Discover how 70,000 chemicals approved for use in the
United States have been affecting your hormones for years and
how you can reclaim your manhood and reverse the effects safely and naturally.
There’s a silent epidemic that’s attacking men over the age of 40. And it is this: Overproduction of estrogen.
“Estrogen? No way!” That’s the reaction that most men have when they learn that their bodies are producing too much of the female hormone.
I know it sounds crazy. But because of many unseen factors that I’ll tell you about in a moment … most middle-aged men living in America now have more “female” estrogen in their bodies than the male hormone, testosterone!
The effects of this overabundance of estrogen are enough to make a grown man weep. If you’re a man over 40, here are just a few of the problems that too much estrogen can cause:
Increased Fat in the Chest and Belly
Reduced Energy Levels
Loss of Confidence
Moodiness and Depression
Loss of Ambition and Competitive Spirit
And if left untreated, these symptoms can develop into more serious conditions, such as prostate and testicular cancer!
Believe it or not, there is a scientific explanation for this alarming transformation. A growing number of scientists attribute these symptoms to a worldwide epidemic referred to as estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance doesn’t just affect men; in the past 40 years there has been a dramatic increase in female-related illnesses, nearly all of which can be linked to this very same affliction.
Estrogen dominance in women has been associated with:
Uterine Fibroid Tumors
Before uncovering the ways in which we can prevent and reverse estrogen dominance in both men and women, let’s discuss the causes behind this widespread hormonal imbalance.
Beware of Man-Made Chemicals That Can Alter Your Hormones!
Estrogen dominance is a hormonal imbalance that manifests as excessive levels of estrogen. Estrogen hormones are responsible for the maturation of female sexual characteristics in both humans and animals. Too much estrogen has been shown to turn masculine men into weepy, moody messes. Not to mention the physical changes their bodies undergo, as they lose muscle strength and turn into soft, doughy versions of their previous selves.
While some foods contain more natural estrogen than others (flaxseeds, sesame seeds, beans and legumes are particularly high in estrogen) the primary culprits are the man-made compounds that lace our food, water… and nearly every household or cosmetic product we use! Turns out that the 70,000 chemicals approved for use in the United States don’t just carry a toxic threat; they have been adversely affecting our hormones for years!
These foreign, man-made substances are called xenoestrogens, and they mimic the action of estrogen in the body, thereby influencing hormonal activity. These estrogen imitators latch on to the same receptors that natural female hormones do, imparting a brand new set of instructions to our cells. Their orders are very clear: rebuild the body to become more physically and mentally feminine.
Remember DDT, an insecticide that was banned in 1972 after it was proven to be an ecological threat and possibly cause cancer in humans? DDT is just one example of a xenoestrogen that lingers in the body for decades, accumulating in the fatty tissues of breasts. In fact, women with detectable levels of DDT were 5 times as likely to develop breast cancer as those with no detectable DDT in their tissues. Even though DDT is no longer used in the U.S., the chemical remains in the soil for centuries.
Put Down That Burger: Traditional “Guy Foods” Have Been Stripped of Masculinity!
Foods that used to bulk men up are now softening men down. Xenoestrogens in the form of growth hormones are fed to cattle, poultry, pigs and other livestock. Commercial meat and dairy products that come from animals raised with growth hormones are highly estrogenic, so think twice before eating that chicken sandwich!
Processed and refined foods also have high estrogen contents because they lack a sufficient amount of fiber. Fiber helps to eliminate excess estrogen. A 2009 study published in Chemical Research in Toxicology discovered that 2 frequently used additives, propyl gallate and 4-hexyl resorcinol, stimulate estrogenic activity in our bodies. What about the other 3,000 U.S. approved food additives? According to Environmental News Today, none have been tested for their effects on estrogen levels in the body.
Other dangerous food sources included coffee and other caffeinated beverages, common food dyes FD&C and Red NO. 3, and food preservatives BHA and BHT.
Even Toiletries Aren’t Safe
Sunscreens, body lotions, nail polish, toothpastes, soaps, gels, hairsprays and many more cosmetic products increase your risk for estrogen dominance. Xenoestrogens absorbed by the skin are 10 times more powerful than those consumed orally because they don’t travel through the liver, instead they are ushered directly to the cells. Just one more reason to stay away from products containing parabens, phenoxyethanol, and phthalates.
Household cleaners, such as laundry detergent, fabric softener, air fresheners and insect repellant are particularly noxious.
Yet Another Warning Against Plastic
Plastic, especially soft plastics, contain estrogen-mimicking compounds that seep out and breakdown over time, especially when exposed to heat. The danger lies in a chemical called bisphenol A (BPA), which is found in the lining of food cans and juices. One case documents the effects of BPA on men working in the plastics industry. Workers developed man boobs after continually inhaling the chemical in dust.
Be cautious of food storage containers, certain clothing and footwear, IV bags, baby bottles, packaging of children’s toys, yogurt containers, baby bottles and other plastic household items.
How You can Protect Yourself from Estrogen Overload
Maintain a healthy weight by eating moderately and exercising.
Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.
Eat a high fiber diet to help remove excess estrogen.
Drink alcohol moderately or not at all: Alcohol stimulates estrogen production and inhibits the kidney’s ability to rid the body of estrogen.
Avoid foods and products containing xenoestrogens.
Despite your best efforts, however, it is nearly impossible to defeat the onslaught of hormonal disruptors in the environment. That is why it is important to supplement with “anti-feminizing” ingredients that neutralize estrogen before it begins to change your body. Minimizing the effects of unwanted estrogen will help you boost muscle mass, trim your waist, harden those soft spots, increase libido and lift your confidence so you can regain your masculine edge.
