See the foods that boost testosterone production. I bring together to create my T boosting omelette. Check out the ingredients & why they help boost testosterone here! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what I personally eat on a daily basis. So decided to publish some articles. Which are looking at the different meals I have on a daily basis. So you can get a better idea, of how you can potentially eat. For an all natural testosterone booster as well.
So what I’m going to do is take you through what I have for breakfast most days which is my testosterone boosting omelette. We will cover the key ingredients I typically use and provide a bit of info on on why they are foods that boost testosterone production. Now bare in mind, I’m no maestro in the kitchen, so I’ll just be listing the ingredients I use as supposed to giving you a step by step recipe.
Just before we get in to the list itself, I just wanted to make it clear that where possible you should opt for organic produce and ingredients. The pesticides used on non organic vegetables and the chemicals fed to non organic animals negative impact your testosterone production and potentially your wider health.
Well an omelette isn’t an omelette without the main ingredients of eggs; and what a main ingredient they are when it comes to testosterone boosting. Eggs are high in saturated fats & a great source of cholesterol, which are the “main building blocks” of testosterone.
The yolk is a nutritional powerhouse & source of testosterone increasing vitamins D, K2 & B12. If you’re looking to increase your testosterone for increased muscle mass and fat loss, eggs are also a great source of protein. So great on that level as well, for those who are looking to increase muscle mass.
I recommend using butter as supposed to a cooking oil. It is another great source of saturated fats, cholesterol and vitamin K2.
White Button Mushrooms
White button mushrooms inhibit the production of the aromatase enzyme. Aromatase coverts testosterone in to estrogen, so reducing levels will lead to an automatic increase in T. White button mushrooms are also a good source of Vitmain D which as mentioned, provide an all natural testosterone booster.
Yes it makes your wee smell and is often paired with eggs; but it also is very effective for testosterone boosting. This is due to its nutrient profile, asparagus is a good source of magnesium, vitamin K, vitamin B & D-aspartic acid, all which help boost T levels. It is often overlooked; but asparagus should be included in most lists of foods that boost testosterone production.
Scallions/ Spring Onions
I find they help the dish taste a bit sweeter but the benefit doesn’t stop there, they also are a great source of vitamin K1. It’s actually K2 that you need for improved testosterone production. That being said K1 does convert to K2. K2 directly is best but K1 is certainly a plus! They are also pretty high in magnesium. Making them an effective all natural testosterone booster.
Hard cheeses essentially have the same nutrition profile of butter, they are a great source of saturated fats, cholesterol and Vitamin K2. Plus for me, an omelette just isn’t omelette without at least a small amount of cheese! Just be careful in terms of volumes, due to the calories.
So first off, salt goes great with eggs and secondly and more importantly for this article, it can help provide an all natural testosterone booster. There are a couple of different reasons as to why salt is effective at testosterone boosting and they are as follows.
Having a healthy amount of salt in your diet reduces cortisol production, cortisol is the stress hormone and this inhibits testosterone production. Secondly, Iodine improves the health of your thryoid, which is responsible for for hormone production. Using idodized salt increases iodine intake. One thing I do need to highlight with salt is, I’d only suggest adding to your food if your intake of pre made/ highly processed foods is minimal.
Parsley is probably one of the more boring seasonings out their; however when it comes to testosterone production, parsley is anything but boring! This is due to parsley being a source of apigenin a flavone which leads to greater conversion of cholesterol to free testosterone. This is an especially good pairing with eggs, as they are an excellent source of cholesterol, as are several other foods I include in my omelette.
I suggest opting for non salted, bacon. I personally prefer pork, as it’s a great source of multiple testosterone boosting minerals including selenium, thiamine, Zinc, Niacin and B12. Turkey has high levels of Zinc, selenium, niacin and B12 & l-tryptophan. L-tryptophan aids stress relief & helps you to sleep better, reduced stress and a better nights sleep will help with testosterone production as well.
