Older Men Raise Your Testosterone Naturally

I totally favor cycling most supplements - particularly ones that affect hormones - but I don’t subscribe to the one-size-fits-all suggestion of limiting zinc to 1 or 2 weeks.

It is true that in excess amounts zinc will be toxic, so if you’ve ever experienced nausea that you think might be attributable to zinc, it would be prudent to (a) avoid excessive doses when you do take it, (b) check the ingredient list on all multi-ingredient supps you take to make sure you are not getting “extra” zinc tucked in somewhere unexpected, and (c) limit the duration of your cycle.

That said, I think zinc deficiencies are fairly common among males who resistance train - and other athletes. Some time ago, I regularly used to take ZMA for periods well in excess of 2 weeks, and I never had an issue.

I remember reading that taste can be a crude indicator of zinc deficiency. Supposedly things containing zinc taste (e.g., Cold-eze) taste strong (and nastier) to folks with sufficient zinc in their systems. I’m not sure the basis of this observation, but I do know my wife would rather succumb to a cold than endure the taste of Cold-eze, whereas I could pop them like candy.

Anyway, I don’t want to recommend reckless conduct, but I think a 1-2 week limit on zinc is unduly restrictive for many.

Well Done! - I’ve done a lot of research myself on this - instead of the eggs, take pregnenolone asa supplement but in the mornings.. Also take a look at stinging nettle extract.. At the moment I’m not convinced that blocking DHT is a good thing however each to their own :)

The OP should get his blood levels worked up. At 32 you shouldn’t really notice a significant drop in your test levels.

I work two jobs about 60 hours a week. Monday through Friday I don’t get much sleep. I am lucky to get 6 some nights. This is why I’m feeling it. So what little T my body is producing Monday-Friday I am trying to keep from turning into Estrogen or DHT. And yes I’m using extreme caution with blocking DHT. I’m only take half of the recommend dose to block it. And I’m skipping every other day with it. I only want to shave a little DHT off not completely shut it down.

I work at a shipping company under very physical conditions. Think of your entire body sweating in 90+ degree heat for 4 hours straight lifting boxes up to 120lbs. Last Friday we had 3 people leave from heat exhaustion. All 3 almost fainted while loading in the trailers. And there is only 15 people on the night time staff. It may be difficult to comprehend for some just how hard I work. I use to be a laborer for a brick layer and I work harder in 4 hours at night then I ever did hauling bricks around.

So my body is losing Zinc and losing T through a long intense workout. If you wanna keep your T, short intense workouts is what you go for. A 2 hour session in the gym will lower T. I have been doing this for 5 years now with poor diet. I use to work a 6 day week, now only 5. So right now I know its low. And even if its not I feel so much better that I’m keeping my routine up.

So I do get 8-9 hours of sleep 3 nights a week. So on these nights is where I need to produce my T. Nothing I can do about my work in till I get my promotion. Which should be very soon, then I’ll be doing one job about 48.

And this is how I know this is working. My strength is up and my energy is up. Bottom line is its working.

I really do not trust doctors medicine very much. About 2 years ago I went to my doctor with constant lower back pain. She told me that I had a bad ligament and all she did was give me muscle relaxers and an anti inflammatory. She said “you work two jobs your back is gonna hurt”. I didn’t accept this info at!!

So I did some research and found that ligaments are made of collagen type 1 & 3 (mainly) with a small % as type 2. With the medicine she gave me doing nothing at all, I decided to buy some collagen supplements. So I bought NeoCell Collagen Type 1 & 3 and took it with vitamin C. And after 2 weeks my back pain was 95% better. And I mean I had a constant tight feeling in my back. Like someone was pinching me. Now why couldn’t my doctor suggest that? Because most don’t believe in any type of natural healing because they are in the drug companies back pocket. Most doctors are high paid drug dealers. And that is a fact. So I live now with hardly any back pain what so ever. A complete turn around. I take my collagen supplements every day.

As Meatbuilder said they don’t have him on a estrogen blocker. If you take steroids you better take an estrogen blocker. Meatbuilder you should watch for signs of high estrogen or ask about blocking it. I would just straight tell them, you want an estrogen blocker. Unless they think your estrogen is also low. Watch for puffy nipples. Because they are putting T into your body now. More T means there is more available to be turned into estrogen. Its that simple. But yes keep eating that broccoli it has DIM and indole-3-carbinol in it.

I just want to start at level one. I’ve read that some steroid users cause there body to lose the ability to produce its own testosterone. I want my body to go through the natural process of producing it. And eggs have a lot of good ammo acids and nutrients in them. But I would take pregnenolone at night. Right before your body is going to produce T. Not in the morning.

One of my main points here is my libido is through the roof! I got lucky last night. Nailed her 3 times and once this morning before she left. Now I haven’t been able to do that in years and years. In the last 3 years I’ve been 1 and done. Which we all know sucks. My warrior bounced right back 10-15 mins after I came last night. As if I was 20 again.

I agree that taking it at night is preferred, however there can be issues with insomnia when taking it then.. An alternative is 30 minutes before a weight session.. there’s a T spike after working out that can benefit from it.

Has anyone ever tried the method where you have say 7-10 different herbs that you cycle by taking one everyday and then starting over? The point being to keep your body from adapting to any of them. I saw this a on a website on boosting low testosterone. I was just curious if this principle has proven effective for anyone.

Thank you guys this reading these thread and articles may be enightening for an old wolf like me

@powerman Our sun here in Australia is very harsh so we have to be very careful

@gprent thank you and I am not sure what happened but I did not have much underarm smell for longtime 10 months of gym training brought about a test smell kind of manly smell is that testosterone levels raising?

I am 58 and not only that but muscle definition is also showing this late in life.

Thanks for the research

Good advice.. Although the bananas are somewhat confusing. I have always tended to shy away from them because of their high glycemic load.

I’d like to add to the portion under “SLEEP”
Sleep is a completly dark enviorment, no electronic lights, clock radio or ambiant light in any way whatsoever.
Blue light waves stop the production of meletonin which causes the natural release of HGH, or human growth hormone. HGH regenerates tissues for growth and repair of many cells in the body. Low GH levels cause erratic sleep patterns, bone loss, increased body fat and decreased muscle mass, strength and mental function. And if were talking about pumping, clamping and stretching, we need to be thinking about cell repair.

GH declines by 50 percent every seven years after the ages of 18 to 25.
