Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group and is found in mammals, reptiles, birds, and other vertebrates. It is derived from cholesterol. It is primarily secreted in the testes of males and the ovaries of females. It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In men, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle, bone mass, and the growth of body hair, adequate levels of red blood cells, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive function. Testosterone can be used by an athlete in order to improve performance.
