Increasing Male Testosterone

Updated on June 27, 2015

Low T is the absence of testosterone in older men for a variety of reasons. Age does decrease levels of it and this impacts sexual libido, hard-ons, muscle strength, semen development. Clear semen may indicate Low T because it lacks the nutrients that sperm rely on. That milky appearance indicates a more healthy normal testosterone level. Normal testosterone levels do not make you a muscle man like many ads portray. You still have to lift weights and the act of exercise helps increase testosterone levels in men if sufficient. Lots of foods also can increase Low T levels like meat, veggies, eggs, high protein. But if you are looking for a supplement, make sure you find one containing the following ingredients:

  • Zinc - at least 15 mg.
  • Vitamin B-1 - 300 mg.
  • Biotin
  • Vitamin D - 5000 IU
  • Saw Palmetto - 500 mg
  • Boron - 100 mg
  • Niacin- 1500 mg
  • Arginine - 1500 mg

Many of the supplements contain herbs. The usual ones most have are:

  • Tribulus
  • Shiliat
  • Broccoli powder
  • Stinging Nettle
  • Velvet Bean
  • Korean Red Ginseng Root

Of course, Low T issues and sexual performance is a complicated issue and there are many interactions within the body.Sexual performance for men is usually about how long and hard his penis is erect. The health of his semen is secondary most of the time unless the couple is trying to have a baby. A low semen count may be attributed to Low T or other health issues that cause it. Increasing the blood flow to the penis makes it erect and hard when aroused and there is a psychological element to good sex and male performance. All these elements come into play during arousal. One wrong move or touch, could make an erection limp, for some men, frustrating all concerned. Studies show that for many men, the best time for sex is in the morning when their body is rested and the sexual libido is high. That is why many men awake with a hard-on. Studies show that niacin alone can improve the erectile function in patients suffering from moderate to severe ED and dyslipidemia.
