Lybrate-user try these natural remedy: 1. Turmeric turmeric is a well-known home remedy for gynecomastia. This spice can increase the testosterone hormone levels in males. When the level of testosterone becomes high, large breasts in men naturally reduce in size. Plus, turmeric promotes liver health and helps burn fat. Add 1 or 2 teaspoons of turmeric to a cup of water and heat it for 10 minutes. Drink it 2 or 3 times a day and especially before going to bed. Repeat daily and within a few weeks you will notice the changes. 2. Flaxseeds also contain omega-3 fatty acids that help raise testosterone and reduce estrogen levels. Plus, they contain higher concentrations of lignans that balance estrogen activity and have antiestrogenic qualities. Flaxseeds also aid in the removal of harmful toxins from the body. Add 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed to a glass of hot water and consume it daily until you see improvement. Another option is to take 1 or 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil daily for a few weeks. You can also add ground flaxseed to smoothies and baked goods such as breads and muffins. 3. Exercise can help reduce gynecomastia as it helps balance hormone levels. Plus, certain exercises help build chest and torso muscles. They also help reduce overall body fat, which could be contributing to pseudogynecomastia. Pseudogynecomastia causes feminization of the male breast due to a buildup of fat. Include cardiovascular, weight lifting and elliptical exercises in your exercise routine. Swimming, especially the breast stroke, is effective for reducing excess fat. Jogging and walking are good forms of exercise that also help burn a lot of calories and body fat.
