Natural Testosterone Booster
What if I told you that I knew of a supplement that was a natural testosterone booster of
30% or more? I hope that you’d put me in a hammerlock until I gave you the name
of this little miracle worker! Well, actually, you don’t need to put any sort of
WWE hold on me, because it’s actually not a supplement that is such a powerful
testosterone booster – it’s your mind.
Your attitudes about life, about yourself and about sex have a profound impact on your
testosterone (and libido for that matter). Psychology is incredibly important for all guys
and is arguably the most powerful of all the natural testosterone boosters.
Now, before I go on, I want you to know that I am not saying that low
testosterone is "all in your head". Some of you have had bad experiences
with doctors regarding low testosterone and/or erectile dysfunction where the
doctor said or implied it was all psychological on your part and that is
certainly not always the case.

Natural Versus Testosterone Therapy
That's not what I'm talking about here: I'm talking about using your mind
as an actual testosterone booster that is completely natural and totally free. There's nothing to feel guilty about:
I am simply giving you a "mental supplement", if you will, to take as
part of your solution. Below I am going to give you some key ways
to use your attitude and your outlook on life as a legitimate natural testosterone
"But I want a pill", some of you are probably saying. Well, forget that idea: the FDA has
banned every legitimate testosterone booster that has hit the market.
6-OXO is a classic example. The manufacturer had a synthetic steroid in
this supplement and it definitely increased testosterone according to several
studies. Of course, it was just a matter of time before the FDA yanked it
off the shelves. Other supplements, including prohormones such as
Mark-McGwire-made-famous androstenedione, have suffered the same fate.
bottom line is that anything that is a significant testosterone booster will go
away and you are much better to rely on natural means. Plus, if you try
everything on this site to boost your testosterone naturally without success,
then the testosterone booster you should really try is your body's own
bioidentical hormone, i.e. Hormone Replacement Therapy, instead of some
synthetic annd untested steroid-like product added to a supplement.
Natural Testosterone Boosters: Winning and Competition
Researchers have found what us males have discovered instinctively:
winning and winning attitudes stimulate testosterone
(and dopamine) levels. Losing and losing attitudes are, in contrast, anything but a
natural testosterone booster. As you might expect, they actually depress
testosterone levels. The rush, the
high of competition effects everything if you are male. Like it or not, that’s part of what
life for us guys is all about. Long term non-competitiveness and losing in any area of our life is just not good for us. Sure, a few losses are good for the soul and build humility and all that. But don’t stay there. Feeling like a loser is hormonal death.
Numerous studies have shown just what I’m talking about:
- Testosterone levels rise shortly before competition.
- Testosterone levels of winners are higher than losers.
- Mood elevation must be present for winners to increase testosterone.
- For the winner to experience augmented T-levels, the win must matter to the winner and the winner must feel that he has played a role in the victory.
There's another key mental condition that can be a powerful natural testosterone
sexual anticipation. In another link I cover how Sex itself can
increase testosterone. But it turns out that just the anticipation of sex does
the same thing.
Let’s look at just one example of the effects of psychology on
testosterone: research has shown that there is a large difference in
testosterone levels between married and unmarried males. Who do you think has the higher average testosterone?
If you guessed unmarried, you’d be right. Married males have significantly lower
testosterone levels on average.
Of course, for those of us who believe in the merits of monogamy, this is
disturbing to say the least. But there is a subtlety here that escapes the
initial analysis: single life is a testosterone booster likely because of
than any, in general, huge disappointments with their wife or married life. Competition
is, after all, one of the keys to raising testosterone.
That is why, married or not, you must battle for your woman's heart. You
need competition. You need the anticipation of battle, romance and
you-know-what. O mighty T–warrior, you must, above all else, never give up.
Giving up is the surest way to lose the key to that natural testosterone booster
that I am presenting you with. Don’t get arrested or anything, but without
competition and a winning attitude, you'll be swimming upstream..
Does anticipation of sex really make a significant difference? And what kind of
numbers are we talking about? One study of Air Force vets found unmarried males with up to
20% higher average
testosterone readings than married males! If your testosterone is sitting at a marginal 360, that’s around
70 points. Ouch! And think of it going the other direction: getting your attitudes healthy and active regarding sex and romance can
could be a natural testosterone booster of up to 70+ points as well.
Another study found that men who had cheated or would consider cheating had
considerably higher testosterone levels. In fact, their testosterone
levels were as high as single males.  Of course, I'm not suggesting you cheat
as a testosterone booster. What good will it do you to jack up your
testosterone by 25% but have brain damage after a frying pan hits you in the
back of the skull? However, I am suggesting that you build your life around a
good, healthy dose of competitive endeavors, including those in your relationships.
I've concentrated on relationships above, but studies show that sports of all kinds are also
excellent and natural testosterone boosters. In fact, several studies have shown that
just the anticipation of a competitive sporting event (in which one participated
of course) significantly raises testosterone.  The same holds true
after matches, for winners.
 In fact, the studies show that winners boost their testosterone for
several hours after competition.
Does it have to be a sport with strenuous physical activity? The answer is
no: one study showed that chess can be a significant testosterone booster.  Again, the key
attribute of a legitimate psychological testosterone booster is not so much
activity but rather competing
and sometimes winning while you're at it.
CAUTION: Negative attitudes and mental states, such as
Stress, have been shown in studies to whack
I would go so far as to say that if you want to neuter yourself,
just wake up each morning with a “I’m a worm” attitude. For example, one 1999
study showed that depression
not only whacked nighttime and 24-hour testosterone levels but, just as bad,
raised cortisol by 68%!  (Cortisol and
depression will destroy your brain. For more information, read about these effects on the
So, again, for a completely natural testosterone booster, build as many of these ideas as you can into your life: winning, a
winning attitude, competition, sexual anticipation. Your mind - it's the ultimate
CAUTION: It generally takes at least a month before you can feel any change
in your testosterone levels. Remember: tissues, receptors and
neurotransmitters take a while to rebuild. Anything that you try to increase your
testosterone must be implemented for a minimum two month test period.
