BHRT & Possible Sexual Performance Benefits for Men
For men with a hormone imbalance, their sexual performance and health may be affected. While this is typically related to a natural decline in testosterone that begins around age 40, men of any age can be impacted. When testosterone levels become optimized through hormone replacement therapy, male patients have reported benefits that include enhanced sexual performance and increased sexual desire.*
The Connection Between Men’s Sexual Health & Hormones
Testosterone plays an active role in a man’s sex life. This essential hormone affects nearly every aspect of men’s sexual desire and performance. When testosterone levels decrease with age or due to other health issues, men often notice the impact in the form of reduced sexual performance and overall desire.
Signs & Symptoms You May Benefit from Hormone Replacement Therapy
Decreased testosterone levels in men, often referred to as “low T,” is a common issue that can affect men of any age. Symptoms of a hormone imbalance in men can often impact their libido. Changes in libido may feel like a decreased desire to have sex and lackluster performance. Left unresolved, testosterone imbalances can have far-reaching effects on a man’s overall health and relationships.
How Hormone Pellets May Help with Sexual Performance in Men
One of the best ways a man can determine if they are suffering from low testosterone is by getting their hormone levels checked by a Biote Certified Provider. These providers are trained to help identify and address testosterone concerns in men and can help offer a path to optimization utilizing the Biote Method.

BHRT & Possible Benefits for Muscle Strength in Men
As men age, they often experience muscle loss in their arms and legs, leading to reduced overall strength and performance in the gym. This loss in muscle is often associated with a natural decline in testosterone, which is common in men aged 40 and older. Optimizing testosterone may help maintain muscle mass and improve strength.*
The Connection Between Muscles & Hormones
Hormones play a vital role in the development and maintenance of muscles in men. One of the key hormones, testosterone, can decline with age or be impacted due to other health concerns. Consistently low testosterone over time has been linked to a decline in muscle mass and strength, which can have far-reaching impacts on a man’s confidence and performance both inside and outside of the gym.
Signs & Symptoms Your Muscle Loss May be Hormone Related
Most men increase muscle mass and strength until sometime around the age of 30. As they age, hormones like testosterone can begin to decline, and the muscles that depend on these hormones are affected. Signs of a hormone imbalance can include muscle loss in men and a decrease in overall strength. If muscle strength declines even after continued resistance training, a hormone imbalance could be a contributing factor.
How Hormone Pellets May Help with Muscle Loss in Men
Checking your hormone levels with a Biote Certified Provider can help you gain valuable insights on current testosterone levels. Patients who are a candidate for hormone optimization can take advantage of bioidentical testosterone pellets using a customized method based on their specific health concerns, including a loss in muscle strength.
