9 Seasonings Which Are Foods That Boost Testosterone Production


So There Are Herbs & Spices That Can Be Considered Foods That Boost Testosterone Production?

Yes there certainly are and that is what we are going to look at in this article. We will be looking at what these herbs and seasoning are and why they are a natural testosterone booster, so let’s get cracking with the list.



Parsley is probably one of the most boring things flavour wise that you can put in your spices cupboard. What it lacks in flavour though is more than made up for, when you look at the properties that boost testosterone production!

Parsley contains a flavone called apigenin, apigenin enables better the conversion of cholesterol to free testosterone. Free testosterone is ultimately the most important kind, so ignore the blandness and add to your food!

Baking Soda

Baking soda doesn’t necessarily spring to mind when thinking about seasoning. With that being said it can add some “pep” to your meat seasoning (I like adding it my chili chicken & pork seasoning). It is believed it can add a bit of pep to T and be a natural testosterone booster.

This is due to increased activation of protein Kinase (PKA) and there has been evidence that shows PKA can improve the sensitivity of testosterone receptors. This allows for more testosterone to enter the cell and ultimately boost testosterone levels.

Fenugreek is a herb that is often found in curry dishes. Research suggests that it helps boost testosterone production by reducing the amount of enzymes that convert testosterone into estrogen. In studies it has shown that men who took fenugreek, saw increases in both total and free/ available testosterone levels.

Fenugreek may also be something you want to consider supplementing with. You can find out more about supplementing with it and the research mentioned above, in the article below.

Lemon Juice


While not a conventional seasoning, lemon juice can be a nice addition to meat seasoning & some meals as a whole. More important are the high levels of Vitamin C, which reduces the levels of cortisol in the body. If you’re not aware, cortisol restricts the production of testosterone, so the lowered cortisol will help boost testosterone further.



I imagine this is something you all have at home in your cupboard or on your spice rack. You may be surprised to know that it can help boost testosterone. This is due to the Iodine content, Iodine helps the thyroid gland with hormone production and the hormones include testosterone.

Organic Honey


Honey is high in Boron, a mineral that is a natural testosterone booster. While honey can be used to make slightly sweeter dishes. It is still a natural source of sugar, high amounts of sugar in your diet will spike insulin levels inhibiting testosterone production.

So keep use minimal or save for special occasions when you fancy a slightly sweeter meal. You can find out more about Boron can help boost testosterone production here:

Ginger is a common household spice (you probably have some at home). There is strong research demonstrating that it is a natural testosterone booster and can reduce inflammation (which also leads to increased T).

There have been several studies conducted in to the effects of ginger on testosterone production. Most of these have done on rats but one of the few involving humans showed an increase of 17% in testosterone levels.

This was after three months of supplementation with ginger. You can find out more about this study and the volumes you likely need to achieve those results in this article:

Garlic contains a compound called allicin which is shown to boost testosterone production. Garlic also contains antioxidants which will reduce inflammation in the body and importantly the testes. This means the testes will function more efficiently, which also means increased testosterone production.

Turmeric/ Curcumin


Turmeric is another common staple in curries, it is an extremely powerful antioxidant and can reduce estrogen levels. Its anti-inflammatory capabilities support overall hormonal health and help elevate testosterone levels.

There have been a number of studies conducted on rats monitoring their testosterone when given turmeric. All have shown a significant increase in T production.

    Great job with this post! I was wondering, do you know if soy reduces testosterone, or if it increases estrogen? I switched to soy milk because I heard regular milk wasn’t good for you but then I heard someone say it increases estrogen. Do you know anything about that?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey James,

      Thanks, I’m glad that you found it useful.

      Soy is estrogenic, research is divided whether that leads to an increased levels of estrogen in the body.

      With regards to testosterone production, soy does damage the thyroid though. This negatively impacts testosterone production & your wider health!

      So in short, I’d advise swapping out the soy milk, I’d opt for organic dairy milk, goat milk; or just dry dropping milk altogether, vegetables like spinach are a great source of calcium, so you don’t need dairy to get your calcium, if that is why you have milk.

    Hi Nate,

    Since I’m a fitness enthusiast, testosterone is quite interesting to me. This article shows what I’ve told a lot of people before, which is that supplements such as so-called “testosterone boosters” are absolutely not needed in order to maintain high testosterone levels.

    Thank you for your insight!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Kevin,

      Yeah testosterone booster supplements are interesting! As I tell my clients and advise on this site, a few testosterone boosting supplements are very effective but in reality they are only useful, if they contain ingredients that your diet is lacking in!

      Your diet needs to be looked at first and that is why foods that boost testosterone production are your best starting place!

  4. Elliot says:

    Wow, the content of your article is real educational. I’m one person who doesn’t look at the natural ingredients as boosters of testosterone.

    I always think of drug boosters associated. After reading your site, I realize that I need to stick to natural boosters. I’m a fan of garlic, ? lemon and Ginger. Truly speaking I never get time to look at the other ingredients.

    Thank you for information.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Elliot,

      Yeah a lot of people overlook natural ingredients and foods that boost testosterone production. The pharmaceutical companies have done a good job of convincing people that drugs are the only way forwards. In reality supplements are there to cover the areas of your diet that is lacking.
