What are Testosterone Boosters

Testosterone is the male sex hormone found in all men in the testicles, but it is also an important hormone for women and is produced in the ovaries alongside oestrogen. Women have a small amount produced, whilst for men testosterone controls things like moods, sex drive and muscle growth.

As men and women get older the levels of each hormone in the body reduce, women find that their testosterone levels can increase giving them more facial hair and the imbalance can be treated using HRT. In men the reduction in testosterone can be treated using injections, changes in diet and supplements or boosters.

The best testosterone boosters will either increase the production of testosterone or help to reduce the amount of it that is converted into oestrogen. There have been multiple studies on the effects of these boosters, some studies have been conducted specifically to see the effects and benefits relating to the production of testosterone and some studies have noted the increase in testosterone levels as part of a wider study into the effect of taking a booster for other things such as cancer treatments.

The human body is a complex and unique thing, what works for one may not work for another so some of these boosters may work for you and some may not. All can be found naturally in food or supplements, even in the skin when you go out into the sun, but the levels required to boost testosterone production might need you to move to a sunnier location or to eat a boat load of broccoli and let’s face it, no-one really wants that (or the aftermath).

Zinc is one of the most common ingredients in testosterone boosters. Why? Because some people believe that, and there are studies to back up that, having additional Zinc in a supplement has been shown to increase testosterone levels significantly and that restricting zinc intake has lowered testosterone levels. As your zinc intake goes up or down, so do your testosterone level. Allegedly.
