Get your claret flow­ing

Men's Fitness - - Updates -

A glass of red wine with din­ner might get you in the mood for some bed­room ath­let­ics as well as im­prov­ing your ath­letic abil­ity the next day, be­cause it boosts your lev­els of the pri­mary male sex hor­mone testos­terone. A com­pound in claret called quercetin blocks the ac­tion of an en­zyme that looks for testos­terone and then mes­sages the kid­neys to ex­crete it, keep­ing lev­els higher, ac­cord­ing to a study in the jour­nal Nu­tri­tion. Don’t overdo it though.
