Male infertility is caused by a variety of factors, and diet is also of great importance. Here are a few tips to help men keep a good chance of paternity.
Numerous scientific studies have shown a link between the quality of sperm cells, their number and a healthy diet. In 2013, the researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health concluded that carotenoids, or pigments in plant foods that act as antioxidants, positively affect the quality of sperm, which helps in the treatment of male infertility.
And here are some useful tips related to the male power:
In 2012, the scientists from the University of California found that men are recommended to eat half a cup or 60 grams of nuts a day. This improves the speed of sperm cells movement and affects male potency.
Drinking coffee has a positive effect on the rate of sperm – which is a key success factor for fertilizing a woman. If during the treatment of male infertility doctors understand that their patients’ sperm cells do not move fast enough, they often ask men to drink coffee before sex.
Limit your intake of soy
In 2008, the researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found that high levels of soy products in men’s diet were linked to low sperm amount.
Avoid saturated fats
Saturated fats are found in butter, poultry skin, as well as meats. In 2012, Danish researchers found that eating a lot of saturated fat reduces the number of sperm cells.
