Curejoy Expert Claude C Butler Explains:
Sperm count, quality, mobility and motility can be affected by genetic conditions, hormonal imbalances, environmental toxins or medical conditions or medications. Sperm production is impacted by excessive heat around your testicles, lack of proper nutrition and blood circulation, and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Some habits to avoid to keep your sperm count from dropping off are wearing tight innerwear, avoiding proximity of laptops and cell phones (magnetic radiation and heat), alcohol abuse, smoking, stress, intake of toxins like pesticides in food, and estrogen mimicking foods like soy foods.
Natural herbal supplements to balance the nutrient profile (especially zinc) are available in alternative medicine like Homoeopathy and Ayurveda. While most of these work on reducing the stress factor associated with low sperm count, others like ginseng work towards improving circulation and supporting the reproductive system. Supplementing with essential amino acids like L-Lysine, L-Arginine, L-carnitine improves quantity and mobility of sperms.
Try enriching your diet with some natural foods to boost sperm production and quality of sperms:
- Zinc sources: Zinc deficiencies can dramatically reduce sperm count. Consume zinc rich foods like Liver, oysters, beef, lamb, venison, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, yogurt, turkey, green peas, and shrimp.
- Selenium: Critical for sperm creation and present in brazil nuts, liver, snapper, cod, halibut, tuna, salmon, sardines, shrimp, crimini mushrooms, and turkey.
- CoQ10: An element necessary for energy production in body cells which also improves sperm health and mobility, is most abundant in seafood and organ meats and mostly obtained through supplements.
- Vitamin E: A potent infertility remedy, it can be found in sunflower seeds, almonds, olives, spinach, papaya, and dark leafy greens.
- Folic Acid: Low levels of folate affect the levels of chromosomes in sperms and abnormalities can result in fetal birth defects. Eat folate rich foods like liver, lentils, pinto beans, garbanzo beans, asparagus, spinach, black beans, navy beans, kidney beans, and collard greens.
- B12: Increases sperm count. Found in clams, oysters, muscles, liver, caviar (fish eggs), fish, crab, lobster, beef, lamb, cheese, eggs.
- Vitamin C: Improves sperm quality, protects it from DNA damage, and improves sperm motility. Abundant in plants and fruits including red peppers, broccoli, cranberries, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, and citrus fruits.
My husband had a bad problem with this...It has been quite a long time since I actually went to the doctor.Recently I have been using natural home remedies for pretty much everything. Not only are hospitals and doctors expensive but sometimes they can be useless. I would highly suggest that everybody learn more about natural remedies.
