Super Foods to Improve Sperm Counts
Walnuts, groundnuts (also known as peanuts) all contain the amino acid L-arginine, which is one of the building blocks of nitric oxide—a naturally occurring gas that helps guys maintains their hard-ons. Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids. A study by the Society for the Study of Reproduction found that daily consumption of 2.5 ounces or 70 grams of walnuts improved the sperm vitality, morphology, and motility in men aged between 21 and 35. Walnuts can be added as toppings to any salad or consumed directly as a snack.
Groundnuts also aid your efforts under the covers. They also help reduce cholesterol levels. The less cholesterol you have in your system, the easier it is for blood to circulate throughout your body and down, which can help you maintain a firmer erection longer. Thinking of getting nutty sexually; snap up this essential benefit of nuts.
4. Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is rich in two nutrients that are key to good bedroom performance: Niacin (with a quarter of your recommended daily value in two tablespoons) and vitamin E (75% of your DV in that same serving). In a study printed in the Journal of Sexual Health, men suffering from impotence who took a niacin supplement reported a significant improvement in their bedroom prowess. Peanut butter is also a good source of folate, which improves sperm quality.
The Aztecs referred to avocados as testicles because of their scrotum-like appearance. The green fruit is rich in potassium, vitamin B6 and vitamin E, nutrients that have been associated with increased libido. Plus, avocados’ good monounsaturated fats protect your heart and boost circulation, while their abundant minerals and carotenoids supply energy and stamina. For some creative ways to consume the fruit, stay clue to this page in the coming months as I let out these secrets!
All kinds of berries, including blueberries, strawberries, cherries, cranberries, and blackberries, contain powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidants quercetin and resveratrol. They are known to improve the sperm quality, count and motility. You can consume a handful of berries every day, either made into a smoothie or topped with yogurt for a delicious treat.
Once your heart’s racing, strawberries can help get the blood flow where it needs to go. They’re packed with anthocyanins, colorful plant chemicals which help keep your arteries unclogged, boosting circulation. Plus, they’re rich in vitamin C, which has been linked to higher sperm counts.
Cherries are rich in anthocyanins, plant chemicals which clean your arteries of plaque, keeping them open for business. That has a direct effect on blood flow below the belt. So make them a regular snack: One cup clocks in at fewer than 100 calories and boasts B vitamins, cancer-fighting flavonoids and three grams of fiber.
Hard men they say have healthy hearts, so eat lots of bananas for potassium, which is great for your heart and circulation. Bananas have a rare enzyme called bromelain that regulates sex hormones. Getting enough potassium helps keep your sodium levels under control, stopping your blood pressure from hitting the roof and reducing your risk of heart problems. If you eat too much salt and don’t like bananas, get your potassium from oranges or potatoes. Bananas also contain vitamins A, B1 and C, which boost the stamina in men and improve their ability to produce sperm.
Potatoes—whether they’re the white or the sweet variety—are a great source of potassium. This nutrient boosts circulation, which keeps blood flowing where it needs to go and boosts your bedroom pleasure. (It also counteracts salt-related bloating, so you’ll look better naked too.)
University of Texas recent findings suggest that men who drink two to three cups of java a day—or 85 to 170 milligrams of caffeine from other beverages—are 42 percent less likely to have erectile dysfunction than those who consume up to seven milligrams of the stimulant daily. And those who throw back four to seven cups were 39 percent less likely to have the condition than their less jittery counterparts. The trend holds true among overweight, obese and hypertensive men, but not for those with diabetes, a condition that often causes the issue. So, how exactly does drinking coffee keep things going strong? The scientists say that the stimulant triggers a series of reactions in the body that ultimately increase blood flow south.
10. Green Tea
The brew is rich in compounds called catechins, which have been shown to blast away belly fat and speed the liver’s capacity for turning fat into energy. But that’s not all: Catechins also boost desire by promoting blood flow to your nether region. “Catechins kill off free radicals that damage and inflame blood vessels, increasing their ability to transport blood,” says Cassie Bjork, RD, LD of Healthy Simple Life. “Catechins also cause blood vessel cells to release nitric oxide, which increases the size of the blood vessels, leading to improved blood flow,” she explains. Blood flow to the genitals = feeling of excitement, so sipping green tea will make you want to get it on. I’d suggest drinking four cups a day to feel the full effects.
