So the methods that I will discuss to increase masculinity are as follows:
and Unnatural methods.
The average young 20 year old man of today possess testosterone levels of 679ng/dl, back in the 1920s the average 20 year old man, possessed testosterone levels of 911ng/dl.
Such levels back then are considered top 7-8% today which is not optimal at all.
Today gentleman, I'm going to help you and tell you how to improve your natural testosterone production.
Forget what modern, out of shape doctors say on the matter. After all, those same doctors consider 350ng/dl testosterone levels to be normal for young men of today.
The most powerful way to increase testosterone production is with the help from the sun. Humans can only absorb vit. D and metabolise it trough direct sun exposure, all animal sources contain insignificant amounts of vit. D.
The average adult male needs about 20 000UI of vit. D daily in order to function optimally and to be free out of any disease.
Your body requires vit. D in order to produce testosterone.
In the male physiology, muscular development is linked to the production of the male hormone, testosterone.
The old Greek practice of exercising nude on a warm sandy beach was used to develop a healthy muscular body. When sunlight falls on any part of the male body, testosterone production increases substantially, but when it strikes the male genitals directly, secretion of the hormone is greatest.
Sunlight exposure has a dramatic impact on testosterone production in males, as plasma testosterone levels decline from November through April, and then rise steadily increase through the spring and summer until they peak in October. This directly impacts reproductive rates, and accordingly, the month of June has the highest rate of conception. Those living in lower latitudes with generally lower precipitation rates have a year-round advantage in testosterone levels and the corresponding increase in sperm production. Indeed, the Caucasian movement from Europe into lower latitudes was followed by higher birth rates, which were partly due to the sunlight-induced testosterone levels. A study at Boston State Hospital proved that ultraviolet light increases the level of testosterone by 120% when the chest or back is exposed to sunlight. The hormone, however, increases by a whopping 200% when genital skin is exposed to the sun. Regular sunbathing increases the strength and size of all muscle groups in the male physique. The combination of sun and exercise is, therefore, ideal to develop a strong and healthy body with optimal reproductive abilities. There are more than 40 million men in the U.S. suffering from low levels of testosterone. But the vast majority of them don’t even know it.
As the tremendous popularity of Viagra suggests, many of these men are experiencing symptoms of male sexual dysfunction. Others find themselves fighting more subtle battles against obesity, fatigue, depression and insomnia-common symptoms of low testosterone that most doctors overlook or attribute to the natural process of aging or stress. Testosterone levels reach a peak during a man’s early twenties. Aging and lifestyle factors such as stress, improper diet, physical inactivity, smoking, drinking and the use of prescription medications can significantly reduce these levels.Standard laboratory tests have failed to pinpoint the problem. While medical science has determined that while a man’s total (protein-bound) testosterone levels remain relatively stable over time, his bio-available (free) levels gradually decline at an alarming rate of 2% each year beginning at age thirty. This means that a man in his sixties is functioning with only about 40% of the testosterone he had in his twenties. However, when standard laboratory tests are performed, most men typically have only their total levels of testosterone evaluated. Their more important bio-available levels go unchecked. To make matters worse, most physicians require a diagnosis of hypogonadism (a medical term used to classify total testosterone levels that fall below a specified laboratory limit) prior to prescribing any testosterone replacement medication. As a result, millions of American men who are suffering from symptoms of low testosterone are walking around undiagnosed and untreated.
Zinc is needed for testosterone production too. Zinc deficiency causes low testosterone, infants who were deficient in zinc developed hypogonadism later in life.
How to increase Zinc:
Synthetic zinc cannot be absorbed by the body and it's a waste of money. One can increase their zinc levels only by correcting their lifestyle habits and eating foods rich in zinc.
Oysters contain more zinc per serving than any other food.
Avoid eating legumes, they inhibit the absorbtion of zinc in the blood.
