What Foods Reduce Testosterone Levels??

WHAT FOODS REDUCE TESTOSTERONE?


TESTOSTERONE IS ONE OF THE MAJOR SEX HORMONES IN THE BODY. ALTHOUGH MEN PRODUCE MORE TESTOSTERONE, IT IS AN IMPORTANT HORMONE FOR WOMEN AS WELL. TESTOSTERONE PROMOTES AN INCREASE IN MUSCLE MASS, BONE MASS, BODY HAIR, AND INFLUENCES REPRODUCTION.
THE MALE SEX HORMONE TESTOSTERONE PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN A MAN’S FERTILITY, SEXUAL FUNCTION, AND MUSCLE MASS. TESTOSTERONE LEVELS NATURALLY FALL WITH AGE, AT AN AVERAGE RATE OF ONE TO TWO PERCENT PER YEAR.





FOR MEN DEALING WITH LOW TESTOSTERONE LEVELS, CERTAIN DIETARY CHANGES CAN BE MADE TO NATURALLY BOOST YOUR BODY’S HORMONE PRODUCTION. CONSUME THESE FOODS ON A REGULAR BASIS TO UP YOUR BODY’S NATURAL PRODUCTION OF TESTOSTERONE

THESE FOODS MIGHT INDIRECTLY LEAD TO LOWER TESTOSTERONE LEVELS:
1.    DAIRY PRODUCT
2.    ALCOHOL
3.    REFINED CARBOHYDRATES & SUGARS
4.    SOY PRODUCTS
5.    VEGETABLE OIL
6.    LOW-QUALITY MEAT/PROCESSED FOODS

  • DAIRY PRODUCTS

MANY PEOPLE LOOKING TO RAISE THEIR TESTOSTERONE LEVELS MIGHT CHOOSE TO AVOID DAIRY PRODUCTS. THIS MAY BE BECAUSE SOME COW’S MILK CONTAINS SYNTHETIC OR NATURAL HORMONES, WHICH MIGHT AFFECT A PERSON’S TESTOSTERONE LEVELS. Besides THE TWINS HIGHLIGHT THAT COWS THAT AREN’T GRASS-FED MAY EAT ANIMAL FEED THAT CONTAINS SOY, WHICH COULD INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF ESTROGEN IN THE MILK.
ALSO, ANIMAL FEED MAY CONTAIN SOY, WHICH COULD INCREASE THE LEVELS OF ESTROGEN IN THE COW’S MILK.

  • ALCOHOL
ANYONE WITH CONCERNS ABOUT THEIR TESTOSTERONE LEVELS MIGHT ALSO CONSIDER GIVING UP OR LIMITING DRINKING ALCOHOL. THIS MAY BE ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR MALES.

WHILE SOME STUDIES HAVE FOUND EVIDENCE THAT A SMALL AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL INCREASES TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN MEN, THIS IS GENERALLY NOT THE CASE. AS A STUDY POSTED TO CURRENT DRUG ABUSE REVIEW NOTES, HEAVY DRINKING OR REGULAR DRINKING OVER LONG PERIODS CAUSES A DECREASE OF TESTOSTERONE IN MALES.

THE PAPER ALSO NOTES THAT ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION CAUSES AN INCREASE IN TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN WOMEN.
  • BREAD, PASTRIES, AND DESSERTS

A STUDY IN THE JOURNAL NUTRIENTS LINKED A DIET HIGH IN BREAD, PASTRIES, AND OTHER DESSERTS TO LOW TOTAL TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN TAIWANESE MEN. ADDITIONAL FACTORS INCLUDED HIGH DAIRY CONSUMPTION, EATING OUT REGULARLY, AND NOT EATING ENOUGH DARK GREEN VEGETABLES.
ACCORDING TO THE ARTICLE, THESE MEN ALSO HAD DECREASED MUSCLE MASS AND INCREASED BODY FAT.

  • SOY PRODUCTS

SOY FOODS, SUCH AS TOFU, EDAMAME, AND SOY PROTEIN ISOLATES, CONTAIN PHYTOESTROGENS. THESE COMPOUNDS ARE PHYSICALLY SIMILAR TO THE ESTROGEN IN THE BODY AND FUNCTION IN A SIMILAR WAY.

SOY HAS A PHYTONUTRIENT CALLED PHYTOESTROGENS WHICH IS NATURALLY OCCURRING IN THE PLANT AND ACTS SIMILAR TO THE FEMALE SEX HORMONE, ESTROGEN, IN THE HUMAN BODY

THE PAPER NOTES THAT MANY STUDIES HAVE NOT FOUND A CONNECTION BETWEEN EATING SOY PRODUCTS AND ALTERED SERUM TESTOSTERONE OR ESTROGEN LEVELS. HOWEVER, ANOTHER STUDY SHOWED THAT BREAST TENDERNESS AND ESTROGEN CONCENTRATIONS RETURNED TO NORMAL AFTER A MAN STOPPED USING SOY.

THE RESEARCHERS SUGGESTED THAT PHYTOESTROGENS IN SOY MIGHT AFFECT THE BODY WITHOUT CHANGING THE BODY’S HORMONE LEVELS, WHICH COULD CAUSE SYMPTOMS OF HIGH ESTROGEN.

