I have been watching TV ads about lawsuits over testosterone supplements.
Apparently, they can cause heart and blood problems. The same is true for female hormone supplements
We need to understand that gender hormones are supposed to decrease with age.
This is the way God designed us.
Reproduction, in general, leads to child bearing, and older people do not have the stamina for raising children that younger people do.
We need to age gracefully.
We cannot always be 15 years old.
We can still have interest in the physical side of life, but we should be balancing the physical with the spiritual more and more, the older we get.
Diet Alternatives to drugs:
There is a natural way to boost testosterone without harming oneself.
Changing your diet
Have the following foods on your shopping list the next time you go to the supermarket. It is advisable to buy all or as many of the items as possible. Some foods will work better for some people so buying them all and experimenting is the best way.
Avocados contain libido-boosting B vitamins, E vitamin and fatty acids. Avocado is a “powerful” sexual energy booster.
High in amino acids and zinc. Figs are fantastic natural libido boosters. Even if they are not in season or in your country, you can get dried figs pretty much from any supermarket or health food store.
Onions and garlic
You need to eat these as raw as possible! Onions and garlic increase blood flow to all organs including the penis and vagina. You can swallow small garlic cloves and add onions to salads. If you have to fry them, then so be it but make sure you get some onions and garlic into your diet. Oh and stock up on mints and chewing gums as you may end up not having a partner to unleash your new sexual powers on!!!
Contains vitamin E and essential for a healthy sex life. Ever wonder why the Italians are such great lovers (allegedly!)?
OK, the Chinese are not renowned for being great lovers but they sure know their herbs! Though Ginseng is not a “food” as such, it is an “essential” addition to your arsenal for a healthy sexual appetite. Pop 1-2 high quality Ginseng tablets a day and see the difference.
Full of essential oils, zinc and great for hormone production. Also good for the prostate.
Eggs are extremely beneficial to having a great sex life. They are full of protein, vitamins and minerals.
Full of bromelain, B vitamins and potassium. Bananas also increase overall energy.
Celery can increase testosterone levels.

A seriously strong herb for boosting testosterone levels, so critical to increased sexual desire.

They heat up your body. Get ready for some “hot” sex! Just have the fire extinguisher nearby!!!
This is one of the most powerful sexual stimulants. It is not at the top of the list because it is not really your “every day” food. If you can get hold of it, even as a supplement, go for it.

If you can get hold of this too, you are on your way to a great sex life. It is great for overall sex hormone production.

The best-known aphrodisiac.
Most fish have essential fatty acids, great for increased sexual energy.
NOT the sugary type. This needs to be at least 70%+ cocoa. Then you will see benefits in mood and sexual appetite. Don’t overdo it as you don’t want to get fat in the process of becoming a sex god/godess.
How to combine and see results
Like most lists you probably go over it, memorize some of it and put it into action…maybe…if you remember.
STOP. Don’t treat this like any other list. Print it out and take it with you to your local supermarket.
Once you have bought the foods, start incorporating them in your diet.
Eat some bananas and a handful of pumpkin seeds and almonds mid morning.
Salad: Make a salad and add avocado, dried figs, celery, boiled eggs and onions to it. Add lots of olive oil.
Grill some asparagus with your lunch and dinner. Try and have fish rather than chicken or turkey.
Add ginger, chilies and basil to sauces.
Adding a few of the foods listed below can boost your testosterone especially when combined with regular weight training.
