Today in the world, one in six couples has a problem with achieving pregnancy. The problem in 20 percent of cases is the poor quality of the male semen, and this is often associated with a lack of zinc and vitamins. Very often, these nutrients will prove not just the semen quality, but increase testosterone production and libido as well. And this is the reason you need to include more foods that contain these lacking substances. Here are some of them:
Pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, copper and vitamin K, and as an important component they possess anti-inflammatory properties that protect the body from cancer, arthritis and osteoporosis. Omega-3 fatty acids increase the blood flow to the genital organs.
Pomegranate juice improves erectile function and improves the quality of sperm. The results of a study showed that men and women who consumed a glass of pomegranate juice every day had an increased level of testosterone in the body, which increased sexual desire. The results of a research conducted at the University of Edinburgh say that lovers of this red drink have a 16 to 30 percent higher levels of testosterone than those who don’t consume it regularly.
Oysters are extremely rich in zinc, which is recommended in treating male infertility as it is an important element for the production of quality spermatozoids.
Garlic acts as a natural aphrodisiac and increases the production of sperm. It contains an ingredient called allicin that increases sperm endurance and improves blood circulation. The selenium present in garlic also contributes to better quality sperm.
A study in 2012, published in the journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, found that a small dose of the ingredient called EGYGG, present in green tea, neutralizes free radicals in the body and thus increases fertility.
