What are your thoughts on Testosterone Therapy?


I read that two supplements can positively affect your testosterone levels.

  1. BCAA or branch chain amino acids have been shown to positively affect levels of testosterone. These are readily available in supplement form. Also though, they can be found in abundance in dairy products like cheese. Most people get the most benefit from branch chain amino acids when consumed right before a work out.
  2. Vitamin D has also been shown to help with all things male (everything from sperm quality to testosterone level). Get outside in the sun! In the real world most people need a supplement. For most, a high quality supplement with 5,000 IU’s does the trick.

I asked the same thing to my endo. His quote was, "You can take BCAAs and Vitamin D, but it will not do anything for your test levels." Take that for what it's worth.

If you are Vit D deficient you are not performing at your peak. Enter the following story:

In 1927 a controversy arose in the athletic world.

The German Swimmers' Association had decided to use a sunlamp on their athletes to boost performance. Some felt this ultraviolet irradiation constituted "athletic unfairness."

In other words, doping.

Dont forget to get more sleep, reduce stress, eat more meat, increase your exercise intensity, try some zinc, i3c and:


Fenugreek: Fenugreek extract has been shown to increase both bioavailable and free-testosterone levels naturally within the body. Based on available research, it's believed that fenugreek can decrease the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, thereby increasing overall natural testosterone levels, through naturally-occurring saponins within the seeds of the fenugreek plant.


Longjack: Longjack works to support free testosterone by inhibiting sex hormone-biding globulin (SHBG), which binds to testosterone and makes it unusable. The end result? More free testosterone—the kind your body can utilize.


Diindolylmethane (DIM): DIM is an anti-estrogen ingredient, supporting a more favorable testosterone-to-estrogen ratio. 


D-aspartic acid (DAA): Taking 2-3 grams per day for 1-3 months has been shown to increase testosterone.


Tribulus: This extract of tribulus alatus (Testafuranol) which is high in beta-sitosterol and furostanolic saponins, has been shown to increase libido and naturally boost testosterone levels.


Coleus forskohlii: 250 milligrams (standardized to 10% forskolin) taken twice a day for 12 weeks may increase testosterone. This herb can be tough on your stomach, so start at a lower 100-milligram dose and assess your tolerance.


just pulled these from some site, none of this is testosterone therapy, but if you find something that makes you feel good from this list, its worth a shot
