Foods That Boost Testosterone That You Will Actually Eat!
I am tired of reading articles on foods that boost testosterone with not ONE food that I would actually eat!
“Eat oysters for zinc and an erection!”
“Eat the watermelon rind for citrulline, blood flow and an erection!”
First off, when is the last time you had oysters for meal three? Secondly, who the hell eats the rind off of a watermelon? The answer it NOBODY! What is the point of an article with no take-home message?
This article will give you the best foods that boost testosterone. The best foods meaning they taste good, aren’t weird and disgusting, and you probably already have them in your pantry. In your pantry to get in the girl’s panties… YEAH BUDDY!
Testosterone helps with anything from bodyfat, lean body mass, energy, and so many other things. If you want to optimize your testosterone levels naturally to improve your performance and appearance, you MUST eat these foods.
Foods That Boost Testosterone
Tuna, Shrimp and Other Fish: The reason here is vitamin D. When overweight men were given vitamin D in one study, they had higher testosterone levels than those not given vitamin D. Also, low vitamin D is associated with lower testosterone and absorption of calcium.
You can also get this from vitamin D fortified milk, but since you probably already eat this, I assume tuna can be a huge help to you. Also, for those hot dates, it’s another reason to order the coconut shrimp.
Coconut Oil: Contains saturated fat. But this isn’t the saturated fat you worry about, this is basically MCT. MCT are medium chain triglycerides and are easier to digest that most fat (long chain triglycerides) and has benefits for heart health, obesity prevention and brain health.
Most experts recommend 20% of your diet come from fats. Of that, 20% comes from saturated fat. This helps with optimal hormone production, yup – testosterone!
Peanut Butter: Another great source of fat, this yummy treat also contains ample amount of magnesium. Magnesium plays a part in many bodily processes, one of them being testosterone production.
Studies have shown that men with higher magnesium intakes have more testosterone, so there we go – eat up!
Turkey: Nothing beats a delicious turkey sandwich. Filled with zinc, the main component in the marketed testosterone booster ZMA, a deficiency in zinc can cause decreased testosterone by eating zinc in your diet or supplementing with ZMA (also contains magnesium as listed above), you ensure optimal testosterone levels.
Broccoli: Not only does this contain diindolemethane as found in MTS Nutrition Tyrant to control estrogen levels, it is super-high in vitamin C. Vitamin C has been shown to help reduce cortisol, which can negatively impact testosterone.
By keeping cortisol at bay, we can maximize testosterone.
Milk: Loaded with vitamin D, this alongside Whey Protein (see MTS Nutrition Whey here) also contains ample amount of BCAA’s which not only has lean mass benefits, but also controls cortisol.
Testosterone Supplemental Must Haves
To make this simple, I will recommend two must-haves. D-aspartic acid and L-carnitine.
D-Aspartic Acid is the KING of all testosterone boosters and a GREAT base for this formula. In one study, subjects who took 3,000mg of DAA over a 6 and 12-day period experienced increases in testosterone by up to 40%!
L-Carnitine (Complex) is a MUST-HAVE in an effective testosterone boosting. Long used for its effects on fat loss, L-Carnitine Complex improves androgen receptor activity to enhance hormonal response, and has been scientifically proven to assist in recovery from strenuous exercise. Combined with DAA, this is an amazing one-two punch.
One supplement that contains both of these ingredients is MTS Nutrition Barracuda.
The Lowdown for Your Boys Down Low
Not only are these foods healthy and good for you, they also might help give you an extra edge in the gym and in life. Add one or more of these into your diet and optimize your testosterone. Because eating for health AND performance, that’s not a game!
