5 Foods to Keep Male Hormones in Balance


September 19, 2016

Hormones are often associated with the mood swings of females during pregnancy or their period. But men should also have an understanding of how their hormones work and what they can do to keep them in check. The most talked about male hormone is testosterone and it is responsible for making you tick. The least you could do is fuel that testosterone by adding these five foods to your diet.

Raw Carrots
Carrots are known for improving ocular health because they have a high concentration of Vitamin A. What most don’t know is that Vitamin A also contributes to healthy liver function and the liver is a warehouse for male hormone production. Increased levels of Vitamin A lead to an increase in testosterone and a decrease in estrogen.

The health food of millennials has yet another health benefit. Avocados contain ‘healthy fat’ that is rich in glutathione, an antioxidant that blocks the absorption of harmful fats. If you can avoid the buildup of harmful fat with the help of diet and exercise, your hormone levels should remain intact.

Everyone’s favorite breakfast fruit contains potassium to help recover from workouts and provide a boost in energy. Bananas also contain bromelain, an enzyme that helps break down amino acids and increases testosterone levels in adult males. If you participate in regular physical activity, you can’t afford to leave bananas out of your diet.

You don’t want to leave the scent on your breath, but garlic is a great compliment to any healthy meal. Garlic contains a compound called allicin which is known to reduce stress hormones in males. The less stress you endure, the better your body is going to perform.

They are great for heart and brain health and they are also a key component of the testosterone formation process, need we say more? Walnuts contain omega-3 acids, B Vitamins and Magnesium which are all linked to the formation of testosterone. Add them to your salad for a little crunch and peace of mind.

Diet and exercise are crucial to maintaining the body you want, but sometimes outside factors are difficult to overcome. Have you tried to maintain a certain body type but it never seems to work? It might not be your fault. There are various medical conditions and genetic issues that lead to hormone imbalance and anxiety related to physical appearance. If you want a little help achieving the body you desire, cosmetic surgery might be an option for you.
