There are also certain other foods that can cause your scrotum to shrink.
But just before we get to that, I have an important message for you:
Your testicles can’t make sperm without vitamin A
That’s how important this nutrient is to a man.
And this creates a big problem…
Because I can almost guarantee you that you’re not getting enough A in your diet.
And your testicles are paying the ultimate price for this.
And if you think your multi-vitamin is covering you…
Because supplements just don’t cut it.
Here’s something you should know…
Your grandfather got a LOT of vitamin A in his diet.
Because he ate foods like liver, butter and whole milk.
Every single day of the week.
And don’t forget…
There were no Flintstones Vitamins that tasted like candy back in his day.
His vitamins came in the form of pure cod liver oil.
A real food….
Packed with more than one thousand international units of vitamin A in every teaspoon.
But how does all this stack up from a nutritional standpoint?
How much vitamin A was grandpa actually getting?
Let’s take a look at 3 common foods eaten back in his day and find out…
- Whole milk: 395 IU’s
- Beef liver: 50,000 IU’s
- Cod liver oil: 1000 IU’s
Total: 51,395 IU’s
And this is only one serving of each food.
Stack a few more servings on top of this and those numbers will come in even higher.
No wonder his testicles were producing twice as much sperm as yours are today.
Compared to him you’re almost malnourished.
Need more proof? Then let me ask you this…
Do any of these foods sound familiar?
- Grilled chicken breast: Vitamin A content – 0%
- Steamed white or brown rice: Vitamin A content – 0%
- Cauliflower sautéed in olive oil: Vitamin A content – 0%
- Our Modern Day Diet: 0
- Grandpa’s Old School Diet: 51,395
Have I exaggerated a little bit here?
Sure I have.
Am I way off the mark? Nope.
Now, you may be saying to yourself….
Wait a minute buddy. I eat carrots. Salad is my best friend….
So I get Plenty of vitamin A.
And my answer to you is, no you don’t.
Because you only get pro-vitamin A from plants. Not the real stuff.
Because plants don’t contain any real vitamin A.
To get this A you have to convert the carotenoids in plants into retinoic acid.
And this is a complicated process because carotenoids are water soluble.
But vitamin A is fat soluble.
Animals that eat plants in nature are really good at this conversion.
Because they have several stomachs. Intricate digestive systems…
And pounds of intestinal bacteria that help them digest cellulose.
So they’re experts at converting carotenoids into vitamin A .
But us humans with our single stomachs and simple digestive systems, are not.
And some of us are downright horrible at it. As in next to nothing.
So what’s the solution here?
How do we get more of this pure vitamin A back into the meal plan without eating liver for lunch every day?
Here are a few suggestions:
- Consume cod liver oil
- Eat eggs, with the yolk intact.
- Use grass-fed butter instead of margarine or vegetable oil.
And for those who still insist on getting A from plants…
Eat those plants with plenty of fat.
Because your body needs this fat to convert the cartinoids into usable vitamin A.
If you’ve been a hardcore vegetarian for a while – you’re better than most at this conversion process…
Because your body has very likely adapted.
But for all the rest – pass the butter!
Your testicles will thank you for it. Your sperm quality and quantity will also be pleasantly increased.

Update – What Should I Eat to Increase Testicle Size?
I know you really want to know which foods increase testicle size – and I’ll tell you. But first, let me explain a little bit of the science.
The size of your balls is closely related to how much testosterone is produced inside your body.
Those sources are just a few pieces of the large body of scientific research into testosterone.
Whether it’s a study on ducks, bulls, or humans, the conclusion is always the same – testosterone and testicle size are directly linked.
Now, what that means is you can effectively increase the size of your balls by increasing your T levels.
How do you increase testosterone naturally? Glad you asked.
This is where a good diet can really reap rewards. There are tons of foods out there that contain vitamins and minerals proven to increase T levels.
1. Vitamin E
I know – vitamin E isn’t a food.
It’s actually a blanket term for group of compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. These substances are found in a wide range of common foods.
The science is there when it comes to vitamin E.
Why does that matter? That oxidative damage increases levels of the stress hormone cortisol which is directly linked to lower T levels.
In a study done by Umeda et al. a form of tocopherol was given to both humans and rats. Results showed that testosterone levels rose across the board. (source)
Here are a few common foods high in vitamin E:
- Egg yolks
There’s plenty of science to back up the fact that magnesium can increase you testosterone levels.
In one study, subjects were given 10 mg/kg of a magnesium supplement – the result was a 24% increase in free-T levels. (source)
In another study, researchers reviewed hundreds of magnesium studies and came to a clear conclusion: magnesium has a positive effect on testosterone levels in men. (source)
These foods are overall very healthy and high in magnesium:
- Black Beans
- Pumpkin Seeds
Last on this list but certainly not least, zinc has been proven time and again to be one of the best minerals to keep male hormone production at healthy levels.
In a study from 2007, average men were given zinc over 4 weeks.
Results showed their total and free testosterone levels were higher after the 4 weeks were up compared to their T levels before taking zinc. (source)
The same results were found in a very similar study done on elite athletes. (source)
Here are a few foods high in zinc:
- Pumpkin Seeds
Did you notice a few foods came up multiple times in these lists?
I’m talking about avocados, spinach, quinoa, and pumpkin seeds.
These are my top foods to increase testosterone and testicle size. Add them into your diet and you’ll see some benefits in no time.
