Counteracting
« on: February 03, 2012, 03:40:12 am »
ok - question....Reading about hops/beer effect on test/estrogen increaser.....would it be fair to say if you love really hoppy beer (IPAs),  - ie, me - and it's super hard to imagine life without it, but you want to control the bad effects, then you could *counteract* the effects by eating say, a ton more broccoli (or other estrogen blocker)?

or does it not work that way...

Have one beer and leave it at that. Savour that one beer! Then go and eat some broccoli! 

I don't think it's a viable option to drink lots of beer and then pig out on veg. The excess beer will have negative effects that no amount of veg can cure.

I haven't seen any good evidence that broccoli actually decreases estrogen levels significantly.  It's claim to fame is that it shifts the estrogen profile from good to bad. 

This is a big subject, but the general consensus out there is that one or two drinks per day is good for the male cardiovascular system.  However, it does slightly increase your risk for GI cancers.  But heart disease is a bigger killer, so most experts are pro-alcohol as long as it is moderate. 

This is not true for women, by the way, who are likely at increased breast cancer risk from just one drink per day.

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Oh mama!  Well, what's a little elevated estrogen among friends, eh? 

Let's see if he can catch Joe Montana!

haha! that's right...and well, i don't have man-boobs or anything, so i have to believe i'm not getting killed on the estrogen. I'm really lean.

but overall, i'm going to try and cut down, as that would be good regardless. Just not Sunday :)

And yes, i'm sure most of the country is sick of the Patriots, but they are my team, always have been, and i have treasured this success over the last 10 years. Let's see if he can enter Montana territory!

He is a pleasure to watch.  I read he was 199th in the draft pick - still can't believe that one!
