Natural Testosterone Boosters
How To Boost Testosterone Naturally
If you are looking for the best “natural” testosterone booster, the answer is going to be a combination of the methods below.
Testosterone Boosting Foods
Yes, your diet is one of the first places to start. Losing weight can help raise your testosterone as well as lower your estrogen levels. Eating healthy fats, like mono- and poly-unsaturated fats found in nuts and avocadoes can also give your testosterone levels a boost. Here are some more foods that boost testosterone or suppress estrogen:
Oysters –full of zinc, helps create muscle and needed for testosterone production
Eggs – the egg yolk is loaded with important vitamins
Garlic – contains allicin which may boost your testosterone
Broccoli – contains indole-3-carbinol which reduces estrogen levels
Strength Training Boosts Testosterone
Weight training has been shown to boost testosterone levels. Using heavy weights while doing compound exercises that work a large number of muscles will have the most benefit.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Boosts Testosterone
HIIT training, like sprinting, has been proven to increase testosterone levels. On the other hand, research has shown that conventional steady state cardio will decrease testosterone levels and burn muscle. There are a variety of HIIT workouts out there, but the principal is that you go extremely hard or fast for a short burst and then you recover. Continue to repeat this process anywhere from 4-30
Vitamins Can Boost Testosterone
Vitamin D – Over half of Americans are Vitamin D deficient. Research is showing that it is better for your health to be at the optimal levels of 90-100 nmol/L rather than just normal levels of 50-75nmol/L. The best source for Vitamin D is the sun, but most researchers agree 3000-5000 IU per day will normalize deficient levels. There is a possibility for toxicity if too much
Vitamin D is taken, so please work with your physician to determine your ideal supplement regimen.
Omega 3 – This is the best source of fat you can get. Research has shown Omega 3 fats to reduce triglycerides as well as provide the body with the fat it needs to produce testosterone. The top nutritionists agree to that you will get the most benefit from taking 3-5 grams of Omega 3 fats each day.
