Dietary tips to improve male hormone secretion & production
Testosterone is the main male sex hormone. In other words, it is your key to sexual growth,performance and power. Testosterone is produced by the testes that performs and maintains various body functions e.g. muscle mass and strength.
It encourages the development of male sexual characteristics (penis growth, muscle development and Masculine features), fat distribution; bone mass, sperm production, sex drive, and potency.
Why testosterone is so important in men?
Testosterone is so important in men because it causes the development of the male genitals (the penis and testicles) in the womb and at puberty helps all of the male characteristics to develop – like enlarged penis size, deeper voice, increased muscle mass, body and facial hair etc. Testosterone also continues to be important during all stages of a man’s life. In fact testosterone could be thought of as being central to a man’s mind, body and sexual function.
How to naturally boost your testosterone levels?
Taking synthetic or artificial forms of testosterone such as pills or injections can be dangerous because of increased risk of side effects. Here are some nutritional and dietary recommendations to raise your testosterone levels in the most natural way possible:
Lose weight: If you are too obese or overweight, then your testosterone level will be naturally low. Therefore, shed those extra pounds.
Increase sex frequency: Sex triggers your body to produce more testosterone. When you get aroused you are signaling your sex organs to perform so they start taking action to follow that order. This is great news. Inform your partner/s to step up the action. The hotter that better.
Make muscle: Bodybuilders use compound exercises, exercises that use more than one muscle group, to accelerate muscle building. Free weights and squats increase this process.
Eat monounsaturated fat: Research has found that men who ate diets rich in monounsaturated fat, the kind found in peanuts, avocados, fish and healthy oils like flax seed, olive and canola are a great way to naturally boost testosterone levels. Try not to eat too much fat but remember that the fat in any kind of nuts will push up your testosterone level.
Avoid alcohol: Research indicates that excessiveness of the alcohol use lowers testosterone levels.
