Hey guys, Sean Nalewanyj here of BodyTransformationTruth.
com and in this video I'm going to outline 3 testosteroneboosting supplements that actually work and I do think are worth looking into.
So for those of you who follow my videos on a regular basis, the title on this one mightseem a little surprising, because several months back I uploaded a video explainingwhy natural testosterone boosting supplements are basically a giant scam, and I'll linkthat video in the description box below if you do want to check it out.
And the reason for this is simple: although some of these compounds such as tribulus,or maca or fenugreek, d-aspartic acid etcetera, although some of them might deliver a veryslight increase in your overall testosterone levels, none of them will actually raise thoselevels high enough to have any measurable impact on your bottom line muscle gains orfat loss or training performance.
Always remember this, the idea of boosting testoterone in and of itself means virtuallynothing unless that increase is in a range capable of affecting your body composition,and in most cases this will require a boost of several hundred percent or more.
However, there is one situation in which supplementation can positively influence testosterone levelsto a degree that will directly improve your ability to build muscle and burn fat, andthat one situation is when you have a specific vitamin or mineral deficiency that is causingyour natural testosterone levels to dip below the normal range.
In this case, supplements can help to bring your testosterone levels back into properbalance and offset any negative effects that your lowered testosterone levels might havebeen causing.
So although it isn't possible for you to significantly increase your testosterone levels to an abovenormal range by using natural supplements, at least not currently, it is possible tooptimize your testosterone levels if they are currently at a below normal range.
So here are 3 deficiencies that are commonly seen in hard training lifters and in the generalpopulation overall.
First on the list is magnesium.
People who work out intensely tend to have lower levels of magnesium because this mineralis depleted from the body through sweating.
So supplementing with magnesium can help to restore balanced testosterone levels in thoseindividuals where a deficiency has been brought on by consistent hard training.
So the recommended dosage here is going to be 200 to 400 milligrams of magnesium takenwith a meal in either the form of magnesium gluconate, magnesium citrate or magnesiumdiglycinate.
And magnesium supplementation also has the added benefit of improving your sleep qualityif you have lower than normal levels.
Second on the list is zinc.
Just like magnesium, zinc is also lost through your sweat, and people who train intenselymultiple days per week are more likely to have a deficiency.
So 20 to 30 milligrams of zinc taken with a meal once per day is a reliable dosage tobring your levels back into proper balance and offset any potential testosterone decreasingeffects that it might be causing.
And if you don't sweat alot then I'd recommend going with a lower dosage of 10 to 15 milligramsjust to be on the safe side.
And third on the list is Vitamin D3.
I covered in length in a previous video, and again, I'll link this is the description boxbelow, why most people out there should be supplementing with Vitamin D3 and optimizingtestosterone levels is just one of the many reasons.
Unless you live in a very warm climate and you're spending multiple hours a day outsidein the sun, then there is a very good chance that your Vitamin D levels are below wherethey should be.
Not only can this negatively impact your overall health, your mood and your energy levels,but it can also decrease your testosterone levels as well.
So consuming between 2,000 to 5,000 IU's per day of Vitamin D3 alongside a meal is a reliabledosage to get you back into the proper range.
Technically speaking, you would have to get blood work done in order to determine exactlyhow much Vitamin D that you should be supplementing with daily, however, the risk of Vitamin Dtoxicity is very low with the available research showing around 10,000 IU's to be the safeupper limit.
So if you're working out intensely multiple days per week and especially if you sweatalot and also if your work a strenuous job, then these 3 supplements are something thatmight be worth looking into.
You can purchase all of them separately on their own, or you can simply go with a highpotency multivitamin, my top recommendation being Life Force Multiple and I will alsolink that in the description box below if you want to check it out, however, do keepin mind that the multivitamin is only going to provide you with the bottom end of therecommended dosages for each of the compounds that I outlined.
So although these supplements are not going to raise your testosterone levels to an abovenormal level, they will help to ensure that your testosterone levels and your resultingmuscle gains and fat loss are operating at their natural peak.
