As we age our hormone supplies generally lessen with time. Your body stops producing as much testosterone, which could impact a variety of areas in your life, including libido, focus, energy, muscles, and more. Low T affects millions of Americans, yet many men choose not to seek treatment.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy Las Vegas is a popular method of managing Low T. You can receive this treatment from any Male Clinic in Las Vegas. If you’re already receiving TRT and looking for ways to boost your testosterone levels naturally simultaneously, we can help.
At Low T and ED Las Vegas, we specialize in helping men resolve Low T levels in an effort to reclaim control of their lives. Here are 10 natural supplements, herbs, and foods you can use to improve your testosterone at home.
Saw Palmetto is a fruit producing plant, which has multiple positive health effects, especially for men. According to Healthline, “It may help boost libido, increase sperm production, and improve symptoms of low T. A 2012 study found that taking saw palmetto can reduce the effects of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or an enlarged prostate, which affects your ability to urinate easily. The definitive cause for BPH is unknown, though testosterone may play a role in causing the prostate to grow.”
You can buy Saw Palmetto extract in capsules or drops online or in some pharmacies. As with any extract supplement, be sure to read the instructions carefully and only use as much as is suggested for your height, age, and weight.
It smells awful, tastes great, and helps boost testosterone naturally. Garlic has been recognized for the power to increase testosterone in animal subjects. The reason? It increases luteinizing hormone to signal your body to produce more of the sex hormone. It also activates receptors.
Garlic can be eaten, of course, but it can also be taken in capsule form to avoid the odor and taste, if it’s not your favorite seasoning.
Zinc is an immune boosting nutrient found in a variety of foods or taken as a supplement. It’s also a big supporter in the development of testosterone. WebMD explains, “There’s a reason why these mollusks are known for being great for fertility. They have almost five times your recommended daily dose of zinc. This mineral helps your body make testosterone. You can also get it in beef and beans.”
Fenugreek is a leafy plant often used to flavor curry powders. You can also find fenugreen supplements. According to VeryWellHealth.com A 2010 study in the Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism examined whether fenugreek affected strength, body composition, and hormone levels in men who participated in resistance training. The men received either 500mg fenugreek capsules or a placebo daily for eight weeks.” The result of the study found men lost body fat and had increased total testosterone levels.
This Ayurveda-born plant is used in a variety of ways to increase testosterone and libido. The root and the fruit of the plant are thought to improve virility and reduce symptoms of ED and Low T.
You can purchase Tribulus Terrestris as a supplement or drink it as a tea. Be careful about mixing this plant with other herbs or medications.
Another Ayurvedic medicinal plant, Ashwagandha is a member of the nightshade family. Both the berries and root of the plant have been used since ancient times in remedies of African, Ayurvedic and Indian making.
Muscle mass and testosterone levels are two things widely accepted to be altered by this plant. It affects cortisol and in turn, testosterone. It also improves semen quality and sperm count.
Ginger is known to have medicinal properties, commonly used to treat cold symptoms and boost the immune system. As it turns out, ginger also has the ability to increase testosterone. Medical News Today says, “According to the findings of a 2012 study, taking a daily ginger supplement for 3 months increased testosterone levels by 17.7 percent in a group of 75 adult male participants with fertility issues.”
Ginger can be taken as a supplement but is best used fresh or brewed in a tea. Cook ginger in baked goods for a wholesome homemade taste, or add it to salad, slaw, and stir fry for a fresh zing of flavor.
Eating more fish will increase fish oil intake naturally, but you can also order fish oil as a supplement. Fish oil is packed with essential omega 3 fatty acids which are great for heart health, brain health, and as it happens, sexual health.
Herring, mackerel and salmon are all great examples of fish with healthy fats. Studies conclude that increasing your intake of omega 3 fatty acid improves semen quantity and quality and improves overall testosterone count.
Another healthy fat which is helpful with testosterone is extra virgin olive oil. The oil is high in vitamin E and increases luteinizing hormone, which in turn promotes testosterone production.
Olive oil can be drizzled over salads, used for frying, or taken as a capsule supplement for those who don’t enjoy the taste.
The hemp plant has many uses from manufacturing clothing to manufacturing hand lotion and beyond. Oils from the hemp plant also help increase testosterone levels in small study groups. CBD oil is a good example of a hemp oil supplement.
Before considering hemp oil as a testosterone booster at home, consult with your doctor to ensure you aren’t receiving a product which could have mind altering effects on you. You should also check the legal implications of the product before purchase. Hemp and CBD oils aren’t legal in every state or country (whether they’re for testosterone purposes or not.)
