How to Boost Testosterone with Food

Foods to eat, and Food to Avoid

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is increasing at a rapid pace for one reason: it works! TRT can pump new life into aging bodies, melt fat, strengthen muscles, and boost energy to an entirely new level.

And our clinics are at the forefront of the testosterone revolution! We are proud to offer the most cutting-edge, efficient, safe, and legal testosterone boosting therapies available. Our staff is filled with medical professionals that have decades of experience with hormone replacement treatments, and we stay up-to-date on any and all new breakthroughs that can increase the effectiveness of our treatments.

But we don’t stop with TRT

That’s right. We are totally committed to ensuring that you receive the maximum benefit from our treatment regimens...and that includes specific guidance for fitness training, nutrition, supplements, stress control, hydration, sleep, and the best ways to live in a toxin-free environment.

For example, here is a selection of foods that boost testosterone:

  • Onions. In a study using male rats as subjects, the rats were given onion juice and their testosterone levels exploded by an incredible 300%! Another study on male rats compared the testosterone-boosting abilities of onion vs. zinc, a mineral with a proven ability to raise testosterone. Some of the rats were given zinc only, others received onion only, and a third was given a combination of both. Testosterone was increased in all three groups, but the combination of both onion and zinc produced the most growth in the "manly hormone." To be fair this study was, as mentioned, performed on rats, and there is no guarantee that these same results apply to humans. But considering the multiple health benefits of onion, these results are not surprising.
  • Shrimp. Shrimp is one of the few foods that is jammed-packed with vitamin D, which may account for its well-known reputation as an aphrodisiac, and a testosterone booster.
  • Egg yokes. For years professional bodybuilders at the highest level emphasized eating egg whites due to concerns about excess fat. However, recently there has been a return to eating the entire egg. Far from being a cholesterol problem, egg yolks have been demonstrated to actually increase HDL cholesterol levels (the “Good cholesterol”), and contain many other healthy nutrients.
  • Kefir and/or Yogurt. These two products work wonders for increasing the beneficial probiotic bacteria in the gut that plays a gigantic role in allowing us to derive the maximum benefit from the food we eat...and that includes the foods that elevate testosterone.
  • Broccoli. Broccoli increases testosterone. Really? Yes, and here’s why. Broccoli contains two nutrients that lower estrogen levels in men: indole-3-carbinol and diindolylmethane (DIM). This equation is simple: less estrogen = more testosterone.
  • Cauliflower. Cauliflower is another cruciferous vegetable like broccoli, and Brussel sprouts that help boost testosterone for the same reason that broccoli does.
  • Brussel Sprouts. See the two vegetables directly above, and add Brussel sprouts to the testosterone all-star lineup.
  • Oysters. Oysters have long had the reputation going as far back as the Roman Empire as an aphrodisiac with good reason: they increase testosterone. In addition to being loaded with zinc, and vitamin D, oysters also deliver a powerful dose of D-Aspartic acid, a potent and proven testosterone booster.
  • Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes deliver a whopping amount of Vitamin A. Some studies have hinted that there may be an association between vitamin A and testosterone, but the jury is still out. Regardless, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carbohydrates and make a healthy addition to any nutritional eating plan.
  • Strawberries. Another food with the zinc connection that makes strawberries added to this list of testosterone-boosting foods.
  • Pumpkin seeds. Two familiar minerals pop up again: zinc and magnesium. Adequate levels of zinc and magnesium = a perfect environment for testosterone to thrive.
  • Parsley. Parsley is another food that is not commonly associated with testosterone. However, one of the ingredients of parsley is apigenin, a flavonoid that has been linked to increased testosterone.
  • Raisins. Raisins jack up testosterone? How could that be? Simple. Raisins are chock full of boron, another proven testosterone-boosting mineral. Also, raisins contain Resveratol, another substance that has been shown to lower estrogen and increase testosterone.
  • Coffee. Coffee consumption increases cAMP levels that have been linked to increased testosterone production. Moderation is the key with coffee, so don’t overdo it; one or two cups is optimal, especially before a workout.
  • Macadamia nuts. Macadamia nuts are jam-packed with monounsaturated fats that are fertile grounds for testosterone.
  • Brazil nuts. Once again our big-league starting lineup of testosterone-raising minerals takes the field: boron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and other minerals that provide a rich environment for testosterone production.
  • Avocados. Similar to macadamia nuts, avocados boost testosterone with monounsaturated fats.
  • Wheat Bran. The link between wheat bran and testosterone is magnesium, a mineral lacking in so many people. Research has linked low magnesium to several health issues, including low testosterone (aka “Low-T”). Adequate levels of magnesium set the table for virtually all aspects of good health, and that includes testosterone.
  • Olive Oil. The health benefits that olive delivers are legendary and well-known: heart protection, lowering LDL cholesterol (i.e. the “bad cholesterol”), and elevating HDL cholesterol (i.e. the “good cholesterol”). Olive oil has also been shown to elevate testosterone due to a phenolic compound found in olive oil called oleuropein that delivers many health benefits including raising testosterone.
  • Ginger. This common spice is connected to testosterone from a study in Iraq that bumped up testosterone levels in male subjects by 17%. Ginger is also an imposing anti-inflammatory agent.
  • Raw Cacao. Again, the mineral tag-team of zinc and magnesium combine to push up those drooping testosterone levels.
  • Coconut. Coconut is a saturated fat, the type of fat that has been shown to boost testosterone.
  • Blue Cheese. Like Coconut, Blue Cheese is also saturated fat. In addition, blue cheese is loaded with healthy probiotics that result in the type of excellent gut health that boost testosterone.
  • Pomegranates. Here is another fruit in the “WOW” category of food that ignites testosterone. One study gave 60 test subjects pomegranate juice daily for several days and the results shocked the researchers: the testosterone levels of the subjects skyrocketed by an average of 24%! The theory is that pomegranate blocks the enzyme aromatase, a toxic, destructive element that converts the masculine hormone of testosterone into the feminizing hormone of estrogen, which is something that no man needs.

We could go on and on with more foods that show promise in boosting testosterone. The point being is that nutritional research is being conducted at a blistering pace. As artificial intelligence becomes more efficient it is inevitable that nutritional science will advance forward in leaps and bounds.
