Exercise and diet

I would not recommend any pill or supplements that say they can address gynecomastia, since it there are none that are FDA approved. The safest and most effective method is surgery, and you can also try exercising and diet. 

Exercise won't help gynecomastia

If you have true gynecomastia, male breast development, exercise won't help. If you only have excess fat without excess glandular tissue, weight loss may help some. Men with gynecomastia have firm breast tissue behind the nipple and the nipple is often bigger or puffier than desired. Surgical removal is the treatment of choice.
