Experts Answer: Is Soy Bad For Men? –

Is Soy Bad For Men?

Are soy products bad for men? I was reading a book called “Sex, Diet and Health” by the author, Dr. Robert C. Atkins, M.D., and it stated that soy products could actually be harmful to men. He states that they can cause problems like premature ejaculation, low sperm count, erectile dysfunction, etc.

    Unless you are an Asian who consumes soy daily, the chances are yes.

    If you consume soy products on a daily basis, your body will begin to absorb more phytoestrogens, which are problematic for both sexes. You retain more water and this can lead to other problems like PMS or breast cancer in women. Plus, high levels of it can also mimic male hormone levels and disrupt natural estrogen levels in men.

    The bad news is that processed food is full of soy, so if you’re really worried about it then be mindful when picking out what you eat.

    It’s not bad for everyone, but it’s not the best thing to eat regularly.

    I would stay away from any compounds that disrupt estrogen unless they’re designed to do so intentionally in things like testosterone therapy. Soy contains phytoestrogens called isoflavones, which act like estrogen in your body.

    Some people can detect fewer circulating levels of “male” hormones when they cut soy out of their diet, while others notice no change at all.

    It depends.

    If soy is consumed in its natural, unprocessed form, it’s not bad for men. However, the more processed and the less organic a food item is – the worse it can be for you!

    Processed foods often contain chemicals and preservatives that use genetically modified organisms to produce them. And genetically modified organisms have been found to cause health problems such as cancer and autism.

    In the right quantity, soy is actually a great food to consume. For men, soy is also a good source of protein.

    There’s been some concern in the past about how soy affects our hormonal levels. It used to be thought that soy increased estrogen levels and that it might impact testosterone levels in women or lower sperm production in men.

    However, recent studies have disproved this idea after they showed no link between consuming any amount of tofu and having lowered testosterone levels in healthy young Japanese males who work out regularly – at least not when compared with other sources of protein such as meat or milk products.

    Furthermore, there was no effect on total or free testosterone from three days worth of soymilk consumption either.

    Soy is perfectly fine for men to ingest. There is no scientific proof stating otherwise.

  6. 0

    No, soy provides a good source of protein for men. While some experts may suggest men should avoid soy because of the presence of phytoestrogen, there seem to more studies and evidence to suggest that testosterone levels are not affected by soy intake.

  7. 0

    It’s often been said that soy affects a man’s sexual health and lowers his testosterone levels. But that’s far from the truth because soy is very high in proteins and is good for anyone’s diet, man or woman. Besides, soy contains all the essential amino acids. Also, studies have shown that consuming soy doesn’t alter a man’s testosterone levels.

  8. 0

    Soy is in fact a very healthy thing to eat, it provides a good amount of protein and fat that are healthy for your body. Its also an attractive alternative if you’re looking to build muscles but don’t like red meats.
