Why Alphagenix?

At Alphagenix we are passionate about improving the quality of life for men nationwide through education, investigation, diagnosis and the treatment of low testosterone levels.

Our co-founder Ross was first diagnosed in his early thirties with low levels and so has first-hand experience of how it can affect everyday life.

“I first started having symptoms when I was 32, although the full extent of my imbalance wasn’t discovered for a few years”

“Initially my main symptoms were aching joints and a complete lack of focus, my brain felt foggy and I remember one day at its peak, I couldn’t even speak coherently as my thoughts were all jumbled up. I felt 52 rather than my age and this was obviously affecting my personal life as well as work. Blood Tests at my GP revealed some very unusual results and I was referred to an Endocrinologist who diagnosed Hypothyroidism and prescribed medication. Unfortunately, this worsened my symptoms but when I discussed this with my Doctor he suggested that perhaps my symptoms were “all in my head”.

Furious, I searched for a private physician with an interest in Men’s Health and luckily found one in London, who after a 60-minute appointment suggested I had low Testosterone and an Iodine deficiency. This diagnosis was confirmed via tests within days and I began my first Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), a gel and an Iodine Supplement. I now felt about 40.

Next, he suggested some lifestyle changes including a specific diet, and within a matter of weeks I was running up and down the stairs and felt in my twenties again. Fast forward 11 years, my clarity and focus is 100%, I have a beautiful family and on a business level I’ve started 6 companies, sold 4 and acquired another 6. I’m still on TRT (I now inject), I’ve climbed mountains on 6 continents and feel stronger and fitter than when I was in my twenties.

Earlier this year I realised that I rarely shared my hormonal journey which made me think, how many other men out there are not sharing their stories, or worse, not receiving the help they need and the seed was planted for Alphagenix”
