If you want to learn how estrogen blockers work, how effective they are, and what kind of side effects they cause, then you want to listen to this episode.

You’re probably here because you want to gain muscle or lose fat faster and you’re wondering if estrogen blockers can help.

You’ve probably also seen fantastical claims about what these drugs and supplements can do to your physique.

You’re not alone.

Thousands of others are searching about estrogen blockers every day, too, because they’ve heard the same blarney that brought you here.

And in this episode, we’re going to get to the bottom of it all.

Now, the war against estrogen is at a fever pitch these days because it’s riding on the coattails of its big brother, testosterone, which is also on a lot people’s minds.

It’s common knowledge that raising your testosterone levels can help you gain muscle and strength and lose fat faster, which is why more and more people are snapping up testosterone booster supplements and signing up for testosterone replacement therapy.

Most people also know that raising testosterone levels also raises estrogen levels, and that high estrogen levels is generally associated with higher levels of body fat, erectile dysfunction, and feminizing effects like gynecomastia.

Furthermore, it’s also often assumed that lowering estrogen levels in and of itself can improve body composition and virility, and especially in people that are “estrogen dominant” and thus incapable of gaining any considerable amount of muscle and strength.

Is all the estrogen hype warranted, though? And are estrogen blocking drugs and supplements effective, safe, and legal, like many people claim?

Well, here’s the long story short:

Synthetic estrogen blockers absolutely work. With the right drugs, you can plunge your estrogen to rock-bottom levels.

Unfortunately, however, that isn’t going to help you build a better physique, and it’s going to screw up your health, to boot.

And what about natural estrogen blockers?

Well, they’re even more worthless in that they won’t even significantly impact your estrogen or testosterone levels, let alone help you gain muscle or lose fat faster.

By the end of this episode, you’re going to understand all this and more, so let’s start at the top…
