Anti Estrogen Supplements
A dietary supplement, also known as food supplement or nutritional supplement, is a preparation intended to supplement the diet and provide nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, or amino acids, that may be missing or may not be consumed in sufficient quantities in a person's diet. Some countries define dietary supplements as foods, while ...Read more
What are some benefits and side- effects of anti-estrogen/anti-aromatase as a nutritional supplement?
None: An anti-aromatase drug given to a post-menopausal woman is de facto an "anti-estrogen", since aromatase is the enzyme which converts ovarian testosterone and adrenal androgens to estrogens. They effectively block stimulation of hormone-sensitive cancers, but they have no place as a nutritional supplement as they markedly interfere with bone metabolism. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: As it is unregulated by the fda men taking it for big prostates may find that the actual amount of the substance is quite variable from each manufacturer and from batch to batch. Do not waste your money using it as an antiestrogen - your physician can write for generic anastrazole if it is appropriate for you. ...Read more
Not clear: For patients on these drugs for breast cancer there is no downside to workouts. There may be some muscle or joint discomfort, but there is no danger for workout. Workouts are good for women on these drugs. The use in body builders is a bad ideas because of joint pain, cholesterol changes. Some are taken illegally to block side effects of androgen. In that case illegal and not smart! ...Read more
Hormones in food: Foods that contain phytoestrogens (weak Estrogens produced by plants) include vegetables, legumes (beans), seeds, dairy, and soy. Anti-estrogenic foods are foods that block estrogen include broccoli, buckwheat, cabbage, citrus fruits, corn, fruit (other than apples, cherries, dates and pomegranates), grapes, green beans, melons, onions, pears, pineapples, squash, rice, white flour, and tapioca. ...Read more
Neither: There is a huge amount of disinformation about foods being estrogenic or anti-estrogenic. It is almost all propaganda -- advertising and fringe politics -- rather than real science, and it's mostly just lies. I've seen a militant who makes false claims about chemicals estogenizing the environment & hurting men eating a tofu sandwich, which is among the highest sources of phytoestrogens. ...Read more
It may but not used: While it may help block growth of the breast cancers in women, it is generally not considered first line therapy for gynecomastia and is not indicated for this purpose. However, i recently had a patient whose endocrinologist prescribed this as an off label indication. You should first be fully evaluated by an endocrinologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Gynecomastia: Yes. With the administration of clomiphene, an antiestrogen, approximately 50% of patients achieve partial reduction in breast size, and approximately 20% of patients note complete resolution. Tamoxifen, an estrogen antagonist, is effective for recent-onset and tender gynecomastia. Up to 80% of patients report partial to complete resolution. Another drug is danazol. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The anti-estrogen drug aromasin (exemestane) is causing a lot of aches and pains. Is this normal?
No: However, Aromasin (exemestane) has a lot of side-effects, and joint pain is one of the most frequent, occurring in around 15% of people who are taking the drug. There are alternatives to this medication, but unfortunately they all share the same side-effects. However, that said, it is never certain that you as an individual would not find an alternative less troublesome. Ask your doctor about this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If taking an anti-estrogen/test booster ( nolvadren xt) would I suffer any rebound effects of raised E when stopping supplementation?
Yes: Any time you take something that affects your natural production of hormones, there is typically a "withdrawal" that occurs as your body tries to return to its natural state. This is especially true with any "supplement" that affects testosterone production. That is why most of these supplements are banned or become banned once the governing bodies learn about them. ...Read more
I recently started androgel,Should I be concerned about an increase in estrogen? And is it okay to take an anti estrogen with trt therapy?
Good question: testosterone can & does convert to estrogen (estradiol), so increasing testosterone can result in increasing estrogen. Testosterone can compete with estrogen, but a surplus will make it more likely to increase the enzyme aromatase, which converts T to E. Additionally, testosterone from an external source will generally shut your own production down significantly after about 3-5 weeks ...Read more
I am going ro start 200mg of test. Do I need an anti-estrogen? My doctor won't prescribe one. Thanks.
Tough decision: Testosterone metabolism will yield estrogen which may increase your breast tissue. The addition of an anti estrogen is a debatable issue because the estrogen gives you some cardiac protection and the addition of an estrogen blocker may allow for the development of cardiac disease. I would use the test and follow your lipid profiles every 6 mo or so. ...Read more
