The Top 21 Foods Rich In Testosterone

The Top 21 Foods Rich In Testosterone

Testosterone is the talk of the town these days…

As it should be for men like you and me, because the richer our testosterone levels are, the more productive we’ll be in the boardroom, bedroom, weight room, playroom and everywhere in between…

But there’s one room in particular that we can really make this testosterone-driven productivity happen…

The kitchen.

The kitchen is the primary place where you can control your testosterone levels…

Because the foods you eat make a major difference in how much of your most powerful male sex hormone your body will produce.

So here’s the deal, my friend…

You want to eat foods rich in testosterone, meaning that they’ll take your T-count to new heights every time you cook ‘em up, chop ‘em up, and grill ‘em up…

So let’s take a look at the best foods for getting the job done…

Here are 21 foods rich in testosterone:

1) Whole Eggs

When it comes to helping your body help itself to more testosterone, you can’t overstate the importance of whole eggs in your diet…

The HDL cholesterol found in eggs (which has been shown to improve your heart health by the way) acts as a direct precursor to testosterone production.

study published in the Journal of Vascular Biology discovered a direct correlation between the amount of HDL cholesterol a man has in his bloodstream and the health of his testosterone levels… The more HDL cholesterol, the higher the testosterone. It’s really that simple.

Also, whole eggs contain a healthy amount of saturated fats, which are necessary for optimal testosterone levels…

Just like the cholesterol-testosterone connection, studies have drawn a straight line between saturated fat intake and male sex hormone health as well.

So heat up your frying pan, crack some eggs over it more a massive boost in your T-count.

2) Organic Bacon

I’m sure I’m getting a standing ovation all over the globe with this one…

Well, maybe I’m not. But bacon definitely is…

Organic bacon is one of the top foods rich in testosterone that you should add to your plate of eggs everyday…

Like, eggs, bacon is filled with HDL cholesterol, which again, is GOOD cholesterol…

As I mentioned above there’s a direct correlation between the amount of cholesterol you consume and the amount of testosterone you have surging through your veins, so adding more HDL cholesterol to your plate is a win-win every time.

Plus, like eggs, bacon is high in T-boosting saturated fats.

So what we’ve known all along is actually true… You can’t beat bacon.  

But let me add a little caveat here…

Not every slice of bacon will make you more of a man… In fact, some cuts of bacon are poked, prodded and pumped with estrogen, the female hormone that is responsible for beer bellies, man-boobs, and male menopause…

So the next time you’re at the store, make sure you pick up organic bacon that isn’t filled with female hormones that’ll have you spinning your wheels in a cycle of self-destruction…

And the next time your doctor tells you to lay off the bacon hit him with the facts…

It’s good for you. Period.

3) Avocado

Can you tell I’m sticking with a breakfast theme here?

Slice this flavorful fruit over your batch of scrambled eggs and bacon and you’ve got a morning masterpiece for your anabolic hormones…

Avocados are loaded with monounsaturated fats, the second most important fat for testosterone production…

They’re also packed with more than 20 essential vitamins and minerals that have proven to be beneficial for testosterone health including vitamin A, K2, C, B2, B5, B6, zinc magnesium and copper…

Zinc and magnesium, in particular, have been shown by multiple studies to have a direct impact on testosterone levels (studystudy), and unfortunately, most men are missing these essential minerals in their diets…

So don’t miss out on the micros…

Add avocado, one of the top foods rich in testosterone to your everyday diet… It’ll play as a perfect complement to any dish you cook up.

And speaking of perfect complements to any dish you decide to cook up, check out my 97 Science-Backed Foods That Boost Testosterone here.

4) Oats

Oats rank among the top foods rich in testosterone for a couple of reasons…

First of all, oats are a complete source of carbohydrates…

And despite what Jenny Craig and Mr. Atkins have led you on to believe, carbohydrates are not the devil…

Especially for men like yourself who are looking to increase your testosterone levels…

See when men don’t consume an adequate amount of carbohydrates each day, our stress hormone, cortisol, begins to increase.

