The basic ingredients for testosterone are zinc, vitamin D, cholesterol, with selenium and magnesium being present as well. Research suggests that an amino acid called N acetyl cystein can be beneficial to increasing glutathione in the testes which makes for healthier teste function and increased testosterone. Sleep is critical. Excess alchohol or body fat do not compliment testosterone production Exercise in proper amounts has been shown over and over to raise T. Moderate amounts of porn and or masturbation are probably fine, but porn induced erectile dysfunction is real. Erectile dysfunction is not fun, it's crushing. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by many things aside from low T. Man up and see your doctor if all else fails. Garlic and vitamin C together have been helpful for me, for what it's worth.
--- Stress is often mentioned by CSS patients around the time of their diagnosis, and in a way this seems related to the adrenal glands as well. A patient in another support group reported reading in "The Stress of Life" by Dr. H. Seyle:.... "the adrenal glands are the processors of stress in our bodies. A person's stress resistance will vary with the competence of his adrenals. Continually stressing them, finally depletes them. When we become exhausted by life, on a mental or physical level, our adrenal glands often fail to keep up, and illness ensues".
When I make my dairy yogurt, while I heat most of the gallon of organic milk, I reserve maybe a pint in a separate jar (jelly jar or mason jar) and sprinkle a packet of unflavored gelatin over it and let it dissolve into that milk. (I also let the milk jug drain into that jar so I get the stubborn drops instead of washing them down the drain before I recycle. LOL) Once my milk reaches 180, I ladle a bit of the hot milk into the mason jar and shake it up to make sure I get any undissolved gelatin mixed in and then add it back into the pot of milk. Unless I mess up something else, my yogurt comes out pretty creamy; even my kids tell me they like the texture better than yogurt with commercial thickeners like guar gum. :-) Just another way to thicken, which I’ll also probably use for my coconut milk yogurt recipe.
