Remember: Testosterone is the hormone that makes a man a man. Needless to say it plays a very important role in our libido. Now, here’s another great friend, that helps you increase your testosterone naturally without going to the doctor (please don’t do that, unless there is a medical reason). I’m talking about garlic:
Garlic is one of the most effective natural products. Yes, I know some people may find its odor unpleasent, but its benefits are tremendous: If you don’t use it excesssively, garlic is a real sex booster (I usually take three or four cloves with my evening meal).
If you want to live a happier life, you can do that by simply changing your diet. It’s so easy. Garlic has a great reputation as an aphrodisiac. It has always been known for enhancing libido, giving sexual power and curing impotence and sexual dysfunction . There are many other health benefits of garlic, which are still under study. All I can say is: Garlic is great, and it is our friend.
Testosterone is the main male hormone. It plays a role in packing on and building muscle, maintaining a healthy sex drive, keeping body fat low and energy levels high. It’s the hormone that’s responsible for masculinity and for quality of life.
Though all men have testosterone, levels vary from person to person, and they decrease as men age.
A decline in testosterone can cause undesirable effects such as weight gain, depression, lack of interest in sex, while a boost in testosterone levels can make you feel healthier.
How can we boost our testosterone levels?
Today I’m going to share with you seven tips for natural treatments of low testosterone. If you have low testosterone, like many men do, you’re going to find that these natural cures will absolutely help you overcome it faster.
A lack of sleep can cause low testosterone levels. So getting more sleep is very important. Make sure to get adequate sleep every night. The amount of sleep healthy adults need may vary, but the usually recommended amount is 7 to 9 hours to optimize testosterone production. Sleep deprivation can have a negative impact on men’s testosterone levels. The more sleep you get, the better your body can produce testosterone.
2. Don’t Go Low Fat
Stop following these fat-free diets and add in a lot of healthy fat in your diet. Fat is vital for testosterone production. Most men with low testosterone are consuming too much junk food, too many carbohydrates. You’ve got to get rid of that stuff and load up on healthy fat. Cut down your carbs and eat more fat.
Dietary fat isn’t all bad, unlike what we have been conventionally told. A diet containing ample amounts of saturated and mono unsaturated fats can increase testosterone levels. If you want to optimize your testosterone production naturally, increasing your intake in foods rich in these fats will do you good. Almonds and other nuts, avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, red meat, egg yolks, and cheese are great picks.
3. Get Rid of Your Belly Fat
Most men don’t even know this, but belly fat is proven to cause low testosterone. Though a diet in good fats is essential to boosting your T-levels, you still should lose any excess body weight (if you do have it). Overweight men tend to have low testosterone levels, since excess fat usually stimulates estrogen secretion.
Estrogen serves to counteract the effects of testosterone, so this is not a great way to go about raising your T-levels.
As a man, when you have excess estrogen in your body, your body becomes a fat-storing machine.
The hardest part about increasing testosterone is the sequence you must increase it in. A lot of people start eating a lot of fat, since cholesterol is very important to boosting testosterone.
First, don’t start eating a lot. Get rid of your belly fat quickly. If you have a belly and you want to lose that body fat first, you want to go on a calorie deficit. I mean, still be on a high-fat diet, but cut your calories.
4. Get Your Workout On
This not only helps you reduce your body fat and get rid of your belly. Exercise increases testosterone levels, and it also makes you feel better and more energized.
Especially weight training boosts T levels significantly. Going in the gym at least three days a week, ideally four or five days a week, and lifting heavy weights is great. You’re going to find that you’re going to see huge results in your testosterone levels after some time. The more you stimulate your muscles, the more testosterone your body secretes.
Make sure you get enough zinc. This element plays an important role in your testosterone production, and the good news is you can easily get it from your diet. Foods rich in zinc include oysters, crab, lobsters, spinach, nuts, beans, avocados, and whole grains.
6. Vitamin D
One of the most important nutrients that can help boost testosterone levels is Vitamin D. If you are low in Vitamin D, it will absolutely crush your testosterone levels. So you want to be getting out in the sun at least (!) 20 to 30 minutes a day. If you are inside all day, any day you’re not getting 20 minutes of direct sunlight on your skin, you miss a chance to get Vitamin D.
You can do everything in the world, but if your Vitamin D levels aren’t right, your testosterone levels will stay low.
7. Have More Sex
Having sex with hot women is a great way to increase your testosterone levels. I love hot chicks and you should love them, too.
There’s a lot of people they go out by themselves in order to meet people in a club or a bar. So if you’re going out alone you’re not the only one out there.
If you don’t have a social circle and you’re on your own, you need to become a master of small talk. Talk to the bartenders, talk to staff, talk to everybody around.
People who are serving you in a bar or a club deserve to be treated with respect. Don’t become an idiot or an asshole because you are paying them to serve you. Start thinking of them as your friends.
If you’re on your own you have to develop and improve your communication skills. That’s very important. You do that through practice.
But let me also talk about the don’ts: Don’t sit in a bar or a club staring into nothingness. This is exactly what some guys do. They go into a club, buy a drink and then they just sit there staring at their drink. That’s a no-no.
Not only you’re going to feel more lonely if you do that. People around you will see that you’re isolated and not being social. It doesn’t help if you stare at your phone pretending sending text messages to people. This is ridiculous.
There is no way around: If you want to meet people you need to interact with them. Interaction means communication. As I said, improve your communication skills by talking not by sitting around and doing nothing.
There’s a lot of power in life to having nothing to lose. It’s not until you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything.
As long as you’re trying to have something in reserve, as long as you’re trying to have a fallback plan, as long as you’re trying to maintain then you’re not going to be as strong.
I’m not saying you should throw away everything in your life and take crazy risks. I’m not saying that at all. What I am saying though is we must know, not fear but be aware of, that someday we will die. We will.
We will die. In the end, it’s all going to come to a big pile of nothing.
We’re not going to live forever (nor will our legacy), so we may as well have some fun. So enjoy your life. Make amazing things happen.
If you don’t have enough testosterone you start becoming estrogen dominant. One of the functions of estrogen is to store fat. In a man it stores fat in his belly. Belly fat inhibits the testosterone production.
That estrogen will continue to suppress your testosterone levels. Say goodbye to normal erections, to sex drive, to normal life style, normal motivation, adventure and all positive things that are masculine and inside of us.
When our testosterone levels fall, we become whiny and wimpy, irritable and passive.
The problem today is there’s so many female hormones in the environment. Pesticides are female hormones. They put female hormones in the meat that we eat to fatten the animals up. That estrogen goes in the body, suppresses our testosterone.
What’s the solution?
Don’t take homones. If you take hormones your body gradually loses its ability to make those hormones. Taking testosterone is taking steroids. Taking testosterone is not a solution. Instead help your body make more testosterone.
How do you make testosterone?
Go to the gym, build up muscles and don’t forget to rest. You have to have recovery time.
Recovery time is the basis for rebuilding testosterone. Work hard and relax. You can meditate. Go into the cave for a while. You need to fully relax.
If you work hard and then you rest hard then you come back, your muscles have rebuilt and they’re stronger.
