Top 4 Ways to Naturally Boost Testosterone Levels
Testosterone is obviously the main male hormone that makes us men.
One of the best things about Testosterone is that it allows us to build muscle faster, maintain a leaner physique, get stronger, and of course.... grow a really awesome beard 💪🤣
First thing is first, in order to understand how to boost your testosterone levels naturally, you must fully understand & know the actual definition.
"A steroid hormone that naturally stimulates development of male secondary sexual characteristics, produced mainly in the testes, and adrenal cortex."
Today I am going to be talking about what may come to you as the most surprising ways to boost testosterone naturally 😆
- Sex - & lots of it!
- Stress - AKA Cortisol Levels!
- Nutrition - Put down the Pizza Bro..
- Sleep - Stop playing Call of Duty & go to bed!
- Endocrine Disruptors - Don't worry, I'll explain!
HOW NUTRITION CAN HELP BOOST TESTOSTERONE:
Believe it or not, your eating habits can have a lot to do with your testosterone production.
Generally with bad nutrition, comes higher levels of body fat. When your physique is leaner you body is actually able to produce more testosterone. This does not mean you have to be walking around at 5% body fat all year! A goal range to stay within would be around 8-12% body fat! When your body fat levels drop to far below, or way above this range, testosterone production seems to reduce.
Eating higher quality protein sources that have complete amino acid profiles can also help! Actually men who take creatine often, are shown to usually have higher levels of testosterone. This is most likely due to the fact that creatine can help produce greater strength, and muscle mass!
Paying attention to your caloric intake will also play a big role in your body's testosterone levels. If your body stays in a caloric deficit for too long, it can switch to survival mode and hold onto body fat...😪
HOW HAVING SEX CAN HELP BOOST TESTOSTERONE:
Yes, you read that right! Sex can help increase natural testosterone production in the body!
This has been heavily studied since the late 1970s! Studies suggest that frequent sex can lead to higher levels of personal happiness, satisfaction, self-esteem, cognitive functioning, and help with overall well-being! ( I dont have to say this, but make you wrap it before you ..... it! STD's are real things and can really have harmful effects on your life. SO BE SMART!
HOW HIGH STRESS LEVELS DECREASE TESTOSTERONE:
Whenever your body experiences higher than normal amounts of stress, mentally, physically, or emotionally. Your body will release a hormone called Cortisol.... (Stress Hormone). Cortisol is great in short burst when your working, however when it is prolonged and when it does not decrease, this is when it can become very harmful to your body and drive your testosterone levels into the ground.
Side effects of higher cortisol levels are, mood swings, lack of energy, terrible sleep, anxiety, depression, etc. So make sure you keep a good gauge on your body's stress levels and find a way to "unplug" from the world every day to help manage stress levels from affecting your natural testosterone levels.
HOW SLEEPING CAN HELP BOOST NATURAL TESTOSTERONE:
This could be one of the easiest "bad habits" to fix in your daily routine.
In my personal opinion sleep is going to be one the best places to help natural increase testosterone levels in your body. Studies suggest that men who sleep around 5 hours a night have 10-15% lower testosterone levels than men who catch a full 8 hours of sleep.
Make sure that you are doing everything you can to ensure you are getting proper sleep during the week! Remember guys, while you are sleeping your body is recovering from all the stress, and damage you do to it throughout your day!
