There are a few ways that are known and backed by research that help to raise your testosterone naturally.
Strength training can induce growth hormone and testosterone release, regardless of age.
Men exposed to the scent of an ovulating woman subsequently displayed higher levels of testosterone than did men exposed to the scent of a non-ovulating woman or a control scent.
Sleep duration, independently of age, aerobic exercise, and body fat, was positively associated with increasing testosterone.
When cortisol–a hormone released in the body in response to threat–increases, the body is mobilized to escape danger, rather than respond to any influence that testosterone is having on behavior.
Men’s daily urinary excretion of testosterone also was 13% higher with the high-fat, low-fiber diet than with the low-fat, high-fiber diet (P = 0.01). Conversely, their urinary excretion of estradiol and estrone and their 2-hydroxy metabolites were 12-28% lower with the high-fat, low-fiber diet (P < or = 0.01). Results of this study suggest that diet may alter endogenous sex hormone metabolism in men.
Results confirmed these hypotheses, showing a 40 percent higher prevalence of low testosterone in obese men compared to the non-obese participants.
