To put it bluntly, testosterone plays a very important part in shaping male sexuality and identity. It affects the sex drive, muscle mass and the density of blood as well. However, some people use drugs in an attempt to boost their testosterone levels, which unfortunately sometimes have serious and adverse effects on their bodies instead. It is much better to boost your testosterone levels naturally without using drugs. Here are some foods which can help to boost your testosterone levels.
Tuna fish contains proteins and most importantly for your testosterone levels, it has plenty of Vitamin D. This boosts your testosterone levels by 90% and gives you a higher sex drive. There are other types of fish that you can eat if you don’t like tuna, such as sardine and mackerel.
Grapes are good for the male body because they strengthen sperm and increase their ability to swim for a longer time. This is a result of the fact that the skin of grapes contains resveratrol.
Raw milk with low fat or without fat is quite important for your testosterone because it contains Vitamin D. Also, it contains amino acids that cause the production of anabolic hormones which develop your muscles. This helps you to keep a lean body which boosts your body’s testosterone production.
Eggs contain proteins and high amounts of Vitamin D. Note that both the yolk and the egg whites contain Vitamin D as well as protein. Vitamin D is great for testosterone levels and protein is also beneficial for muscle growth and repairs. The yolk is the richest part containing more protein and more Vitamin D and more minerals in general.
Beans are rich in proteins and Vitamin D and many other minerals that are useful for the body, apart from helping in boosting testosterone production. You can eat them on their own or even combine them with various other foods such as rice or bread. Note, however, that over cooking beans will reduce their mineral content.
