A recent study has linked high estrogen levels in men with increased mortality rates due to chronic heart failure.
While estrogen is commonly thought of as the female hormone, men produce it naturally at low levels.
But when the ratio of estrogen and testosterone are out of balance, men were 317% more likely to die during the 3-year study.
In another study published by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 3014 men aged 69-80 years had their testosterone and estrogen levels measured over a period of 4.5 years.
Men with low testosterone levels were almost twice as likely to die (a 96% increase in mortality) compared to men in optimal ranges.
The science is clear: men with low testosterone levels and high estrogen levels have far greater health risks than those that do not.
That's why more and more doctors are urging men to increase testosterone levels naturally and safely.
