Food Therapy: Garlic - The Testosterone Booster Whole Food Medicine?

Kyle J. Norton, Master of Nutrients


Whole food(herbal medicine), linking health benefits in the prevention, management, and treatment of diseases has placed an important role in human history over many centuries. The finding of whole food medication by renowned scientists all over the world to replace the single ingredient of Western medicine with little or no side effect has been difficult due to no commercial benefit and patent right to producers.

Garlic (Allium sativum) is a species in the onion genus, belonging to family Amaryllidaceae, native to central Asia. It has been used popularly in traditional and Chinese medicine in treating common cold and flu to the Plague, blood pressure, cholesterol, natural antibiotic, etc.

Garlic may be the next generation of natural testosterone reducer or inducer?  High level of testosterone may alter the balance between ROS production and antioxidant defenses of that induce testicular antioxidants and free radicals, including glutathione (GSH), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and catalase (CAT) and ameliorate the reduction in testosterone levels.

Dr. Prasad S lead research at the Industrial Toxicology Research Centre, diallyl sulfide (DAS), a constituent of garlic, exerted antioxidant activities against testosterone-induced oxidative stress in male Swiss albino mice, by significantly restored the testosterone-induced antioxidant enzymes and lipid peroxidation.

The effects of garlic supplementation on protein metabolism also suggested that dietary supplementation with 0.8 g/100 g garlic alters hormones associated with protein anabolism by increasing testicular testosterone and decreasing plasma corticosterone in rats fed a high protein diet. 

Over production of testosterone may associate to increase the risk of prostate cancer, caused by an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants.

According to the Tunis El Manar University, intake of garlic impacted on the male reproductive system by the increased number of tubules deprived of spermatozoa. In addition, garlic fractions induced apoptosis of testicular gem cells.

In fact, like all natural phytochemicals, garlic is both testosterone booster and testosterone reducer, depending on the levels of testosterone in the body and amount of garlic intake.

Conflicting results have been found between total testosterone and subsequent prostate cancer, probably due to conflicted study designs, definitions, and methodologies. Therefore, the use of garlic in increasing sexual desire should be taken with care.
