Low T and Vitamin D – What You Can Be Eating to Boost This Essential Vitamin

Low T and Vitamin D – What You Can Be Eating to Boost This Essential Vitamin

There have been many studies out there about the link between low T and vitamin D. In fact, research suggests that sufficient levels of vitamin D will help regulate your testosterone levels.

Many men out there are struggling with low T and find that their testosterone levels only decrease as they age. Decreasing testosterone levels is common in men—but unfortunately, if your testosterone levels get too low, they can have several unpleasant side effects.  This can include low libido, weight gain, poor muscle tone, and even depression.

The good news is, there are many things that you can do to help naturally boost your testosterone levels—including efforts to increase your vitamin D levels. Quality sleep, physical activity, weight management, zinc, magnesium, and vitamin D are all proven solutions to help you sustain proper testosterone levels.

But how exactly do you make sure your body is producing enough vitamin D? Ideally, you have enough vitamin D just through regular sunlight exposure. However, for people who aren’t getting enough vitamin D from the sun, there are things that you can add to your diet to make sure you are getting enough of this essential vitamin:

  • Mushrooms
  • Fatty Fish
  • Seafood
  • Egg Yolks
  • Fortified Foods
