      These foods can kill your testosterone

      Testosterone is an important sex hormone for Men and regulates the libido. Besides, this, testosterone plays a big role in building bone mass, strength, distributing fat, muscle mass, red blood cells and sperm. There are certain foods that can pull-down levels of testosterone, here’s a look.

      Dairy products

      Some of the cow's milk available may have synthetic or natural hormones that can reduce testosterone levels. If you want to keep your testosterone levels high, replace dairy products such as milk with nut milk.

      Soy

      Soy is rich in “phytoestrogenic isoflavones,” that imitate estrogen activity in the body. Estrogen is the opposite of testosterone in the body. Therefore, it’s best to stay away from any kind of soy.

      Processed foods

      Processed foods are high in transfats that are bad not just for your testosterone levels but for overall health. Research done in both humans and animals show that these are linked to a drop in testosterone levels and reproductive performance.

      Alcohol

      While a small quantity of alcohol increases testosterone levels in men, this does not mean that one assumes that it helps. A study that appeared in the Current Drug Abuse Review stated that heavy drinking or regular drinking spread over long periods was linked to reduced testosterone in males.

      Mint

      This is one herb that you probably never expected to make it to this list. Mint and spearmint may be great for making calming teas, but they can hit your testosterone levels.

      Licorice

      You probably never expected this on the list either, but licorice can make testosterone levels fall. The culprit is a compound called glycyrrhizic acid. This gives licorice its taste but is also so dangerous that it blocks testosterone production.

      Flaxseed

      Flaxseed is now being touted as a superfood as it is high in Omega 3 but it must be avoided by men as it can bring down testosterone levels.
