Today we’re taking a field trip to the grocery store to talk about foods that will naturally boost your testosterone levels. I want to review some of the standard products in the grocery store that destroy testosterone levels.
- Beer – hops is a plant-based estrogen.
- Dairy – 1/3 of a cup a day will increase your risk of prostate cancer by 25%. Dairy cows are pregnant, which pregnancy releases hormones. These hormones are responsible for increasing the risk of prostate cancer and reducing testosterone levels.
- Plastics – chemicals from plastics can leach into the water you consume, reducing testosterone levels.
- Junk food – The higher your body fat percentage, the lower your testosterone level.
- Shampoos – parabens in low-quality shampoos contain EDC chemicals.
- Deodorants – chemicals in some of these can clog your sweat ducts. Try Pete and Pedro’s Super Fresh deodorant, which is aluminum-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and vegan.
- Body and ball powders – many of these contain talc, which is horrible for your body. Try Pete and Pedro Body & Balls Powder which is talc-free.
Superfoods that boost testosterone
- Fatty fish – Salmon is amazing for boosting testosterone levels because it’s power packed with zinc and vitamin d. Fatty fish is also packed with omega-3, omega-6, and Omega 9 fats which are also fantastic for your brain and boost your testosterone levels.
- Green leafy vegetables – anything and everything from kale to collard greens to spinach to dark green leafy vegetables. These are all power pack-full of magnesium which is testosterone boosting.
- Avocados – these are full of good fats and essential for your body functions, including testosterone. Also, avocado has boron which has been shown to facilitate testosterone production and reduce testosterone degradation.
- Eggs – they are the best muscle-building foods and a complete protein. They contain an abundant amount of selenium which increases and facilitates testosterone protection.
- Oysters – these contain zinc which helps with your libido and testosterone levels.
- Shellfish – they have selenium, omega-3 fatty acids, and a ton of zinc. All of these nutrients are critical for testosterone production.
- Beans – kidney, black, and white beans contain zinc and vitamin d, which boost testosterone levels.
Basic building blocks
I suggest that each and every one of you take a high-quality multivitamin every single day to give your body the basic building blocks that it needs to support all of its healthy functions, including testosterone levels. Many multivitamins on the market are crap because they use synthetic ingredients. Look for a multivitamin that is sourced from whole food ingredients like Pete and Pedro’s Complete Whole Food Multivitamin.
