Home Remedies for Gynecomastia (breast tissue growth in men)

Turmeric

Turmeric contains curcumin with potential anti-estrogenic effects. Take 1 tsp of turmeric with water daily. For enhanced benefits, consider a turmeric supplement with 500-1000mg curcumin after consulting a doctor.

Flaxseeds

Rich in omega-3s and lignans with anti-estrogenic properties. Consume 2-3 tbsp of ground flaxseeds daily. Mix into smoothies, sprinkle on salads, or add to yogurt.

Zinc

Essential for testosterone production. Consider taking a 15-30mg zinc supplement daily or eat zinc-rich foods. Always consult a healthcare provider before starting supplements.

Fish Oil

Omega-3s in fish oil may balance hormones. Take a supplement containing 1000-2000mg EPA and DHA or eat fatty fish like salmon 2-3 times a week.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Compounds in these vegetables might reduce estrogen. Include a serving in your meals at least 3-4 times a week. Cook lightly to retain beneficial properties.

Dandelion Tea

Supports liver function and detoxification. Drink 1-2 cups of dandelion tea daily. Always consult if on other medication due to potential interactions.

Fenugreek

May increase testosterone levels. Consider fenugreek supplements of 500-1000mg daily after discussing with a healthcare provider.

Tribulus Terrestris

May enhance testosterone production. Consider a daily supplement of 250-750mg, but consult a healthcare provider first for appropriate dosages.

Green Tea

Can aid in fat loss. Drink 2-3 cups daily. If opting for a supplement, choose one containing 250-500mg green tea extract.

Passionflower

Contains chrysin that may reduce estrogen. Brew 1-2 cups of passionflower tea daily or take a supplement after consulting a doctor.

Tongkat Ali

Studies suggest it might enhance testosterone. After consulting, consider supplements in the range of 200-300mg daily.

Avoiding Alcohol

Alcohol may raise estrogen. Limit to 1-2 drinks a week or eliminate entirely.

Regular Exercise

Cardio and strength training help reduce body fat and balance hormones. Engage in moderate to intense activity for at least 30-45 minutes, 4-5 times a week.

BPA-Free Containers

BPA may mimic estrogen. Use BPA-free containers, especially for food storage. Avoid microwaving in any plastic, even if BPA-free.

Vitamin D

Critical for testosterone. Consider a supplement of 1000-2000 IU daily or get 10-30 minutes of midday sun several times a week. Always consult a doctor before starting supplementation.

Go Organic

Pesticides and hormones in non-organic foods can affect estrogen. Opt for organic A2 dairy, and no-pesticide vegetables and fruits.

Milk Thistle

Supports liver detoxification. Consider a supplement with 150-200mg silymarin (the active compound) daily after consultation.

Ginger

Preliminary research suggests benefits for testosterone. Add fresh ginger to meals or consider a supplement of 500-1000mg daily.

Pomegranate

May have anti-estrogenic effects. Drink 8-12 oz of unsweetened pomegranate juice or eat one whole fruit daily.

Dietary Fiber

Helps excrete excess estrogen. Aim for 30-40g daily. Increase intake with whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Anti-inflammatory properties. Take a supplement containing 1000-2000mg EPA and DHA or eat fatty fish, chia seeds, or flaxseeds regularly.
