Top Unbelivable Foods Men Should Avoid
Avoid Licorice Because It Lowers Testosterone Licorice root has been linked to lower testosterone in several studies, including a 2004 study from the University of Padua in Italy. The study, led by Dr. D. Armanini, examined the role of licorice in lowering testosterone in 9 healthy women. The study found that licorice blocks testosterone due to the blockage of a compound called "17-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase". For this reason, the study suggested that licorice might be helpful in reversing diseases such as polycystic overy syndrome in which women grow facial hair like men.
