Have you ever wondered why when you hit a certain age you can’t lose weight no matter how hard you try? Pretty depressing right? Well, through my research I have found one of the big things keeping you from losing weight is too much estrogen. YES, you’ve read it right!
Do you know what happens when you have too much estrogen clogging up your system? It will confuse your body and wreak havoc on your hormonal balance making it hard to lose weight.
You know, how you have that spare tire around your middle section. Well, don’t be frustrated because that’s very common in people that have high levels of estrogen in their body. In actuality, both men and women can develop high levels of estrogen which can affect their overall health and sexual development and function.
You might say, where did that come from? Well, let me tell you some of the places. It can come from plastics, birth control pills, hormone replacement pills, soy, seeds, nuts, and beans just to name a few.
Too much estrogen in women can also cause menstrual problems, such as:
- irregular periods
- light spotting
- heavy bleeding
- more severe symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, or PMS
Moreover, females with high estrogen can experience other symptoms, including:
- cold hands and feet
- difficulty sleeping
- hair loss
- low sex drive
- mood changes, depression, or anxiety
- problems with memory
- swollen or tender breasts
- noncancerous breast lumps
- uterine fibroid
Symptoms of high estrogen in males can include:
- erectile dysfunction
- enlarged breasts, or gynecomastia
As a matter of fact, some research suggests that men with this condition may experience depression.
