Everyone knows that testosterone is the “male” hormone. It plays a role in sex drive, sperm production, fat distribution, red cell production, and maintenance of muscle strength and mass, and it’s associated with overall health and well-being in men. What many people don’t realize is that it’s important for women, too!
