These are all quite unpleasant side effects of high estrogen, and it isn't uncommon to experience several of them at once if your estrogen levels remain too high. Even with high testosterone levels, you can still experience ALL of the unwanted side-effects of high estrogen.
Common symptoms of high estrogen:
- Acne, oily skin
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low libido
- Man boob development
- Aggression and bitchiness
- Water retention
- High blood pressure
- Enlarged prostate
- Shrunken testicles
- Sugar cravings
What Caused Your High Estrogen In The First Place
There are several factors that lead to high estrogen levels. The main ones include the following:
- Holding too much body fat
- Leaving your estrogen levels high for a prolonged period of time
- Boosting your testosterone levels without an aromatase inhibitor
- Having high testosterone levels
- Synthetic chemicals found in food
- Recreational drugs like alcohol and marijuana
- Poor diet
- Aging which leads to higher estrogen level
How To Fix Your Hormone Levels in 5 Steps
1) Burn off the excess body fat you have via diet and exercise
2) Reduce or eliminate recreational drug use
3) Shop organic when possible (Optional)
4) Drug Intervention/Aromatase Inhibitor (only if on TRT and under doctor supervision)
I’m shocked to hear about how many doctors put their patients on testosterone replacement therapy to fix their poor hormone levels, but completely neglect to prescribe them an aromatase inhibitor (AI).
An AI does exactly what the name states, it inhibits aromatization. By inhibiting how much testosterone turns into estrogen you can effectively keep your estrogen levels in range despite administering an exogenous source of testosterone.
The issue with aromatase inhibitors is that typically, prescription AI’s are too harsh to use for the average Joe, as they are VERY strong and have a small margin of error.
Taking a bit too much can plummet your estrogen levels which will lead to a host of symptoms that are actually very similar to side-effects of high estrogen.
Often this leads the user to overdose on AI by taking more thinking their estrogen levels are too high which just screws them up even more.
The doctors of course are of no help because they have no idea in hell what they’re doing when it comes to hormone replacement therapy, let alone estrogen control.
Luckily the solution is a 100% legal, non-prescription AI with a greater margin of error. The average Joe can use this without having to worry about weekly blood work.
This is available right now in the form of RED-PCT
RED-PCT is a legal supplement that contains Arimistane which is the most versatile and dependable AI on the market to date.
Not only is it very hard to screw up your dosing while taking RED-PCT. It isn't even harsh on your lipids/cholesterol levels like the traditional Arimidex is.
We assessed just how potent Arimistane was for estrogen control and boosting testosterone by having an average Joe go test his blood work before and after taking RED-PCT.
Within 15 days of taking RED-PCT his free testosterone levels went from low all the way to the high end of the spectrum. As for his estrogen levels, they went down to a more favorable level smack dab between 20-30pg/ml (see proof here).
Where You Want Your Estrogen Levels To Be: 20-30pg/ml
Typically, most men feel their best when their estrogen levels lie between 20-30 pg/ml in their blood work. This is the target “estrogen sweet spot” you want to shoot for to feel amazing and improve your quality of life substantially.
Taking 3 capsules of RED-PCT per day should be all that you need to boost your testosterone levels, while also bringing your estrogen levels down into the sweet spot and optimizing your hormones.
