Here are two ways to amplify Testosterone naturally. There’s no way around it, testosterone levels effect your ability to build muscle and burn body fat. If your testosterone is low you’re going to have a hard time building muscle… worse yet, you’ll also have a hard time burning fat. The there’s the low sex drive. Even men in their 20’s and 30’s aren’t immune.
Here are 2 tips to kick your testosterone up:
Natural Peanut Butter: Grow some nuts! No not literally, Natural peanut butter is a staple food source when you want to gain muscle mass. It’s a great source of ‘clean’ calories and even has some protein to fuel your workouts and pack on size. Most of the fats you’ll find in peanut butter are monounsaturated fats, the same fats in olive oil that people refer to as “clean fats.” Peanut butter is an excellent source of vitamin E, folate, magnesium and resveratrol – which have all been associated with promoting heart health.
Peanut butter is high in calories, but this by no means makes it unhealthy. I wouldn’t recommend downing spoonfuls of peanut butter if your goal is to lose 10 pounds, but for those trying to gain a little muscle mass, peanut butter is an excellent way to fuel your body with the energy it needs. Peanut butter is also cheap when compared to alternate methods of “fueling” a workout, such as pricey energy bars or protein smoothies. Eating peanut butter has been associated with increasing your natural testosterone production. The best time seems to be as at bedtime.
ZMA: Groups of athletes, who bang out 18 workouts a month or more, often show deficiencies of zinc and magnesium. Reports vary but many athletes, report better quality of sleep more restful sleep and therefore better recovery with ZMA usage. They also report increases in morning sex drive. It takes about six weeks to see the effects but chances are by including ZMA you’ll see improved performance in the gym.
