While most people assume that testosterone’s only link to the heart involves your love life, its connection is far more literal. Hormone health impacts cardiovascular health directly, with countless studies investigating what this means for men with low T.
Research has concluded that achieving a hormone balance not only leads to a healthier sex life, but a healthier heart as well. And there’s no better time than American Heart Month to learn more!
What Do Studies Show About Heart Health and Testosterone Levels?
Although early studies found a possible link between testosterone therapy and cardiovascular disease, more recent research in 2016 shows that no such link exists. The study’s participants who received testosterone replacement did not exhibit an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Another study even suggests that testosterone replacement can, in fact, lower the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke.
