But just because you add a supplement doesn’t mean you’ll boost your T levels. The research shows zinc supplementation can increase serum testosterone levels, but only in individuals who are deficient. 13 Similarly, vitamin D is intimately involved in testosterone production, however blood levels above 40 ng/dl (150 nmol/L) are unlikely to provide any additional benefits. 14 To sum up micronutrients, they can help nudge your testosterone in the right direction , however they aren’t the “big rocks” like maintaining your ideal weight, getting adequate sleep, and keeping stress under control.
I’m 25 and I haven’t had my menstrual cycle in about 4 months. So I went to my doctor yesterday who did some labs and the only abnormality was my testosterone level which was low at a 28. I had no idea. I’ve been experiencing extreme fatigue, difficulty with weight loss, depression and no libido. Knock on wood I don’t also get the hair loss.
My doctor didn’t really say anything about it other then giving me a pill to try for 7 days to see if I get my menstrual cycle.
Should I be worried? What should I do?
Someone mentioned protein, does that help?
