Black Tea and Testosterone
Black tea does contain caffeine and there is evidence from one study performed on rats to suggest that caffeine may actually help to increase levels of testosterone in men. Caffeine has also been tied directly to increases in libido.
Additionally, fluoride is present in black tea and when too much accumulates in the brain, it causes cell death. This can also work against the body and worsen the impact of other chemicals in the body and lead to such conditions as dementia and Alzheimer’s.
When Black Tea is consumed, it breaks down in the body and begins a fermentation process that converts the chemicals in the tea to other, less effective chemicals within the body.
These less effective chemicals work against testosterone levels and can in fact, actually lower the levels within the body. When Black Tea is consumed on a regular basis, men will find that although they may be reaping a few benefits from Black Tea, they are in fact lowering their testosterone to levels that will be counterproductive to their libido and their health.
While Black Tea may be a delicious beverage, it’s not helpful for testosterone production or cognitive function.
Not that the occasional mug of hot Black Tea is all bad, however, it must, as all things, be drank in moderation and it’s important to keep in mind the impact it will have upon t levels.
In conclusion, if you are serious about increasing you t levels that it may be best to lay off the black tea. However, an occasional cup every now and then is completely fine. I for one continue to drink a cup every second day and my testosterone levels are completely healthy.
