Testosterone Boosting Smoothie Series – Green Almighty

TESTOSTERONE BOOSTING SMOOTHIE SERIES – GREEN ALMIGHTY

This green smoothie can help boost testosterone levels by almost 20%.

I know some of you might find it weird or nasty to drink something green due to the fact that we are used to drink fruit smoothies that have a nice exotic color, but trust me once you start drinking those greens and feel the benefits you’ll start to be addicted and consume them on a daily basis.

Ingredients needed:

Preparation:

  • Crack the raw eggs
  • Add all ingredients in the blender and mix till you get the desired texture.
  • Then add the cashews or almonds on top and enjoy.

Let’s look at how each ingredient boosts our testosterone:

  • Eggs: As organic eggs are my main source of good cholesterol and many other important nutrients and without cholesterol there wouldn’t be any testosterone (proof)
  • Shilajit: is packed with extraordinary amount of minerals and fulvic acid that makes the nutrients more absorbent by our body thus increasing our testosterone levels by up to 23.5% (proof)
  • Ghee (clarified butter): is a healthy fat, which is lactose free, full of short and medium chain fatty acids such as Butyric acid and is a source of fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K. It has an excellent omega 6 and omega 3 ratio 1.5 to 1. Dietary fat can raise testosterone levels (proof)
  • Coconut Oil: this super oil supports the conversion of cholesterol to testosterone in our cells (proof)
  • Spirulina: is a micro algae and it’s one of the most nutrient dense food on earth like essential fatty acids, B vitamins, magnesium, 17 amino-acids, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin E, zinc, boron and selenium. It’s good for boosting testosterone because it has the ability to block estrogen which testosterone’s first enemy. Spirulina is also an excellent heavy metal detox food
  • Avocado: is a fruit really high in monounsaturated fats which increase testosterone levels (proof)

Why We Shouldn’t Consume Phytoestrogens?

What are phytoestrogens?

Phytoestrogens are estrogen hormone-like chemicals found in plants. They include a group of chemicals such as isoflavones, flavones, coumestans and lignans. The structure of this group of estrogen-like chemicals is similar to that of estrogen in human body. And when consumed, depending on the concentration of the phyto-estrogens in the diet and concentration of sex hormones in the body, life stage and gender, they have estrogenic and anti-estrogenic effects.

 

So why we should avoid consuming phyto-estrogens?

An over consumption of food rich in phyto-estrogen can lead to low testosterone levels especially in men.
Low testosterone is very bad for both men and women and the impact is not pleasant. Below are some side effects to name a few:

  • Low sex drive.
  • Depression.
  • Increase in cholesterol levels.
  • Muscle power and mass loss.
  • Lower the metabolism and accumulation of fat in higher and central part of the body.
  • Cardiovascular dangers.
  • Osteoporosis and bone weakness.
  • High blood pressure.

How to avoid a drop in testosterone levels?

As of Alex Malinsky, the Raw Guru who won several awards in the field of raw nutrition share his thoughts on how to increase and boost testosterone levels in both men and women naturally

Raw pine pollen is the richest seedbed of testosterone derived from plants; since it is the male sperm of pine trees, it fosters plush growth in all living creatures, from trees and plants, to animals, to humans.
Chinese medicine used pine pollen for over 2,000 years to restore health, prolong life and as an anti-aging nutrient.

This ultimate supplement is safe to use and with no fear of endocrine shutdown, this happens when we consume a hormone that is identical to the one the body produce and will occur when the glands stop working due to the fact that they are not being used.
Pine pollen’s molecular structure, i.e. the androgens, is not identical to that of the body; however, it is similar enough to produce beneficial health effects, without the risk of gland cessation of production.
