Naturally increase your testosterone levels
Just like your overall health and well-being, your testosterone levels are naturally affected by life choices. Testosterone can be boosted naturally by making positive lifestyle changes.1 This is a good thing, as generally most of us could benefit from a healthier diet and a little more exercise.
Get enough sleep
A hectic lifestyle where you are not getting enough sleep can result in reduced testosterone levels. Aim for 7–8 hours of sleep a night. Making good rest a priority can be more important for your health than you might realise.
Stress can directly affect the way your body releases testosterone. If you work long hours, try to take regular breaks where possible, and make sure you spend time doing activities that help you relax and wind down.
A healthy diet gives your body everything it needs to look after itself. It’s important to eat lots of fruit and vegetables and only have sugar, red or processed meat and alcohol in moderation. Eating a healthy diet is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and can naturally boost testosterone levels.
Maintain a healthy weight
Being very overweight or underweight can naturally reduce your testosterone levels. Having too much fat around the waist is also closely related to testosterone deficiency.1 Keeping your weight stable and healthy can really help keep testosterone levels up. Use the BMI calculator to see how you are doing.
Exercise is nature’s best testosterone booster. Testosterone levels are higher in physically active men. Regular activity helps your brain to send out signals to your body to boost testosterone production. Find out more about how much exercise you should be doing each week.
