The Four Basic Food Groups (in terms
Vitamins, minerals, water, and
amino acids (proteins) all play very important roles in semen production.
While that's an oversimplified list, these are the main ingredients that your semen is
Probably the best thing you can do to
healthy semen production is to provide your body with good nutrition. I'm not talking about being a
total health freak, but you should try to have a decent low fat diet with plenty of fresh vegetables and
fruits, "good" proteins, and plenty of water.
You should also
a daily multivitamin, which ensures that you're getting adequate levels of vitamins and
"What Can I Eat To
Provide Building Blocks For My Semen?"
The answer to this question depends somewhat on whether you're trying to increase your sperm cell
production, or raise your overall semen volume. If you want to increase
your fertility you should be thinking in terms of sperm cells (spermatozoa).
Sperm cell and fertility boosting nutrients and foods:
zinc: increases sperm cell
production - can be found in lamb,
vitamins C, E: improves production and motility (swimming action) of your sperm cells
selenium: improves sperm
motility as well as increasing sperm production
lycopene: found in
tomatoes (ketchup, etc), a number of studies have shown lycopene might
increase sperm count
Note: increasing male fertility
and sperm count by eating
good foods takes time, but proper nutrition can make a significant difference in your sperm count. In fact,
raising sperm count and fertility is easier than increasing semen volume
with food. Increasing semen volume is
often better achieved with a mix of herbs and a
selection of minerals and vitamins, which is why specially formulated sperm pills like Semenax
are your best option for semen volume.
Semen volume increasing nutrients:
water: probably the #1
restricting factor of low semen volume if you're dehydrated
amino acids (proteins) that are needed for semen production
Saw Palmetto: a herb known
to stimulate the glands associated with semen
Maca: a popular plant
known to raise testosterone levels in men
Tribulus Terrestris: this
well-known herb also increases testosterone production
Things That Can Inhibit Proper Sperm Development
Certain foods and a number of other things that you ingest will actually inhibit healthy sperm production.
Countless studies have found that smoking lowers sperm count and motility, as
can heavy or binge drinking.
stop smoking: smoking
decreases male fertility and sperm count
no heavy drinking: excess
alcohol consumption slows sperm production
avoid strenuous exercise:
numerous studies have observed a decline in fertility when male subjects
frequently experience overexertion
avoid hot testicles: a
well documented correlation exists between heat and low male fertility, so
try to avoid hot baths, laptop computers, sitting on heated seats, etc.
"Other Than Food And Nutrients, Are There Any Options?"
There's no way around it: your semen is produced out of the things that you
ingest. If you're looking to stimulate more semen production, there are
a few things you can eat that can help your body.
Semen pills like Semenax
are formulated by doctors for the specific purpose of stimulating your body's
glands into producing more sperm cells and increasing semen volume.
Although foods can increase your semen production, if you're looking to
really boost your sperm production you need to look into taking something like a
