6. Brazil Nuts (Selenium)
This tree nut is an excellent natural source of the mineral selenium and a great testosterone booster. According to studies, regular intake of selenium can significantly raise testosterone levels in serum. It also shows promise as a treatment for infertility.
The high selenium content is mainly responsible for Brazil nuts’ positive benefit on T levels. One 100-gram serving can provide 2739% of the recommended selenium RDA (about 1,917 micrograms of selenium).
Brazil nuts also have a good ratio of fats. A 100-gram serving contains 15 grams of SFAs (saturated fatty acids), 25 grams of MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) and 19 grams of PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids).
We recommend consuming 3-6 Brazil Nuts per day as a natural selenium supplement.
Celery is so powerful that the smell alone can raise T levels in your body! Celery contains two important plant sterols. These are androstenol and androstenone. The names alone are already indicative of their positive effect in the action and production of androgens.
Celery also contains flavonoids that act as anti-estrogenic agents. One particular flavonoid with this kind of action is called luteolin. Another flavonoid, apigenin, is a natural T booster.
The best results are achieved if you eat your celery raw. Slice the stalks and enjoy together with other testosterone-boosting foods, such as blue cheese.
8. Broccoli (DIM)
Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables contain a compound called DIM. Diindolemethyl is a powerful anti-estrogen compound.
DIM works by improving estrogen metabolism, thereby lowering estrogen levels to allow more testosterone to be produced. High estrogen levels tend to inhibit T production and its release into its free form in serum.
9. Red Wine / Grapes
Grapes and red wine are rich natural sources of resveratrol. This compound is mainly known for its positive actions on the cardiovascular system, but it also helps improve hormone levels and sperm production in the body.
Resveratrol is a type of antioxidant. It helps protect the cells from toxins and free radicals.
