Introduction.
Testosterone is a male sex hormone that is important for sexual and
reproductive development. The National Institutes of Health regards testosterone
as the most important male hormone. Women also produce testosterone, but at
lower levels than men. The hormone also plays a role in sex drive, sperm
production, fat distribution, red cell production, and maintenance of muscle
strength and mass.
Foods to Boost Testosterone.
1. Onions and garlic are your allies in the kitchen and in the
bedroom. They help you make more and better sperm.
Both raise levels of a hormone that triggers your body to
make testosterone. And both have high levels of
natural plant chemical called flavonoids, which
safeguard your li'l swimmers against damage.
2. Protein.
Lean beef, chicken, fish, and eggs are some of your
options. Tofu, nuts, and seeds have protein, too. Try to
get about 5 to 6 ounces per day, although the ideal
amount for you depends on your age, sex, and how active
you are. When you don't eat enough of these foods, your
body makes more of a substance that binds with
testosterone, leaving you with less T available to do its
job.
3.Magnesium.
This mineral blocks a protein from binding with testosterone. The result? More
of the usable man-stuff floating around in your blood. Spinach is packed with
magnesium. Almonds, cashews, and peanuts are good sources, too.
4.Oysters.
There's a reason why these mollusks are known for being great for fertility. They
have almost five times your recommended daily dose of zinc. This mineral
helps your body make testosterone. You can also get it in beef and beans. And
it's often added to breakfast cereal.
5. Pomegranate.
Start your day with a glass of this ancient seedy fruit's juice instead of OJ. It
lowers levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol, which helps raise levels of
sex hormones including testosterone. And it can lower your blood pressure
and put you in a better mood!
