How “Artificial Estrogens” Are Suppressing Your Testosterone Levels

Written by:
How “Artificial Estrogens” Are Suppressing Your Testosterone Levels

If you want to know how natural and manmade chemicals in your environment are suppressing your testosterone levels and what you can do about it, then you want to listen to this podcast.

In this episode, interview author and researcher Dr. Anthony Jay about a topic that isn’t discussed much in the fitness space at least, and that’s how estrogen-like chemicals that we’re exposed to every day can lower testosterone and raise estrogen levels in our bodies.

Most “testosterone talk” revolves around using diet, training, supplements, and even drugs to boost testosterone production, and while that’s one way to do it, there’s also the other side of that coin: removing impediments to testosterone production, which include these estrogen-mimicking chemicals.

Here’s a little sneak peek of what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • How phytoestrogens and mycoestrogens present in certain plant foods can interfere with your hormones.
  • Why an imbalance in sex hormones can promote weight gain.
  • A nasty little trick companies use to make you think their plastics are free of estrogen-mimicking chemicals when they’re not.
  • Five things you can do right now to dramatically reduce your exposure to artificial estrogens and see marked improvements in your hormone profile.
  • And more…
