Your Sperm Reflects What You Eat!

Many scientific studies have shown that, worldwide, sperm quality and male fertility has declined over the last few decades. What gives? Well, last year in the journal Fertility and Sterility, experts explained that a low intake of antioxidants—found mostly in fruits and vegetables—is connected to low reproductive ability. Men who eat more fruits and vegetables have healthier sperm and fewer fertility problems.

Men who ate large amounts of meat and full fat dairy products had lower semen quality than those who ate fruits, vegetables and reduced fat dairy products. Foods such as citrus fruits, peppers and spinach lower oxidative stress (that’s a good thing–if you need an explanation there’s one here). That affects semen quality, and improves sperm concentration, mobility and structure.

Your sperm quality and the quality of your diet may go hand in hand. Eat well.
