Things that affect our testosterone

I know diet and exercise affect it, but do the decisions you make, your philosophy and mentality, your thoughts affect it as well? Also, does the season (winter vs. summer) make a difference? I sometimes find I'm getting a bit depressed/weak (also in frame), less driven, even though my diet and exercise is in check.

Personally if I were you I’d get a Berkeley filter water, or get natural spring water from your nearest source

[–]Ill_mumble_that45 points46 points  (10 children) | Copy

Reverse osmosis kit on amazon. $197. Takes the water down to 0 ppm absolutely pure. Get one with an Alkaline filter and it then adds essential minerals back and lands around 20 ppm. Might as well get the UV filter too because fuck it, bacteria and shit in the water ain't good.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (1 child) | Copy

This. Might be expensive but you should be No.1 that’ll make you feel good. Will also improve your health by tons and will block out any unnecessary chemicals put out in our waters.

You replace the cartridges. There is a normal schedule. It is written all over the kits.

Even Osmosis can’t do the trick, pesticides on water can also affect your balls, charcoal filter should be there as well, Dr. Tracy Gapin expands on how to optimize and take care of your balls.

[–]Ill_mumble_that7 points8 points  (2 children) | Copy

The multistage RO kits on Amazon at that price point include charcoal.

[–]notajith2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah typically, one sediment filter, two carbon blocks, the to membrane. Sometimes a charcoal filter to fix the flavor

Do you know the brand?

[–]perplexedm1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

BPA effects are reportedly serious but considered essential buy industry. There was a post by someone who working in factory manufactured it where huge percentage of employees got cancer.

And it is found in majority of fast food packing materials even including paper packs.

Great post! Do you know the brand by chance?

[–]EdvardMunch2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I have a Berkey, its great. Its probably my favorite household item.

[–]cactushatter0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Is that a reverse osmosis filter? Thanks in advance

[–]EdvardMunch0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not exactly sure, I just know the two black filters I have in it remove pretty much everything known under the sun from dye to drugs to parasites, etc. I get enough minerals from other sources and it helps ease my anxiety that i'm drinking water that just taste like wet.

[–]PhaedrusHunt1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Best drinking water situation is filtered rainwater if you can swing it

Plastic water bottles suck. Even those so called Bpa Free bottles have other chemicals in them like Bps. I’d get a Stainless Steel one or a glass water bottle like hydro flask

[–]Casanova-Quinn1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Stainless steel bottles, like Klean Kanteen.

Cortisol is the biggest killer of testosterone.

[–]CaptainFajita16 points17 points  (5 children) | Copy

A couple of years ago my drive slowly wound down and crashed. Finally got tested and T was about 310. Took me a long while to sort it out, but in my case it was excessive aspartame consumption. Before some jackwagon starts badgering me for a source, no, I don't have one. There are some mutterings here and there on the web about it, and my own personal experience, is all I have. Took a while, but getting off diet colas finally fixed me.

[–]320d__1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

How much of that stuff were you drinking? I am drinking a ton of that shit now, this might be a legit reason to quit...

[–]CaptainFajita1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

Wayyyyy too much. Eight to ten per day, usually. I read somewhere else that the phosphoric acid interferes with Vitamin D3 metabolism, a crucial part of the chemical cocktail necessary for optimum T production.

[–]320d__1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Fuck man I am drinking like 3 liters of coke zero per day. I will quit right after I finish my current stash.

[–]CaptainFajita1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

My drug of choice was Cherry Coke Zero. Sometimes I'd put away a case of 12-oz cans per day and then two or three 16-oz bottles through the evening, all the while congratulating myself for getting off many, many years of sugared colas. Was taking in so much fluid I was constantly pissing almost straight water (plus some essential vitamins, I'm guessing).

Had to go cold turkey off that shit, and went to unsweetened tea, a piss-poor substitue, but I eventually got used to it. Got to thinking about it later and realized you never see thin people drinking diet soda. They're mostly all fatties too, just like the ones drinking sugared colas.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Just throw it all out now.

[–]Diche_Bach12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy

I used to be a biological anthropology prof. Read shit tons of articles on this stuff all the way through the 1970s to early aughties. I highly recommend the work of a deceased psychobiologist: James Dabbs. His stuff is (a) right in the middle of that period (well latter middle); (b) extremely rich with citations; (c) probably still highly cited to this day.

One of his studies that stuck with me: they did a sample of daily T-levels in around 1000 men, all around the 25 to 35 age range IIRC, and stratified by occupation. Main focus of the paper was to test if occupations which one would predict have higher T have higher T (professional football players, firemen, cops): yep! They did!

