Here’s a kick in the sweet tooth. Researchers from Ireland studied the effects of sugar consumption on testosterone secretion. They found that high blood sugar levels can sap your testosterone production by as much as 25 per cent. Even two hours after drinking 75 grams of glucose, 15 per cent of subjects still had very low levels of testosterone. So reduce your consumption of sugar and flour. Beer is probably a culprit, too. One thing to remember – if you get your testosterone tested, it needs to be done while fasting.
To help you succeed with your strength-training program, you need proper recovery. Your body doesn’t get stronger during exercise; it gets stronger after exercise. If you did your job with the weights, your body needs time to adapt to the stress and get stronger.
That includes proper sleep patterns. And a good night’s sleep will help maintain a healthy testosterone level.
In 1927, the University of Chicago’s Professor of Physiologic Chemistry, Fred C. Koch, established easy access to a large source of bovine testicles — the Chicago stockyards — and recruited students willing to endure the tedious work of extracting their isolates.
Also in that year, Koch and his student, Lemuel McGee, derived 20 mg of a substance from a supply of 40 pounds of bovine testicles that, when administered to castrated roosters, pigs and rats, remasculinized them. The group of Ernst Laqueur at the University of Amsterdam purified testosterone from bovine testicles in a similar manner in 1934, but isolation of the hormone from animal tissues in amounts permitting serious study in humans was not feasible until three European pharmaceutical giants—Schering (Berlin, Germany), Organon (Oss, Netherlands) and Ciba (Basel, Switzerland)—began full-scale steroid research and development programs in the 1930s.
