Some men are not able to naturally produce testosterone as they should. Testosterone is a sex hormone that plays an essential role in sperm production, sex drive, bone and muscle health, and hair growth. Testosterone levels begin to decline as you get older, as well as from illness or injury.  Try a healthy approach to boosting testosterone levels with a good diet.

Men should be mindful that cutting out refined carbohydrates, artificial sweeteners, and processed fast food is a great first step. Focus on eating whole “Real Food” including healthy fats, organic protein and high fiber.  Don’t forget the fruits and veggies. Choosing foods that are jammed packed with nutrients such as Vitamin D and zinc will also be vital as they are precursors for making testosterone.
