I’d like to raise awareness of the issue of libido loss and erectile dysfunction.
I’ve been using Huel for over 18 months gradually at first, one shake a day, and around that time I also noticed a gradual loss in my sex drive + performance ability.
I thought perhaps this is normal, I just turned 30, and about a year ago the pandemic hit - not a very sexy time.
In the last few months I stepped up my Huel intake to form 80-90% of my diet. I love the efficiency, consistency and time it saves. I think it’s great. Apart from. Libido = dead. Absolute nil.
It was only very recently that I saw there might be a link after hearing about phytoestrogens in flaxseed. I have seen other threads on this forum where people argue that this is not a concern. But in my experience Huel is very likely the cause as it the one thing I can pinpoint to have changed in my life and corresponds exactly with the timing.
I am now, of course, quite concerned about lasting effects. I have ordered a home testosterone test and will stop consuming Huel, which is sad for me as I loved it. But it is not worth it.
