for Healthy Age Management
Testosterone is a hormone produced primarily in the adrenal gland and helps maintain bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength, red blood cell production and sex drive. Testosterone levels reach their maximum during adolescence and early adulthood. After that they begin to decline about 1% per year after the age of 30.
These symptoms can be caused by a normal part of aging or due to underlying factors such as medication side effects, thyroid issues, excess alcohol and depression. Only a blood test can confidently diagnose you with low testosterone levels.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormone Replacement Therapy is manufactured in a heavily regulated pharmacy and is considered safe. Hormone Replacement Therapy uses testosterone, cortisol, melatonin, DHEA, and others for treating andropause.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a natural therapy using natural animal and plant-derived hormones having identical chemical and molecular structure to ones produced by the human body. They are designed specifically for each patient in a highly regulated special pharmacy and are only prescribed by your physician. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy also uses testosterone, cortisol, melatonin, DHEA, and others for treating andropause.
At The Youth Rx, we monitor hormone levels and provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy when levels are deficient.
Our licensed professionals use both of these options at The Youth Rx. After any hormone therapy program starts, hormone blood level and saliva tests are conducted at scheduled intervals to determine how the patient’s body is responding, and for safety and accuracy.
Human Growth Hormone
Human growth hormone (HGH) is an amino acid molecule made by the anterior pituitary gland at the base the brain. HGH is one of the main hormones of importance for maintaining healthy cellular performance.
Just like the testosterone hormone, natural levels of HGH start to decline continuely in your early adulthood (mid-late 20s), which leads to the normal aging process of your body. Increasing HGH with injection supplements slows down the aging process of your body internally and externally.
Benefits after several weeks of HGH therapy can include:
- Improved energy and indurance
- Better mood
- Decreased total body fat
- Improved healing time
- Decreased LDL (bad) cholesterol
- Increased lean muscle mass
The FDA licenses and oversees all companies that manufacture HGH for safety and quality assurance.
