Supplements that Increase Testosterone, Naturally
Yes, there are actually two of them!
Vitamins A and D.
If you're deficient in either one, you're going to take a hit in the testosterone department!
Do you have adequate vitamin A levels in your system?
If you're living on a diet of packaged foods and processed carbs, probably not.
Junk carbs and packaged foods have almost no vitamin A, unless a useless synthetic version was added in after the fact by the manufacturer.
Do not depend on plant sources for vitamin A.
Your body has to convert the carotene's in plants into bio-available A that your body can use. Recent research suggests that humans are not very good at this conversion.

When the genital area was exposed, testosterone levels increased by 200%!

According to Donald L. Trump, president and CEO of Roswell Park Cancer Institute...
Substantial epidemiological data indicate a link between low vitamin D levels and an increased risk of a number of cancers.
Prostate cancer effects many more black men compared with white.
Because people with dark skin make less vitamin D than those with light skin.
In sun starved northern countries prostate cancer rates are substantially higher compared to countries with higher levels of sunshine.
The easiest way to get adequate levels of vitamin A and D into your diet is to take a high quality Cod Liver Oil supplement. I take 2 grams of this fish oil every night.
