For many years, testosterone has been seen as a metaphor for aggression. The reality is that there is no big connection between testosterone and aggression.

This documentary takes a look at studies that show how subtle the hormone’s effects actually are. Men with a high amount of testosterone are seen as violent and competitive.

But is that true? In the past few years, we’ve seen the image of the sex hormone changing. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone and anabolic steroid in male.

The hormone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as testes and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass.

Decrease in testosterone can lead to physical changes including increased body fat, decreased strength, decreased mass of muscles, fragile bones, and more.
