It’s Not Just In Women...We Promise!
Estrogen is typically associated with women, but did you know it also plays an important role in men’s health? When men are in their adolescent years they have high levels of testosterone and low levels of estrogen. As men age, the levels reverse directions as testosterone begins to convert to estrogen in the tissues of the body. High levels of estrogen in men are said to lead to enlarged breasts, weight gain around the middle and other unpleasant symptoms. It has also been shown to increase the likelihood of developing heart disease, diabetes and prostate cancer.
