Daily broccoli: pros and cons


#1

2 and a half years ago after quitted finasteride, improving little by little, I have again experienced impotence and watery semen after 5 days eating a lot of broccoli. Broccoli does not inhibit 5arII but prevents the formation of DHT and strogen, both necessary for male sexual activity. I can have an erection when I choose and good amount of semen, but I´m sure that too broccoli during 5 days has caused a little relapse due to my PFS condition.

I just want to inform, broccoli is a super food and probably best vegeteable of all, but eat a lot suppresses much of the DHT. Hopefully I had eaten daily broccoli instead Finasteride 4 years ago.

***Ok I think that CRUDE broccoli can be good for PFS but twice or three a week at moderate doses, its a superfood, detoxifies sistem and regulate hormones, reduces estrogen and DHT, so consume too much can aggravates temporally PFS sexual effects, I believe this but I don´t want demonize broccoli, really broccoli can help in all other symptoms.

Didnyou ever tested your levels of T, DHT and E2?


#3

No, but its the first time after 2 and a half years without finasteride when I had felt totally impotent. Maybe can be I have consumed some sugar these days but broccoli is an potent inhibitor of DHT. Now, after 2 days without broccoli I had check my erections are ok already.

Thanks for the info @finashit. Can you tell us how much you ate?

How much was too much for you?

Maybe 1 kg (2.2 lb) in 4-5 days


#6

Thanks for the warning.

If you (or anyone reading) are able to pinpoint any other food causing negative effects, please make a thread about it.
