Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. It belongs to the group of androgens, which is the group containing all the hormones that regulate the development and maintenance of male characteristics.
Both men and women have testosterone, but men have approximately 10 times more of it. For women, the primary sex hormone is estrogen.
Testosterone is also what is called an anabolic steroid. Which means that when testosterone enters androgen receptors in muscle tissue or bones, it promotes creation and growth of muscles and bones.
For a grown man, a normal total testosterone level is considered to be between 300 ng/dl and 1,050 ng/dl (ng/dl = monograms testosterone per deciliter blood).
A normal free testosterone level is generally considered to be be between 5 ng/dL and 21 ng/dL.
These are the numbers set by the medical industry.
