Human body consists of different organs. These different organs need different types of hormones secreted by glands to function properly. Hormones are chemical messengers. Testosterone, estrogen, progestin and protein polypeptide hormones are some of the types of hormones. Low testosterone and DiHydroTestosterone (DHT) levels affect mood, energy, sexual function and physical health. In addition, it weakens the inner defense mechanism against the pressure of stress.
