The 10 Best Foods for Men #7
We can all agree that, enjoyed in moderation, almonds make a healthy snack, right? But did you know that men should eat almonds for testosterone production?
What’s the nutrient in almonds for testosterone production?
What’s in almonds that’s going to put lead in your pencil? Well, you see these nutrient-packed tree nuts contain an amino acid, argenine, which helps relax blood vessels and promote healthy circulation. (Without good circulation, you can’t have a healthy sex life.) Learn more about arginine on Web MD.
The nuts are also a source of vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium, all of which are essential for testosterone production. If raw or roasted almonds aren’t your cup of tea, consider almond butters or almond milk.
And don’t forget the B6
But that’s not all! A mere handful of almonds will deliver vitamin B6 and a nice dose of energy with only a small amount of monounsaturated fats. The B6 will help send signals to your brain, lower cholesterol, and aid in the production of insulin, niacin–which will help send more energy to your cells, hemoglobin and antibodies.
