Are testosterone supplements truly effective? Sadly no. Many guys think they can just pop a few “natural enhancers” and their T levels will magically increase. If you’re eating garbage, not exercising, and not getting enough sleep, no amount of testosterone supplements is going to help your testosterone levels reach optimal levels.
No. Supplement manufacturers, and distributors, have no FDA testing or approval requirements. Since there is no testing, there is not the same type of oversight on medications that go through rigorous testing programs before it can be released to the public.
These rigorous testing programs also limit what pharmaceutical companies can and cannot say when marketing their products which oversight supplement companies do not have to worry about. When Hormone Therapeutics prescribes Testosterone and other hormones these products are created and tested in sterile laboratories and marketing regulations are very specific on what one can and cannot say as far as the efficacy of the product. A Supplement firm is only responsible for ensuring, ON THEIR OWN, that:
Essentially, they are allowed to police themselves and only under scrutiny if someone complains.
Vitamin D3 is actually a hormone and not a vitamin. Vitamin D3 provides a whole host of health benefits. We naturally make vitamin D from the sun, but only when we are outside. Studies are showing we getting sub deprived as Westerners spend more time inside. Sunscreen also inhibits vitamin D3 production which can hinder testosterone production. Studies have shown that men who take Vitamin D3 supplements see a boost in testosterone levels.
Fish oil lower SHBG and increase LH (Luteinizing Hormone) production. LH is the key precursor hormone triggering the gonads to produce testosterone. It’s a good fat and great for the heart.
Whey protein in an unsweet coconut milk shake with a scoop of creatine is a good pre workout to fuel muscles and help them rebuild afterwards.
There are many internet ads touting Vitamin C’s benefits for “how to increase testosterone”. Most of us get enough Vitamin C from our diets and the only studies we found that showed Vitamin C increasing testosterone levels was in diabetic mice. So, if you are a diabetic mouse, up your Vitamin C.
