Diet and Sperm

December 3rd, 2012 § 0 comments

Many men ask me about diet and sperm, and I’ve written about it previously in this blog. The same scientists that suggested then that lower intake of carbohydrates, fiber, folate, vitamin C and lycopene and a higher intake of protein and total fat had worse sperm than men with the opposite diet recently studied the semen analyses of men on two different diets, a Western one with lots of red and processed meat, refined grains, pizza, snacks, high-energy drinks and sweets, and a Prudent one with enriched in fish, chicken, fruit, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. Men with the Prudent diet had better swimming sperm.

So, if you’re looking for a “sperm friendly” diet, eat more fish, chicken, fruit, vegetables, legumes and whole grains, and less red and processed meat, refined grains, pizza, snacks, high-energy drinks and sweets, But don’t drive yourself crazy. A pizza or burger now and then keeps you sane.
