Be careful with fish consumption
Mercury concentrates up the food chain
Depends on where it's sourced from
Aka no Delaware River catfish
Yup. Tuna can be high in mercury. The larger the fish, generally the higher the mercury.
Omega suppliments are also a good idea, and capsules are cheap.
Hot peppers also raise testosterone
Well that explains my love of garlic
And hot peppers
But I just can't back broccoli
I've done extensive research in redpilled nutrition/how to raise T levels as a backdrop to my hobby as an amateur chef.
I might do a write up tomorrow of a comprehensive list of what raises T levels, and what harms them.
I've had the best results simply lifting heavy and at most supplementing with creatine. Bust your ass in the gym fuck all these bs hacks
Hot peppers, onions and fish oil along wiht brok and other veggies are great for you. Anybody that claims there is even a transient effect on your test levels with food is selling you bullshit. And if they are not, just ask for the labs. Test is some of the cheapest, easiest, insant labs you can get.
Nutrition isn't BS. It's critical
who said nutrition is bs?
Eat healthy but I'm just talking over thinking I never said nutrition was bs
Nutrition is crucial to manage your insulin, ldl, hdl, mood, bone density etc. It will not change your test level. But you don't need to argue. Just go get tested before and after and post your results. Simple. If you don't have that, you don't know.
Results speak for themselves
It's still true that different foods have different effects on you physically, and there is great benefit to fine-tuning a diet
and obviously nutrition and fitness go hand in hand. Everyone here should be working out
I don't think there is a single person here that is arguing that pop tarts and soda is good nutrition. That is not the topic of conversation. The topic was nonsense bro science about test levels being affected by food. If you trully have an enoctrine problem, go get tested and seek treatment.
I guess I was just speaking in regards to beginners. If you're more advanced by all means get tested and fine tune your nutrition. I just personally had that issue starting out and being bogged down by an overabundance of info that's all
Certain foods do raise T levels, just as soy lowers T levels.
https://www.healthline.com/health/low-testosterone/boosting-food It isn't bro-science. It's hard science.
Here is the thing to keep in mind, and I really every man here thinks this through. Your health is the most important thing you have. Testostorone production in your body like insulin production or adrenal function or kidney function has an optimal range for your body that might or might not be the range that your body is producing such hormone. Some endoctrine systems are very responsive to outside influence, i.e. prolonged high glucose diet can bring about insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. If you have low testostorone, aka hypogonadism you are at higher risk of bone fractures, heart disease, depression. You need to get that looked at and remedied. If your test level is normal, the you can follow bro science.
Lol, hard science. How many percentage points does egg yolk raise test levels in men with primary or seconday hypogonadism? I don't see an answer in there.

There you go.
Here is another one for you. Holding guns vs babies.
Why don't you run labcorp, eat a shit ton of eggs and then run the test again?
Do you know how you solve VitD deficiency today if you ar enot a farm worker. Yes pills. Not rubbing onion juice on your temples.
@Deleted User what I read is you need zinc and vitamin d. Why not just supplement?
Don't suplement if you are not deficient. WHy would you do that?
The onion shit is a meme tbh. And yeah supplements for both these things are helpful. Although there is less bioavailability in vitamins as opposed to getting it naturally from food.
During the winter you will be. But like caco said the vitamins are less bioavailabile
