Does Broccoli Increase Testosterone?

If there is one food that could save your manhood, it may very well be broccoli.

Broccoli is one of the top foods for boosting your “free testosterone”.

Loaded with a compound called indole-3-carbinol, or I3C for short, broccoli helps your body flush out estrogen – the female hormone that attaches itself to your testosterone molecules, rendering it unusable.

It’s why some men with normal overall testosterone levels still complain of feeling tired, old and sexually impotent…

While others with below average testosterone can still be virile and stay productive in their day to day lives.

It all comes down to the “free testosterone” you have to work with.

When your levels of useable testosterone or “free testosterone,” is in a healthy range, your muscles repair and rebuild quickly, you feel energized all day and night, and your sexual function is at peak performance.

This is where Indole-3- carbinol in broccoli is useful.

By removing and lowering your estrogen levels, daily consumption of broccoli can help your free testosterone rise.

How effective is indole-3-carbinol at reducing estrogen?

According to a study conducted by New York’s Rockefeller University Hospital and The Institute for Hormone Research, men who took a daily supplement with high concentrated dosages of indole-3-carbinol daily decreased estrogen in their urine by as much as 45%!

Not only that…

Broccoli is also packed with DIM

DIM is short for diindolylmethane.

It’s a naturally occurring plant compound, found commonly in cruciferous vegetables.

DIM further helps the body to metabolize estrogen better – breaking down estrogen into safer compounds, clearing away the potential damaging hormone.

One study conducted in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley examined the urine of patients taking DIM versus those not taking the supplement.

The count of estrogen metabolites in the urine of those taking DIM was significantly higher than the control group.

In other words, this study shows that DIM helps the body to break down estrogen.
