On the flip side, a deficiency in the major male sex hormone—a condition that burdens some million American men over the age of 45, according to US census data—is, well, far from sexy. Side effects of “Low-T” include low libido, limp erections, hair thinning, muscle loss, fat gain, depression … In fact, one study found that that the lower a man’s testosterone levels, the higher his risk of death from any cause—heart disease in particular. Adding insult to injury, the Food and Drug Administration says there's little evidence that testosterone drugs are beneficial. ( Did we mention depression? ) The good news is you can boost your testosterone naturally, and diet plays a key role. So grab a pen, jot down a grocery list of these Eat This, Not That! -approved, T-boosting foods and get ready to unleash your hard-wired alpha male.
The basic ingredients for testosterone are zinc, vitamin D, cholesterol, with selenium and magnesium being present as well. Research suggests that an amino acid called N acetyl cystein can be beneficial to increasing glutathione in the testes which makes for healthier teste function and increased testosterone. Sleep is critical. Excess alchohol or body fat do not compliment testosterone production Exercise in proper amounts has been shown over and over to raise T. Moderate amounts of porn and or masturbation are probably fine, but porn induced erectile dysfunction is real. Erectile dysfunction is not fun, it's crushing. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by many things aside from low T. Man up and see your doctor if all else fails. Garlic and vitamin C together have been helpful for me, for what it's worth.
Hi Abel, my husband and I have been following your program since the beginning of March, so far he is down 60lbs and I am down 30. WOOT! We about half way to our weight loss goals. But this is so much more than just weight loss, it is about a more joyful life… do you agree? My question is this, we both have hormonal imbalances, low testosterone and low estrogen (I am 48 my husband is 53) Do you have any suggestions for meal plans that would put our perspective hormones back in line without messing up our spouse too much. Right now we are taking maca… it has helped me tremendously , my husband has not experienced much of a change. (we have been taking it for 3weeks) any help would be appreciated. Thank you and your sweet wife, Alison for all of your guidance so far, you have changed our lives☺
