If you been diagnosed with a low sperm count, check out these top tips for naturally improving your sperm count.
Low sperm count, production and motility are often bothering men nowadays, since pollution, erratic lifestyle and stress factors are higher than ever. Anyway, it is true that you are what you eat, so consuming the right food can indeed increase sperm count and, thus, treat male fertility problems.
The good news is that these recommended foods are simple and delicious and they will improve your general health condition, besides treating infertility problems. Adopting a healthy diet will not only increase chances of being more fertile, but it will help you regain your health and live a longer life.
Here are five foods which will likely improve the sperm count:
Vitamin A stimulates healthy sperm production for improving fertility. The lack of it was linked by specialists to slow sperm flow. Reliable supplies of vitamin A are peppers, especially the red ones, dried apricots, oatmeal, dark green lettuce, spinach, broccoli and carrots.
Sperm viability and motility are increased by this vitamin. It is found mainly in most of the yellow vegetables and fruits, strawberries, cooked tomatoes, kale and sweet potatoes. They contain antioxidants which combat free radicals and treat the low level of sperm and fertility dysfunctions.
A low amount of zinc in a male body leads to diminished sperm count and low testosterone levels. It increases production of testosterone and raises the semen levels in men. It is responsible with the healthy cell division in the first stages of conceiving. The good news is that zinc is commonly found in many foods, such as eggs, pumpkin seeds, turkey meat, beef, seafood, oatmeal, corn and yogurt.
Low levels of folic acid can have bad consequences such as birth defects, due to chromosomal abnormalities. Increase food like leafy dark green vegetables, avocados, whole grains, beans and fruit. In some cases even a folic acid supplement is to be considered.
Studies have shown that omega 3 and DHA are essential for male fertility. These acids increase the blood flow to the genital area, thus improving sexual function and cure low sperm levels. You find them in anchovies, crab, sardines, salmon, shrimp and walnuts.
