How is improving your diet related to sperm count and reproductive health? Read below to find out.
Similar to exercise, diet plays a fundamental role in overall health, circulation, promoting testosterone production, and improving reproductive health. The food we eat acts as the building blocks for our body to produce hormones fundamental to reproductive health.
While being obese or overweight can lead to reduced sperm counts, an unhealthy diet alone can negatively impact sperm health. Researchers have reported that diet is one of the many factors decreasing worldwide sperm counts, along with lifestyle habits like fitness and environmental toxins. To counteract this, there are specific foods that you can add to your diet that may be healthy for your sperm and reproductive system.
This list of foods that may enhance sperm health begins with fruits and vegetables. As you definitely learned early on in school, fruits and vegetables are fundamental to your diet. However, the ever-increasing use of pesticides and other environmental toxins (which may negatively impact sperm health) means that if possible you should choose to eat organic produce. If you are unable to eat organic produce, washing it well before consuming can be effective.
In addition to fruits and vegetables, there is a host of other foods that may help to improve semen quality, sperm, or fertility like oily sea fish, nuts, and seeds (unroasted and unsalted).
On the other side of the spectrum, a diet that includes factors like a lot of saturated and trans fats, low in fruits and vegetables, and high caloric consumption may contribute to reduced male fertility.
Improving diet and making other lifestyle choices like decreasing alcohol intake and quitting smoking may be beneficial to your fertility.
