Is There Anything “Natural” To Boost Testosterone?

Posted on March 6, 2009. Filed under: Plenty of Health Help, Thought you should know | Tags: , , , , , |

If you want to boost your testosterone level naturally without having to use prescription replacement therapies that cause bad side effects, here are 3 general areas that you should focus on: diet; herbs; and exercise.

Diet…

There are certain foods to focus on if you want to boost your levels of testosterone.

* Oysters — Oysters should top your list because they’re packed with the mineral zinc. Zinc does many important things in the body, but one of them is to help create more mucle and thereby boost testosterone levels.
* Beef
* Chicken
* Eggs — The egg yolks especially contain some important building blocks for testosterone. For example, egg yolks contain cholesterol and testosterone is produced from cholesterol. Now, before you think you’re going to clog up your arteries, don’t be too concerned. Most people don’t realize that actually 85% to 95% of your cholesterol is made by your liver, and not from the foods you eat. Egg yolks are also jammed packed with other crucial nutrients and vitamins.
* Garlic is one of the the best natural ways to raise testosterone levels because it contains a strong compound called “allicin” that can increase the levels of testosterone. Allicin breaks down easily, so make sure you eat real garlic — supplements often don’t have any active allicin.
* Broccoli and Cabbage — these can be great natural testosterone boosters because they contain Indole-3-carbinol. Indole-3-carbinol can lessen estrogen in your body. Estrogen is a female hormone but men also produce it too — and women also naturally produce testosterone. Too much estrogen can lead to more fat and reduce muscle — and since muscle is so important for healthy levels of testosterone, having elevated estrogen is not good.

In addition, make sure you don’t smoke, and drink alcohol to excess, which both can hurt you in your quest to boost your testosterone levels.

Herbs…

No herb can directly boost your testosterone, but some can indirectly help your body make more of this hormone.

The best one is called “tribulus terrestris.” Clinical studies have shown tribulus to boost strength and stamina. Athletes and bodybuilders use it, and it’s available without prescription in supplement form.

How does it help to increase testosterone? In simple terms, our bodies have something called luteninizing hormone (LH).

LH has a role in telling the body to make more testosterone.

LH gradually slows down and diminishes as we age. The older we get the less luteninizing hormone.
Tribulus terrestris can naturally boost levels of LH — the increased LH then leads to more healthy testosterone production once again.

Exercise…

Among the best natural ways to raise testosterone levels is exercise. But not just any kind of exercise. Strolling around the park isn’t going to do the trick.

It should be short duration, high intensity exercise which helps to boost human growth hormone production and keeps testosterone levels peaked. Obviously not everyone can exercise this vigorously, so talk to your doctor before you do.

But if you can, focus on doing high intensity exercises like sprinting for short durations. If you work out with weights, focus on exercises that require large muscles in your body to execute such as leg squats and bench presses.

If you follow the tips above, you’ll have the best natural testosterone boosters available.
