Can you handle the heat? A recent study from France found men who have a taste for spicy foods tend to have higher testosterone levels than those who can’t handle the heat. Of the 114 male participants surveyed, researchers noticed a clear correlation between frequent hot-sauce usage and higher testosterone levels. Researchers suggest the findings may be due in part to capsaicin—the fiery compound in chili pepper that previous studies have associated with increased testosterone levels. In animal studies, capsaicin has also shown to increase the size of sex organs, while simultaneously decreasing belly fat!
TEST BOOSTING TIP : Make it hot! Fresh chilis contain the most capsaicin. Tabasco or your favorate hot sauce are also good options. The hotter the sauce (or pepper), the more Testosterone boosting compounds.
