Foods That May Help Boost Testosterone in Men

A hormone called testosterone plays a vital role in developing male reproductive organs, muscle mass, and bone density. It also regulates other hormones. As men grow older, testosterone levels can decline. Sometimes this change may be due to the natural aging process, but often it’s the result of lifestyle changes or illness. When testosterone levels are low, symptoms may include decreased sex drive, difficulty concentrating on work tasks, erectile dysfunction, difficulty with emotional ups and downs, or lack of energy.

Your testosterone levels are what makes you act like the man you are. When these levels drop, it can lead to difficulty with erections and more time spent feeling tired. If you want to keep your testosterone levels high and more active, try adding some natural aphrodisiac foods to your diet today.


Flaxseed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which are phytochemicals that help reduce cortisol levels in your body. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can lower testosterone levels, so reducing cortisol levels in your body will help increase your testosterone production.


Soybeans are rich in protein and contain the isoflavones genistein and daidzein, which have been shown to increase testosterone levels by inhibiting the estrogen receptors in your body.

Pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, which has been shown to increase testosterone levels. Zinc deficiency can lead to low testosterone levels, so adding pumpkin seeds into your diet is a good idea if you want to ensure that you’re getting enough zinc.


Spinach is an excellent source of magnesium, which helps regulate your body’s production of testosterone and sperm. Just one cup provides about 50 percent of the recommended daily allowance for magnesium.

Wheat germ

Wheat germ contains high amounts of selenium, an essential ingredient for the body’s testosterone production. Just one cup will provide you with 63 percent of the recommended daily allowance for selenium.


Oysters are considered an excellent source of zinc, an essential mineral that can help increase testosterone levels in men. Zinc is found in oysters, beef, and lamb meat. Just three ounces of oysters provide about 60 percent of the recommended daily allowance for zinc.


Boost your confidence, master your sexuality, and find your purpose.

So you can reignite the passion in your relationship or attract your perfect woman.


Garlic is rich in allicin, which stimulates the production of free testosterone in your body. It also lowers sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) levels in men. SHBG is known to bind testosterone and therefore reduce its levels in the body.


Watermelon is rich in citrulline, which helps dilate blood vessels, increase blood flow, and lower blood pressure. Increased blood flow means more nutrients are transported to the muscles, resulting in more strength and stamina.

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids like catechins, epicatechins, and procyanidins that increase blood flow to the penis. They also help dilate blood vessels, allowing more blood to reach the tissues of the penis to give it a boost. So, get indulging!


Eggs are a great source of protein, and protein is essential for increasing testosterone levels. In addition to being high in protein, eggs also contain vitamin D, which plays a vital role in regulating your body’s hormone levels.
