The world’s leading men’s health brand is launching a campaign called The Testosterone Test, which aims to combat what it calls “the dangerous stigma around testosterone and the dangerous effect it has on male health”.
According to a press release from the company, the campaign “tackles the myth that testosterone is bad for you, that it is a steroid, that you can’t take it and that it makes you sick.”
“Testosterone has been around for a long time, but the public is not necessarily aware of its role in male health,” the release continues.
“What we hope to highlight is that testosterone helps protect against cardiovascular disease, and that men can use this hormone to live a healthy life.”
For men with lower testosterone levels, the test could prove particularly helpful, as the company warns that “in some cases testosterone may actually be helpful”.
As you’re starting a family, you’re most likely to be diagnosed with low testosterone and that can lead to infertility.
According the release, “in a small number of cases, testosterone can actually help lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.”
But it’s not just men who may benefit from a testosterone boost, the company says, “It can also reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder”.
If you’re wondering if your doctor is on board with The Testo Test, the brand also offers a free pill test to find out if your testosterone level is normal.
