Black Beans are another good selection if you’re looking to spice up testosterone without going too overboard on your fat intake.
At 230 calories, 15 grams of protein, 15 grams of dietary fiber, and fewer than a gram of fat, it’s clear Black Beans fit the bill.
Add 30% of the recommended daily allowance of Magnesium and 13% of the RDA for Zinc, and this popular food choice starts looking even better, testosterone-wise.
Magnesium increases the quantity of free testosterone in your system by interfering with the steroid hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) that tries to dam its availability.
If allowed, SHBG will bind itself to testosterone, making it essentially useless, but when there’s sufficient Magnesium around, testosterone will preferentially bind itself thereto instead, allowing it to stay available to be used.
