**WORLD'S BEST FOODS FOR TESTOSTERONE PT II** by @joelofitness -
BANANAS: Contain bromelain, an enzyme that helps your body recover after a workout and also acts as a safeguard for your testosterone levels. Check out this study from the University of Tasmania. 15 elite cyclists were used as test subjects. The subjects raced in a competitive cycle race for 6 consecutive days. Researchers divided the participants into two groups.
Group 1) 7 cyclists who received 1,000 mg’s of daily bromelain. Group 2) 8 cyclists who received a similar-looking placebo.
On days 1,3, and 6 over the cycling days, researchers took blood samples and examined the samples for various exercise markers, including testosterone.
As expected, the high amount of endurance exercise significantly lowered blood testosterone levels in the placebo group. However, the group getting 1,000 mg’s of bromelain supplementation had stable levels of testosterone throughout the 6 days of cycle racing.
GRAPES: The skins of red grapes contain resveratol, a proven aromatase inhibitor. Aromatase is an enzyme that converts testosterone and other androgens into estrogen. Consuming grapes and other sources of resveratol like the ones we’ve previously mentioned can help support healthy testosterone levels.
LEMON, LIME, & OTHER CITRUS FRUITS: Citrus fruit lowers the stress hormone cortisol because it’s jam-packed with antioxidants. This according to a recent study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It also contains vitamin A, which is an essential vitamin for testosterone production.
Citrus fruits also helps lower estrogen levels, thus promoting healthy male hormones.
Vitamin C also reduces stress and inflammation.