Magnesium is also needed for testosterone production. Again taking magnisium supplements in a form of pills, etc are useless. (I've tried them all in the last 5 years, they don't work)
How to increase Magnesium:
Leafy greens in general
And finally your body needs cholesterol to produce testosterone. There's a big misconception that cholesterol is bad for you, but it depends on the type of cholesterol.
Another reason for the decline in testosterone levels in men of today is unadequate intake of the right cholesterol foods.
How to increase HDL cholesterol-
Raw, free range whole eggs
Extra virgin olive oil (2-3 table spoons daily)
Coconut oil (1 table spoon daily).
On a side note, back in the silver era of bodybuilding 50s-60s, Vince Gironda a pioneer of bodybuilding was proponent of the "36 eggs a day" diet. He claimed that eating 3 dozen eggs daily is the equivalent of dianabol cycle.
Video on the topic here:
Keep in mind those silver era bodybuilders were natural, they for sure knew a thing or even more about increasing testosterone and muscle potential.
Here I will list shortly all the foods, beverages and habits that lower testosterone (without detailed explanation, because I already gave it out in previous posts, in short so the shortattentionspancels would understand):
Food from plastic box, container
Heavily processed foods
Beer (beer contains phytoestrogens)
Any type of alcohol (as many of you may already know, in my thread "Natural human diet and Root cause of disease" I've pointed out how anytime you indulge in high amounts of alcohol, your testicular function and with that testosterone production is supressed for the next 48 hours.) It takes a long time for the liver to brake down alcohol and detoxify the blood efficiently. That's why chronic drinkers are usually the same guys: Balding, high body fat %, etc.
Fruit juice from the supermarket
Any type of pharmaceutical drugs (Yes, popping xanax like candy in fact suppresses testosterone production).
Finasteride destroys 5-alpha reductase genes in the liver, muscles and testicles for zeroing sex drive, soft erection and muscle twitches, low ejaculation volume and semen production disorders.
Many guys over the world report lowered sex drive, erection power, seminal volume and Testosterone levels after taking Finasteride for just under 60 days.
Note: It may take up to 3 years before experiencing the first negative side effects of the devastating castrating effects of Finasteride!
It has been also reported that it may stimulate breast tissue in men, or at least change the fat distribution around the chest, but it always drops down testosterone by at least 30% in the long term usage.
Note: Finasteride causes such negative side effects long term because it decreases the testicular function, this lowering total testosterone, DHT and free testosterone levels.
Do not take Finasteride under any circumstances if you don't want your testicles to shrink. After that is very hard for your brain to signal the pituitary gland to balance your LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) ratios in order to bring back your testicular function to it's genetic blueprint.
Saw Palmeetto successfully prevents the DHT attack on the prostate and hair follicles, for hair restoration(sneak peek from my hairmaxing megathread coming this december).
If you want to save your hair as long as possible take saw palmeetto for at least 90 days/daily.
3.1:The power of Semen-
Semen contains human growth hormone, Insulin-like growth factor-I, alpha2-macroglobulin, testosterone, and other therapeutic and pharmaceutical proteins.
Pre-puberty overmasturbation may limit the body and penile growth. Vasectomy can significantly drop hGH and testosterone at about 30-60% and 25-53%, respectively, in seminal plasma.
The dangers of over-masturbation/over-ejaculation:
One of the primary reasons why men of today suffer from low testosterone levels is over-masturbation/over-ejaculation. Watching excessive pornography and pornography in general is the number 1 leading cause of masculinity in crysis of today.
Pornhub has been exposed as "trafficinghub" this year:
Chronic over-masturbation causes the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis in the neuroplastic state to chronically, excessively convert dopamine into norepinephrine for sympathetic nervous Fight and Flight responses to stimulation, and the resulted norepinephrine induces inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E2 for hyper-sensitization of your penis and prostate, leading to precum leakage and body pain. It also constricts your arteries for testicular castration.
