How Commonly Used Products Can Lower Testosterone Levels

Hormones determine what makes a human a man. We're specifically discussing testosterone. This hormone influences, among other things, a man's bone density, body composition, ability to gain muscle mass, and the general integrity and longevity of his sperm.

Unfortunately, testosterone levels are constantly fluctuating. Though they peak during puberty and a man's mid-20s, they immediately begin to decline, decreasing in both quantity and quality as the man ages. However, there are other reasons for a man's testosterone to drop. One of the most dangerous is exposure to petrochemicals.

Testosterone and Chemicals

Petrochemical refers to any petroleum product or byproduct, such as ethanol, monomers, aromatic hydrocarbons, resins, fuels, and thermoplastics. This list includes millions of items (and their packaging) used around the world. Petrochemicals, can enter our bodies through the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the liquid we drink (particularly if it comes from a plastic bottle).

The main problem with these compounds is that they are frequently converted into "xenoestrogens" once they enter the body. As the name implies, all of these are foreign, synthetic estrogen hormones that can interfere with the synthesis of our endogenous hormones, particularly in men.

Indeed, studies show that the average male sperm count has dropped by 50% since the 1960s, and many experts believe this is due in large part to petrochemicals and the xenoestrogens they produce.

The Options Available

If you suspect you have low testosterone, make sure you don't have any medical issues first. Examples include genital atrophy, hypothalamic dysfunction, and pituitary dysfunction. After that, you should immediately begin eliminating any xenoestrogen-producing products from your diet and lifestyle. Our testosterone doctors at Internal Healing and Wellness, MD, Houston advise patients in The Woodlands to take the following steps:

  • Whenever possible, eat locally grown organic products
  • Look for meat and milk that are hormone-free
  • Use only fragrance-free "skin contact" products made with natural ingredients.
  • Avoid Fabric conditioner, dryer sheets, dishwashing liquid, and other scented cleaning agents
  • Get rid of your plastic water bottles and replace them with reusable metal or g;ass water bottles
  • Avoid processed foods, especially frozen meals in plastic containers that can be microwaved
