Supplements are a great option for those looking to improve their overall health. Many supplements can have positive health effects on the body, including improving testosterone production.
Here is a list of supplements that have been shown to help with the natural production of testosterone.
- A fruit-producing Mediterranean plant that is often taken to help increase athletic performance and can help with a variety of other health issues.
- Studies have shown that it can help increase testosterone in animals, but so far, no evidence has shown the same effect in humans
- A small shrub that grows in India, it is commonly used to help with stress or sometimes used as an adaptogen (supplements that help with promoting homeostasis in the body)
- In one study, Ashwagandha was shown to have increased testosterone levels between 10% and 22% in some men
- Fenugreek is an herb native to the Mediterranean region
- Some evidence shows that Fenugreek can help with testosterone production
- A hormone that is produced by the body’s adrenal glands. It is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone
- Most evidence that has shown DHEA only works to increase testosterone in older men
Pine Bark Extract
- As you may have guessed, Pine Bark extract is extracted from Pine Trees. It is often used to help with inflammation and supporting heart health
- In most studies, pine bark was paired with L-Arginine (an amino acid) and was shown to have a positive effect on individuals with low testosterone and erectile dysfunction
- Ginger comes from the root of a plant that grows in the warmer parts of Asia, such as India, China, and Japan
- In a variety of different studies performed on rats and humans, testosterone increased. One study featuring over 74 men, showed testosterone increase 17% after taking ginger
- Zinc is one of the essential trace elements. Essential trace elements are a group of minerals that the body requires in trace amounts to function normally
- Zinc has been shown to help with testosterone production and fertility, however, it is likely only beneficial to those who are in a zinc deficit
- Vitamin D is naturally produced by the body when it is exposed to sunlight. The body uses it to assist with the absorption of calcium
- Some evidence shows that Vitamin D may assist in the creation of testosterone
- Garlic is a species of plant from the onion family.
- Only one study has been done on the positive effect of garlic on testosterone, but it was done on rats, not humans
- A fast-growing vine native to tropical Asia
- In a study done on rats, testosterone was shown to have increased after using Basella Alba
- A flavonoid that occurs naturally in a variety of plants and substances such as passionflower, silver linden, geranium species, and honey
- The human body does not absorb chrysin particularly well, but it was shown to increase sperm mobility, sperm concentration, and testosterone levels

- Works by creating more follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. Both of these stimulate leydig cells in the testes, which then create more testosterone
