10 WAYS TO BOOST TESTOSTERONE

Here are 10 ways for men to boost their testosterone:

1) Lose the visceral fat or belly fat

2) Increase your Vitamin D

3) Eat more zinc. The body needs zinc to make testosterone. Zinc also blocks the action of the enzyme aromatase which converts testosterone to estrogen

4) Eat cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, watercress and cauliflower

5) Choose healthy fats and proteins

6) Consume hot chilies. Spicy chilies and hot-chili powder not only burns fat but they also contain high levels of antioxidants which can cool inflammation. Inflammation sets the stage for belly fat and insulin resistance.

7) Do high intensity interval training. Short bursts of timed intense activity trigger the body to make more testosterone

8) Get better, longer sleep

9) Stop using screens at night. The backlight from computer screens, smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. use light emitting diodes (LED’s) that contain short-wavelength blue light. This light significantly suppresses melatonin which is essential for a restful sleep

10) Look into your personal care products, soap, shampoo, deodorant, etc. to make sure that the chemicals don’t interfere with hormone balance, including testosterone
