Scientists at the Canadian University of Moncton have discovered that fruits and vegetables rich in polyphenolic compounds prevent hypogonadism (a syndrome in which the testicles function poorly and the level of testosterone decreases).

The journal Nutrients notes that androgens (male sex hormones, including testosterone) are produced mainly by Leydig-cells in the testes. These hormones are responsible for developing male secondary sexual characteristics, stimulating muscle protein synthesis, accelerating the formation of red blood cells, increasing the rate of metabolic processes and enhancing spermatogenesis.

According to scientists, after 30 years, testosterone production in the male body decreases by about 1 percent per year. Which can lead to hypogonadism, a syndrome characterized by decreased libido, muscle mass, and bone density.

To identify dietary changes that could prevent the development of hypogonadism, researchers conducted a scientific review of previously published scientific articles on the effect of natural antioxidants on men's health. They discovered that plant products rich in polyphenolic compounds, such as flavonoids, isoflavones, flavonols, flavanones, catechins, resveratrol, gigantol, anthocyanidins, and hydroxycinnamic acid (ferulic acid), can increase androgen production.

According to researchers, these substances are found in high levels in celery, thyme, parsley, legumes, apples, green tea, grapefruit, grapes, tomatoes, and others. These products can stimulate androgen production by activating certain genes in Leydig cells and prevent low testosterone levels due to endocrine disruption.
