Does the herb Sage increase estrogen in men? what about eggs?
they both contain the same estrogenic properties as soy i guess.
Phytoestrogens are in a lot of foods. Its probably best to steer clear of the most concentrated foods like soy but there is no way to avoid them entirely and you might not want to because they can actually have positive effects as well.
Avoiding xenoestrogens from chemicals would be a much better idea.
Garlic (and onions, leeks, etc) contain a lot of phytoestrogens as well. Flax seed oil is probably the best know source, second to birth control pills only. But...
The difference between soy and garlic/sage/onion/etc is that the first is considered as the main ingredient of a recipe for many people (read: vegetarians and vegans). Additionally, it is probably what they end up eating 3-4 times per day. The others are just spices, "flavor enhancers", so you just add some in your recipe: enough for the estrogens to have a beneficial effect (phytoestrogens are not 100% bad), still not enough to promote gynecomastia in men.
Sage is used as seasoning, one or two leaves will hardly give you tits, relax.
Damina, your posts crack me up. What a way with words, lol!
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
