Lately, I have been getting my sun on during my lunch breaks and this summer weather in California. When it's over 90 degrees, I am out by the pool or the beach, depending on how much free time I have.
It makes a big difference to my mood, energy levels, and more... and a lot of it I contribute to Vitamin D.
Vitamin D deficiency is one of the more common nutrient deficiencies that occurs worldwide for every one. For men, however, Vitamin D is even more important when it comes to optimizing your testosterone levels.
In this post, we are going to explore Vitamin D and its connection to testosterone levels.
Let's dive in!
Vitamin D is an important micronutrient that aids in a variety of things: from immune health, bone health, wellbeing, and a plethora of other things. We get Vitamin D primarily from sunlight exposure or supplementation, but you can also get it from foods like salmon and egg yolks.
When it comes to testosterone production, men who get more Vitamin D typically have healthier testosterone levels. This was shown in a 2010 study where men with healthy levels of Vitamin D had higher testosterone levels. In addition, the participants in the study had peak levels of testosterone AND Vitamin D when sunlight was most prominent.
This means that you should try to get some daily sunlight exposure.
If you don't happen to get sunlight on some days due to time constraints or weather, consider keeping some Vitamin D supplements handy. It may help just as much as sunlight exposure can. In a 2011 study, men were either given Vitamin D or a placebo. The ones who supplemented with Vitamin D saw an increase in total and free testosterone.
Getting enough Vitamin D will help you optimize or improve your testosterone levels. Here are some tips you can utilize to get an adequate amount of Vitamin D:

A few weeks ago, my buddy Grant and I talked about nutrition.
We talked about how he's lost over 120 pounds so far with the weight loss progress he's been making.
