You may have read that scientists are recording a decline in the production of quality sperm by men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
The report, which was published in the journal Human Reproduction said among these men, there has been a 52% decline in sperm concentration and a 59% decline in total sperm count over a nearly 40-year period ending in 2011.
This has become a major concern for Western men who are seeking assistance to reverse this trend.
Fortunately, the study is not suggesting an irreversible or permanently ‘doom’ situation, something can be done about it.
Sperm production and for the matter, the quality of it is based on a number of factors including what you eat or drink.
Excessive alcohol intake among men and women has been found to be associated with lower fertility rate. We will look at that in much detail in a subsequent post.
However, in looking at how to boost the production of quality sperms, there are some health foods we suggest that can help.
They are essentially foods that are rich in zinc, are antioxidants, rich in allicin, Vitamins A and C.
We’ll look at them more closely.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts increase sperm count and promote adequate blood flow to the genitals. They’re a tasty on-the-go snack and can be sprinkled on cereal or dessert. Alternatives to walnuts are crab and pumpkin seeds.
Spinach is a great source of folic acid, which is essential for the development of sperm. Like other leafy vegetables, Spinach helps to replenish your folate level when it runs low. Research has established that men with low folate level may have malformed sperm; meaning the sperm will have a difficult time swimming to fertilize the egg.
Bananas help your body produce healthier sperm, as well as increase your sperm productivity. Because of an anti-inflammatory enzyme called bromelain, consuming more bananas helps to regulate sex hormones by boosting count and motility. Bananas are full of vitamin A, B1 and C, which all have a very positive relationship with quality sperm production.
Chocolates are good but not all chocolates will boost your production of quality sperm. Dark chocolates are precisely what you need if you wish to boost your production of quality sperm. Indeed, dark chocolate is one thing you don’t want to overlook when it comes to quality sperm production and sperm count. It has been proven to double sperm and semen volume.
Dark chocolates contain are high in antioxidants are able to fight against toxins and free radicals that affect sperm production.
PS: Avoid going overboard with this. It may lead to putting on weight which may intend reduce testosterone and eventually fertility.
Ginseng for testosterone
Ginseng is an ancient health food that has for several years been used to treat infertility. The health food has been found to boost the level of testosterone and increases blood circulation in the body, especially to the genitals.
The deciduous shrub is a great health food for increasing sperm count and semen quality. Aside from the fact that it is full of antioxidants and helps to right against toxins and free radicals in the bloodstream, it also makes a good health food for strengthening the immune system.
Garlic for sperm motility
As stated in the introduction, foods rich in allicin are great for improving sperm quality, although not directly. Allicin helps blood circulate in the body very well and into the genitals. It also saves the sperm from damage.
Garlic contains another magic element called selenium, which improves sperm motility. Having between 2 and 4 cloves of garlic a day is good enough to work some magic.
