For Men: 8 Things To Take For Healthy Sperm

By  | 

Few men know that good diet is essential for healthy sperm. And according to a study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, a healthy intake of nutrients like vitamin C, E, folate and zinc can boost sperm quality.

Today we will share with you 8 foods you should eat for a healthy sperm.

 

1. Tomatoes

 

Lycopene has been found to significantly improve sperm quality and tomatoes are one of the best sources of lycopene. Lycopene can boost sperm count up to 70%.

2. Oysters

Oysters are a good source of zinc which has been found to increase sperm production and sperm potency. A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that men who took zinc sulphates daily saw a 74 per cent increase in sperm count after 26 weeks.

3. Walnuts

Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and a study by the Society for the Study of Reproduction found that eating 2.5 oz or around 75g of walnuts daily increases sperm motility, vitality and morphology.

4. Eggs

Including egg in your diet will help boost sperm count and fertility because eggs are rich in vitamin E, D, B6, B12, iron, copper and other sperm boosting properties like zinc.

5. Salmon

Salmon or other fatty fish like mackerel, sardines and tuna should be added to your diet for a healthy sperm because they are good source of omega 3 fatty acids which are known to give higher quality sperm.

6. Water

Drinking enough water is another way of improving your sperm count and quality. Semen is water based and staying hydrated will help improve semen production.

7. Beef

Adding beef to your diet would help boost sperm production and quality due to a nutrient known as L-carnitine which is found in beef. A study by European Academy of Andrology found that men who supplemented their diet with L-carnitine increased their sperm concentration and motility significantly.

8. Pomegranates

Researchers have found that consumption of pomegranates improves sperm quality. According to a Turkish study, consumption of pomegranates increases the production of antioxidants that help protect the vulnerable fatty acids in sperm against oxidation
