Fermentation would be good for testosterone since this study says that fermented carrot juice increased γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) one of the things we need to develop good sleep and better testosterone levels. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36523330/ And it also increases lactic acid, which this source of information tells us is present in the first phases of testosterone biosynthesis. https://www.masmusculo.com.es/workout/acido-lactico-mas-testosterona/#prettyPhoto Even though it is in Spanish, I would like to know if anyone agrees with this or not and why.
This is a lovely drink you can make for the hot summer weather. (Shoutout to the wife; she makes it weekly). Ingredients: 6 lemons , 10 cm chunk of fresh ginger, white sugar, ice & water. Instructions: juice the lemon juice & add it to an empty jug. Grate 3-7 cm chunk of ginger into the jug. Add 3-5 thin slices of fresh ginger. Add 1 tablespoon of white sugar. Add a generous amount of ice & finally add the cold water. Mix well. P.S. if the taste of lemon is sour you can add half an extra tablespoon of sugar.
Today, let's dive deep into the mineral that often goes unnoticed but plays a starring role in maintaining optimal testosterone levels – magnesium! 🏋️♂️ 1. The Testosterone Connection: Magnesium is an unsung hero when it comes to male hormonal health. It's involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including those related to testosterone synthesis, secretion, and receptor function. 2. Testosterone Synthesis Support: Magnesium is required for the conversion of cholesterol into testosterone. Without sufficient magnesium, this conversion process could slow down, potentially leading to lower testosterone levels. 3. SHBG Regulation: Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is a protein that binds to testosterone, rendering it less active. Magnesium helps regulate SHBG levels, ensuring that testosterone remains more available for use by the body. 4. Cellular Receptor Sensitivity: Magnesium assists in maintaining the sensitivity of androgen receptors on cells. When these receptors are sensitive, they respond better to the presence of testosterone, amplifying its effects. 5. Stress Reduction: Chronic stress can lower testosterone levels, but magnesium has a calming effect on the nervous system. By reducing stress and its associated cortisol levels, magnesium indirectly helps maintain healthy testosterone levels. 6. Sleep Support: Magnesium promotes relaxation and supports healthy sleep patterns. Quality sleep is crucial for testosterone production, as the majority of testosterone is released during sleep's restorative phases. 7. Athletic Performance: For the active souls out there, magnesium contributes to muscle function, energy metabolism, and overall performance. Elevated testosterone levels can further enhance muscle growth and recovery. Including Magnesium in Your Lifestyle: Here's how you can ensure you're getting enough magnesium to support testosterone production: - Supplement: If your diet falls short of magnesium, consider a supplement after consulting a healthcare professional. Magnesium supplements come in various forms, such as magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate.
A study conducted with normal and diabetic rats found something interesting about taking cinnamon with ginger and the effect it had on testosterone and diabetic rats. The study found that both diabetic and non-diabetic rats had an even greater increase in testosterone than those that had eaten just ginger and cinnamon as well. 100mg/Kg of ginger and 75mg/Kg of cinnamon were applied. And in the study it was shown that the level of antioxidants was much higher with the two than separated. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25392573/
