We all know that estrogen stimulates breast tissue as well. You know what not to do if you are prone to water retention due to the estrogenic affects of some anabolics? You know, your body is the type that holds a little more fat, you lose some vascularity when you do things such as test and d-bol, etc. Don’t combine aromatizing drugs with drol!! Think about it. Oh wait. Yeah, the male breast has receptors for estrogen as well. You probably knew that but hang on. Okay…now you have drol exerting a progestagenic affect at the male progesterone receptors in the breast, and, elevated estrogen from whatever other aromatizing anabolic you are using affecting estrogen receptors in the male breast. Now, personally, I’ve always been a breast guy but…are you getting the picture. You are combining two of the most significant and potent hormonal affects together, in the male body, that are responsible for breast tissue growth stimulation in the female. Don’t do it!!
Pumpkin seed oil has also been proven to inhibit the production of 5-alpha-reductase. Pumpkin seeds contain not one but two DHT blockers. The first is beta-sitosterol, a phytosterol, which is structurally like cholesterol. The other is a steroid, delta-7-sterine. A 2014 Chinese study evaluated the effect of a daily dose of 400mg of pumpkin seed oil on 38 men with AGA. A randomized equal number of men received a placebo. After 24 weeks, scientists discovered a 40% mean increase in hair count in the group receiving the pumpkin seed oil as compared to the placebo group.
