Testosterone is the male anabolic hormone par excellence. It brings about masculinity in those who take it orally or in injection form. However, those undergoing testosterone therapy have a higher risk of death from heart attack and stroke.

Testosterone Heart Risk is for Real

Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy is big business in the United States. For those with low T-levels it has often been prescribed by physicians. As a cure for flagging sexual desire and bone loss, as well as loss of lean muscle mass, it is the standard treatment recommended by medical doctors. 

However, when you consider the cardiovascular risks associated with artificial repletion of this powerful male hormone, you might think twice before acting on expert advice. After research regarding the effects of testosterone therapy on thousands of men, it was found that there was a 30% increased chance of coronary disease, strokes, sleep apnea and atherosclerosis. Testosterone is really boosting heart risks. It seems the rejuvenating and energizing influence comes with a downside after all. 

More studies need to be done before these results can be finalized. However, it is definite that playing around with hormones can wreak havoc with the body’s biochemical balance. Sexual virility, boundless energy and superhuman strength do not come without a cost. And that is often seen in bodybuilders who take the hormone to aid their workout capacity. The body has its own wisdom. And when you supplement it with man-made patches, gels and injections, you are disturbing the fine-tuned system that is the human body. 

Testosterone may also cause elevated blood pressure. It is a better idea to naturally increase your T-levels via diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. To rely on medical shortcuts is at best a risky venture and at worst it can prove fatal.
