How to increase your testosterone!


  • If you're a man over the age of 35, pay close attention. I'll be discussing the two most essential lab tests you should get to confirm that your testosterone levels are within the normal range.

  • Let me give you some context. Here is a copy of my personal testosterone lab report. As you can see, the normal range for testosterone is between 250 to 827. At the time of writing this, I will be turning 50 next year, and my testosterone level is 823, which is in the top 25% of the normal range. In addition to testosterone, you should also get your fasting insulin and fasting homocysteine levels checked.

  • Fasting insulin measures how your body responds to sugar and glucose, and the normal range is between 5 to 20. Ideally, I aim to see my clients with a level close to 5 or 6. The lower your fasting insulin, the higher your testosterone levels will be. The second important marker is homocysteine. Homocysteine levels can range from 3 to 16, with an optimal range of 5 to 6. If your homocysteine level is above 7, it's an indicator that it's not in an optimal range.

  • Homocysteine can cause dysfunction and damage to your endothelial cells, leading to poor blood flow and other health problems. If you found this information useful, please like, comment, and share it with someone who could benefit from it.
