Endocrine Disruptors, Testosterone & Mens’ Health
According to Doctor Ty Vincent who tests men’s testosterone levels he says that maintaining an optimum level of 2000 is not happening these days without some sort of help, so much so that labs don’t even measure above 1500 anymore.
30 years ago it was very different and the levels were much higher.
Lack of testosterone in men means happiness is decreased, muscle mass is decreased as bone density also goes down, belly increases, fat increases, can’t focus, feel like a failure as a man, find it harder to have an erection, hair loss, memory loss.
Basically everything about being a strong capable man is decreased.
He just won’t feel the same as he used to.
Why is this happening?
Our environment is changing; the food we eat does not have the nourishment needed for the building blocks of health. Our world is full of toxic chemicals and endocrine disruptors.
Endocrine disruptors will cause oestrogen / estrogen dominance in both men and women and cause a higher incidence of cancers such as prostate and breast cancers.
How do we combat this problem?
There are a few lifestyle changes that will help such as:
Making sure you get good sleep.
Avoiding soy products (they are oestrogenic / estrogenic).
Avoiding endocrine disrupting chemicals.
Exercising regularly, especially weight training.
Controlling blood sugar, especially by eating fewer grains.
Making sure you eat well and are supplementing your diet with good quality supplements.
