is produced in the adrenal and testicular tissue. When men reach their forties, falling progesterone levels lead to a fall in testosterone levels. As both the progesterone and testosterone levels decline, the male body becomes estrogen dominant.
Food for Thought
Certain foods can help to decrease the bodyâ€™s estrogen load. You need to develop a diet, moderately high in calories, that allows for protein and healthy fats at every meal. It includes ample portions of â€śbelly-blasterâ€ť foods that will reduce or eliminate your extra estrogen load.
The stars of the nutritional component of the plan are cruciferous vegetables, citrus fruits, insoluble fiber, and lignans, because these foods function within your body to reduce an unhealthy estrogen load.
Cruciferous vegetables are a critical part of your success on this plan. Eating large amounts of broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, Brussels sprouts, celery, beet root, kale, cabbage, parsley root, radish, turnip, collard greens, and mustard greens have been shown to improve the production of â€śgoodâ€ť estrogen. Although not considered cruciferous, asparagus and spinach are also â€śbelly blastersâ€ť because they also improve â€śgoodâ€ť estrogen levels.
