Studies rarely differential between synthetic vitamins and natural forms of them. It is important to note that vitamins, minerals, etc often work synergistically with each other. FCLO and Butter oil work together hypothetically because of the vitamin A, D, K2, DHA, EPA, Selenium, together and the ratios of them. The vitamin D in FCLO is NOT the same as synthetic vitamin D in other fish oils, it is a natural source of vitamin D.thwg wrote:I found a link that some research has been done in relation to selenium and testosterone levels:
This would imply that because Tim was eating brazil nuts, the testosterone increase could have been due to that. The article also claims that NAC will help raise testosterone and a combination of the two will raise it even more. It sounds like cod liver oil and butter are good for general health, but the elevated testosterone could have been unrelated.
This page goes in depth on several different micro nutrients with relation to male fertility (I assume that correlates with testosterone levels):

Doesn't even mention Vitamin A or D, but does note selenium.
