Testosterone FAQ

What is AndroPlus?

AndroPlus is a once-daily topical testosterone cream for men to raise their low testosterone into a healthy range.

What ingredients are in AndroPlus?

AndroPlus is a simple formulation of testosterone USP (United States Pharmacopoeia), and a carrier cream base.

Will this product help me lose weight?

AndroPlus is an excellent weight loss tool when combined with exercise and a healthy diet. When you’re overweight, your body actually sends extra signals to convert testosterone into estrogen. That means that when you’re overweight, it’s like your body is giving you birth control pills… every day!

Not good, if you’re a man.

When you use AndroPlus, not only are you increasing your testosterone levels to combat the extra estrogen in your body, you’ll actually have more energy and desire to exercise. You’ll actually look forward to working out all the time, because you’ll have so much energy to burn!

How long does one tube last?

Each tube contains 50 mL of 5% testosterone cream. At a standard starting dosage of 1mL per day, this means one tube will last approximately 50 days of daily use.

Is this a steroid?

Although technically a “steroid”, testosterone is the same hormone you naturally produce every day. Most bodybuilders actually prefer more dangerous “designer drugs” to help them bulk up.

And studies have shown that men with low testosterone are the ones that actually are more moody. With high testosterone you will feel calm, in control, and potent.

Are there any side effects?

The side effect profile of testosterone is quite small given the immense benefits of using it. So far, science has shown that a small percentage of men may develop polycthemia (a thickening of the blood), benign prostate hypertrophy, or water retention.

How much should I use?

Our standard starting dosage is 1 mL of cream (about the size of a green pea), which is 50 mg of testosterone per day.

When should I apply AndroPlus?

It’s best to apply AndroPlus in the morning, after a shower. Absorption is fast, under 30 minutes, so you can be on your way in a hurry.

How fast does TRT with AndroPlus take effect?

AndroPlus is absorbed in the skin within 30 minutes. Peak concentration with noticeable effects occurs within 2-3 hours. Users often report feeling positive effects within the first week of administration. Clinical studies show substantial quality of life improvements after approximately 5 weeks of regular administration.

What is HRT/TRT?

HRT, or Hormone Replacement Therapy, is the medical term for treating hormone deficiencies with exogenous (outside-the-body) hormones. Women often use H T when they reach menopause, supplementing with estrogen in order to combat the eff cts of their natural decline in production of estrogen. HRT is also done in me , where it is more specifically called Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). This has become increasingly common in men looking to feel better, improve their body, and get back their “edge”. That’s because testosterone is critical for men to feel strong and healthy. Because the body’s own production is often depressed by aging and environmental factors, men turn to TRT solutions such as AndroPlus, the simplest way to increase testosterone.

What is andropause?

Andropause, as it is sometimes called, is the male equivalent of menopause in women. However, there are a few key differences. Unlike in women, where the major issue is depressed estrogen production, in men the negative effects or andropause are caused by a decrease in testosterone production. This means feeling more fatigued, tired, and mentally clouded. It also means a steep dropoff in sex drive.

In addition, the onset of andropause is nothing like menopause. Menopause is often compared to dropping off a cliff, but andropause is more insidious. It is similar to the old fable of a frog in a pot of water being slowly heated. If he’s dropped in a boiling pot, he will jump out immediately. But if the frog is placed in cold water which is slowly heated, he will never jump out until it’s too late, and he’s cooked.

In a similar way, the decrease in natural testosterone production is a gradual slide. One of the reasons andropause is rarely discussed is that it’s effects are felt slowly, over time. This means that you won’t suddenly feel the negative effects of low testosterone, but over months and years you will notice yourself feeling:

  • More fat
  • More fatigued
  • Less youthful energy
  • Decreased cognition
  • Difficulty getting erectionsAs men feel these effects they can often feel a sense of purposelessness. Since testosterone is the key player in feeling “manly”, it’s incredibly important and medically recommended to maintain it at a high level throughout life. That way you can enjoy increased strength, improvement in mood, and more energy and clarity for your life.

How do I know if TRT is right for me?

If you have felt any of the following symptoms, you may suffer from low testosterone:

  • Erectile dysfunction (weak erections, fewer erections)
  • Low interest in sex
  • Depression and loss of motivation
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain, particularly around the waistThe symptoms of low testosterone are often confused with “normal aging”, but it’s important to note that low testosterone not only decreases quality of life, but can actually increase risk factors for many common diseases. When your body does not produce enough testosterone on its own, it is often necessary to turn to exogenous (outside the body) sources to keep proper balance. With AndroPlus, testosterone supplementation is easy and affordable. ** Is TRT the same as steroids? Taking steroids is a controversial issue, especially in the professional sporting arena.What most people don’t know is that athletes often take testosterone that puts them FAR above the top of the normal range for most men. This is incredibly unhealthy and leads to a lot of unwanted side effects that they must manage by taking a slew of other pills.By contrast, TRT with AndroPlus is focused on restoring your hormones back to a healthy range using a minimal effective dose. This means using just enough to restore testosterone to “good feeling” levels. For most men this means a serum testosterone level of 600-1000 ng/dL.Studies show that men in the high range of normal are consistently happier and healthier than men sitting in the low range.

Will I fail a drug test if I am being treated with AndroPlus?

No. AndroPlus has been scientifically formulated to raise your body’s testosterone to the natural levels necessary for healthy functioning. It cannot be used to elevate your free testosterone to superhuman levels which athletes are often drug-tested for.

Are there any side effects to using AndroPlus?

Most studies show a very small percentage of people feel some side effects of low-dosage hormone replacement therapy. These include mild fluid retention, acne/oily skin, mild increases in cholesterol and lipid panel, a dry cough, and vivid dreaming.

