Nuts and Testosterone: Do Not Eat These Nuts...

Hey guys welcome to the channel this is Chris from anabolic men.com where we bring you a hundred percent research back to men's health advice now today we're on the subject of nuts the food nuts we get a lot of questions actually asking whether nuts are healthy or not and whether you should be eating nuts the answer is it depends basically so they're actually a lot of great benefits to a lot of nuts nuts on a micronutrient level are usually typically dense in certain micronutrients and not all of them are the same obviously there's tons of different nuts you could eat but they do contain a lot of good things and they also contain amino acids and a lot of vegetarians and vegans like to use nuts for protein so while we don't disagree on these levels nuts can have a lot of benefits there we want to actually focus on the fat profiles of nuts in terms of influencing your hormonal health because at a certain point you know you can get your your minerals your micronutrients your amino acids from other things you don't need to get them from nuts so at that level you need to look at the types of fats that are in certain nuts there are some nuts that are good for supporting testosterone and then there are some that are not good so today in this video we're going to break down which are good and which are not alright now you might be wondering why some nuts are not as good as others here's why for an unknown reason some nuts at least almonds and walnuts have been found to increase shbg levels by between 10 and 20 percent since shbg binds to free testosterone and DHT rendering them inactive this would mean that nuts may reduce androgen bioavailability many types of nuts are incredibly high in polyunsaturated fats an increased intake of polyunsaturated fats has been well proven to lower testosterone levels via increased oxidative damage and storage tissues most nuts are dense in phytosterols and some consider this a benefit since phytosterols compete with the bodily cholesterol and reduce its levels but the thing is that all of our natural steroids are actually made from cholesterol and a high intake of phytosterols has been proven to interfere with this now does this mean that all nuts are to be banned from diet not necessarily let's break down a list of what are the good nuts and what are the nuts that you should avoid first up the nuts that can beneficially impact your testosterone levels macadamia nuts are very high in testosterone boosting monounsaturated fats and contain only about 2% polyunsaturated fatty acids Brazil nuts are another good option they're high in protest Ostrow micronutrients like zinc boron selenium magnesium and they're not overly high in polyunsaturated fats Tiger nuts at least in rodents Tiger nuts have been shown to dose-dependent Lee increased testosterone levels and the mechanism for that is actually unknown another good option is horse chestnuts which contain essen which can significantly improve the blood flow to your testicles and reduce the rate of varicocele and raise testosterone levels now here are some nuts that we recommend avoiding because they can negatively impact your testosterone levels first up pistachios now one study shows how our diet rich in pistachios actually reduced testosterone levels in men likely due to the high fight of steroid content another one is walnuts which are very high in polyunsaturated fatty acids that have been shown to increase SHBG levels rendering some free testosterone inactive also almonds which are relatively high in polyunsaturated fatty acids and likewise have been shown to raise shbg and thus should lower free testosterone and last but not least peanuts which aren't actually nuts they're legumes but they're fairly high in polyunsaturated fats they're very high in beta sister'll which has been shown to lower the 5 alpha reductase enzyme and DHT levels now some nuts you know are favourable as you can see from that and some nuts are not in general just to say you know don't eat nuts would be irresponsible and ill-informed but we wanted to give you guys kind of a breakdown of which nuts you should be focusing on which ones you should probably avoid and the benefit is the ones that you should be focusing on are actually pretty tasty like Brazil nuts and macadamia nuts actually tastes awesome and they're very good options so hopefully you learned something from this hopefully it helped with some good advice and if you like this video give it a thumbs up if you want to see more videos like this subscribe to our Channel and I'll see you in the next video [Music] Oh
