Popular Testosterone Boosters

Want To Boost Your Testosterone Level?

Almost every guy out there would like to have an increase in his testosterone level. Unless of course he is in his early 20’s when testosterone produced in the body is about as high as it gets.

We have heard about all sorts of testosterone boosters. Here we discuss a few of the more popular ones and talk a little bit about what they do.

Keep in mind that these are in no order of importance.

King Oyster

King Oyster is a type of a mushroom that contains several bioactive molecules. It appears as though King Oyster has the ability to boost our immune system, suppress the absorption of fatty acids as well as increase testosterone levels (potentially significantly).

Maca

Maca is a plant that is in the broccoli family and comes out of Peru. It has both aphrodisiac properties and hormonal boosting properties. It is often recommended to guys in training who want to boost their energy and overall motivation.

D-Aspartic Acid

D-AA actually goes to work on the central brain to release hormones into the body. Many users experience a significant boost in energy, power and motivation. They also experience an increased libido.

Horny Goat Weed

Traditionally used in Chinese medicine to boost testosterone and increase energy. It also appears to control cortisol levels (which rise when we are stressed). When our cortisol rises, our testosterone decreases.

DHEA

DHEA is actually something that the body produces naturally. However just as testosterone levels drop as we age, DHEA levels drop as well. These supplements are taken to turn into testosterone in the body, thus providing a boost to improve workouts and muscle mass.

Fenugreek

This herb is popular in India and many Arabic areas. Many weight trainers take Fenugreek to increase energy and testosterone, but also to raise insulin levels. This brings the benefit of building muscle mass faster.

Eurycoma Longifolia

This is a very popular testosterone booster. Many users state that they are able to reduce fat and increase muscle without making other changes to their routine. There has actually be quite a few studies done with regard to this herb and results seem to point to the ability to boost testosterone levels.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for both men and women. In fact, there are many people who are deficient in this vitamin and might not even know it. A simple test from their doctor will let them know. In men, however if they are low in Vitamin D they are probably low in testosterone as well.

Tribulus Terrestris

This is another rather popular supplement among bodybuilders. Studies seem to indicate that tribulus can increase testosterone levels.

If you decide to try supplements, it is important to remember to also be sure to eat a diet that supports your weight training goals. Other things to think about include getting proper sleep, reducing stress and of course working muscles properly and effectively.
