Testosterone is the MAN HORMONE. Without it you become like a little girl. Modern society bombards us with poisonous junk food, chemicals and feminism, all contributing to the decline of testosterone and masculinity.
In order to be a true man you must have HIGH TESTOSTERONE and LOW ESTROGEN Levels. Estrogen is the female hormone, and unfortunately a lot of modern chemicals have estrogenic effects on the human body. This is not good, and we must take action to minimize our exposure to these compounds.
Having high testosterone is usually a result of maintaining optimal health and avoiding exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals.
GET 8+ HOURS SLEEP PER NIGHT
Your hormones are produced while you are asleep, particularly growth hormone and testosterone. When you sleep your body becomes anabolic, resulting in growth and repair. A lack of sleep will lower your testosterone and reduce your ability to recover from hard workouts. So make sure to get to bed when the sun goes down and wake up when the sun comes up.
EAT A NATURAL DIET WITH A LOT OF SATURATED FATS AND CHOLESTEROL
If you want to have high testosterone you must eat real foods such as MEAT, FISH, EGGS AND DAIRY. Make sure to eat a lot of saturated fats from butter and fatty cuts of steak.
Saturated Fats and Cholesterol are vital nutrients and are essential to testosterone production. Cholesterol is the precursor to testosterone, so do not fear it like modern medicine says. Humans evolved hunting and eating animals, as well as catching a variety of seafood. Modern health foods such as Oatmeal, Brown Rice and Vegetable Oils all decrease testosterone and also destroy your gut health. Avoid SOY at all costs as it contains Phytoestrogens in which mimic the female sex hormone in your body; this is also true of many other plant foods.
LIFT HEAVY WEIGHTS
Lifting weights will build your strength, your muscles and your confidence. Having more muscle in the right places will give you a more masculine body shape, along with better posture. This will help you create a more powerful and dominating presence.
Compound movements such as Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press, Military Press, Barbell Rows and Pull Ups have all been shown to have a positive effect on testosterone levels. Just don’t over do it as too much exercise will result in increased cortisol (stress hormone) which will, in fact, lower testosterone. About 45 minutes- 1 hour 3 days per week Full Body style training is best to maximize hormones and recovery.
DRINK SPRING WATER FROM GLASS BOTTLES
Plastic Bottles contain BPA. This is a compound that is very similar to estrogen and will lower your testosterone. Problem is all our food and water comes in plastic these days.
Also, tap water is filled with chemicals and fluoride which are harmful to your health, let alone testosterone production. So it is ideal to drink quality spring water out of a glass bottle. Or you can filter your water at home and drink out of a Stainless Steel bottle.
Look at the back of most shampoos, soaps, shaving cream, toothpaste and household cleaning products. You will see a bunch of weird chemicals that you cannot pronounce. The truth is many of these synthetic chemicals are linked to cancers, mental illness and also compromised hormonal health. Many chemicals in personal care and cleaning products are xenoestrogens which mimic estrogen in the human body.
The solution is to use Natural products. And to be honest with you, not many products are needed. Natural bar soap and baking soda have many uses.
KEEP BODY FAT AT 10-15%
Estrogen is stored in body fat. So having high body fat levels will result in a higher level of estrogen in the body. On the other hand, having too low body fat will plummet your testosterone levels, as seen by many bodybuilders/physique athletes when they get to single digit body fat %. Having too little body fat will cause a lack of energy, brain fog and low sex drive.
The best thing to do is keep yourself in the optimal range of body fat and maintain this long term. 10-15% body fat is the sweet spot for optimal testosterone and overall health for MEN. Women need much more body fat, in the range of 20-30%.
TAKE SUPPLEMENTS FOR HEALTH AND HORMONES
The icing on the cake, is to use supplements to fill in the gaps in your nutrition. There is also a variety of herbs and compounds that can aid in boosting testosterone and lowering estrogen.
COD LIVER OIL is one of the best supplements you can use to maximize your health. It has an ideal ratio of DHA and EPA Omega 3 Fatty Acids.
RED BEAST is a great, all natural testosterone booster.
RED PCT2.0 is a great, all natural estrogen lowering supplement.
CREATINE MONOHYDRATE has been shown to increase testosterone production and ATP energy output.
ASHWAGANDHA is a good natural herb for natural testosterone boosting as well as cortisol reduction
