Androgel Generic (Testosterone) 1.62% is an androgenic agent containing testosterone. In men, it stimulates the development of the genital organs, the prostate gland. It affects the development of secondary sexual characteristics in men, increases libido and potency, and through the central nervous system affects sexual behavior. Reduces fat deposition. Testosterone does not affect the development of the testicles: inhibits the secretion of gonadotropins (LH and FSH) by the pituitary gland.
It has an anabolic effect: it increases muscle mass, retaining nitrogen, sulfur, sodium, phosphorus, K + and water in the body, which are necessary for protein synthesis.
The effects of testosterone manifest themselves after converting it to estradiol, which subsequently binds to receptors of target organs (Leydig’s testicular cells, pituitary, brain, adipose tissue).
