Probably one of the simplest ways to increase natural testosterone production, is just to correct all of your underlying vitamin and mineral deficiencies. That is, since you can often do it effortlessly with a proper diet and a multivitamin supplement.

Depending on the state of your current micronutrient balance, it’s not uncommon to double or even triple your testosterone levels by just correcting micronutrient deficiencies and adding in a good multivitamin for testosterone. No joke, I have seen it happen with dozens of AM readers who have emailed me their natural T optimization progress along this past year or so.

You’d think that with the current obesity epidemic, any average Joe’s vitamin and mineral reserves should be easily topped-up, since we’re cramming foods to our mouths more than ever before…

…still, large portions of the US population are deficient in multiple key micronutrients:

  • vitamin A (35%)
  • vitamin C (31%)
  • vitamin E (67%)
  • vitamin D (74%)
  • vitamin K (67%)
  • choline (92%)
  • potassium (100%)
  • calcium (39%)
  • magnesium (46%)

Since the state of our Average Joe’s micronutrient balance is downright scary, today’s article will be devoted to one simple thing. Correcting your vitamin and mineral deficiencies, since it’s likely that you do have some…

I’m talking about foods like: eggs, grass-fed meats, pomegranates, berries, avocados… A proper ‘whole food-based diet’ alone covers the intake of many key micronutrients…

…However, speaking from experience, even that is not always enough. To support your diet, I would advise that you also supplement with a multivitamin for testosterone.

(the one I am using currently is Thorne Research Basic Nutrients (affiliate link), which is the most complete and high-quality multi I’ve found so far).

Conclusion on a Multivitamin for Testosterone

The above is just a short list of scientific examples of vitamins for testosterone and why you don’t want to be deficient in any of these key vitamins and minerals.

Eat a diet rich in whole foods and always consume foods from all the macronutrient groups (fats, carbs, protein), this alone provides you with many of the essential micronutrients for T production, and also makes sure that your body can absorb them efficiently (for example, fat-soluble vitamins can’t properly absorb if you’re eating a low-fat diet, etc).

To support your diet, add in a multivitamin (affiliate link) for testosterone and perhaps some other vitamin and mineral supplements (though multi is the way to go and definitely enough if you’re low on cash).
