Eating to Increase Testosterone

Testosterone is the male sex hormone and, as such, it is often attributed to manliness. Unfortunately, not all men have the high levels of testosterone they desire. Low levels of testosterone mean a low sex drive, low energy levels and a greater risk for several diseases.

The good news is that those that suffer from low levels of testosterone can actually do something about it. Often times, it’s as simple as making a change in your diet. This doesn’t mean you have to completely overhaul your eating habits, but it does mean making an effort to eat certain things.

Let’s take a look at some of the foods that cause an increase in testosterone.


This delicious fatty-food goes great on sandwiches and salads. Avocado lovers will be happy to know that the food increases your testosterone levels as well enhance your favorite dishes. It also lowers you LDL levels, which are known as bad cholesterol. As LDL deceases, circulation improves. This will help rectify erectile dysfunction too. Homemade guacamole is a great way to enjoy this healthy snack.


Sweet and tangy grapes will also have a positive effect on your testosterone levels. Try eating a handful every day. Add them to a fruit salad if you find yourself getting bored. The resveratrol found in grape skins will make for healthier sperm. While red wine has decent levels of resveratrol, the alcohol prevents it from having a positive impact on your testosterone levels. If you just like to drink it for taste, however, non-alcoholic red wine has been shown to increase testosterone.


Fish in general is good for testosterone. Your body needs fats to produce all hormones, and it’s best to eat healthy fats, such as those found in fish. Tuna, however, has the benefit of high levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D has a tremendous ability to raise testosterone levels and is also linked to a healthy sex drive. Fresh tuna is great, but even canned tuna will work well. Tuna sandwiches for lunch are a great option.


Often billed as a miracle fruit, pomegranate is great for increasing the testosterone in your body. This fruit is packed with antioxidants and has been shown to reduce the risk of impotence. Eat the seeds or drink the juice to enjoy the benefits of this fantastic fruit.


Red meat is going to have a very positive effect on your testosterone levels. It’s high in saturated fats, which are beginning to shed the bad rap they’ve had for so long. The truth is that if you live an active lifestyle (read: lift weights) saturated fats will be used to create more testosterone.

Eat Manly Food

It’s no secret that testosterone is responsible for many manly traits. It’s also necessary for men to live a healthy life. That’s why it’s so concerning when individuals suffer from low testosterone levels. If you are one of those people, it’s time to do something about it.

Luckily, it doesn’t require an insane amount of effort. A few simple changes to your diet might be all you need.  like eating testosterone-producing foods and exercising more.