Which is a problem because cortisol is essentially your testosterone’s kryptonite, and when your cortisol levels increase, your testosterone levels decrease.

So getting a solid amount of carbohydrates (40% of your daily caloric intake) is a great way to make sure your testosterone levels will be top notch…

Oats are also beneficial for testosterone because they contain avenacosides, which has been reported to increase luteinizing hormone (LH), which, like cholesterol, is a direct precursor to testosterone production.

Oats are easy to cook up and make for a great breakfast option for better testosterone.

5) Grass-Fed Beef

A list of foods that will make men more manly wouldn’t be complete without some red meat…

But it’s not because of the protein content…

Protein is the least important macronutrient that you need to focus on for boosting your testosterone levels…

But hey, protein deficiency will cause your T-count to suffer, too.

Grass-fed beef is also packed with saturated fat – your testosterone’s favorite kind…

So fire up the grill and get out the grass-fed beef…

Studies have shown that grass-fed beef is packed with essential vitamins and minerals that grain-fed beef simply isn’t. Grass-fed beef contains 4x more vitamin K2, 5x more Omega-3s and 2x more CLA than their grain-fed counterparts…

Not to mention more vitamin A, vitamin B, potassium, zinc, and phosphorus…

I’m sure that you weren’t expecting the vitamins and minerals in grass-fed beef to be the focal point of their hormone effectiveness, but hey, now you can tell your wife that you need to eat more beef for the vitamin content.

6) Potatoes

Any and all potatoes except for the fried kind at the local fast food joint will do your testosterone a load of good…

Like I mentioned above, carbohydrates are essential for healthy testosterone levels…

But not just any carbohydrates… Primarily, gluten-free carbohydrates.

Potatoes are a diverse gluten-free, guilt-free carbohydrate source that you can add to just about any meal.

Sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, Idaho potatoes, white potatoes, purple potatoes… eat all the potatoes…

And if you want to pack your potato with an even stronger anabolic punch, add some…

7) Grass-Fed Butter

Feel free to throw away the margarine, butter powder, and spray on stuff, and get back to the good stuff…

Real grass-fed butter is one of the top foods rich in testosterone that you can add to just about any dish and makes just about anything taste heavenly…

Butter is made mostly up of saturated fats, the primary fat for better T levels…

Plus, it’s a rather unexpected source of testosterone boosting vitamins like K2, D, and A…

So slather some butter on your next potato or piece of whole-grain toast… And just for the sake of being scandalous, feel free to make that a liberal slab of butter.

 8) Olive Oil

And speaking of foods that you can cook your food in, let’s add olive oil to the mix…

Unlike just about everything else on this list so far, I’m pretty close to positive that the whole world gives a thumbs up to olive oil as a dieting staple…

Like avocado, olive oil contains mostly monounsaturated fats, a testosterone favorite.

In one 3-week study, which tested the effects of olive oil on Moroccan men, participants saw a 17.4% increase in testosterone.

It’s the undisputed champ of every other cooking oil on the planet…

So cook everything in olive oil and boost your testosterone levels… That’s a simple adjustment to your diet that can turbocharge your T in no time.

9) Blue Cheese

Like most cheese options, blue cheese is packed with testosterone-boosting saturated fat…

But there’s a reason why blue cheese has made this list of foods rich in testosterone while the others haven’t…

Blue Cheese contains probiotics and healthy gut bacteria.

See, your stomach health has a direct impact on the way your brain communicates with the rest of your body – including the signal that improves testosterone production.

Plus, when your gut’s in disarray your testosterone levels take a dive because your cortisol levels spike from the inflammation caused by bad stomach bacteria.

So keep your gut healthy. Keep your cortisol low. Increase your testosterone.

Sprinkle blue cheese in a salad, on a baked potato or a steak to take your T up a notch.

