Let's start this topic by mentioning that steroids are very bad. Why? They are bad for the heart, can cause erectile dysfunction and muscles vanish after stop using them. I think that those reasons are sufficient for all reader to don't use steroids never in their life.
Are there natural boosters of testosterone? Yes, there are. You can naturally increase your testosterone levels by strength training and your diet plan that consist of testosterone-boosting foods.
There is another article where I wrote about training that boosts testosterone levels naturally:
Boosting testosterone levels with food is possible. You heard the phrase "You are what you eat"? Well, that also matters when it comes to natural testosterone production. Eating sugars and junk foods will not only make you fat, it will also reduce your levels of testosterone.
What are signs of a high level of testosterone in male persons:
- Stimulation of hair growth (chest, pubic area, face)
- Deeper voice
- Increased skin thickness
- Increased libido (sex drive)
- Increased muscle protein synthesis which causes increase of lean muscle mass
- Decreased body fat
- More energy and strength
Those facts are describing the alpha male, doesn't them? When you look at all those reasons why you should increase your testosterone levels I guess that it is worth it.
Best Testosterone-Boosting Foods:
Egg Yolks are rich in vitamin D which is linked with the production of testosterone. Many studies showed that cholesterol in egg yolks helps low T levels.
We know that milk is a great source of protein and calcium but drinking milk with vitamin D can also increase testosterone levels naturally.
Tuna is very healthy for our heart and it is also rich in protein and very low in calories. Besides tuna, salmon and sardine are also good testosterone-boosting foods.
Shrimps are very rich vitamin D and consuming them results in boosting testosterone levels and more strength and lean muscle mass.
Another vitamin that is linked with testosterone production is zinc. Red meat is not recommended to be eaten very much because it is linked to cancer and it is very high in fat, but lean beef consists of many nutrients that can boost testosterone levels and it also very rich in protein, zinc, and vitamin D. Choose only lean cuts of red meat and don't eat it every day.
Nuts are generally considered as very healthy. Nuts are rich in amino acids, protein, and good fats. Omega-3 fatty acids in nuts support boosting testosterone levels.
