5 types of testosterone boosting hormone foods for men

  1. Testosterone is the male hormone that affects many aspects of the body, not just the sexual needs. This hormone is also responsible for maintaining muscle strength, bones, sperm production and hair growth.

    Sexual Dysfunction, also known as testosterone depletion, is a treatable condition that prevents future complications from affecting your health. Along with the advice of your doctor, you should also consider the following foods that increase testosterone levels:


    Tuna is a good source of vitamin D. Tuna is also good for heart health, high in protein and low in calories. Whether you eat canned tuna or fresh tuna, eating this fish is also a natural way to boost testosterone levels. A tuna diet will also provide you with enough vitamin D you need during the day. If you do not like to eat tuna, you may consider eating other fish that contain vitamin D, such as salmon or sardines. But remember, it is important to eat at a moderate level. Consuming too much omega 3 fatty acids from fish and other foods can increase your risk of prostate cancer.

    Egg yolk

    Chicken egg yolk is another source of vitamin D. Egg yolk is more nutritious than whites. Although cholesterol is known to have a lot of negative effects on health, cholesterol in egg yolk is even beneficial for testosterone depletion. As long as you do not have any cholesterol problems, you can eat an egg a day.


    Zinc is a micronutrient needed during puberty and the effects of zinc can help maintain the sex hormone level during adulthood. Men who have sex hormone deficiency may benefit from taking zinc supplements if they are deficient in zinc. Oysters are a very rich source of zinc, and can help boost your testosterone levels.


    There are many worrying health issues about consuming too much red meat. Red meat is not only more fat than poultry, but eating too much red meat can lead to cancer, such as colorectal cancer. However, sometimes eating a beef meal can provide you with enough nutrients to boost testosterone levels. Cow's beef is a very special source of vitamin D, while beef and crooked beef contain a lot of zinc. To control the amount of animal fats present in beef, you should choose lean cuts of beef and avoid eating beef every day.

    Hard shellfish

    Occasional eating of a crab or lobster meal may be beneficial for your testosterone levels, in part because of the zinc content found in these marine foods. 3 crab rations can give you 43% of zinc demand during the day.

    Men after 40 years of testosterone decline significantly, often eat these foods will help you.
  2. You will have to eat loads of that food to experience any significant noticeable benefit of testosterone;

    Just buy Androstenedione, or other testosterone boosters or precursors.

    This stuff is definitely leverage.
  3. There is no natural food that boost testosterone, that simple...
  4. Stuff in pill form does not work well, only a small portion is obtained by your organism, most goes to waste. Pills are for medication or if you need vitamin C and your job is being a sea pirate.
  5. Wrong. Tongkat ali does boost testosterone.
  6. bring it more,Doc!
  7. Maybe so*, but it is NOT a natural food. A rock is natural and I can eat it, that doesn't make it a natural food, like you know, fish, eggs, or anything what people consume for their nutritional value.

    *Examine.com would like to disagree:


    Just because it gives you a stiffy that doesn't mean it also boosts your T.

    "No peer-reviewed evidence currently establishes Eurycoma as a testosterone booster in otherwise healthy persons or rats but many studies are quick to cite presentations by an M.I Tambi claiming these boosts in testosterone. None of Dr.Tambi's research presented in conferences appears to be indexed in Medline and the claims expressed cannot be proven."
  8. The best way to increase your testosterone level is to um.... take some testosterone.

    Most of those test boosters are useless. The only one I've ever tried that I felt actually worked was D-aspartic acid.
  9. Yeap, someone also mentioned it in a Boron review on Amazon. Those 2 are the only possible candidates.

    Boron and testosterone:


    "The researchers in this trial gave eight of their male subjects ~10 mg’s of boron supplement, every morning for 7 consecutive days. After the week had passed, the scientists compared their subjects blood results from day 1 to day 7, and found out that:

    • free testosterone levels had increased by 28%
    • free estrogen levels had decreased by -39%
    • dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels rose by 10%
    • many inflammation biomarkers (hsCRP, TNF-α) dropped significantly
    NOTE: The same researchers measured testosterone levels on their subjects in a study conducted in 1997 set to examine boron’s effects on cardiovascular risk, in that trial 10 mg’s of daily boron increased total testosterone levels by 15%, slight increases were also seen in total estrogen levels, which should be noted."

