Ways to Increase Natural testosterone
Take vitamin D to lose fat and boost hormone levels that regulate metabolism. Getting enough vitamin D is necessary for both men and women, but for slightly different reasons.
For men, vitamin D enables optimal testosterone levels for health and optimal leanness. For example, a new study that tracked 2,069 older men over three years found that men with a higher vitamin D status had higher free testosterone. Men who were deficient in vitamin D and testosterone had a 111 percent increase in all-cause mortality over the course of the study.
Scientists think there are at least two reasons for vitamin D’s role in regulating testosterone. First, vitamin D inhibits the process of aromatization in which testosterone is changed into estrogen. Second, vitamin D enhances the sensitivity of receptors on the cells in the androgen glands that release testosterone.
Supplementing with vitamin D works for men who need to raise testosterone: A groundbreaking study showed that giving men with low testosterone a supplement of 3,332 IUs of vitamin D daily for a year resulted in an impressive 20 percent increase in free testosterone.
This study didn’t measure body composition, however, a number of association studies show that men with adequate vitamin D above 30 ng/ml have higher testosterone, less body fat, and greater lean muscle mass.
For women, getting enough vitamin D ensures optimal hormone levels for body composition as well. Vitamin D plays an anti-inflammatory role, supports thyroid function, and improves muscular and bone health in women, all of which influence leanness.
Women with higher blood levels of vitamin D have less body fat, and mothers with adequate vitamin D have leaner offspring because vitamin D affects genetic signaling pathways linked to metabolism in the developing fetus.
As you probably know, the body makes vitamin D in response to sunlight. What most people don’t know is that the month of May is when people tend to experience their lowest vitamin D levels all year if they do not supplement. A daily dose of 2,000 to 5,000 IUs depending on individual factors or a single weekly large dose of up to 35,000 IUs has been effective to maintaining vitamin D above the optimal 40 ng/ml range.
IU stands for international units.
The Second and more Commonly known (old school way) to increase testosterone naturally is with D-Aspartic Acid.
recent and new studies have shown that D-Aspartic acid works better than we all thought.
D-aspartic acid is one of two forms of the amino acid aspartic acid. The other form is L-aspartate.
The benefits of D-AA are specific to it, and do not extend to aspartic acid or L-aspartate.
D-AA can be used as a testosterone booster for infertile men, and by athletes as a temporary booster. Elevated testosterone levels only last a week to a week and a half in healthy men, with testosterone returning to normal afterward.
D-AA works in the central brain region to cause a release of hormones, such as luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and growth hormone. It may also build up in the testicles, where it alleviates a rate-limiting step of Testosteronesynthesis, which leads to a minor testosterone increase.
Further research is needed on D-AA, as most studies attempt to assess D-AA’s role in the body under normal conditions, and not in the frame of supplementation.
As a result of the above you need to be using D-Apartic acid for at least 8 to 12 weeks. It's relatively safe enough to use continually with no real negative side affects. It's also a great supplement to use during an off Cycle (PCT). D-Aspartic acid will also help with Building mass keeping you lean and also converting protein in the body (protein synthesis). So you're going to get better value from your protein by taking it. You can also use it safely alongside other products.
