Progesterone. It’s not just for women
Progesterone (the happy hormone) is made in the ovaries and adrenal glands of women and also, Progesterone is made in the testes and adrenal glands of men.
Interestingly, progesterone levels in males can equal that of a female during certain phases of her cycle, according to Medical News today.
The male hormone progesterone counteracts estrogen in the male body. Why is this important? Here is what is important to consider.
Plasticizers in the environment can mimic the hormone estrogen.
Estrogen “mimicking” chemicals trick your body into thinking you have MORE estrogen. Since estrogen is responsible to add body fat around organs to protect any developing life, you as a male will experience this as extra belly fat.
Many men just chalk this up to advancing age. This is not always the case.
BPA – A hormone hijacker you probably encounter daily
Here is an unlikely place to find excess estrogen and you may not even be aware of it.
Your grocery store shopping receipt is full of estrogen mimicking chemicals that can lead to increased body fat and hormonal fluctuations. BPA and BPP are names you might see on your plastics.
And don’t let the BPA FREE label fool you. It is just a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Plastic water bottles, microwaveable containers and coffee cup lids are other common sources of estrogen mimickers. So how do these affect you?
When estrogen levels rise in men, testosterone levels may drop resulting in an imbalance. Common symptoms are:
Decreased Sexual Performance
Inability to Maintain Muscle Mass
When a good thing goes bad
Consequently, certain conditions cause testosterone to convert to DHT. DHT is a male hormone which is made from testosterone. DHT is what is responsible for young men experiencing deepening of the voice, facial hair and muscles.
In older males, testosterone can convert to DHT with the help of 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme held in the oil glands of hair follicles.
It is the action of DHT that may lead to male pattern baldness. Balancing male hormones helps divert some of the processes that lead to male pattern baldness.
Feeling youthful, muscular, strong and energetic takes a delicate orchestration of the male hormones.
