Brazil Nuts, Testosterone, and the Manliest Nut Butter You’ve Ever Tried
Nuts are a staple in any healthy diet…
But men, there’s one nut among the tens of dozens that carries tons of benefitsincluding powerful testosterone pumping perks that you need to get into your diet A.S.A.P.
The Brazil nut.
This South American wonder is essentially tailor-made for you testosterone health.
Interestingly, the testosterone boosting benefits of the Brazil nut is obvious, which is why you won’t find many studies about them…
However, they’ve been a quiet contributor to testosterone health for ages. Here’s how:
Stuffed with Selenium
In order for you to appreciate the significance of this first point, let me fill you in on what selenium does to your T-count.
Multiple studies have shown a direct correlation between selenium and testosterone levels.
High selenium levels create high testosterone levels. No questions. No disputes. Just simple, scientific stats.
Here’s where Brazil nuts come into play.
If you were to draft one food on the entire planet to increase selenium in your system, guess what, Brazil nuts are your top recruit.
They’re utterly unparalleled in their effectiveness.
Just 1-2 of these nuts (you read that right) will easily meet your selenium stipulations for the day.
And, as I stated above, an increase in selenium means an increase in testosterone, without question.
Have a handful of Brazil nuts a day and your testosterone will have no choice but to get up and stay up.
Antioxidants have a two-fold interest in bettering your testosterone.
The best offense is a good defense…
Antioxidants found in Brazil nuts play shut down defense for your testosterone by protecting sensitive testosterone from oxidation.
Oxidation of testosterone will result in raised estrogen levels, a big no-no for us men.
Add a handful of Brazil nuts to your daily diet and you’ll keep the estrogen away…
Also, antioxidants contained in Brazil nuts will proactively increase your T-count.
They do this by supporting your testes’ Leydig cells, which convert cholesterol into testosterone.
So you see, Brazil nuts are about as good of an asset as any to your testosterone health.
They play both sides of the ball, both protecting your testosterone point totals and increasing them as well…
Large Amounts of L-Arginine
Brazil nuts aren’t only the front-runner in selenium composition, but also in L-Arginine content…
L-Arginine is an essential amino acid that, like selenium, becomes even more necessary as you get older.
However, unlike selenium, L-Arginine’s effect on your testosterone health is rather indirect.
L-Arginine’s primary function is to improve blood flow to your body, including your testicles, where your testosterone is created.
This amino acid increases your nitric oxide production, meaning that the veins in your body will breathe easier, allowing for easier blood flow.
By doing this, L-Arginine gets your T to where it needs to be.
Also, as a building block of protein, L-Arginine increases testosterone through strength–training related gains…
The more you grow, the more testosterone your body produces, making Brazil nuts a go-to snack for bodybuilders and anyone looking to build an impressive physique.
All of these benefits are contained in only a handful of Brazil nuts.
By adding these little guys to your daily eating patterns, you’ll become increasingly familiar with the motto, “Big things come in small packages.”
But what’s a creative way you can get these Brazil nuts into your day-to-day without shopping around for a travel-sized trail mix every other day?
