Androgens are actually a collection of hormones. The most active and dominant androgen is testosterone. Then there are other androgen hormones that support the function of testosterone. It’s just that the amount is far less than testosterone. You can use muscle nation to increase your testosterone levels.
Men who have entered puberty will experience physical changes. For example, growing a mustache and beard, upper chest hair, legs and thighs, and pubic. All of this is thanks to androgens.

Men may experience androgen deficiency, but this condition generally occurs gradually and not suddenly. In contrast to menopause in women, where hormone deficiencies occur suddenly.
When androgen deficiency, especially testosterone, men can experience erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, so it is difficult to concentrate and depression. The condition when men are deficient in androgens is called hypogonadism. This condition can be overcome if the cause is clearly known.
