Information for bodybuilders.
In men, excessive estrogen can cause gynecomastia, enlargement and formation of female like breasts in men (gyno/bitch-tits) by binding to estrogen receptors in the nipples area. Estrogen may also interfere with testosterone production in men and may cause libido (sex drive) problems. Other side effects of excessive estrogen include: water retention (edema), impotence (in men) and acne. The highest concentration of estrogen receptors in the body is found in the breasts and nipple area.
That is the reason for potential gynecomastia problems in men and breast cancer in women. Anti estrogens work by binding to the estrogen receptors and by doing so, they prevent harmful estrogen from binding to these receptor.
Hair Loss Problem And Cure.
Hair loss can start with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb. Later, it can progress to a bare scalp. Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp and can be the result of heredity, certain medications or an underlying medical condition. Anyone - men, women and children - can experience hair loss. Some people prefer to let their baldness run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the medications and surgical procedures that are available to treat hair loss.
