When Estrogen & Testosterone Get Out Of Whack, Here’s What To Do

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve written before about how many men are experiencing both low testosterone levels (low T) and increased estrogen levels. This combination of hormone imbalances can result in a man packing on the belly fat—and even developing breast tissue! It can also result in decreased mental ability and energy levels, depression, and issues with sexual function like loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. Low testosterone is also a risk factor for heart disease, obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other health issues.

9 Ways on How To Lower SHBG Count Naturally to Raise Free-Testosterone

We have testosterone which is bound to two different proteins, albumin and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). This bound up testosterone is unavailable to be used by our androgen receptors and it’s basically like a “reserve” of our male hormones.

Then we have “free testosterone”, which isn’t bound to glycoproteins. It floats around the bloodstream and is constantly ready to bind into the androgen receptors, creating masculinizing effects

Free testosterone only accounts 1-2% of our total testosterone but experts agree that it’s the most important kind as it’s the one that is actually bio-available.

Now if you’re smart, you’re probably thinking…

“How could I get more of this free testosterone then?”

That’s what this article is about. You see, science has shown that we can naturally reduce these binding proteins from our bloodstream, resulting in more free testosterone.

That’s why this article is about how to lower SHBG, which is the protein that binds most of your total testosterone making it unavailable for the receptors. By simply learning how to lower SHBG count in your body, you will free up testosterone and make it more powerful.

NOTE: Albumin, which is the other binding protein, is much weaker and less abundant than SHBG, thus I don’t feel the need to focus on it as much as we should on sex hormone binding globulin.

Testosterone Influences Regulation of Emotional Behavior in the Brain of Psychopathic Offenders

 

Brain research has demonstrated that psychopathic offenders exhibit reduced control over their emotional actions. Our group of researchers from University College London and Donders Institute at Radboud University discovered that the quantity of testosterone a person produces influences the parts of the brain responsible for regulating emotions. The findings provide starting points for the treatment of psychopathic offenders.

9 Medical Causes of a Slow Metabolism

Your metabolism is how your body turns calories into energy, so when you say you have a “slow metabolism,” you really mean your body is hanging onto calories, causing unwanted weight gain. But what causes this to happen? For some people, it could be too much cortisol, known as the “stress hormone.” Normal amounts of cortisol can help you burn fat if it’s working in tandem with other chemicals in your body. But if you have too much cortisol—like if you’re really stressed out for a long time—your body may think you’re under duress and could need extra energy. which is why it clings to calories. This also happens if you have a medical condition called Cushing’s Syndrome, a disorder of the adrenal glands that releases too much cortisol into the bloodstream. “The excess cortisol can promote a significant amount of weight gain,” Michael West, MD, an endocrinologist at the Washington Endocrine Clinic in Washington, DC, told everydayhealth.com. These are other signs stress is making you sick.

The TED Talk above features Penelope Jagessar Chaffer, director of the documentary film “Toxic Baby,”1 and Tyrone Hayes, Ph.D., a professor of integrative biology at the University of California, who has dedicated most of his career to studying the health effects of the herbicide atrazine.

According to Chaffer, the average American woman today has 30,000 to 50,000 chemicals in her body that her grandparents did not have. Many of these chemicals have been linked to the rapidly rising incidence of chronic childhood diseases. Leer Más
