Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone that is responsible for adding lean muscle among other things. While weight lifting will increase your muscle mass by itself, there are some things you can do to increase testosterone levels and speed up the muscle building process. Here are three ways you can implement right away to boost your body’s testosterone production.
Symptoms of Testosterone: -
• Decreased sexual function: -As we mentioned in the last article, starting at age 40 levels of testosterone start to diminish. The levels of the by-product prolactin of testosterone of men increases, stimulating the production of the enzyme 5-alpha reeducates that causes the conversion of testosterone to gihydro-testosterones DHT thus triggering low levels of testosterone resulting in sexual dysfunction.
• Loss of bone density: -The brain and bone are the important tissues that have the primary effect of testosterone are by way of aromatization to 17² estradiol in the bones. 17²-estradiol accelerates maturation of cartilage into bone, leading to closure of the epiphyses (a rounded end of a long bone) and conclusion of growth. • Loss of muscle mass: - Testosterone effects can be classified as anabolic effects that include growth of muscle mass and strength, increased bone density and strength, and stimulation of height growth and bone maturation. Testosterone effects can also be classified by the age of usual occurrence. • Memory loss: -Low levels of testosterone allow beta-amyloidal, a toxic peptide to accumulate in certain regions of the brain causing memory loss. There is no one herb that is better than any other on this list they all have great health benefits and will all help to enhance testosterone levels in the body, safely and naturally so here they are.
Boosting Testosterone Diet: -
• Eat cruciferous veggies. Broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage yields compounds called indoles that help lower certain estrogens, which in turn can help reduce estrogen’s inhibitory effects on testosterone production. • Eat plenty of crabs. A higher ratio of crabs-to-protein – somewhere around 2:1 is best – results in higher testosterone levels. Shoot for at least 2 grams of crabs per pound of bodyweight. • Do not eat too much. Taking in too many calories can lead to gains in body fat, which can ultimately lead to lower testosterone levels by increasing your levels of estrogen. • Eat enough. The amount of calories you consume each day should be enough to maintain your bodyweight. Lower-calorie diets are associated with lower testosterone levels. Consume around 18-20 calories for every pound of bodyweight. • Eat animal protein. Studies show that vegetarian diets lead to lower blood testosterone levels and higher amounts of “inactive” testosterone even when protein intake is the same. Be sure to consume poultry, beef, fish and pork. Red meat is particularly good due to its higher levels of saturated fat and zinc; a mineral associated with higher testosterone levels. • Eat some fat. Research suggests that when total fat, saturated fat and monounsaturated fat intakes increase, so does testosterone. Choose foods high in monounsaturated fats, like avocadoes, nuts, seeds, olives and olive oil. Red meat and dairy products (not the fat-free varieties) are also good sources of protein and saturated fat.
