I have read in various places that both dark chocolate (high cocoa %) and olive oil naturally help to elevate testosterone levels.

Is this true, how strong is the effect and what other foods have the same effect?

Do any foods have the opposite effect?

The common factor in both these foods is monounsaturated fats. These fats are reported to increase T-levels as do Omega 3 and saturated fats. I don't know how good the research is on the subject or which works better.
