there are few things that have a greater impact on the male physique than estrogens okay here’s the thing with this video I’m not here to try to scare you into not consuming any kind of things they’re gonna trigger estrogen in your body my purpose with this video is to educate you so you could moderate consumption and make the right lifestyle changes not to scare the heck out of you hey if you’re looking for an unbiased approach to health wellness and fitness then I encourage you to subscribe to my channel make sure you hit that little Bell button so you can turn on notifications and know whenever I post a new video on Tuesdays Fridays and Sundays at 7 a.m. Pacific time alright let’s get down to the brass tacks so first off we have to understand just a little bit about estrogen okay estrogen is very important we need it men need it women need it but it’s also one of the things that if we overdo just a tiny bit can send us into a downward spiral that destroys our physique ok if you’re holding a lot of water if you feel puffy if you just feel like you’re having a hard time getting rid of excess body fat then to be completely honest there’s a highly highly likely chance that you are having an issue with estrogen and a lot of it isn’t necessarily your fault it can be the overconsumption of things that are just seemingly healthy and I want to help you understand what they are because when we look at estrogen you have to remember that it tells your body to enter into this aroma taste cycle where it continues to build more fat once the aroma taste enzyme is activated which processes estrogen within your body it triggers your body to store fat and the more fat cells that you have the more aroma taste enzymes that you have which means the more activity more aroma taste activity the more estrogenic activity so more fat equals more estrogen more estrogen equals more fat do the math we have to control it and stop it somewhere so what we have to look at when it comes down to understanding the estrogens that we consume is the two different kinds we have xeno estrogens and phytoestrogens xeno estrogens are foreign estrogens that are formed outside of an animal body ok and then we have phytoestrogens which are estrogens that are formed inside of a plant they both have very similar effects within the body but slightly different in terms of their molecular makeup so let’s take a look at the first thing I want you to start modulating so you can really get a grasp on your estrogen and try to get those things in check right this first one is going to be wheaton grains i’m not going to tell you not to consume wheat and grains at all but i am going to tell you to start considering your source and modulating whenever you can they’re very high in a xenoestrogen known as zero al anam also known as a ze a so ze a is very very similar to estrogen in terms of its molecular structure so much so that it mimics estrogen inside our bodies so whenever we consume ze a s our body thinks we have an influx of estrogen now the reason that ze as form in wheat so much is simply because there is a fungus that grows in wheat especially in uncontrolled environments so when we just sitting around for a while which it typically has to do when it’s waiting for harvest it ends up forming this fungus and this fungus causes the ze ace to form which caused a big issue within our bodies now what these ceas do is they bind a very specific estrogen receptors and then our body specifically the receptor for 1-7 estradiol 1-7 estradiol is probably the most important estrogen that we need to be paying attention to and I’ll explain it in a little bit more detail in a latter part of this video so I wanted to make sure that you’re staying tuned now to put matters into perspective there is a study that was published in the Journal of cell chemical biology and it took a look at ze a s and their effect on something known as letrozole okay so let rizal is a pharmaceutical that is designed as an anti estrogen so it’s sort of the job of letrozole to go in there and kill off extra estrogen guys take it if they’re holding a lot of water women will take it for various reasons and a lot of times you see bodybuilders take it to try to cut some extra water to look a little bit leaner the point is select result is very very very powerful and what they found in this study was that even a small to moderate amount of ze a s nullified the effects of letrozole so meaning it made estrogen so powerful that letrozole couldn’t even do its job it had such a powerful effect on the estrogen receptor and the 1-7 estradiol receptor that it basically made it like this pharmaceutical didn’t exist that just gives you an idea of the magnitude of simples e EAS that are sitting in our wheat in in our grains okay now we have to talk about soy for a second one that you’ve probably heard all the time countless guys on the internet will tell you not to consume soy because you’re gonna end up having massive amounts of estrogen yeah yada yada well first I want to say this you can handle a little bit of soy guys it’s not going to kill you and it’s not going to make your estrogen levels go through the roof the issue comes into play with the overconsumption of soy and I’ll explain that in one second because unfortunately there is a good likelihood that you’re already consuming too much soy so soy is high in what is called an isoflavone okay soy isoflavones are phytoestrogens they’re plant estrogens they’re estrogens that are formed inside of a plant and they do two different things inside the human body specifically in the male body what they do is they down regulate the energy and activity while up regulating estrogen activity so what that means is they act upon the estrogen receptors telling our body that we have a lot more estrogen while simultaneously downplaying our antigen receptors androgen is what makes us men it really is what allows us to have those male pattern characteristics a deeper voice sometimes losing our hair things like that androgens are what really make us have those male characteristics so if we don’t have a lot of androgens we can’t really get that that extra edge that we want what really makes us a man so when we down regulate that because we’re simultaneously up regulating estrogen which is putting us into a vicious cycle so when we’re in that kind of situation you can see how it can become a huge huge problem and specifically we’re acting upon the 1-7 estradiol receptor which is one of the most potent important ones that we need to be paying attention to now to make matters even worse unfortunately soy isoflavones are very very gory genic which is a word that basically means they affect your thyroid they down regulate your thyroid so when we down regulate our thyroid we have a subsequent down regulation of testosterone and when we have a down regulation of testosterone we allow estrogen to remain up here so if our testosterone levels are here and our estrogens here and then we suddenly drop our testosterone our estrogen levels stay high and if that ratio is out of proportion the high levels of estrogen continue to sort of envelop the testosterone making it so that ratio gets even worse so that’s where we run into a big problem but again you’re probably not eating a bunch of tofu but you are probably eating a bunch of meat so here’s where the problem starts the biggest protein source of