Ways to Increase Testosterone
Testosterone is the most important male hormone and critical for having the physique everyone wants. Those who claim not to care about their appearance are liars, everyone likes sex unless they have emotional health issues and looking good gets you laid. Here are the main ways to increase testosterone.
Testosterone is made from cholesterol. Although we make some cholesterol in our body it’s critical to eat a sufficient amount of cholesterol. Eggs are very rich in cholesterol and its no surprise that for decades they were the gold standard in muscle building foods. Vitamin D is a hormone like vitamin and it is necessary for Testosterone production. Deficiency in Vitamin D causes low testosterone production and increasing Vitamin D in these men’s diets has shown a 20% increase in testosterone production. Diets high in fat and low in fiber help produce more testosterone than diets low in fat and high in fiber. I suggest a diet with 30%-40% of daily calories from fat, with at least 2 whole eggs and 2,000 iu vitamin D for increasing your testosterone. I realize many people may think this is not healthy. I am not saying it is healthy, Im saying this will be the best approach at increasing your testosterone through food.
Some studies indicate that carbohydrates decrease testosterone production. One in particular showed that 75 g of liquid carbs post workout decreased post workout testosterone levels by 25% for up to 2 hours. That means when you should be recovering from the workout your testosterone is blunted by your “Mass Gainer”.
Heavy compound movements build muscle partly by releasing growth hormone and testosterone. Weighted pull ups, weighted dips, squats, deadlifts, incline bench press, military press, and bent rows. Weight so heavy you can’t get 12 reps, but not so heavy you can’t get 6 perfect reps. These should be the core of your workouts if you want to release more testosterone and have the strongest, most impressive physique possible.
Although rest periods of 60 seconds release more growth hormone, rest periods of 90 seconds release more testosterone. Resting 120 seconds is inferior in regards to both of these hormones. So for fat loss stick to 60 second rests and stay away from carbs pre/mid/immediately post workout. For muscle building keep your rest periods at 90 seconds with the lifting mentioned above and wait about 30 minutes to have carbs for the largest post exercise testosterone spike.
D-Aspartic Acid is one of my absolute favorites. In men with decreased production of testosterone nothing turns it up faster than DAA. It acts on the testes to produce and release testosterone and results are noticed in 24 hours. Take 3g first thing in the morning. It works on the brain to increase memory and tells the brain to produce hormones that stimulate testosterone production. It helps the testes absorb cholesterol for production of testosterone and it amplifies hCG’s effects on testestosterone production. I put both DAA and Vitamin D in my natural testosterone booster Rise and Swell. It is the most scientific approach at natural test boosting on the market, at a very low price.
hCG is a prescription drug used for infertility. It acts on the testes in concert with DAA to increase testosterone production and release.
ZMA is good as a Zinc supplement for deficient men but if a man has sufficient zinc levels more is unnecessary.
Tribulus Terrestris is marginally helpful in men with low testosterone and sperm production but not in men with normal production.
Hibiscus Rosasinensis was found in separate studies from africa to asia to increase testosterone and sperm production. It is a natural test booster in the LG product Natadrol.
Curculigo Orchioides is another natural test booster found in Natadrol.
Rise and Swell and Natadrol are packaged together with Form XT in the Natural Stack: the best way to increase your natural testosterone.
There are two classes of anti estrogens. Both are awesome! Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs) and Aromatase Inhibitors. Both started as prescription drugs for breast cancer. Aromatase inhibitors stop the enzyme aromatase from converting testosterone to estrogen. This has two huge benefits:
1) Your not degrading your testosterone – duh!
2) The estrogen signals the body to reduce testosterone production
Aromatase inhibitors are like taking your foot off the breaks and hitting the gas at the same time. They work great with hCG, DAA, and SERMs to reverse infertility. The best one is Letrozole, but there are over the counter versions available both liquid sublingual and oral capsules. For a great Aromatase inhibitor click here!
SERMs inhibit the estrogen receptor in all the bad places and activate it in the liver and testes. It helps, not hurts your cholesterol. And boosts testosterone production directly! Tamoxifen is the king of this category.
Many of you have heard of PCT or Post Cycle Therapy. This is nothing more than increasing your natural testosterone production post cycle. I get a great deal of terrible questions about SERMs and PCT. It’s clear that people on the forums have no idea what they are talking about. It seems people think a SERM is a magic pill that turns your nuts back on after a cycle. NO. It’s just there to increase natural production through inhibition of the receptor for estrogen. The AI is the main agent as that stops testosterone from being converted to estrogen. If this is still unclear you shouldn’t try to do your own PCT, you just dont understand. Use one of the products that come with our cycles like Form XT.
Prohormones are cholesterol based molecules that convert to Testosterone or other anabolic steroids once the body metabolizes them. They don’t boost your natural testosterone production but replace it with stronger active hormones. One of my favorites is 4-Androstenolone, It converts into Testosterone and works as testosterone in your body just like if it was made in your testes. I have constructed many cycles of Prohormones: the Basic Mass Stack and the Basic Cut Stack are great places to start. I have included the natural test booster Rise and Swell and the PCT Form XT so that you have the on cycle and post cycle therapy to get your natural test production up to its maximum possible level WHILE on cycle and after!
