Hormonal imbalance or androgens is a known factor that can reduce libido.
Estrogen is considered to be the female hormone while androgens are known as male hormones because they are produced in males.
This is the first sign I experienced that alerted me to something was off: Xeno-estrogens!
They are hormone mimickers, pollutants that can disrupt your endocrine system. Once they bind with your hormone receptors, they may lead to an imbalance in your endocrine system. The endocrine system is what balances with your own hormones.
If there is an excess in these artificial estrogens in the body, they can block, or imbalance the hormone that drives us and we all have: TESTOSTERONE
Plant-based estrogens (phytoestrogens) may have an adverse effect on your body's ability to produce a response to its powerful sexual drives.
Soy is considered the "wonder" food, right?
How any company or corporation or any medical system could endorse such food or supplement, knowing it can cause major side effects, is baffling to me.
Obviously, this (soy), does not appear to be in the best interest of either men or women.
Here's some food for thought: Consuming 30 grams of soy isolate protein is equivalent to taking 5 birth control pills! Imagine what will happen to a young girl if she consumes this (soy), or to a young lady.
Girls may experience precocious maturation of their reproductive system, leading to, for example, early-onset osteoporosis. Liver, thyroid, and pancreas malfunction, for example, might be issued in women whose menstruation began early.
You might start to understand now, why you have a hard time keeping your weight down.
Men experience serious delays or disruptions in the maturation of their reproductive organs as well as feminine physical traits. There is also a decreased interest in sexual intercourse and, more specifically, erectile problems.
Males with excess estrogen have definitely been found to have issues with prostate inflammation, and it seems that with higher estrogen levels also comes lesser performance.
And what about middle-aged women who suffer from hot flashes, mood swings, and irritable attitudes? Honestly, this doesn't make for a fun time.
As we just saw, chemicals in foods and environmental factors can bring you down.
Let's now see what brings you up.
Men and women both need testosterone, so let's take a look at what is giving it to them.
