How to Help Improve Male Fertility

Improving male fertility has become a true necessity, due to the fact that nowadays, more and more couples are dealing with fertility problems. The impossibility to conceive is not necessarily a women’s problem, as the majority of people tend to believe. In fact, men suffer from infertility in the same proportion as women do.

Improving fertility in men equals to improving the quality of their sperm, so that they can be able to conceive healthy babies, anytime they want. But this process does not have to imply a severe or even painful treatment, and there are various ways throughout which fertility can be improved. A healthy lifestyle is essential, especially into a world dominated by noise and pollution. A healthy lifestyle is determined by various factors, such as the following.

Healthy diet

A healthy diet, composed of many fruits and vegetables, is meant to keep our bodies clean and charged with a wide selection of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients. It is also extremely important to avoid saturated fats, and hydrogenated oils, such as margarine, and replace them with the best substitutes, as for example olive oil. It has been scientifically proven that being overweight visibly affects the quality of the sperm, so this is one of the things that should definitely be taken into consideration.


In case the food we consume do not provide us with all the necessary nutrients, we can choose to complete our diet with a series of beneficial supplements. For example, L-carnitine is one of the most recommended supplements used to improve male fertility. Apart from this, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc are also extremely beneficial. Taking 500 mg of Vitamin C and Vitamin E two times daily, helps at the impregnation of sperm, due to the fact that they are antioxidants.

Avoid alcohol & caffeine

Used in large amounts, alcohol and caffeine could also cause considerable damage to our reproductive system. An occasional cup of coffee or glass of wine will not cause any damage, but try to keep your intake in moderation to best assist your fertility.

Just say no

Say NO to Marijuana, Cannabis and Viagra! These substances do not just affect the quality of the sperm, but in time, they can also lead to impotence. Marijuana affects both hormones and erectile strength. On the other hand, for those who have thought that Viagra increases fertility, they should know that researche in this domain proved the opposite. Actually, Viagra is overstimulating the sperm, by affecting a critical process called the “acrosome reaction”. While great for men’s libido, it is not great for men’s fertility.

Stay relaxed

Last but not least, though it may be easier said than done, try to avoid as more as possible getting stressed! Stress is tightly related to a lower production of testosterone, a hormone that is absolutely crucial in improving male fertility!
