Where do you find good walnuts ? They are my all time favourite nuts (no giggity) but the local bulk barn charges an arm and a leg for them and they are usually grossRaw Walnuts are my night time snack. I used to best crackers and cheese but didn’t like how I felt the next day. Add, walnuts are known as a healthy food/nut is a bonus.
I'd recommend probably an organic/vegan type grocery store like GoodnessMe (GTA).Where do you find good walnuts ? They are my all time favourite nuts (no giggity) but the local bulk barn charges an arm and a leg for them and they are usually gross
Yeah, I remember when the crossfit Paleotards I know collectively bought in to the "calories don't matter" line that Paleo gurus were pitching, and how shocked they were that unlimited amounts of nuts and coconut butter and made them all soft and paunchy no matter how much they were working out.love them but too calorie dense ...would eat too much
I used to eat vegan cheese on crackers at bedtime, now I eat cashews because they contain zink which I heard is good when your test levels are on the lower side.Raw Walnuts are my night time snack.

In my opinion... reducing alcohol, hard training, and a regular sleep pattern have proven to positively affect testosterone levels.Hey @king56 - I don’t really subscribe to zinc, tribulus and others being test boosters. I know they do but I am yet to find anything that will increase to a reasonable % and on an ongoing basis.
I tried them all in my younger days.
I find test increases my test - not much else.
If you read any of my posts I believe in naturopathic medicine and am open minded so this is as much a statement as a question - is there any test booster worth a shit out there outside test.
You pretty much came to the same conclusion I came to. When I want more test, I inject testosterone. That’s the only thing I found that worked. The supplement companies spend more money advertising and the beautiful bottles than the product, maybe I’m exaggerating but the point is valid. There are great supplements to protect your organs and help your health but none for test boosters as far as I’m concerned. If they worked - they would all be banned.In my opinion... reducing alcohol, hard training, and a regular sleep pattern have proven to positively affect testosterone levels.
Have bloods drawn after a sleep deprived weekend binge and you will notice how much they can be adversely affected.
Zinc, trib, arginine, zma... for every study that shows any minor positive effect there is one showing zero benefit.
Realistically for what you pay ... no, nothing worth noting.
At times we have all fallen into the supplement business hype. Those that feel zinc, arginine, etc are significantly improving their test levels are likely falling into the category of following the ad campaigns of supplements industries rather then scientific studies.
Can zinc really improve testosterone levels? Perhaps a supplement containing 100 % RDA, but is anyone who follows a decent diet really zinc deficient ?
For the cost some blindly put into the supplement industry, my opinion on test boosters having a significant effect on test levels is a resounding no.
When going through low testosterone bloodwork results, I tried every supplement on the market to improve numbers. Zero results. I was ultimately put on trt.
Do research and ignore supplement industry claims is my best advice and save your money on more,proven supplements then test boosters.
