We are experiencing a testosterone epidemic, in which testosterone levels have declined 30% over the past 30 years. Men of all ages are struggling with the symptoms of plummeting testosterone levels.
Testosterone is a vitally important hormone that helps you maintain your energy level, mental focus and concentration, and productivity. It helps you build muscle and burn fat.
