Guest Post: How to Craft your Own Multivitamin from Some Simple Everyday Foods
This is the second guest post in Anabolicmen.com’s history, and its from a long-time site reader who will be opening his own men’s health blog soon. Enjoy!
A great solution is to supplement with a good non-synthetic multivitamin, such as Shilajit, a rocky substance collected from rocks of Himalayan mountains. This awesome substance provides 85 ionic minerals, with some fulvic acid which enhances absorption. Shilajit is undeniably the best natural multivitamin that you can have, but if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, this post gets you covered…
How to Make your Own Multivitamin
Certain foods provide necessary vitamins and minerals for T production even when taking in miniscule amounts, for example, 4 or 5 brazil nuts can give you 100-150% of RDA for selenium.
we can use those food for our own advantage and create what I like to call “MVM” (Multi Vitamin Meal)…
Here’s how my MVM looks like:
- 4 Brazil nuts
- 100 grams of Broccoli or Kale
- 150 grams of pumpkin seeds
- 10 scrambled eggs
- 2 or 3 potatoes
- 100 grams of Sauerkraut
100 grams of Brazil nuts contains 1917 mcg’s of selenium, which is 2739% of the RDA%!4-5 of them will get you all you need for the day.
Broccoli or Kale
Broccoli and Kale are very high in vitamin C. 100 grams of Broccoli will give you about 150% of RDA of vitamin C.
Broccoli leaves are also extremely high in vitamin A, 100 grams of them will give you 325% of RDA .
Both Kale and Broccoli contain a compound called DIM which helps your body remove estrogen from your body.
Vitamin C protects testosterone molecules exceptionally well from oxidative damage during the times of stress (more about Vitamin C and Testosterone).
Pumpkin seeds are a very good source of Zinc and Magnesium, essential minerals for production of testosterone. 150 grams of pumpkin seeds will give you 200% RDA of magnesium and about 100% of Zinc.
1 scrambled egg contains 11% RDA of vitamin D and 8% RDA of vitamin B12. 10 of them will cover all your needs for both D and B12.
Eggs have other T-boosting compounds, you can read about them here.
1 medium sized potato will give you 30%RDA of vitamin B6, 3 of them will give you all you need.
Potatoes are also the richest dietary source of potassium, which is linked to increased testosterone production. To learn more about potatoes and testosterone read this.
Sauerkraut or fermented cabbage is a great source of vitamin K2, an important vitamin for Testosterone production.
Here you have it, your own cheap delicious multivitamin.
