    best way to boost natural testosterone


    I am 23 and feel my testosterone levels aren't what they used to be mostly because of a decrease in energy and sex drive. would I be better off taking something like 6-oxo or a test booster like diesel test hardcore or something comparable?

    6-oxo. simple, proven, works. it will give you that little boost in libido and whatnot. any of the test boosters will do just about that just make sure ur getting one that people have used time and time again with proven results. also honestly bro next time ur at ur doctors get blood tests done and ask for a full hormone pannel, it will give u an idea of where your hormone levels are in relation to normal levels.

    Thanks for the info. I really hope its just stress, overtraining, or lack of sleep. Or a combination of all of the above. I don't have the increase in bodyfat or loss of muscle mass commonly associate with low testosterone. I've actually been increasing strength and stay pretty lean no matter what. its tough to accept the fact i may have a hormonal defficiency and hopefully its nothing permanent. i guess i'm just looking for something to give me that little bit of help and get me going again.

    get it checked by a doc before you start supplementing with OTC and self diagnosing...better to know what your dealing with, if anything at all.

    I would suggest an increase in Omega 3 fatty acids before anything.

    you could also start taking ZMA right before you sleep.. because the Zinc and Mag helps to boost your natural test. and gh during your sleep.... cause at your young age you should still have high levels of test...

    Take a look at your lifestyle diet and stress levels, I suggest a multi
    mineral/vitamin.

    agreed.

    your test levels are not dropping to the point where you can feel it at 23.

    go to the doctor, get some blood work done and see what your baselines are.

    take a look at your sleep & training schedule... take a look at your diet... take a look at your stress levels.

    Bloodwork would be the best place to start, atleast then you have a starting point.

    At what EFA dosage do you believe there would be a positive impact on test production? Are there any general rules of thumb?

    Try this natural diet for a month. Dont start expecting result in first couple of weeks however.

    6 whole Omega-3-6 eggs.(Not regular egg but Omega 6)
    2-3 cup of Broccoli.

    Eggs will boost your cholestrol level, omega3-6 rich eggs will ensure only the good cholestrol is upped. CHolestrol is vital in production of testosterone.

    Try this before you go the supplement route.

    I would go for 10g of fish oil in addition to higher intake of whole eggs, fatty fish, and leaner cuts of beef. These are not only high in fats, cholesterol, and protein, but they are also great sources of zinc, iron, magensium, etc.

    I'm seriously starting to believe that 3tbsp of coconut oil 2-3 hours prebed gives a decent testosterone boost.

    Oh I know its the whole saturated fat to cholesterol to pregnenelone to dhea etc chain, I just wouldn't think something so simple would provide a noticeable boost. And that the timing seems to make a difference as well, getting in so its loose in bloodstream for that REM cycle is better than getting it in earlier in the day.

    I personally notice a big difference when I take a 2 tbsp fish oil pre bed vs. without. I notice a difference in the morning wood. I might experiment with that coconut oil a bit since I just bought a bottle.

    I can't understand being 23 and not having a sex drive. I am 39 and just recently, the last year or so; I lose it for a couple of days or so every once in awhile. At 23 I do not think you need anything but food, rest and excercise.

    Do you take the coconut oil with your last meal of the night? For some reason I always thought consuming lots of fats at bedtime is detrimental. 3 tbsp seems like a lot.

    Detrimental is a harsh word.

    Good fats and protein before bed can do wonders for recovery just as long as you plan caloric intake properly fat gain is not a problem.

    definitely. plus I believe the fats cause a little extra either dopamine or serotonin release too as part of the satisfaction mechanisms, so make it easier to go to sleep

    Consume 30g casein protein, like cottage cheese along with
    10g of quick acting proteins, ounce of almonds with your coconut oil (not sure of the fat content per tbsp)...the fat will slow the digestion of your proteins feeding the beast all night...

    I have to give credit where credit is due. I changed my nighttime snack routine this past week and I noticed an immediate difference. I have been eating 3 eggs, a big tbsp of coconut oil, a couple spoonfuls of cottage cheese and a random veggie(green beans usually) about 2 hours before bed. Right before bed I take ZMA, a gut health and an ER Niacin. I haven't had morning wood like this since before a ****ty PH cycle last summer. It has really changed my world. Thanks a ton for the heads up. I suggest others try a similar protocol.

    OK - here goes. I am 48 years old. As a result of this thread I started taking 8 to 10 grams fish oil per day, and taking 3 tbs olive oil with my amino acids and the AM, and another 3 tbs olive olive oil at bedtime.

    Oh my gosh.

    I must not have been getting enough good fat in my diet and have probably been too concerned about minimizing calories to maintain my new - lower - weight (I lost 32 lbs rapidly when I found out that my serial adulteress ex-wife was having another affair).

    I will be making my own Udo's Blend, and buying Coconut Oil tonight.

    Jim and the twins feels as if they have been woken up from a coma. Now that I am dating, that is a really good thing.

    Hey,

    It never gets much play on this board, but there is a supplement called BetterMAN that does excellent things for libido. Combine that with some miura puama and catuaba, and you have a pretty incredible herbal libido regimen. I like to take 2 or 3 of the BetterMAN caps per day, and I take the miura puama and catuaba as herbal tinctures on "special occasions".

    I could quote my girlfriends' reactions, but that is just bragging. Suffice it to say that the stuff works. You'll have to buy this stuff online, and you will need at least two bottles of the BetterMAN to run a decent trial.

    Speaking of, I have been off of all this for a while. Hmmm

    p.s.

    Potential causes of your decreased sex drive:

    1. Overtraining! This is a major source of stress, and the body is trying to repair itself in response to it. The last thing it is concerned with is getting you laid when it is in such distress.

    2. Other stressors. These could be dietary, emotional, sleep-related ... anything that distracts or overburdens you.

    3. Winter weather. Animals tend to mate in spring. We are animals. If you notice a decrease in libido when it's cold out (as it still is here in NYC), it may indicate awareness of your body as opposed to "something wrong".

    4. Side effects of other supplements. Some of them can get in your game.

    23, huh? I had a period right after I graduated from college that was something of an identity crisis. I no longer had the type of living situation and circle of friends to which I had become accustomed.

    If that's what's up, I think it is counterproductive to look at it in terms of "something being wrong". Instead, look at changes in your living situation as important opportunities to make new friends and find good roommates / jobs, etc.

    I hope this helps.

    ^^^Agreed! Rodja knows his sh*t!

    To the OP...Definitely focus on getting a good intake of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. Some other helpful tips...limit your alcohol intake, get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night, and make sure you incorporate solid compound exercises into your training regimen and lift heavy (85% of your one rep max), and also do at least three sets of each exercise. These are some general good natural basic guidelines to help elevate your testosterone and to also maintain it without having to use any supplements.

    For supplements...I am pretty sure you are going to here many different views and opinions so if you want my two cents...pm me sometime. When it comes to using supplements to help with testosterone it is a purely subjective topic.

    Does the coconut oil work long term? Is it still working for you guys who are taking it? I took 30mL for a few days and my libido dropped.
