Testosterone

Testosterone (17ß-hydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one) is an anabolic steroid synthesized primarily by Leydig cells in the testes of male, the ovary of female, and adrenal glands of both sexes[1]. It is synthesized from cholesterol, androstenediol, Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), progesterone, and pregnenolone acting as some of the intermediate substrates. Testosterone level in male increase 10 to 20-fold during puberty, driving the physiological changes associated with male puberty. It also exerts a powerful, wide-ranging influence over emotional well-being, sexual function, muscle mass and strength, energy, cardiovascular health, bone integrity, and cognitive ability throughout a man’s entire life. In the blood only 1 to 15% of testosterone is in its unbound or biologically active form. The remaining testosterone is bound to serum proteins.