Does increased Testosterone lead to prostate cancer?

No. A 2003 study published in the International Journal of Cancer states, “No support was found for the hypothesis that high levels of circulating androgens within a physiologic range stimulate development and growth of prostate cancer.”

This was a meta-analysis, meaning the researchers comprehensively reviewed a great number of scientific studies to come to their conclusions. They found that, “no significant association between testosterone and risk was found in an analysis of data from 8 prospective studies with a total number of 817 cases and 2,107 controls.”

What this means is that there is almost no chance normal testosterone therapy will cause cancer.

Will taking testosterone decrease my ability to produce it naturally?

Many men stop taking testosterone as their levels stabilize, but for others it is a lifelong treatment plan.

Those who continue testosterone therapy enjoy the feelings of greater energy, youthfulness, and vitality that comes along with raising their testosterone levels.

Luckily, AndroPlus is a cost-effective and convenient solution to the rigours of aging.

What if my doctor says this is just the normal signs of aging?

While aging is normal, suffering from aging is not. Doctor’s have shown that supplementing with testosterone in aging men has produced significant quality of life enhancements. It is also very safe if done correctly, using low-dosage testosterone cream.

In addition, the modern environment has made it much more likely than in the past to have proper testosterone levels. Even if you exercise and eat healthily, the influence of inescapable environmental endotoxins are giving us low levels of poison every day. It’s not enough to kill you, but it is enough to disrupt your body’s natural hormone production, making it impossible to sustain naturally high levels of testosterone.

In fact, researchers uncovered the following:

“a significant secular trend in testosterone (total and free), SHBG and gonadotrophin levels was observed with lower levels in more recently born age-matched men.”


This means the later a man was born, the lower his levels of testosterone. The average levels dropped from 631 ng/dL to 397 ng/dL for men the same age who were born later.

A modern man has at least 37% less testosterone than his grandfather did at the same age.

The only way to account for such a drastic decrease in testosterone is environmental factors.

We are surrounded by lifestyles that sap testosterone and turn us into meek shadows of men.

Plastics leaching into food. Less sunlight and outdoor activity. Fractured, poor quality sleep. Excessive use of hormones in raising meat.

In the end, even if you rearrange your entire life to mimic an ancestral environment, there are still subtle, unavoidable poisons in the atmosphere, water, and food chain that slowly erode your ability to produce testosterone. Many of these chemicals (especially those from plastics), mimic estrogen in your body, which decreases your masculinity in every way.

You want to be the best man you can be. You want to take care of your family, and enjoy life as much as possible.

Restoring your testosterone can be the first step on that path.

How does testosterone help prevent disease?

Low testosterone not only affects your ability to enjoy life, but also greatly decreases your body’s resilience and ability to fight off disease.

Researchers in Germany studied 1,954 men ages 20-79 and found,

“Men with serum testosterone levels below 8.7 nmol/L (250 ng/dL) had a more than two-fold increased risk of mortality from all causes compared with those with higher serum testosterone levels, independent of age, WC (waist circumference), smoking habits, high-risk alcohol use, and physical activity.”


That means men with low testosterone are more than TWICE as likely to die from any cause. But more specifically, low testosterone has been found alongside many of the most common and dangerous causes of disease today:

“Decreased testosterone levels are associated with increased risks of osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus and mortality.”

Do I have to stay on TRT forever?

Not if you want to go back to how you used to feel!

Am I too young for HRT? How early is too early for TRT?

People in their mid-twenties and mid-thirties often ask if it is too early to go on TRT. Since taking exogenous hormones can shut down your body’s natural production of these hormones, men often expect to permanently take these powerful drugs.

Perhaps you worry about depending on an outside source for your “manhood.”

As men, we love standing up for ourselves, being independent of any outside help. But the fact is, sometimes our bodies don’t work properly for whatever reason. Maybe it’s genetics. Maybe it’s the result of an accident when you were young. Or, as discussed [HERE], it could be that lifelong exposure to modern chemicals has messed up your body’s endocrine system, and decreased your ability to produce testosterone.

Think of all the men who are on blood-thinners, and have to be for the rest of their lives.

Some men feel nervous about starting TRT, because of the negative associations of testosterone with other popular steroids and bodybuilders.

But rest assured, we have formulated the perfect Testosterone Replacement Therapy by studying the most effective, safe, and beneficial solution to low testosterone woes.

That means you will only be taking a minimal dose to avoid shutting down your natural production.

What matters most is how you feel, not how old you are.

Can TRT with AndroPlus cause cancer?

No. TRT has been shown to not increase risk of prostate cancer. However, the presence of prostate cancer or male breast cancer is a reason to withhold treatment with TRT.

Are there unwanted side effects?

The side-effects to normal low-level testosterone replacement are few, but notable.

Some men develop “polycythemia” – a thickening of the blood.

Some men report water retention, caused by increased levels of estrogen – solved by taking a simple estrogen-lowering supplement.

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) has been recorded in some cases, but does not increase the risk of prostate cancer

Who cannot get TRT?

Men who have prostate or breast cancer are contraindicted.

Does your insurance cover TRT?

Oftentimes insurance won’t cover Testim, but will cover Androgel. Still, Androgel is very expensive, and for many men, ineffective. AndroPlus is an affordable alternative to Androgel with better absorption, better smell, and better feel.

Testim is sticky, and remains on the skin. This increases the risk that you may transfer the gel to your wife or children.

Many men have already improved their biochemical responsiveness by switching from Androgel to AndroPlus, resulting in more effective treatment, fewer side effects, and more money back in their wallets. Will you be one of them?
