Testosterone is a hormone produced in the male testes. During a boy's pubescent years (ages 9 to 14), there is an increase in production that leads to male secondary sexual characteristics such as a deeper voice, more muscle mass, facial hair growth and enlargement of the Adam's apple (among others). Some teenage boys experience these puberty changes at later ages than others. The timing of puberty is often genetically determined (through heredity), but other factors can play a role in delaying it, such as poor nutrition, physical trauma and certain diseases. Stimulating testosterone production naturally is possible in teen boys, although in rare cases hormone therapy may be needed to trigger and complete puberty.
Food for more testosterone
Nutrients work hand in hand with hormones like testosterone to build muscle. But if you've been following the traditional, outdated advice for losing weight—cut calories, reduce dietary fat, and watch your intake of red meat and eggs—you are missing out on those critical nutrients that build T levels and foster "anabolism," or muscle growth. If you want to lose 20 pounds of fat, build major muscle, and boost your testosterone, pair your workouts with these food rules from sports nutritionist Tara Gidus, ., team dietitian for the NBA's Orlando Magic.
