Adopt These Lifestyle Tips to Keep Your Hormones in Check


September 7, 2016

Low testosterone is one of man’s greatest fears. But the truth is, 1 in 4 men over the age of 30 suffer from low-T. Some men decide to take pills in an effort to stabilize their hormones, but often times there is a lack of results. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to naturally find your hormone balance and tackle low-T all by yourself!

Keeping Off the Weight
Keeping yourself in shape is the best place to start when it comes to maintaining hormone balance. There is an enzyme that is present in your fat cells known as “aromatase.” This enzyme converts testosterone into estrogen in typical female areas like breasts, hips and thighs.

Exercising More Frequently
A combination of aerobic and resistance training is the best way to stay in shape and increase testosterone production. In addition to boosting testosterone, exercise also has a positive impact on your energy levels and work ethic.  

Adopt Good Sleeping Habits
Low testosterone levels have been linked to poor sleeping habits in men. The more time spent in REM (Rapid Eye Movement), the more testosterone is produced. Those of you who are only getting 1-2 hours of deep sleep per night are putting your hormones in a tough spot.

Put the Drink Away
Studies show that excessive alcohol use actually aids in the process of turning testosterone into estrogen. Not to mention the calories in alcohol will also lead to weight gain that can trigger hormone imbalance. There are really no positives when it comes to alcohol and your health.

Change Your Diet
You should include the following testosterone-friendly foods in your everyday diet:

  • Green Tea
  • Multi- colored fruits
  • Nuts
  • Flax seed
  • Soy products  

If you suffer from low testosterone and increased estrogen levels, your body has likely already started to change. If diet and exercise just aren’t cutting it, turn to the experts at Wall Street Cosmetic Surgery for the next steps. We will advise you on what we think will work best for you and then proceed from there.
