MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 31, 2013) - Can the use of marijuana cause man boobs? According to an article Dr. Anthony Youn, a plastic surgeon from Detroit, wrote for CNN earlier this month, it can. The reason behind it is the drug's effect on hormone levels, causing an imbalance between testosterone and estrogen. "When the ratio between testosterone and estrogen tips in favor of estrogen, the body responds by creating excessive breast tissue. Hence, man boobs," explains Youn. Based on this theory it does not come as a surprise that "moobs" or gynecomasta, as the condition is officially called, is especially common in teenagers, affecting 60% of 14-year-old boys. What is surprising though is the fact that it is also found in 55% to 60% of men aged 50 and older. These numbers lead to the assumption that hormonal imbalance in men is not just a pot-related problem but a relatively wide-spread issue.
As men age, they tend to produce increasing levels of estrogen while the production of testosterone decreases. "Some of the symptoms routinely attributed to testosterone deficiency are actually partially or almost exclusively caused by the… [changing levels of] …estrogens," said Dr. Joel Finkelstein, an endocrinologist at Harvard Medical School. Both men and women make estrogen out of testosterone, and men make so much that they end up with at least twice as much estrogen as postmenopausal women. Too much estrogen may cause diabetes, heart attacks, prostate cancer, and a declined libido. In the past, testosterone has been blamed as the cause of prostate cancer, but a shift in thinking suggests that an imbalance of estrogens in the body plays a crucial role in preventing or causing prostate cancer. Following these scientific findings, Niwali.com, a leading health supplement manufacturer, decided to include Estrodex in their range of products.
Estrodex is a new ground breaking formula that is designed to optimize and support an anabolic environment by decreasing estrogen and increasing testosterone levels. This exclusive formulation aggressively combats heightened estrogen levels. Ultimately, Estrodex allows the user to get the benefits of heightened testosterone levels without the negative side-effects of estrogen, such as water retention and body-fat accumulation, that usually accompany heightened levels of testosterone in the body. Estrodex works by metabolizing active estrogens into inactive estrogen metabolites, coaxing estrogen at the actual estrogen receptor site in male breast tissue, and by freeing excess estrogen from the body.
