Eat Your Greens
Research shows men with a low sperm count are still fertile if the sperm is in good condition, so ensuring your diet supports the condition of your sperm is essential. A diet high in antioxidants is proven to boost sperm health; try to include plenty of colourful fruit and vegetables that are naturally rich in vitamins C and E, both potent antioxidants. Zinc – found in meat, seafood, pulses, eggs and nuts – can also boost testosterone and raise sperm count, while selenium, found in Brazil nuts and garlic, has been shown to have a positive effect on sperm motility. Omegas 3 and 6 are also important for improving blood flow. Salmon, mackerel and sardines are the best sources; flaxseed oil is a good alternative for those who don’t eat fish.
