How Do Actors Increase Their Testosterone Levels?
Testosterone is the most common male hormone in men. It is secreted mainly by the gonads (the testicles of men, and, to a lesser extent, the ovaries of women). A man’s testosterone levels are, on average, seven to eight times higher than a woman’s.
During a man’s puberty, testosterone stimulates the development of the genital organs, hairiness, voice change, causes the appearance of sexual desire, etc.
Testosterone continues to play a key role throughout a man’s life: it especially contributes to the proper functioning of libido, erection, spermatogenesis (sperm maturation) and mental well-being. Anabolic, it increases protein synthesis in cells and contributes to muscle repair after exertion. Thus, this androgenic hormone stimulates the increase in muscle mass. Testosterone also plays a role in bone health.
How to maintain a high testosterone level on a daily basis?
Having a healthy lifestyle and filler injection will help you maintain a good testosterone level:
Get enough sleep, since the male hormone is produced mainly during sleep. Sleeping 8 nights in a row for 5 hours can decrease testosterone production by 15%.
Avoid being overweight. Think of fat tissue producing an enzyme, aromatase, which converts testosterone to estradiol, an estrogen (female hormone). In addition, too high a level of estrogen causes a decrease in testosterone production. Therefore, eat less fatty and sugary foods – since sugar is partly converted into fat, and engage in regular physical activity. However, do not opt for too rapid weight loss and avoid overtraining.
Reduce your stress: This releases a hormone called cortisol, which reduces libido and motivation, and is linked to low testosterone. Learn to relax and be less nervous, for example through breathing exercises and meditation.
Opt for a diet rich in micronutrients: eggs, fruit, cruciferous and other vegetables, fish…
Also avoid anabolic steroids (unless prescribed by a doctor), illegal in many countries and with side effects.
And do not consume too much alcohol, which disturbs the hormonal secretion. Drinking more than 6 glasses of alcohol, for example, lowers testosterone by 23%.
In any case, the level of testosterone in the blood inevitably decreases with age, approximately 1 to 2% per year, and this after the age of 30. Specific formulas are also designed to accompany men over 50 who suffer from testosterone aromatization.
Let’s now take a look at how to naturally increase your testosterone level to stay at the peak of your manhood, with the help of 5 natural and effective compounds.
Tribulus terrestris, a well-known testosterone booster
Tribulus terrestris, or Maltese Cross, is a plant with yellow flowers used for more than 3,000 years in traditional Ayurvedic, Chinese and Greek medicine, in cases of sexual dysfunction and infertility.
The plant contains in particular protodioscin, which stimulates the production of luteinizing hormone (LH). This reaches the testicles through the bloodstream and causes an increase in testosterone production and therefore its blood concentration in humans (1). Tribulus thus contributes to good hormonal and sexual health. In addition, it is used by many bodybuilders.
It is found in the form of Tribulus capsules or as a component of synergistic formulas dedicated to male vigor (such as Prosexual Formula Man, which combines Tribulus terrestris with vitamin B3, Muira puama and Avena sativa…)
Zinc, testosterone and spermatogenesis
The trace element zinc contributes to the maintenance of a normal level of testosterone in the blood (2). In effect it is an inhibitor of aromatase, the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. Note that zinc also contributes to sperm synthesis. It has been observed that a zinc deficiency causes a reduction in the number of spermatozoa.
The best food sources of zinc are: oysters, giblets and giblets, red meat, spinach, broccoli, whole wheat bread, etc. To increase your daily intake, opt for a zinc food supplement (such as Zinc Orotate, which contains the most bioavailable form of zinc). Note that a zinc treatment combines well with a magnesium treatment (eg OptiMag).
Ginseng root (Panax ginseng), or “sky root” is the best known of the Asian medicinal plants. It is famous for its general tonic effect: support for immunity, blood circulation, anti-fatigue and anti-stress effect…