Unexpected finding: there was a sub-set of "non-physical" types of jobs that were clustered up near the tough guy jobs listed above: standup comedians and evangelical ministers!

[–]GlowInTheDarkDonkey7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

In short: people who need to be in charge. Not really so unexpected, I would think. If they had said receptionist or florist then that would be unexpected.

[–]Dimenzije9049 points50 points  (23 children) | Copy

I heard about exposing your balls to the sunlight. Im not even kidding. There are countless of guys on YT and Forums talking about how it helped them. Im not sure it works but next time youre sunbathing in your yard it wont hurt to show of your alpha balls.

[–]rockyp3212 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

Do these guys try just getting more sunlight before? Or did they just go straight to SUNLIGHT ON BALLS? Cause if they tried getting more sunlight everywhere else and that didn’t work but only noticed a difference when the sun was on there balls that’d be interesting

[–]Dimenzije901 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Actually i remember beeinga debate on somewhere about this. And some guy even showed some research about direct sunlight on balls beeing more effiecent. But i really cant remember where i saw that. This all is quite unique so i guess you dont have much research about this.

Edit: im not claiming this will help. But its worth a shot. Also Richard Cooper has talked about this and he even does it but he uses ultrared light or some shit like that. And he also says it improoved his T levels.

[–]rockyp322 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I heard that’s been debunked but yeah I feel better when I get more sunlight definitley

[–]PachoHerrera038 points39 points  (18 children) | Copy

Good way to get testicular cancer.

[–]Adam35815 points16 points  (2 children) | Copy

Only for a few minutes. Chopping wood is said to also increase it.

[–]poopdeck64 points65 points  (1 child) | Copy

Bro do you even chop wood with your balls basking in the sunlight? I heard a shot of bonobo squirt increases T bro

[–]its_meKnightSwolaire1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]zlodej878 points9 points  (3 children) | Copy

Yup, the same way you get brain cancer exposing head to the sunlight

[–]dtyler8611 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy

That’s not how cancer works. Maybe skin cancer on your testicles

[–]SkotchKrispie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Correct, and skin cancer on your balls would be very bad seeing as the skin is thin and more than likely you would have to have your balls removed to stop the cancer. I wouldn’t recommend putting your balls in the sun exposed. Vitamin D is created when any skin is exposed to the sun; it is important.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy

Pretty sure cavemen we’re always naked before. And we all know they have high test

[–]PachoHerrera021 points22 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah I’m sure that’s why

[–]theyearsstartcomin2 points3 points  (6 children) | Copy

You need sunburn to get skin cancer. A few minutes of sun a day is not only not harmful its good for any part of your skin

Also, not how test cancer works. You'd get a melanoma

[–]PachoHerrera010 points11 points  (4 children) | Copy

I know how cancer works, wasn’t being serious. You also do not have to get burned to increase risk of cancer.

[–]theyearsstartcomin0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

Gotcha. Cant tell here anymore whos serious

Anyway, ya true, but sunburn is the only noticeable one unless you do tanning beds and even then its such a small increase its only useful over lifetimes worth of sunburns

[–]PachoHerrera00 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Lol not at all man, one tanning session increases your risk of melanoma by something like 25%.

Doesn’t stop me from doing tanning beds in the summer tho... I unfortunately have no other way of getting sun without leaving the country 😂

[–]theyearsstartcomin2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I meant sunburns not tanning, thats my fault on the wording

Tannings big gay dude. Powdery white skin is baller

[–]PachoHerrera01 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Pfft. Skin cancer is alpha. Sidebar bro.

[–]Gawernator0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That’s not exactly true

[–]Gandalfthegrey23231 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It could be vitamin D production. Sunlight in general is healthy for you. As long as you aren’t over doing it.

[–]AceMav218 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Does drinking vodka excessively every night affect it?

[–]theUnBannableHulk45 points46 points  (77 children) | Copy

  1. Vitamin D

  2. Vitamin C

  3. Fapping

  4. Not working out

  5. Not enough sunlight

  6. Depression

Edit: Lots of butthurt coomers in the comments I see 😏

Let’s ask a simple question:

What are higher...chances of winning a fight against a compulsive COOMER or chances of winnng a fight against a guy who doesn’t spend all day cooming over pixelated images and has control and discipline over his sex drive.

There ya go, stop excusing your lack of masculinity and discipline with (((science))) coomers but hey if you wanna coom all day, go ahead, you’re weak men and

the weak are meat the strong do eat. 👌🏻

[–]AlxndrMd115 points16 points  (14 children) | Copy

Vitamin D and C affect T?