10) Salmon

Salmon is a fatty fish that’s high in HDL cholesterol, packed with protein and always makes for a delicious lunch or dinner dish…

But those aren’t the only reasons why salmon made the cut on the 21 foods rich in testosterone list…

Salmon is high in selenium, a mineral that most men, unfortunately, don’t get enough of…

Selenium has been shown to increase the testosterone levels of men in their 30’s, which should make salmon a staple food in your day-to-day…

11) White Rice

Remember all those times you thought you were being a good ole boy by ordering white rice when you went out with your lady?

You were really screwing yourself…

See, white rice is an excellent source of carbohydrates, which you need to boost testosterone levels…

But unlike brown rice, white rice won’t suppress your testosterone from becoming your body’s most potent form of testosterone (dihydrotestosterone).

So instead of digging a grave for your testosterone potential, cook all of your stir-fry, eat all of your burritos, put all of your salmon with white rice.

12) Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts are the best nut that you can snack on to improve your testosterone levels…

Why?

Well, because, like salmon, they’re packed with selenium. In fact, just 2 Brazil nuts have been shown to provide you with an entire day’s worth of selenium…

Which has incredible implications for your testosterone levels…

But here’s what you need to do to step up your Brazil nut “game.” Find a Brazil nut “guy.” In the states, one of the only ways to get your hands on Brazil nuts is when you buy a peanut mix with a few scattered in there…

The problem is that peanuts aren’t good for your T-count…

Get a Brazil nut guy…

Now… Let’s start cooking with some gas, shall we?  

13) Spinach

Spinach is a staple in any T-boosting salad.

This green actually lowers estrogen levels because of its chlorophyll content while also boosting testosterone with its magnesium, vitamin C, and vitamin E content.

14) Broccoli

Broccoli decreases estrogen levels and increases testosterone levels by 50% if you eat it regularly… A 1-2 punch that makes for a dependable side dish every time.

15) Onions

The anabolic potency that lies within onions has had men all over the world juicing onions and chugging a tear-jerking concoction for the sake of their sex hormones…

One study that studied the effects of onion juice on male rats discovered a 300% increase in testosterone as a result…

So if you’re not up for chugging a cup of onion juice every morning, it’ll do you some good to add onions to your salads at least.

16) Pomegranates

One study revealed that pomegranates can increase testosterone levels by almost 25%, placing them on this list of top foods rich in testosterone.

This fruit has also been shown to make bedroom fantasies come true…

Pomegranates are known as an aphrodisiac, increasing nitric oxide production and blood flow for harder erections and improved sex drive.

17) Raisins

Who knew those little boxes of raisins you used to love as a kid actually gave you an anabolic boost?

Raisins are full of, resveratrol – a known T-friendly antioxidant…

Plus, they contain boron, which has also been applauded as a rare testosterone boosting trace mineral.

So the next time you throw raisins in your kid’s lunch, save a little box for yourself.

Oh, and speaking of boron, you’ll never guess what’s next

18) Honey

Honey is full of boron, which, like I just mentioned, boosts testosterone…

Plus, it improves nitric oxide production, which will open up your blood vessels for better erections and better sex.

19) Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are loaded with zinc, which has been shown on multiple occasions to directly increase testosterone levels…

Pumpkin seeds are also packed with magnesium, another mineral that helps raise testosterone and other growth hormones such as IGF-1, which will improve muscle growth and fat burning efforts, which then increases your testosterone levels even more.

20) Black Beans

Like pumpkin seeds, black beans are filled with zinc, the essential T-boosting mineral…

Plus, black beans contain plenty of vitamin D, which has been shown to increase testosterone levels as well.

Black beans are one of the most diverse foods on this list of foods rich in testosterone. Add them to your eggs, shredded chicken tacos, or as a side dish to your grass-fed beef.

21) Hot Sauce

A recent French study showed that men who consume spicy food, in this case, hot sauce, have higher testosterone levels when compared to men who stay away from the spice…

Dump it on your eggs, in your potato, on a batch of rice
