Testosterone is the hormone responsible for male physical attributes. This includes reproductive attributes along with the growth of body hair, muscle, and bone. It is also an essential part of the overall health and well-being of adult men due to its effect on motivation, mood, and cognition. Testosterone levels can decrease as men age, resulting in a variety of adverse symptoms.
