How Women Can Naturally Increase Their Testosterone Levels

As women grow older it is natural for their testosterone levels to fall leading too not just a decreased sex drive, but loss of muscle tone and quality as well. Bones may become brittle and muscles seem to sag. There are many chemical methods for increasing testosterone levels like use of steroids, testosterone patches and even HGH, but like with many hormones, it is better for your body to be able to produce it on its own than to start to taking medication to get better levels. Here are some ways that women can increase testosterone, naturally:

1.       Eat more protein. Many sources quote red meat as unhealthy, but people who eliminate it completely from their diet will miss out on an easy and rich source of protein. A little red meat every day will help you keep your testosterone levels up. Chicken, fish and even tofu will help, but not as much as red meat does. If you are worried about problems that are caused by eating red meat, get good quality red meat and supplement it with enough vegetables.

2.      Natural ginseng is a rich source for increasing testosterone levels. It works by stimulating your hypothalamus to make sure that all hormone production is at its optimum. Of course it’s also great for brain function.

3.      Good fats will boost testosterone in women. Olive oil, nut fat, ghee and any other kinds of healthy fat in your diet are essential as you grow older.

4.      Reduce alcohol consumption. Alcohol works to destabilize hormone production, so cut back on those types of beverages and you will see an improvement in testosterone levels.

5.      Having sex at least once a week works both ways for men and women. During sex, the hormones that control our sex drives are released in greater quantity because of stimulation, so use this natural method and you will see a change.

Lastly, if you have tried these tips and you still feel like you’re not able to boost testosterone levels, you should speak with your health care professional to rule out the possibility of an undetected illness.
