What to eat to help your body eliminate excess oestrogen and rise progesterone naturally? You’ve heard right, progesterone is not only a woman’s hormone but also a male’s hormone that is often forgotten.
Men need progesterone in order to produce testosterone and progesterone in both men and women helps counteracting the effects of excess oestrogen in the body. The male body when ages, testosterone is naturally decreasing while oestrogen levels rise and progesterone starts plummeting.
Low progesterone leads to migraines, depression, irregular periods, painful PMS, thyroid issues, fibroids, breast tenderness and low libido in women, while in men hair loss, depression, muscle loss, erectile dysfunction, gynecomastia (man boobs), weight gain and loss of libido.
Balancing your oestrogen levels is crucial to allowing your body produce enough progesterone and that means eating the right kind of products such as:
- Root vegetables (we talked about 200g raw carrots a day)
- Beef liver
- Bone broth
- Fermented dairy products
- Beef meat
- Leafy greens (check your thyroid before consuming them)
