This is good news for men as well. Get the gum, guys! We know that male estrogen (di-hydro-testosterone) increases through time, while testosterone falls, due to aging, body fat, hormonal replacement, pesticides, nutritional deficiencies, prescription medications and excessive alcohol intake. In fact, studies have shown that the estrogen levels of the average 54-year-old man is higher than those of the average 59-year-old women! The end result is that these high levels of estrogen can cause reduced levels of testosterone, fatigue, loss of muscle tone, increased body fat, loss of libido and sexual function and an enlarged prostate.
Maybe Pueraeria mirifica should be in a man’s diet too.
But don’t suppose it will take the place of good diet, exercise, cutting down on alcohol and losing plenty of weight.
In addition, men are urged to consider:
Zinc, at least 15 mgms daily. Increases testosterone levels.
Chrysin (from the passion flower), which is well known to inhibit an enzyme called aromatase (Kellis JT Jr et al 1984). Aromatse converts testerone to male estrogen. Bodybuilders have used chrysin as a testosterone-boosting supplement because, by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme, less testosterone is converted into estrogen (our state governor Arnie can’t be wrong – can he?).
Carnitine. Both testosterone and carnitine improve sexual desire, sexual satisfaction, and nocturnal penile tumescence, but carnitine is more effective than testosterone in improving erectile function, nocturnal penile tumescence, orgasm, and general sexual well-being. Carnitine was better than testosterone at treating depression (Cavallini G et al 2004)
Cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cauliflower, contain isothiocyanates and glucosinolates, which act as antioxidants and potent inducers of phase 2 proteins believed to suppress prostate cancer formation (Kris-Etherton PM et al 2002; Talalay P et al 2001).
One extra tidbit, before we close: In males, estrogen is present in low concentrations in blood, but can be extraordinarily high in semen and as high as 250 picograms/ml in testicular fluids, which is higher than serum estradiol in the female.
Just to get me accurate, here is a personal note from Dr I. Sanford Schwarz, the world's leading expert in Pueraria mirifica. He lives and works in Thailand:
While all members of the big three can be found on the underground market only Winny will be found in human grade pharmaceutical fields. While human grade Winny will always be your best choice due to absolute assurance of quality, solid EQ and Tren can be harder to find. While both are available on the underground market the quality can be a role of the dice. However, Vet Grade EQ or Tren will prove to be very effective every time. To obtain horse steroids of the EQ and Tren nature you simply need to find a bottle of EQ; Tren will be a bit trickier. For Tren you will need to buy what is known as Fina-Pellets and convert them to usable Trenbolone-Acetate. Many choose to take this route but you really need to know what you’re doing, have a very sanitary procedure set in place and follow measures perfectly.
