us comfort, convenience, security, better health and appearance among others. It gave us the best possibility that we can do with the resources that we have. It allows us to have knowledge on what causes what and therefore we know how to get what.
We know that testosterone is a hormone produced by our glands. A region in your brain named hypothalamus tells your pituitary gland how much hormone it needs to produce. It means that, it is your pituitary gland that dictates how much testosterone should be produced from your gonads and adrenal gland. So, the 2 sources of testosterone are your adrenal gland and gonads which is an ovary for women and testicles for men.
Hypogonadism is a condition where there is not enough testosterone. This means that the gonads were not able to produce enough testosterone needed and as a result, the desire for sex, muscular growth and development are not properly achieved. With the existence of a condition comes resolution.
It is quite simple, you have less testosterone than what you need, so, you have to add more, to have enough. There are two ways to increase testosterone. You can directly increase it by taking it or you can tell the one producing it, which is your pituitary gland, to simply produce more.
This is where testosterone booster, enhancer or however you might call it, comes into play. It is simply to increase testosterone. It is to correct those that have less, so they will have enough.
Those that need it though, those that suffer from Hypogonadism are, not the only ones that wants it. There are a lot of people, especially men, that were not diagnosed of Hypogonadism which means that their body is not producing less testosterone than it should, wants to have additional or to “boost” their testosterone levels.
Over-the-counter testosterone boosters that have been certified by the Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) do work. How effectively it will work for you, however, will be different on how it will be for anyone else. So, just a precaution, always check with your doctor and make sure that the “booster” are approved by legit evaluators, especially by the CDER.
