If you want to improve your sperm mobility and quality, then try these foods which will help you do exactly that.
Dark Chocolate: It is said that men opt for dark chocolate over milk chocolate. Dark chocolate is known for the presence of L-arginine. Research indicates that chocolate aids in the release and increase of endorphins.
Pomegranates: These red ruby pearls are helpful in increasing the sperm production. The presence of antioxidants in pomegranates help fight a particular chemical called malondialdehyde, which is said to decrease sperm count. A Turkish study showed that rats fed pomegranate juice daily for seven weeks showed an increase in the production of antioxidants that help protect the vulnerable fatty acids in sperm against oxidation.
Bananas: Rich in vitamins, bananas have a special enzyme called bromelain. This enzyme is said to help boost men’s sperm.
Walnuts: They are a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids that, along with other polyunsaturated fatty acids, are needed for sperm to mature and work properly. Other foods, like fish oil and flaxseeds, also contain these compounds, but walnuts come in a convenient snack-and-go format. Studies show that eating walnuts helped increase men’s shape and size of their swimmers.