[–]Dimenzije9027 points28 points  (0 children) | Copy

Zinck has been prooven to improve testosterone the most right behind it is vitamin d.

[–]redvelvet_oreo18 points19 points  (6 children) | Copy

Dont sleep on Vitamin D. I had an issue with it dropping like 2 points below normal reference range and being low normal over 3 - 4 years. I never thought anything of it becuase my multivitman had 1000IU of D3 and my doctors never said it was a problem. I felt horrible especially coming to brain fog and lack of sex drive. My T levels were also low like 280 at the time. I did everything I could to fix my T level and got it to about 550 but still suffered the same symptoms.

Long story short I read Chris Kressers blog and he had an article about Tesosterone and a few other articles I read about fixing your blood work. I started with vitamind D3 and started taking 5000IU and in a week all my sympthoms went away and I was waking up with morning wood every day. I have been meaning to get follow up blood work to check my T levels but with COVID I rather just wait till its over.

One thing to note is if you line in a city like my and have an office job and live in a place that dosent get much sunlight you may not realize how little natural vitamin D you get.

[–]Ill_mumble_that8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Lack of vitamin d hurts you.

Over taking vitamin d has no benefit.

Your body makes a shit ton of vitamin d from sun exposure

[–]redvelvet_oreo3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

No on said to over take Vitamin D.

After considering my life style and how very little sunlight I get it makes sense why its been a problem for me. If you live in a major city like NYC and have an office job you should test yourself annually. You would be shocked how many people back with low or low normal results.

Not to mention if you work out you also excrete micronutrients as well. A Lot of things to consider.

If you are concerned with dosage you should consult with a doctor.

[–]Protocol_Apollo1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

What supplement did you use to get 5000IU?

[–]redvelvet_oreo1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

NOW Foods

[–]notajith1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

If you can't find 5000, just take 5 1000IU

[–]Str8_Pillin1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

A spray is better than a pill

[–]JarHeadJoseph11 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy

There are probably 10 different micronutrients that effect T big time. When I got them in order, I felt 10x better.

Zinc, potassium, magnesium, sodium, boron, vitamin c, d, a I take everyday.

[–]Protocol_Apollo7 points8 points  (4 children) | Copy

Not sure about C, but vitamin d3 (make sure it’s d3 not d2) zinc and eating enough healthy fat does increase testosterone.

[–]MagnetoWned2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

any recommendations on zinc to get? ionic zinc at a grocery store?

[–]Protocol_Apollo3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

Most supplements at the grocery store are shit: they are generic/their own brand.

I use zinc picolinate: this is probably the best form followed by zinc citrate.

More specifically, I use the one by solgar since they don’t add any other extra stuff.

[–]notajith1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I forget why, but picolinate is the one that's supposed to be best

[–]MagnetoWned0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Got it, thanks!

[–]Casanova-Quinn8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

  1. Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night (8 is preferable)

[–]Gandalfthegrey23231 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fapping increases cortisol levels, complete opposite is true.

[–]Zapche-4 points-3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fapping is definitely fine.

[–]hombredelmurir-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fapping reduces test levels?

[–]RedPillAlphaBigCock7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes thoughts matter . Stress kills test. Get organised and do work , make yourself feel like a winner and you will lower stress and have better sleep.

[–]Vofz8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Having oneitis fucked up my testosterone levels for sure

[–]HelveticusVIII0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

your body feels the beta energy and goes nope, you're not gonna be needing this

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

Vitamin D3 5000 IU daily. 200mg caffiene in the morning cycled 6 weeks on 1 week off. 50mg of zinc chelate, picolinate, or orotate. Multivitimin. Lifting heavy. Limiting ejaculation to once a week. Reduce daily stress. Don't drink alcohol more than once a week and dont get smashed when you do it. Omega 3-6-9 in high doses. Melatonin 10mg every night cycled 6 weeks on 1 week off (sinc this up with your caffiene cycle). Panax Ginseng. Damiana. Pro-biotic.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

*limiting masturbation to once a week, not ejaculation.

Because if you're pounding young girls several per week then it's actually good for T and the prostate - dick and brain know the difference.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Pound as many young girls as you want. You don't have to cum everytime you have sex. Testosterone peaks after one week of not ejaculating.

[–]K-Samra4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Your body is effected by your mind as well as vice versa. So yes, your mindset will effect T

[–]Innovative_being7 points8 points  (3 children) | Copy

If you’re a natural, the only two ways to make a measurable difference in your test levels is to get lean and get enough sleep each night.

