Simply blend and serve:

  • 1 teaspoon honey (1 teaspoon is approx. 5g)
  • 1 teaspoon lecithin powder

  • 1 teaspoon wheat germ (oil or powder)

Nuts, seeds and pulses contain plant chemicals called phytosterols, which are known to promote testosterone production.  Nuts also contain magnesium, which balances levels of the hormone prolactin, which can compete with testosterone.  

Almonds are regarded as one of the most nutrient rich nuts, high in nutrients known to be beneficial to reproductive health including zinc and L-arginine.  Linseeds are a good source of omega 3 oils and sunflower seeds are also considered to be one of the most nutrient rich seeds.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Until next time
