Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sports players are now prohibited from using testosterone therapy by the athletic commission, according to a news report on March 12.
The ban of testosterone therapy for MMA fighters was pushed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after some aging fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) were allowed to use Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). The therapy reportedly makes fighters able to be more successful at an older age by slowing the aging process.
Research has shown that persons who used steroids during their younger years may experience low testosterone levels as they get older, therefore resulting in the need for TRT.
Unfortunately, testosterone supplements also heighten the risk of a person having a heart attack or stroke. If you have suffered health problems as a result of using low-T supplements, call (800) 220-9341.
