Veg Diet Boosts Sperm Count

Studies suggest that the secret to strong sperm is in your diet.

What we eat can affect our skin, hair, mood, and overall health. Now, scientists have found that diet may even affect the strength of sperm. In a recent study, researchers found that men who consumed more fruits and vegetables, foods rich in antioxidants, saw better sperm quality. The antioxidants are believed to help lower the level of oxidative stress, which can negatively affect sperm quality, and help boost sperm concentration and mobility. This built on the earlier evidence led by Jaime Mendiola, lead author and researcher at the University of Mendiola, that unveiled that men who eat larger quantities of meat and full-fat dairy have lower sperm quality than more herbivorous males. So men, dig into those greens to boost your baby-making abilities.
