You may want to consider to start a testosterone diet and eat those foods that naturally increase the T levels in your body, if you feel like your testosterone is low.
First of all I would suggest to eat more natural on general basis, and if you can, prefer organic foods. They don't contain pesticides and herbicides that are like poison for the human body.
Yes quantities are low and even if they respect the law it's proven that they lower our testosterone production.
Studies revealed that processed food increases the estrogens in our body, and we all know by now that estrogen and testosterone can't coexist very well.
The higher the estrogen, the lower the testosterone
If you eat natural you can keep the estrogens low and the result will be higher testosterone.
But anyway, there are some specific foods that help boosting the testosterone levels in our body, that why we talk of testosterone diet.
Which Foods Should Be Part of Your Testosterone Diet
Foods that are rich in zinc should be part of your diet. Zinc is know to have anabolic properties because it stimulates the production of testosterone. It helps to boost the immune system as well.
If your diet is poor in zinc you can take cheap zinc supplements. It's not a case that one of the popular testosterone booster supplements is ZMA (zinc + magnesium + vitamin B6).
Avocado is really good for maintaining a healthy testosterone level.
Avocados are reach of healthy fats that your body needs.
We grow up taught that fats are bad, but there is a distinction.
There are good fats and bad fats. Bad fats are those of animal sources.
The good fats are instead very important too keep our testosterone production healthy. Testosterone is influenced by the balance between proteins-carbs-fats.
Because they contain lots of zinc they are recommended if you want to keep higher levels of testosterone and stimulate muscle growth.
Oysters are probably the best source of zinc that we can find in food.
4. Lean Meats
Lean meats, not all meats, provide a considerable amount of proteins and zinc. An example is lean beef.
It contains also some saturated fat, in small amounts. You don't want too much saturated fat, but a little bit is still necessary.
Like lean meats, beans are probably the best source of zinc when we talk about vegetables.
Many of you won't like to hear this, but the active ingredient in garlic enhances testosterone and inhibits cortisol, which is a hormone that competes with testosterone.
Nuts are part of the testosterone diet because they are rich in fatty acids, kinda like avocados. They are also good in proteins and zinc.
Bananas are rich in potassium and vitamin B. They both help testosterone production. Bananas have also the benefit of increasing libido!
9. Fish Oil
This is probably one of the forgotten ingredients of our diets. And many don't know that to support testosterone production you need fish oil because it contains fatty acids, good fats.
I personally take Omega-3 supplements every day. I can't eat all the fish I need!!
Eggs contain proteins and good cholesterol. Testosterone is synthesized by cholesterol, so foods that contain good cholesterol should be part of your testosterone diet. Stay away instead from LDL cholesterol, the bad one.Return to Home Page
