The Proven Link Between Vitamin D And Testosterone Production
For quite a few years, the link between increased levels of Vitamin D and testosterone production has been thought to be quite crucial to body builders, but it is only recently that clinical studies have confirmed this fact – the NSCA in the USA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) have released a brief but informative video that is definitely worth a look :

How Much Vitamin D Does My Body Need
It is suggested that a minimum daily dose of Vitamin D is 400 iu(International Units). This is required to help maintain our general health and keep our bones strong.
The problem is that many people do not live in countries where they are guaranteed sufficient exposure to the sun to maintain healthy levels of Vitamin D.
Even when we do get sunshine, what do we do?? apply lots of sunscreen (which is sensible of course) but this restricts the amount of Vitamin D actually getting into our skin.
Vitamin D And Testosterone Production
The proven link between Vitamin D and Testosterone production has only recently filtered through to body builders, with the majority of us not getting enough of this essential vitamin naturally, and with it not really being readily available in our diet in any great quantities, more and more gym goers are adding it to their daily supplementation.
Where To Find Vitamin D In Testosterone Boosting Supplements.
Vitamin D is now appearing in many testosterone boosting supplements, one product that has been hitting the headlines recently is Testo Fuel, this natural based testosterone boosting supplement provides a massive daily dose of 1000 iu – nearly three times the minimum recommended dose.
