Before I get started with this video I wanted to direct you all to my Instagram page, which I’ve been consistently posting to for a little over a week now. I’ve linked to it below, so please head over and give me a follow! It’s feeling a bit lonely there right now.
I really thought I was done with the subject of soy and hormones, but here I am rehashing it… yet again. Once more fighting a misconception that just won’t give up the damned ghost.
Recently, a story began making rounds that a veterinarian, a Dr. James Stangle of South Dakota, made the claim that soy protein, as found in plant-based burgers such as the Impossible Burger, feminizes men by increasing their estrogen levels.
I want to start by saying that I hate the word “superfood”, but I won’t deny that it’s an attention-grabbing buzzword, so there’s that. And I do want people to watch my videos. I mean, after all, I don’t make them to collect the proverbial dust!
Anyhow, I got an interesting paper to share with you all this week, that was published this past March in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Many of you may remember my video from February where I shared research about the seed nigella sativa, which was found to increase testosterone, sperm count, and ejaculate volume, among other markers, significantly after just 3 months of daily consumption.
