    Ab fat and test levels.






    I remember reading a few posts (cant seem to find them now) that higher ab fat would/could result in lower test levels. So would i be right to assume that lowering bf/ab fat to relatively low (say 10%?) number, would/could result in increased test levels?

    well fat cells contain large amount of the aromatase enzyme which is responsible for converting testosterone into estrogen. so reducing your bodyfat would lower the conversion of testosterone to estrogen

    aromatase and estrogen can be stored in adipose....this is the only logic I can think of behind that theory. I couldnt find anything on this topic that really said anything conclusive.
    My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.

    When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.

    Adipose tissue is a major, nonglandular site for the aromatization of androgens to estrogens.
