There are several healthy foods that may help increase testosterone levels by reducing estrogen levels such as: broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. Garlic may also increase testosterone as well, because it contains diallyl-disulfide, a compound that enhances a hormone which increases testosterone production. Sweet potatoes, and mushrooms may help increase testosterone levels. Men should also avoid some foods that are usually considered healthy such as grapefruit because it may stimulate an enzyme that produces estrogen, and counteracts the production of testosterone.
Laboratory studies with animals show hawthorn contains antioxidants which can destroy free radicals. Free radicals are found naturally in our bodies and as we age they increase, and can damage cell membranes, kill our body's cells, and tamper with our DNA. Antioxidants are responsible for destroying free radical s and are thought to reduce the health problems associated with aging. By adding on-cycle support to your stack, you can reduce the damages caused by free radicals in your body while supporting your liver and blood pressure.
