The effects of aromatized testosterone on things like body fat and sexual function is often underestimated and downplayed. What effect does estradiol have on the body? How does estradiol affect sexual and orgasmic function? Why is estradiol such a game changer for fat loss? On this episode, Dr. Neal Rouzier shares more on the studies that show the benefits of estrogen in men.

By blocking estrogen, the things you are trying to prevent are the things you end up causing. -Dr. Neal Rouzier

Three Takeaways

  • When the aromatization of testosterone to estradiol is inhibited, body fat increases.
  • The “nocebo” effect: when you don’t have a side effect or problem till you read about it.
  • AIs cause significant decreases in sexual desire and orgasmic function, and increases in erectile dysfunction.
  • Estradiol administration without androgen blockade benefits BPA symptoms, size of the prostate, and prostate cancer.

At the start of the show, we talked about how the inhibition of the aromatization of testosterone to estradiol increases body fat. Next we talked about how estradiol plays into visceral fat, insulin sensitivity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease. We also talked about the role of estradiol in the treatment of prostate cancer.

We also discussed:

  • AI and nipple sensitivity
  • The “nocebo” effect
  • Estradiol and orgasmic function

Every study shows there are massive benefits if you raise estrogen, and no study has ever shown harm. Measuring estradiol is helpful in assessing the risks of sexual dysfunction, bone loss, or fat accumulation. Estrogen is actually the key to unlocking so many health functions for men, including cardiovascular health. There is a marked increase in intra-abdominal fat with aromatase inhibition. Ultimately it could lead to an increase in cardiovascular disease with long-term estrogen deficiency, which will cause even more harm down the line.
