As my username implies, it might be good to take a look at the "Big Picture". I have been doing quite a bit of research into the "hormonal" side of things such as estrogen and testosterone "ratio" or balance of the two.
What I have found is that the chemical "BPA" (among other chemicals) in plastics is said to be causing an increase in estrogen levels in both males & females. While it is not as serious of a concern in females per se, it IS of a significant concern in men. Men are NOT supposed to have elevated levels of estrogen and certainly not an imbalance in relation to testosterone.
If you think about it, virtually EVERYTHING we eat or drink for that matter comes from a plastic container. The list is endless, milk, water, fruit juice, SODA, tv dinners, etc., THEN we store leftovers in PLASTIC CONTAINERS. WHY? Because they are a convenient method to keep your food in and avoid wasting leftover food.
So what I have been doing to avoid the use of plastics is either make smaller portions so there are no leftovers and have moved my water (I drink ALOT of water) storage into glass containers. I filter my tap water and then boil it to kill off Cryptosporidium & Giardia (a little off topic here but are known causes of possible intestinal distress such as diahrea, see the CDC for more info on why it is a good idea). In doing this, I don't have to buy bottled water in PLASTIC bottles.
My next step is to get my levels tested to see my estrogen/testosterone levels/ratio. IF my estrogen level is out of range, then it would make sense to find out how to cleanse/remove it from my body.
Excess estrogen CAUSES the SAME symptoms as Low T in men, so research this and find out how to make the necessary changes to keep it OUT of your body.
So far my changes haven't caused any improvement in my overall situation but I'm just getting started so I know changes will take time but I feel I AM moving in the right direction.
I also took Ageless Male for about 5 months and only noticed an ever so slight improvement and stopped it.
I cannot say I have noticed any side effects of stopping it.
My research is inconclusive as I'm just beginning to look into the cause and negative effects on the male body and reproductive system at this time, however, I just came across your forum and thought I would share my preliminary findings.
IMHO, it seems that since BlueM has experimented with so many different types of herbs & supplements both before & after taking Ageless Male, it would seem difficult to prove conclusively that Ageless Male was or continues to be the cause of his ED problem.
BTW, I was hoping to see whether BlueM has resolved his problems and is now a happily married man. How about it BlueM, we ALL read your posts and curious minds want to know...
