Testosterone is an often-misunderstood hormone. It is commonly - and inaccurately - referred to as the “male sex hormone”. It’s also associated with aggression, volatility, and the classic “macho man” persona - and wrongly so, according to experts. In fact, this misconception of testosterone has led to unfair stereotyping, and even controversial new regulations in sports. The reality is that, while testosterone is the main hormone responsible for the development of male traits, it plays a host of other crucial roles for both men and women. What’s more, low testosterone is a much more common issue than excess testosterone. In fact, it simply happens naturally as we age.
Treating low testosterone levels can be complicated, and even risky at times. Luckily, red light therapy is a promising way to boost testosterone naturally, safely, and with virtually no side effects. Before we get into how red light therapy can help, let’s take a look at why testosterone is so important.
