While womens’ hormones will always be far more complex than mens – it is totally possible (and common) for males hormones to be out of balance – low testosterone being one of the most common.
What causes this imbalance? Low testosterone is generally not caused by one factor and there are many factors that can negatively affect your hormone levels.
Some factors include:
1. Excessive refined sugars/carbohydrates (Chronically elevated insulin can disrupt hormone pathways in the body and can suppress testosterone production)
2. Chronic stress! When cortisol levels are chronically high, testosterone secretion is suppressed.
3. Estrogen contaminated drinking water (from birth control/pharmaceuticals containing synthetic estrogens), hormones in meat, anabolic steroid use and xenoestrogens in the environment!
