I remember when my husband asked me to pick him up some oysters when I went to the grocery store. I thought it was a weird request coming from him. He wasn’t a big seafood fan. When I got home I asked him what they were for. He started to explain to me why he was eating oysters and what they can do for male reproductive health. It turns out that oysters are one of the many foods that men can eat to enhance male fertility. Here are 5 foods that improve male fertility.
5 Foods That Improve Male Fertility
Like I mentioned above oysters are great for men. They include zinc which helps in testosterone production. Most men are deficient in zinc. The great thing about zinc is that it’s easy on the wallet.
Beans are a source Folic Acid. Folic Acid plays a big part in the quality of sperm. “New research suggests that folic acid (in the B vitamin family) can boost sperm health. Men with low levels of folate had increased risks for sperm that contained too little or too many chromosomes. If an egg is fertilized with one of these abnormal sperms it could result in a birth defect such as downs syndrome, or an increase in miscarriage”. Source
Pomegranate contains tons of antioxidants. Those antioxidants protect the fatty acids sperm, thus increasing their quality. Pomegranate also helps produce surges of testosterone.
L-arginine helps increase sperm volume. L-arginine can be found in dark chocolate. It is best to get the darkest chocolate possible in order to receive its benefits.
Vitamin C is crucial in the male fertility diet. It is an antioxidant and it also prevents sperm from clumping together. Kale is an excellent source of vitamin C.
Using some of the ingredients above you can make a yummy fertility enhancing smoothie. You can use Kale (vitamin C), Pomegranate Juice or Orange Juice (antioxidants), Avocado (folic acid), and topped with Pumpkin Seeds(zinc)
