Testosterone Foods Really Work!

Testosterone foods have been used since the beginning of time. Our ancestors didn’t have drugs available to increase their male hormone. They simply used foods to increase their testosterone.

Food is a great way to increase your testosterone to baseline. If you are 30 or above I have bad news for you. Your testosterone is on a decline and or descent. It happens to every man everywhere. Sorry, I know…30 is young.

The good news? You can naturally increase your testosterone levels. Let’s take a look at what foods help.

The Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is based on mainly nuts, fish, veggies, and beans. This diet gained popularity a few decades ago and has been proven to increase testosterone, helps with erections, and decreases cancer. Life longer to love fuller. :) I like it. Example of what foods to gravitate towards:

  • Anchovies
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Beans
  • Feta Cheese
  • Chick Peas
  • Cous-Cous
  • Polenta
  • Lemons
  • Parmesan
  • Okra
  • Lentils
  • Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • Cod

Testosterone And Garlic

It is on the foods for male libido list! Increases testosterone and libido? A definite win. I read it also increases testicular weight. So…good for sperm count? Not a big whole clove garlic fan? Sprinkle some garlic powder or garlic salt on your favorite dish to get similar benefits.

Testosterone And Beans

Beans and an amazing good. Good for you, abundant, and cheap. Incorporating beans into your diet on a daily basis can only benefit several organs and hormones. Which beans are the best?

  • Kidney
  • Black
  • Pinto
  • Chickpeas
  • Lentils

Beans decrease estrogen in men. Yes, you have estrogen. Infact, too much estrogen can lead to chronic disease. Testosterone can convert to estrogen. Especially in men who are overweight. Eat healthy and eat your beans. More on estrogen below…

Testosterone And Estrogenic Chemicals

Testosterone decline is also due to exposure to estrogenic chemicals. So, age and chemicals are causing your decline.

Where are these chemicals?

All around us. In your food and in our water systems.

What can you do? Eat certain types of food and herbs on a daily basis! Here is a list of foods you should incorporate everyday to help combat the estrogenic chemicals.

  • Cruciferous Vegetables
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Curry
  • Red Wine
  • Flax Seeds
  • Kale
  • Omega 3’s
  • Milk Thistle
  • Dandelion Root
  • Parsley

Testosterone And Healthy Fats

Healthy fats are paramount for optimal health. If you are not eating properly then you body is not going to work properly. Plain and simple. Put down the bag of chips, which are full of Omega 6 fatty acids, and pick up an avocado. Here is a list of fats to incorporate into you diet on a daily basis:

  • Olives
  • Coconut Oil
  • Organic Eggs (never buy anything other than organic)
  • Nuts (especially almonds and walnuts)
  • Avocados

I hope this gets you started on selecting good testosterone foods.