    Another study:

    "After 2 months of giving their 13 subject males 6 mg’s of daily boron (calcium fructo-borate) the levels of free testosterone had increased by 29,5% on average, a number similar to the findings of Naghii et al."

    As I mentioned in my Boron thread, I am taking 2 3-3mg pills, will report back later...Boron happens to be a mineral, so let's repeat it again: No natural food increases T.
  10. It's a root. In what world is a root not "natural food"? It does have nutritional value, obviously as it contains dietary fiber and carbohydrates. If this isn't food then a potato or carrot isn't food either.
    You're right about the testosterone boosting ability probably though, the evidence is lacking.
  11. Kind of schemantics..

    In that world when it is used only as a supplement. I wouldn't call kratom a natural food either, but it is also a plant.

    Let's just say I make a distinction between natural plants and naturally eaten food. You know, some people do it rocks too. :)
  12. We are unable to digest or extract nutrients from hard rocks, we are very much designed to eat all sorts of roots and they go through digestion quite well. Your distinction is your own and not based on science or even reality.

    PS. It's "semantics".
  13. The Natural Testosterone Plan by Buhner is an excellent primer on the subject. It describes the onslaught of testosterone depleting factors in the modern life that have a correlation with men experiencing a slow decline of available testosterone. Factors such as increased soy in the diet, the presence of pharmaceutical agents in our water supply and the rise of plastics are outlined in the book.

    Weightlifting is documented to boost natural testosterone.

    After reading the book, one understands that a simple pill is not gonna solve the perceived problem.

    Supplements like Tongkat Ali, Cordyceps, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng can make a difference. For those in northern climates with not many sunny days, simple Vitamin D can go a long way.

    The one thing I was left with is that lifestyle choices in diet and exercise are the first items to address before going down the attempted quick fix of popping supplements.
  14. Make sure your T levels are low before you take any processed hormones and low T is only one factor in sexual dysfunction. If you are having problems, see a urologist.
  15. They can be off their peak and still in normal healthy range.
  16. But if it is such a wide range, for me 400 can be normal and for you maybe 800. So what is normal? I guess the only thing could be to compare to the person's previous reading. But what if the previous was just too high for whatever reason and the current one is the normal?

    "In general, the normal range in males is about 270 to 1070 ng/dL with an average level of 679 ng/dL. A normal male testosterone level peaks at about age 20, and then it slowly declines."


    So let's say if my level is 500, that is below average but still in the normal range. Now let's say if yours was measured 3 times in the past and was always above 700 and now it is at 600, maybe that is a concern...

    "Moreover, some researchers suggest that the healthiest men have testosterone levels between 400 - 600 ng/dL."
  17. TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) is something you should consider (i.e. look at side effects as well as benefits) if you have low testosterone and you are maybe in your fifties or beyond. I have a couple of decades to go, but I would certainly consider it then (if i had low testosterone levels).

    I don't think i know any proven 'natural' testosterone boosters.
  18. Lol, i have 4 large eggs a day.
  19. Good article for seniors, I highly recommend seafood consumption as they raise your testosterone levels to great levels.
    If not, ask your pharmacist and ask for a Sildenafil.
  20. Seasoning with lecithin and/or coriander is documented to mitigate the risks of cholesterol from this dietary choice. It’s also documented that poaching the eggs are much heathier than frying.

    If one were to experience hardening of the arteries, Chelation therapy is gaining ground against open heart surgery as a non-invasive alternative.

    As for seafood, shrimp have some of the highest chloresterol content, them and beef brains.
  21. So here is one T booster on Amazon, $60 per month:

    It contains 10 mg Boron and 3g D-Aspartic Acid. Those are the only active ingredients T level wise. My Boron Chelate is $5/month and D-Aspartic Acid can be bought for $8/months.

    There, I just saved $47 for you guys...
  22. Most of it yes, the 2 things I mentioned, no. This thread is about getting extra T boost from food (aka natural) and since I noted earlier, there is no such food. The closest that comes to it are a mineral and an amino acid.

