After approximately age 35, many men start noticing some serious changes in their lives. Their bodies don’t seem to be keeping up with the things they always enjoyed. Things like hair loss, decrease in muscle mass and bone density, fatigue, lack of libido and more. Many times, we’ll hear “Oh, that’s just what happens when you get older.” These symptoms seem to be simply expected after a certain age and many resign themselves to a dull life in which they can no longer enjoy the things they once loved.
