Most of us know about testosterone, for those who don’t, it is a basic hormone in human body which is there to optimize the number of required after traits mostly in men. Testosterone has nothing to do with the general behavior of a person, many people out there think that the people with more testosterone level are more aggressive in nature, have anger issues, create violence and are even involved in general acts of douche-baggery.

Testosterone does not only cater with only the sex organs and metabolism but also with the bone loss and other bodily functions which are very essential for everyday performance
Most of the people suffering with low testosterone level are seen to use medicines and steroids to tackle the problem but that in return causes more problems in some cases. Having a low testosterone level is not a medical problem or any disability; it has more to do with your own routine. The patterns of daily exercise, sleeping habits, stress and obesity are seen to affect hormone levels of testosterone.
A person’s blood contains two types of testosterone. One type is the bonded testosterone and the other is free testosterone. Bonded testosterone join to molecules in the body and is mostly ineffective.