Everything else is bullshit that won’t have any measurable effect.

If you really want a test boost that will show in the gym and libido, you will have to get on TRT or run a steroid cycle.

[–]hombredelmurir0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

For men who are over 50 and experiencing ED, will TRT and lifting completely fix their problem?

[–]Innovative_being1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It should, that’s one of the main reasons TRT is prescribed. If that fails then there’s always cialis/viagra

[–]Delicious_Knowledge1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

You would feel 18 years old again on TRT.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (11 children) | Copy

Being married. When I was married I had low T counts, like 230-260. After I got divorced my level was 560. It has been holding at the higher levels. Just sayin’.

[–]PUA_Fan10 points11 points  (5 children) | Copy

[–]rockyp324 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy

You see so stress must’ve lowered that plus probbsly frequent release

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

I dont know about frequent release! haha. But Stress...oh yes.

[–]rockyp323 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

The more you retain the more masculine you become. You always lose some energy during sex or jacking off. It’s not some magical Hindu shit but creating semen and all that shit has enough nutrients and hormones inside of it to make a fucking human! When you lose that shit you lose a percentage of those hormones. Plus many brain changes. No it doesn’t mean you can’t be strong and release frequently but you’ll be that much stronger without it. Beat off as much as possible and see how you feel for a few weeks then go cold turkey and compare I guarantee you’ll feel much better retaining.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I was joking about when I was married and having “frequent release”...I actually had less sex as the marriage rolled onward! I agree with everything you are saying brother. All of it.

I am higher test when I game women. Even just getting rejected, I feel much stronger for cold appraoching.

For anyone wondering, this is not true at all. Soy is indeed packed with estrogen but it is packed with phytoestrogen, aka the vegetal form of estrogen. Our body does not process it like it would normal estrogen and so it does not impact you T levels or estrogen levels in any way.

[–]wtfdoiaskfor10 points1 point  (22 children) | Copy

[–]wtfdoiaskfor116 points17 points  (18 children) | Copy

Dude, you're making a claim, it's on you to prove it.

It's not the truth. I've seen plenty of evidence (i.e. studies) that show that soy does not significantly lower testosterone. I'm open to change my mind if you find better evidence against it.

[–]opper-hombre12 points3 points  (12 children) | Copy

I’m not sure if soy decreases testosterone, but it does increase estrogen production

Are you like on hardcore estrogen replacement or something? Trying to make sure you keep those bitch tit gainz?

[–]wtfdoiaskfor17 points8 points  (6 children) | Copy

I'm not on anything, I just have the basic decency to fact-check shit before blindly believing it, i.e. I refuse to believe things just because people say so.

Like RP. We don't believe shit society says just because, and the same way, I don't believe unfounded bullshit without source.

Just saying, a lot of the shit people say is wrong and it takes a few PubMed searches to see that. Misinformation != bitch tit gainz, you uneducated sad BP.

Edit: to add to that, I do steroid cycles and regular bloodwork and have no problem controlling my hormones or my physique. You might want to check your own bitch tit gainz before you project onto people.

Source is google.com

I honestly don't give a fuck as I've learned that people online don't want their opinion to get changed anyway.

You will find so many varying opinions on this. Some claim it does, some say it doesn't.

"Some research shows that regularly eating soy products like edamame, tofu, soy milk and miso may cause a drop in testosterone levels."

[–]wtfdoiaskfor11 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

I honestly don't give a fuck as I've learned that people online don't want their opinion to get changed anyway.

Look, I don't have an opinion. You can't have an opinion. I'm asking for a source for the claims. This is not an opinion, it's objective, hard, scientific data.

If you have that - I'm open to read and believe. Otherwise, I'll challenge everything and anything, since I myself read a lot of studies and know for a fact that a lot of stuff people say is complete nonsense. Or rather - broscience. And since I know they don't have a source, I ask for it, and then I get idiotic answers like yours.

It's not about an opinion. My opinion is that the blue color is better looking than red, that's an opinion and you won't change it.

But science? Throw a few well-conducted studies with decent data and you have my attention.

Your body produces a small drop of test anyway...

[–]aegeaorgnqergerh0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Genetics mainly. Anything else is largely negligible aside from certain medical conditions or medications which can suppress it.

It is true however that low testosterone is probably the key reason behind the awful male suicide rate (compare a graph of male suicide rates by age, and male natural testosterone levels by age, and the correlation is scary) and a lot of research is being done into this.

If you feel you have symptoms of low testosterone, my main advice would be to get your levels checked. Low drive, lack of confidence, poor mood, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc are all classic symptoms of low testosterone.
