You can boost your testosterone levels and lower your body fat naturally with vitamins and herbs by taking vitamins and supplements, you can also use hCG for men if you want to try something more medically-based. Below are some natural ways in which you can do this, but with any new treatment, a healthcare professional must be talked to first as a precaution.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (50mg twice a day)
DHEA is a naturally occurring hormone and either exerts benefits on its own, or can convert into both testosterone or estrogen depending on the body’s need. DHEA supplementation is potent for reducing the ‘effects of aging’, but appears quite unreliable in its benefits.
2. Creatine 25g per 7 days and 5g for next 3 weeks
Creatine is a molecule produced in the body. It stores high-energy phosphate groups in the form of phosphocreatine. Phosphocreatine releases energy to aid cellular function during stress. This effect causes strength increases after creatine supplementation, and can also benefit the brain, bones, muscles, and liver. Most of the benefits of creatine are a result of this mechanism.
3. Zinc (220 mg)
Zinc is one of the 24 micronutrients needed for survival. It is found in meat, egg, and legume products. Oysters are particularly good sources of zinc.
4. Fenugreek (500mg Fenugreek supplementation)
Trigonella foenum-graecum, commonly known as fenugreek, is a popular herb in Arabic regions and India. It has traditionally been used to enhance libido and masculinity.
5. Maca (2g of a 5:1 extract of Maca (10g bioactivity) or at least 3g)
Maca is the common name for Lepidium meyenii, a plant in the broccoli family. ‘Maca root’ refers to the root of the plant, which resembles a turnip. Maca is divided into categories based on the color of the root, which can be red, black, pink or yellow. Maca has historically been grown in Peru.
6. Ashwagandha ( 300 mg twice a day, 5 g of ashwagandha root daily)
The optimal dose is 6,000mg a day usually divided into three doses (2,000mg). Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an herb used in Ayurveda medicine. Ashwagandha means ‘Smell of Horse,’ which refers to the fresh root’s distinct horsey smell, and the traditional belief that ingesting the herb will confer the strength and virility of a horse.
