Optimise sperm count

Increase sperm count

Try these tips to help optimise your sperm count

Aside from the ego boost it gives guys, having more semen and sperm to release assists supports and aids in the all the necessary stars that need to align to start the miracle of conception.

As well, healthy sperm production will likely lead to an increase in sexual desire — not that you need it, of course! The below tips are surely going to teach you something you didn’t already know about your sperm, fertility and Men’s health in general.

Try Supplements – not just drugs!

While certain drugs, such as marijuana (and all her illegal friends) and antifungal medicine, may hinder sperm production, others, like testosterone therapy, may help increase sperm production. As well, certain natural supplements promise to support healthy sperm production.

Drink Less

Alcohol affects your liver function, which, in turn, causes a dramatic rise in estrogen levels. So, as I’m sure you’ve already concluded yourself, this will interfere with sperm production because estrogen, not testosterone, will accumulate in your body. Even two drinks a day will have long-term effects on sperm production, so maybe you should put the beer down for today.

Eat Healthy, get Fit.

Believe it or not, your diet affects your sperm production big time. And although I’m sure you already know that a diet that’s low in fat, and high in protein, vegetables, and whole grains are good for your health, I bet you didn’t know that it’s also good for your sperm. Keep the boys healthy, speedy and in abundance by eating right.

Keep em Cool.

The reason your testicles hang from your body and don’t reside inside it like a woman’s ovaries, is because they need to be a few degrees cooler than the rest of your body. So wearing tight underwear or tight pants that keeps them pressed up against your 98.6° body is not a good idea. As well, sleep naked if you can, to ensure coolness.

Stop Smoking.

If you smoke, quit now. If it’s not bad enough that you already have bad breath and can’t taste anything, smoking also affects your sperm count. Not only do you have significantly less sperm than non-smoking men (22%), your little boys are also slower and smaller.
