Stabilizing Male Hormones | AAI Smoothie Healing and Optimizing
It doesn’t matter if you are exercising and eating well. If your hormones are not where they should be, you are suffering in one way or another. Sadly, sometimes the damage is not palpable, and the sufferer ignores it until it has been going on for so long that something significantly impactful happens (physiological, emotional, mental). Yes, there are options like what we do here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, where you can obtain a prescription for bio-identical hormones. Still, before anyone jumps into Testosterone Therapy or HGH therapy, they should attempt to increase their endocrine production naturally.
Once you start participating in hormone therapy, your body’s endocrine system has to work less since you’re doing all the work. You only want to reach that point once your body can no longer produce ample amounts.
This happens to the great majority of us around the age of 30. Unfortunately, as toxins and pollutants continue to bombard our society, that age number continues to drop. This is where the importance of stabilizing male hormones comes in.
The Endocrine System: 101
Before we get into the art of stabilizing male hormones through smoothies, it’s important to understand the endocrine system. The endocrine system is made up of a collection of glands. These include the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands, as well as the pancreas. Several tissues of the other organ systems also contain hormone-secreting glands and function as part of the endocrine system.
These include the following:
- bone marrow
- adipose (fat) tissue
The Problem with Problems of the Endocrine System
The effects of hormone disruption in the body can range from bothersome to deadly.
While hormonal changes can result from birth or genetic defects, others can be caused by:
Any overproduction, underproduction, or shift in the balance of hormone levels can interfere with normal physical function. Issues in the endocrine glands are often responsible for hormonal imbalances, and because hormones work along with other body systems, endocrine disorders often surface in other organs.
On the other hand, hormonal problems can also be a symptom of non-endocrine diseases. You can understand why checking your hormones is important to ensure they are where they should be. Stabilizing male hormones is more than just about sex; it concerns your whole quality of life.
Best Nutriment for Men
There are a lot of wonderful foods that not only taste delicious but are extremely beneficial to us men in particular because they are rich in specific nutrients our bodies need to optimize some individual tissues and functionalities.
Tomatoes, watermelon, and grapefruit
These foods contain large amounts of lycopene – an antioxidant that protects against prostate cancer.
Know that there is very little bioavailability of raw tomatoes. You will get the most nutritional compounds out of cooked tomatoes. Try a real, authentic tomato soup for maximum nutrient absorption.
Pumpkin seeds, spinach, sunflowers
These all contain high levels of zinc, the mineral known to boost immunity, especially in the prostate region. Zinc also raises testosterone levels in men, improving sex drive.
Hazelnuts, dark leafy greens (kale, chard, spinach), sweet potatoes
All contain large amounts of various B vitamins, which are known to boost testosterone levels.
Lean cuts of beef and pork are packed with protein and have only a little more fat than chicken breast. Red meat is also a good source of leucine, an amino acid that helps build muscle.
They are packed with omega-3 fatty acids. These protect against heart disease, the top killer of men in America.
Oysters contain more zinc per serving than any other food. Zinc is an essential micronutrient for prostate health: Low zinc levels are associated with fertility issues and prostate disease.
Maca is rich in vitamin B, vitamin C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. It works very well to help level out hormones, and as such, it promotes sexual function. It helps with mood, energy and assists with restoring red blood cells.
- Maca Powder should not be taken in excess. Too much can negatively impact your hormone levels. ~ 1x to 2x tbsp. will suffice.
- Be very cautious if you have cancer-related to hormones like testicular and ovarian.
- If you have liver issues or high blood pressure, you should ask your doctor before taking maca.
