Fish oil And increased testosterone
by Susan jo
Is fish oil really good for some women. I read it raises testosterone and lowers SHBG. In my opinion not a good thing. I just remembered my one supplement has it and noticed excess chin hair and other symptoms. This is my opinion on trying to increase progesterone. You say it stimulates testosterone first, which will increase estrogen (correct?)then you add fish oil to the mix, that is a double wammy. Now to further aggravate it all eating other foods that reduce SHBG would make symptoms worse add soooooo much harder to increase progesterone. So if that taking fish oil increases testosterone and decreases SHBG is true then your losing leverage to increasing progesterone which increases SHBG to reduce testosterone. So what im saying is at least for me no fish oil for now. Please advise if im wrong of course.