almost all the meat products that we ever eaten is soy meal okay soy meal is fed to chickens it’s fed to cows it’s fed pigs but by and large it has the biggest effect on chickens there was a study that was published in the Journal of bioscience biotechnology and biochemistry that took a deep dive look at the effect of soy on a chicken so what they did is they gave some chickens soy and they gave some chickens traditional feed that didn’t have soy what they found is that the chickens that consumed the soy ended up having a large amount of the soy isoflavones transfer into the yolk of their egg with a peak on the 12th day so what that means is that whenever they consume soy it went through the body and into the actual egg when it Peaks at 12 days that means that we have sort of a cumulative buildup so this particular study only looked at a one-off situation of when the chickens were fed soy imagine chickens that were consistently fed soy okay now another study found the soy isoflavones transfer equally into the tissues of the hints which means when you’re consuming chicken and you’re consuming the breast and you’re consuming the thigh you’re consuming a huge portion of soy isoflavones that’s why it’s very very very critical that you find a pasture raised source of chickens that are not fed soy meal now in case you don’t know I’m a huge proponent of butcher box and they are a huge sponsor of this channel because they recognize what I do in terms of advocating the proper consumption of real meats so they sponsored this video and they’re offering everyone that’s watching this video a massive discount on their grass-fed grass-finished beef but also their pasture raised chicken so go ahead and click the link in the description and you can check that out but I want to explain a little bit more about one more thing you need to know when it comes down to estrogens in the body but before I move on to the next thing that’s affecting estrogen then I also want to leave you with this it was found that poultry manure had four times the amount of total estrogens than any other manure okay you’ll also found there was nine times the amount of one seven estradiol in poultry manure compared to beef and pork so what this means is that chicken ends up having the highest level of soy in it and also has the highest level of the dangerous one 7 estradiol estrogen that we do not want in our bodies so again if you want an inexpensive source of poultry click on the link down below lastly I want to talk about BPA’s now by and large we’re seeing that BPA’s have been sort of eradicated out of the plastics that we use now but there’s still a lot of Tupperware’s out there that have BPA’s in them BPA is activate in the liver and they do some interesting things within the body they actually trigger the brain via RNA to create more estrogen receptors which means you now have more localized points for estrogen to absorb so this is a very very severe issue we’re actually acting upon the RNA in the DNA we’re actually changing the body’s structure so that it absorbs more estrogens so when you think about the double whammy of putting chicken in a plastic Tupperware and then microwaving the Tupperware because you’re eating six times per day you can see the impact that you’re gonna have on your body also insert point why I’m a big fan of intermittent fasting you don’t have to be carrying the Tupperware around all the time now there was a study that was published in the journal of sterility and fertility that took a look at 218 men ok some of these men they had used BPA’s they measured if they had BPA’s in their system well lo and behold those that had BPA’s in their system had 3 to 4 times the likelihood of having reduced sperm motility and sperm count which is a very good indicator of not only lower testosterone levels but also increases in estrogen so when you combine all of these things together these are things we’re consuming all the time we consume wheat we consume dairy we consume chicken we consume beef and we’re consuming these things they’re just adding up inside our bodies so yeah sure some people will say that all the people that talk about avoiding soy are crazy but the reality is that you’re consuming a heck of a lot more soy than people were 50 60 70 years ago so yes you should be able to consume a little bit of soy but the problem you can’t just consume a little bit of soy unless you are truly truly paying attention to what’s on a label and truly paying attention to what you’re putting in your body so as always make sure you’re keeping it locked in here on my channel you have ideas for future videos you know where to put them and please please PLEASE do us all a favor and keep this channel going by supporting put your box down below in the description I will see you in the next video

Top 4 Sources of Estrogen Men Should Avoid – Thomas DeLauer
There are few things that have a greater impact on the male physique than estrogen. Okay, here’s the thing with this video. I’m not here to try to scare you into not consuming any kind of things that are going to trigger estrogen in your body. My purpose with this video, is to educate you so you can moderate consumption and make the right lifestyle changes. Not to scare the heck out of you.

Alright, lets get down to the brass tags. So first off we have to understand just a little bit about estrogen. Okay. Estrogen is very important. We need it. Men need it. Women need it. But it’s also one of the things that if we over do just a tiny bit can send us into a downward spiral that destroys our physique. Okay. If you’re holding a lot of water, if you feel puffy, if you just feel like you’re having a hard time getting rid of excess body fat, then to be completely honest there’s a highly, highly likely chance that you are having an issue with estrogen. And a lot of it isn’t necessarily your fault. It can be the over consumption of things that are just seemingly healthy and I want to help you understand what they are. Because when we look at estrogen, you have to remember that it tells your body to enter into this aromatase cycle where it continues to build more fat. Once the aromatase enzyme is activated which processes estrogen within your body, it triggers your body to store fat. And the more fat cells that you have the more aromatase enzyme that you have. Which means some more activity, more aromatase activity, the more estrogenic activities. So more fat equals more estrogen. More estrogen equals more fat. Do the math. We have to control it and stop it somewhere.
So what we have to look at when it comes down to understanding the estrogens that we consume is the two different kinds. We have Xenoestrogens and Phytoestrogens. Xenoestrogens are foreign estrogens that are formed outside of an animal body, okay. And then we have Phytoestrogens which are estrogens that are formed inside of a plant. They both have very similar effects within the body but slightly different in term of their molecular makeup. So let’s take a look at the first think I want you to start modulating so you can really get a grasp on your estrogen.
Alright, this first one is going to be wheat and grains. I’m not going to tell you not to consume wheat and grains at all, but I am going to tell you to start considering your source and modulate it whenever you can. They are very high in a Xenoestrogen known as Zearalenone, also known as a ZEA.
