Is it safe for men to take trans-resveratrol supplement?Because it has phytoestrogens

Is it safe for men to take trans-resveratrol supplement?Because it has phytoestrogens

Probably safe: I believe that resveratrol is very safe for men to take but long-term studies on the pros & cons are lacking. Many common foods/herbs are phytoestrogens, such as soy. The benefits seem to outweigh the risks & mild phytoestrogens like resveratrol may protect us from much more potent chemical phytoestrogens from plastics/fire retardants etc. See http://www.Ncbi.

What is phytoestrogen and what ca that do to fibroids?

What is phytoestrogen and what ca that do to fibroids?

Not much: Phytoestrogens are Estrogens derived from plant products such as black cohosh. These are all relatively weak Estrogens that are used after the menopause. The reason is that the normal estrogen level from a normal cycle is 100 times greater than the dose from these over the counter Estrogens and therefore has minimal effect on a premenopausal woman and on fibroids. ...Read more

Would phytoestrogens make my breast grow?

Would phytoestrogens make my breast grow?

Maybe: You need to know that the amounts in food probably have little or no effect on anyone, and that the few commercial preparations that have undergone study have yielded mostly negative results for everything for which they've been tested.

Can using fenugreek cause the penis to shrink from the phytoestrogens?

No: This is a good question. "Phytoestrogens" are a politicized topic and there's a huge amount of disinformation and utter nonsense. It's a component of some ethnic cuisines and there are a couple of dubious-at-best junk-journal articles claiming it increases intelligence and helps women lactate.
