List of spices that will boost testosterone

Turmeric is a yellow spice powder, most commonly used in curry.

It has been cited to be one of the world’s most healthiest foods, as it’s extremely high in bio-active antioxidants which provide the human body with a huge list of health benefits.

But the thing that most people fail to realize, is that turmeric is also a potent testosterone booster.

Turmeric has gained some big time reputation among women who use it successfully as an aid to beat breast cancer. It helps as it’s an extremely anti-estrogenic substance.

Even The Journal of Applied Bio medicine cites that turmeric could be very effective against moobs (man boobs). And of course turmeric should help as man breasts are caused by male estrogen imbalance.

But here’s where things start to get even more interesting:

1. A not even so high dose of curcumin, a principal bio-active compound in turmeric, has been shown to significantly increase serum testosterone levels in male wistar rats. Reports The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Obviously we are not rats, and rat studies are never the same as human equivalents, but still it’s worth to notice that male wistar rats share almost identical reproductive systems as us humans do.

A closer look into that study mentioned above shows that the rats fed with curcumin noticed a statistically significant 257% increase in serum testosterone levels. Also their sperm quality, motility, and quantity increased.

2. Then there’s this human study that found out the cardio protective effects of turmeric, as the researchers found out that a small dose of 500mg/day, increased HDL cholesterol by 29% (this is the “good” cholesterol that according to science, protects our heart and is the principal precursor of testosterone).

3. Also this animal study found out that curcumin (again the main ingredient in turmeric) is highly anabolic, which is awesome (yet again, animal study. But still a hugely positive sign).

4. Not to mention that the researchers at Hubei University of Medicine in China found out in their in-vitro study that turmeric truly is anti-estrogenic. Obviously everything anti-estrogenic will be beneficial for testosterone levels.
