After checking your restlessness to know more about this hormone after having written the first entry of advice to increase testosterone boosting foods.
Today, I bring you Vitónica, the second entry with more keys to increase your levels of said hormone and thus enjoy all its benefits.
- Add broccoli to your diet. This vegetable contains good amounts of Vitamin A, essential for the production of testosterone and a component called diindolylmethane (DIM) that prevents the transformation of testosterone into estrogen.
- A good bath of hot water with a good orange juice. Stress causes us to secrete the dreaded cortisol, a hormone that reduces our testosterone levels. It is proven that a good bath with hot water reduces stress and a good amount of Vitamin C reduces cortisol, therefore this is the perfect combination.
- Sprinkle your meals with wheat germ. It is the most nutritious part of wheat grain and contains high amounts of zinc, responsible for converting estrogen to testosterone and prevents the enzyme aromatase from acting. So, go to the supermarket and flood the cereals, the salads and the wheat germ yogurts.
- Weight training, in the afternoon. It is demonstrated that the performance of heavy loads in the afternoon, makes the testosterone levels more stable and higher throughout the day than the athletes who trained in the morning.
