Eat Right for Better Sperm

Diet_sperm_fertility_blog_august09.JPG According to the ASRM, about one third of all infertility cases are attributed to men. Low sperm count and motility are key factors in a male's inability to reproduce. A new study by the University of Murciahas has shown that a balanced diet can help increase the quality of a man's sperm. "A healthy, well-balanced diet is not just important for preventing diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, or hypertension, but it may be useful for preserving or improving your reproductive health too" said the study leader to Reuters Health. The men in the study who had normal semen ate more carbohydrates, fiber, vitamin C, lycopene, and folate in comparison to men with poor sperm quality. The study also found that men who ate foods with less protein and fat had a higher quality sperm. Men should be aware of their dietary habits and the potential effect that their lifestyle may have on their ability to reproduce.
