Men as young as 30 are now showing signs of low testosterone.
Symptoms such as a reduced libido, brain fog and much fewer erections when waking up are becoming ever too common.
Therefore it is vital to get as much natural testosterone boosting foods in your diet as possible.
It is important to remember that testosterone is produced in the testes; therefore, exercise, relaxation and “hanging loose” can help to improve the situation.
Here our list foods recommended by us that will help you increase your testosterone levels:
Grapes are an excellent source to help you produce more active sperm.
By eating a bunch of red grapes on a daily basis makes for hardier sperm.
Recently, Chinese researchers discovered the equivalent of 500mg (about the amount of 5-10g of grape skins) was enough to help raise testosterone levels and improve the sperm’s motility.
Tuna is very useful for increasing sex drive.
Admittedly, the fragrance may not be very appealing but the vitamin D content certainly is.
The vitamins in tuna bolster testosterone levels by up to 90%. A tin of tuna contains you recommended daily amount of goodness.
Avocados have been used for years to assist in clearing arteries.
Blocked arteries cause erectile dysfunction and restrict the flow to the penis.
Recently Penn State University carried out a study into avocados and discovered that men with high intakes of monounsaturated fats in the form of avocados, nuts and vegetable oils, tended to have lower cholesterol and higher testosterone.
We recommend trying a half mashed avocado spread on a bagel topped with shreds of salmon.
According to the international Journal of Impotence Research 47% of impotent men found an improvement in their condition after a daily glass of antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice.
Unfortunately for vegetarians a meat-free diet can lower testosterone levels by up to 14%.
According to scientists a lack of protein intake helps to boost testosterone-deactivating hormones.
But an overly rich diet consisting of saturated fats in the form of beef and lamb can also reduce testosterone levels.
Therefore it is important to maintain a balanced diet to increase testosterone levels.
Garlic contains allicin, which is a compound that helps to reduce the levels of cortisol which is known as a stress-hormone.
Cortisol competes against testosterone to get into the muscle cells.
We recommend eating raw garlic as it is much more potent than it is cooked.
Honey contains essential minerals including boron which is linked to high testosterone.
Honey is also a rich source of nitric oxide which is crucial for opening up the blood vessels vital for rock-hard erections.
Just four teaspoons of honey can boost nitric oxide levels by 50%.
Milk is rich in amino acids which aid the production of anabolic hormones which help to burn fat and build lean muscle.
The yolk (the yellow bit) is known to be as precursor for testosterone.
You can safely eat up to three eggs a day without increasing cholesterol levels.
Cabbage is rich in a chemical called indole-3 carbinol which helps the body to flush it itself from female hormones.
A recent study carried out by Rockefeller University found that healthy men consumed 500mg of cabbage a day and this halved their oestrogen levels.
A medical condition that leads to an unusual drop in testosterone levels can normally be fixed by taking a supplemental testosterone booster.
