Choosing the right nutritional supplements is important to your health and can maximize testosterone production. But nutritional supplements, like prescribed medications, will not replace a healthy lifestyle and nutrition, as well as other recommendations for increasing testosterone in men .
- Food additives protect our body from the negative effects of the environment, self-destruction, neutralize the damage caused by toxins.
- Certain nutritional supplements improve the production and quality of testosterone, accelerate its effect on the body as a whole.
Multivitamins - on guard of health
Few of us get all the necessary vitamins and trace elements. If we want to support blood cells, maintain their ability to transport oxygen, improve the functioning of nerve cells or help the flow of biochemical reactions in the body, then good multivitamins will help you with this.
Supplemental Vitamins and Minerals
Despite the fact that the vitamin-mineral complex contains all the main components, the addition of certain substances will only improve the situation, since Components contained in multivitamins do not always meet the daily needs of the body.
Zinc. Modern nutrition and lifestyle lead to a partial zinc deficiency. Processed packaged products do not contain any zinc. Zinc is involved in more than 500 biochemical reactions in the body and is necessary for the production of testosterone.
Take 50 mg of zinc daily.
Calcium. The human body contains 206 bones, which are constantly being restored or destroyed, depending on the impact on them. Taking the necessary amount of calcium, you help testosterone to restore bone. If you let the bones weaken, testosterone molecules are sent to the bones and are involved in their recovery, instead of performing their function.
Under 50 take 1000 mg of calcium; after 50 years - 1500 mg of calcium daily.
Vitamin C. One of the properties of vitamin C is the neutralization of one of the opponents of testosterone - the stress hormone cortisol . This helps maintain a balance between cortisol and testosterone in favor of the latter.
Take 500 mg to 50 years; after 50 years — 1,000 mg of vitamin C daily.
Selenium. Like iron and zinc, selenium is a trace element that is involved in several biochemical reactions. Selenium has a direct effect on testosterone and childbirth. Spermatozoa matured in a state of deficiency of selenium, have problems with mobility. Also, this trace element helps to detoxify the body , primarily from environmental and industrial toxins.
Take 200 mcg of selenium daily.
Vitamin D. Natural vitamin D is produced in the skin under 15-minute exposure to sunlight. Most men do not receive the required amount of sunlight, and with it vitamin D. This vitamin has a great influence on the status of testosterone, primarily due to the increased effect of calcium in the body, as well as by reducing the effectiveness of estrogen in men.
Under 50 take 400 ME; after 50 years, 800 IU of vitamin D daily.
Vitamin E. This vitamin helps cleanse the body of harmful products (free radicals) of its own biochemical reactions. Vitamin E is especially recommended for overweight men who are at risk for developing diabetes.
Under 50 take 100 IU, after 50 years take 200 IU of vitamin E daily.
Vitamins of group B. The group of these vitamins is involved in more than 15,000 biological processes occurring in our body.
(ниацин), витамин В 5 (пантотеновая кислота), В 6 (пиридоксин), В 9 (фолиевая кислота), В 12 (цианокобаламин). Vitamins of group B include vitamin B 1 (thiamine), B 2 (riboflavin), B 3 (niacin), vitamin B 5 (pantothenic acid), B 6 (pyridoxine), B 9 (folic acid), B 12 (cyanocobalamin ).
Fish fat. Contains essential amino acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, which have a large list of health benefits. These amino acids are not replenished by the body; therefore, the only way to obtain them is to eat foods rich in these substances or to take food supplements.
Other nutritional supplements
Nettle root extract. The positive effect of this dietary supplement is reduced to the release of testosterone associated with SHBG ( sex hormone binding globulin ). Because of its strong connection with this protein, testosterone loses its biological activity and ceases to benefit the body. Nettle root extract takes the place of the testosterone molecule, thus freeing the androgens from binding. As a result, the blood becomes more active fraction of testosterone, and less of its inactive form.
Indole-3-carbinol (I3C). It is recommended to receive only overweight men. Indole-3-carbinol is a phytochemical that is naturally found in vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, radish, turnips, i.e. in cruciferous vegetables. The beneficial properties of this supplement are in its fight against estrogen.
Dosage. If your weight is within ideal, take 250 mg of nettle root extract twice a day. If you are overweight, take I3C: with an excess weight of less than 23 kg - 200 mg once a day, more than 23 kg - 200 mg 2 times a day. It is advisable to take I3C in the following mode: the course of treatment is 3 weeks, 1 week is a break.
