Soy A Male Libido Killer?

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

No, soy won’t give you man boobs or tank your T, dudes.

What is soy?

➡️A nutrient-dense plant-based protein source

➡️Member of the legume family

➡️Common soy foods: tofu, edamame, soy milk, soy-based protein powder

What’s the deal with soy & estrogen?

➡️Soy contains phytoestrogen, a plant estrogen.

➡️It’s similar to human estrogen, but with a much weaker effect.

➡️Phytoestrogen can WEAKLY bind to estrogen receptors in the body and cause either estrogen-like or anti-estrogen effects.

Soy protein has been shown to be as effective as whey/animal proteins when it comes to increasing muscle mass (in conjunction with a resistance training program).

Tofu Takeaway:

Current studies indicate soy (preferably minimally processed forms) foods can be safely consumed and enjoyed by MEN & WOMEN alike.
