What is testosterone?
Testosterone is the main sex hormone that men have. It controls male physical features. The testicles make testosterone. Testosterone is the principle sex hormone responsible for the development of reproductive function in male vertebrates. Testosterone is one of the hormones referred to as androgens, which are also known of as anabolic steroids. In males, testosterone is required for the development of male sex organs such as increased penis and testes size. The hormone also promotes the development of sexual male characteristics during puberty such as voice deepening and the growth of armpit, chest and pubic hair. Testosterone plays an important role in maintaining sex drive, sperm production, muscle strength and bone mass. A healthy level of testosterone is also protective against bone disorders such as osteoporosis. As testosterone is required for so many bodily functions, it is considered to be a general promoter of overall health and well being and has been described by The National Institutes of Health as the most important hormone in men. Testosterone is also important for maintaining bone strength and lean muscle mass in women, as well as contributing to overall well-being and energy levels. Women have testosterone too, but in much smaller amount than in men.
