Default How do I lower estrogen levels/increase testosterone levels?

I believe that my doctor said that the breast tissue that has formed in my chest is because of increased estrogen levels during puberty that never went away. My goal is also to increase vascularity (I know, low BF% but sometimes people have low vascularity even when their bodyfat% is low) and someone said that lowering estrgoen levels can increase vascularity.

So, I'm thinking that maybe I can kill two birds with one stone. Are there any SAFE (no drugs!) ways (safe for a 15 year old like me) to lower estrogen or raise testosterone levels? I'm talking about training techniques and/or nutrition.

Thanks for any help.

BTW, I beleive someone said taking Vitamin B3 (Niacin) would help vascularity, is this true?

*Note*: Message posted in both nutrition and training forums because I'm looking for training advice and nutrition advice.

You have to eat food and do exercises that increases your testosterone levels.

Exercises:
Deadlifts
Squats (those are the best)

Food:
Search Google.com: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&a...tosterone+diet
Get whey protein, stay away from soy protein.

There are some supplements out there you can buy, anti-estrogen, but I doubt it will do anything else but emptying your wallet. Just stay basic, buy good food, train smart...it's the best.

Really? About how much a day.

I already drink between 3-5 bottles of 24 ounces a day (72-120 ounces)

<font color="ff0000"> I recommend bodyweight times .55 ( .66 if you're really active ). Whenever I drink a lot of water I am extremely vascular. Also, have you ever had to get blood drawn and the nurse couldn't find a vein? Did they ask you if you had been drinking enough water? </font color>
