A 12 month study looked at the vitamin D and testosterone levels of 2299 men. It found that men with vitamin D levels above 30 nmol/L had more testosterone and lower levels of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG binds to hormones so your cells can’t use them, and if you have too much of it, your testosterone levels drop . Men with vitamin D deficiency had lower testosterone and higher SHBG levels.

In another study, researchers looked at the connection between vitamin D and testosterone in 652 men with an average age of 57. They found that those with higher levels had higher vitamin D levels than those with lower levels of testosterone.
