Are You Suffering From These Low Testosterone Symptoms

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 6 natural ways to increase low testosterone in men.

That’s right, it’s time to conquer low testosterone.

If you’re experiencing low testosterone, which a lot of guys are, it can be a very sensitive subject.

Benefits Of Testosterone

As men, it’s in our DNA to be strong, tough, and alpha.

Testosterone is the hormone that is attributed to all of this.

In addition to this, testosterone is also one of the main hormones involved in:

Low Testosterone Symptoms

Men suffering from low testosterone have a greater risk of experiencing the following low testosterone symptoms:

  • low sex drive and libido
  • poor sexual performance
  • more belly fat
  • less muscle growth
  • lower energy and vitality

In other words, having low testosterone sucks.

6 Natural Ways To Increase Low Testosterone In Men

One option to increase testosterone is via hormone replacement therapy, i.e. HRT.

However, like most things we talk about on Live Lean TV, we first recommend focusing on more natural approaches to boosting testosterone.

Here are 6 natural testosterone boosting tips to increase low testosterone in men.

#1. Get Enough of the Right Testosterone Boosting Vitamins And Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are essential to testosterone production, however there are 3 main ones to look for.

The three best vitamins and minerals to increase testosterone are:

  1. Zinc
  2. Magnesium
  3. Vitamin D

Foods high in zinc include:

Foods high in magnesium include:

Foods high in vitamin D include:

In addition to focusing on these foods high in vitamin D, it’s also important to enjoy the sun to get more vitamin D.

You can also supplement with a good multivitamin like Alpha Men from my friends at MyProtein.

Or supplement with each testosterone boosting vitamin and mineral on their own:

How Do I Know If I'm Deficient In Vitamins And Minerals?

Here’s an at home micronutrient test to see if you are deficient in these vitamins and minerals.

#2. Consume More Testosterone Boosting Healthy Fat And Less Sugar

Consuming healthy fats is essential to optimal hormone production, especially testosterone.

Add more testosterone boosting fats such as:

By eating more healthy fat, you should also reduce the number of calories consumed from sugar.

Too much sugar increases insulin production which creates a fat storing environment in the body, which then lowers testosterone.

Excessive body fat leads to a higher level of an aromatase enzyme, which converts testosterone into estrogen.

That sucks.

Let’s move on to testosterone boosting tip 3.

#3. Lift Heavy Weights, Compound Exercises, And Sprints

Best Exercises To Boost Testosterone Naturally For Men

The major, multi-joint compound movements are the best exercises to increase testosterone.

The best exercises to increase testosterone are:

These total body moves are more effective at boosting testosterone than isolation exercises, such as bicep curls.

It’s also important to focus on lifting heavier weight.

Higher intensity brief bursts of speed exercises, such as sprints, has also been shown to increase testosterone.

Keep it intense.

#4. Decrease Alcohol Consumption

Is Beer Healthy For You?

It’s funny how the mainstream media showcases “Alpha Men” chugging beer, since beer is a loaded in estrogenic hops, which is a testosterone destroying enemy.

This is why alcohol has been shown to increase the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.

But don’t freak out.

Having 1-2 drinks of red wine a week is not going to ruin you.

Just like everything else Live Lean related, keep it balanced, and in moderation.

#5. Decrease Exposure to Xenoestrogens

Xenoestrogens are chemicals often found in:

Xenoestrogens mimic estrogen in the body, thus harming the balance of testosterone production.

Avoid products containing any usage of the word “paraban” in the ingredients.

Toxic Skincare Ingredients

I did a full video post on xenoestrogens and other ingredients to watch out for here.

Also try to eat as much organic food as possible, and focus on eating cruciferous vegetables to help rid your body of these xenoestrogens.

I filmed a full video post about the 6 belly fat killing cruciferous vegetables here.

Lastly, never heat up plastic, and replace your plastic bottles and tupperware, with glass.

Let’s move on to the final testosterone boosting tip.

#6. Get Better Sleep

Yes, quality sleep is essential to testosterone production.

How Much Sleep Do You Really Need To Lose Weight?

Strive for 7-8 hours of sleep, earlier in the night.

Research shows the best quality of sleep occurs around 10pm.

Make sure you go to bed earlier, and get up earlier.

It will take time for your body to adapt to this new sleep cycle, but a relaxing chamomile tea and reading a book, will help settle your mind and body for rest.
