Onion juice triples testosterone levels

Think of a dirt-cheap vegetable you can buy at every greengrocers and supermarket. Put it in a juicer, give the juice to rats for three weeks, and watch their testosterone level rise by 314 percent. According to research done at Tabriz University in Iran, fresh onion juice raises testosterone levels as much as substances like nolvadex or clomid.

In Iran many men who have fertility problems can’t afford to buy medicine. That’s why Iranian researchers are looking for alternatives to medicines like NAC and selenium. Studies show that antioxidants can increase production of testosterone and sperm in the testes. Studies have also shown that onions contain strong antioxidants. So the researchers put two and two together and bought ordinary onions – Latin name Allium cepa – on the market. They peeled the onions and put them in a domestic juicer made by Tefal. The juice they got is what they used in their trials.

Their subjects were a group of 8-week-old male rats. Of these, 10 were given ordinary food for 20 days. [Control] Ten other rats got 0.5 g per kg bodyweight of onion juice, which was pumped into their stomachs using a tube. Another 10 rats were given the same treatment, but got 1 g/kg bodyweight/day.

The table below shows that after 20 days the onion juice had improved the sperm quality and increased the concentration of LH, FSH and testosterone in the rats’ blood.





Malondialdehyde is a mutagenic substance that is produced when free radicals damage the unsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes. The reduction in malondialdehyde concentrations that the researchers found indicates how the onion juice increases testosterone production: antioxidants in onion juice neutralise free radicals in the testes. The researchers suspect that the antioxidants in question are probably selenium compounds found in onions, and phenols such as quercetin and isorhamnetin [structural formulae shown above]. Isorhamnetin is also made in the body when enzymes convert quercetine with the help of S-adenosylmethionine.

The Iranian findings are not completely new. As long ago as 1967 an Egyptian researcher discovered that the testes of lab animals fed raw onion juice increase in size. At the moment there are quite a few animal studies which report that high doses of polyphenols like quercetin have a positive effect on the testes. But the effect of these is not as big as that of plain onion juice.

The first post states "1 g/kg bodyweight/day".

This means that you (being 178lbs) will need about 81 grams of juice ( http://users.tpg.com.au/doktormj/kilograms2pounds.htm )

Assuming that onion juice is similar to water, 81 grams of onion juice will be about 81 mL, which I believe is about 1/3 of a cup. Keep in mind that I'm making an assumption...

Sounds interesting, so if a medium sized onion is roughly 100g then one onion a day would be needed to replicate this for a human?

Does a juicer remove anything or does it literally just blend up the food product?

I wonder if the onion can just be eaten instead of juiced and drank?

Hmm...furthermore, does it need to be taken all at once or can it be spread throughout the day???

The write up says Allium Cepa. According to wiki, it's the "garden onion." It almost sounds like this is a generic name for cultivated onions...not sure 100% though.

What kind of juicer do you have? My mom wants one and I'm trying to get some good feedback before buying one ;)

I bought the Healthmaster Montel Williams model. It was expensive but it`ll juice just about ANYTHING. Whole apples, pears, etc. No peeling.

a couple pieces in the juicer mixed with carrot and celery juice make the drink strong.

I can only imagine how 1/3-1/2 cup would be like

I may actually consider pulling this stunt over the weekend, starting on Friday. In case the body start emitting a certain smell.

Probably grate it and squeeze the onions bits dry.

no not the whole 1/3 just maybe 1/8 th onion. I have been doing this a while mixed with celery and green peppers

do not know if I want to handle the 1/3 onion. might not be that bad.
who is first to try it?

it would probably take a couple onions to get 1/3 cup

from wikipedia

In ancient Greece, athletes ate large quantities of onion because it was believed that it would lighten the balance of blood. Roman gladiators were rubbed down with onion to firm up their muscles. In the Middle Ages, onions were such an important food that people would pay their rent with onions, and even give them as gifts.[8] Doctors were known to prescribe onions to facilitate bowel movements and erection, and also to relieve headaches, coughs, snake bite and hair loss.

In India some sects do not eat onion due to its alleged aphrodisiac properties.[12]

interesting...

its a pity they didn't also measure SHBG, prostate size and body composition changes.

Exactly! That was my thought. Just chop up an onion and put it in most of your meals. I do that with turkey burger or deerburger just for flavor. I might start putting it in everthing now:)

I would guess they are standard yellow onions. White onions are kind of an American variety so I doubt they'd be in Iran. Because you would likely hear;

"Death to American onions!"

lol

Think I might also, you can put it in a food processor and use it as a garnish, mix it in with your tuna etc... there would be no problem using up a couple onions a day... sure beats making juice out of it. This would be great on a cut as you are limited to how many ways you have of flavoring your food!!

Exactly!! I have actually been eating at least 1 medium onion a day sometimes 2. I simply dice it up the night before and eat a small portion raw with every meal. Sometimes I crave even more and simply just bite into one. It sure has been an acquired taste though. As I child I could never stomach them for anything, but now I crave them and thats why I incorporated them into my diet. I figure if my body truley craves something, and I'm not talking about a mental craving but a true bodily craving then there must be a reason for it, something my body needs is contained within.
I have been eating them like this for about 4 months now and I must say that my energy levels have gone up, I feel detoxed, mental clarity has risen, and my ejac load has drastically increased(sorry if that is too much info) among other things.

Even though I'd like to dive into this onion eating adventure, the cons, being bad breath/smelling like **** are almost enough to completely deter me... Thus, I will be waiting for the next supplement company to produce 'odorless onion technology,' hah.

I'm guessing that a bunch of chlorophyllin will help in alleviating the onion-sweat problem. Maybe some pineapple and orange juice to dilute the flavor and to make your semen less offensive to your S.O. If I can find a super-cheap juicer, I may give this a go.

Or maybe you should drink a bit extra on date nights - if she sticks around, it's meant to be. And the extra test could be of good use if the evening goes well. ;)
