Natural Testosterone Boosters for Low Carbers

testosterone

It is trendy for biohackers to adopt a low carb diet choosing to fuel themselves on ketones rather than glucose. Testosterone levels can take a hit during long term carbohydrate restriction or fasting. I start to suspect something is up if I haven’t felt a need to shave in the last three days. The longevity forum has a good thread discussing natural ways to stabilize, recover and increase testosterone with linked studies.

Via longecity forum:

Increases T above baseline

  • ginger, 10g (+17.7%, unknown mechanism) [1]
  • intense exercise, squat (+15.1%) [2]
  • high saturated and monounsaturated fat (low fiber and polyunsaturated fat) [2b]
  • DHEA, 200mg (found in wild yams, precursor)
  • ginkgo [3]

Only normalizes deficiencies

  • tribulus [1]
  • zinc (oysters) [2]
    • deficiencies in other minerals may affect T levels
  • vitamin d2 (irradiated mushrooms)

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