High penile angle (downward crooked penis)
Temporal decrease in penile size by 1-2cm in lenght and 0.5-1cm in girth (over-masturbation/over-ejaculation induced penile shrincage)
Low ejaculation volume
Anxiety (one of the major symptoms)
Lower back pain (rare)
Shrinks the hair follicles
Dark circles (dark eye circles are a result of hyperactive tyrosinase for skin pigmentation around the eyes, in conjunction with arterial and venous constriction. Tyrosinase tunes L-Tyrosine and L-Dopa into melanin, a class of compounds responsible for skin pigmentation, instead of dopamine to drive the hypothalamus-pituitary-testicular axis. Damaged arteries and veins around the eye circles trap the melanin for semi-permanent skin darkness.
Some of the benefits of semen retention that I've experienced so far:
Improved sperm quallity
More energy and focus
Less anxiety and more decisive
Increased confidence and self control
Increased sexual stamina
Cures premature ejaculation.
Adequate exercise helps keep men feeling and looking fit by naturally stimulating testosterone release, and by preventing its breakdown. The duration, intensity and frequency of exercise all determine a man’s levels of testosterone. Be aware that testosterone levels increase most with short, periodic, more intense activity. They decrease with prolonged, frequent activity. Studies show testosterone levels increase with 45 to 60 minutes of exercise. After this time, however, testosterone levels begin to decline. Healthy levels of testosterone are necessary for muscle growth and repair. Since frequent, extended training doesn’t allow sufficient time for testosterone levels to recover, symptoms of over-training may develop. These symptoms include muscle soreness, diminished performance, fatigue, immune suppression and poor mood. Guidelines for Increasing Muscle and Maximizing the Effects of Exercise on Testosterone: Focus on low-volume, high-intensity strength training. Limit your exercise sessions to 60 minutes or less.Exercise at high-intensity, no more than 2 or 3 times weekly. Do all aerobic exercise (except for warm-ups and cool-downs) on separate days (or at least at separate times during the day) from strength training. For optimum fitness, change your exercise regimen every eight to twelve weeks.
Workout no more than 3 times weekly, as a natural you need recovery. Focus on progressive overload.
Lifting heavy weights for short repetitions (6 reps) increases testosterone production the most.
Go to bed early, no later than 22:00pm. When you go to bed after 23:00pm your body produces insignificant levels of the powerful hormone melatonin, which is involved in regulating sleep/wake cycles, cardiac rhythm, digestion, metabolism and cell recovery, also increases testosterone production. Your pituitary gland requires melatonin to function properly, by functioning correctly, FSH in the blood increases, which as a result stimulates the testicles thus way testosterone production increases.
It's not about injecting or taking testosterone boosters, but understanding the body mechanisms and optimizing the internal organ and gland function.
Practise the superman pose daily, by inhaling your lungs with oxygen to maximum capacity. It has been proven that standing tall, straight and brave increases testosterone levels.
The best example, 18 year old Steve Reeves:
And lastly don't let yourself down. You may want to limit cortisol release as much as possible.
There are few supplements which increase testosterone production and they are as follows:
Ashwagandha has been shown to increase testosterone levels by 15% in healthy young men, which is substantional amount.
Boron has been shown to increase free bioavalible testosterone in the blood
DIM is the one of only two natural supplements without negative side effects which actively battles estrogen by detoxifying it and eliminating it not just from the blood, but from the liver.
Chrysin is the modern best mega supplement for testosterone increase and estrogen control, it has the similar effects of DIM in handling estrogen, however Chrysin also is very anabolic and has been reported to increase total testosterone by whooping 30%. It's not like tribulus terrestris, tribulus doesn't work at all.
After taking Chrysin my pumps became stronger, fuller and I dropped 2-3% bodyfat instantly in 5 weeks. My strenght increased and I went from 1139ng/dl before sunbathing and taking chrysin back in early July, to 1326ng/dl naturally. Some of you may already saw my July test, I would post December update soon, altought Testosterone peaks in October.
Me, during my vacation this September:
Those four are the only ones that actually work.
During the winter months, alternatively you can use UVB lamp to maintain your vit. D levels.
