Cantalope and Testosterone

http://www.livestrong.com/article/317586-what-effect-does-cantaloupe-have-on-your-testosterone-level/

What do you guys think?   My wife had me try frozen cut up cantalope in my smoothie this morning and its fantastic.   Frozen cantalope by itself is like eating icecream.  Its important to freeze it as soon as you cube it, throw it in a ziplock and in the freezer.  Yum!
7/6/12   - T Levels Total 154/ Free 4.5; PSA 1.7
Life Sucked!  Focused on losing weight and lifestyle changes.
1/31/13  - 292/5.4; C 5.0; SHBG 17.8
3/25/13  - 329/7.4; C 11.8, E2 23; PSA <0.5
Started TRT
7/5/13 - T Cyp - 100mg biweekly IM
7/26/13 Midpt - 228/5.4 - move to 100mg/wk
8/29/13 - Trough - 219/39.5; Cort 11.3
8/30/13 - Peak - >1500/>52; E2 101; PSA 1.8
 - Proved IM injections were cleared too quickly.   Low SHBG is often a clearance issue!
- Move to subQ 30mg EOD solved all issues except fatigue.  T levels consistently 500-600 E2 20-40
Dec-13 - Switched to Clomid 50mg 2x/wk.  finally settled on 12.5mg EOD
Jan-14 - Stopped Clomid - Clomid Sucks!
Went back 30mg EOD SubQ + Berberine 500mg 2X/day which finally cured fatigue issues.    SHBG in the 20-22 range and as expected as SHBG has increased T clearance has decreased.  T levels are now consistently in the 700-900 range with E2 in the 20-30 range.  BF 7-10%  Family Life Great, Work Great!  Mind/Body Great!!  You can do it to!

I think that you might as well try to smoke the peel.  Yes, Vitamin A is important for testosterone production, but every bodybuilder on planet earth would be taking it and betacarotene if it made a difference. 

And I just looked it up and see no references to cantalope and testosterone.  If you look at the author's links at the bottom, they are heavy market hype for a supplement he's selling.
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

I just found this link, I'm sure there's a webpage for everything to boost T, but it also lists watermelon.  http://www.organicauthority.com/mojo-foods/11-foods-that-get-your-sex-drive-going-naturally.html 
Being from the south we have an abundance of watermelon.  We buy pre-sliced fruit bowls usually with watermelon and cantelope all the time.  Recently my wife sent a text saying what we needed to do after work.  I ran home, starving, ate a bunch of melon, showered, shaved, had a great time, excellent performance.  I don't know if it was the watermelon or what, but it held off my hunger for an hour or so.
Told my doc about excessive sweating, T check revealed 199, started injections in March 2013, I'm loving it.
Injecting 1ml of Cypionate every 12 days, 9/18/13 Peak T level is 1030!

Watermelon can definitely boost nitric oxide by supplying some citrulline.  In fact, I cover the amount of citrulline that you can get in watermelon here:

I believe they first purified citrulline from watermelon.   Hey even if cantaloupe doesn't raise t levels, its still good in a smoothie or just frozen like a Popsicle.  And a lot healthier than a real one.

Preach it!
