estrogen/gyno

Ive been doing a little re search on, what can cause high estrogen in males, as i seem to get more flarey or otchy maybe around the nips sometimes if im really hot, but couldnt find any link.
 
also was looking at what can lower estrogen 

8. Have more broccoli

Broccoli contains one of the strongest anti-estrogen supplements, DIM, so eating broccoli more often will help to lower the level of estrogen in the body. It helps the body process estrogen so the kidneys do not have to do all the work.
 

6. Take zinc supplement

Zinc can slow the change of testosterone into estrogen so taking a zinc supplement can help lower the level of estrogen in a man’s body. Other antioxidants will also help slow the conversion of testosterone.
 
i knew broccoli helped lower estrogen , was wondering if any one east a large amount for this reasons and noticed any affects 
also the zinc would the slow change of test into estrogen be a problem ,
as correct me if im wrong but is it not the estrogen that helps gains etc ,i,e killing off all estrogen will slow gains dramatically 
or am i way off

    I can't remember why but I did read somewhere to avoid broccoli if you can, I was looking up what veg you should and shouldn't eat before and after workouts I can't remember but I sure it was a no to broccoli.

    But my mind could be imagining this

    Broccoli is a Cruciferous vegetable, it contains phytochemicals that help block oestrogen.
    Other Cruciferous vegetables include: Cauliflower, cabbage, brussells sprouts, bok choy, kale, collard greens and turnips.
    Yes completely blocking/removing oestrogen is not a good idea for a lot of reasons, we need a certain level of oestrogen to function. 
    The most effective way to tackle gyno while on cycle is to take a low dose of Tamoxifen (Nolvadex)
     
    Zinc does have some effect on Testosterone, but this more related to sexual function rather than anabolism.

    I'm pretty sure you could eat a bucket full of broccoli every day and not have any meaningful change in estrogen levels.
     
    It's silly that people still buy the nonsense that certain foods will have any serious impact on their sex hormones. If you want to change your hormone levels enough to make any noticeable difference you need drugs.
