Best vegetables for Testosterone
« on: June 26, 2012, 05:44:33 pm »
I hate vegetables- especially green ones. blah.
but I know I need to really start adding these to my diet. As I was drinking my daily Beetroot/Pomengranate/Banana/strawberry smoothie I had a thought.. What about a green smoothie? I dated a girl who used t make them and they really tasty.
So I'm embarking on creating a perfect green smoothie.
What vegetables would be best for T and men in general?
Any ideas?

Well, vegetables, as far as I know, don't give you a direct boost in testosterone.  However, they do indirectly, because nutritional deficiencies and a heavy oxidative load can definitely lower testosterone.  So there's nothing out there like, "Eat an eggplant and boost your T."  But many nutrients (Vitamin A, Vitamin C) play a role in testosterone and the antioxidants can help protect all your tissues from the "brain to the balls" so to speak.

And, on a side note, don't forget that the high-nitrate vegetables (beets, celery, spinach, etc.) will likely give you a nice little boost in nitric oxide.  If this helps give you a little extra prowess in the bedroom, it may increase your testosterone just from the extra intercouse.

By the way, I love my blender - not more than the wife and kids though - and have a smoothie every day:  I think it really makes a difference.  Almost everything I throw in there is organic and I can do the whole thing start to finish including cleanup in fifteen minutes and the benes are huge.  So keep up the good work!
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.

What about DIM PEAK T? It's made from all the green vegetables I hate and it's supposed to balance your E which causes you to produce more  T in your body.

DIM and I3C are impressive phytochemicals of course and they can do nothing but help.  However, I think it's a stretch to say that you're going to get a T boost from the doses found in food.  But believe me:  I can't say enough good things about the cruciferous veges of course...
