As men the older we get the lower our testosterone levels are drastically falling.
Quite frankly we are at war with outside forces designed to fill our bodies with toxic chemicals…
One of the most dangerous man made toxins is MSG…
(Monosodium Glutamate – Glutamate is a primary neurotransmitter used by our neurons).
This silent little devil is found in all types of so called healthy foods that you most likely are ingesting every single day.
I was shocked when I found out most whey protein is loaded up with large amounts of it.
Now the big food manufacturers are very secretive…
You will not find MSG anywhere on the labels. But what you will find if you look closely is 2 ingredients:
Glutamic Acid and its partner in crime Aspartic Acid.
These 2 ingredients are called excitotoxins and are a watered down version of monosodium glutamate and aspartame.
Ecitotoxins such as MSG in food, and aspartates in diet drinks, have been shown through scientific studies to cause hormonal and reproductive abnormalities through puberty and beyond.
Here is more bad news for you…
There is a specific area of the brain that MSG and aspartates directly effect:
This area of your brain couples together the nervous system and the endocrine system and is
responsible for controlling an immense number of bodily functions such as stimulating the pituitary gland to release vital hormones that as a man we hold near and dear to our hearts.
These hormones which include:
Leutinizing hormone(LH) – This hormone in males is also called interstitial cell-stimulating hormone that triggers the production of testosterone.
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) – FSH regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of the body. FSH and LH work synergistically in reproduction.
Both of these hormone strongly effect the natural production of testosterone
It is safe to say that anything that contains MSG, excitotoxins, or aspartates are detrimental to your hormones and should be avoided at all costs.
So by now you may be asking…
Is it safe to consume Whey Protein?
Whey is great for adding lean muscle and burning fat.
Just be sure you purchase a whey that is 100% natural with no artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors.
As for safeguarding your testosterone…
