    testosterone

    Primal Fuel
    I am researching for ways to naturally increase testosterone in men after the age of 50 or so. Mark talks about this here and there but can't seem to find his resources or older posts about this topic.

    Try cod liver oil. Vitamin A has been linked to increased testosterone, and CLO is a very good source. Personally, I take a tablespoon a day. It also gives you a boost in vitamins D and K.

    Lifting heavy things is about the best option.

    Optimize zinc and vitamin A as both are used in the production of T, but especially zinc. Having messed around with D to A ratios, I find that I do best with a 6:1 D to A ratio.....more A than that and I start to have symptoms of A toxicity even though I'm technically not A toxic - it's alllll about ratios. Ca:Mg:K Na:K Zn:Cu K:Kcal D:A Ω3:Ω6 ratios ratios ratios

    And don't be afraid to get an rx for testosterone. It's important stuff.

    The primal blueprint Laws will all raise your testosterone dramatically (diet, exercise, sunlight, sleep, etc) and naturally.

    Other than that go with zinc pills.

If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

    ZMA before bed, Vitamin D

    Lowering stress and losing fat could have significant impact. Along with all the others stated above

    Get a quality sleep, balanced diet is also important, Zinc is very useful to increase testosterone level also consume Vitamin B6 and magnesium to aid in zinc absorption and the converting of free cholesterol to testosterone, and avoid alcohol.

    Thanks AntonG. Where did you find your resource for raising fat levels, if you don't mind sharing. I am eating PB and Paleo.

    The herb, tribulus terrestris, is touted by Asian physicians and Russian body builders to be a wonderful way to boost testosterone. Western pharmacologists claim that it is of little value. Friends that have used it in my geriatric circles claim it is wonderful.

    I leave it for you to investigate and decide. http://www.ayurvediccure.com/tribulus-terrestris.htm

    My favorite 'go-to guy' is Dr. James Duke, an ethnobiologist. In his book, "The Green Pharmacy", he recommends fava bean, ginkgo biloba, velvet bean (macuna), anise, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, American ginseng, and a few others. All are not required, just the ones that appeal most to the user.

    The cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger are especially liked by my old guys group.
