Estrogen is a female sex hormone that is also present in males in small amounts.
According to the Mayo Clinic, estrogen can lower testosterone levels in men by inhibiting the production of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which are hormones produced by the pituitary gland that stimulate the production of testosterone in the testicles.
Warning signs of high estrogen levels include:
Increased body fat
Decreased muscle mass
Mood swings and depression
Loss of body hair
Sexual performance issues
Decreased bone density
Unfortunately, high estrogen levels rarely go away on their own, and long-term this problem can lead to more serious health issues.
That’s why it’s mission-critical to balance estrogen levels now – not only for the exercise performance-boosting benefits – but for your overall health.
