Pomegranate Boosts Testosterone Levels

1564The pomegranate is a powerful fruit that has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. It contains high levels of iron, antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E. Studies have shown that one glass of pomegranate juice a day can raise testosterone levels between 16-30%. This is especially good news for health-conscious middle-aged men, who tend to lose muscle mass as their testosterone levels drop with age.*

Fresh pomegranates are best, but where they are not in season or easily available, bottled pomegranate juice can be a healthy alternative. Just look for a label that promotes “100% Pomegranate Juice,” and does not contain “malic acid” or “citric acid,” which are commonly added to bottled juices.
