    Foods that Boost Testosterone

    Here's a really simple way to get more of the "He-hormone": eat more of the foods that boost testosterone.

    Food that increases testosterone is not just for men, by the way, since women also naturally produce some testosterone in their bodies and it plays a vital roles for them as well, not the least of which is keeping a healthy libido.

    Without further ado, let's discuss the best foods that increase testosterone...


    The general rule to keep in mind is that you want to focus on foods that contain more protein and fats and less carbs.

    Despite what common wisdom claims, eatings fats doesn't make you fat, as long as they are natural fats, and not trans-fats. In fact. natural fats help keep you lean. Our bodies were evolved to metabolize natural fats readily.

    And together with rich protein sources, natural fats also help your body manufacture more testosterone hormone.
    Foods that Boost Testosterone
    Having given you the general rule to follow in selecting foods, good specific choices for foods that increase testosterone would include:

    Beef -- Yep, enjoy that juicy steak, and don't trim off the fat on the edges either.

    Chicken and Eggs -- Both are great sources of protein. And make sure you don't throw out the egg yolks as many folks do.
    The yolks are loaded with important vitamins like B1 and B2 and nutrients like lutein which maintain healthy eyes. But, they are also a good source for cholesterol, which -- believe it or not -- testosterone is produced from.

    And by the way, egg yolks will not appreciably raise your cholesterol levels either. In fact, almost 90% of your body's cholesterol is manufactured by your liver, not from the foods you eat.

    Seafood -- Especially Oysters. Seafood is high in protein, contains basically no carbs, and oysters in particular are loaded with the mineral zinc. Zinc has many functions in the body and just a couple of those are aiding in muscle manufacture and increased testosterone levels.

    Vegetables and Herbs to Boost Testosterone Hormone

    Believe it or not, there are also solid non-meat sources that should top your list of the foods that boost testosterone.

    Just a couple of these are broccoli and cabbage, and both for the same reason -- that is, because they contain something called Indole-3-carbinol.

    Indole-3-carbinol, in simple terms, helps to reduce estrogen. Estogen is the hormone that females produce more of (just like men produce more testosterone). However, men also naturally produce some estrogen.

    If you have too much estrogen, it can result in more fat and less muscle, which is all bad for testosterone production.

    Garlic is a wonderful herb that contains a potent active ingredient called allicin that helps to increase testosterone.

    For a double whammy effect, slice fresh garlic thinly, then crisp lightly in a pan with a bit of butter or olive oil; finally, crack some eggs in the pan for garlic sunny side eggs. Delicious!

    This is one of the editor's favorite food that increases testosterone, which he regularly eats for breakfast and helps keep his energy, vitality, and testosterone levels at peak levels.

    Finally, an herb called tribulus terrestris is something that elite athletes and bodybuilders use to boost their testosterone levels.


    Tribulus terrestris is both a libido enhancer (and has been proven in multiple clinical trials in this regard) and has an ability to increase testosterone.

    How does it work?

    Well, our bodies contain something called luteinizing hormone. One of luteinizing hormone's functions is to command the production of testosteron in our bodies.

    As we age, the level of luteinizing hormone gradually diminishes.

    Tribulus terrestris helps by naturally boosting the levels of luteinizing hormone which, therefore, can help our bodies produce more of the testosterone hormone again.

    It showed a breakdown of how exactly Cholesterol stimuated Test production... i can't remember, it may be online somewhere... but It was something like:

    Cholesterol

    another
    another
    another
    another
    Testosterone

    Interesting stuff.

    I believe I read that flaxoil can actually lower testosterone. T-levels are related primarily to saturated and monosaturated fats.

    Re: Foods that boost testosterone......

    I liked reading that, because eggs have gotten a bad rep over the last few years................i ate a huge serving of eggs every morning when i was in the MArines, because it was the main thing in the chowhall, so when they told me my Cholesterol was really good, i was puzzled. So the way i look at it, if you are bulking and dont put on fat easily, eat those eggs. Its back to 6 scrambled every morning for me.

    Re: Foods that boost testosterone......

    All fats do not boost test....flax for instance is high in lignans, which show considerable lowering of test levels. High fiber will do the same.
