I have seen so many posts online claiming, “eat these foods to boost testosterone!”
Or “have these 8 foods to boost testosterone”
And while these posts have some truth to them.
They can be very exaggerated.
So, in the cases of them being exaggerated is towards younger males.
Every guy is always looking to get an edge when going to the gym and wanting to build muscle
So, when they see these headlines,
They are going to think of eating a bunch of pineapples, honey, and grapes,
Is going to blast up their testosterone.
The misconception is that they will build up their testosterone like someone who is taking prescribed test.
And they are far from the same thing.
Eating healthy and taking fruits will only raise your testosterone to a certain point
It will raise it respectively to what your genetic limit is and what your age is.
So, it's not going to be the same thing as someone being prescribed testosterone from a doctor.
It also won't cause you to build any more muscle than you would if you were already eating healthy.
The best thing you can do is take your multi-vitamins,
Have zinc and magnesium supplements,
And eat healthy while maintaining your calories and protein levels.
If you’re doing that then you're fine.
But these some of the videos or ads I have found is painting it as nonsense,
Saying you’ll be able to boost your testosterone so high you’ll pack on muscle faster.
Sorry, but eating a fruit shake with extra honey in it won’t do that for you.
There will be nothing special that will come out of that.
Other than being a healthy alternative, you are not going to magically get better muscle gains.
And your testosterone won’t shoot through the roof.
The other point is that testosterone itself is prescribed for old males when they have low test scores.
Now everyone knows it helps to promote lean muscle tissue growth,
And is a contributing factor to muscle growth.
But if you are younger and are taking it could potentially have consequences to your health if not monitored.
In my opinion, people should work out naturally until they have hit their natural genetic limit.
And doing that can take upwards of 15 years.
It's just that people, especially the younger generation these days are too impatient.
Everyone’s ego swells up and they want to be the most muscular or shredded.
And once the results come in, they tend to want to keep doing it.
Unless of a genetic deficiency of some sort, your test levels are going to be fine.
Especially if you already eat healthily and work out.
If for some reason you go and take a medical report and find they are on the lower side.
Then having some listed fruits that can help promote testosterone will get them back up to normal levels.
But they won’t go past what limit you have unless you start taking growth hormones or test.
To which I’ll just repeat what I said above, do it naturally first until you get older.
Until you get to an age where your body just might need assistance.
But here’s the kicker.
Not that I have taken it myself, but just from knowing how it works,
And knowing people who have been on it,
And understanding how the body produces muscle growth from doing this for 15 years,
Even if you take any performance-enhancing drug of any sort,
It will still take you some time to develop muscle.
Even with the increase in growth,
People always underestimate how much that can grow and get,
Because they tend to think it's like taking a magical pill that will cause growth easier for you.
You still need to work hard and put in the time of years to get the body you want.
You can’t just eat fruit to boost testosterone
Put in the time, learn the mechanics of bodybuilding, and apply it in days, months, and years.
And in time you’ll see the results start to come in.
