Testosterone is a man's best friend.
It can help focus your thoughts, increase your sex drive, increase your muscle size and strength, promote fat loss, and much more.
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 exercise program, such as 4 Minute Abs could naturally increase your testosterone levels.
In fact, certain foods that you eat have been proven to increase your testosterone levels as well.
Here are 3 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.
2. Almonds (or any type of nut)
Nuts contain plenty of essential fatty acids. Some studies show how essential fatty acids could reduce inflammation,improve cognitive function, and alter your cholesterol levels.
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.
3. Bump Up Red Meat In 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 theestrogen levels in your body.
Which is why organic, grass-fed beef is recommended because it is free ofadded hormones and antibiotics. Diet and exercise are keys to increasing your testosterone levels.
