Why Men Should Care About Estrogen

For a long time, estrogen was considered only important to women. Thanks to research, we now know that is not the case.

So, Why Should Men Care About Estrogen?

Two words: sex drive.

Yes, testosterone is a major player when it comes to “manhood,” but estrogen may be just as important.  Both hormones were found to affect a man’s sex drive, with deficiencies in both leading to a low libido.

Furthermore, estrogen deficiencies are linked to increases in a man’s body fat, which in turn can lead to a higher chance of high blood pressure, heart issues, and type 2 diabetes.


What You Can Do to Fix It

Balance is key.

As noted, not enough estrogen contributes to a slew of medical conditions. But you should also know that too much estrogen can cause heart problems and feminization of the body.

To help men achieve a proper estrogen level, we recommend a two-pronged approach.

  1. As is the case with many medical conditions, a healthy lifestyle can help. This means eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly!
  2. Older men may also want to consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT is a restorative medicine technique that naturally optimizes testosterone, estrogen and many other hormone levels without causing the nasty side effects associated with prescription medications.

Because balance is key, and because every person is different, we will work closely with you to develop a personalized BHRT program that not only gives you your sex drive back, but improves your overall quality of life.
