Foods That Increase Your Sperm Count
When it comes to baby-making, there’s more to be concerned about than sperm count. There’s also motility and the shape of your sperm. But first you want to make sure your ranks (read: balls) are full of soldiers. Consider that as the baseline for your reproductive abilities.
The normal sperm count ranges from 15 million to more than 200 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Yes, that’s a lot of, um, fluid. And to be considered to have a low count, you would need to have less than 15 million or fewer than 39 million sperm total per ejaculate. As we know, you chances of getting Bae preggo decreases as your sperm count decreases.
To be clear, having a low sperm count does not mean you are infertile. Plenty of men father children and have lower-than-normal sperm densities. In fact, Dr. Seth Cohen, assistant professor of Urology and OBGYN at NYU Langone Medical Center, says that unless you’re trying (and failing) to father a child right now, there’s no reason to start obsessing about your count.
“It actually causes more harm than good to know, if you’re just dating,” Dr. Cohen said while explaining that some men might start trying to fix a problem where no real problem exists. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t start doing the everyday things that promote healthy sperm and a healthy sperm count.
And that starts with eating right.
“The most important thing a guy can do is to treat your body like a temple,” Dr. Cohen said. “Would you smoke in a temple?” No, you probably wouldn’t. You want to simply put things in your body that help you stay healthy.”
According to Dr. Cohen, there’s no research that says that one particular diet is going to multiply your swimmers or make you more fertile than another. “Eating clean is never a bad thing,” he said. “If you’re eating junky processed foods, it’s not going to be good for your body and it’s not going to be good for your sperm.”
Fine. There’s no food that going to turn your boys into secret egg-fertilizing super agents. And there are some things you can’t control. Varicoceles are a common cause of low sperm production. A varicocele is an enlargement of the veins within the scrotum and must be repaired with surgery. A history of cancer, increased estrogen or hormonal imbalances are other reasons. But there are things you can start doing now to help your case and that starts with your diet.1. Oysters
You might know these to be an aphrodisiac (even if they really might not be) that gets the party started. But it’s much more than that. Oysters have been considered an aphrodisiac since ancient Roman times. Rumor is Giacomo Casanova, the legendary Italian lover, consumed 50 oysters every day.
Oyster extract is a type of health supplement derived from the essences of oysters, a shellfish. The extract is meant to amplify the nutritional and health benefits of oysters. More so among men who are suffering from reproductive health issues. Some studies found that oyster extract could improve prostate wellness, sperm quality, and promote better testicular health.
Oysters are loaded with zinc, which help increase sperm production and sperm potency and testosterone, which are all clutch when creating tiny humans inside of your lady’s belly. They help improve libido, arousal and sexual performance specifically among men. The zinc and vitamin D in oyster extract help stimulate the sex drive thus, improving sexual desire in men.
Zinc is an essential mineral that plays an important role in improving testosterone levels as well as sperm production. Zinc deficiency has been linked to impotence and erectile dysfunction so an increase could provide an extra age. For the record, you should think about sharing, as oysters also help regulate libido in both men and women. Oysters are also high in protein, vitamin D, vitamin C, vitamin B12, iron, copper and selenium.
Eight oysters a week is a good place to start. The zinc can be stored in our body, so there’s no need to eat them daily.
