Women, pull the parachute on your free-falling libido by boosting your testosterone. It is not widely known but testosterone and its precursor, DHEA, drive women's libido. As women age, these androgen levels fall along with the female sex hormone estrogen. Symptoms of Low T and estrogen in women include hot flashes, low libido, depression and difficulty sleeping. Women aren't the only ones who may benefit from testosterone-DHEA to regain their virility and help restore their overall health.

What Are FSA and HSA Accounts?
FSA's and HSA's are federal programs that make it easy for you to enjoy significant tax benefits for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses. Each program works a little differently but with each you avoid federal, state and local income taxes on any funds that you use for qualified medical expenses.
FSA tax benefits are administered by your job. Funds in an amount that you decide —within the program limits—are withdrawn from your paycheck without any payroll tax deductions.
Tax benefits with an HSA may be administered that way but there are also other options.
How Do I Use My FSA/HSA Funds?
You can use a pre-loaded debit card or get reimbursed from your FSA or HSA account after you make your purchase or a combination of both methods.
