Foods That May Help Boost Male Fertility

When couples talk about fertility, they often think of a woman and whether she ovulates, has eggs, or can carry a child safely to term. While all of these things are important, often men can experience fertility issues, as well. They may not be sure what to do about it, or if there are important changes they can make to improve their chances of conceiving a child. Fortunately, simply changing their diet may be enough. Here are some of the best foods to boost male fertility.

Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are part of a healthy diet in general, and they have been shown to help sperm production and quality. This is not specific to any one fruit or vegetable, as there are many good options. Men can usually choose any of these they like, but should choose a variety of them if possible. It can improve sperm production after just a few weeks.

Different Kinds of Nuts

Surprisingly, a handful of peanuts every day can increase sperm production and quality, as well. The study that looked at it didn’t involve any other changes to the typical Western diet, which isn’t considered particularly healthy. Nuts have healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, along with polyphenols and fibers. Theoretically, a man can increase and improve his fertility simply by adding nuts to his diet.

Fish, for Omega-3s

For those with nut allergies, or anyone who doesn’t want to eat a lot of them for other reasons (like being high in calories), fish is a good choice. It offers a lot of Omega-3, which is also present in nuts in large amounts. There are several studies that show a link between Omega-3 and sperm quality, so any food high in this nutrient can help.

Helping men understand fertility issues is an invaluable way to give them the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their health. The more they and their partners know about any fertility concerns they have, the better they can work together on the best way to start or grow their families.
