Hi Everyone, how is your Monday going?
I, personally, am tired of hearing bad news. I try to block it out and completely as possible and live in my own little positively charged reality. In my world I get a number of emails on nutrition especially how to boost testosterone.
Most of these involve exotic plants, exotic supplement prices and wildly exotic claims. My peaceful, positive world is temporarily shattered by my B.S. meter going off.
But not today. Here is an article for you on boosting testosterone through food. Not weird, inedible food but good tasting food! Regular human food. Common sense advice with science behind it.

Testosterone is a man’s best friend.
It could focus your thoughts, increase your sex drive, and increase your muscle size and strength.
However, some men notice a dip in testosterone levels, sometimes as early as the age of 30.
And research points to aging as the reason.
But, a combination of a good diet and a solid strength training program could naturally increase your testosterone levels.
In fact, certain foods that you eat could potentially increase your testosterone levels.
Here are five of the top foods that could increase your testosterone – naturally.
Chomping down a stick of celery could actually do wonders for your hormone levels.
Celery is full of the powerful hormones androstenone and androstenol.
And research shows, chewing on a piece of celery, or even the smell of celery, can stimulate your senses to start producing and releasing testosterone.
This could do wonders for enhancing your T-levels and raising your energy levels.
Not only are avocados rich in vitamin B6, but they also contain plenty of folic acid.
Folic acid, research suggests, can raise your energy levels by metabolizing certain proteins in your body.
Plus, vitamin B6 has also been shown to increase your production of testosterone – naturally.
And, avocados also contain plenty of other vitamins and minerals, like potassium, which could increase your energy levels – in and out of the gym or bedroom.
Bananas have long been said to possess libido-boosting effects.
They are rich in B vitamins which, as have been suggested in some studies, can produce and release testosterone in your body.
Not are they only rich in vitamins and minerals, but bananas also contain bromelain enzyme.
Bromelain enzyme is said to raise your libido, which could make this fruit even more potent.
4. Almonds (or any type of nut)
Nuts contain plenty of essential fatty acids.
And these fats have been shown to be beneficial for your body.
Some studies show how essential fatty acids could reduce inflammation, improve cognitive function, and alter your cholesterol levels.
Fats are vital for your testosterone production.
Without fats in your diet, your body may not be able to synthesize cholesterol to be made into testosterone.
Not only do nuts contain essential fatty acids, they also contain other vitamins and minerals, like vitamin E and zinc, which are vital for testosterone production.
5. Include Red Meat Into Your Diet Plan (grass-fed, hormone-free beef)
Reduced red meat intake has been shown to reduce testosterone levels and testosterone production.
But some cattle raised today are injected with antibiotics and hormones in order to make bigger and fatter cattle.
This could increase your exposure to estrogen, which could raise the estrogen levels in your body.
Which is why organic, grass-fed beef is recommended because it is free of added hormones and antibiotics.
Plus, red meat contains iron and other minerals which could be essential for normal hormone production.
Plus, our body needs saturated fat for hormone production and other chemical reactions in the body.
Boost Your Testosterone Levels TODAY
Diet and exercise are keys to increasing your testosterone levels.
Essential fatty acids, power B vitamins, and certain minerals have been suggested by research to increase testosterone levels and increase your libido.
And, as research suggests, increasing your testosterone levels could reverse age associated declines in muscle mass, libido, and sex drive.
