Olli Savijarvi is a proud biohacker who has always had a fondness for how the body works and how to improve its performance. He promotes the kind of lifestyle geared towards longevity through healthy living and safe supplementation and he’s always looking for a way to share his ideas out into the world.

Today, Olli tells us how to boost testosterone effectively and naturally as well as a few lifestyle tips on how to tinker with your body’s natural processes without using any form of exogenous supplementation.


"Everybody would agree sleep is the most important thing in our health especially homone-wise.” Dr. Olli Sovijarvi


In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Testosterone is an important hormone for both men and women. It’s responsible for hair growth, growth of sex organs, and even the tone of our voice.
  • Being sleep deprived leads to lower testosterone production.
  • Testosterone is an anti-aging hormone so a high testosterone is something to be considered for people past their 50’s or 70’s.
  • Stress reduces testosterone production and leads to excess estrogen in the body.
  • Men who are chronically stressed have "man-boobs" due to high estrogen.
  • It's much more complicated for women to regulate hormonal balance.
  • Chronic cardio is bad for testosterone production and strength training is much, much better.
  • Carbs are good for testosterone production.


Key Takeaways:

  • A dietary template, regardless of what diet it is, won’t work for everyone.
  • Whole foods or foods that are nutrient dense are the basics. Even without a diet template, these foods make you hormonally optimal.