RESEARCHERS NEED TO DO MORE HIGH-QUALITY RESEARCH IN BOTH MALES AND FEMALES TO IDENTIFY THE EXACT EFFECTS OF SOY IN THE BODY.

  • VEGETABLE OIL
VEGETABLE OIL IS SAID TO AFFECT TESTOSTERONE LEVELS, BUT SIMILARLY TO REFINED CARBOHYDRATES, THIS DECLINE IS SAID TO BE CONNECTED TO SUBSEQUENT WEIGHT GAIN.
VEGETABLE OIL IS OLIVES, RAPESEED, PALM, PEANUT OR SOYBEANS THAT ARE LIQUID AT ROOM TEMPERATURE.

  • LOW-QUALITY MEAT/PROCESSED FOODS
LOW-QUALITY MEAT THAT IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN SPRAYED WITH HORMONE TREATMENTS AND ANTIBIOTICS FOR PRESERVATION PURPOSES IS SAID TO TRIGGER HORMONAL IMBALANCES, THOUGH LARGE SCALE FINDINGS ARE INCONCLUSIVE.
PROCESSED MEATS AND READY MEALS ARE SAID TO BE EQUALLY DAMAGING TO YOUR HORMONES AS THEY ARE HIGH IN SODIUM, CALORIES, SUGAR AND, TRANS-FATS, WHICH OFFER A SIMILAR EXPLANATION AS VEGETABLE OIL.
ONE STUDY SUGGESTS THAT MEN WHO CONSUME A HIGH LEVEL OF PROCESSED OR LOW-QUALITY MEATS HAD A 15% LOWER VOLUME OF TESTOSTERONE AS WELL AS A 37% DECREASE IN SPERM COUNT.
  • MINT
SOME STUDY INDICATE MINT AS A CULPRIT FOR INHIBITING TESTOSTERONE PRODUCTION. STUDIES SUGGEST THAT MINT MAY REDUCE TESTOSTERONE LEVELS.

PEPPERMINT AND SPEARMINT MAY MAKE A CALMING TEA, BUT THE MENTHOL IN MINT MAY REDUCE TESTOSTERONE LEVELS.


  • OTHER FACTORS
A PERSON WHO SMOKES MAY HAVE A HORMONE IMBALANCE.

OTHER FACTORS THAT MAY INFLUENCE HORMONE IMBALANCES OR LOW TESTOSTERONE INCLUDE: AGING A SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE CHRONIC DRUG, TOBACCO, AND MARIJUANA USE OBESITY DIABETES WAYS TO BOOST TESTOSTERONE NATURALLY

THERE MAY ALSO BE SOME WAYS TO BOOST TESTOSTERONE NATURALLY, INCLUDING:

  • EATING A MORE BALANCED DIET FOCUSED ON FRESH FOODS
  • AVOIDING OVEREATING. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW YOUR BMR CALORIES, COUNT. MAINTAIN PROPER DIET PLAN.
  • AVOIDING OBESITY.
  • DOING REGULAR EXERCISE. DOING REGULAR 20 -30 MINUTES of CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE. FOCUS YOUR WORKOUTS ON YOUR MUSCLES. HIT THE WEIGHT ROOM AT THE GYM, OR GET A TRAINER TO HELP YOU WITH A ROUTINE ON THE EXERCISE MACHINES. CARDIO HAS ITS BENEFITS, BUT IT DOESN'T BOOST YOUR TESTOSTERONE AS STRENGTH TRAINING CAN.
  • BE CAREFUL TO NOT OVERDO IT. TOO MUCH EXERCISE CAN TAKE YOUR T LEVEL IN THE OTHER DIRECTION.

GETTING PLENTY OF SLEEP EACH NIGHT. SLEEP AT 7 TO 8 HOURS IN DAY

  • SUMMARY
DIET AND EXERCISE PLAY AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN MAINTAINING GOOD HEALTH AND KEEPING THE HORMONES BALANCED. SOME FOODS, SUCH AS DAIRY, FATS, AND SOY, MAY REDUCE TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN THE BODY. ANYONE WHO HAS CONCERNS ABOUT THEIR TESTOSTERONE LEVELS MAY WANT TO AVOID THESE FOODS.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MALE SEX HORMONE, T, AND OBESITY IS COMPLEX, AND DIETARY-RELATED FACTORS MAY SERVE AS IMPORTANT INTERMEDIATES. THE STUDY RESULTS SUGGEST THAT INDIVIDUALS WHO PREFER WESTERN-STYLE FOOD (BREAD AND PASTRIES, DAIRY PRODUCTS, AND DESSERTS), EAT OUT, AND EAT FEWER HOMEMADE FOODS, NOODLES, AND DARK GREEN VEGETABLES ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE AN UNHEALTHY BODY COMPOSITION (E.G., INCREASED VISCERAL FAT AND DECREASED SKELETAL MUSCLE MASS) AND LOW SERUM TOTAL T LEVELS, AND ARE LIKELY TO DEVELOP HYPOGONADISM. RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS ARE NEEDED TO CONFIRM THAT AN IMPROVEMENT IN DIETARY PATTERN CAN IMPROVE T LEVELS AND REDUCE HYPOGONADISM.
