Boron sources include raisins, almonds, hazelnuts and dried apricots – although you’d have to eat a lot of these foods every day to boost testosterone.
A study by Naghii et al  shows that men who took 10mg of Boron for one week saw their testosterone rise by 28%. Meanwhile, their estrogen levels fell by 39%.
The same study showed the mineral allows your body to absorb more Vitamin D and other steroid hormones. The result? Your testosterone levels rise even higher, you feel stronger and become more assertive than ever before.
Boron also helps keep your bones healthy, relieves arthritis  and enhances brain function . For these reasons, boron is a key ingredient for helping you stay sharp in body and mind. What's more, Hunter Test uses Boron chelate, which is the most potent form of the mineral.

Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) is a compound found in broccoli, cauliflower, and other members of the Brassica family.
In fact, I3C is the active ingredient that gives many leafy green vegetables their cancer-fighting power .
But the compound also inhibits the sex-hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) to prevent your body from producing too much estrogen . This helps you maintain healthy levels of testosterone.
As a result, I3C also enhances your drive, power and confidence.
Why can’t I get enough I3C from my diet?
Because you’d have to eat a lot of green vegetables to significantly boost your testosterone.
Even if you like your greens, it may be tough to get your fill every day. Hunter Test is on hand to top up your I3C levels and keep your hormones in check.
Why I3C makes Hunter Test a different beast
The latest research shows I3C is a powerful estrogen blocker. This stops the body from turning excess testosterone into the female hormone, which in turn lowers fatigue and prevents fat buildup.
Despite I3C’s power, very few testosterone boosters use it. Some use diindolylmethane (DIM), which derives from I3C. But the available research uses I3C as a test compound, not DIM.
So while there’s plenty of evidence showing I3C boosts testosterone, there’s not enough to warrant the use of DIM in other products.
This is just another example of the way in which Hunter Test uses ONLY well-researched ingredients.

Experts estimate 17.3% of the world’s population are zinc-deficient .
Why does this matter?
Research shows strong links between the levels of zinc in the body and testosterone. And your brain uses the mineral to create more of the Luteinizing Hormone , a major precursor to testosterone.
As a result, zinc deficiency can sink your testosterone. By ensuring you get enough zinc, you can restore your testosterone to normal, healthy levels . Zinc also boosts fertility in men with low free testosterone .
