Sup /fit/ what are some ways to naturally increase testosterone?
I'm talking food, habits, specific activities, even social behaviors etc.
Pretty much anything
Phrase it as if you were talking to a clueless n00b (which for all you know, I am) in case there are some that see this thread.
Also, if anyone has info-graphics or things like that pls dump
I only take 5k but vitamin D is cool. You will actually feel nauseous and gag a lot when youre taking too much.
If that happens take a week off and drop the dose. Vitamin d is more for bones n joints imo
>vitamin d, b
>spend more time outside
>heavyweight compounds, strenght training
>get enough sleep
>stop watching porn (overall gains)
>masturbate less (minor gains)
>eat foods that have cholesterol ie eggs
>just live a more active life overall
>Mean serum insulin-like growth factor-I was 9% lower in 233 vegan men than in 226 meat-eaters and 237 vegetarians (P = 0.002). Vegans had higher testosterone levels than vegetarians and meat-eaters, but this was offset by higher sex hormone binding globulin, and there were no differences between diet groups in free testosterone, androstanediol glucuronide or luteinizing hormone
Higher total test, but higher sex hormone binding globulin. Going vegan won't make any difference, plus I've seen other paper which say otherwise.
>Plasma levels of testosterone and estradiol-17 beta were significantly lower in the SV than in the omnivores
>Our data suggest that in a vegetarian group, less testosterone is available for androgenic action
>We conclude that reduction in dietary fat intake (and increase in fiber) results in 12% consistent lowering of circulating androgen levels without changing the clearance
Not that it would make much of a difference, you'd need to at least double test if you want decent gains. There is a reason why pro's pin.
Nutrient deficiencies that can cause T to drop are vitamin D, zinc, and magnesium. D-Aspartic Acid increases T temporarily when taken for 2 weeks, then does nothing.
Basically, you can't cheat your natural hormone axis in the long term. And supplementing it directly with testosterone shuts it down outright.
>fats in abundance
>minimize drinking booze
>dark leafy greens and cruciferous veggies in abundance
>meat from time to time
This will keep you topped up in the nutrients like zinc and vitamins that people will tell you to supplement. Hormones are made from fats, especially cholesterol. Testosterone is based one a sterol ring.
>Lifting and HIIT
>don't do too much steady state cardio
>get some sun
From riding motorcycles to gambling to stock trading, risks boost test like five-fold.
>fake it 'til you make it.
Your body rewards you with test for acting like the top dog.