    Your Andro shit is "an endogenous weak androgen steroid hormone", so I guess nothing natural about it. It isn't cheap either.
  23. This thread and andro is like trying to make money from the market...you can do it the natural way by buying and investing in healthy stocks...or use leverage/andro/testosterone/options/plutonium.

    I'm not necessarily saying which way is better or more correct, but the option is yours.

    Make Trading Great Again 2018, high five`
  24. Sounds like a (good) plan.
  25. What do u mean by the risk of cholesterol? If you don't take enough every day, your hormone production will be adversely affected.

    In fact, eggs, that's a good one to boost testosterone naturally....eat loads of saturated fat.
  26. Zinc deficiency seems to affect testosterone... Ergo eating leafy greens should get you to at least basal level.

    There's also that velvetine off deer antlers that allegedly works..... It's natural. Upon further reading, seems like the stuff is only useful in synthesized intravenous form.

    Cholesterol though, that's necessary for test production. I'm pretty certain it's the "bad" kind too.
  27. What is the bad kind of cholesterol?
  28. Indeed, but it also works both ways. You can be within the range and be very deficient. The ranges tend to include large populations of men who are elderly and/or sick and deficient and if you are at the bottom of the range you are just matching them. Not good, or something to think about anyway.

    Also, as an aside, but an absolutely critical aside, the important measurement to be looking at is FREE TESTOSTERONE not TOTAL TESTOSTERONE. If you test out at -eg.- 600 on a range of 250-1000, you have no idea whether that is good or bad without looking at the Free T range values. Unless the Testosterone is not bound to something else, it is NOT AVAILABLE . This is not to say that the Total T measurement is without value because you need to see whether you are producing T first and then see why it is or is not ending out at Free T. Could be that is converting to estrogen, could be that it is bound to shbg, etc. But in the end, you need to be seeing you Free T levels in the desired range- NOT TOTAL T.

    For a little more on this, I searched up a quick link which covers the basics. Not sayin I agree with everything, because I just did a quick eyeballing. But it starts ya down the road to the proper way to think about it and then you read something else, and pretty soon you are smart.

  29. Indeed.

    The limiting factor for me was low Vitamin D. (I live in a climate with lot’s of rain and overcast).

  30. Yeh. Tell me about it. You begin to rust at a certain point.

    Vitamin D (which is actually a hormone not a vitamin but whatever) is another one like T in the sense that you can read a lot but you don't know what you have unless you get your level tested- PERIOD. It is the serum level that counts. Not that you ate some salmon this week so you must be okay. And because it is a fat soluble "vitamin" you will read all sorts of scary stuff about how if you take X amount it is toxic and too much. In reality, Vitamin D levels can be a real bitch to raise through supplements and you need magnesium and olive oil and like that to increase the absorption, then get tested and you have to hope that it raises it. And if a person is not informed on the difference between D2 and D3, then you can't get there from here as they say.

    It's also a little bit like the discussion about testost in the sense that you can look at ranges but you still have to decide what your goal is. If a person is in Canada and their goal is to be within the range for the normal Canadian population then why? Normal is not all that it is cracked up to be. Ironically though the Inuit/Eskomos/Aleuts/whatever have some massively high Vitamin D levels though, even though they are in the arctic. But they are eating fish/seal livers/ 24/7. Great Spirit be plenty smart.
  31. Yes, I agree. Blood test’s are where it’s at.

    As for physical ‘rusting’ have you explored systematic detoxing, probiotics, charcoal, alkaline water, IV chelation therapy, IV vit C infusions, pemf, etc?

    As for mental ‘rusting’ usually it takes a significant life event to re-organize priorities or intentional entheogenic ceremonies designed for such.

  32. Maybe you are searching among the branches for what appears only in the roots?

    - Rumi

  33. The Tree of Life from the seed to the fruit shares the same beingness.

    The separation of the soil and the soul is about as real as the difference between U and I.

    The inner arts of meditation, reflection and contemplation reveal the same truths Rumi poetically describes.

    In the beginning and the end, Truth is Truth regardless of the path.
  34. Are there any side effects to consider for these ? I have a friend who could use these products.
  35. Probably not. I mean beside growing a second dick, I don't think so.
  36. Excellent....the usual then I guess.
