Vitamin E is often used as a natural preservative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant. But these are just minor side-benefits of vitamin E.
Vitamin E has many anti-estrogenic effects that resemble those of progesterone.
It reduces expression of the enzyme aromatase, which converts the male hormone testosterone to the female hormone estrogen.
By reducing aromatase expression, vitamin E reduces the production of estrogen, and also increases the availability of testosterone.
By both increasing testosterone and reducing estrogen, vitamin E has a double-whammy effect on helping you to lose your man boobs.
But it does more.
Vitamin E also blocks the estrogen receptor. It does this so effectively that a study found once the vitamin E had blocked the estrogen receptor, additions of even very high doses of estrogen could NOT restore estrogenic breast cancer cell growth.
The study compared the effectiveness of vitamin E to the medical estrogen receptor blocking drug tamoxifen and found 100 μM of vitamin E to be as effective as 10 μM of tamoxifen.
While tamoxifen comes with a whole host of different side-effects, large population studies on natural vitamin E supplementation showed few side effects even at doses as high as 3,200 mg/day (3,200 IU/day).
This a common finding with natural substances that were designed by mother nature–they have few if any side effects even at very high doses. Artificial substances like pharmaceutical drugs on the other hand, are full of a multitude of different side-effects–because we do not understand the human body well enough to be able to formulate something that agrees with it completely.
Vitamin E also prevents degeneration of the testicles, brain, and muscles.
Very importantly for man boobs, vitamin E is one of very few substances we know of that can reverse fibrosis.
Let me explain why this is important.
After you've had your man boobs for over 2 to 3 years, if you have enlarged breast glands (which cause puffy and producing nipples), they undergo a process called fibrosis, which most doctors will tell you is irreversible and can only be corrected via surgery.
Where estrogen leads to fibrosis through excessive blood clotting, there is clear evidence that vitamin E prevents and cures fibrosis.
By reversing fibrosis, vitamin E can potentially make puffy and protruding nipples more reversible.
I'll write more about different ways you can take vitamin E in the future. Meanwhile, an excellent way to help get rid of man boobs with vitamin E, is to take it in combination with a good progesterone cream.
As well as having its own multitude of benefits for helping you lose man boobs, vitamin E is the best-known delivery agent for progesterone, progesterone being perhaps the most perfect anti-estrogen hormone.
