In order to get a better understanding of our own health, it may help to look at our bodies as complex chemical machines. In order to manufacture the chemicals necessary for proper functioning, our bodies require a certain balance of nutrients to be constantly present in our diet.
Whenever our diet begins to lack nutrients from quality proteins, an assortment of fruits, vegetables or whole grains, our bodies become unable to synthesize the building blocks necessary to maintain a chemical balance. Such imbalance may lead to a variety of physical and mental health complications, including depression and low testosterone.
Fortunately, there are many foods that have been known to naturally boost testosterone production and vitality. For example, certain seafood, including shrimp, salmon and tuna are rich in vitamin D, which is associated with testosterone production. Eggs and steak contain high levels of cholesterol, saturated fat and protein, which are essential for synthesizing muscle growth and hormone production. Foods that are rich in Zinc may also help, as this mineral plays an important role in testosterone production.
Nutrition aside, exercise is one of the most effective ways to naturally boost your testosterone and improve your mood. Strength training exercises, including squats, bench-presses and muscle-ups activate both muscular and nervous systems, that in turn stimulate the endocrine system and overall testosterone production.
Of course, none of these methods would be sufficient for those already suffering from testosterone deficiency, also known as Low-T. People affected by this medical condition need to consult an endocrinologist and undergo professionalmedical treatment. Fortunately, testosterone replacement therapy is available for those whose testosterone levels are continuously below the normal range. Still, a healthy diet and regular exercise will help you stay on top of your health and enjoy a meaningful and rewarding lifestyle.
