Tumeric: Say No to Moobs aka Gyno

Bodybuilders have long used turmeric whose active ingredient curcumin is anti-inflammatory and beneficial for recovery and pain relief. But, this fantastic compound is now being touted for another benefit of importance to the bodybuilding community. That's relief from the dreaded gynecomastia.

While doses would have to be high and results may vary, this natural spice could definitely be a good addition to the insurance against the negatives of an anabolic lifestyle.

Try 1,000-3,000 mg per day. Add a dash of pepper or buy a product that contains bioperine for increased bioavailability.

You best options for gynecomastia would definitely be a visit to the doctor for either Letrozole or Tamoxifen (Nolvadex).
